What happened: Whitepaper = BLATANT PLAGIARISM + Stealing people's identity = SCAM

Scammers Profile Link: They are not listed on this forum. But if you see them please let us know.

Website: https://tourismcoin.icu/

It appears that team members are NOT associated with this project since ALL of them (including CEO) doesnt have anything about this project on their Linkedin profile.
We sent messages and we are waiting for their reply. (EDITED) - received confirmation - not team member

1st confirmation: not team member



it appears that the scammer got the images/names from here as Devina mentioned: https://www.blockchaineconomy.istanbul/EN/speakers.html


Whitepaper: https://tourismcoin.icu/doc/whitepaper_v1.1_t.pdf
archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20190311185805/https://tourismcoin.icu/doc/whitepaper_v1.1_t.pdf

Their whitepaper was copied from LockChain project: https://icotokn.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/LockChain_whitepaper.pdf

Their website is new (22 days)- https://hypestat.com/info/tourismcoin.icu
while the LockChain website is much older (+4 years) -https://hypestat.com/info/locktrip.com




There are 44 pages of copy and paste on their whitepaper (all plagiarized). Here are some examples:









You can see a few more pages here,  or you can also download and compare the papers - it is almost identical.
