Potential evidence linking an anonymous scammer to a Canadian group was highlighted by blockchain security firm CertiK in a report sent to Cointelegraph; however, the company has so far failed to confirm the name or identity of the perpetrator(s).

On Aug. 16, CertiK released its findings from its investigation of a pseudonymous crypto scammer known as “Faint.” According to CertiK, the alleged scammer has been active since 2022, and the community has lost at least $1 million from their actions.
