OP, I didn't read this entire thread in close detail but I get the gist of it and I applaud you on providing all of this information.  The thread is old, yet I don't remember it and this is the first time I'm reading it--and it sounds like this guy/team was the stereotypical ICO scammer who's now moved on to other disreputable methods of fleecing idiots and ignoramuses for their money.  And even just those who put too much trust in people, and that's the worst type of victim.

Jeweled pet collars?  Jesus.

All those coins endorsed by McAfee are scams
https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1147856728744255490

Take a look at the scam SAFEX, the founder of this shitcoin Daniel Dabek aka xorlogic https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=660653 abandoned his thread https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1258419.0 and stop answering questions about his scam, he don't answer why his multiple twitter accounts got suspended or why they got delisted from Coingecko, he also banned most of the SAFEX investors from the SAFEX discord & he keep silence while his ponzi scam colapses.

He is getting help from Onecoin & Dascoin scammers, last comment in this forum he said i was a criminal for asking questions.
[...] Please go away, and stop harassing people who are trying to get things done.
You should be ashamed, and it is a crime to do what you are doing. [...]
Mcafee promoted the SAFEX scam & gave very bad financial advice.
https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/941569546367807489

Those SAFEX and Apollo criminals deserve jail.

Safex is a scam - Daniel Dabek is the creator of the scam Dascoin, the Director of the scam Netleaders & the creator of the scam SAFEX

Confused about UAS (The United Allied States)?








The United Allied States is an invisible country, where Steve McCulah is the President (https://uas.govt.agency). I'm going to wait a while for people to digest this if you haven't already heard.

The only additional fact I will add is where do you think UAS is located? Thats right AFRICA!

Steve is the president of a country that doesn't exist providing a non existent budget to buy an invisible plane. I don't have anything much to say about this non existent topic. 

Just remember Steve is all smoke and mirrors.

Without looking too far in similar cryptocurrency scams you can take a look at SAFEX, another coin endorsed by John Mcafee.
Daniel Dabek owner of SAFEX is also Liberland Ambassador for Serbia, Daniel and other scammers from Onecoin, Dascoin, Netleaders, & more are promoting their scam in the official Facebook page of the embassy.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1258419.msg56099244#msg56099244
Seems like those scammers are following the same agenda of scamming innocent people.
Remember when Liberland president was scamming refugees offering them passports for 10k USD.
http://sombor-blog.de/how-liberland-abuses-refugees-and-fools-the-world/
Apollo will probably do the same & scam poor Africans with fake United Allied States passport.

GSX Whitepaper Jan 17th 2021


The following are SOME direct quotes for the GSX Terms & Conditions:


GOLD SECURED CURRENCY (GSX) COIN DISTRIBUTION EVENT (https://gsxcde.com/terms-and-condition).


If you do not agree with these terms, you are NOT allowed to purchase GSX from the company.


1. Conditions to GSX coin distribution

Neither the Company nor any of the Apollo Fintech Ltd. Team has provided you with any advice regarding whether GSX is a suitable investment for you.

You are legally permitted and authorized to purchase, receive, hold and otherwise make use of the GSX in accordance with the laws of your country and any other relevant jurisdiction applicable to you

1.10. By acquiring GSX, you are not making a regulated investment or any other designation of this character as may be interpreted by the regulator in your jurisdiction.

1.12. You waive any right you may have, or any right you may thereafter obtain, to participate in a class action lawsuit or a class wide arbitration against any entity or individual involved with the distribution of GSX.

1.13. Your acquisition of GSX does not involve a purchase or receipt of shares, ownership, or any equivalent in any existing or future public or private company, corporation or other entity in any jurisdiction and is not a security.

1.17. You acknowledge that an employee of Apollo Fintech or its subsidiaries will not make any statements about the expected price of cryptocurrencies. If an Apollo Fintech CDE employee does make a statement regarding the price of cryptocurrencies, then their statement is an opinion from which no rights can be derived, and they are going explicably against employee protocol.

