Peter Shepherd came out today to make a public announcement about what happened with Hexabot on our Unofficial Telegram Super Group. This article will highlight the facts leading up to Hexabot going offline indefintely and answer everyone’s concerns on whether or not Hexabot just did one of the most brilliant exit scams in the history of HYIPs.
Recently, an anonymous individual (not so anonymous at the end) started an a campaign against Hexabot, its founder, its community of users, and my website HexabotReview.com.
On November 22 and 29, 2017, he registered two URLs: hexabotscamreview(dot)com and ishexabotreal(dot)com.
The purpose of this article is to prove to you how hypocritical and illogical his claims are and to explore the reasons why he would embark on a personal vendetta against Hexabot and its community. So let’s begin…
Common sense is not so common
This individual mentions he actually made some money from Hexabot:
“Actually, I’ll tell the truth. I’ve made my money back. Yes, I’ve made the money I invested plus the 7% fee that’s charged when you withdraw. I suggest that if you have profited, pull your money out to. Better yet, don’t deposit in the first place.”
But he has a problem with the goose that laid him the golden egg:
“It’s unsustainable. It’s very likely that at one point, this system will crash and disappear. Don’t be there when it does. Let me explain, it’s impossible for this system to return 2% very long. When it crashes, don’t be there.”
SMART TIP: This may have been a good read for him to save him so much time and trouble.
That’s why he created the website – so he can be the White Knight to save us all from the evils of Hexabot and its affiliates:
“If I keep one person from getting screwed, I’m happy.”
He says there are many red flags with Hexabot.
One red flag is that he couldn’t find the Hexabot company logo displayed at the business address on Google Maps Street View and Google Maps was not accurate with the building number:
“A lot of people have cited that “Peter” is very open about his business practices. I mean, the business address is right there. I’ve seen it. I also looked it up. Didn’t see any Hexabot business associated with the address. 93 Wigmore St, Marylebone, London W1U 1HJ, UK. Pull it up on google maps. Notice that the building itself doesn’t identify as 93 Wigmore, it identifies as 95. Minor detail.”
SMART TIP: Not every business need a glowing neon sign out front to be real. Google Map Street View issues have nothing to do with the company.
Another red flag is Peter’s name is too common and that he can’t find social media traces of him.
“Common name. Fairly difficult, dare I say… impossible to find any record of this guy on the web other than Hexabot. Maybe he does exist. IDK. I can’t find him.”
SMART TIP: If a name is common, you should be able to find many people named Peter Shepard. Yet there’s no trace of any “Peter Shepards”? Oxymoronic. Must Peter list his company affiliation on his social profile? What if Peter doesn’t want to be public about a company because he manages a fund of millions and he doesn’t want to be a target? All reasonable conclusions, except the author’s.
So, he’s really pulling some strings here to make a case, but I’ll continue…
Third red flag (get ready for this one…) HexabotReview.com.
“Pretty scammy to write up a review of your own website using a second website YOU created. They then use that website to blatantly advertise various features of Hexabot in a blog like format. Also, the second site is listed through a proxy domain out of the United States. Hexabot.top is out of Panama. Totally fake. Whatever though.”
I am honored to have you feature my website on featured on his site. Perhaps the high quality web design made him think that was on par with hexabot.top’s professional website and we are the same people?
Sorry to burst anyone’s bubble, but I’m not Peter. We are from different countries and he most likely Peter has way better coding skills than me.
SMART TIP: First, don’t accuse someone of pretending to be someone else when you have zero proof. Makes you look like an triggered snowflake. If you would have contacted me thru my website’s contact form or via Telegram, you would have easily found out I am not the developer and there would be hundreds of other members in our unofficial Telegram channel that can vouch for me, including many of who I have interacted with using real IDs.
Second, that is not a “proxy domain” but a registrar’s contact information. The fact you see both hexabot.top’s registrar information is different from that of my site should suggest to you that we are both different people using different hosting or domain registrar’s. Once again, you are blinded by your own determination to get the henchmen at Hexabot where your own logic makes you sound silly!
Lastly, “shoot the messenger if you don’t like the message” doesn’t make you look intelligent. Hillary can tell you how that is making her look in the public spotlight.
