Don’t fall for crypto-scams

  • Don’t share too much information about your crypto-finances on public sites (like social media).
  • If someone is offering you unbelievable amounts of money (as a giveaway or as an investment), don’t believe them so quickly. Take your time to make detailed research.
  • About that research: never check only one review/source. Ask questions, and consult pages like ScamAdviser to measure the risk.
  • The scammers can show up everywhere (including dating apps). That’s why you should never trust unknown people online, let alone if they ask you for money.
  • Trade responsibly and don’t let greed guide you!