1.18. You guarantee and acknowledge that you are not a citizen or resident or resident of the United States.

3.2. Terms and Conditions

a. I have received and reviewed the Coin distribution event terms and have taken appropriate legal and tax advice with respect to the same.

b. I understand that GSX coins do not represent nor do they entitle the holder, in any way whatever, to a:

i. Depository Account;
ii. Custodial Account;
iii. Cash Value Insurance Contract;
iv. Annuity Contract; or
v. Equity, Share, Ownership, Payouts and/or Debt Interest.

c. GSX coins are held subject to the terms and conditions of the Coin distribution event terms and this Application (this Application).

d. No certificate will be issued in relation to my GSX coins and my personal GSX coin holding will not be reflected, recognized, or recorded in any account or ledger maintained by Apollo Fintech Ltd.

I am not aware of and am in no way relying on, and did not become aware of the distribution of GSX coins through or as a result of: any form of general solicitation or general advertising including, without limitation, any article, notice, advertisement or other communication published in any newspaper, magazine or similar media or broadcast over television or radio, or electronic mail over the internet, in connection with the offering and distribution of GSX coins and I am not purchasing GSX coins and did not become aware of the offering of GSX coins through or as a result of any seminar or meeting to which I was invited by, or any solicitation of a subscription by,
a person not previously known to me in connection with investments in securities generally;


Now we have direct quotes from the https://gsxcde.com website for GSX.







GSX is backed by assets
GSX holders are the trust beneficiaries of the mineral rights and assets.
Continued growth increase is asset value of land and gold backing GSX
Yearly bonuses for GSX holders paid yearly
GSX is redeemable for actual gold
GSX combines the best elements from a stable coin, cryptocurrency and investment coin.



Discussion

In the first line in the T&C we read  - Gold secured currency (GSX). This is because GSX has assets that are securities (e.g. gold and land where the value is derived from) and therefore is a security.

You are also are  NOT allowed to purchase GSX if you are citizen or resident of the United States (1.18). If you are a citizen or reside in the US and have purchased GSX, you have broken the terms and conditions and broken the contract. Your problem, no refunds.

If you live in any other country and authorised to purchase GSX you must abide by your jurisdiction laws and pay taxes. This is your responsibility, not Apollo Fintech. Remember every country has strict laws on who can buy a security and it’s your problem, no refunds.

Now to remove any legal responsibility away from Apollo Fintech, if you do buy GSX it is NOT a regulated investment. This means NO independent, legal entity (e.g. FINMA etc)  can protect you or make Apollo Fintech return any looses you may occur if this turns out to be a scam, regardless of jurisdiction. Another words no refunds.

Apollo Fintech is basically saying if your regulator in your jurisdiction says it MUST be regulated, and you bought GSX, you did so illegally, thus no refunds.

A further attempt to cover Apollo Fintech arses, if you buy GSX you cannot bring class action lawsuit or a class wide arbitration against any entity or individual involved with the distribution of GSX (1.12). When this turn belly up and the shit hits the fan, no refunds as you cannot sue which WAS your only option, AND the GSX investment is NOT regulated therefore you have no protection (1.10). No refunds.

When you do purchase GSX (1.13).

   i. you will NOT receive receipt of shares
   ii. you will NOT receive a receipt of ownership to anything
   iii. GSX does NOT involve any equivalent in any existing or future public or private company, corporation or other entity in any jurisdiction and is not a security.

  Now Im a little confused with the T&C 1.13 iii. The very first sentence in their T&C they say GSX is a security backed by gold. The GSXCDE website also clearly states GSX holds are trust beneficiaries of the mineral rights and assets and yearly bonuses are paid. This makes it a security but I guess not because all it takes is Apollo Fintech saying it is not a security therefore its not a security, right? LOL WRONG!

But what would I know. Just because GSX is advertised by Apollo Fintech as a security and you bought it thinking you were getting rights to other assets, I hate to burst your bubble but according to the T&C it is NOT a security. Confused? Very contradictory, but some of you went ahead anyways and bought GSX. Sorry, no refunds.

To further add salt to your wounds this is repeated in the T&C (3.2, a) and a further alarming admission is made. “ No certificate will be issued in relation to my GSX coins and my personal GSX coin holding will not be reflected, recognized, or recorded in any account or ledger maintained by Apollo Fintech Ltd.” Just in case you were wondering a ledger is a blockchain. Apollo Fintech just admitted when you buy their non-security/security in which they have no responsibility, they don’t have to record GSX purchase in the blockchain, in fact they don’t have to record it at all. You agreed to this when you purchased GSX. No refunds.

