A Major Twitter Scam Made Target Promote a Bitcoin Giveaway
Twitter scammers are getting more and more intricate to make their fraud look like it’s not fraud. This time another scam involves a couple of popular brands (and, surprisingly, not Elon Musk). A couple of unknown crypto criminals started spreading a tweet, encouraging the community to participate in a BTC giveaway. The scammers promised to give out $30 million worth of crypto. The tweet were quickly deleted, but some members of the crypto community managed to capture it. https://twitter.com/ernstmul/status/1062300164046626817 The most interesting part of this whole scam is that its organizers allegedly hacked account of such popular companies as Target, The Body Shop, AHDB etc. and used them to endorse their endeavour. There seem to be no other details on the victims of the scam or whether the hackers were caught or not. Subscribe to The Coin Shark news in Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/coinshark/
