elon musk was involved in a twitter scam

A Twitter account that pretended to be the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, tried to fool the community into sending him/her Bitcoins. The weird fact is that this account had a verification check which could possibly deceive a lot of people.

The original tweet was quickly deleted, but some users managed to document the evidence.

This scam raised a new wave of criticism because of the social networks’ inability to protect their users from scams and frauds.
