Security Alert: Important Announcement about Phishing Websites, Fake BEP-20 GYEN, and Emails

GMO-Z.com Trust Company, Inc. (“GMO Trust”) has established compliance controls designed to mitigate risks and help protect the integrity of the digital asset economy. This announcement is prepared to help protect our partners and those relying on GYEN and ZUSD as their stablecoin of choice. Recently, a phishing website was discovered that attempted to utilize the GMO-Z.com Trust Company and the GYEN brand to impersonate the GMO Trust brand and product name. We have taken immediate action to address the fraudulent acts, and the site is no longer active.

Be aware that the following GYEN token that was issued on Binance Smart Chain is in no way associated with GMO Trust: https://bscscan.com/token/0xb7b6092c16b9012022dc54b6eeb8a60cfed891a1. This token was created without bridging to the underlying ERC-20 and is not a bonafide GYEN. While the Binance Smart Chain BEP-20 allows for bridging to exist, GMO Trust has not created a GYEN or ZUSD stablecoin on the Binance Blockchain.

We reserve the right to take any legal actions against all fraudulent websites operating under our company or product name. This phishing site was discovered and it is no longer active. We recognize there are scammers out there and are continuously monitoring to protect our brand.
