What happened: Unfortunatley, PORNX is a well made scam! They don't answer in ours emails and there are no updates the lasts 40 days. Many people have lost their money but I don't understand why they didn't bother to make a topic about this. I have already informed FTC and SEC about this project and the participants  - inside (PORN_coin member, etc.) and outside(team members, advisors who promote it etc.) of this forum - as 'Suspected Security Fraud or Wrongdoing'. They are aware of the situation since the 8th of July. Progress has be made so now I can speak publicly. Although I have discovered this fraud, PORN_coin member is still uses his account in this forum nearly every day! Community must be causious about this person!
I'm open to personal messages from people that they want to help me or learn more details. I will keep you informed.

[UPDATE 21/7]
I have already contacted a lawyer and as he advised me I sent an email to the only one verified person that promoted this scam project named 'Marcello
Milteer'. Here is what I have writed to him:


""Hello,
My name is ***** and I am an early investor of PORNX ICO. Unfortunately, this project is a well made scam and you have participated in it, although you worked as an advisor. Acording to their site: https://porn-x.com/  https://pornx-official.com (moved their domain) you promoted this project and you said that you are very excited about this' etc. People including me trust your reputation and invest in this project. As a result, I have lost 1k dollars in this fraud. You may think that this is a small amount of money but for me is a month salary. I want to inform you that I have already informed FTC and SEC about this project and the participants of it(team members, advisors who promote it etc.) as 'Suspected Security Fraud or Wrongdoing'. They are aware of the situation since the 8th of July. Progress has be made so now I can speak publicly. I have contacted a lawyer and I want to inform you that -for now- you (Marcello Milteer) are the only person we have confirmed you identity. I am preparing a legal remorse for you and acoarding to my lauyer I can accuse you because you promoted frauds by taking advantage of your reputation. I will not withdraw prosecution until I get my money back from you or generally from someone involved in this project.""


On comming days I hope to find other members who have involed in this well-made scam

[UPDATE 23/7]
I have already contacted icobench.com, coincodex.com and altcointoday.com about this scam that theυ had promoted in the past. Until now, none of the three answered me.

[UPDATE 26/7] Marcello Milteer, advisor of PORNX project answered my email!

"Hey *****,

Sorry about responding late. I emphathize with you. I really do, but please don't come at me like I am a criminal. I want to assure you that I only had one encounter with the Porn-X team, to make a video read from a script to receive PORN tokens. At the time I thought they were legit because they were using the lightening betwork. I hadn't kept up with the project since the time I made that video in Feb. and learned it was a scam (I assume it is a scam because the team disappeared). I am writing you back to let you know that some team members are hired. They don’t own the project and the funds don’t go into their pocket. I want to raise this point so that in this situation, I'd like to co-operate with you to uncover the real perpetrators. I will try to reach out to the team to get any updates and relay back to you. But I have no affiliation with this project and received no money. I'm sorry you fell for a scam. I fell for it too. I am working with YouTube to remove my endorsement because hey used my name ad face without permission. I am also advising a few other projects and you really don't know if everyone has the best intentions. I hoping the ICO scams came to a halt soon. Let me know if there is anything else I can do for you, but s someone who isn't associated with the project,there isn't much I can do for you."

As you can see, he admits that this project is a scam and they fooled him! From his email I undersand that after September, he didn't even bother to check if this project is active. From the other side, PORNX team update their telegram group the last 3 days as one member of this forum informed me.

[UPDATE 30/7] Last 12 hours I see some activity: https://etherscan.io/token/0xdc58e0e4d613a56edd6bd4dd095eaa1bed645889

[UPDATE 3/8] SEC has yesterday sent me an email telling that my report for 'Suspected Security Fraud or Wrongdoing' is under investigation. Good news

[UPDATE 5/8] Proof of my accusations:
Look Damian Lerner photos on Linkedin and Pornx site. Seriously, how we get scamed from these a***oles? They didn't bother to add the same person's picture.



[UPDATE 11/8] I'm preparing a lawsuit and I sent an email to Marcello Milteer, Pornx advisor about some information I need from him. Here is what I wrote:

Hello,
 
***** again, early investor of PORNX, etc. As I have informed you in a previous email I'm preparing a lawsuit but I need more information about you. As I can see in your Linkedin Profile you live in Austin, is this true? I'm asking because as my lawyer informed me every state in America has a statute setting time limits for when you can file certain types of cases. Marcello Milteer is your legal name? Of course once I file my lawsuit, I will give you legal notice as you are the defendant.
 
Thank you

[UPDATE 13/8] I sent second notice to Marcello Milteer, PORNX advisor about the lawsuit I'm preparing for him. He does not yet answer me.

[UPDATE 16/8] I sent third notice to Marcello Milteer, PORNX advisor about the lawsuit I'm preparing for him. He does not yet answer me. I wil start sharing my story with the media (ccn, cointelegraph, altcointoday, cryptonewsasia, cryptopotato, cryptovest etc). Meanwhile I want to inform you that pornx site is down!

[UPDATE 17/8] Cryptopotato ask me to describe them my story briefly.

[UPDATE 19/8] New domain for our scam!!! https://porn-x.com/  https://pornx-official.com

Additional Notes: [UPDATE 12/8] Today I will show you how scammers are trying to manipulate this topic and I'm sure they are trying the same with other conversations. As you can see below I'm looking topic: [AIRDROP][BOUNTY] ⚡️ PORNX PRE-SALE solutions based on Lightning network⚡️ and more specific this two members (page 182):



As you can see they are both online the second one answer almost immediately, and they have nearly the same activity. Let's take a look at their profiles.... Check their posts:
"Proof-of-Authentication:"
"Join Telegram"
"Join twitter"
"Join facebook"
"Join Youtube Channel"
"Can a newbie participate in a bounty?"
"when distribution for bounty?"


As you can see on your own they both have the same style of writing and they use the same phrases (probably they copy-paste them and change a few things). So what they are trying to do? They are encouraging people to look pornx's telegram profile and persuade them that this project is still active. BE CAREFULL !!!!

To be easier, do the following:  Scam Report Format (Use it to make scam reports properly)

Scam report example:

What happened::
I saw escrow.ms's lolipop thread 4 days ago and placed a order for 1000 lolipops. After I sent him payment, he just went offline and never came back. I think he's a big liar and a scam artist. Stay away from him.

In recent months and due to the lack of regulation of the ICOs, many people have seen the ICOs as a way to become millionaires, these people appear here in the forum, create an ANN Thread and post things nonsense and ask people to invest millions of dollars ... but if we look carefully at the profile of each team member we will realize that they did not even know about cryptos until a few months ago, they do not even have some license or even some functional product ... Their curriculum is often questionable. We need to be vigilant, watchful, and investigate each of these ICOs.

I was very surprised by this, it was very difficult to distinguish the ico project that would be a scam.

At the beginning "launch ico pornx that will be as successful as its predecessor spank, and what happened today?

Very sad story.
