The Rumors

“There’s a rumor on dread right now about a possible bohemia exit scam, might be related.” – adds another Reddit user @hoi4enjoyer.

A DDoS Attack or an Exit Scam?

Just 2 weeks ago the Bohemia market officially confessed that the market experienced a DDoS attack. They published a letter on their official website. However, the site didn’t mention any DDoS attacks after this, so one of the reasons for numerous issues might really be an exit scam.

What is an Exit Scam?

Exit scams frequently take place when the proprietors or administrators of a darknet market abruptly shut down the platform and disappear, absconding with the funds held in escrow or within user accounts. This form of deception leaves both buyers and sellers on the marketplace without any means to recover their funds or conclude ongoing transactions.

Looking at issues that users have with Bohemia market, the platform really might be preparing for an exit scam. In this case, thousands of users will lose their funds forever.
