While we are busy watching the Cryptocurrency Prices, our shady neighbors a.k.a. scammers are also busy investing and building their crypto money. Yes, these shady scammers invest too! Keep that in mind!

 

Here are some of the Crypto Scams of the Week found by our Trend Micro Check Team!

Phishing Email

 

 

Then from the email, we will be required to follow the link that will direct us to a fake log-in page of their crypto wallet that was designed to resemble Blockchain’s.

Falling for this scheme will compromise our personal information, lose our money, and stole our identity.  Let's not give them that chance!

 

Trust Wallet

Trust Wallet is another popular crypto wallet platform that scammers use to trick us. SMS text messages will be sent and claim that there is some account-related issue that we immediately need to fix. The SMS text includes links that will lead to fake phishing pages where we need to enter our personal information.

Lookout for SMS text messages that read like the following:

  • “-trustwallet- our system has shown that your wallet has not yet been verified. this verification can be done easily via : hxxps://verified-trustwallet[.]com/”.
  • trust wallet: the btc you just sent from your account is being delayed for security reasons. not you? visit {URL} to secure your account.

 

 

Scammers also send phishing emails to potential victims. Read more and learn how to handle it.

 

 

 

Protect Yourself!

  • The use of the word “FREE” in promotional material is always a major red flag.
  • Use only legitimate wallet apps and browser extensions to avoid phishing scams.
  • Always double-check that everything is in order before you make a transaction. 
  • NEVER click links or attachments from unknown sources. Use Trend Micro Check to browse the web safely and install Trend Micro Maximum Security for an extra layer of protection.

Though none of these are pertinent to my personal financial transactions, I appreciate you making this information available to others to whom it is.
