Social Media Account of Serial Scammer Sahil Arora Banned

Social media platform X has suspended the “@Habibi_Comm” account of Sahil Arora, an alleged serial scammer. Arora’s account was reportedly involved in the use of manipulated screenshots of conversations with Australian musician Iggy Azalea and the endorsement of celebrity memecoins that have faced allegations of scams. These activities contravened the platform’s regulations, leading to the suspension.

Celebrity Reactions and Distancing From Sahil Arora

Iggy Azalea, who has launched her own cryptocurrency, has distanced herself from Sahil Arora. Other celebrities, including Olympian Caitlyn Jenner and American rapper Rich the Kid (Dimitri Leslie Roger), have publicly accused Arora of scams related to memecoins promoted using their brand.

Despite these accusations, Arora has continued to advertise allegedly fake partnerships and launch more celebrity memecoins. On June 3, Arora promoted a partnership with the cryptocurrency exchange BingX, an association that the exchange denies.

Additionally, Arora promoted another celebrity memecoin project based on Offset (Kiari Kendrell Cephus), an American hip hop artist who also accused Arora of fraud.

Allegations of Fraudulent Transactions

Screenshots of messages suggest Offset had previous encounters with Arora. A Solana-based memecoin project, which chose to remain anonymous, claims Arora acted as a middleman to promote their cryptocurrency with Offset’s help.

The project sent $20,000 to an address shared by Arora, but Offset claimed he never received the payment. The project alleges they have since been blocked by both Arora’s Habibi_Comm account and Offset.

Despite the suspension, Arora is believed to have multiple accounts on platform X and has been directing followers to a new account via his Telegram channel. Before his social media ban, Arora also promoted relationships with boxing legend Floyd Mayweather and actor Lindsay Lohan.
