Newman Perez is ‘Scammer’ Video In Colombia Goes Viral On TikTok
Newman Perez, a well-known crypto blogger, met a guy at a Colombian mall who accused him of embezzling money. The skirmish soon acquired views and became popular after being posted on TikTok.
With over 668,000 Instagram followers, Newman Perez left Venezuela for Colombia when that country put him on its wanted list. He is accused of “aggravated fraud, threats against a government worker, counterfeit products, and personal violence,” according to the local media.
Newman Perez is the creator of a number of initiatives. The most well-known of these is Apreciodepana.com, which the writer claims received funding from Google Ventures. However, this information has not been confirmed in a formal manner.
This is not the First Time for Newman Perez
Newman Perezintroduced DivisasToGo, MacStore Venezuela, and a number of financial and trading courses. One of the blogger’s more dubious endeavors was the unauthorized leasing of Zelle payment system accounts, which resulted in hisTwitter account being blocked.
A few days after the trending video was uploaded, Newman Perez referred to the incident as a “social experiment,” perhaps in an effort to defend himself. He included a link to a Forbes story on his most recent endeavor, BNB Beats, in the same Instagram post.BNB Beats was recently marked as a possible fraud by Binance’s DappBay app center.
BNB Beats: An Assumed Ponzi Scheme
Newman Perez disputed this conclusion and suggested paying heed to the audit of DappBay rival HazeCrypto. The BNB Beats smart contract was not discovered to have any vulnerabilities; however, the researchers did issue a warning due to the fact that dividends were paid from fresh user deposits and that deposited funds could not be withdrawn, which is akin to Ponzi schemes.
BNB Beats presently has 3,673 users and slightly over 544 BNB (or nearly $164,000) locked in smart contracts, according to HazeCrypto. The ROI of the project is estimated in the white paper at 333,233% from January 2023 to April 2025.
