1  Economy / Scam Accusations / ZAMBESI GOLD SCAM (Links to Apollo Fintech Scam) on: March 05, 2022, 09:58:59 AM
ZAMBESI GOLD SCAM


It took me one minute on google to find this. How many times does this Middelvlei Gold mine have to be rehashed into another SCAM.

Zambezi GOLD claims "the Middelvlei gold mine is a 15km NW-SW route located deep underground a series of volcano- sedimentary rocks" bla bla bla


https://zambesigold.co.za/media/General/White%20Paper.pdf


This was already done by https://www.freepaytx.com/mining/middelvlei-mine/



Looks like you copied and downloaded all the 3D images from that website. Freeway also claim to be a 100% gold backed digital currency. Did you just copy them? Either you are a scam or both Freeway and Zambezi Gold are both scams. They are identical mines.

Freeway states "Each ORRO coin represents 0.01 grams of physical gold produced from the FreePay mines. When you purchase an ORRO, you’re purchasing real gold held securely by FreePay on your behalf. The number of coins in circulation on the FreePay payments network represents the amount of gold held in treasury".

Digging further into Zambezi Gold the documents and "proof" on the website have been plagiarized from https://sahris.sahra.org.za/
(search for middelvlei-mine)

Did you, Zambezi Gold steal the info and just became to lazy to change anything?

This is just yet more proof that your team members Willie Boshoff and Wessel Sevenster, the same team members of Apollo Fintech, Karatbars and a fake country made up by Apollo Fintech are just SCAMMERS!

Claims from MGT Solar

MGT Solar (PTY) claims to answer demand for electricity in South Africa by providing an alternate energy supply by building eight 10mwa solar energy plants within the next 60 months (5 years). MGT has claimed in their roadmap that due to partnerships this build time of solar energy plants has been cut from 5 years to 1.5 years for completion.

MGT Solar have suggested they have acquired 100% ownership in Project Beta (PTY) who owns a 60 megawatt plant (worth USD$113 million) and Project Sediba SPV in Parys that boasts having 75 and 120 megawatt PV plants.

The MGT website states Megatech will generate a NET PROFIT of $1.18T over 25 years (3,575%) which equates to an average of 142% return per year.

The website also states that the token offered for sale will be listed on a major exchange with 200 pairings in August 2021.

The custodian wallet is only available on the Apollo Fintech blockchain where staking can take place.

Carbon credits apparently will also be traded on external exchanges and profits generated will return back to MGT Solar to enhance yearly dividends.

Token Distribution according to the whitepaper:

Equity Token offering 3.5 bil
Development 400 mil (11.43%)
Management 400 mil (11.43%)
Marketing 300 mil (8.57%)
Team Development 150 mil (4.28%)
Exchange 150 mil (4.28%)
Airdrop 100 mil (2.86%)

The whitepaper claims 42.85% tokens are kept for the above developments.


STO Fiat Distribution:

Power Plants 80%
MGT Solar 20%


Reported MGT Financials:

Unregistered security/Illegal ICO

To begin with the MGT (token) claims rights to ownership of solar plants. In addition dividends are claimed to be payout to the token holders rendering this as a security. There is no registered company found on any registers within South Africa or worldwide that has been authorised to sell the MGT token. It is therefore an unregistered illegal ICO. Buying this token means there is significant risk for investors with no legal comeback or protection. Without regulation false assurances about the MGT project and claims are unsubstantiated. If an investor buys into a token they can also be breaking their own countries laws, as many countries require KYC to buy a security or require the security to be registered. Often penalties such as monetary fines and in cases jail time can be given to the investor for purchasing unregistered securities. This could been seen as an attempt to lauder and hide money. This is why you should do your research.

For your own research Megatech is registered in CO JAN DE WET AND PLATAN AVENUE, NO 35 FLAMWOOD, KLERKSDORP, NORTH WEST, 2571.
The active officers for Megatech are Willem Sternberg B, Wessel Sevenster, Francois Paul N and Alastair Rory Comfort. (https://b2bhint.com/en/company/za/mgt-solar--K2020251758).

The marketing of any financial products in South Africa is subject to regulation under the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Service Act (FAIS) and also covers financial providers domiciled outside South Africa for investors doing business with South African companies.

