Heist Or A Scheme?
Russian PFP Gang
The newest scam to come out this week in the world of DeFi is an ongoing pattern of three Russian developers posing as women to sell their different NFT projects.
It was discovered after some investigative work by fellow NFT buyers and developers.
I'm the person who started all the fuss @FameLadySquad and @queenship_ project. I have enough proof to state that FLS was created by 3 males who are also behind a whole bunch of abandoned NFT projects.— Fedor Linnik (@FedorLinnik) August 10, 2021
And their "signature" convinces me Queenship is also their product. Thread/
There is a massive NFT scam happening right now.— NFT Marty (@nft_Marty) August 10, 2021
It goes beyond @FameLadySquad and @queenship_
I'm concerned people new to NFT's will get rugpulled.

The Absolute Bull🤫it NFT Game?
Unit (ERC1155) and Absolute Unit (ERC721) are NFT games with a Reverse Dutch Auction mechanism. Which requires only bulls for the game.
So our artist worked his ass off the last few days to deliver the generative NFT collection concept asap and we think it's sick!— The Absolute Unit NFT Game (@the_abs_unit) August 14, 2021
