Well catch. Look like they also using bumping service. Lot of newbie account replying there. I have reported some of them. I am not sure they will ban or what. As far as I know perhaps need 3 report. I think it's a well planed scam attempt. Domain age only 7 day & after 4 days will start crowdsale  Huh How is that possible.

yeah they are using newbie account to hide scam post on their ANN thread. Anyone can guess what's their plan now. Its high time to take action against them. I have already posted all proof of their fake team but some newbie accounts trying to hide my post there by making instant reply.  Only 4 days remain to start their crowdsale. Shocked

I can't conclude it's scam, check their white paper they talked about being annonymous , you should contact them on telegram to know what is really happening , probably work is being done on the site, it's just 7 days old , if not most trusted pages won't promote them , deltachain , Pokemongo all used a fake team and all got investors good money, this is crypto nobody cares anymore about team, just make profit

You are completely wrong about this... Nobody used to care about a team, but after so many scams, people now want to know who is behind an ICO project.

FAKE TEAM = SCAM

What about so many projects that have used fake pictures and are doing well, deltachain, eship, Daneel ,pkg for example

Besides one of them is from BTK marketing team, do you think such person will jeopardize his position with working project to work with an upcoming project if they are scam?!

Many people use fake team just to get approval by some exchange, it may never be for intention to scam

hey friend, I am not agree with your thinking. people always care about legal ICO project. without genuine team you can't say an ICO is real. Its simple when a ICO project use fake team they got worse plan on their mind. For your kind information exchange always find project legality & strong community to listed them on their exchanges.

Well I have took part in many airdrop programs, and many of us didn't actually care, Because we deal with everything because it's a gamble, invest in lending platforms, invest in many airdrops that have scam us and while some called scam have done so well and people make money from it, and in today's crypto nobody cares anymore except for just envious people who think they can decide for you where to put your money,

People may stop using the forum if you keep bring up informations that may eventually be wrong.

You made me miss out on some investment when you call them scam but eventually people made money from them,  everything is worth taking a risk

Bitcoin never hard a team, who knows if they gave us a fake name satoshi nakamoto, but we all blindly buy we faith, and believe someone out there won't dump bitcoin on us someday, who knows the reason why btc fell from 20k$ to 7000$ , probably a dump on us.

A lot of exchange or review site don't care anymore, because you don't judge a book by its cover anymore, everything is unpredictable

I didn't buy deltachain because of a fake team, same with Pokemon go

Now I could have made x100 return, but I was thinking I know it all.

It's sad but it's the truth, where's fresco today??  Electroneum??  Even the legitimate projects are failing us, everybody buy whatever they like these days.

All I am saying is that we have no proof of anything unless you know the team personally, you don't know their intentions,  being realistic now countless of project use fake team now to get on some exchange, while some exchange don't even care about your team

What happened to savedroid ICO??  Thought they had a team,  but they scam everyone, what happened with bitconnect they had a team, have an office and still scam everyone,

So every opinion these days are just assumptions and not facts, until it happens there are just opinions..


 Embarrassed

bullshit

Let me save you the time you're wasting here by posting all these fallacies. Fake team == scam, no ifs or buts about it. A scam is a dishonest, deceptive, fraudulent scheme, and knowingly publishing fake pictures and/or names is about as deceptive as it gets. There, now you can go do something useful.

Great finds, OP. Even though the rest of the team are not exposed as fake yet, I would bet my money on all of them being fake. Especially the project advisor, whose pic seems to be fresh off some random guy's social media profile pic.

Also ironic how the woman they used was an "intellectual property expert". Lol.

The fact that you're trying to defend them is ridiculous.

It's not like we don't know what they're intending to do - they're intending to steal people's money by posting a fake team on their site to gain some legitimacy and recognition as if they are actually a viable investment opportunity.

All, and I mean all ICOs who use fake profiles as their team, are guaranteed to be scams. A legitimate project simply would not

You're right with that bro, just that for so long I have been participating in airdrops, I have team has now being a less concern for me. Made lot of money from so many that even used fake team , because we found out about this ones doesn't mean there are not many out there using fake team and are doing well, it's people choice anyway,  they were warned about bit connect but they still went ahead and invest, it's like many don't care any more, and when it comes to ERC20 projects, so many shitcoins are flooding the market,  crowdsale ,ico or self drop they all call it

They removed the fake profiles that got "caught" and replaced them with new fake team members.

Thanks everyone except that newbie trying to defend fake teams. This is the major thing we are trying to clean the crypto community of.

Just to be sure, the moment I saw the picture of the third person on the right with googles, I knew another scam has emerged. That man looks like a Nigerian, wearing a Chinese name "John Cheng".

That newbie account above postulated foolish claims just to tell you how he is wired. First, he's on the blockchain strictly to root money, second, he doesn't care from where or how the money comes. The fact that you participate in airdrops and grow their community does not mean you won't be concerned if the project was a scam.

When ICOs are bought by investors as a result of your actions that grew that scam project by helping grow the community, you also contributed to the scam indirectly.

The reason this space has a lot of disrepute is because of scammers and fraudulent actions which comprises over 50% of everything on the blockchain and instead of doing your bit to rid this space of as many dirt as possible, you're busy defending the project and in fact even made mention of projects like PKG and BTK, heaping praises on the team, it shows how you are configured, so you think those scam projects are doing well because they are still listed on exchanges, well I don't blame you entirely, I blame the exchanges who are more profit driven than value driven, go and see how much profit they end up with, compared to other exchanges who are value driven and checks well before listing like Binance and of late Bittrex, others doing well also have their parameters. I know also that some exchanges does have fake daily volumes just to maintain a high profile, but check to see and you'll find out that almost every reasonable exchange that also wants to last deep into the future are hitting hard on KYCs for both the traders and the projects listed.