Useful link: https://www.fsca.co.za/Regulated%20Entities/Pages/FAIS-Verifications.aspx

You will not be able to find any financial service that is registered to sell the MGT Token. It is an illegal security and an illegal ICO.


Trading Competitions, Absurb Returns and MGT Staking

A major underlying red flag with MGT Solar is them conducting trading competitions and massive staking returns.

Absurd returns are advertised on the MGT Solar website of 3,575% over 25 years. This equates to an average of 143% return per year. As we all know these a ridiculous returns and this temps  the novice investor by invoking FOMO. No real company has ever promoted such returns. This is in fact against the FAIS act as set out by the South African regulators, but because the MGT token is not a registered security MGT Solar breaks these rules and the investor has no financial protection.





To further insult to the investor this scam company is offering trading competitions and are giving away free MGT tokens. This doesn’t make sense a couple of ways. Firstly this dilutes ownership by giving away free tokens. How do you feel about this?  Secondly funding should be going to building solar plants, not encouraging investor to trade as this does not benefit the business. You must be desperate to try and get people to trade a security by offering a competition. Have you seen this in the real world?…. A company offering to give away shares if you trade more of their shares? Hmmm major red flag there.

Other giveaways include $50 of the MGT token Weekly giveaways and the lucky wheel competition upwards of $300 worth of MGT tokens.  

What we also find is that through Bitmart, you can earn up to 30% rewards monthly by staking LOL


https://support.bmx.fund/hc/en-us/articles/4405968811931

This is a HUGE dilution withering down your ownership if you do not stake. Imagine buying 1million MGT tokens and every month you ownership decreases by 30% per month because someone else who bought 1million tokens is staking and you are not. The tokens received for staking diluted your share of ownership.  And this is compounded month after month accelerating your loss of ownership. This is inflation of ownership.

Why does it dilute ownership? It is true with two aspects:

(1) Either the token didn’t exist to begin with until you staked it, therefore ownership cannot be applied to what didn’t exist to start with diluting total ownership after staking.

(2) Or if the token did exist to begin with, and held by MGT Solar, when you stake the MGT token the ownership passes from MGT Solar to you the staker diluting MGT Solars ownership until they own nothing. In this situation no funds are actually transferred (as it would with shares) and MGT Solar do not benefit.  Remember the solar plants are not built yet so there is no income. Therefore, there is no argument that the income is reinvested or distributed in the form of the MGT token to the investor, and thus not diluting ownership with MGT Solar. This point is now moot.

This is a great ruse to create confusion leading to you to believe you are benefiting. It just doesn’t make sense that MGT Solar is happy to lose ownership of a business to only benefit you.  

The other side to this coin which again raises red flags is the idea that you can increase your ownership by 30% per month. Relative to the token this is many hundreds of percent per year increase, not taking in consideration the price. A massive warning sign that something is not right.

MGT Solar have also completed an airdrop. This dilutes more ownership so be careful of this scam.

MGT Solars Strategic 3rd party, Development Partners and Apollo Fintech Connections


It is important to begin with the fact no independent 3rd parties have validated Megatech (MGT) Solar. So far the only information provided is directly from MGT Solar and you can only take them by their word. This would include ZPN Energy Sub-Saharan Africa where MGT Solar have claimed to have partnered with. All articles publishing this partnership have been paid articles and/or written by Megatech Solar. ZPN Energy have not verified this this partnership and caution is advised. Nothing has been independently verified, invest at your own risk.

According to whitepaper MicroEdge and Amber Trading will be the development and strategic development partner of MGT Solar (Pty) Ltd. Further investigation into this companies reveals Willem Sternberg and Wessel Sevenster are the directions of Amber Trading (https://b2bhint.com/en/company/za/amber-trading--K2019023836) and the directors of MicroEdge are Tsung-Hsien Lin, Edward Vincer N and Alastair Rory Comfort (https://b2bhint.com/en/company/za/microedge-consultant--B1999007516).

