At cryptocoindaddy, we are often contacted by people who want us to write ICO reviews so that more and more people can invest in their ICO. The problem is, there are ton of scam ICO projects – most of which are not even trying to solve any problem. We were recently contacted by Almora and while it is not an ICO, it helps fraud ICO projects gather limelight. Entire team of scammy people is, as expected from India.
The Almora team is constantly looking for YouTubers that can help them promote their scam ICOs. All the people in the team look like bunch of high school pass outs from New Delhi, yet their company is registered in USA. Totally believable. Here are some screenshots that show the reality.
What got us most suspicious the small inclusions of their company name in already-published articles. For instance, like the one on ZeeBiz, which specially contacted these scammers to throw limelight on the recent RBI’s bitcoin ban in India. Money talks.
At the bottom of their website, you will find their completely fake address – 505, 8th Avenue, New York. Since I live in NYC, I thought of meeting the Almora team. What did I found? There is no Almora in that building. Completely random address in New York. They should have chosen Antarctica or something.
This is their address on linkedin. Haryana is a state in India, not USA.
To the ICO projects – there are plenty of slightly more expensive houses that can help promote your ICOs. Do not settle for the cheap scammers. It would hurt your reputation in a big way.
