How to Avoid Cryptocurrency Scams
Have you ever received phone calls, text messages, or direct messages on social media from imposters or people claiming to be crypto companies, traders, or even Bundle? 👀
In this article, you’ll learn how impersonator scammers operate and how you can protect your Bundle account. 📝
3 Common Phishing Scams
1. Text Message, WhatsApp, Telegram Scams 📱
In this situation, followers of Bundle on social media, and members of the telegram community may receive a text message from a scammer impersonating Bundle or its staff.
- The text may claim that you have won a prize or some money in a Bundle promo and ask you to click a link to claim it.
- Or, they may claim that your account is under attack by a hacker and a Bundle staff member will contact you to help secure your account.
2. Verification Code & OTP Scams 🔐
The verification scam is one of the most common scams that currently exist. Normally, security measures like 2-Factor Authentication and one-time verification codes make it challenging for scammers to withdraw a user’s funds from your account, even when they have their login details.
3. Phishing Scams 🔗
Phishing scams are also a very popular option used by scammers. Users are asked to click on a link that looks like that of the company but it is a fake account. They might ask you to update your password to continue using your Bundle account, log in to claim a reward or any message that will tempt you into logging into your account.
How To Avoid Scams
