Crypto scammers rake in more than one billion dollars using fake crypto wallets

  • Never click on any link from an unknown source, even if it appears legitimate. Scammers frequently send emails or texts containing links to a fake wallet.
  • Always go to the original website rather than clicking on sponsored ads. Scammers often purchase ad space on search engines to promote their counterfeit website that often appears genuine.
  • Scammers will regularly message you pretending to help. After gaining your trust, they will send you a link to download their app and transfer funds to it. They will often fabricate why you cannot withdraw funds unless you deposit additional funds into it.
