In the last few months alone, Fintoch has held public events in Malaysia, South Korea and Dubai to promote it.
ZachXBT believes the project was a Ponzi scheme. The purported co-founder and CEO of Fintoch is Bob Lambert, who does not actually exist. His role was played by a hired actor.
The researcher has highlighted Singapore authorities and Morgan Stanley had previously issued warnings about the investment scheme.
