- Cryptopolitan is being impersonated to run a giveaway scam.
- The firm knows nothing about this.
- What to do when in doubt about information from us.
Our firm’s attention has been called to the activities of scammers and imposters using our name to run a giveaway scam. We want to state clearly that Cryptopolitan is not giving out any free cryptocurrency to anyone or group of people, and neither are we running any crypto doubling scheme.
Our platform has never run any crypto giveaway since its inception and has no plan whatsoever to dash out any cryptocurrency in the nearest future. Cryptopolitan advises the public NOT to engage in any cryptocurrency scheme in our name. We also are NOT holding a #15btcbonus neither are we sponsoring any consultant, agency, or organization which, through website postings or otherwise, claim to be sponsoring a BTC bonus or other fraudulent activities.
We assume no responsibility for any announcement or activity of such consultants, agencies, or organizations. The mandate of the firm, as our dear readers know is to bring you recent and verified news, analysis, opinions, and price prediction articles as it relates to cryptocurrency or blockchain in general.
Why this scam alert?
On Saturday, particularly, a Bitcoin price prediction article about Bitcoin price surging to $400,000 got the attention of these scammers and imposters who decided to use the article as bait to scam our dear readers. In the comment section, a duplicate Facebook page of Cryptopolitan wrote that the impact of COVID-19 had changed people’s lives, and it was therefore essential for us to support our communities in these challenging times.
The imposter wrote that due to an upcoming event, our firm was going to gift 15 BTC. They further asked that for participants to be eligible, they should transfer 0.2-1 BTC and receive three times what they send instantly. Also, fellow scammers to make the ploy look real joined in the comment section stating that it is real and they can’t believe it until they were given three times the BTC they sent almost immediately.
This is a well organized scam, as we have no upcoming event, and we are not receiving or giving cryptocurrencies to any of our dear readers.
What to do when in doubt
Should you have any doubt about the authenticity of an announcement, email, letter, or telephone communication purportedly from, for, or on behalf of Cryptopolitan, please send us an email query before taking any further action in relation to the correspondence.
