Yes we'll minimum 0.5 eth to send up 100 eth and they instantly double your wth in 8mins lol. Ok so I was never going to send anything to them but I was bored so I went to the channel and asked, first how much longer is the double eth going. Then I asked of there was an address I could use to see all the transactions happening on etherscan. I was instantly banned. The channel only has 2400 in it and I'd imagine that's because everyone who sends eth gets banned lol. Then they post some fake happy customers every hour or so to make it look legit.

B grade scammers

Good catch, but I would like to point out that "gemini.com" isn't part of this scam. Gemini is an exchange. The scammers are just using Gemini's name to promote their trust-trading scams (Note that the scam URL they are promoting leads to geminieth.com instead of gemini.com). This is just like how all the scammers were (and still are) using Binance's and other exchanges' names to create fake giveaway scams and promote them.

I have found another two suspicious links which may be fake of binance and binance labs.

Original links of Binance labs: https://labs.binance.com/

Suspicious link:
Code:
https://www. binancelabs. co/

Screenshot of homepage


Suspicious link
Code:
https:// binancelite. com/



We should avoid these sites and it is better bookmarked all essential site links.





Iirc binancelite is Binance Australia. Check out @binanceliteau on Twitter (Followed by the official Binance and CZ Twitter accounts), and on their Twitter profile, Binance Lite is listed as their official website.

Shitty threads. just because of that, you mark our project are scam

Shitty project. So other than your plagiarized whitepaper, you also have:
1. Frequent spelling and grammar errors on your website
2. A "CEO" and "Lead Blockchain" named "Crypto Style" with a Bitcoin picture as his PFP (profile pic).
3. Some random cartoon picture as the PFP of your CTO and Senior Developer "Alex Dev".
4. A domain which is only registered for one exact year.
5. Your Telegram link doesn't even work

Seems like their smart contract address "0x78863E62856D8C2047061F447C7E55c5838b7064" has some ties with a wallet address labelled as Fake_Phishing2820 on Etherscan too.

Here are the TX hashes:
0xc4c43e00d6a9a4dd921cb72a56cc6216023d619462e0527d2022b290aa12f7c6
0xc786ff692a4ed9071e5e7e435f0d2358e77d0a1a050e7fa89292ccf2a808764b
0xd209c33fd763266223d14c71f0dfa8bcf11ce53986991b655091f4d15025232d

I guess it's safe to say that they're an outright scam at this point.
5  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: [Warning] Acashcoin - Fake Team on: October 03, 2019, 04:20:53 AM
Good job. I can't help but think that they're related to another scam project "Acash Corp - https://acashcorp.com/" as they have a similar name, the same website layout, social media and even the same fake team. Odd that they have two different domains.
6  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Payasian.co - Fake team members - Stay away from this project! on: September 27, 2019, 08:44:56 AM
Great job. I also have something to add.

If you are to google their address "1 Raffles Place, #40-02, One Raffles Place, Office Tower 1, Singapore 048616", it leads to another company called "One IBC Singapore - Offshore Company Corporation". What are the odds of two businesses sharing the same office? Pretty much zero. This shows their office address is fake as well.

@EliseWatoson, So you can not differentiate between a  Page and a Profile? so disappointing.

please this is the Facebook Profile of Official SirVic (https://web.facebook.com/victorekpoonline) check his recent posts and the age of that profile,

the other one you posted is the link to his Page not profile, lol (newbie) Its is very clear you are a newbie, lol


Take down this illegal post *https://imgur.com/gallery/Sx8pjlw* or risk being sued in the court of law

This is not a threat, be very careful

Very well, I stand corrected about your team. I admittedly jumped the gun without making a thorough check.

However, I remain suspicious of the concept nonetheless. 5% payouts monthly are too good to be true. Plus you only have the domain registered for one year. That, too, is undoubtedly fishy.
8  Economy / Scam Accusations / Cryptozenx - Fake exchange used by honeypot scammers on: September 24, 2019, 09:07:16 AM
URL of scam exchange: https://cryptozenx.com
Domain Information:
Domain:cryptozenx.com
Registrar:Eranet International Limited
Registered On:2019-09-03
Expires On:2020-09-03
Updated On:2019-09-03
Status:clientTransferProhibited
Name Servers:amy.ns.cloudflare.com
ivan.ns.cloudflare.com

I was minding my own business on Telegram when some random guy messaged me. It's the same old story - he claims that his bitcoin was stuck on some unknown exchange due to his citizenship and asked me to help withdraw it for him in exchange for a 15% cut. He then provided the URL of this exchange. https://imgur.com/gallery/ljNi9lX

Based on the story alone, it's the usual honeypot scam. 100% of the time the 'exchange' will ask you to pay a certain fee to be able to withdraw coins. This is all fake - there is no actual bitcoin on that exchange. Besides, no exchange would have their domain be registered for only one exact year anyway. I simply wish to make more people aware of this sort of scam. Do not fall for it.

