I saw this on ICOalert. I'm very concerned about honest people getting scammed by this upcoming ICO. Here is the website: https://www.quorchain.com

Here is the twitter: https://twitter.com/quorchain_io

If you go look at the team members, you will not be able to find any of them on LinkedIn since they're all fake. Just do a google reverse image search and you can see for yourself. For example, their "CEO" Joseph Padilla, is really a stock photo for a manhattan modeling agency.

Their COO, Jason Strickland, is really a guy named Steve Wilson who works for Constellation Research.

Bonnie Lee, one of their advisors, is really Michelle Wu, who was (is?) a Boston City Council President.

Murray Mayko, another one of their supposed advisors, is just another headshot stock photo:

Jonathan Wright is really a guy named Tom Hatten, who is the CEO of Paradise Valley.

I could keep going but I think everyone gets the point. The crypto community needs to be aware that this is a scam, and if anyone can contact those who have had their identities compromised, it would be very helpful. Let's get this scam ICO shut down.

Thanks for pointing this out. I can't seem to find the LinkedIn for any of the people they list on their team and with a reverse image search on google, it is clear that the people they list as their team are not real and are just pictures taken from other sites.

I hope nobody gets pulled into this scam.

I have just made a ConcourseQ page for Quorchain (https://concourseq.io/Q/Quorchain). Would you like to add these red flags?

How do we take this scam down? Any other outlets to make people aware? Maybe we can contact the people whose identities have been compromised?

Reached out to Tom Hatten (person they used for Jonathan Wright) and I guess he had them remove his picture. They stole a new person's photo for Jonathan Wright:
