MineBase is probably a Russian Karatbars recovery scam

The just lately revealed Karatbars Worldwide reboot is lacking one factor: Harald Seiz.

Though it made it to my editorial notes as I researched MineBase, I figured the truth that Karatbars credentials could possibly be used to log in to MineBase, and excerpts from Seiz sprinkled all through the location, was sufficient to make it official.

A BehindMLM reader seen one thing unusual in regards to the LinkedIn hyperlink on MineBase’s web site although…

…and now I’m considering the entire thing is a Russian restoration rip-off.

The case for MineBase being a Russian restoration rip-off

The LinkedIn hyperlink on MineBase’s .COM area factors to the Russian model of the web site:

The 2 formally supported MineBase web site languages are Russian and English:

MineBase’s web site was developed by RiArt, a Russian company:

MineBase’s TOS paperwork had been authored on a Russian language system:

That is the case on each the MineBase .IO and .COM web sites.

The very fact of the matter is we nonetheless don’t know who’s behind Acua Wellington, the primary Karatbars restoration rip-off.

We don’t understand how they obtained maintain of the KaratBars Worldwide affiliate database.

What we do know is their first level of contact was an e mail to Karatbars associates. This has occurred once more with MineBase.

Harald Seiz being credited as Dr. something is weird, a lot the much less a string of initials. I don’t recall Seiz ever citing himself as a Dr.

Given how pompous he comes off as, if Seiz was a Dr. I discover it onerous to consider it wouldn’t be in each Karatbars Worldwide communication ever despatched out.

Then there’s the MineBase dev workforce, who’re all offered as Indians (or from round that area). All however one are represented by inventory IT photographs, and we are able to’t affirm any of them truly exist.

Lastly, Seiz hasn’t talked about MineBase on any of his social media profiles. In truth Seiz has been MIA for a couple of yr. His final FaceBook and Instagram posts are dated July fifth, 2021.

If Seiz was working MineBase, wouldn’t he have not less than talked about it post-launch? It needs to be famous Seiz by no means talked about or addressed Acua Wellington both.

MineBase’s official YouTube channel is stuffed with voiced over movies and inventory footage. No one has bodily fronted the corporate.

Feedback on all of the movies are additionally turned off.

The case for MineBase being an precise Karatbars reboot

MineBase’s .COM area is definitely registered to Karatbars Worldwide GmbH. This might after all be bogus data but it surely differentiates itself from the MineBase .IO area.

Rimma Ismailova is cited as MineBase’s “internet designer” on its .COM web site. This matches up with RiArt’s web site:

Take into accout although Rima Ismailova may not exist as depicted.

MineBase’s .IO web site is only a login kind. Given the emails simply went out, it’s what I’d count on for a web site not able to be shared with the world but.

MineBase’s .COM web site is fleshed out and full of data, this can be a lot of effort for a restoration rip-off.


I’m leaning in direction of MineBase being one other Acua Wellington sort reload rip-off. Acua Wellington by no means took off and was fairly suspicious. So it’s attainable the scammers behind it are attempting once more.

If that’s the case then there are nonetheless issues that don’t add up. Like why are there two MineBase web sites? If the .COM is being run by reboot scammers, why is it way more developed than the .COM providing?

Additionally why are there two web site domains to start with?

Maybe extra worryingly for Karatbars buyers, how did these scammers get their Karatbars login credentials (once more)?

Has Harald Seiz bought the Karatbars affiliate database? Was it hacked and bought, presumably a number of occasions?

There’s sufficient doubt right here to set alarm bells off. Granted MLM crypto Ponzi schemes are normally shady to start with, however this simply feels off upon nearer inspection.

If Harald Seiz doesn’t make a private look quickly, I’m considering MineBase will go the identical away Acua Wellington has.

That’s nothing additional will occur, leaving those that did present data questioning who they gave it to.

If the Karatbars database has been bought or compromised, these reload scams may not essentially be about compromising accounts.

Step one in direction of identification theft could be confirming data – by getting buyers to log in with their Karatbars credentials.

Past that the potential scammers have but to point out their hand.

Pending a private look from Harald Seiz explaining what on Earth is occurring, I’d be cautious of interacting with something obtained by way of an e mail deal with you’ve related to Karatbars.
