This is both funny and sad at the same time. With ICO scams being rampant, checking a project\u2019s white paper is an important part of doing your due diligence before throwing money at some strangers online. But it\u2019s not fool-proof: it\u2019s easy for scammers to copy and paste a legitimate project\u2019s documentation and post it as their own, adding a false sense of credibility to their scam. Scam websites have also been becoming more sophisticated, thanks to easy DIY website design services being so accessible. While being victimized by scams is nothing to joke about, some scammers do provide a bit of comic relief. Miroskii, an ICO claiming to build a \u201cdecentralized bank,\u201d had a pretty decent white paper. \u201cBanking without bankers,\u201d they proclaimed. Things seemed to check out at first, that is, until you see who their graphic designer is. The company listed a certain \u201cKevin Belanger\u201d as their graphic designer, with Ryan Gosling\u2019s photo displayed as Belanger. Even though this is probably one of the funniest gaffes in cryptocurrency scams, sadly people still fell for it. The ICO made off with $830,000 and now the website is\u2014surprise, surprise, gone. An investigation by CNET also revealed that the rest of the team profiles were also fake. This isn\u2019t the only team bluff that made the rounds on the internet as of late, and it probably won\u2019t be the last. Stock photos are a go-to resource for scam websites, but some pull photos of lesser known but otherwise normal and legitimate persons online. This was the case for another exposed ICO scam called Benebit, which took photos of professionals from LinkedIn and passed them off as their own team. But some are more dangerous, as they go as far as to use real people's photos and also their real names. Luckily, some reach out to confirm the association with the actual person. Last year, a shady team that claimed to be reviving SegWit2x had to take down their CEO\u2019s profile, after the latter filed a complaint saying he has nothing to do with the project. To be safe, do a thorough background check of every person on a blockchain project\u2019s team, no matter how convincing their white paper is. It will be a tough job these days with countless projects popping up by the day, but it\u2019s worth suffering through the research to dodge a potentially massive con.
