Unfortunately, since the last great bull run in late 2017, cryptocurrency giveaway scams have been an issue for those in the crypto world.
In a nutshell, a giveaway scam is a type of social engineering in which a scammer tries to fool a cryptocurrency investor into thinking that a prominent cryptocurrency exchange or celebrity is throwing a giveaway. The catch is that to enter the giveaway, you must first deposit a particular amount of cryptocurrency to a giveaway address so that your wallet address can be verified and you can collect your portion of the prize.
A platform promising a heavy amount as big as $100,000,000 and claiming to double the amount deposited appears fishy.
This particular giveaway promises a profit of 200%.
There are two simple things to remember while dealing with such situations:
It’s almost probably too fantastic to be true if it sounds too good to be true.
Before you send your money, think twice.
You will not be able to get your money back if you make a cryptocurrency transaction.
