(Probably) Cheating in Social Media Campaigns


I was looking at the spreadsheet of Utrust campaign, I participated in signature, twitter and facebook campaigns, and out of curiosity I went to look at etherscan with someone's wallet (public key) randomly because they posted that the distribution had started and I wanted to confirm if anyone had already received.

Looking at the address 0x4858445E665398EADDE92933cC65038811465D99 I noticed that there were 3 transactions of the STK token with equal values. I realized it was from the Twitter campaign (which I participated in). The screenshots I made may even be a coincidence (which I doubt), and coincidentally the 3 users post in the Indonesian local community too.



The transactions were sent to the one I defined as the principal address, through these other 3 addresses (belonging to the 3 users in question). I could not find any other suspicious transactions, but I believe these accounts are connected and are being used to break the rules and take advantage of the campaigns.

I don’t want to make false accusations, I tried to gather some evidence, I don’t know if it proves anything, but it's strange and suspicious (I thought). I also noticed that they farm merits between them.

They're Indonesian. I'm sure they're alts. I've got myself a few reports from forum members who also said that there are lots of cheating occured on that kind of campaign but haven't got the time to look it up, this is one of them.

I have some other accounts that I suspect, I'm still investigating, gathering evidence, I don't want to be unfair to anyone.

I have some other accounts that I suspect, I'm still investigating, gathering evidence, I do not want to be unfair to anyone.

I'm also rounding up the reports as I can already see a handful number of alts participated in the same campaign, a few of them already got a red tag though. This will be my short project.

Whenever I find this type of user (cheater), I'll post. It is possible to make a good income by being honest and doing it right (and with only one account).

This is going to be my project too. I don't tolerate dishonest and greedy people.

Let the OP need to catch, I was been scammed in some bounties and seen in the past, Nothing will happen in this forums, if you can try to catch them. There is no justice for people here. I might leave this forums at the end of year before that ill write about scammers on my blog to reveal in public.

There will be hundreds if not thousands of accounts abusing these crapcoin bounties and often they're blatantly obvious just by looking at their spreadsheets. Sometimes just going through their spreadhseets alone you will see patterns in usernames and post-counts etc. Sometimes just clicking on handful of profiles that joined the campaign at roughly the same time you will see they all have the same registered date or very close which is usually a good indication of alts. I'm sure many aren't smart enough to cover their tracks via blockchain evidence either and send to the same address etc but all of this is very time consuming to look into.

Isn't this the responsibility of the campaign manager though? Whoever that may be whether they are low rank or high ranked. It should be one of the most important factors for campaign/bounty managers because if they are enrolling alt accounts without reviewing them before accepting, then they themselves could be accused of enrolling their own alt accounts.
