Especially in recent days, we are witnessing many Bitcoin (BTC) frauds using the names of the popular people. Many victims lose their dollars to fraudsters due to this video-supported fraud generally on Youtube. In order to prevent this, first of all, it should not be respected to those who share this style.
These fraudsters, who create their Bitcoin addresses from the names of famous people they use, often choose this way to be more believable. These fraudsters have raised more than $ 2 million in the last 2 months under the name Elon Musk.
Whale-Alert team, who wanted to prevent such events, set up a website called Scam-Alert. On this website, you can both see Bitcoin addresses created for fraud purposes, and if such an incident happened to you, you can report to this site and show everyone that that address is a scam.
"Our mission is to make blockchain safer to use for everyone by exposing scammers and other criminals who abuse it. Report scams, thefts and fraudulent websites involving any blockchain or cryptocurrency and help us fight crypto crime! Use our free address check to help protect yourself and others against scams."
Before you send Bitcoin to an address, you can check the address on this website and prevent some of the grievances that may occur.
"Always make sure you know who or what you are dealing with. If someone is offering you an investment opportunity, check if they have a proper website and a Linkedin account, read the white paper and Google the project to see what others are saying about it. If a stranger is asking you for money, they are probably trying to scam you, but if you are not sure try to verify their claims and ask for proof of their identity. If you are still not sure if you are dealing with a scammer, you can send us an e-mail and we will take a look as well."
