Scams Using Phishing
Always keep an eye out for phishing scams. Phishing attacks are certainly popular among hackers and scammers. A phishing attack typically involves a concerned person impersonating a service, business, or individual via e-mail or other text-based communication, or by hosting a fake and manipulative website that appears to be a real one. The goal is to dupe a victim into disclosing their personal information or sending bitcoin to an address owned by the scammer.
These emails frequently appear to be legitimate but are in fact fraudulent.
Posing as an internet marketer branch of a good and legitimate business is undoubtedly one of the easiest ways to defraud investors. That is precisely what scammers in the bitcoin discipline are doing.
There are numerous such exchanges that presented themselves as a place to exchange and trade bitcoin, but were ultimately fraudulent. Many exchanges have thus defrauded people by posing as a new respectable and legitimate cryptocurrency exchange.
With the rise of blockchain-backed businesses, phony ICOs have gained popularity as a way to fund these new ventures. However, due to the unregulated nature of bitcoin, the door has been left wide open for all manner of fraudulent activities.
The majority of ICO frauds occurred by convincing investors to invest in or through fake ICO websites that used fake bitcoin wallets or other crypto wallets, or by posing as legitimate cryptocurrency-based companies.
Many have already been accused of such malpractices, so it is best to verify such wallets before depositing your money with them.
If you're in the trading industry, you've probably realized by now that huge returns on bitcoin trading, or crypto trading in general, are simply not possible. As a result, if a broker promises you that your money will be doubled within a certain time frame, the best option in such cases is to avoid such brokers as much as possible. They will simply take your money and flee, leaving you with nothing but grief and remorse."""
