I see someone is launching a fake Tezos. They copied the white paper in most areas word for word. I mean it's identical they just changed the name?!

But even with this folks are asking how they can buy into it?!

I'll be curious to see how much money someone can raise with such a hilariously obvious scam!

Are they really following through on that much momentum from the first project? I didn't really see much of a base of clients there for them to scam people away from. It reminds me of the eBay scams that may still be going on. I can't tell you how many people have told me that they have bought 500, ten thousand, or even 1 million Bitcoins on eBay for a low number.

That's is a good catch OP. There are quite a number of ICOs using stock photos for the management team and that is a sure tell. Some dont even bother reaming the image files! Won't go into names but the most recent one was an ICO trying to issue a coin for wifisharing.

Good DD and thanjs for the expose

And then once it comes time for delivery, the seller said some to some offshoot website to download a wallet and it turns out that the really purchase something that is nothing more than a crap coin with a name that really sounds like Bitcoin.
