👮♀️ How not to fall a victim of scammers in the cryptocurrency field?
The world of cryptocurrencies has long attracted not only users and developers, but also scammers. According to the US Federal Trade Commission, the losses of cryptocurrency owners at the hands of malicious actors in 2021 exceeded $1 bln. In most cases, it is sufficient to follow simple rules described in this publication in order to avoid fraud and financial losses.
📌 Do not share your sensitive data
Under the guise of cryptocurrency platform employees, scammers can extort from users their sensitive data (logins, passwords, e-mail, secret keys, etc.). However, real support specialists will never contact you first and ask for sensitive information required to access accounts.
📌 Beware of phishing websites
Attackers do not always come into direct contact to obtain data. Sometimes they use phishing websites looking like popular platforms for this purpose. When you sign into them, you put your account information into the hands of criminals. In order not to fall for such a trick, be sure to check the authenticity of the domains where you enter your data.
📌 Do not send tokens to unknown wallets
Often, criminals openly ask to transfer tokens to their wallets. In this case, as in the case of user data, they pretend to be administrators or other website specialists. The transaction itself is presented under the guise of some kind of “technical necessity”. Please remember that real employees will never require you to transfer to another wallet.
📌 Do not buy coins “secondhand”
Scammers can offer you to buy cryptocurrency from them “secondhand”. More often than not, this ends up being a scam. However, you may end up with “dirty” tokens or “fake” coins in rare cases.
❗️ We would like to remind that Relictum administrators do not contact you first! Under no circumstances will our specialists demand passwords or other sensitive data from you. Be careful as any transaction on the blockchain cannot be reversed!