What is interesting Alastair is not only a director of MicroEdge but also a director for MGT Solar. We also find Wessel as a director for Amber Trading and MGT Solar. This is a perpetual circle that does not provide independence. In addition to this Wessel is linked to the scam Apollo Fintech and a fake country promoting himself as “congressman” of the United Allied States (UAS). It is to be noted that the MGT token is only allocated to the Apollo Network blockchain demonstrating the involvement with Steven McCullah and this scam.

Looking in depth into the team the Advisor for MGT Solar Arno Boshoff and Willie Boshoff are both related strengthening the correlation of MGT Solar to Apollo Fintech and the fake country UAS.  The apple does not fall far from the tree. (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3233704.msg58564147#msg58564147).

The same people running MGT Solar are the same ones involved with the Apollo Fintech scam. You will also find the aforementioned people and the associate business directorships include Knox VIP, Apollo Currency Africa, Apollo Fintech Africa…the list goes on.


Claiming Acquired Companies are MGT Solars when they are NOT

What is very damning to MGT Solar is they have pretended to acquired 100% equity in Project Beta (Pty) Ltd who owns a 60 megawatt project in Hertzogville, Orange Freestate, South Africa for US$113 million and will begin construction this year 1st quarter (2022, Q1) with a budget of 1.8 billion Rand.





https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E_IgLLXnjZc&t=125s

Megatech via YouTube (Megatech MGT Token) also claim a Phase two called Project Sediba SPV and will have two 75 megawatt PV Plants located in Orange Freestate, Parys, South Africa and will begin construction 2022 Q3 with a budget of 5 billion Rand.



https://youtu.be/E_IgLLXnjZc?t=123

To begin with don’t get confused, none of these projects are built yet which bring us to an interesting point. What exactly did Megatech buy for US113 million when buying Project Beta (Pty) Ltd when in fact the plant is not built? They claim Beta Solar has a net value of $113 million. Isn’t that equivalent to 1,706,446,900 Rand, the entire budget gone for a project not built yet? Anyway I have not made my point yet, it is time for some research.

The two power plants in question are Project Beta SV and Project Sediba SPV.

What we find is one man connected to them both, Dick Paul Splinter Berlijn (Berlin). If fact Mr Berlin owns two companies (100%) with the same names.

Beta Solar Plant (RF), located in South Africa (https://b2bhint.com/en/company/za/beta-solar-power-plant-rf--K2013048155)
Sediba Solar Plant (RF), located in South Africa (https://b2bhint.com/en/company/za/sediba-solar-power-plant-rf--K2012040524)

He also owns (100%):

Subsolar Energy
Life Solar
Naledi Solar Energy (RF)
Gamma Solar Plant (RF)

All found in South Africa. https://b2bhint.com/en/officer/32623331

We find that Mr Berlin lives in Stockholm and 100% owns Subsolar AB, with a registered industry of technical consulting activities in electrical engineering (https://upplysningar.syna.se/foretag/5592005374). In fact all Subsolar developments are held through their respective country offices which sit under SubSolar Energy (Holding BV) and is the registered company above. They have a website:

https://subsolar.co.za
Contact details: info@subsolar.co.za

The companies Beta Solar Plant and Sediba Solar Plant are subsidy companies under the parent Subsolar company (b2bhint.com) and have undertaken Project Beta and Project Sediba for solar plants in the Orange Freestate, South Africa. What a coincidence. The very projects and company Megatech have claimed to have owned and developing are owned by a different company and man, the man who STILL owns these companies and has not sold them.  What else can we find?

We can find the Cultural Heritage Impact Assessments for the Proposed Development of Photovoltaic Power Plants in South Africa.

(1) Beta Solar Plant Report: https://sahris.sahra.org.za/sites/default/files/heritagereports/Appendix%20D2%20-%20HIA_0.pdf and https://sahris.sahra.org.za/sites/default/files/additionaldocs/Beta%20-%20Draft%20Scoping%20Report.pdf

(2) Sediba Solar Plant Report: https://sahris.sahra.org.za/sites/default/files/additionaldocs/Sediba%20Final%20Scoping%20Report%20%281%29.pdf

Things have just become more clear. The Beta Solar Report for Cultural Assessment has the recipients email to scheepers@subsolar.co.za, this is the same as subsolar.co.za contact details, Mr Berlins current company. The report for the Sediba is addressed to Sediba Solar Plant (RF), also Mr Berlins company.

