  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
