Please be aware of scammers on steemit.chat

in scam •  last year

Today I've got several reports about a scammer on steemit.chat trying to sell upvotes under my name.
As many of you know - I'm not selling any of my votes and I've never tried to profit out of my voting power and it applies to all my steem accounts. Currently all the SP I have is delegated to @curie project on not for profit basis (so there is actually nothing to sell). Also the only steemit.chat account I have is 'val'.

Please be aware of scammers and always make your own research before you buy or sell something in the crypto world.

Take care

Hi, im gonna be truthful to you... I'm looking for a way to get higher upvotes and I don't like the buy a vote thing... so, what can I do to get your attention or in case you don't wanna do it... can you give me some advice?
Thanks!

Hello @val-a ,

Do you wonder about the power of Steem? Not just it's monetary value, but as a tool to make change happen? I often think about that and the more I work on steemit, the more I see huge potential. I noticed you have a philanthropic side to you.

I have recently started a very simple project on steemit. It is called 'Upvote a tree', where I donate 100% of SBD to the cause of reforestation here in Northern Peru. I actually plant the native tree saplings myself and I post videos about it on here. I have worked in the field of international development for over 10 years and I have yet to see anything close to what steem can do for the world. The principle of just a simple upvote, no mater the value, means it is participatory and driven by a growing community. I could go on and on about my thoughts and visions, but I know you probably get loads of messages and thank you for reading this far.

Kind regards,

@intrepidsurfer

the things people do sometimes .. it's a shame really

It's funny how this post is comforting to me personally. I went on to as a few questions. One of the mods was unfriendly. I don't know if the person I dealt with was a scammer or exploded from the magnitude of my story. But, I understand your grievances potential is real.

thank you so much for the awareness and opening my eyes personally.

Hei @val-a , these days why are you not not active on steemit?

Hello my dear i hope that you're good this is a humble and special gift for you hope you accept it and like it.

Hello @val-a, thanks for the warning and info. Saludos de Mexico, @Layra

i also met a person like that..thanks for this valuble post


@val-a, sorry to see you have less Steem Power.
Your level lowered and you are now an Orca!

Do you like SteemitBoard's project? Then Vote for its witness and get one more award!

So, yeah. Trying to worm out scammers will be a mind field on a site such as this. Great idea to delegate your SP to @curie. I think they do a good job.
