Reality check; what laws did these people break? Labcoin doesnt even exist as a legal entity, and there is no contract that binds anyone.
It's called fraud. Intentional deception made for personal gain.

What deception do you intend to prove, and who deceived you ? Be precise.

if labcoin dont log within this week, consider he/she legged it and gone.

all this mess, and not even small post for investor on btct, he slept all over all this mess.

swede if u reading it, why not post in btct to give investors info where to contact u, or some other info that investor need, like how other issuers did, they gave news to there investors on btct about what happen and what to do.

and you did nothing, lol , u r really not nice PR. if u dont have labcoin main login btct, then ok sorry.

then why not post here as soon u logged in when bitcointalk was up, u just left, what a nice PR

They claimed to collect 7000 BTC for mass production of gen1 chips and design gen2 chips. If we can prove these BTC are not used in these two purposes, then it is a fraud. Fabriazio is deceiving since he is the legal representative of the company that initiating this (virtual) IPO.

Scam has to be punished.

Otherwise, even if we lose little or even gain a little in this case, we may lose a lot in another one. Even we are always careful and lucky, the public confidence will go away and eventually be harmful to the whole bitcoin economy.

That's the reason why we have to find a way to fight with this scam no matter whether we are victims or not.

Moreover, if a registered company with CEO's name listed in a scam and this guy can be free of penalty by just saying "I don't know anything and I am not really involved", then don't expect any future (virtual) IPO can have any creditability.

How about let's create a volunteer group to unite us together in taking legal action against Fabriazio and Allesia?

In fact, we can actually prove they did spend some money to develop these chips (cf Howard wang and TheSeven)  and they could easily argue that development is ongoing. Missing deadlines and being or hiring incompetent people is not a crime. Selling unregistered securities however, is. As is making materially incorrect statements in your prospectus. But those are SEC issues.

How would you prove that? The IPO was done by "sam", no one knows who he is or if he even exists. How do you prove Fabrizio is even involved? Dont get me wrong, I have no doubt he is involved, as is Alberto, but IMO you will not be able to prove this without getting the SEC involved and subpoena BTCT.  Those documents that were published dont prove a damn thing, I dont even see Fabrizio's signature on there. Anyone could produce those.

Fabriazio admitted himself he has signed a contract, and Howard met him face to face. So he definitely is involved. He has to find a lawyer, not us, to defence for him.


Whether to report to SEC or police does not matter. Why not just report to both?

Correction; some anonymous forum members (including yours truly) claim that someone who appeared to be Fabrizio claimed that on IRC or through facebook/G+. You will need something better to convince a judge that he really is behind all this.

See above.

Dont ask me, I suggested duped investors do that a long time ago. Just dont hold your breath for anyone actually doing it; afaik the only bitcoin scammer that really is in legal trouble is Pirate. And guess who is to thank for that? Indeed, the SEC. Im not even sure anyone else filed a complaint.

I agree with you on reporting to SEC is a good idea.

I just cannot agree that if a company and the name of its legal representative are listed on the IPO contract and this IPO turns out to be a scam, this company and its founder can be free from even investigating by just saying he is innocent.

That's ridiculous. Then what's the point to list any company name and human name in the contract? If this is allowed, I think there should NOT be any IPO allowed in bitcoin exchange at all. It is encouraging scam rather than honest business. If it is really the current situation, then we either need to change it or be better never touch bitcoin funds since now.

News flash: it isnt allowed. There is a reason SEC regulations require you register these contracts. Otherwise anyone can issue fake stocks, see the fake Cointerra IPO on picostocks as a recent example. Are you going to sue Cointerra over that?

omg this shit again. The authority of the SEC relates to where the securities are being sold/targetted. Not the country of origin of the seller nor the object of the security:

http://www.sec.gov/rules/interp/33-7516.htm

So yes, this is well within SEC authority, since no reasonable measures were taken to prevent US investors from investing in this, but by all means contact your local security commission if you prefer.

I don't want to waste time in this arguing. Let's concentrate on fighting with the scammers first.

Maybe we just report to SEC and in the same time report to Hong Kong and Shen Zhen police, if someone of us are living there.

not a lot of concentration needed. Just fill out the form:

Now excuse me while I hold my breath for anyone to state they filled it out.

Maybe we should wait until it's confirmed as a scam before giving them an excuse to quit?

Stop putting more pressure on labcoin then it already is put... If I remember correctly he said that if they are not Hashing on 15th they will return the rest of the coins. If he fails to do that then go ahead.. but if they are put down by SEC you are never going to see a cent back anyway so what the fuck do you want them to get involved for ?

Actually, the SEC may well be the only realistic option to get at least some of your money back:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fair_Fund

As for waiting. Sure, go ahead and wait. Im not sure how the current October 15th promise differs from all the previous missed deadlines and promises, nor do I understand what more evidence anyone could possibly want this is a scam, but be my guest. See bitcoindaytrade to see how long Armandi will keep pushing deadlines and keep pretending its not a scam. People will be posting here a year from now and nothing will have changed.

give him a few days, lets wait the week out - he said he was travelling & he gave us the 15th of getting the tin back. all this SEC talk is just rubbish @ the moment, if you are stressing then you broke the rule of investing more than you can afford to lose.

This SEC talk was considered rubbish before Pirate get arrested, and before GLBSE closed it doors. I will say filling out that form most likely wont change a thing, but only because Im pretty sure the SEC is already investigating. Read this carefully (not just the title):
http://m.investor.gov/news-alerts/investor-alerts/investor-alert-ponzi-schemes-using-virtual-currencies

Anyone thinking the SEC has no jurisdiction and/or no interest in these bitcoin denominated securities IMO is in for a nasty surprise.
