Claiming open & "experienced" team. No linkedin links of course. And i found out team member "Yasemin Gul" has a stock photo
https://www.google.com.tr/imgres?imgurl=https://www.ecole-jean-d-ormesson.fr/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/club-lycee-prive-jean-dormesson-paris.jpg&imgrefurl=https://www.addicted-quiet.men/club-priv%C3%A9-de-r%C3%A9ussite&h=300&w=900&tbnid=zskPrZDTFKBEFM&tbnh=129&tbnw=389&usg=__aeYlt5fTQbUGCO4ayQmO8ugoy24=&hl=tr&docid=qrHhWjbfMdNN5M&itg=1

Of course after that i got banned from their discord server. But i didnt stop and wrote to their ann topic. Guess what happened:

"A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by the starter of a self-moderated topic. There are no rules of self-moderation, so this deletion cannot be appealed. Do not continue posting in this topic if the topic-starter has requested that you leave.

You can create a new topic if you are unsatisfied with this one. If the topic-starter is scamming, post about it in Scam Accusations.

yet another scam looking for selling premine. Claiming open and "experienced" team members. Very generic names that cant be found via google search. No linkedin links of course.
Oh and this Yasemin Gul is a pretty good stock photo

And they deleted Yasemin Gul's photo from website. This time and i look for other members and this time i got ss from website.

Well research. Thanks both of you did good job. Here is clear proof about their fake team. I believe any DT will tag him. I have reported to moderator and tag also. My ANN all reported to moderator about scam with proof is unhandled. So no meaning to report moderator.
Mate keep it up and help forum members.

They also deleted my post lol

I posted this in there:
"Just by reading their ANN it looked like a quick exit scam, reading the comments confirmed it. Thanks guys for posting about it. Don't forget to read: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4600950.0

Total SCAM."

So their entire site is down right now. The ANN thread is still active, however: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4599648.0 (Archived: http://archive.is/omQUt)
Good job to OP and the rest of the people who contributed to exposing this scammer, because it's very likely that they completely abandoned their project by this point because of this scam accusation which revealed their scammy behaviour.

I'd say that most scam projects right now will have used some sort of fake team or whatnot to cover up their tracks, and because they would be completely untrusted if real identities are given.. Legitimate projects will never perform such acts of identity theft.

Always research the project, especially the team behind it, before you put any sum into the ICO as an investment.

The last thing to go was their discord channel. They were selling 10 masternodes, 0.4btc each, hopefully nobody took advantage of this "great offer", even though there were more that 100 people in the channel at that time.
