PSA: It comes to our attention that some Twitter scam are going on right now.

Some scammers are replying to our twitts promising to give away coins if you send some coins to their address.

Wow. Those scammers have absolutely no shame, not only they pretend to be official accounts of cryptos (eth, xlm, pkt and almost every other crypto) and crypto traders but as bitcoinforum too?

Are there people in the 21st century who are being led to this stupid scam? It’s not enough that you yourself pay for participation in an unlikely lottery for big money (which is not profitable because of roi), you do it also in the company where the winnings are not paid.

Unfortunately, cryptocurrency really attracts a large number of scammers. In addition, many people do not try to take care of their safety and this only helps to increase the number of such cases. Therefore, I always try to be careful and check resources.

Just don't even click the link you're not aware of the website. But if you insist, check the profile, who's tufalda84 btw with just one tweet. Glad that BitcoinForm acted immediately

Now there are a lot of fake exchanges, exchangers, wallets, applications.  Here you need to be extremely careful and attentive.

As long as you only provide your Twitter username on giveaways like this I think it is safe. If you're asked to deposit crypto to a certain account or even click a link that could lead to a phishing site, stay away from that promo.

This still exists even its 2020, lol! But it wasn't Twitter, on my part was through Telegram. Messaging me in a friendly tone and offered me like sending BTC to my address but he said I need to pay the fees first or something. I blocked him instantly. Awareness is the key. We shouldn't fall as a victim.

Nobody won't give you money for free. Maybe only airdrops when you do something to get coins.

There are ongoing efforts these days to impersonate any person or organization with a large crypto following... in order to take advantage of their audience for some kind of "give-away" scam.

I advise you to look for tokens on a special service that tracks fraudulent projects itself.I use ListingSpy.net , it helps a lot.

New coins can bring a good profit, of course, the risks are high, but if you carefully analyze the project, use the aforementioned service, then the risks, although not reduced to zero, will be significantly minimized.

I have to agree that scammers have increased greatly in number these days. But one thing is for sure if traders don’t try to take any shortcuts, they can save themselves from getting scammed. Just don’t believe all that you read.

Hello everyone, please note this. I started investing with Probtc.ltd 8 months ago . At first, they allowed me to place withdrawal then i thought that they are legal. After 2 months, i requested for another withdrawal since my investment have yield in profit in my account. They asked for money, i paid no responds to me anymore. I was devastated i told my attorney and explained everything to him, he assisted me to review my case with a strict recovery firm after sending them requirements they requested. So far so good they recovered all my usd850k lost initial investment and profits on or before 72Hours. Contact this email if you also a scam victim ( cashuback@rediffmail.com ) they will help you too. I am forever grateful.
