This ICO has scammed hundreds of people out of hard-earned money.

-No LinkedIns for any member even they all went to prestigious Ivy league schools (fake)
-Partnerships with major companies (fake)
-ICO ended then entered phase 2 (dishonest)
-The same poster, Hung_Daddy, is ALWAYS the latest poster and he is posting nonsense (alternate account of thread creator or someone he paid to bump thread).

Please, mods, if you care about this forum, then you will be rational and not let anyone else get scammed.

Thank you.

That nickname. Cheesy Cheesy



Moderators aren't going to delete anything, if they were policing scams 90% of these boards had to go, at least 90% I mean.

Caveat emptor.

It's funny but it's the truth. If mods were to delete scam ANNs and other stuff posted on the altcoin section, only 1 page would remain for each child board lol. Best you can do is put negative trust to the people behind the coin so that their accounts couldn't be used anymore to scam others in this forum.

You can report the posts of the user you mentioned for the mods to delete his posts and possibly ban him for spam, too.

That is not the problem. The problem is that the newbies / most other users would believe that the remaining 1 page is "scam free". They would then not even take any basic precautions while dealing with these announcements.

There're a lot of problem if the mods doing that,
for example if the mods deleting the thread many people will think that the rest that did not get deleted are a legit project.
and when they get scammed by it many people will abusing this community and the mods.
the other problem is to much to be handled,everyday we can see new threads even more than that we can see 10 new threads everyday.
if they keep opening a new thread and keep creating a new account what will happen ?

that is why the mods did not take any action,it's not they don't want to do it or prevent the scammer.
but if they did this,many people will feel uncomfortable and if they feel their project is a legit one but in mod eyes are not,
we will see everyday a new thread created to attack the mods which is not a good sign for this community

There would be no problem on the forum's part by then, but that would be the newbies who wouldn't do any further research. The most basic response of someone who has been scammed is to find other people to blame when they literally haven't made anything to protect themselves from being a victim.

My point is that there isn't a need to delete threads that are related to scams. The mods are fully aware of the situation. You can cast -ve to people who scammed others so that other members would somehoe be guided. If you still get scammed by the same people, don't look for someone else to blame.
