NFT Scam Project Animoon Is Under Investigation By The French Government
- Animoon, an NFT project claiming to be a P2E game with many features, has been identified as a rug pull fraud by ZachXBT.
- The project’s founders, who went by the names @maximadam_ and @marc_blata, have allegedly scammed investors out of $6.3 million.
- French authorities are currently pursuing a criminal inquiry into the enterprise.
Animoon, another NFT Rug Pull fraud identified by ZachXBT, was made public, involving $6.3 million, and French authorities are presently pursuing a criminal inquiry into the enterprise.
In early June, ZachXBT revealed on Twitter that the NFT project claimed to be a P2E game with many presents, reproduction, travel, and other capabilities. But, the team has not produced anything in the last five months.
In March, 100 holders were meant to get Jordan sneakers, 100 holders were going to receive off-white shirts, and 50 holders were supposed to receive supreme shirts. The project team’s distance expanded after the launch, and they started to update less often. Clothing shipments that were promised were never delivered. Animoon sold 9,999 NFTs at average 0.2 ETH each with a huge prize as bait and did not pay any products to the buyers.
Animoon claims to have signed a non-disclosure agreement with Pokémon, however, this is really plagiarism. Immediately after the NFT was published, its staff started working remotely, making announcements or appearing in chat every 3-4 weeks.
The company updated it in April so that Legendary holders now earn a percentage of the money from the P2E game. According to ZachXBT, this alteration was never approved by the legendary holders who were scamming them up. He found that @maximadam_ and @marc_blata were the names of the two founders of Animoon (not their real names). Maxim’s bio states that he has been an “NFT specialist since 2013.” Both have Instagram photos of themselves flexing in Dubai, ZachXBT said.
Meanwhile, gains of $6.3 million have been transferred to Binance and Kucoin trading accounts. Animoon’s Twitter account is presently locked out, the website is down, and the Discord general chat has been disabled.
