Our team at OCYNT came together to create something that is simple and interactive yet informative that can help everybody regardless of tech know-how. 2020 gave us a pandemic and a rise in the rate of scams and all kinds of fraud attempts worldwide; hence the need for this website. This project has been in the works for a while now, with the creative team designing and redesigning with you in mind and we hope you love it just as much as we do!
whoscammed is the first feature of OCYNT to be rolled out before our big launch. It is a creative, constantly updated database of scams that enables you to look up what you think might be a scam and confirm for yourself. At OCYNT, equity is one of our core values; and we believe everybody should have access to opportunities without fear of data theft and the likes which brought us to the whole premise of this website- a way to make informed decisions.
the database employs information collected from research and confirmed scams combined with Open Source Intelligence(OSINT) tools to flag scams. For scams not logged in our data, the algorithm looks out for red flags; the more red flag an entry gets, the more likely it is to be a scam.
