How Bitcoin Giveaway Scams Work?

Scammers pretend to be from legitimate companies such as KFC, reaching out to users on Discord. They claim to be holding a giveaway campaign, trying to persuade you to click on a link to get Bitcoins as a reward. Scammers use different excuses, but the tactics of Discord cryptocurrency scams are similar. Be careful when they ask you to:
  • Register on a scam website.
  • Enter promo codes.
  • Verify accounts.
  • Withdraw awards.

Once you click on the [b]phishing link [/b]they provide, you will be taken to a website and asked to enter [b]personal information[/b], such as passwords, credit card numbers, or bank account details. In worse situations,[b] malware[/b] will start to download as soon as the link is clicked.
