Background Information

Earlier this year, CEO Bryan Lawrence had discussed listing Glow Token’s (FLARE) coin on with certain individuals claiming to be staff from the exchange’s end. In March, Lawrence transferred funds worth $250k USD plus BTC 1 (worth $23k USD). However, later that month told him there was no agreement about listing the coin and he had been scammed by those imposters posing as their employees instead. Despite informing Lawrence to stop claiming an existing agreement about listing FLARE crypto-coin; his lawyers argued in an August 17th letter that legal action resulted from failed launch of FLARE token scheduled on April 1st 2023 due to lack of security protocols & safeguards employed by Crypto-exchange resulting in loss of investor funds & harm caused to Glow Token’s reputation.

Glow Token demands return of stolen funds along with compensation for damage suffered by CEO & business due to this incident which could have been avoided if proper security protocols were implemented by Crypto-Exchange beforehand preventing any such scam or frauds in future as well as providing relief from present situation occurred due to negligence & cybercrime activity led by bad actors compromising internal communication system set up at exchange end creating huge financial losses!