You also acknowledge that if you did buy GSX it was not based on information given by Apollo Fintech or its subsidiaries (1.17). For example if you bought GSX based upon what you read on gsxcde.com which is a subsidiary of Apollo Tech, then it’s only an opinion and not investment advice. You should have appropriate legal and tax advice (3.2, a) because Apollo Fintech is not responsible. You will not get a refund.

You also agreed that your GSX purchase is not because of advertising, solicitation, reading of articles, videos or any electronic media NOR your purchase of these GSX coins based upon a person NOT previously known to me in connection with investments in securities generally. So if you bought GSX because an unknown person recommended it, you problem, no refunds. Sorry you broke the terms and conditions by doing that.


To reinforce the conditions in (1.13) it is reiterated that GSX coins do NOT represent or entitle the holder to a Depository Account, Custodial Account, Cash Value Insurance Contract, Annuity Contract or an Equity, Share, Ownership, Payouts and/or Debt Interest. Yeah I know Apollo Fintech is contradicting themselves. But we all know what that means, Apollo Fintech has no financial responsibility if you broke any of these rules, so no refunds.


Conclusion

The gsx white paper is contradictory in places and offers more confusion to the legal standing of what GSX is. In places it says it is a security, and on their official CDE fundraising website they also clearly state it is a security, however in the same breathe they claim it is not a security. Confused? lol. I bet some of you bought it anyways….

The terms and conditions to buy GSX (gsxcde.com/terms-and-condition) requires you not to reside or be an American citizen. If you are then you broke the T&C’s, no refund.

If you live anywhere else you can purchase GSX as long as you had independent financial and tax advice, I bet you didn’t.  When you bought GSX it wasn’t allowed to be based on advertising, solicitation, reading of articles, videos or any electronic media and NOT from a person NOT previously known to you in connection with investments. If you did that, well thats your issue, no refunds.

Also Apollo Fintech will not issue a certificate nor does this institution have any responsibility for recording  your GSX coins on a ledger or anything of the like. How do you feel now that the only record is the blockchain in which Apollo Fintech does NOT have to record your purchase? They basically said if something goes wrong with the database, your problem, no refunds. Imagine that, a billion dollar company with huge assts saying they have no responsibility in recording your assets. That does NOT happen in real life people, thats why you should have looked for independent financial advice. A financial institution has a responsibility of accurate record keeping and the ownership of assets.

In conclusion the white paper contradicts itself and the official GSXCDE website. The white paper attempts to put the sole responsibility on the purchaser of GSX and Apollo Fintech has NO responsibility in recording your assets. If you did buy GSX through advertising, electronic media such as video or articles or from a person not known to you with investments then you have broken the T&C’s and entitled to no refund.

When this scam does come to an end, no regulatory financial body is able to help retrieve your lost funds because this was not regulated. You also agreed not to sue them when you bought GSX. This is your risk you took when you didn’t read the T&C’s.

I wonder how long before Apollo finch change their wording to rape you of your hard earned money. Thats what liars do.

How do you feel now?

Apollo Fintech and GSX coin are scams. Steve McCullah is a scammer.

Warning


What happens when scammers want to steal more of your money?

Easy, just make up cryptocurrencies and make grandiose statements and lie. When that cryptocurrency starts to fail make a new one and then get people to lock it up for years...for huge returns...just like GSX. Why not trick people into buying it by offering free coins - because there no such thing as inflation, right? Don't think about it, don't research it, you are running out of time! Buy now!

Locking away your funds stops you from exiting the scam, think about it.  Way-to-go GSX holders. LOL

Where's the decentralisation, Apollo controls the entire platform including what the price of GSX is.

Next scam step:




Zenon Currency








There we have it, Apollo's next scam project.

Jeweled pet collars?  Jesus.

LOL, it's  a laugh for sure. But knowing how Steve McCullah operates he always names his companies similar to real companies so people are tricked into believing he is rich and successful. But he is a liar.

Looks like Steve father has jumped onto the band wagon for scamming. Let's take a look into Evans Collars (aka Tsavari).





In previous posts you can see Steven McCullah is also registered under this business. Take note of Tsavari Mining - gold and ore mining in southern Africa (Fake Website tsavari.co).




This is the McCullah's unfinished SCAM website - I have written about this before:



https://www.tsavari.co/more-about-me




Extract from an article written about Steven claiming the real Tsavari business is Evans Collars.

