2. Social Media hacks
In the last few weeks, I’ve seen several such hacks. Scammers typically announce an airdrop and then post malicious links.
How to protect yourself:
• Watch the logic of the message and the specifics of the project.
• Always check the project’s Twitter, Discord & Telegram accounts.
• Never rush; projects provide enough time for claiming your airdrop. Keep an eye out for all of the announcements.
A very good example👇
3. Fake Websites
Google, for some reason, loves scammers, and you can frequently click on scam ads by googling the name of a project. Don’t do it!
Also some so-called very Account with yellow tick on Twitter are scammers.
A very good Example: @EthereumChecks
With 50.k followers are scammers.
They organized a free Airdrop giveaway to their followers and after days of application, Retweet and filling the form, they changed it to a stealth mint at the tail end.
I noticed there was something fishy, after a while, they dropped a link for everyone to claim an airdrop, the site was a day one old Wordpress like website with it’s domain name not relating to the project name. I didn’t connect cus I saw it coming.
The big question is, were people account drained? I don’t know cus I didn’t connect but all I know currently is they deleted ALL the post and started a fresh now with a pinksale launching of a token (trust me it must be a presale).
Be vigilant and stay active.
