Beware of Fraud Attempts!​

 

With our token sale just around the corner, we have to let you know about potential fraud attempts. We’ve taken extensive steps in securing our token sale; however, it’s very important for you to follow the below guidelines to properly secure yourselves and avoid fraud attempts prior to and during the token sale. 

  

1. Password on all phones and devices

 

This is your first line of defense. Nobody should be able to access your smartphone, computer, tablet and external hard drives without a password. These devices could have sensitive information on them relating to our wallet address and personal information. Make sure the password isn’t easy to guess (i.e. 123456 or your birthday) and take extra steps like a fingerprint when possible. 

 

2. Updated operating system and anti-virus on all devices 

 

Your devices may do this automatically, and if so you’re covered. Just in case, go into your device’s settings to make sure that you’re using the most current operating system, which will have updates for your devices security. If you don’t have an antivirus program and you’re using a PC we recommend downloading Trend Micro

 

3. Two-Step verification on all devices for access to email, bank accounts and social media profiles

 

Two step verification gives you extra protection on your email address and social profiles if someone tries to log into an account with your email address and password. There are numerous options, some that involve your smart phone and some that don’t. We like Google’s authenticator app, or if you prefer another solution, you can receive a text message with an activation code before signing into your account.

 

4. Information only on official website and Telegram group

 

As of this moment all information about the token sale will be updated on the official LeadCoin channels. These channels will be as follows (and only these until otherwise notified on the website!): 

 

  • LeadCoin’s website: https://www.leadcoin.network
    • Don’t type in the url to avoid spelling mistakes, but instead search “LeadCoin Network” in Google search. From there you should see the url as shown below: 




 

 

5. Do not reply to pms, calls or texts related to the token sale 

 

Until further notice we will not be reaching out to any token buyers via private messages, phone calls, emails or text messages. We will not call you asking for money! If anyone contacts you directly with a wallet address disregard the message and block the person. People may even impersonate group admins or team members listed on the website. Do not reply or give them any information because it’s definitely not us! 

 

6. Do not click on links or download anything from emails 

 

The only emails that we send you will be sent from info@leadcoin.network until otherwise specified on our above-mentioned, official channels. Even if the email comes from info@leadcoin.network do not do anything from within the email. Make sure not to click on links, download files or fill in any forms or personal details. Go to the main website to complete any actions or to contribute to the token sale.

 

Example of a common email scam: 

 

If anyone asks you to send ETH first in exchange for a link to participate in the crowdsale do not send them anything, and block the person. All instructions for participation will be listed on our official website, www.leadcoin.network.

 

7. Keep your wallet safe

 

You should make sure to keep your wallet in a safe place, preferably a safe where only you know the combination. It’s even better if you can set up a multi-sig wallet where someone needs multiple passwords from different people to access the wallet. 

 

8. Password on all phones and devices 

 

This is your first line of defense. Nobody should be able to access your smartphone, computer, tablet and external hard drives without a password. These devices could have sensitive information on them relating to our wallet address and personal information. Make sure the password isn’t easy to guess (i.e. 123456 or your birthday) and take extra steps like a fingerprint when possible. 

 

9. Updated operating system and anti-virus on all devices 

 

Your devices may do this automatically, and if so you’re covered. Just in case, go into your device’s settings to make sure that you’re operating on the most current operating system, which will have updates for your devices security. If you don’t have an antivirus program and you’re using a PC we recommend downloading (enter antivirus software here). 

 

10. Two-Step verification on all devices for access to email, bank accounts and social media profiles

 

Two step verification gives you extra protection on your email address and social profiles if someone tries to log into an account with your email address and password. There are numerous options, some that involve your smart phone and some that don’t. We like Google’s authenticator app, or if you prefer a simpler solution, you can receive a text message with an activation code before signing into your account. 

 

Follow these steps and you should avoid any fraudulent attempt to compromise your coins and information. 

 

Looking forward to seeing you at the crowdsale in 7 days!