"Tsavari makes 12 million dollar dog collar. Paula Abdul one of their famous clients!

Why: Tsavari is the world’s first luxury dog collar brand showcasing real white sapphires and rubies in their collars. When the best isn’t good enough, you should consider some of their luxury dog collars. Tsavari also designs and creates custom precious collars for your loving pets.

Does your precious pooch deserve the most couture of collars? Check out the details on this new custom pink diamond dog collar that’s being valued at over 12 million dollars.  Now that’s some bling worth barking for!

The U.S. dog jewelry company Tsavari — a branch of Evans Collars Inc. — caters to celebrities and the mega weathy with a line of dog collars that prior to this product release ranged from $2,500  to $73,699.

So who’s pet wears Tsavari?  Owner Stephen McCullah says Paula Abdul is just one outspoken celebrity client.  But with the launch of the line’s latest offering, these collars are reaching for the very noblest of necklines.

Not yet debuted to the public –McCullah tells Pursuitist that jewelers are still working on the buckle — Tsavari recently hinted at adding a supremely coveted canine tag to its collection, called The Majesty
".

https://pursuitist.com/your-precious-pooch-needs-this-12-million-collar/




Below is Paula Abdul Instagram post of the REAL business Tsavari.com



https://www.instagram.com/p/sQWRaKQMNc/?utm_source=ig_embed



Conclusion

There was a real company is called www.tsavari.com and Paula Abdul was a client. This is not Stevens or Robert McCullahs business.

Steven and his father Robert (aka Bob) McCullah have tried to claim that this was their company. Well I guess that how they roll, making up company names similar to real companies just to scam people. Fell free to read back on his thread for all the scam connections.

The company Paula Abdul bought from is www.tsavari.com. The scam company Steve and his father operate is https://www.tsavari.co (aka Evans Collars) - read back on post for proof.

That is the connection. Scam Scam Scam

Apollo Fintech leader, Steve McCullah strikes again with his ignorance and lies. Any buyer of GSX (and APL) has been scammed.

Historically Steve was asked if GSX is a security, and the following was his response:







Now take a minute to stop laughing and digest his response. I’m not sure where to begin. On all the “official” Apollo websites it clearly states that this a security backed by gold and land…blab bla bla. This makes it a security (although various Apollo papers contradict each other).

Steve has come up with a way to circumnavigate GSX being a security! Dividends are referred to as bonuses and these bonuses that are paid out to GSX holders come from a randomised pool of funds. And that makes it NOT a security, according to Steve.

And look! Apollo is in the beginning stages of SEC regulation!

What the heck are you talking about Steve? Because it is now called bonuses and are funds are random it therefore is NOT a security? I guess with your fake university education that is Steve’s uneducated interpretation. LOL. What the heck does that mean? Steve has poo as a brain and is actively scamming people.

Allow me to to blow this to shit.


SEC

Lets start with the SEC. The SEC is the regulatory financial body in America.

The terms and conditions to buy GSX (gsxcde.com/terms-and-condition) requires you not to reside or be an American citizen. If you are American then you broke the T&C’s. See above posts as what is said. Thats the end of the SEC regulation. So, the SEC is only for people who reside in America, not elsewhere. If the SEC did say it is a security or not, it doesn’t apply to any other country. But since Americans cannot buy GSX it doesn’t matter what the SEC says.


Did you buy APL/GSX based upon what Apollo Fintech Advertised?


When you bought GSX it wasn’t allowed to be based on advertising, solicitation, reading of articles, videos or any electronic media and NOT from a person NOT previously known to you in regards to investments. If you did that, well thats your issue, no refunds. Did you buy into this scam because of any of the above?

Also in the T&C’s-  you should have taken appropriate independent legal and tax advice. This means not from Steve. So if you blindly bought GSX based upon what Steve said then you broke the T&C’s.



Howey Test


Now under the Howey Test, it “states that an investment contract is a transaction, scheme or contract where a people invest their funds in a common enterprise and expect profits solely from the efforts of a third party or promoter” (https://www.leewayhertz.com/howey-test/).

The Howey test therefore says GSX is a security because there is an expectation of profits, and this comes from gold mining and land value (apparently). Otherwise no-one would buy GSX unless the expectation is to increase in value, right?! Apollo also clearly states that dividends are paid out!…it’s a security!

