I have my Suspicions - SCAM ALERT!!

in #review2 years ago

Scam-Alert-1.png


Well we have all witnessed what happened with BitConnect, they left their customers high and dry, closed their doors and vanished into thin air, although the Coin is still on some exchanges the Lending Platform is non-existent.

I understand how these people feel. I was also a victim of a similar Scam, where they promise you an interest every month and also Commissions on anyone you refer. I didn't refer anyone (Phewwww Thank god!) I was only in it for the promised high return of interest. If only I knew!

You see I was very naive back then to believe that such a system was sustainable. I was completely new back then to Cryptocurrency and when someone approaches you with such an opportunity you think you've hit the JACKPOT!

Sadly I had to learn the hard way and a lot of people who were with BitConnect also had to learn the hard way if they weren't on top of the food chain.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Anyone that promises to double your Bitcoin in 24 hours is probably running a short-term pyramid scheme, although BitConnect did manage to stick around a bit longer than short-term and cause long-term damage for many.


I have been watching a "new" Platform on the Market that goes by the name of LendConnect ...hmm Strange? The name sounds familiar? And it's also a Lending Platform with a referral program, Surprise Surprise.

Same shit, different story!

They are promising 155+% ROI on investments every month depending on how much you invested, which is a 1.5% - 5% return every day. Then also commissions from the poor souls you drag in.

They even claim they have a trading BOT that makes them a 7% return on investment and they are willing to give you 5% of that return so they can remain with 2%. Now how in the HELL is that sustainable, that right there is BS in itself!!

Another suspicion I have is the domain name which is protected by public scrutiny. You can't even see who owns the website. And forget trying to establish their physical address, they claim to be in "EUROPE" good luck trying to find them.

And don't even get me started on the Whitepaper, it looks like a child wrote it, the writing is poor and the grammar also, with no organization, they could have at least hired a professional.

Even when they mention their LendConnect Team they show no faces or names, they can't show us ONE identity but don't worry they assure you they aren't going to SCAM you and run away with your money. They also provide reasons why they can't expose any identities

We all have families and loved ones. In
case LENDCONNECT would grow to be worth
several billions of dollars you can imagine
that our lives would change drastically. We
choose to not adopt the rockstar life with all
the negative perks that are attached to it

Personally, I can't say how long this Platform will last, my thoughts are it won't last longer than BitConnect did, but I could be wrong. As I mentioned before though, they are usually short-term schemes that cause long-term damage.

So please, learn from my mistakes I made years ago and do your due diligence to Research before you invest, even if it is a family member or friend that recommends it, they might not be aware of these issues, they might also be new or inexperienced.

I'm not trying to ruin anyone's fun either, I just want to raise this issue with you and show you what I think of the Platform.

And I believe it's a BIG FAT SCAM

Stay safe FOLKS and thanks for reading

Thx for the heads up Lauren!

No problem @fullcoverbetting Cryptocurrency and the technology is a beautiful thing but it is the biggest target for SCAMS sadly :(

Good on you for letting us know.

It's not something I'd look at myself... this looks scammy to me also. But there are plenty of newbies here desperate for cash (you know the ones) who would fall for this sort of thing.

No problem @trevor.george

I'm going to be the bad guy but as long as it stops people from investing in this crap

I am sick of seeing these SCAMS everywhere, people posting on my social media about them, especially on Twitter! They must be stopped!! :)

The best way to beat the scammers is knowledge. If people know it's a scam and what to look for, then they won't fall for them.

Hey, maybe you should do a post on what to look for, how you find out if it is a scam or not.

That would be really helpful to a lot of users, and maybe recruit some people to help you hunt these guys down and expose them.

Yes it is all about knowledge and I guess experience, I have experienced it first hand, they fooled me too, I guess that's how I have grown so skeptical towards nearly everything which can be good and bad

I know I think I might need to do that :) It does come with a bit of backlash, I did speak about it on other social media platforms and pointed out the Scams and some people weren't too happy about it!

Oh well I will need to be the bad guy but in the long run it can help many people!

Yeah that's the problem, scammers abound these days. We just need to do research more before joining something too good to be true. I too had been duped by some other earning shizz before. Never again.

I know, the SCAMS are getting beyond a joke now and they are disguised soooo well, it's all about the research, can never be too safe out there these days!
