I reported a topic with a scam yesterday— https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3119464, but it seems that moderators moved it instead of removing: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3119577.0 since the dates are matching? Maybe the scammer created two threads at the same time?
oxygentrade.io has just been recently registered as you can see on https://www.whois.net/: Creation Date: 2018-03-12T17:14:51Z to scam people. On the official twitter https://twitter.com/oxygen_trade/ you can find out what the correct address is and they also posted a warning:

Please beware of scammers - the number of cases is increasing. For ex., @bitcointalk thread: https://[Suspicious link removed]/FW9BuC . Make sure you follow official #Oxygentrade sources, which you can find on #Oxygen website: http://oxygen.trade .

Tagged. It seems that they copied most of the site but changed the footer slightly. One of the key details is that they did not think of changing the whitepaper to match the domain URL. At the very end, it still links to oxygen.trade, rather than the fake .io site.

Thanks, actmyname, didn't notice that they forgot to modify the white paper, those goofs can't even scam people properly  Grin
I guess moderators are overwhelmed as the topic is still there even though I reported it.