We can also see at https://sahris.sahra.org.za/organisations/beta-solar-power-plant-pty-ltd-0 that Beta Solar Power Plant is connected to Subsolar.co.za with a contact email of berlijn@subsolar.co.za

I think we we have a problem Megatech. The projects and companies you have just claimed to own are owned by someone different.

Let’s keep digging.


Beta Solar Plant Project

The Beta Solar Plant Project (owned by Mr Berlin) has a max capacity of 84 megawatts with a connection point of 75 megawatts. Approx 180 hectares is covered with the title deed T8261/1997. The development is to be at The farm Talana 1241, Registration Division Boshof, Freestate. The property owner is Retreat Trust and is leased to Beta Solar Plant for 20 years.

The location coordinates for the plant form a polygon:

-28.16520 (lat) 25.67060 (long), -28.17601 (lat) 25.66864 (long), -28.17496 (lat) 25.69103 (long), -28.17253 (lat) 25.69509 (long).

Let’s now review what Megatech claim their Project Beta covers. They claim to be building a 60 megawatt project in Hertzogville, Free State, South Africa.
On the MGT official Telegram group they have uploaded a video (duration 7min 15 sec) on the 30th Dec 2021 with more details of this project. To be precise they have given the coordinates of the project.



As we can see the pin marks the spot for the solar plant. On the right top hand corner we can see the Legend with 160ha - 84MW Solar Plant. The Farm Talana, 1241, Bishop Rd, Free State, South Africa.

As you can see from the legend the address is exactly the same as the Project Beta that Mr Berlin owns with Subsolar.  You can also compare this to google maps:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/28°09'54.7%22S+25°40'14.2%22E/@-28.1219403,25.5847028,27474m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0xcff0e55727358e3a!8m2!3d-28.1652!4d25.6706!5m2!1e4!1e2
Megatech has claimed this is their project! They have deceived you into taking a legit project and claiming this for themselves. They have even changed a few details such as how many mega watts they would produce in order to portray this differently so they are not caught. This is fraudulent by Megatech duping you into giving them your money.
You can also see the land is only leased for 20 years, not the 25 years that Megatech has advertised and what they based their financial figures around. They didn’t read all the fine print and made an opps moment. The devil for Megatech is in the details, you just got caught lying.

Project Sediba

The Project Sediba SPV run by Mr Berlin is a capacity of 150 megawatts covering 270 hectares of land with a Title Deed T605/1991 located on the extent of the farm Kliprug No. 344, Registration Division Parys, Free State Province. The property owner is Dan-Uys Boerdery CC and is leased to Sediba Solar Power Plant (RF) for 20 years.

We will now review what Megatech has said about their Project Sediba SPV. Megatech claim to be building two 75 megawatt solar plants located Parys, Free State, South Africa.



(https://youtu.be/E_IgLLXnjZc?t=122)




What another coincidence, Megatechs two 75 megawatt (2X75=150MW) solar plants are the same size as Mr Berlins solar company of 150 Megawatts. And even more so they are located in exactly the same farm, Kilprug Farm in Parys, South Africa.
You can also see the land is only leased for 20 years and not the 25 years as reported by Megatech, a detail they had wrong.


Conclusion

As we already know it is no a coincidence that Megatech (MGT) solar plants are located in the same place as the power plants that Dick Paul Splinter Berlijn (Berlin) owns, they are the same solar plants.

MGT have been trying to pass off these legit projects as their own and have tried to change some details to throw off people researching. As shown above, the two projects in question are still owned by Mr Berlin and no ownership has been transferred to MGT.
If you wish to confirm such details you can also purchase the full business reports or contact Mr Berlin via the website https://subsolar.co.za or e-mail info@subsolar.co.za

MGT giveaways, competitions and staking would dilute ownership and does not make sense within a business structure model. In the real world this is not sustainable.
Adding to the many red flags is the unrealistic returns advertised which goes unregulated as no financial body is registered to sell the security. This made the STO/ICO illegal and has place investors in a precarious situation where they may have broken laws in their country and could face penalties.

