Goxtrade Falsifies Staff Page With Images Of Other People, Along With Fake Contact Information

  • Goxtrade does not have any legitimate contact information for their company’s firm.
  • One of the listed staff members, Amber Baldet, spoke out on Twitter about the matter.

The cryptocurrency market is no stranger to scams in the market, even as far as completely illegitimate exchanges. Goxtrade, which is supposed to be a Bitcoin exchange, is rumored to actually be a scam, according to TechCrunch. Due to the close name to Mt. Gox, it is possible that the company was trying to create a connection between themselves and the now-failed exchange.

Much of these revelations come from the fact that the list of their team members features images of people that are completely unaffiliated with the company. The images come from various social media websites, but none of the images are actual people involved with the company, despite Goxtrade using several of their real names.

Co-founder of the Clovyr blockchain startup, Amber Baldet, is one of the people that is featured on the staff gallery. Speaking on the appearance of her image on the website, Baldet clarified on Twitter that she is not a developer with the platform. She even added that the company is “probably” a lie.

Along with the images of their alleged team, TechCrunch said that Goxtrade is not actually registered at the address provided, and it is not found anywhere on the registry of companies and businesses in the United Kingdom. To make matters worse, the contact information does not actually lead to the company’s staff at all.

This should not be surprised since the staff members listed are not real anyway. Still, the phone number that is supposed to be associated with the company goes to a former clothing company that was based in Birmingham. The email address, on the other hand, is linked to Yandex, a Russian internet company.

Yesterday, The Next Web’s Hard Fork wrote an article on RepuX and JoyToken, who are both blockchain startups. The two companies created joint initial coin offerings (ICOs) as exit scams, running off with $8 million in investment funds. They also refused to pay the individuals that promoted the ICOs.
