MetaMatic $META Incident:
MetaMatic raised 250 BNB in the presale. It was launched on March 26. 187 BNB liquidity has been added to Pancakeswap. 1 year locked. The project owner(Paul Gaudiano) was doxxed. He lives in England and is a British citizen. He has a company registered in England (https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/13832530/officers). You can see the name and company address in the company records.
On March 29, a large number of tokens were minted from the contract. By selling these tokens, he bought 205 BNB in the liquidity pool and made rug pull. (Tx hash: https://bscscan.com/tx/0xf090d08e1f5f90ee32abd6a51ef9eac96b1aa4d970d2b85bc5e9df5f9096f88b)
When we first contacted the project owner, Paul, via Telegram: he said that it was the developer who created the smart contract, not him.
We asked Paul to compensate investors for their losses.
Afterwards, the Twitter account of the project was closed. Paul’s Telegram account has been deleted. We tried to reach Paul by email. So far we have not received an answer.
205 BNB stolen from investors was transferred to different accounts via fixed float.
The general excuse of scammers is “I didn’t do it, the developer did.” Paul Gaudiano clearly stated in the documents and video he submitted to us that he controlled the smart contract himself.
We also asked this issue again in the video call. Paul confirmed that he controlled the smart contract himself.
Paul cut off communication with us.
