INVESTIGATION of SUSPECTED FRAUD    (28/06/18 escalated to SCAM)


Hello EGOLD TEAM

As you should be aware, there are pyramid schemes created by big Telegram’s Airdrop & Bounty advertiser AFFECTING the crypto community.

We are ICOEthics and our mission is to investigate claims and/or abnormalities against people or companies that are creating Fake ICOs and scamming the crypto-community.

We have received complains about your company and during our investigation we found some abnormalities on your ICO/Tokens.

Please explain the following questions:


ABOUT YOUR TEAM

Hello Mr CEO Alex Zerian or should we call you Jacob Bastholm? Confusing..

Here you have one name

Stealing people’s identification is a crime.



This is a VERY SERIOUS issue and we expect an answer within 24 hours before we escalate this to the scam section.




ABOUT WEBSITE/TEAM

Your entire team appears to be fictitious/fake. We verified that they don’t work for you.

They don’t even have a link or association to your Egold website on their professional LinkedIn profile.

We have uncovered and revealed many scams with other websites which contain eerily similar characteristics of your website.

Hello Team,


Thank you for your response, but we cannot accept until you provide further information

Their website wasn't purchased this month like yours, it was purchased and in operation since 2006.


Thank you.

ICOEthics


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1- Please explain your mean of Valid resume
2- Mr. Alex Zerian is EGOLD project founder, not a developer
3- we are on the pre-sale level if we reach our soft cap we introduce our hired developer team about our blockchain
4- we report abuse of www.carnegie.se to their hosting and hope to delete the pictures in next days
5- in next days we change the Mr. Alex Zerian photo with another photo in all social media and listing websites cause of this abuse
6- you are doing a good job announce scam project but one question we check your website and posts but we can not find any personal data about you why you are hidden? can you explain this
For many such things (scam ANN), if the well-known team is not behind it, ultimately leads to extortion

If you carefully check our website, then there are answers to your questions
public contract number on FAQ > Token section (verified by clearify.io and etherscan.io)
Main office of our company in 9th Floor, The Point, 37, North Wharf Road, Paddington, London W2, United Kingdom but we also for some laws limitation have registered branch on Singapore ** everyone can check our legal information and proof of our business on the "What is EGOLD" section (Legal Information , Certificate of incorporation (ACRA) EL EGOLD Pte Ltd ) all of the document and team members Checkable on ARCA website

Hello Team,


Thank you for your response, but we cannot accept until you provide further information

Please provide a CURRENT AND VALID / Resume of:  Alex Zerian CEO & Lead Blockchain, including photos.


Also for your records, that company Carnegie.se is a company from Sweeden.
Their website wasn't purchased this month like yours, it was purchased and in operation since 2006.

Your response providing your CEO identity was NOT accepted.

You used again another image from Mr .Jacob Bastholm (Carnegie.se)

FOR this reason we are escalating this to a SCAM section until you provide valid answers.





1 - Add to your Google translator the meaning of Valid resume:
“is a written compilation of your CEO education, work experience, credentials, and accomplishments”

2 -  Ask your CEO to make a video “denouncing the images used with his face”.

3 -  Whatever you promise is up to the public and investors to believe or not on you. Not us.
Our Job is to ask questions and validate answers based on evidence provided.  In your case no valid evidence were provided about your CEO.

Here is what happened:

You did an update on your web and LinkedIn with a new image but reversing an image horizontally and converting to BW still traceable and track-able. Your trick didn’t work.

Your posted on LinkedIn:

http://icoethics.com/imgs/egold/egoldlink.JPG

and on your web:

http://icoethics.com/imgs/egold/egoldfaketeam.JPG



and here is the original image:


http://icoethics.com/imgs/egold/googlesearch.JPG
http://icoethics.com/imgs/egold/googlesearcg2.JPG

google search:  “Alex Zerian egold” = 1 image which is the one from egold.trade team section.
google search: “Jacob Bastholm Carnegie” = MANY PHOTOS + VIDEOS



5 – We have nothing to hide except our OWN identity to protect ourselves from dangerous organized crimes. Doing this type of investigation is very dangerous and just a fool will let criminals know who he or she is.

AS you saw on our website, WE ARE NOT SELLING ANYTHING, we do it for free. Our job is to catch bad guys to protect our community. We have no public obligation to answer questions or to show our identity.

BUT on the other hand, you are trying to SELL your Tokens to the public. For this reason, you must be investigated if questions are raised by the community and possible investors. A serious question was raised and you have refused to provide a valid answer.

As far as reporting Carnegie.se that is not our business to defend their company, we are sure they have many people on their legal team. Also, they have their website for 12 years. But there is a possibility that those investors that raised questions or the community may have already reported your website, which is less than 1 month old, correct?
Usually, an honest company/ICO buy their website valid for the minimum of 3 years, while scammers just buy the minimum - 1 year.

Carnegie website: Purchased in 2006, will expire in 2022

Egold.info Purchased in June 2018, will expire in June 2019

Look like pure scam. Due to Newbie you are unable to post with image. I will try to post with pic here. I will edit this reply.
Edited : that's enough to say scam that their CEO is fake. That means whole ICO is scam. Stay away from www.egold.trade
Also they bought domain only 2$+ lolz...

The fact that they are stealing identities of others on the internet to build their supposed "team" essentially labels them as a scam straight away. Identity theft is not only inethical and is most likely in breach of some laws worldwide, due to the fact that they are using the stolen identities in an attempt to raise money.

I would definitely consider this to be nothing but a fraud, until they provide an acceptable explanation of why the CEO's name was all of a sudden changed  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

Their logo and site seems to be developed quite cheaply. Domain was acquired a month before they started asking investors for money.

Even if we disregard all of this, their business model is extremely vague and generic. The idea of a stable crypto backed by gold has already been repeated so many times. Even if they do deliver the token to you, from my understanding, you need to believe their claim that they're running a full reserve with gold futures. Virtually no point in holding or buying this token.
