What happened: Fake team members, stock photos used.

Reference Link: http://vikingbitcoinco.com

Announced by: ViKing Bitcoin

ANN: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=5143221.0

  • Fake CEO and team members, I only checked the first 4 images, they are all stock photos, I presume rest of the team and advisors are also fake.

I thought that scammers were done with Shutterstock and template images. We found 8 scams last year that were using the same images and names. The design and overall looks appear to be from the same person that possibly created the other 8 scams.

this (below) is confusing/doesnt make any sense.

I was wondering why Randall Jenkins' Shutterstock toothbrush photo looked so familiar. lol

this (below) is confusing/doesnt make any sense.

It is difficult to say which industry is in need of blockchain, Seafood or Hair extensions/Wigs haha


Whoever is behind the website and whitepaper made sure it's difficult for people to search for text/plagiarism as they've used a ton of homographs.
