RE: Scammers Are The Worst!
These thieves will go to no end to take unwitting people’s crypto and money; in this atest example, even a paralyzed war veteran is fair game:
You won’t believe the depths to which crypto scammers on Twitter are willing to sink
Last Friday night, crypto YouTuber Ivan on Tech messaged me on Twitter. Shortly into our conversation, he graciously offered me an investment opportunity in “Bitcoin trading/mining”, courtesy of a platform that he alleged was associated with Binance.
In reality, however, I was being approached by an Ivan impersonator, peddling a crypto affinity scam. The platform “Ivan” advertised, called Cryptobinance, has no affiliation with the actual Binance exchange, a representative of the company told Cointelegraph. But I played along with the scammer to see what additional information could be elicited from him. I told him that I was impressed by his offer and would be willing to invest 50 Bitcoin (BTC) into the scheme — funds that I claimed were part of my pension plan.
