Editorial staff of our website created an appeal to the owners of cryptocurrency portals, forums and news sites. We call on all authors, editors and owners of information resources to support the victims of Freewallet org scam!
We are all an important part of the cryptocurrency community. Our websites, forums, portals and public pages help users learn more about digital currencies, wallets, exchanges, ways to earn money, etc. Each of us certainly knows that cyberfraud is a widespread and dissapointing problem.
- Mislead customers by claiming to provide services by Wallet Services Limited. In reality, this legal entity was terminated in January 2022. Thus, the Freewallet Administration deliberately indicates false information about its legal status in order to gain the trust of customers and get the opportunity to steal their assets.
- Use the website interface to illegally charge payments to third-party wallets, disguising their actions as “accidental failure”, “user error”, or removes the corresponding transaction from the transaction history on the website itself.
- Abuses the provisions of the AML policy, using it as a basis for the theft of assets. This is the most common way of fraud by the Freewallet Administration.
On many sites we see positive reviews about Freewallet. We also see that site administrators often publish news and advertising materials from scammers. This makes us very sad. We are convinced that Freewallet org is a scam project and positive Freewallet reviews are created by professional copywriters, not real customers!
According to our estimates, the number of victims of the scam is in the hundreds, and the amount of stolen assets reaches $8,000,000.
Stories of theft of tokens and coins can be found on dozens of forums and sites, including our resources.
We have filed several official statements about the crime to the NFIB, FBI, and other legal authorities. Also we created an online petition claiming to investigate Freewallet scam. Separately, we would like to emphasize that our appeals do NOT concern sporadic Freewallet issues, but systematic and targeted scam, commited by Freewallet administration.
More about Freewallet KYC scam
KYC is certainly a sound policy aimed at combating crime, money laundering and terrorist financing. But the true purpose of KYC/AML is user verification. At the same time, the Freewallet Administration uses the KYC/AML policy as a legal justification for blocking user accounts in order to further steal their assets. The above links describe typical situations in which the Freewallet Administration, under the guise of KYC, unreasonably blocks the accounts (wallets) of the victims:
- The user creates a wallet using the Freewallet.org website
- The Freewallet administration does not take any action until the user makes a deposit.
- When you try to withdraw assets or send them to another address, the account and the ability to make transactions are blocked.
- The user tries to ask the Freewallet Administration a question, but it starts to delay the answers without providing a list of required documents.
- The user gradually provides the requested documents, including passport photos, utility bills, bank statements, other documents.
- The Freewallet administration, contrary to all established rules and procedures for conducting verification, does not unlock access to assets, citing the need to provide even more documents. At some point, such actions frankly contradict the norms of common sense, for example, when the Freewallet Administration requests re-verification of a user who has recently successfully passed verification.
- Ultimately, the Freewallet Administration begins to ignore subsequent requests, preventing the victim from returning his assets.
Based on the above, we ask you to:
- Remove Freewallet org crypto wallet from the list of recommended services.
- Do not post advertising materials in the interests of Freewallet.
- Cover accusations against Freewallet administration on your websites.
We understand that your editorial offices follow the policy of “journalistic ethics” and “neutrality”. Therefore, we do not call for any evaluative statements on this situation.
But in our opinion, it would be quite acceptable to publish informational materials with the following theses:
“Users have accused the Freewallet administration of fraud. According to them, more than $8 million was stolen from customers.”
“A petition has appeared on the network demanding a ban on the Freewallet crypto wallet.”
“Freewallet has been called a fraudulent project. The petitioners ask the NFIB to investigate the possible theft of coins.”
Such theses are quite neutral, but can avoid spreading of illegal activities Freewallet org scammers!
Thanks in advance for your cooperation and help!
