Goxtrade Flaunts Misleading Contact Information & Unaffiliated Staff
Bitcoin (BTC) exchange Goxtrade has been accused of being a scam. This is from a publication by TechCrunch on May 17th, 2019.
Goxtrade is accused for taking pictures of unaffiliated people from social media sites to make its online staff gallery. Goxtrade reportedly even retains some of their real names.
Amber Baldet, co-founder of blockchain startup Clovyr, is one of such victims. She said on twitter:
“Fraud alert: I am not a developer at Goxtrade and probably their entire business is a lie.”
In addition to the fraudulent pictures, TechCrunch reports that the company is not registered at its advertised address and it is absent from the United Kingdom’s registry of companies and businesses.
Most of Goxtrade’s contact information leads to unrelated entities. The advertised phone number of the company directs to a now-defunct Birmingham clothing company. Its listed email address is associated with Russian internet company Yandex.