Any irregularities can be reported to the Mineral Resources & Energy of South Africa @ https://www.dmr.gov.za/report
It is concluded the Megatech has been caught out lying which is of no surprize considering the correlation to Apollo Fintech and Steve McCullah, as the same practices are used.

Megatech is a SCAM.

I warned everyone a few hours after the very first post started about the wallet containing Pony Stealer.  I warned the Dev and nothing was done. Now the Dev looks suspicious as he\she did NOTHING!

Now I am right because it has began......

Unfortunately it has been reported that  A Turkish IP was detected logging into users computer and stole all their wallets\funds.
It has also been reported that airdrop bounties have not been given and users are kicked off Discord - all before the reported theft.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5149146.msg51303165#msg51303165

Pony Stealer has been found in the windows wallet. This is used for data theft, ransomware. Online checkers say this is clean but it IS NOT!

https://www.acunetix.com/blog/articles/pony-malware-credential-theft/

All your crypto-wallets will be taken and your passwords.


If downloaded -You have been comprised!!! Change all passwords!

To recap I posted this virus finding a few hours after the first post, the dev ignored me adding to suspicion. Following this users have been kicked out of discord for asking about where their bounties are and an user has had their crypto-wallets stolen. Also the Discord link is now broken.

Unfortunately this is looking very much like a SCAM!

They had lots of websites selling this crap with small name alterations.

Just google yourself.

Just on a side note all of these owners all have scores and scores of businesses that are currently running and are liquidated. RED FLAG ANYONE!!!??? Im not going through 283 business just registered under ONE name!!!!

I’m now only going to link a business or two to show how these scammers have operated together before.

Merle Paju has worked with the following businesses that Kadri Matlik (OrbisSolutions Owner):

Blockchain Garage: https://www.teatmik.ee/en/personlegal/14384145-BlockChain-Garage-OÜ

Merle Paju
Kristine Akopzanjan <———Guess who again
Kadri Matlik <-------OrbisSolutions Owner

Wow what a coincidence!!!!!

Blockchain Solutions: https://www.teatmik.ee/en/personlegal/14330758-BlockChain-Solutions-OÜ

Kadri Matlik
Merle Paju
Bjorn Patrik Isaksson

I could keep going but like I say there are SO MANY to check, I mean Merle has 283 all by himself.

One pattern I have noticed after all this checking….they LOVE ICO’s and it’s ALWAYS the same format, the same format as Orbis Solutions.

With Known scammers associated with this project do you want to invest?

With owners of OrbisSolutions having previously owned and still running hundreds and hundreds of businesses within a two year period - is this a RED FLAG?

If I was research all of the businesses they are all associated with I can bet most of them are scams that have ended. I'm warning everyone now, the patterns are the same and the people are the same.

You can make your own decisions but I do hope I have kick-start everyone on doing their own research before investing! Too many red flags here.  Angry

Another SCAM? You decide.

I have seen your Exchange before, you have the same errors in your code as ListEX Exchange, which turned out to be a scam. Raisex.io is also the basic platform as ListEx. They also use hot wallets to insecurely store crypto.

Fake Volume on Raisex.io

Some people have asked how an Exchange with such a huge volume with millions of dollars (USD) over 24 hrs be a scam?

I will keep this short, math does not lie. There are several markets with fake volumes, check it out! <--------------- Check out other markets for yourself

Let's pick one market - BTC:ETH (Please check out other markets for fake volumes)

As to date (October 23, 2018, 07:15:43 AM) Raisex.io claims to have a 24 hr volume of 16677.40348568 ETH. *cough cough*

Raisex order books for ETH show in the SAME 24 hrs, a volume of:

Buys: 539.112 ETH (fake)
Sells: 300.657 ETH (fake)

If we add these two figures, a total of: 839.679 ETH

This is still not close to the reported volume of 16677.40348568 ETH *cough cough*

Let's now have a independent third party to verify my math by using the candle-stick charts provided by tradingview.com that Raisex.io uses. Looking at the ETH candlestick chart on Raisex we see a volume of....OH NO, SCAM VERIFIED! It's worse than than a scam, it's a scammer who cannot add. The charts on his website verify the extremely LOW volume for ETH. I mean extremely LOW! Don't take my word for it, check out the candlesticks charts on his Exchange, look at the volume.

