What happened: BitHFT use the fake team member information.

Scammers Profile Link: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1942048
Bitcointalk username: BitHFT

Reference Link:
Website: https://bithft.io
Bounty campaign thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5004392

Proofs:

Look at their team on their website https://bithft.io



Link to Rajesh (Ron) Pandit LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/in/ronald-pandit/



And LinkedIn of real person in this picture: https://www.linkedin.com/in/pranav-khanna-1259761/



I checked "Rajesh (Ron) Pandit" company which he was a member before: SolarFlare

https://www.linkedin.com/company/solarflare-communications/

http://www.solarflare.com/

And look at their team:


http://www.solarflare.com/corporate-overview-leadership#Management

Then I checked Pranav Khanna (Im sorry for calling his name, so I will use PK to replace his full name)

Capital One company:
https://www.linkedin.com/company/capital-one/
https://www.capitalone.com/


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_One

Then I found the information of PK:

He is a VP Product Management & Analytics of Capital One company.

His information in GrowthHackers Conference:


https://growthhackers.com/conference

This is Medium blog of GrowthHackers: https://blog.growthhackers.com/

An article about Capital One team joined this conference and mention to PK:



https://blog.growthhackers.com/building-a-cross-functional-growth-team-at-capital-one-5df93d39b1ee

This is Twitter of PK: https://twitter.com/khannapranav




These are pictures from 2 LinkedIn:
"Rajesh (Ron) Pandit"


PK


To make sure this is one person, flip horizontal "Rajesh (Ron) Pandit" image and check it



"Rajesh (Ron) Pandit" image was edited by photoshop. Look at his glasses, you will see it just a sticker.

Additional Notes: I think that's enough to claim BitHFT is a scam ICO.

Good job catching this scam. Scammers are using apps to add eyeglasses/sunglasses, hats, hair, facial hair, makeup, etc, but face recognition software and a good eye still able to find them.

If you can please add that cartoon to our cartoon post: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4986549.0
