61  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: [FRAUD] LEOcoin scam making demonstrably fraudulent claims to con general public on: November 04, 2018, 03:23:15 PM
My post on the self modded Leo thread giving details of the court case's progress was, of course, deleted.
My usual response to this is to add another negative trust rating to him with a link to the relevant evidence post in this thread and hope that it might at least serve to warn some users. But as trust is not displayed on non-member forum views it's important that this thread and other LEOcoin articles on sites like behindmlm.com appear fairly high up in search-engine rankings.  Roel N. de Leeuw who controls the LEOcoin Foundation forum account is just as guilty in this conspiracy to defraud as the criminals at the top who are being pursued by various government agencies around the globe. His wholly dishonest approach to removing posted evidence of wrongdoing and misrepresentation by the scammers he supports, in some desperate hold-out over the last few years for some kind of epic Moon to occur so he can cash out his bags for Lambos, is despicable.
@all

It is so hearth-warming to see how you are so concerned with regard to Mr. Andersson's health.

I am in regular contact with our chairman and he is doing fine and continues to be involved with LEOcoin.

How interesting and spicy the lives of some of us might be, I suggest, that we concentrate on LEOcoin the currency and the ongoing development to join the Ethereum network.


This operation targets naive and desperate gullible people from impoverished societies and drains them of their cash in return for dreams of riches, all the while this scheme lurches from one bolt-hole, physically and virtually, to the next as it desperately attempts to postpone the inevitable outcome of all pyramid-style schemes.

This project has already been exposed as having team members who are known to be criminals and even their lame attempt to drop the guy who is wanted by the FBI and the SEC after being charged with serious fraud, lowbander80, is proving to be a bullshit gesture as his account is still awarding shitposter shill accounts with merit (see above)!

Sure will look after this thread and use these tactics while getting engaged in any projects. Really thanks so much.

-Wipro

You better had. Campaign managers and promoters can't simply hide behind claims that they are 'only' posting on behalf of third-party ICO project teams.

You are complicit in these scams if you fail to perform sufficient due diligence before accepting the promotional work for them and will be tagged accordingly if you persist.

You're kidding me, right?More than year passed

I replied to your previous post of 2017 the following day so I don't know why are you claiming it took more than a year.

Let me remind you, just in case if you came from the stone age and really serious:

It's internet, baby.
I have absolutely no idea what you are even trying to say with this statement.


You don't have to know a person anyhow to describe him or her as a friend, fag or frenemy. A short chat conversation is enough, no surprise that I was chatting with him due to being a moderator, like dozens of other people on this forum.

You, yourself, cited the owner of BTC-E as being a friend and clearly he would have been a close enough friend to you that you referenced the fact that not even he 'forced' you to destroy the Novacoins. You have admitted that you worked as a technical consultant for BTC-E, you were a moderator there and your mining pool was an official partner of BTC-E, which also was the primary trading market for your Novacoin cryptocurrency. This is more than a mere "short chat" relationship.

But now you want to try and accuse me of being in the wrong for stating that you have had a direct relationship to BTC-E and its owner, even though the article I posted has you, in your own words, detailing a relationship with the owner of BTC-E as being your friend?

That would make for an interesting legal argument:
"Yes I asserted that the owner of BTC-E was my friend but nobody should have inferred that I meant he was my friend"



So, your claim was false. How unexpected.

Which claim are you saying is false? Please elaborate.

75  Economy / Scam Accusations / MeFy ICO has fake team members and is being promoted by a fraudster on: July 15, 2018, 03:17:19 PM
What is this MeFy you speak of?
MeFy is yet-another-medical-blockchain-to-change-the-world(tm), its ANN thread can be found here.

So what is the problem with it?
Well, apart from the shameless incorporation of literally every ICO magical fairy-dust buzzword you can think of (Blockchain, Smart Contracts, AI, IoT), coupled with shockingly poor proof-reading of their ANN graphics, the OP of the MeFy threads, lowbander80, is a liar and a fraud.

Whoa, hold on there! That's very strong language to be throwing around in public, care to explain?
Absolutely, but part of the evidence will be presented in the 'investigations' forum section as it involves personal information, albeit that of a person who already has been reported on in the press, so it might not even warrant being put in that section. I'll look into the rules in that regards.

