If you view the image in full, then all the images have blurry effect.

Feel free to report. If you missed something in your report , there are many others to correct you and guide you. Smiley

This is my first Scam Accusation Ann. I will update it as and when I will find more proofs.


Seems like your first accusation is valid and I have tagged the OP of the ANN. It's your first but don't make it the last one.   Wink

Good job OP with this finding.

Andrew Collin Linkedin profile link will take you to Andy Collin profile. Same last name, but not the same person.









Their whitepaper is also plagiarized. They copied Kurecoin whitepaper and probably other sources. 
Whitepaper - archive

 Here are some examples:

It's very unfortunate to see that existing platforms intentionally give chance to these scammers.
This token is trading on Coinlim exchange, I informed them about this in their group.
Instead of looking into this, they deleted my post and banned me from group, while the scam team is posting gifs in their group creating fomo and asking people to buy this.
Ridiculous!

It’s a sad thing to see this from a project that I loved and thought it will make impact in this world and help humanity enjoy living with its ideas and concept. Now the truth has been revealed. I thank you for doing this great job. Let’s get  rid of fake and scam pojects.

Hope more people know about it and this sets an example, so that people think 1000  times before scamming someone of his hard earned money.

I will ensure that Coinlim exchange is also bought to books. I informed them about this scam and they banned me. They are for sure linked with it.

Or, maybe they took a fee to list it. After it turned out to be a scam, they are most likely avoiding questions by trying to kick or ban those who are reporting those projects.



Btw how is coinlim linked with this project? I don't find this being traded on their platform.

The volume is low now but it is there. Check this
https://coinmarketcap.com/currencies/spectrum-network/#markets

I understand your point, but when I shared the information to them , at the same time SPEC team was shouting in the coinlim group . "BUY", "To The Moon" etc all those FOMO terms. Coinlim was actively supporting these people in their group and allowing them to spam about their project.

I informed Robert through email about his identity theft and also shared on twitter. It seems Andy came to know about this and has filed a police complaint. FBI has taken over the website.
Official message from FBI can be seen here.
Removed Link as they have converted it into phishing website, please do not visit

It seems the scammers themselves have posted the message about FBI . The website now redirects to phishing attempt. Please do not visit.
