Not terribly long ago, a news story circulated on the bitcoinosphere of a new bitcoin mining hardware company called Boscombe Pierlytic Miners. The company announced three miners with impressive specifications and even opened up pre-ordering.
Following the story, however, word began to spread that the Boscombe operation was nothing more than a scam. There’s an entire thread on Bitcointalk dedicated to the topic.
So when a commenter on our site noted simply “This is a scam”, we became curious and felt it be the responsible thing to reach out to the company and allow them to make a statement. We asked what Boscombe Pierlytic would say in response to the accusations.
The company told us the following in an email:
its very difficult at the moment to say that we are not scam because we have no miner in hands. after we have the first miner in our hands we will provide videos.
our registered company is existing with our office and warehouse in prague. we will provide some additional photos of our warehouse and factory
We aren’t sure who at the company sent us the reply, as it simply came from “support”, but we thought we’d share this anyway.
