An investigation by ESPN Cri, based on information from US regulators, has identified that G2As goldmine was set up as a fake by a Chinese company in the United States.
The investigation also alleges that a second G2At goldmine has been created as a scam by a second Chinese company.
G2A, a U.S.-based video game developer that is the owner of major video game platforms such as Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo and Wii, was accused by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of creating the fake goldmine and the second goldmine to steal $500 million from investors.
The SEC’s investigation is the second to be launched into G2’s goldmine.
In July, the SEC also launched an investigation into a Chinese-based video games publisher, Gameloft.
In a statement to ESPN Cra, G2 said that the SEC has not substantiated its allegations, that it is cooperating with the investigation and that the investigation is ongoing.
The SEC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The G2a.com Goldmine is set to open on July 1, 2017, with a retail price of $199.99.
