You could go to the scam accusation section of the forum and compile a report. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=83.0

That's only as far as bitcoin goes but other than that notifying other communities would be useful as well. Like reddit crypto communities for example. Other than that, potentially notify sites that list the ICO that it scammed.

I mean more serious complaint . For example can I complaint to SEC ? from this link : https://acadia.sec.gov/TcrWeb/faces/pages/disclaimer.jspx?_afrLoop=3693275066758894&_afrWindowMode=0&_afrWindowId=1bt9xbttjt_1#!%40%40%3F_afrWindowId%3D1bt9xbttjt_1%26_afrLoop%3D3693275066758894%26_afrWindowMode%3D0%26_adf.ctrl-state%3D1bt9xbttjt_14

My english not very good so I am not sure this link for this.

It really depends on your jurisdiction and on the jurisdiction of the ICO in question.

It also depends on their claims, if the token can be classified as the security, were there any future gains claims etc.

For example, if you are a US resident or the ICO is a US company, then there is a way with SEC: https://www.sec.gov/reportspubs/investor-publications/complaintshtml.html
and, in some cases, you can address it to FINRA: http://www.finra.org/investors/investor-complaint-center

You can also try this guide: http://theshareholderactivist.com/shareholder-policies-investor-regulations/how-to-file-complaints-and-report-fraud-to-the-sec/

In UK, in case of any tipe of financial related fraud, you shall address FCA: https://www.fca.org.uk/consumers/report-scam-unauthorised-firm

In Australia it is ASIC: http://asic.gov.au/about-asic/contact-us/how-to-complain/

In Canada there is a FAIR, yet they are not known for being too effective: https://faircanada.ca/investor-resources/consumer-investment-complaints-guide/

In general, any fraud (including the ICO fraud) is a fraud in a broad meaning and can be addressed by the police. You can check the following Quora thread to find the answer, best suiting your case: https://www.quora.com/How-can-I-complaint-online-against-any-fraud-company

If you tell me, where are you from, I may help you to find the right place to make your claim.

Information is something turning me on. It'd better be genuine, beautiful and integral.

You are welcome. Let me know if you need any more detail consultation or other assistance.


In regard of the avatar: I was at this forum long before all that merit system and activity scores, and back than avatar was a basic good for everyone. Actually, I'm almost 6 years in, but I mostly read and post very rarely.

Information is something turning me on. It'd better be genuine, beautiful and integral.

Mention it now so that we could know about it and spread the word...you can as well contact Websites that rate ICOs like ICOdrops, ICObench, ICOtracking, crownandsmith and many more not to list it, some youtubers like Ian Balina also review and advise on projects...we can keep fighting them in many ways including that

I think you have to have some solid proof to accuse anyone of anything. Sorry but "I think" doesn't mean much, what are your thoughts based on?
