Don’t miss Part 1 detailing our coverage of C2CX and Cybertrust, and keep up to date on all our coverage at our homepage!
In our previous article, we explained the known origins of the Cybertrust(Cabs) cryptocurrency offering determined by what little information is left in web archives and abandoned promotional business accounts. Then we focused on the CEO(or Managing Director depending on the site you chose to believe) Evgeny Xata, with no conclusion of origin or concrete business reference that could be found.
Next we will focus on Parker Fairfields. Parker seems to have been a real person at one time. This might be a high-jacked identity; and if so its likely an abandoned profile that was successfully hacked. After looking at Parker’s Linkedin and Crunchbase profile, there seems to be little to no interaction with other accounts. There are further differences between the profile and cached webpage describing Parker as Head of Analytics and Head of Operations respectively.
When you consider the last interaction was in June of 2018, then compare the last interaction of Evgeny in January and February of 2018 at paid conferences, a trend begins to establish. Returns on archive searches for Parker Fairfields on Facebook yield some hints at an account that formerly existed, with the account either going private completely or deactivated by the user running it.
Next we will look at Angelika Kevkhiyeva. This profile is very similar to Evgeny and Parker in some of the suspicious aspects of her public profiles. Some of her public profiles indicate she’s a citizen of the Russian Federation, others have her listed in San Francisco. As she does not appear on any version of the archived webpage before June 2018, and all media profiles have that same month as the last activity that is logged for her, it’s unlikely she is a real person.
The previously mentioned trend of hastily developed fake media profiles and abandonment by the middle of 2018 becomes even more obvious. In the next articles, we will look further at the people involved in the failed CyberTrust venture turned scam, then begin to examine ties to the known scam exchange, “C2CX: A CyberTrust Company”.
