So, after we busted bataoucheusma for his fake ICO (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5024437.0), he suddenly got 3 positive trusts left to him in the same day, from users hardcod3r, bithashx, and meegaa.

All three of these accounts were bumping this scam with an hour or two of it being posted, as you can see here (Archive: https://archive.is/PmL3C):





Looking back at their previous posts, bithashx posted an ICO for a project called "Bithash" here, which now has a dead website, twitter, telegram and Eth address - another likely scam. Three of these users show up again within minutes of each other to bump the topic as you can see here (Archive: https://archive.is/y5Dhp):





There is also another account bithashp with obviously a very similar name, that was created, made no posts, left bataoucheusma positive trust, and then was never active again.

What do we think? Is this enough evidence to tag these accounts?

I dunno why anyone shudn't tag and put the onus on them for these activities.

Obviously they are in it together, quite possibly alts.

Seems that marlboroza already tagged them. I think it's in the "strong circumstantial" category so I'll pass.

So why haven't you? Too busy spamming your signature?

He must have seen this thread - I hadn't noticed.

Locking.
