I also invest a lot if scams, its because im new at crypto that time but now I know if the ICO legit or not. I am also asking for assistance to others to be sure also. But even seems legit if the project fails then it will be scam. Lets keep in mind to invest money you can afford to lose.

The best way is to keep scummer list (btw there is still no united list for all scummers with names etc) and ofc try to attach police attention, because scummers must be in a jail.

I've fallen into some scams before but that only happened for few times and I'd learned from those.

This is my advise to everyone especially to the newbies/beginners in the crypto market. We tend to look for a way to make more money and the only way to do that is to have various investments that we can involved with. That's right but before investing, take time and do research on where you are putting your money, familiarize yourself to that field.

You can't do anything about it. In any sphere connected with money there are and always will be scammers.
You need to take responsibility for your own safety and don't invest in those projects in which you have a doubt.

Here's the trick... look for REVERSE-ICOs. Reverse ICOs are businesses introducing a token into their existing business ecosystem.

That means they have existing revenue streams, customers and infrastructure to deploy their token into. This means they can accept fiat during their token sale and don't have a complete dependence on funds raised to get their projects off the ground.

This article provides a good overview of the concept.

I think the current scam ICO should be an important reason for the bear market. Their scam project defrauded people's investment, making those real projects unable to get enough investment, and the worst part is that because of the large number of scammers, people are no longer I believe in ICO again.

We need to be cautious to be able to avoid scammers. The first rule is to read the project thoroughly and carefully. And the second thing to do is to see the number of experts in the team. And lastly, never disclose any personal information online.

Now ICO projects are very much, so want to invest you need to find out thoroughly. Phishing projects often make bold claims about the product, even if the project is not new and breakthrough. Obviously, a blockchain or a digital money platform cannot afford to put an end to poverty, tackle global warming or replace the internet. If someone pledged his digital currency to replace Bitcoin, owning an incredible number of users or worth 100 times more, then it would certainly be a fraudulent project.

The best way to stay safe right now is not to buy into any ICO.

If you like the project, wait for it to hit exchange before you buy.

Funny enough, in this bear market, you'll even get it cheaper than the ico price when it reaches exchange.
That's the new trend.

I have experienced this too, buying tokens in their crowdsale, after I looked at the dev and whitepaper profiles on their website, I felt interested and invested a few, unfortunately after launching, their tokens nothing have value in the market.
I think they also manipulate data on their website when updating the number of sales tokens, as if many people have already bought it and made us believe.

As a bounty hunter, I often encounter false bounty missions. This is very normal. I am also disappointed with the current mission and airdrop!

In fact, everything in the world have a fraud, not just in the crypto.
What do we do with them?

Aside from avoiding them the other thing you can do is to report this scammers in order to avoid other people from being one of the victims. Knowing yourself what the scams are is a good thing but reporting them and warning others is the best option. Keeping one away from the streets will mean a lot of people will be save from their dark schemes. Also you never want to participate in any of thos scams as there is absolutely no return from this kinds of imvestment opportunity.

One good ico covers 5 bad ones. You do not need all the capital to invest in ico. Let's say you have 10,000 dollars.  2-4к take for ico.

I have been cheated by ICO, and I have now given up on investing in any ICO project, because even a seemingly perfect ICO project can be a scam!

The easiest way to recognize them is to do research. but first you should consult those people who have encountered such frauds. this can be very useful.
You are right, but it really difficult to recognised them if you refuse to do research my question is where can we do research about them because I check this forum but I can really see any thing like that.
