The moderators of the account wex.nz on the forum Bitcointalk which is not the real account of this crypto exchange published a message saying that the exchange was closing due to the lack of sponsorship. The representatives of the real account (WEX-OFFICIAL) have not written any similar announcements or refuted the news yet.
Meanwhile, the scammers went even further. They said that the closure “was not their fault” (though it is quite unclear who are “they”) and started to blackmail the CEO of WEX, Dmitry Vasilyev. Their message contained the following words:
“If Dmitry Vasilyev does not pay back the users of the exchange, we will be forced to publicly disclose specific names and surnames for those interested.”
We will closely monitor the situation with WEX and inform you about any updates.
