The global popularity of cryptocurrencies, including in India, is evident. More people are jumping on the bitcoin bandwagon for various reasons, with numerous investors raking in inconceivable gains every day. To begin with, it provides users control over their assets and transactions.
However, in the absence of a regulatory authority to monitor the functioning of cryptocurrency channels, users can fall also fall prey to fraudsters and become subjects of scams. Customers have been exposed to an increased risk of fraud as a result of the growing popularity and upward trajectory of the value of cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin.
Here's how to identify and avoid some of the most common types of cryptocurrency scams:
1. If an offer appears to be too good to be true, it is always a good idea to double-check before committing. If a bargain promises you ten times your money back with no explanation, you're probably buying into a con. So, pass on the deal and avoid being a victim of fraud.
2. On the Internet, there are also fake mobile apps that look very similar to actual cryptocurrency apps. To distinguish between phoney and real apps, always search for ratings, customer reviews, and the legitimacy of logos.
3. Always double-check the URLs and webpages. Even in the area of cryptocurrencies, spoofing, which is one of the most popular technological attacks, is common. Make sure you're only interacting with and transacting on sites that have been approved. Keep an eye on whether you're being diverted to a site you didn't mean to visit, even if you're following a link from a reputable source or crypto expert.
4. Phishing e-mails posing as official communications from a reputable cryptocurrency site or exchange are another popular approach for criminals to deceive people. To entice subscribers, such emails frequently include tempting offers and incentives.
5. Fraudsters can also deceive people by impersonating technical help. Always double-check the phone number, social media account, or email address that is being used to contact you – or that you are being contacted – for tech help and troubleshooting.
