In a report sent to Cointelegraph, blockchain security firm CertiK highlighted potential evidence linking the anonymous scammers to the Canadian organization; however, the firm has so far been unable to confirm the name or identity of the perpetrator.

On Aug. 16, CertiK released the findings of its investigation into a pseudonymous cryptocurrency scammer known as “Faint.” According to CertiK, the alleged scammers have been active since 2022, and the company lost at least $1 million due to their actions.

The security firm discovered several Faint-related Ethereum Name Service (ENS) domains, including fadexbt.eth, comfindme.eth, thanksfortheseed.eth, onchainkitten.eth, and hzontop.eth.

CertiK also highlighted that there were links linking Faint to another scammer dubbed “Soup.” On July 17, on-chain researcher ZachXBT released a survey on Soup, claiming that hackers posed as media platform employees and stole millions of assets after attacking Discord servers.

According to CertiK, anonymous scammers often mock projects after compromising Discord servers. After Discord was hacked in 2022, Faint posted a picture showing a watch showing non-fungible token (NFT) card game Cross The Ages announcing that their Discord had been hacked.

CertiK thinks Faint’s 2022 post shows a watch similar to surfaced About ZachXBT’s investigation of a scammer named “Madman”. CertiK thinks this watch might match the one Faint showcased in a previous article.

Despite these findings, the blockchain security firm was still unable to determine the actual name or identity of the hacker. The company stated that Faint still poses a threat to the community and encouraged community members to protect themselves from potential wallet drain attempts.

In the report, CertiK recommends apps such as Wallet Guard and Pocket Universe, which can alert users of their connection to wallet stealers. Users can also take precautions by verifying addresses and ensuring that any approvals they sign are not from recognized phishing addresses, the company noted.
