Recognize frauds involving cryptocurrencies
Scammers are still utilizing some tried-and-true scam techniques, but now they want to be paid in cryptocurrencies. One of the most common methods con artists get you to buy bitcoin and deliver it to them is through investment scams. However, scammers also use other strategies, such as posing as companies, authorities, or a romantic interest.
Scammers pose as well-known businesses.
Scammers may claim they are from different companies, your bank, or a number of other companies when sending these in waves. They might contact you through phone, text, email, social media, or even by popping up a warning on your computer. They can claim that there is fraud on your account or that your money is in danger, and that the only way to remedy it is for you to buy a cryptocurrency and send it to them. However, that’s a con. You will be linked to a con artist if you click the link in any message, respond to the call, or dial the number displayed in the pop-up.
Also, another practice is to ask you to claim a prize or send money to an address, in order to participate in a “contest” with BIG PRIZES. Not one company will ask for money in return for winning a prize. So, anytime, check if that is the OFFICIAL PAGE/GROUP/CHANNEL of that company/project.