What issues have you found with this ICO in general?
First up, the MeFy.io domain was only recently registered in April and they posted up their ICO thread in May:

Highly suspect red flags on this yet-another-medical-blockchain-ICO:

Quote




Plus, as well as the rushed nature of this ICO, the owner of MeFy, Sanjay Sinha, also happens to be involved with a blockchain lottery ICO:

Sanjay seems to like ICOs so much he's got two on the go at the same time:

Quote


Busy guy, but that doesn't prove wrongdoing per se.
No, but the speed at which they have put together the ICO and sought to launch into its token pre-sale, along with the owner being involved in another ICO is a red flag from the outset. The major issue is the fact that at least one member of their team has been proven to not be who he claims to be and that all the evidence points to him being somebody who has already been charged with fraud by US authorities.

How connected to this ICO is this person?
Asides from the fact they are the OP for the MeFy ICO and bounty threads, he is listed on their website as being their 'Blockchain Advisor'
www.mefy.io

I am Mark Haynes I run a full software company with other C++ devs that have blockchain experience and code in Solidity...I am an MIT grad and also have a degree from Johns Hopkins all in Maths

Ok so forum user lowbander80 voluntarily cited his RL identity for the purpose of asserting his place on this project's team. This means his information doesn't have to be limited to the investigation forum, sure, but where's this evidence of lies and fraud you spoke of?

Well, the thing is, lowbander80 is not Mark Haynes. I have no idea whether a Mark Haynes even exists, but he sure as shit is not lowbander80. No, lowbander80 is somebody else entirely. But before we get to that, let's establish how we know that lowbander80 is lying about being Mark Haynes. Again, because we are posting evidence to show who a user is not, as opposed to who they are, this information can remain, and should remain, in the 'scam accusations' forum.

At the outset it was suspected that lowbander80 was not the original owner of the account. That the account was either bought or stolen and was dishonestly being used to misrepresent itself as a long-standing forum member in order to add legitimacy to the ICO being promoted, a common tactic amongst scammers:

Do you have an explanation for the discrepancies regarding your posting in Greek when the account was made vs. not doing so now.

Do you have an explanation for your statement about not being Greek vs. the one where you said you live in Greece?

I'm inclined to think you bought this account, but before leaving a neg on you I'd like to hear what you have to say.
I did live in Greece but I am not Greek I read and write 5 languages fluently and another two verbally.

Even the fact that the forum had flagged the lowbander80 account as having recently changed its password and email was explained away in order to insist it was not an account being run by a new owner:

My email and password changes about every couple of months that is called a security protocol.

In fact, there are some elements to this which serve to suggest the lowbander80 account is, indeed, operated by its original owner. Up until recently his profile contained references to both a website and a skype account it was the owner of:

Quote


Why was the skype handle 'bitsintheclouds' and the globalcryptotimes website in the profile 'up until recently'?

He removed those two elements from his profile when questions about sites they are linked to began being posted:

he did ask me if I would answer any questions regarding the app support via his skype but never heard from anyone again. So really don't know much about it now.

His skype? So why is your skype the contact for the platform?

Quote


Also, the whois data doesn't equate to your claim towards having sold this domain 20 months ago:
Quote
Domain Name: BTCEXCHANGE.PW
Registry Domain ID: D47201360-CNIC
Registrar WHOIS Server: whois.namecheap.com
Registrar URL:
Updated Date: 2018-05-30T09:33:54.0Z
Creation Date: 2017-04-24T19:42:03.0Z

Except, while he weakly claims to not be the owner of the bitsintheclouds skype handle now, he was only recently advertising his signature space for rent and asking people to contact him on that skype handle:

I'm auctioning off my signature. I will make on average around 50 posts per month for winner...WILLING TO DISCUSS THINGS ON SKYPE    bitsintheclouds

Starting bid 0.01

Hang on, so you're saying he has recently tried to claim that the bitsintheclouds skype address isn't his and he's now removed it from his profile? But then that would only serve to show he is lying about the status of the lowbander80 account, yes, so why would he suddenly try and throw himself under the bus on that point?

Because the bitsinthclouds reference leads into a rabbit hole which reveals so very much more than issues concerning a simple sketchy ICO.

Also, as well as the skype handle, the mention of the globalcryptotimes website connects to a twitter account which, even now, is promoting the MeFy ICO:
Quote


Yes, yes, all well and good, but where's the evidence that lowbander80 is not, as he claims to be, this Mark Haynes?

While I'll save all the personal info for posting in the 'investigations' forum, I can show you that lowbander80 is also forum user coinmaster222 who, asides from their online history adding to the haul of evidence against the RL person behind both accounts, is also exposed as having ripped somebody off on a BTCJam loan.

