ANN of the LUST ICO:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2068206.0

The ANN of this project is flooded with posts from hacked accounts.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=335464
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=387974
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=11549
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=223710
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=100713
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=65731
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=303610
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=192980
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=368228
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=73449
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=380058

All of this acccounts had their passwords changed on July 20, and then few days later started posting in just one topic - the Lust ANN. Some of this accounts where not used for months or even years. This are for sure not the only accouns which were hacked by this person, and will be used for this or future scams.

The OP of LUST ANN - darkota - has it's password changed just two days earlier, and then probably started preparing the scam.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=256238

The team info on the ANN thread and on the project webste - https://lust.agency/ - is also fake.

I found one of the guys presented is the project as Mark Levchin on vk.com but his name is Denis Abel.

Please someone react.

No surprise there. The bitcointalk administration will probably not do anything about this case (or often, any similar case).

The team info on the ANN thread and on the project webste - https://lust.agency/ - is also fake.
In order for me to neg. rate the user, you will have to do a little better. Did you do a reverse image search on individual team members to find out the source of the photos?

I found one of the guys presented is the project as Mark Levchin on vk.com but his name is Denis Abel.

Interesting. Can you take a screenshot of that?

So far I found only one of the persons. But the photo is clearly taken from the VK account.

Good find, OP. Negatively rated their OP accordingly, but are there other accounts from this operation which need to be tagged?

There are tens of accounts hacked. But so far they seems to be used just to create fake interest in the project.

Checked the website and they change/remove that guy from the Team. Now there is a new face. A Smart Contract developer. Googled and didn't find any result.


Digged into the website. Found another face https://lust.agency/img/4.jpg .

Is it me, or are there a lot of new scam icos popping up lately? With the recent accusations to Enjincoin it seems like every ico can easily turn scam and will turn scam if there is a lot of money on the table.

I would recommend people ask for heaps of proof when investing in something like an ico, to avoid situations like this.

There are a lot of fake accounts on there doing their best to bury any comments pointing to this Op and the scam accusations. I posted one about an hour ago and there was a spike in shit posts to bury me.

Look here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2068206.msg20819617#msg20819617

Try it and see.

It is 100% scam and they just flood it talking to themselves.

That is where BCT comes in handy. There are enough detectives here to root these fuckers out. Look at Josh Garza...he is going to prison because of users of this site.

It looks like they are trying to avoid BCT-based investors and are targeting Facebook and Twitter. This means their negative ratings won't show up unless the forum visitor is logged in as a BCT user.

The best way to combat this type of situation is to ensure that the "LUST ICO is a scam" thread is front and center on google's first page results for "LUST ICO". Even if they are not forum users they will be able to see this thread's content which clearly explains why the 'LUST ICO' is fraudulent.

Please some attention here.

Read the Lust Whitepaper: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2Au0kLZOVYRMmw1cGJqODJ5dlU/view

They plagiarized some parts form sexservice.io project.
https://sexservice.io
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1970891

Here are some proves.

1.
Lust: If the request is accepted, a client will be able to
access private information of that worker, like more photos, name or something
worker decides, and vise versa. After double confirmation, this money will be held by
smart contract and his wallet would generate an access key.

Sexservice.io: But these tokens are not in her wallet, but in a two-step contract. What is important, man’s wallet generates access key, which can be used later if service completed. For woman it is a signal the man are interested, have real intense and solvent. They can start a communication using methods they want. Man receive access to private information of the woman, like more photos, name or something she decides, and vise versa.

2.
Lust: This key has to be scanned later if they make an agreement and meet otherwise
the contract gets automatically closed in 48 hours, and the client gets his Etherium
tokens back in the wallet. The client can start with another try if she disagrees. Also,
once the service is completed, both parties have 24 hours to leave a feedback to
each other and gain reputation. Completely anonymous, transparent, secure and
impossible to shut down, this decentralised marketplace is the new revolution of the
sex industry.

Sexservice.io: If they are ready to proceed, she scans the access key, and man gets the service. Otherway contract will be closed automatically in 48 hours, and man will get SSIO tokens back and can start with another try. There will be the same outcome if she will not respond to a request, or they would not meet each other. After that, they both have 24 hours to leave a feedback to each other and gain reputation.


Also i see some other parts are plagiarized from Frantic project. You can compare that by yourself or wait till Frantic react.

And not, Lust project can not be realized technically! Don't be a fool!
"Escrow deals based on smart contracts enable us to develop contractual
arrangements in which the money is stored in a wallet temporarily, before the completion of the contract."
Remember that smart contracts works only when Subject of agreement in inside it. Sex and whores are not inside a contract!

Wow, I am quite surprised with the amount of Scam ICO's out there. As stated by aTriz, it certainly seems like any ICO can turn into a scam operation. OP, nice find. We need more people like you that help sniff out these scammers.

I've just gone through the list you provided for the forum accounts, as well as those spamming in their thread recently and have tagged twenty-two sock-puppets.

If you see more let me know and I'll paint them, too.

Even if they are not forum users they will be able to see this thread's content which clearly explains why the 'LUST ICO' is fraudulent.

I think few people google like "LUST ICO".

I think the think that users can do is regularly post links to this thread in https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2068206 with "LUST is a SCAM" notice, because there are so many spam messages.

Other thing is to ask thread moderator to make a notice in the first post. Thank God Bitcointalk is not decentralized yet and has an authority Smiley
