Why this scam alert?
On Saturday, particularly, a BTC price prediction article about BTC price surging to $400,00 got the attention of these scammers and imposters who decided to use the article as bait to scam our dear readers. In the comment section, a duplicate Facebook page of Cryptopolitan wrote that the impact of COVID-19 has changed people’s lives, and it is essential for us to support our communities these challenging times.
The imposter wrote that due to an upcoming event, our firm wants to gift 15 BTC. They further asked that for participants to be eligible, they should transfer 0.2 – 1 BTC and receive three times what they send instantly. Also, fellow scammers to make the ploy look real joined in the comment section stating that it is real and they can’t believe it until they were received three times BTC what they sent immediately.
They are all scammers, we have no upcoming event, and we are not receiving or giving cryptocurrencies to any of our dear readers.