Here lowbander80 is having trouble getting a youtube channel he bought transferred over to him so ends up posting a couple of email addresses of his in this thread:

lets try another please send invitation to ziftrsales@gmail.com think it wants me to sign in with my adsense account

Trouble is, he seems to have forgotten that he posted this email address a couple of years previously, as coinmaster222
Do you want to Advertise your coin or service on the highest paying doge faucet on the internet.Only open 2 days and had 270 users (some multiple times) first day.Once I move it on to my own server after the holidays at the latest I will also have another currency on same page offering high returns,get in before the spaces are filled.Approx $1 a day (0.0022)BTC or $25 dollars a month and your rate will be held as long as you are advertising but for non clients will be higher when the highest paying other currency on the net(not decided what it will be yet) joins the page..PM me or email ziftrsales@gmail.com .Not interested in using adsense its useless

Coinmaster222, by his own post, is an Alan, not a Mark:

I had my account hacked on 20 sept,actually had my computer hacked and lost a lot out of Cex.io whos 2FA did not work at login.when someone actually got me myself I told them I know nothing about it and took the advert down straight away.As for my account for sale I am more apt to dump it than sell it this forum has lost all its charm and credibility.The hacker is days away from being caught as Interpol are now involved as he tried to steal thousands from my account at Banx.io till Simon Dodds got the account frozen.
I now live in a hospice and sometimes glad I am away from people who just assume anything on here,as for you writing bad trust I can see the point of the guy who thought he was being ripped off but WTF is VOD sticking his friggin nose into it for.
Write as much red trust as you like I dont really give a shit I have more pressing matters in my life than worrying about that
Apart from the guy who was selling a knife,in nearly 3 years you will find no one that says I tried to rip them off,I am more likely to give you something for nothing as steal from you

Ok, so lowbander80 is connected to the sparkpool @starfaucet twitter account which is currently promoting MeFy and you've proved that lowbander80 is also coinmaster222 who has skipped on BTCJam loans and is accused of trying to scam somebody for a couple of hundred bucks on this forum, what is all this about him not being Mark Haynes and, if he is not Mark Haynes, who is he?

Well the information I have posted here already can be clicked through to see that the RL name associated with the lowbander80 and coinmaster222 forum accounts is somebody else entirely, but I'm not sure if I can actually post it here in a machine-searchable sub-forum, albeit the fact there may be an exception in cases where somebody is already discussed in the media. But for now I'll leave it as it is and direct you to the 'investigations' forum thread on the subject of who lowbander80 is.

The 'investigations' thread about who lowbander80 a.k.a. Mark Haynes actually is can be found here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4679939

Do not get mislead by people spreading false allegations, do your own due diligence. We have yet not announced our presales dates but our whitelisting is on, please register yourself to book your MeFy Token.

So are you lying or just wrong when you say you haven't announced your presale date?


Presale commences [Starting 4th June] Min/Max Contribution: 20-300 ETH Min/Max Contribution: 2-50 BTC
Min/Max Contribution: 30,000-500,000 XMV

As for 'false allegations', how about you explain why lowbander80 claims to be somebody called 'Mark Haynes' an MIT and Johns Hopkins graduate expert on blockchain development when, in fact, he is nobody of the sort and is just a scammer with a completely different name and an online history detailing his fraud? I thought you claimed to have done proper due diligence?

Would you care for me to post some proof in this thread to better explain the lie you are trying to sell people?

Its easy to point fingers sitting behind fake name and id. I have already answered all questions. I need to spend time enhancing the product that would help everyone rather than answering irrelevant questions.

Irrelevant questions? So you think the fact you have fake team members, who are in reality people who have committed multiple scams and fraud, is irrelevant to your intention to collect millions of dollars from the public?

LOL. You've got some front, I'll give you that.

In conclusion - This ICO is a scam.

in-fact whitelisting started on 8th June.

No, whitelisting started 29th May and Presale on the 4th, according to lowbander80.

Presale Requirements

Whitelist [Starting 29th May]

Min/Max Contribution: 30,000-500,000 XMV
Try to get your facts straight, you are seeking many millions of dollars in investment from the public, this is not a good look for your ICO.

But then...
All advisors and team members has been onboarded based on our due diligence and the contribution that they can make to the product and ICO.

Really? So you're claiming to have conducted some due diligence when you on-boarded 'Mark Haynes'?

There is a reason why lowbander80 'Mark' has suddenly gone quiet in this thread. He is not who he claims to be and for you to assert that your team members are vetted prior to inclusion serves only as damning insight into how shoddy your operation is.

I strongly suggest you follow my advice in this regards:
You'd be far better off cancelling this ICO and, if you are a legitimate operation, going about it the right way instead which includes oversight managed by one of the big four audit firms and having the ICO funds held in escrow. Taking the time to provide proper controls and oversight will serve to assuage the concerns surrounding your platform.
