What happened: Fake airdrop of non-existent forked coin probably a phishing attempt.

A. NON-EXISTENT FORK COIN

According to official information from Ethereum.org
It does not mention anywhere that there will be a new blockchain a result of Constantinople Fork. It only talks about an Ethereum network upgrade.

Quote
As an Ethereum user or ether holder is there anything I need to do?
If you use an exchange (such as Coinbase, Kraken, or Binance), a web wallet service (such as Metamask, MyCrypto, or MyEtherWallet), a mobile wallet service (such as Coinbase Wallet, Status.im, or Trust Wallet), or a hardware wallet (such as Ledger, Trezor, or KeepKey) you do not need to do anything unless you are informed to take additional steps by your exchange or wallet service.

B. PHISHING WALLET

The so called Constantinople wallet's User Interface is an exact copy of the old MEW with minor changes.

OLD MEW



Constantinople Web Wallet



When asked why the wallet was similar to old mew, this was his response;

We used open source MEW.

I didn't buy it.

C. GITHUB ACCOUNT

It was created only 7 hours ago, Long after the fork which has been discussed for months.

Additonal Notes

1. The web wallet was probably created to trick users into claiming the non-existent Constantinople airdrop while phishing their private keys and key store encryption keys
2. The software wallet provided could most probably a malware.

the fact that he is a Copper Member means that he is a member who knows the forum very well and has created a new account to steal other people's coins, Thread has already been deleted

Looks like someone has a farm of accounts and has a long history of creating fake fork wallets to scam people
This account is definitely involved Willderk, https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1962196.
It's no coincidence that it only posts in fake fork coin wallet threads
http://Https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5099212.msg49452886#msg49452886

Hopefully it gets painted red along with the others.

I tagged eth_constantinople clearly this is just another scam and phishing attempt from scammers, using the network name and claiming that they are a new forked coin related to Ethereum is what raised the red flags for me. I will also be tagging Alysek after writing this post as he has been shilling for Ethereum Constantinople and providing the links of the website on some of his post.

It was a great idea to make Constantinople!

Good work Theb.

This 2 particular profiles are also mostly likely the scammer's alts if you look at their post histories, they have been in every scam thread of theirs bumping it and posting that it's not scam.

1. madlen2018 >>>> Post History

Constantinople isnot fork, its only update, without new coin ! ! !

and what the hell is this?

SCAM !
Not Scam

Another scam for Ethereum Fork ? If people still trust with this fork scam method then the user was really idiot. Will i going to put my private key with non trust source, Of course not.
I used windows jack, everything worked

2. Willderk >>>> Post History

SCAM ALERT ⚠️

This is a phishing attempt, there is NO official Constantinople Airdrop
Read Here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5115596.0
I don't think so, all wallets work fine, I tried

Anybody who can, please tag them too.

I don't think that they are, they both joined bounty campaigns before they have posted shit about Ethereum Constantinople. They might just be two dumbasses believing that Constatinople network is a fork of Ethereum  Grin. So I won't be tagging them as it still lacks evidence that they are directly connected to the scam unlike the case of Alysek which consistently shill the project and provide links of the website every time he replies, they might just have been easily fooled from the scam project believing it was a real fork.

If you closely look through their post histories they were purposely joining scam fork bounties so us to create confidence and make other people join.
Good thing is @Hellmouth42 has put a stop to their scam games by tagging both of them as they were clearly promoting scam even after clear warnings.
