Scam warning: Decentralised Application: deficit.info

FMA are concerned that the Decentralised Application Deficat.info (“the dapp”) is involved in a scam.

We have received a report from a New Zealand resident whose funds have been unreasonably withheld by the dapp.

The Dapp* falsely claims to be audited by Certik, a blockchain security company. Certik advised this is a false claim and the dapp is misusing their logo without their consent.

*A dapp can only be accessed from within a wallet extension browser. Find more information about decentralized applications (dapps).
