Appcoins Scam at Aptoide Market : Android
So I regarded into Appcoins, which gave the impression to be legit and Aptoide Market had the apps marked with a “Trusted” badge. So i went forward and purchased 2 apps AutoVoice and AutoTools, from Aptoide Market utilizing Appcoins. But as I had hassle getting the app to work, I contacted the writer João Dias (because the error message stated I ought to do).
I used to be very shocked when i learn his response, as João Dias acknowledged that he had no information of the Appcoin variations of his apps bought at Aptoide Market, and that he does not recieve any payback from these gross sales.
So I contacted the writer of one other app (AZ Screen Recorder) I used to be going to purchase, and bought the very same reply from the writer. That their app is barely launched via Google Play Store and that they haven’t any information of Appcoins.
Digging a bit deeper and utilizing Apk Analyzer to show the app data, reveals that the Appcoins model bought at Aptoide Market are signed with a special key than the unique writer. (A positive signal of unauthorized tampering.)

So far ALL the apps I’ve examined, which is bought utilizing Appcoins on Aptoide Market are MODIFIED with unoriginal signature.
So not solely are they promoting and stealing the income from the unique authors. But it is also a case of id theft, as they’re passing the modded apps of as they the place launched by the true writer.
I’ve tried contacting Aptoide Market to no avail and it seems like Aptoide Market is a part of the rip-off.
