I would just like to add my voice to the chorus of people who were scammed. I signed up to get 75 tokens and didn't get them. What a total joke.

I use a VPN. Is this the reason I didn't get my tokens? I only signed up once.

I am here in Baltimore. These fellows have taken their office address off their website since yesterday.
I was going to show up in person, but now I am not sure where their office is.

Welcome to Authorship Bounty Campaign

Hi J,

Thank you for registering.

You've been granted 75 ATS tokens for participating on our Bounty campaign.

The tokens will be distributed to all participants the moment the ICO is over.

The ATS tokens will be listed on several cryptocurrency exchanges soon after the ICO is over on 14th Sept.

For any questions, feel free to reach us at contact@authorship.com

We look forward to building Authorship together!

Sincerely,

Authorship.com Team


The bottom of their e-mails say 11015 York Road, Cockeysville MD 21030 USA

However, google maps says that is a place called Precision Tune Auto Care....
https://www.google.com/maps/place/11015+York+Rd,+Cockeysville,+MD+21030/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x89c81279781138df:0x418d7f10fb767a74?sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwja8NDB56zWAhVM6YMKHUImCaIQ8gEIJTAA

So here we have a man named Petre from Romania (he confirmed this a few pages back) who lied about his name and is promoting a company that lists an address that really belongs to an auto-repair shop. Then he changes his story multiple times about what is going on/when people will receive their payments, finally sending out an e-mail claiming that anyone who hasn't been paid is a cheater and that he will be taking a week off.

This whole thing screams SCAM louder and louder the deeper you look into it.

The coward Peter didn't dare to answer my question.


"I am from Vietnam/Nigeria, they blocked these countries" - Not true.


Then answer me Peter:

I registered only once (of course), without VPN or Tor. There is no way in dozens of thousands of IPs, the IP I signed up with was chosen for more than 2 other people to sign up. What is the chance for this to happen?

75 ATS may mean nothing but I want transparency and honesty. If you suspended my account because there are more than 3 registrations from the IP I registered with, please show us the 3 other registrations' info (email,...). My email: nttphuc02@gmail.com

So it's obvious they simply blocked the whole IP arrays from certain countries, like 123.xx.xx.xx

Okay.

So i've waited, patiently, until today and the final update about the free ATS distribution.

I've registered with my own personal IP, no VPN, no TOR. And nobody else uses it.
I've got through the withdrawal process and received the mail stating everything's okay.
I have one referral : a friend of mine. Using his own IP, mail, ETH address.

Quote
var amount = 0;
Hello,

Your withdrawal request was received and will be processed within 2-3 days to the ETH address you provided:

0x8283Ba2d4c38eB6223Ec384cE5f2c7c377096f30

Thank you,

Authorship.com Team


But... still nothing.

I don't understand what i did wrong :/

Were just bounty coins distributed? Those who participated in ICO have received coins?

The founder (https://www.linkedin.com/in/nolan-warfield-aa064713/) indeed owns a car repair company (https://www.facebook.com/PrecisionTuneAutoCareHuntValley/)

Both he and Peter are involved in a more or less legit marketing platform for authors (http://SeriousReading.com).

I checked this before I got involved, and it only raised minor red flags, could have still been legit.

What they did with the fake-bounty program however... will reflect on their other businesses, as well.

I understand their dilemma but this looks really bad, the fact that the bounty claim is already closed seems very odd considering that most am sure have yet to provide an ETH address for the payouts... It looks like they are skimping out.  

At a time when ICO's are being scrutinized, I think it's really not a wise move to piss off people who promoted you (legit or not)

Anyone with valid sign ups still waiting ?

Clearly a bunch are, but I might have jumped the gun with my post, their email said payments completed but I see the link still having updates?
https://etherscan.io/token/0x2dAEE1AA61D60A252DC80564499A69802853583A
Those are from different source addresses, isn't this just people consolidating their multiple signups to one address?


ah yes, i was on my phone and just looked at the timestamps.

I have no received my bounty campaign tokens, only had one account, and was not fraudulent in any way.

Also, Peter said we would receive our tokens regardless of whether we filled out the Withdrawal form.  The Withdrawal form was closed again this morning and can no longer be filled out.  That appears to have been a lie and nobody who failed to fill out the withdrawal form has received their tokens.  I did fill out the withdrawal form yesterday while it was still open and I still have not received my tokens.

What is going on?

Peter, i m sorry to say this, but you are not a smart person.

It was be MUCH easier for you company to complete bounty campaign,
with all the fraud referrals and scammers etc. and spent this 1 million ATS.

Like many people say - in every ICO bounty always will be many not honest people,
who try to cheat the system.

Now - by your actions (changing the rules of bounty campaign, after this start;
not keeping your word etc) you have the HUGE bad PR damage for Authorship project and
risk to lose all 19 million and ruin all project.

Is this worth it?

In the shoes of your investors, i m thinking 1000 times - can i trust my money to this
guy, who don t understand this simple thing, which i wrote about.

Happy vacation.

Last night (around midnight) I got a mail stating:

"Hi,

Following our previous update we want to announce that EVERYONE will be receiving its ATS tokens IF there are no more than 3 registrations from the IP he registered with. This is our final decision.

We've already begun to process payments as it can be seen here: https://etherscan.io/token/0x2dAEE1AA61D60A252DC80564499A69802853583A

Regards,
Authorship.com Team"

------

And finally around 2 pm I got my ATS sent from https://etherscan.io/address/0xa68ba00236769703d30c17f63444cc7b3d509c72#tokentxns

------

But then with the mail 2 hours ago stating "The tokens distribution for our bounty campaign has officially ended." it probably will not fulfill everybody´s (deserved) hopes...

I don’t think that some people are getting their tokens and that’s a huge amount of transfer fees to do all that
