Beware of BITCOIN (BTC) Scam!
CRYPTOCURRENCY SCAM ALERT!
As Bitcoin has increasingly skyrocketed, so have its scams related to it. The Bitcoin network has become especially attractive to fraudsters due to the irreversibility of transactions and the absence of financial institutions' control. You may think nothing of the sort can happen to you, but you’ll be amazed at the fact that almost anyone can easily fall victim to scams.
We want to be sure that you’re well aware and safe from Bitcoin ATM fraudsters. So to avoid being scammed remember these general rules:
- No official government or administrative center will ever ask you to pay using Bitcoin ATM. They also won't text you or use intimidating and "high-pressure" tactics.
- If you have been asked to purchase Bitcoins for another individual or company, you may also be the victim of an elaborate scam.
Scammers may use many different kinds of tactics for this purpose that includes:
- Fake job proposals
- Fake advertisements
- Love Interest Scam: Someone pretends to love you from another country and asks you to send them Bitcoins.
- IRS: Someone pretends to be IRS or any other government entity in order to threaten the person into sending Bitcoins.
- Free Giveaways
- Malware Softwares or pirated applications
- Ponzi Schemes
- Phishing Emails and Websites
There are also other ways, so always stay alert and make transactions to only trusted sources.
