READ: The whitepaper of Trexcoin is HEAVILY PLAGIARIZED and copied from different sources and whitepapers. Editing and replacing it with their name TREXCOIN on certain pictures and images were done to make it appear that they originally created such idea. Basically, trex coin copied its contents from Swiftcash, Apisplatform, NXT and wanchain's WPs.

What happened: STOLEN CONTENT




READ: After giving OP a reasonable amount of time to answer against my accusation on their ANN, he ignored and completely abandoned the project. Contents of his ANN were copied from Comet Finance's Whitepaper.


Copied content:








As was pointed out by @holydarkness, the devs of Comet Finance were responsive but please exercise extreme caution before investing!

Hi upon checking the contents of your ANN
[...]

Ahh, since you're here already, I'll leave this one out. I'm currently investigating the other project you mentioned, that comet thingy, their dev was really to respond, but I am rather sure it will also be a scam.

5  Economy / Scam Accusations / [WARNING] Yearn.Finance Red - Stolen Content on: October 13, 2020, 03:53:06 PM
What happened: STOLEN CONTENT




READ: After giving some time to explain about my accusation against the project and after carefully monitoring his activity, he ignored my message and he deleted his past replies in his post history (around March 2019 was his last post). Interestingly, the project was an exact replica of Yearn Finance Connect which was created first. I'll be posting a picture of a comparison of their domain. There is also the potential of the other project (Yearn Finance Connect) also being a scam but for now, please stay away from Yearn Finance Red!

As @holydarkness also pointed out, he mentioned that "the current account was recently awaken from a long period of activity."



I'll ride along. Add the fact that their account were recently awaken from a long gap, and how it used to be a regular hunter account, it is very likely that account is hacked or sold.


9  Economy / Scam Accusations / [WARNING] YFBEAM.FINANCE - Stolen Content on: October 06, 2020, 10:21:00 AM
What happened: STOLEN CONTENT


FLAG:

READ: After giving some time to explain about my allegation that their content was very similar to YFMOONBEAM's website, he did not respond. Additionally, @amorejaz pointed out in their ANN about its copy-pasting of content. You guys be the judge but I think this is a lazy scam attempt of the "Y-defi" projects.
Just to add, OP also promoted ycrab.finance but right now, the website is already down.

*Interestingly, YFBEAM's twitter account was created last January 2015 but it only contained three (3) tweets which started only this October 04, 2020. In YFMOONBEAM's twitter, the account was created only this September 2020 and it contained seventeen (17) tweets which started on September 22, 2020.

Copied content and useful links:















With @amorejaz's permission:


good catch qwertyup!
there's a difference in their ticker. look closely on each site

                                 https://www.yfmoonbeam.com/                                                    vs.                                           https://yfbeam.finance/




but it seems both are just copy cats of this Y-defi project.  I dont understand about this Y-stuff anyway. can we see X-DeFi next?  Roll Eyes
checking their site registrations. yfmoonbeam is about half month early than this yfbeam.finance
so we know who's exactly copying the site here.

16  Local / Pilipinas / [WARNING] Ponzi Website na may FALSE Endorsement ni Carlos Dominguez on: September 20, 2020, 08:58:10 AM
Habang nag-brobrowse ako sa internet, may lumabas na ad banner and dinirect ako dito sa website na ito na sinasabing in-eendorse daw ni Financial Secretary Carlos Dominguez at ni Vic Sotto ang BITCOIN CODE.
Para mas maintindihan, ang BITCOIN CODE ay isang website na nirerequire kayong mag-withdraw ng minimum na $300 or P15,000php at yung website na mismong mag-aauto trade sa pera mo. Sinasabi ng website na EASY MONEY daw ito at palalakihan daw nito ang pera mo sa loob ng maikling panahon.

Archive ng website: https://archive.fo/9fpUH






BABALA:
Ang BITCOIN CODE ay miisleading at ito ay punong-puno ng fake advertisers. Isa rin itong PONZI SCHEME na malaking potential na mawalan po kayo ng pera. Nag release na din mismo ang Rappler at ang Philippine Inquirer na false endorsement ang project na ito at mismong si Financial Secretary Carlos Dominguez III ang nag sabi na scam ito. Mag-ingat po tayo sa mga ganitong website at parati po nating i-double check ang mga sources para maiwasan po natin ma-scam at magkaroon ng problema.