But if you do not believe me then do what Apollo Fintech says in its T&C’s - go get independent financial advice.




If you do live in America (and broke the rules) and did buy into Apollo and GSX here are some thoughts to ponder



If you receive income from referral links…

The Order from the Commissioner alleged Bitconnect marketed tokens for funding targeted to the general public in the US using “affiliates” for promotion. In exchange the “affiliates” were credited for each token sale through their efforts, a reward varying from 2-5%. This was done via “referral links”. This is classified as income received for work rendered and to the Commissioner it makes it a security (https://www.sec.gov/litigation/admin/2017/33-10445.pdf,  https://www.ssb.texas.gov/news-publications/4-billion-crypto-promoter-ordered-halt-fraudulent-sales, https://www.sec.gov/litigation/investreport/34-81207.pdf)



Are you making a passive income (not referrals)


Another similar attribute that the Commissioner outlines is Bitconnect had a platform Staking program where users held their coins in their QT-wallet. This is Proof of Stake (POS) minting where investors passively receive income by holding the coin in the wallet making a profit. This is deemed an investment and thus a security as the Commissioner points out. The Apollo team is Proof of Stake (POS) offering a Leasing system, or as the team states “forging” generating an income from transactions fees. Are you expecting more GSX or APL by forging or locking away your GSX…this is passive income.

In another example The Securities Commissioner on the 20 Dec 2017 entered an emergency Cease and Desist Order against USI-Tech Limited based in Dubai selling investments tied to bitcoin mining (https://www.ssb.texas.gov/news-publications/4-billion-crypto-promoter-ordered-halt-fraudulent-sales). This was classified as a security due to earning passive income.

Do you like how I compare Bitconnect to Apollo? LOL
So just to some up, good luck with the law if you live in America. Steve knows shit all.


Summary

Apollo’s incursion into Zimbabwe


Apollo Fintech is expected to help launch a resource backed cryptocurrency for Zimbabwe, a country plagued with fiat currency troubles.

According to Apollo Fintech’s various twitter handles, it had entered into an agreement with Zimbabwe’s largest financial services group, CBZ Holdings to develop and implement 3 of the tech firm’s national solutions for the southern African country.

According to Apollo Currency’s twitter feed, Zimbabwe’s CBZ had signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Apollo Fintech.

Premature celebrations?

The news immediately generated excitement within Zimbabwe’s small but vibrant crypto community while the value of APL—the fintech company’s crypto token— also reacted to the news by rising by approximately 20% following the ‘breaking news’.

Interestingly however, CBZ is has not formally acknowledged this and efforts to get a comment from the company’s officials have so far yielded little almost three weeks later (at the time of writing.)

Furthermore, as the news began filtering through, the rumours at CBZ suggested Apollo’s Steve McCullah might have jumped the gun.

A key individual within CBZ Holdings could neither confirm nor deny if indeed an MOU had been signed while another official only commended alert journalists for bringing this (Apollo’s announcement) to the company’s attention and that the group would take things from there. Both individuals refused to be identified at this moment in time.

This lack of clarity about this potentially game changing solution has some crypto enthusiasts worried and matters are not being helped by Apollo’s past reputation.

Allegations of pump and dump

In the past, Apollo Fintech has had to bat away numerous accusations that it is running a crypto scam. Steve McCullah, Apollo’s co-founder has been accused of operating a pump and dump crypto scheme on the African continent.

In general, pump and dump is illegal in countries like the United States and in many other regulated markets. However, since the cryptocurrency market remains largely unregulated, it means this practice can go unpunished. Critics argue that McCullah might be targeting Africa deliberately because he is aware that just a handful of few countries there have the means to expose him.

Furthermore, opponents also cite the botched expedition into the DRC as one episode that exposes McCullah as a con artist.

In Zimbabwe, critics have questioned the approach used by Apollo where McCullah makes big announcements via twitter while nothing is officially announced by the Zimbabwean side. This approach seems to contrary to the usual way of doing things in Harare.

It is almost a Zimbabwean custom, in both the public and private sector, to use lavish and elaborate ceremonies when announcing MOUs or major milestones. In fact, anything that comes with positive media coverage is never delegated to a faceless social media point person.

Furthermore, announcing everything on Twitter is never taken seriously especially when nothing is seen happening ultimately.

