ICO Telegram fake sites try to deceive potential investors


Taking advantage of the fact of a whole flurry of information about the potentially multi-billion dollar ICO of the popular Telegram messenger, a fake website has appeared that tried to attract potential investors. The site (https://telegramfoundation.org/), which is allegedly organized by the Telegram Foundation, offered to invest funds for what it called a "public ICO" of the Telegram (TON). However, it is known that the real TON pre-sale was mostly held behind closed doors, and the only public information related to the proposal in Form D, which was filed with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

On Thursday, March 1, CoinDesk received information about fraudulent emails from the alleged Telegram address, as well as a Twitter entry on behalf of the Telegram ICO (TON) user and the @ico_ton descriptor.

In the screenshot of the e-mail, you can see a proposal to participate in the TON ICO through Bitcoin, Litecoin or Ethereum.

 The e-mail says:

"Our efforts in creating a better blockchain cannot take effect unless we get the support of as many participants as possible. In return for your contribution, we will continue developing this blockchain even further, giving you more advantages within blockchain technology."

However, the website from which the message came was registered on February 12, approximately when details of the sale of tokens appeared. According to Whois.com, the site registrar is MaxiDed, who writes on his website that it is a real legal company, an international organization that is officially registered as MaxiDed Ltd located in the Dominican Republic.

The second such site, telegram-ico.org, was registered in Russia on January 26, according to Whois. The Twitter account, also attributed to the Telegram Foundation, was also launched in February this year.
