So there is no point politely leading you into this post with some nice phrases and sentences I just need to get to the point and say my peace. Then maybe a discussion is needed amongst the EOS community on what we should so about these scams.
I have been holding EOS from the very beginning and I’m convinced it is the future and it can really benefit the world. But that will never happen if we continue to turn a blind EYE to people who are being Hacked & Scammed.
Pretending it never happened and carrying on like as everything is ok is not a solution. The EOS blockchain needs to put their big boy pants on, pull up their bootstraps and start taking responsibility or at lease providing solutions to ensure scammers do not operate unpunished.
In the real world if you steal something you get arrested charged and if found guilty you are punished. The EOS blockchain needs to have in place something similar. Everything is recorded on the EOS blockchain so something must be able to be done.
This week 2 people that we know off having been scammed by an EOS wallet in the APPLE APP STORE. I will place the videos they made about these scams below & fair play to the people for making them. If Apple Store is such a reputable place on the web then why are they allowing Doggy EOS Wallets to be submitted to their platform?
DONT USE THIS EOS WALLET
Let’s just take a brief and quick look at Apple’s record. In 2012 it was reported that apple assembly workers where ‘Subjected to standing for 24 hours, suicide nets, toxin exposure and explosions’: Inside the Chinese factories making iPads for Apple Now with Apple moving all operations to China where Users of iCloud services in China are forced to share data with a state-run Chinese company. Plus Apple complies with China’s rules again& pulls gambling apps from App Store.
Let’s Put A Tin Foil Hat On Here For A Little Bit.
Apple alliance with China may have compromised their original integrity and founding ideology now it is slowly becoming a device for censorship ideal for a totalitarian regime. Apple may feel threatened by blockchains such as EOS and may allow Scam APP Wallets into their store to steal tokens and get EOS holders to lose faith in EOS.
Potential To Disrupt The Ruling Class

The EOS Community Need To Step Up
I’m not a developer I’m not even a significant person within the EOS community all I can do is write about this and give my opinion. Of course, we can say that these people made mistakes and there is nothing we can do. But is that good enough if someone steals my credit card and spends a bunch of my money I won’t be out of pocket?
Plus the person that stole my funds will eventually get arrested be charged and if found guilty will be punished. That’s how the real world works and that is how EOS needs to operate. The whole EOS community is living on a knife edge wondering when they will eventually be scammed or hacked.
We are like living out the Emperor has no clothes on nursery rhyme here everyone sees the scams and too few people steep ut and call it out for what it is. Its criminal and we got to start doing something about it.
How else do we expect someone to put their savings into Crypto? If all they get for being hacked/scammed is a few sympathetic comments and some sad face Emojis. That won’t scale and that won’t bring on mass adoption
