1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / SCAMCOIN - new project with all the BEST FEATURES of other SCAM coins on: June 06, 2019, 05:51:40 PM
This is a pre-announcement for SCAMCOIN, but here are the details as they stand right now...

1. SCAMCOIN (SCM) will rely upon dead and dying announcement threads in order to propagate interest among the crypto community
2. SCAMCOIN will use the names of already-existing projects in order to bring in unsuspecting users.
3. SCAMCOIN will link to everything pretty much legitimately, including websites, pools, exchanges and block explorers, BUT...
4. SCAMCOIN will deceitfully change the correct wallet and miner links in order to send the user to various forms of malware.
5. SCAMCOIN will almost always be posted by BCT users who are brand new.
6. SCAMCOIN will also have a couple of generic posts UNDER the OP with generic praise... 'Very good project and will follow closely. Thank you'.  Yeah... like an old ANN thread from a coin given up on 10 months ago is a good thing...

These are all the details for now.  I am busy coding the malware at this time.  Once I am done, look for about a dozen posts to obscure and dead coins with my links to keyloggers, remote access agents or whatever else I can slip past you.
2  Economy / Scam Accusations / BEWARE of links that are NOT what they APPEAR to be on: June 05, 2019, 11:43:40 PM
I just found about  half dozen new ANN threads for projects that are NOT new, but which are being posted to try to deceive you into downloading and running something OTHER than the wallet that is being offered.

Watch your links VERY closely.  In fact, I would go so far as to say do NOT download ANYTHING from these ANN threads at all.  Find the legitimate website for the project or the legitimate Discord channel and get your downloads from more trustworthy sources.

Three of the scam posts that I just saw led to a download for a wallet for Fydcoin - whatever that is.

Why would a Ravencoin thread link to a fydcoin wallet? 

I would stay away from this shit big time.

Please take EXTREME caution when diving into new crypto ANN threads.

There is one poster who is posting what APPEAR to be NEW projects, but what he is doing is taking legitimate EXISTING projects and using his own new thread to entice people to download his malicious code that could cost you dearly.

The poster goes by HardZix.

He has new thread after new thread that LOOK like the real deal - except for one detail...

The link to the wallets or miners are changed to his own malicious code. How do I know this?

On October 15 I downloaded and tried to run a wallet for Nektarcoin in one of his threads.  The wallet did not run... at least not as a wallet.  I figured it was just broken.  Then people started to report it as a virus.  We all know that crypto miners are always setting off false alerts so I did not think that much about it.  

On October 16, I opened my RVN wallet and to my utter dismay, all of my Ravencoin was GONE.  250,000 coins.  Gone.  The transfers were made on the morning of 10/16 and the only way that could have happened would have been through remote access to my computer.  Scary stuff.  This person also tried to change online accounts to his own - but all that did was allow me to know one of his email addresses... 

I then read 2 more reports about people who had downloaded from his posts and they said they experienced loss of coins as well in the same manner.

I have reported this guy to the moderators and NOTHING has been done to stop him.  I have warned people in his bogus threads and... my warnings have been deleted.
