Syncdex.Finance has orchestrated a rug pull scam on its investors, carting away roughly 200 ETH. The project has reportedly deleted its social media handles.
SyncDex_Finance, a zkSync-based decentralized finance project, has reportedly scammed its users for roughly 200 ETH (roughly $383k at the time).
According to zkSync Hub DAO, the platform has muted users’ comments on Twitter, adding lots of words to its ban list on Telegram and Discord to instantly block users raising concerns over the anomalies on the platform.
The project has also locked its ETH/USDT staking pool, making it impossible for users to withdraw their funds.
