Reference Link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2334909.msg23755046#msg23755046
Amount Scammed: none but attempted to scam 0.33 BTC
Payment Method: BTC
Proof of Payment: N/A but here's the fake token transfer: https://etherscan.io/tx/0xdf5b7dcc6523ebf64b01ddfd23608cace84a8891f5552532abf728e9de8886ef
PM/Chat Logs: will provide if really needed but it's an obvious case and since all communications are done on phone, not bothered to screenshot right now
Additional Notes: Be careful with these fake ERC20 tokens used as collateral. Should be easy to spot though.

Not fake erc20 token, but this is fake Eidoo token indeed.

I believe you but i also think you should post screenshot as evidence.
Be careful with these fake ERC20 tokens used as collateral.
...and always check smart contract address.

Yeah i did that and saw the scam coming, that's why i didn't send him anything.

This user: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1008125 seems to have come out and done the same thing, requesting a loan for 1-2 days with EIDOO as collateral. this time though, someone got scammed i think.

Judging by the feedback dkpp gave, he got scammed 0.12 BTC from that user. Highly likely these 2 accounts are alts.
