Crypto Scammers: Beware of Deceivers in the Digital World
Scammer is a person who participates in a fraudulent scheme.
Who is a scammer?
A scammer is a person who commits or participates in a fraudulent scheme. This is a person who makes money using illegal methods by tricking people into giving out information they would never give out in a legitimate way.
Today, there are four main ways in the cryptocurrency world that you should be worried about.
- Self-advised sites, where even though the site looks legitimate and identical to the real one, you may be directed to another platform to make a payment. For example, when you click on a link that looks like a legitimate website, but hackers for some reason created a fake URL with a zero instead of an "O" you might be visiting a malicious website that could potentially steal your information and, in turn, deceive you.
- There are also fake smartphone apps that contain malicious code that can steal your data. These are typically downloaded from third-party sites rather than the official app store.
- In addition, social networking updates can be illegal and may include hacked profiles that spread fake info or fake news.
- And finally, one of the most common types of fraud that has stood the test of time is fake emails.
