DF Fintoch Crypto Project Accused of Exit Scam with $32 Million of User Funds

DF Fintoch, a relatively unknown cryptocurrency project, is suspected of conducting an exit scam and absconding with $32 million of user funds. The project, which claimed to be affiliated with Morgan Stanley and promised a daily return of 1%, has been exposed by crypto investigator ZachXBT.

Morgan Stanley has denied any affiliation with the project and the CEO, Bob Lambert, is suspected to be a fake identity, with a picture of actor Mike Provenzano being used instead. Many investors have reported being unable to withdraw their funds and the Monetary Authority of Singapore has added the project's website to its investor alert list.

    I recently read a fascinating book about the history of the East India Company (EIC) called “The Anarchy” by Wiliam Dalrymple. For those unfamiliar with this chapter of European colonialism, the EIC was a joint stock company that was given a royal charter/monopoly over the trade between Britain and the Indian subcontinent. Over a few centuries, what was initially a weak and poor commercial enterprise that survived at the whim of various Indian rulers conquered the entire subcontinent and paved the way for the British Raj, which lasted from the late 19th century until 1947.
