One of the most popular and effective type of scams in which the scammer promises to return multiple times the amount of cryptocurrency the victims sends to them. Giveaways scammers will pretend to be a famous person or to represent a trusted company in order to gain the victim's trust and are mostly active on Youtube, Telegram and Twitter.

Personal, I was actually interested in the currency for a while, but after a small investigation first that clearly shows it's a unregulated market with zero insurance for normal folks, and also watching all the constant news with ongoing scams from thieves where poor people loose their last life savings, and even the latest sad outcry from the people of El Salvador, it's something I'm personal staying away from as far as possible.

No, I automatic will not need to worry about getting tricked by a crypto scam link, as I won't even click on it or follow it to start with.

Hmmm i would have reported one scam going in finland currently, its made by previous onecoin scam former

About onecoin here : OneCoin - Wikipedia & MOT: Finns set to lose millions in OneCoin scam

And this is their newest scam:
Code:
hxxps://tuohivirta.com/
( site does not cointain any viruses, nudity or anything else..its just fake company)

I have reported this site to quad9 , avast, bitdefender.... currently the sites is flagged by ; avira, eset , cyradar

IF you can and will , please submit this to your av vendor..its disgusting that someone is going to cheat poor people with such thing

I have reported several scam sites , thanks to @upnorth ..but the problem is i have to give all my details to domain owner in ability to report site ..this is why im going soft way to providing proof for such av vendors , hostlists etc. so as many as vendor will flag this site
