COLLECTION OF GUIDES ON IDENTIFY AND AVOID SCAM PROJECTS



Translations:



Welcome to my collection.

In reality, investments into scam projects usually result in big losses or even totally losses of all capital if price fall into nearly zero and if investors don't determinantly enough to get out when they see bad signals of scam projects.
If they made decisions too late, they might don't have chances to get out and get back small part of their capital.
Therefore, it is the best if investors can prepare their knowledge well enough to avoid making wrong decisions to invest in scam projects.
Today, I show crypto newbies my collection on guides published by forum users to help both identifying and avoiding scam projects.
Those topics and websites should be considered as unofficialy prerequisite courses for crypto newbies.
They should read them all carefully to catch ideas, knowledge, and practice those skills for their future fortune in crypto.

Nice compilation and always recommended for Newbies (or even experienced Members) to check them out. After money is lost it's not possible to get it back again and people are regretting their lack of knowledge in regards of scams.
Educating yourself before you get scammed is always better, there is no need to learn it the hard way.  Tongue



I have another topic that could fit very well on your list, it's about cloudmining and how to detect fraudulent cloudminers (complete scams / fractional reserve mining) : Cloudmining 101 (ponzi risk assessment). It's already more than 4 years old but does a very good job in teaching risks of cloudmining.

And maybe you want also to list my topic about MLM: MLM – a dangerous marketing strategy

I added it in the collection. @Coolcryptovator tends to help crypto users to minimize losses from scam project investments.
I appreciate your contributions as well as Coolcryptovator's.
Moreover, I checked your post history, it looks good enough to say that you are not a shit poster.
So, as a small reward for your contribution, you successfully stolen my 1 sMerit.
Congrats, my friend.
Edited:
I did not check carefully at the first time, and later I found that the topic you posted already in the OP.
It's my bad, anyway, your post history shows you deserve the one sMerit from me.
The one is my most favorite one when I checked your post history.

Very important to save your investment in crypto. This is a new field and users have very little knowledge so the users can be easily scammed.

Can you check if you able to fit the below post also.

7 Ways to Spot a Scam ICO

I have not a lot of idea on the "ICO" but I deeply read some blog and post I think that the best way to find "scam ico" is to manage their team And if they think they use the wrong information, then it is better to stay away from it.

Did you really read the OP and topics listed in the collection before posting?
I already listed the topic in my OP before you posted it.
Thanks for your contribution, but next time I suggest you to be more carefully and spend more time to read available sources before posting.

Good collection for newbies, keep it update. We need to spread more awareness to save especially newbie user of this forum. Mostly newbie users are getting scam due to lazy behaviour. We have to spend time for research before decide invest on ICO or any investment websites. We could save our money if we research ourselves. No one could help if you don't help yourself.

Topics look good, but I have not checked them carefully, but I will do it later.
By the way, I would like to announce you that I have a contest there, with 1 merit rewarded to winners.
You should post the two topics there, and try your luck.
1 merit per applicant who find qualifying posts or topics on Scam Related Issues
