with the number of scammers in the bounty program, of course, it will hurt the participants who are honest in participating in a bounty and I see project managers now anticipating it by requiring bounty participants to verify KYC before accepting their rewards and I think this is enough to reduce scammers this time.

There are some things that are almost above our power, truth is this issue is leaving bounty hunters with a bad name, but the best thing I think is for legit hunters to keep doing their legit hunting jobs. Kyc is also a very good way to curb this scammers out.

Because bounty managers are not moderated, only tag from DT members is not enough,...

Let try to get a red trust with comment "Cheating bounty with alts account" and you will know what effect of work that DTs are doing.

so when theymos still doesn't want to control this, it still happens.

Actually, this name of forum is Bitcointalk, not Bountytalk. Even Altcoin section just appeared in few years ago. And Bounties is a child board of Altcoin section, it is as a sub-part of Bitcointalk forum. If theymos and his team decide to excute Bounties section, Bitcointalk will be still alive.
You sound like a scam account trying to stop the word from getting out!!

Your solutions are not necessarily the best. I think that bounties are scammed by some people and managers do not want that. So the way to find a good and excellent project, we should look for the actual project. Projects can bring in revenue and produce products for everyone. That is a good project.

This is very scary, such as artificial intelligence robots? If this is the case, the forum may disappear a large number of users within one to two years. Such illegal actions should be rejected. This is frightening.

I hope this was helpful...

Day by day hackers, scammers, and fraudulent people are going to take easy money, they do not make a hardwork but instead they will victimized people out of ignorance and that's what they wanted, to make money easy by scam. So guys, we should be aware at all times. And so we hope that fraudulent people gets banned automatically, and also the bounty that are scam should be reported and banned.

Thanks for the good advice. In the future, i will pay more attention to whether everything goes right on the bountie. Thought so far, the bountie manager pay more attention to this problems.

I agree with your observation especially on telegram bots. I also see similar patterns of bot accounts. The latest I observed are English and Russian nicknames with some made up username (e.g. sdfuinsdi). They just kept coming everyday. This is probably the reason why some campaign managers do not check them well because it is really time consuming.

The bounty sector is in shambles. Thousands of bounties ongoing right now and most of them are being managed by junior level members. There are members who manage dozens of bounties simultaneously and I don't think that these people have enough time available to screen out the scammers.

That's why KYC implemented to see hoe cheaters can pass this requirement. I think their only targeting some projects without KYC, so I suggest bounty managers should not announced KYC at first then surprise them at the end when campaign is over to conduct KYC.
Yes, I agree!! Then we some teams start KYC after finding fraud, they use their fake accounts to complain and make it look like the real community doesn’t like KYC.

Scamming bounties has become a new source of income for organized groups of scammers. Groups with developers on their payroll are using software to create thousands of bots and dumping them in airdrop bounty to collect 100’s of thousands of dollars in bounty tokens. Airdrops may not seem like much, but when you have 20K fake accounts receiving 10-20 tokens, it’s a huge payoff.
It would be good if you have evidence and share the link. We can't deny the fact that it indeed exist so i hope that this will be put to a stop.

To the admins
1. Check everyone who enters the bounty.
2. Updates stakes frequently so scammers know you are watching.
2. Don’t be lazy, put in the work...
The bounty administrator were being paid to do their job but sad to say that some of them were involve in this kind of scam because of greed.

BCT member rank has nothing to do with it. Just because someone started a BCT account recently doesn’t mean they don’t understand cryptos or marketing. I think no project should trust anyone controling their ANA, because the members who controls it can blackmail them by denying access. Put more thought into things...

actually sad that something like this bountie participants noticed and the manager, however, do nothing. they are actually well paid to prevent such scam methods. perhaps the bountie operators should look the manager more on the finger. Wink

Yes, I think this situation is becoming more frequent. That's why many bounty campaigns must require participants to do KYC before receiving rewards.
In my opinion, actually the KYC system applied to bounty campaigns also has a big impact to reduce the risk of people who want to cheat like that.

many projects turned out to be fraudsters, with them offering prizes with a large allocation for bounty hunters, and it turned out that in the end the project didn't pay for it. indeed in choosing a project we cannot determine which projects are truly responsible, because this year is very difficult

It really gives me concern when I see many scammers in every spreadsheet I checked and funny involve the manger will award stake to them when it's clear that they are scam, which show that most of the manager are lazy or should we say they also know about it and maybe the culprit too, cos I have seen a group where a guy complain about duplicate account and the manager didn't do anything to it, it happen mostly in fb, two and Reddit even in signature , I think the scam btt account need to be reported to moderator here to get ban.

It is easy to detect the fake entries but the campaign managers are lazy, or they don't want to do it. Because bounty managers are not moderated, only tag from DT members is not enough, so when theymos still doesn't want to control this, it still happens.
I don't think so because not all bounty managers are lazy to check every entry. I can also understand if they cannot carry out their duties at any time because you can imagine it yourself if there are many participants participating in the project even reaching up to 2000 people who participate and and this is only just at social media campaigns, not yet another campaign that still has to be calculated. So I think we must not judge, like saying that the bounty manager is all lazy, because that is not true.

The best step is if you find suspicious activity from someone, immediately report it to the bounty manager. Don't be afraid that you will be ignored. It's better if you try to report it instead of allowing cheating people to get the token reward. I believe that there are still many bounty managers who are professional and responsive to things like this.

That's why I don't join on those campaign with a low rank campaign manager or even a copper member with a low rank. I usually join on campaign with at least senior rank btt account. And Yes, sometimes the bounty manager or the campaign manager is also a victim for such a long period of time. This crypto community is composed of different kind of mind ( people ) but always keep on your mind that more of us want money and money and money than a project.
