Dishonest.co.za is an OSINT wiki focused on tracking the complex ponzi, MLM, MMM, crypto scams and the people running them.
The masterminds behind these scams exploit victims without guilt or shame and they feel no sympathy. They often front, own, or sponsor charities and worthy causes as an extra layer to hide behind.
They are organized career criminals that will prey on the financially illiterate and steal pensions from the elderly. They will take all of your life savings and they will convince you to take a 2nd bond on your home. They are highly convincing and manipulative and they will steal every last cent you have without remorse.
Don't feel sorry for them, be cautious and be careful, and always perform your own due diligence.
Remember, you are dealing with dangerous organized criminals, if it sounds too good to be true, it normally is.
