A blockchain investigator has revealed the identity of a memecoin NFT scammer from his wallet address tattoo on his back.
ZachXBT crypto spy has exposed the identity of the fraudster who allegedly orchestrated a bogus memecoin sale to NFT group Nakamigos.
According to a blockchain analyst, more than 20 Nakamigos holders blindly sent funds to a private address for pre-selling fake memecoin.
Furthermore, the show had several red flags, such as a pre-sale hard cover increase. On April 25, he said warned:
“If you buy a meme coin, you need to assume that someone is going to dump you with inside information or that it is a scam.”
Nakamigos is a social media NFT profile picture of 20,000 characters launched in late March. It took just four days for the public mint to outpace the giant Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT, according to reports at the time.

ZachXBT also claimed that the scammer stole 60 ETH worth about $110,000 and deleted his Twitter feed.
He said the scammer “could be the creator of the @NazareAmarga account,” also known as Gabriel Marquez, who had 4.2 million followers. He added that they used Nakamigo’s profile and removed it after the scam.
“There are multiple transactions back and forth with the public address of Nazare,” he said before adding.
“As further proof of Gabriel’s involvement with the coin, he even got a tattoo of his Binance deposit address and posted it on Instagram. In conclusion, I’m not sure if this influencer or the Nakamigos owners were more stupid in this story.”
DeFi investor and developer “@0xfoobar” comment:
“This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen in my life. It never occurred to me that anyone would try to do this. Twice as funny because he got caught doing a scam out of there, and Binance has now rotated everyone’s deposit address so their back tattoo is invalid.”
This refers to Binance’s recent announcement that it will be retiring Ethereum addresses. The company asked users to create new ETH addresses, as existing addresses will expire on May 13.
Just a couple of hours ago, ZachXBT updated the thread stating that “NazareAmarga” asked for his help. The effort will be to redeem ETH to buyers before selling. On top of that, he agreed, and the refunds were sent via tweet about an hour ago.
