I have a question, that maybe you could answer. I come from the world of penny stocks where the norm was the pump and dump. In Crypto , aside from the promoters owning stock, how else do they make money? Are they charging for the pumps,?  Are group members paying for the info?


Are the companies paying for the promotions?


Thank you in advance?

Alright, so I've been PM'd by a few people what red-flags to look out for since I have a pretty good track record of spotting scammers. Sometimes I get it wrong, but better safe than sorry.  Here's a couple rules to follow to avoid becoming a victim:

1. Newbies, NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH OTHER NEWBIES, EVER. There are plenty of veteran members to do business with and ALWAYS use escrow. If you're a newbie and you're doing business with another newbie, there's nearly a 100% chance that one of the parties is a scammer. I can not stress this enough.. just work with people who have been here at least a year.
2. Always use escrow.
3. See rule #2.
Even if a hero member can also be a scammer, don't trust anyone unless you know them already, and they are already familiar with you, but there are instance that an account can be hack by hackers and use it to scam people. That is also dangerous. Let's all be careful for what we are doing first and think twice before doing a business with one another.

In most cases, it turns out that it's better not to deal with friends or novices with business. At first everything goes well but then the quarrels begin and the relations are clarified and the money is to blame for all this. With friends you need to be friends and work and business with friends is not compatible.

Very important thing imo. Scammers are increasing insanely with time.

Never trust provided TXIDs on new altcoins without block explorer. Better just wait to see the coins in your wallet and fully confirmed. Some people try to send manufactured TXIDs/screenshots to "proof" they made a payment.

Thanks for the tip. I will definitely remember this one by the time I have become a veteran on bitcoin.

We are newbie, but we disagree with this. We often have questions such as :
How can you be trustworthy enough as a new platform for all potential ICO participants, who may be afraid to send their money to a 3rd party and not directly to the ICOs they would be interested in? There were so many scams recently with fraudsters hijacking the ICO participation addresses, so people may simply believe this is one of them.
1. TokenDesk founders are well known entrepreneurs, marketing specialists and developers. There are no reasons why you couldn’t make your own background check on every each of them as all information is public. Also, we encourage you to contact them personally if you feel like it.
2. our token has been audited by www.avocad.lt - a well respected law firm, a part of CICERO - league of international lawyers. They have performed a HOWEY test on TDS token which resulted in absolute approval stating - TDS not being any kind of financial security.
3.  after the initial coin offering will end, our TDS token will be listed on widely trusted and well known token exchange platforms - Kraken, BittFinext and Bitrex.

Seriously? You gonna mark "newbies" with the "scammer"-flag before we even get a chance?? As if "pros" are more trustable, right? WTF, just cause i am new on this site, doesn't mean i didn't trade in crypto's before.. Seriously, bad habit.. I like that you warn people about scammers, but that's it - this post seem more like a way to keep all the customers to yourselves, so "newbies" don't stand a chance.. Hmm, pathetic... I ain't trading anything without showing my identity and getting the buyer/sellers identity too, that includes everything (if you got a little skill and knowledge in code-language etc.) - don't stamp down the "newbies" just cause you are too greedy yourself..  Huh Angry Angry

Thank you for information. One newbie proposed me Hero account which costs 0.03Btc.  I guess that he wants to deceive me because another man who has Hero accaunt sells it by 0.5btc.