He claims Hexabot is a Pyramid Scheme because of a 1-tier affiliate program:
“Ahhh.. Yes! You get paid to bring in your friends because he wants to share this opportunity with the world! 5% of what they deposit or something like that. Sounds a lot like a pyramid scheme doesn’t it? I was invited, I joined, I deposited. If you go to your profile, you can even see your “Upline” AKA your level in the pyramid. I was about 4 layers down.”
Then he proceeds to promotes his Amazon affiliate link:
“Shop on Amazon through my link or click below. It would benefit me a little at no extra cost to you.”
And then claims Hexabot is also a Ponzi Scheme:
“There’s no bot. The system is likely giving small amounts of people’s deposits back to current members. See Ponzi Scheme.”
SMART TIP: While often confused for each other, pyramid schemes and Ponzi schemes are different from each other. You can’t be a Pyramid and also a Ponzi. And next time, read this entire article. A desktop version of the bot software is launching soon. *wink*
Then suggests anyone involved with Hexabot are stupid and dumb:
“Thanks for reading! Invest intelligently.”
And of course, he begs for crypto donations because he has money troubles:
“I really only built this site to save people from getting screwed… However, I wouldn’t be mad if you hooked me up for my troubles. No obligation though! 🙂 “
By actually reading what this author says on his website, I became really intrigued about this individual.
While it would make sense why a person with money trouble want to make money with Hexabot, what intrigued me is why this person would proceed to bite and attack the hand that fed him and does not even show an ounce of appreciation for the money he made.
Instead of joining user communities and asking questions to learn more about the how things work, he spends money he needs to save to buy multiple domains and doubles down more money for the privacy feature. And then he tries to monetize his sites by begging for crypto donations and clicks on his Amazon affiliate links while attacking how evil Hexabot’s affiliate links are.
I have a few theories:
- It’s not about getting back at Hexabot for losing money. He said he MADE money and nobody has lost money to date.
- Maybe because he’s promoting a competing investment program?
- He’s triggered or butthurt over something related to Hexabot. Maybe a friend or loved one got scammed before by a HYIP so he thinks all HYIPs are the same?
- Maybe his faith emboldens him to save others from crypto scams so he is doing a public service with his hard work.
To explore the motives further, I had to dig a little deeper to find out who this person really is…
Who’s Behind It All?
The individual bought privacy protection on all his domains and has put effort into remaining untraceable. But he made a mistake on his website, and through this mistake, I was able to find out his real name, where he lives in the United States, social media sites, and other personal details.
I do not wish to share how I did this nor what the information is because I have no intention of doxing him.
So A***** if you are reading this, you may want to reach out to me on my website and I’ll tell you what to do to beef up your site’s security and privacy protection for free. (I’m a former web developer and IT guy).
You have a pretty cool Instagram though. I love your photography skills and creativity.
It also seems to me your favorite coin is Litecoin. You and I have something in common!
My findings conclude that A***** does not seem to have any previous exerience with investing or making money with crypto.
But that’s okay, we all have to start somewhere and that’s what a community is for…
One can be sincere, but sincerely wrong.
I believe that A***** is a semi-religious guy and has good intentions. He seems like the type that would want to put friends and family before money and protect them from scams.
Personally, I’ve been scammed more than once before so I know how it feels.
But brah, despite your skepticism of Hexabot, we can help you.
I cannot speak for everyone in the community, but I am certain more than a handful of us are more than happy to provide tips on how to make money with crypto and help you alleviate money troubles with OR without Hexabot.
All you gotta do is reach out and ask people that have walked the path before you.
And even though you marginalized us all of us unintellegent beings at the snake oil salesman level, we will forgive you.
Did you know we have a lot of intelligent people here in the Hexabot community from all walks of life?
We got network engineers, day traders, accountants, crypto miners, programmers, CEOs, teens who are aspiring entrepreneurs, hedgefund managers, chefs, and much more.
We got folks with high net worths that have the ability to gamble 5 to 6 figures in Hexabot at any given time.
Would you like to get to know them, their network, or at least pick their minds?
Brah. Don’t let your ego or hatred of something blindside you.
Perhaps you assumed everyone in Hexabot is dumb enough to deposit their life savings and want to get rich quick just beacause they read my blog or learned about Hexabot.
