We became aware that the name of Blockchain Law Group and its founder Katrina Arden, who is a licensed attorney, is being used in connection with the false claims of ICO escrow.
It had been a recent trend among the fraudulent ICO to claim affiliation with the reputable organizations, including the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), to lure the investors in. Fraudsters post logos and names of the organizations on the web-sites claiming their various participating roles in the ICOs. Unfortunately, many investors believe the information without verifying it with the organizations.
Sometimes, we gained information about an unauthorized and misleading use of the name of Blockchain Law Group and attorney Katrina Arden from the investors who call or email us to verify our participation as an escrow. In such cases we immediately send a Cease-and-Desist letter. However, some of the instances go unnoticed until the fraudulent ICO is over. Many times, fraudsters are non-U.S. persons, who live and conduct their unlawful activities outside of the U.S. to avoid being brought to justice by the U.S. authorities.
Please be aware that such companies as Insolar, Genexi, KYC.Legal, Coinlancer, INS Ecosystem, S3ntigrapH, Bitcoin Coral, Cero Coin, Vanig, Femergy, Virtual Arena, and PayTezo have never been provided escrow services by Blockchain Law Group nor attorney Katrina Arden. There could be more fraudulent claims, which we are not aware of yet. If you see anyone claiming any involvement of Blockchain Law Group or attorney Katrina Arden into an ICO, please let us know by contacting us via a phone number or a contact form on this website. Please help us fight fraud.