Realy I don't get it!! Why don't people just write another and ask if there could be a Fault!! This is destroying my reputation and that because of a fault of mine forgetting to change the images and names from the template. I worked my ass off for this and people don't think and ask they write and destroy sad World!! Reading this is absolutely not nice. And when you see who is involved you  will think different... I am a volunteer Firefighter and first responder and also involved is a German police officer and I don't think he will find this very funny!!

Care to explain why your domain is only registered for one year as well? And no innocent professional would type like you - butchering the English language while sounding like a desperate madman in denial.
10  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: MorCrypto Exchange (ICO) with ponzi scheme. on: September 23, 2019, 04:20:29 AM
Please do a proper research before posting anything here, We are a Legit Team and we are not hiding like other project owners, the issue on Metamax was wrong,
we were wrongly flagged at Metamax and we have contacted Matamax earlier before now, Metamax also acknowledged that it was an error, see for your selfs here ( https://github.com/MetaMask/eth-phishing-detect/issues/3314 ),

The Github representative for Metamax has already added our Url for white listing (see for you selfs here ( https://github.com/MetaMask/eth-phishing-detect/issues?q=is%3Aissue+is%3Aopen+label%3A%22whitelist+request%22 )

 so we are not scam, we understand that a lot of you were scammed before by other companies but we are not one of them, please make proper research before you comment here!

if you want to use our website for now, just turn off your Metamax extension before lunching our website.

We are MorCrypto and we are legit.

If you wish to speak to the CEO's please request and we will talk to you in video call or voice call as you wish, just to show we are Legit

How would you explain having a fake picture for half of your team on the website then?
11  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: [Be carefull] DAGX.LIVE using Fake Reviews on: September 20, 2019, 07:58:30 AM
I think https://bashi.projectgenome.club/ is just an affiliate of https://dagx.live/ we have to verify it first, that's true that we should not employ fake profile or reviews, OP who is a legendary should address this issue if he is the real owner of the bashi website .
Hello guys,
Thank you for the quick answer! I want to assure you we took care immediately of that case. The landing page where the images of these people are, was made by developers outside the team of Dagx.LIVE. and we informed them immediately to correct the mistake.
Per my check these images are part of the dummy content in the Wordpress theme used for developing the website. You can find the template here: https://www.leadengine-wp.com/marketing/ It contains exactly the same photos which were not removed from the default theme.
These default images from the theme are now deleted.
Thank you very much for your review and hopefully after it is resolved you will consider our immediate intervention.
Happy trading!

Fyi the names are still the same as the Wordpress theme. They're still "Tom Davis" and "Claire Silva".
12  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: MorCrypto Exchange (ICO) with ponzi scheme. on: September 19, 2019, 04:28:14 AM
Ponzi scheme or not, they are definitely super fishy.

Two of their team members (which, strangely, all of them lacked names) are proven to be fake (the co-founder and project advisor). Their pictures are simply taken online.

And according to a WhoIs check, the domain is only registered for one exact year - this is super common amongst Ponzi schemes, scam websites, HYIPs, etc.

Throw in a minimum 5% monthly ROI and that's just way too many red flags for this project to be legit.

13  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: Virtual Token (VITO) - Fake Team on: September 17, 2019, 09:28:11 AM
They've taken down the top right and bottom left pictures from their website - but the damage is already done. Great job OP.
14  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: New exchange BTCNext is using KYC as an excuse to STEAL users funds on: August 30, 2019, 07:11:37 AM
I don't know about you guys, but I always find it weird whenever a project or exchanges registers its domain for only one year - I'd be more inclined than not to think that it's shady. And btcnext's domain is only registered for one year too.
15  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: AlphaTech (AFX): PLAGIARIZED WHITEPAPER on: July 30, 2019, 08:30:29 AM
It seems that they have removed their whitepaper.

Anyway, I know they're not native English speakers, but whoever wrote for the website was definitely awful at it. Shows a lack of professionalism, doesn't it?
16  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: SCAM SITE https://best-xtrades.com/ best-xtrades.com on: July 16, 2019, 09:16:07 AM
It's used by honeypot scammers on Telegram who would claim they have 'BTC stuck on the exchange', and offer to transfer it to you if you create an account there. Of course, the BTC is not real and the scam exchange would ask you for a deposit fee of '0.05 BTC' or something as a means of 'verification' since you're a new member. It uses exactly the same layout as many of those fake exchanges out there - just a different domain.
17  Economy / Scam Accusations / Re: SCAM SITE https://bitmate24.com/ bitmate24.com on: July 12, 2019, 09:18:52 AM
Yes, unfortunately, that is a very common honeypot scam. Thanks for giving everyone a heads-up.
