A brand new report from the FTC within the U.S. says scammers have stolen over $2 million USD (roughly $2.4 million CAD) in crypto-related scams since final October by impersonating Elon Musk.

The worst half is that whereas folks have misplaced over $2 million USD in Elon-related scams, total, crypto-scams have stolen over $80 million USD (roughly $96 million CAD) whole. If you’ve gotten crypto and somebody you’ve by no means met asks you to both ship it to them for a fast return or another situation that appears too good to be true, it most likely is.

Further, if Elon Musk reaches out to you, you need to know that it’s one hundred pc not truly him. The controversial billionaire could also be lively on Twitter, however I can assure that he’s not trolling his personal mentions for folks to share his crypto wealth with.
