7 of the most popular Bitcoin swindelary

Note that this checklist has long been defective, as it is possible for a website to pass several above-mentioned tests with good colors and still be a farce. The main memory is to conduct the necessary investigation before giving personal or financial information to any website or program. 

1. Theft

The first scam on the list is one that you know well as it is also widely used to target customers of large banks. 

This kind of fraud, known as 'phishing', takes place if you receive an unsolicited email that looks like it's from your bank or, in this case, from your crypto bursary or purse. This email contains a link that leads you to a website that looks almost identical to the bursary or wallet you normally use, but is actually a deceptive website. 

Once you enter your account details on this unofficial page, the scammers have everything they need to log in to your correct account and to steal your funds. 

How to prevent fraudulent scams:

Always check URLs to make sure you visit the right site. 

Don't click on suspicious links sent to you. 

Never reveal your private key. 

2. False exchange and wallets

Similar to phishing scams, beware of false Bitcoin exchanges. They may walk away and talk like a renowned scholarship, but they are just a front to separate consumers from their hard-earned money. 

Some will attract users with promotional offers that sound too good to be true. Other Press users to create an account and deposit funds, and even offer 'bonuses' to those who deposit larger amounts. But once you have money, these platforms can levy ridiculously high fees, make it very difficult to pull money or to completely steal your deposit. 

Other scammers have drawn their attention to creating fairly advanced false purse programs that, once it has been downloaded to a user's smart phone, can be used to steal critical accounts. These programs even become official, legal app shops such as Google Play, so it's worth doing your research before downloading something on your phone. 

How to avoid false exchanges and false wallets:

Stay with familiar and popular exchanges. 

Do you fully study any bursary or wallet before creating an account that the team is behind the stock exchange? Where is the company registered? Are there reliable reviews of other users who confirm its legality? Don't put you under pressure to pay money or give out personal information. 

Don't just randomly choose a wallet in the App Store, just download apps and apps from legitter walls and turns. 

3. Fraud of old school

Cryptos is possible based on new technology, but there are still many scammers using old tricks to counter inadvertent consumers. 

The classic example of this is an unsolicited call or e-mail from someone who claims to be with the IRS. This fictitious taxpayer will try to convince you that you owe the IRS money and that you will be prosecuted if you do not hand over a certain amount of Bitcoin as soon as possible. 

The attempt at deception of a 'Nigerian prince' also migrated to the world of cryptokurrence. So if someone abroad contact you from the blue and promise that you participate in a large amount of digital currencies, if you help them overhand funds from their own country, then use your mind and admit it for deception. 

How to avoid scams of old school:

Use your common sense. 

Do not trust unsolicited emails or phone calls. 

4. Fraudulent ICO

Tendered by the astronomical price increases that Bitcoin has since the inception of u200b, many everyday consumers risk the world of crypto currency looking for the next big thing. Eventually, if "the next Bitcoin" ever arrives, early adopters can get prosperity if they come to the ground floor. 

And if you want to get on the ground floor, the easiest option for the average person to buy coins or tokens in an ICO. There is a great appetite for new digital currencies alone in the first half of 2018, ICO has raised a total of $ 11. 69 billion and many new buyers have limited knowledge of how the crypto industry works, this is the perfect breeding ground For scammers.