Zimbabwe silence

A few weeks prior to the Apollo/CBZ MOU announcement, the crypto and non-crypto community had been given another dose of similar good news. Apparently, an agreement between the Zimbabwean government and an initially unnamed fintech firm was imminent.

The news had coincided with the changed approach towards cryptocurrencies and fintechs by the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ). A few days later Apollo acknowledged—via twitter—that it was the fintech firm in question.

Using the same modus operandi, Apollo has previously announced that it had signed an MOU with the Lesotho government and plans were afoot to sign similar agreements with a host of African countries.

Apollo’s APL token ranks at number 289 while its market capitalization is just under $10 million (at the time of writing) according coinmarketcap.com. The fintech company has have vigorously defended itself and even suggested that allegations that it’s operating a pump and dump scheme could be part of a smear campaign by a jealous competitor.

We do hope this is an opening for crypto into the country as will be a monumentous achievement, especially if ALL the claims made are verified. If not, well, it could cause more set backs for the industry in Zimbabwe.

Either way, until we have confirmation of facts, we will leave you to decide.

The United Allied States is an invisible country, where Steve McCulah is the President (https://uas.govt.agency).
Without looking too far in similar cryptocurrency scams you can take a look at SAFEX, another coin endorsed by John Mcafee.
Daniel Dabek owner of SAFEX is also Liberland Ambassador for Serbia, Daniel and other scammers from Onecoin, Dascoin, Netleaders, & more are promoting their scam in the official Facebook page of the embassy.
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1258419.msg56099244#msg56099244
Seems like those scammers are following the same agenda of scamming innocent people.
Remember when Liberland president was scamming refugees offering them passports for 10k USD.

Apollo will probably do the same & scam poor Africans with fake United Allied States passport.




You nailed it SAFEXSCAM, spot on!


UAS is now charging $3500-$6000 to process applications to join United Allied States. This is a SCAM.

Lesotho Officials not heard from Apollo


A view that is held by one prominent African blockchain entrepreneur and educator who gave his opinion of about ‘shady’ Apollo’s MoU with Lesotho. The expert, who prefers to remain anonymous, says Apollo has not done anything concrete since announcing the MoU with the government of Lesotho in late 2019.

He tells us that Lesotho officials have reportedly not heard from Apollo and consequently, they are now wary of (and less hospitable to) individuals approaching government with proposals that involve or concern the blockchain.

The blockchain educator says he has encountered challenges as he attempted to start his blockchain education initiative in that country. He now blames Apollo’s no show following the MoU for helping to create a negative outlook of the blockchain space in Lesotho.

Steve McCullah being his normal contradictory self, saying one thing, then the opposite. To add to this, he then tells another lie.

Apollo Fintech claims GSX returns of 200%-500% in 2021! <-------- Isn't that illegal for you to offer your investment advice with your own company Steve? Not to mention only scams promote these returns. People bought GSX after reading your shit.






Steve attempts to clear things up:  Can a US citizen buy GSX?:





and then he says....






Is that clear for everyone? LOL Steve is on fire being a LIAR, I expect nothing less.

Steve says there are no refunds if you are a US citizen or not. But if you do buy GSX and are a US citizen there is nothing to worry about- trust Steve, he would never take someones money and not give then what they paid for. He is willing to break the law.

Ummm Steve, so you are happy to help someone break the law. Good on you, no responsibility. Then you take it a step further by stating  "all I can say is that it is not 'illegal' to buy from anywhere".. SORRY TO POP YOUR BUBBLE but YES it is.

You are not a registered security in the US so worse case scenario is a fine or jail time. However according to you "in the worse case if we determine that you were going against the terms and conditions then we would give you a refund. You would never lose your money".

Steve you just lied. Why would you say that? You just said there are no refunds regardless if you are a US citizen. Oh, I know why you contradict everything. Clear as mud?

You are a BIG FAT LIAR.

I seen that scam before with Liberland so i predicted that Apollo will do the same, those scammers copy each other.
Safex is probably the dumbest scam out there, they are proven scammers and they are suing another cryptocurrency for trademark infrigment, the judge that is in charge of the trial is the same judge of the Alphabay case.
This is the Safex thread, they are silent spamming blog posts and not answering any of my allegations.

Safex is a scam - Daniel Dabek is the creator of the scam Dascoin, the Director of the scam Netleaders & the creator of the scam SAFEX
