What happened:
Yet another ICO scam thread is what happened.

Which ICO scam does it involve this time?
A vague nonsensical 'social media' blockchain-magical-fairy-dust-app called 'Karbon'.

Their announcement thread can be found here

The Bought/Hacked forum account used to post the OP can be found here

Their bounty thread to get people to promote their scam can be found here


This topic uses BOT for increase in messages. They distribute the same messages with 30 on 150 page of a forum. Pay attention.

You look here:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2042235.1100

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2042235.2100

They have written 156 pages in 2 days of the same messages

Damned Russian swindlers

LOLZ the mofo just keeps asking the same question

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2042235.msg21101982#msg21101982

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2042235.msg21102628#msg21102628

Example:
Quote


This bought or hacked account keeps posting the same messages over and over, for example this one:
Is it too late for the bounty/signature campaign, forgot to ask.
Is it too late for the bounty/signature campaign, forgot to ask.
Is it too late for the bounty/signature campaign, forgot to ask.
Is it too late for the bounty/signature campaign, forgot to ask.
Is it too late for the bounty/signature campaign, forgot to ask.

I don't mean to blow my own horn but I sent 2 messages to the Altcoins mod this morning at around 9am about a different user doing the same thing (daemmon) and also posted on the Meta board at 12.37 pm.

I'm getting tired of all the bounty-seeking twats helping these scammers con more people into believing they are legitimate, solely because you can't be bothered to actually look up a few posts and see that it has already been called out as a fraudulent ICO.

I'll remove your rating this time but I tend to limit the appeal process to a one-time-only opportunity.

Do better in future.

Thank you for understanding , sorry but that account "Kentedvard" , the original owner of the bounty thread , he didn't get a report at that time when I posted the reservation for translation . I thought it was real , but after he got a report by Lauda , you can check the time when it was reported .

Thank you for your time
Have a great day

Good job cryptodevil, Too many scams masquerading as legitimate ICO's on the forum. Is there a way to create a thread or sub listing these scams? It will be of great help to the community.

Delete all your supporting posts for the scam and, once done, notify me and I will remove the rating.

Next time be more diligent.

There is a big problem not with the reporting SCAMs , which I totally support, but with his methods. The same work that he has to FALSE reporting people of "Promoting scam coin", he should at least give a warning to the person first.
He gave me a negative trust because I candidate to make a translation for the coin not knowing itīs a SCAM, nothing else. Since I am a newbie here, I didnīt know where to check and see what coin is Scam or not. Not warning people, just giving them a bad rating for candidacy is NOT HONESTY. Itīs easier to do, but very dishonest work. Since he is the POLICE for SCAMMERS, honesty should be a policy of his work, not this.
A fair WARNING, should guide his activity beforehand.
So he ruins people reputation for no reason, instead of doing his job the right way.

Yes, I apologize for being naive, or a newbie. But thatīs not right and I want my trust rating repaired.
Please.

You don't exactly live up to your username given that you posted this TWO DAYS AFTER this scam had been exposed.

Yes, I apologize for being naive, or a newbie. But thatīs not right and I want my trust rating repaired.
Please.

Yeah you don't really come across as so contrite in your dm to me, though:
Hi, your idiot. I am reporting you for false statement. You put a distrust on my file saying that I am promoting scam coin. Thatīs not TRUE. I candidate myself to translate their material, but I didnīt and I didnīt know they were scammers.
So, you seem to be the scammer here, making a false statement about people to damage their reputation.

It would probably be a good idea perhaps to start by deleting the post you made offering to translate for this scam and then try asking me to reconsider the rating, no?

First of all, I admit that I am suppose to learn more about how things work here, and I am just finding out of your comment that I can delete my request for translation from there.
Second of all, Yes I PM you even before I report you, and I said you I would because I was mad about your methods.
Third, youīre stating that I candidate to translate with the knowledge that the coin was a scam. Thatīs untrue, you have been reported in your past for promoting scam coin. Did you know it? Did you do do it on purpose? Thatīs why you assume that I would do it? And, where was the warning that the coin was a scam? Was in the thread itself? So, itīs a lot of questions that could be avoided with a simple message.
But you donīt take the trouble to warn people, do you? You just come to an assumption, and like the all powerful authority, you go out damaging people reputation without any concern.
So, if you want to do a POLICE job that I think itīs VERY VALUABLE and APPLAUSABLE, do it right. Donīt be a jerk up front, be fair. A simple warning would avoid all of that.
I am not a kid anymore, so I am here to be a scumbag, I value my reputation and what you did, made me really mad.
So, please repair my trust and I do it likewise.

ismart1, from what I can see from cryptodevil, he certainly has a lot on his hands. It is one of his main responsibilities to make this forum free of scammers so anyone could browse through it and invest with complete confidence and without a shadow of doubt that it may be a scam. (of course, that would be the ideal image). To do this, he has to ban all those who have been 'involved' one way or another. Who knows with all these hacked accounts who may be who.

Just be calm about it and discuss it in private with him if he has enough time. The best you can do is remove all the work you have connected to Karbon and then notify cryptodevil of your actions. I am sure he will be lenient if you provide a proper reason for it and have taken enough actions in removing your work. I would also suggest you also remove your negative trust from his profile. Remember, you can always give negative trust back if you are still mad.

Cryptodevil thanks for contributing to the community and we hope to see many more ICOs busted! Of course, it would be best if there were no scammers in the first place.....
