So I followed the ATS token for a few weeks. I gained quite a few tokens by promoting them on social media and registering with them.
When it came out to distribute the tokens, they came up with some lame excuses and didn't distribute any.
If this is how they plan to do business, I would stay away. Just words of advice.

do you send this ICO dev pm or email to ask your problem? I just see they say they still distribute  their token. So you can wait 1-3 day

Just received an email saying that all the tokens have been distributed. If you did not get yours you are a crook and we will not talk to you.
Great way to deal with people lol.

Seems like ATS is scamming many people these days since the scam accusations towards ATS is making the list long.
There is similar thread here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2185901.0 and this person has also been scammed by ATS.
So ATS is using the referral scheme to get more vistiors and registrations on their website but giving nothing in return.
I guess its time to make posts on Scam Accusations board. Make posts there so that everybody gets enlightened.

I got my tokens, but I had to add custom token to MyEtherWallet to see them, as described here: http://authorship.com/2017/08/01/how-do-i-view-ats-tokens-in-my-wallet/.

Tried it. It did not make a difference.

I did not receive tokens either. They have sent an email with reasons and excuses, but none of them describes my situation. I did not cheat nor used a vpn or something like that.

It's not a scam. I got my tokens, so I can confirm that they are distributing at least some of them. But yes I would be p***ed off too if I hadn't received any.

I think their initial post about not sending out any more was a bit of an over-reaction, which to their credit they seem to have now realised, which is why they've put out a new statement saying they'll send the tokens to anyone where there were no more than 3 registrations from the same IP address.

Obviously there has been a lot of multi-accounting though to cause the problem in the first place.

Same here: many emails, no tokens. I call scam indeed, if this is how they get people to give them referrals for free.

I'm still waiting their tokens too. I participated at airdrop only so it won't be so sad if I lose them. But if you worked hard to get them... this differs.

ATS are not scam I already receive the token that they are distributed it takes 2 days because their policy is first come first serve basis, they are going to email you an address for you to check if you receive a token if your using same ip address you can't claim any tokens you will read them on the email yhat they always sent to you every update.

Seems they kicked out anyone who used a VPN, which nowadays is a lot of people.

It might not be a scam, I wouldn't be in a hurry for such an accusation, but I haven't received my bounty tokens either. Although there were not so many tokens earned, I'm still waiting to receive them.

Is VPN a problem for many coins? I think IOTA and byteball wallets don't take well to VPN. But then even if I switch it VPN off, something like Bittrex will inform me I'm logging in from a different ISN.
Anyway, is there a consolidated list of scam coins? That would be lovely. As some have pointed out, something like IOTA may not be a scam, but they use home-rolled code. There are many from genuine-but-incompetent to outright look-at-my-eyes-not-your-wallet types. Gotta start somewhere so it would be helpful to have a list of the snake oil sellers.

Thanks for sharing this! I did so and found nothing -    There are no matching entries so they haven't sent me anything

Who buys this coin? Some people are really deserving to be scammed. Sec and china is really right to regulate ICOs. People are investing in every ico...
