[Scam Alert] Bitcoin / Cryptocurrency Giveaway Scams on Discord
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.
