On Wednesday a group of four Croatian men was exposed by zachxbt for rug pulling at least 9 different NFT projects. According to zachxbt the group scammed investors for at least $2.8M.
The NFT projects that got rugged by the group of scammers include:
- Saconi Holmovimiento
- Pixel Cat Gang

At the time of writing 8 of the 9 projects listed have no media presence anymore, Twitter accounts are deleted and websites are offline.
