Lana Rhoades, a porn celebrity from Illinois, has been flagged as a scammer by numerous people after promoting a failed NFT scheme. The successful adult movie actress, who in previous months made money from OnlyFans entered the crypto market with a non-fungible collection that, in her opinion, would be a success. However, Rhoades’ promises were forgotten after she took over $1.5 million worth of crypto.

The NFT scheme swore to reward its investors with properties in Metaverse video games like Sandbox or Descentraland. Even within the compensation was included the acquisition of several unique NFT pieces.

With many followers on Instagram, Rhoades pointed out that the NFT plan would gradually improve its adoption. Rhoades’ goal was to get the non-fungible scheme out to other celebrities, but that never came to fruition due to a lack of credibility. With promoters absent in the plan, Lana Rhoades slipped away with a huge chunk of the money.

Crypto theft case involving porn celeb

The Lana Rhoades crypto-scam case took a few hours to become public, even though several YouTubers had spoken about it. Before deleting her Twitter account, Rhoades said these content creators are sick of their opinions, implying that the developers only seek to attract the audience.

In her defense, Rhoades says that sometimes NFT-based crypto investment schemes might not succeed, but this does not mean it is a fraud. Lana Rhoades asked her investors not to focus on opinions about the NFT scheme but more essential things like the conflicts between Russia and Ukraine.

According to the investigators, Rhoades scammed many investors who showed their discontent on Cryptosis, a website dedicated to the crypto plan available on Discord.

One victim who preferred to remain anonymous confesses that she spent about $4000 on a Lana NFT piece, and now the image has no value. Celebrity advocates say Rhoades only fled the NFT scheme because of the harassment she received.
