Cryptocurrencies: Beware of scammers


Image result for cryptocurrency shared by

I got this email that I want to share with you because I believe that like me you may have been ripped off by people who tell you there’s money to make there…

Read the email below:

As of late, I’ve had a lot to say about cryptocurrencies… 

in fact the entire marketplace has had a lot to say.

If you invest in cryptocurrencies or have any interest in doing so,
I have urgent information for you.

This information is to ensure you don’t get taken advantage
of by scam artists lurking in this space.

Please take a moment and read what I have to say.

It can be the difference between securing a fortune in digital currencies,
and losing everything to scammers…

Whenever there is an opportunity, there are criminals who will try to hurt
the people who are doing well with that opportunity.

Just like the internet, just like home ownership 10 years ago, just like “junk bonds” in the 80s,
there are people who want to take advantage of the exciting opportunities
found with bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

We started writing about cryptocurrencies to help people understand the
difference between the “legit” currencies where there is ENORMOUS opportunity,
and the scam currencies that are out there.

And it’s equally important to understand the other ways that the Madoffs of the bitcoin
world are trying to hurt people with scams.

You’ve heard us refer to the crypto space as the Wild West before.

Well, it’s true of the exchanges that operate within the crypto space.

Meaning, the customer support for exchanges like Coinbase or Kraken are very young.

A stable and responsive support system is still being built.

That’s why we want to provide you with as much legitimate support as we possibly can,
based on our own experiences and those of our network.

Please heed our advice, commit it to memory and take these security efforts very seriously.

Watch Out for Scammers Online

There are certain things you should know when dealing with
cryptocurrency exchanges.

First some of them, like Coinbase, don’t even have a customer service phone number.

So if you search online for Coinbase support any number you find will likely be fraudulent.

Do not call them.

Here’s a list of do’s and don’ts when dealing with any cryptocurrency exchange…

  • DO NOT rely on a Google search to receive contact information for an exchange.

Scam artists cheat the system and send their false numbers and contacts to the top of the list.

  • If you get a message like these below at whatever exchange you are using: IGNORE IT.
    • “Given recent outages, please help us verify your identity. Click on this link where you can enter in your username and password”
    • “You have reached platinum status. Please sign in at ABC to receive an extra bitcoin”
    • Etc., etc.
  • NEVER give your password or other account information to a site using a link given to you in an email.
  • ALWAYS go to the website directly rather than using any link provided to you in an email.

Our goal is to help you maximize the potential of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

You can, and will, generate great wealth from cryptocurrencies in a safe manner by playing it smart.

Please continue to let us know if you run into any issues, security or otherwise
while investing in cryptocurrencies.

Thanks and let’s get back to the business of business.