Is it possible that some of us just simply want to gamble, make or lose a few bucks, learn from others, or make new friends?
Casinos are legit right? Certainly most people do not go there for an investment opportunity.
SMART TIP: HYIP’s are like casinos for crypto enthusiasts. They are not for conservative investors. Also, before you marginalize a group of people you don’t know anything about, it’s wise to try to get to know these people and WHY they did something. That’s the right thing to do.
So that I do not turn this article into a novel I will end it here. I hope everyone learned a thing or two reading this article. More importantly, I hope this article addresses any confusion or concerns you may have if you have came across A*****’s websites.
A******, I wish you best of luck in the crypto journey and hope it can help you solve your money troubles.
Hexabot, thank you for continuing to pay out consistently and working hard to develop the software and backend. We look forward for you to launch a desktop (PC/Mac) version of the bot software soon that has more features to allow advanced users to customize their trading experience. I know many Hexabot members will be willing to invest even more on your platform when this new product is released.
Hexabot Community, thank you to all the admins and each one of you for making our growing 700+ Telegram community vibrant, fun, and educational. Hexabot related or not, because of you guys, you have made many people’s crypto journey a lot more fun and enlightening.

Hexabot’s high payout can no way be sustainable, nor can its arithmatically increasing free Bitcoin faucet. Bitcoin is limited to 21 million coins and there’s no way everyone can be millionaires, therefore Hexabot must be a scam! Let’s take a closer look at the validity of these claims…
Today, Monday, November 20, 2017 marks my third full week, “Swing Trade” pay day in Hexabot. And coincidentally, this week is Thanksgiving week which means there is so much to be thankful for! Let’s take at my portfolio performance this past three weeks…
Hexabot just upgraded its platform to allow for 100% compounding of all your earnings after receiving many requests from its user base. (Previously, the maximum was 75%.) So what is compounding and what does that mean for you? Read on.
On approximately November 18th, when block 494,784 is mined, a hard fork enabling the bitcoin network to carry 2MB blocks is expected to occur. This follows the soft fork upgrade earlier this year that added Segregated Witness (SW) signatures to the network. Many refer to the combination of these upgrades as the New York Agreement (NYA) or SW2X (or SegWit2x), which was supported by a majority of the consumer facing industry, including Blockchain, as well as miners.
After the chain split happens, Hexabot has annouced it will give all its users the opportunity to withdraw the new 2x coins, dubbed “B2X.”
According the Founder and Developer of Hexabot Peter Shepard, “In case if it becomes valuable, we will test our bots with that coin, and if it performs well, it will be added to the Hexabot, even in that case (all users) will be able to withdraw it without any fees.”
Lastly, Peter also noted that “this is just another ‘Bitcoin Cash’.”
Hexabot just launched its first promotion and is giving away five Ledger Nano S cryptocurrency wallets (a $67.41 + taxes/shipping value). The 5 lucky individuals will have to play a “guess the number game” between 0 and 5000 and those that are the first to guess the numbers will win one. Read on for the official rules…
UPDATE: I made a video to show me withdrawing $550 worth of Bitcoin to prove Hexabot indeed does pay for reals.
Good morning Crypto World. Exactly 7-days ago, I deposited a small amount of Litecoin (LTC) and Bitcoin (BTC) and selected the 7-day “Swing Trade” bot then wondered… Does Hexabot really pay? Is it like so many of those other scams out there that take your money and run? Since today is the seventh day, it should be payday 22-24% return on my original deposit as advertised. So here’s what I see on my dashboard after logging online this morning…
Dash has just been added to Hexabot. Users can now make DASH deposits.
The minimum deposit is 0.1 DASH (~$28.50 USD).
Dash (formerly known as Darkcoin and XCoin) is an open source peer-to-peer cryptocurrency that aims to be the most user-friendly and most on-chain-scalable cryptocurrency in the world. On top of Bitcoin’s feature set, it currently offers instant transactions (InstantSend), private transactions (PrivateSend) and operates a self-governing and self-funding model that enables the Dash network to pay individuals and businesses to perform work that adds value to the network. Dash’s decentralized governance and budgeting system makes it a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO).
