Palworld Developer Considering Legal Action Following Impersonation Case Advertising NFT

Today the developers of Palworld at Pocketpair took to X to denounce a rather egregious impersonation case that surfaced yesterday. 

According to the post, the account @Palwcrld_jp, designed to create confusion with @Palworld_jp (the Japanese account of the developer) advertised Palworld NFTs while promising in-game rewards. 

What made the issue particularly problematic, was that the impersonator had a golden checkmark badge identifying the account as a verified organization. This made the impersonation more credible to the casual observer. 

The impersonating X account had a golden checkmark badge identifying it as a verified organization. 

At the moment, no explanation has been provided on why the impersonating account had a golden badge on X, especially considering that the badge exists exactly to (in theory) prevent impersonation. We also don’t know the extent of the damage or how many fell for the trick.

That being said, Pocketpair mentioned that they have reported the impersonator to X and is now considering legal action.
