CoinShark does not hold any promotions and giveaways! All messages on our behalf in social networks are a hoax. We have nothing to do with it. Beware of scammers!
In our social networks you could see reports that in connection with the holidays we are supposedly distributing BTC. The message on Fb reads: "... Send us coins from your account, and we will double them, three times..."
It's not true! Once again, we emphasise. We do not hold shares and distributions of cryptocurrencies. These are the actions of brazen crooks.
We want to make it clear that CoinShark will not provide cryptocurrency for free or offer you to participate in the Bitcoin multiplication program. Since the creation of our website, we have not held any shares related to the free distribution of cryptocurrency.
CoinShark is not responsible for any fake messages on our behalf or the actions of the scammers. Our mission is to provide you, our readers, with the latest news from the world of cryptocurrencies.
Why we write a rebuttal
Every day on our Facebook page there are several messages from scammers forging the page of our account. In them, impostors tricked the public to steal money from our readers.
There is nothing sacred to them. Here's what they write:
"Due to the difficult financial situation of the inhabitants of many countries caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, we are holding a draw of 10-15 BTC.
To get support in these difficult times, you need to send to the specified address purse from 0.2 to 1 BTC. And you'll get 3 times as much immediately"
Remind me that this is a lie.
As well as comments on a fake post, also written by scammers. These comments, left by many people, say that they took advantage of the action and have already received a payment.
It's not true! Scammers are constantly trying to deceive you. We regularly block these pages and delete messages, but they reappear. So be vigilant!
The scale of the threat
Scammers have flooded the internet. Such fake ads are published on behalf of most popular companies and even famous personalities - Elon Musk, Vitalik Buterin, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and Bill Gates.
In this article, we will tell you how not to get caught by the trick of these impostors. And also tell the sad story of how one of the internet users lost 10 BTC because he was not vigilant enough.
6 tips not to fall victim to a scammer
- Free cheese only in a mousetrap. Turn on your logic. No one will spend their money that way. Why would Elon Musk, The CoinShark team or anyone else need it?
- The message about the action is written not as a post, but as a comment. It's illogical and suspicious. If the company conducts a giveaway, it writes about it on its official page and posts the information on the official website.
- Consider a fake page on whose behalf a message about the action is left. Make sure it's not an official CoinShark account. We have more than 4500 messages, and there is nothing on the fake account. Or a couple of stolen photos from our website.
- Look at comments from scammers claiming they have already received a payment. They are all written with a bunch of thanks and emojis. In the same style. Very suspicious!
- Consider the accounts from which the comments are written with thanks. They are fake - except for stolen photos there are no messages, no added friends. No nothing. Empty personal page. It doesn't work that way!
- Never transfer money to scammers. If in doubt, email us on the email or on any social network. We will definitely answer and confirm that we do not hold pranks and giveaways.
Hopefully you have figured out how to calculate the scam. And now you'll be vigilant and don't lose money, like a crypto user with the nickname "Sebastian" who transferred 10 BTC to the scammers who wrote 10 BTC on behalf of the head of Tesla and lost $600,000.
The victim complains that he was fully confident that Elon Musk was actually holding the action. Therefore, he immediately sent to the specified address 10 BTC.
Naturally, his wallet did not receive any money. And he realised that he fell into the clutches of the scammers. He went and told his wife that he had made the biggest mistake of his life.
History keeps silent about what happened next. How do you think the wife reacted to the news that her husband had lost their savings? We're sure it didn't work out well.
So take care of yourself. Keep your head cold and always analyse suggestions that seem too tempting. At 99.99% it's scam!
