The "CEO" is arrogant and likes to call people names, he refuses to provide links to the team members profile,  a video or new images to validate the team. Typical scammer attitude.
We found a few " team member's" profile, but there is nothing about the project. One team member has a different last name and she just posts about food on her social media accounts.

If they are able to provide video we will remove this accusation.

TEAM: = CARTOONS/DRAWINGS




The CEO uploaded images (stolen?)

~... The order in the album is Laura, Andrew, Chris, Linda. https://imgur.com/a/MHCqWnV

He said he was going to provide new images, but is taking him almost 1 month.

Photoshoot lined up for this week Smiley






The excuse about the lighting is a typical excuse that we hear very often from scammers.  

And yeah, the image was taken from a broken iPhone in poor lighting. As I said. The professional pictures are being processed...




This other team member below just posts about food on her twitter account and she has a different last name on their website. (family connection? stolen images?)
 
~...That Twitter account appears to be compromised. Linda does not use Twitter. Thanks for the heads up. Will handle that with her...

But he didnt answer about her Instagram account.








And this other "team member" has nothing on his profile about this project.

I actually posted on their thread about replacing their current team with real identities and pictures but unfortunately they ignored it.

  • They used pseudonyms and codenames in representing their team; and
  • No actual links to the profile of their team

Here's their RoadMap:



According to https://ecptoken.com.cutestat.com/, their site was created on 2019-02-04T09:30:20Z.

These fuckers don't even know what year it is.


And they have a plagiarized whitepaper. Here are just a few examples:
