Please. First rule: if it appears to good to be true, it is.
Really, it is..
Just a couple of weeks ago I saw the transaction log of one of these scams (send me 1, I double it). Ten bitcoin. Ten. Roughly half a mil, gone.
Crypto is not a 'get rich quickly' environment. Yes, I know, but there is this guy who made 10 mil on Doge. Or this other guy 'farmed' and earned 500k in a day. Sure, they exist.
I often wonder why people still fall for these scams. Greed? Financial crisis opportunity, stupidity? I don't know exactly, but again: please, even though some scams are too stupid to believe, others are more sophisticated.
At some point, the imposters come to life. Sometimes easy to spot, sometimes a bit more difficult to see. For many, following accounts with many followers an easy trap: "Wow, he sent me a dm to help me.."
Spot the difference..:
Like this, after someone replied to a tweet from the original poster:
Some tips, specifically on Twitter:
Too good to be true, it is;
Check closely what someone is saying;
Look closely at the name and profile;
Watch out for big Twitter accounts & paid shills (no, not all are a scam..);
Never 'just' transfer some funds.
In case of doubt, post your question on our Twitter page.
Take care, watch out and you know: "Don't rekt yourself..!"