What do you think guys?

I-Mob Ltd

Registered under ROSCIGLIONE, Sergio and active In Italy (Rome) and the UK (London).

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10557850/officers

Multiple company address changes (monthly), although this proves nothing.

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10557850/filing-history
You can check Malta business register yourself but the above link shows what countries the business is registered.


This may indeed be completely unrelated. Is there a coincidence or a link between this company I-Mob Ltd and scam names?

Sergio Rosciglione: Director of Tourist Mobile Ltd - Link (Click on https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/10557850/filing-history then navigate to the last pdf-file dated 11 Jan 2017 - Incorporation) and this is under the company I-Mob Pay Ltd. What!?? Wow! A known Tourist coin (name) scam and I-Mob Pay Ltd connection…maybe a coincidence.

Is this an incredible coincidence having a Tourist Coin Scam, then having a business name (Tourist Mobile Ltd) linked to I-Mob Pay Ltd? <—-Under one director: Sergio Rosciglione

Have a look for yourself:
https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09016113/filing-history

I-Mob is clearly advertised on the raisex.io exchange website, another connection . They did this connection themselves. Here it is:

This is on raisex.io platform "RAISEX is a brand of I-Mob Limited DRAGONARA BUSINESS CENTRE, 5TH FLOOR, DRAGONARA ROAD C/W BALL STREET, PACEVILLE, Malta Company Register C 81284 and registered in MFSA Malta like a financial company with license"

Lets see if there is a different connection.

Is there a link between Salvatore Castagna and Sergio Rosciglione?

Imagine for a moment if the names of those registered businesses could be connected to the names of the directors. Maybe Salvatore Castagna and Sergio Rosciglione could be linked showing that they know each other by using their names only.

Wait there is! OH NO!

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09016113/filing-history

Holaphone Limited - checkout the PDF-file dated 29 Apr 2014 - It is Salvatore Castagna is the director with Sergio Rosciglione as another director!!!

They changed the business name to Gisosa Limited, see pdf-file on this date (8th Sep 2014). https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09016113/filing-history. Another different director has also been named.

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09016113
https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/09016113/officers <——Names all linked)

What a coincidence! Just by searching the business name I-Mob Ltd it has links to the exact names of previously known scams of Tourist coin and raisex.io (not to mention Listex.io where Salvatore wife Marianna Luisi registered this business).

Then by reviewing I-Mob Ltd connection, the directors names -Sergio Rosciglione has had previous business connections with Salvatore Castagna proving they know each other. Wow, incredible or is it?

Registered business names matching the names of know scam names then the business directors Salvatore and Sergio having previous business relationship….I will let you guys make a decision for yourself.

Likedin profile saying he is the founder of Tourist coin, Listex.io or Raisex.io.  Salvatore Castagna links:

Summary

For those people who say "but I haven't had a problem withdrawing my crypto yet", just wait, it's coming just like Listex Exchange - people could withdraw their coins, then they couldn't.

Just because you can withdraw your crypto now doesn't mean tomorrow you can.

Please do not trade at this Exchange. This is a honey pot scam enticing people to list coins free on his Exchange, and when enough coins are collected he will run away with your hard earned crypto.

I encourage any dev's who have coins listed with them to approach them on Telegram/Discord/Twitter about these accusations. Their answer will be simple..."we will look into it" without offering you any proof of who is REALLY behind the team...or you will be blocked. Please keep asking for proof that these accusations are false- you will get no proof. They cannot hide their FAKE volumes because you guys can do the math!

The longer the scam continues the more crypto they will run away with. If some of you don't already know, listing your coin with them will require a deposit of coins so once they are gone your community has been robbed. If you are a dev/community without sufficient funds to list on a real exchange then this theft may kill your coin once the scam is complete.

They have not scammed me, I have lost nothing. Who cares if you lose 0.1 BTC worth of crypto or 0.01 or 0.001, I CARE! You earned real money to buy crypto. Some countries 0.1 BTC worth of crypto is a month salary or more.

Don't do nothing, repost this, tweet, use Discord and Telegram and get the message out so no other coins list with them. The only thing free is your crypto that you are giving them.
