Now that most of the people are well aware of scam ICOs, scammer has found another way to scam people. I have observed 3 projects till now which I will list here and give you a highlights how they scam people, specially the newbie.

1. Privcy
Privacy was a free airdropped coin which was distributed freely over the community for helping promoting the project. Later, they decide to reward more to the holder of the coin in airdrops. The more coin you hold, the more airdrop coin you get. Newbies started to buy coins for getting more airdrop coin and DEV were selling their coin. I am sure they had a lot of fake accounts participating in the Airdrop. Can you believe they scammed people in such a way? Now, the project is died, 24 hour volume is- $620 which was less than $100 couple of weeks ago.

2. Profish
Profish was an ICO which came into the exchange before the bounty end. They were listed in mercatox and used to have some fake volumes. I don't know what happened to their ICO but they sold a lot of coins through mercatox and later, the price is now 1 or 2 satoshi from 650 satoshi. This is also a dead project. They scammed people.

3. Helios Protocol- Be aware
Helios Protocol is now airdropping coin to their community. This attract my eyes when I see user vectisitch was vouching the project. He was a moderator in privcy, so, there's no doubt that both of the project are from same person and this helios shit is also going to scam money. I want to alert you guys not to invest in this scam project.
Here is the vouching comment- https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5118682.msg50087444#msg50087444

So, if what you mean is people scam by the dev team; maybe you can add this too:

- abulaba token, bitcointalk forum ANN: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3348816.0 ;
- vaynix ATM, bitcointalk forum ANN: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3239397.0
- etc

I think there're hundreds of scam ICO's that you can read their announcement in this forum.
Forum Admin, staff and moderators do not moderate the ANN ICO thread, because their position must be on the neutral side.

So forum users must be smart in choosing which ICO platform they must choose to invest or be promoted in social media.

Thanks for the heads up mate,  I think I have seen this method of scam before until you brought it into the light.  This guys are relentless and will do anything to scam people. Everyone needs to be careful on the kind of project they join or promote.

Entering the market of ordinary investments, the investor has the opportunity to check the company in the new market yet, so you have to be careful not to invest a large amount for you. And not to regret about participation, if you have lost. I say, "thank you for the money", because I hold this opinion: if I am destined to earn here, it will happen, if not, then ........ But I'm in

I think with what's been going around us for over a year people already know that scams are very eager to scam us all, even projects that looks too good to be true can turn to scam and escape our radar, just take a look at Resto after distributing tokens their devs are nowhere to be found.

At first I thought this is a redundant topic but thanks I read it all and I now have the idea of the new method scammers are using now. Well, scammers are also smart people that they are able to figure this scheme out. But, what if vectisitch is also a victim here?

Thank you for this thread. This is true, most projects nowadays are scam. They are always finding new ways of scamming people. It's really sad that the moderators here are also supporting something dirty like this.

This is very fantastic post. You are really fighting corruption and such signals will aid to light off the scam ICO project and when this continues at no time there will be sanity in the ico project.

Thanks for the link, it's a useful thread to link down all the scam ICO caught by ICOEthics, Feb 2019 already found 33 scam project, yeah make sure to check the Scam Accusations before promote or investing ICO, I think we can't caught all the scam, but at least investor and bounty participants can reduce the chance of being cheated.

Thanks for bringing up here these kinds of information dude, it's very helpful because there are some new in crypto that might be a fool at them. Recently there are a bunch of scams coins out there or probably abandoned by the dev. And yes luckily we have an eagle eye here and catching a ton of scam projects, great work to ICOEthics.

Unfortunately the Mercatox Exchange is working in very ugly ways. They are helping the scammers and many people know about it. I think there would be some punishments for that Exchange. There is a finished ICO project which is Athero, they seems to complate the ICO with $20 millions and their coin THO start exchanign in Mercadox. They made a big fake volume and after 20 days (today) there is no buyer left. So i believe that the THO coin will fade with the help of the Mercatox!

Helios is not a scam project from what I can see. I know it a little bit because it is one of the liquidity programs I have been following since last year. I think the specific person you are talking about could be a scammer,,, but this does not automatically mean the project itself is one.

If someone tricks you with Bitcoin, for example, does it make Bitcoin a scam? Of course not, right?

Of course,,, what you say is good to watch out for. Nothing is free that is good in this world of crypto Wink

Very good analysis, indeed we have to believe that most ICOs are frauds that they use cunning strategies to get big profits in various ways, we have to admit that they are very good with wild marketing schemes so they can attract most people around the world, Thank you for sharing here, but this is no secret, it has been happening in the last few years, now the culmination of problems and unfortunately some of us do not understand everything we have shared here, do not let everything repeat because of ignorance.

Profish has not been clarified. And in my opinion, they are too complicated because until now all participants have not received tokens. We really need to be careful when working on the Bounty project. Thank you for your analysis and I think this is very useful.
