Since this year, there have been many fraudulent activities under the guise of blockchain technology, mainly luring people to invest through fake online dating, causing victims to suffer heavy losses. imToken unveiled these schemes in this blog to protect more individuals from harm.
Online Romance Scams
Bob is a young man who is curious about cryptocurrency. He met Alice, a self-proclaimed blockchain expert, on social platforms. As they chatted more and more frequently, the two became familiar with each other, and then established an online relationship. A few weeks later, Alice guided Bob to participate in a high-return investment project and provided a seemingly professional white paper. Out of trust in his girlfriend, Bob decided to invest his many years of savings.
This seemingly professional and high-yield investment platform is actually a fake project set up by a fraud gang. In a short period of time, Bob saw the funds in his account grow rapidly.
But when he was about to withdraw the money, he found that the platform could not operate normally, and Alice had disappeared. Only then did he realize that this was a carefully designed romance scam.
This case reminds us to remain vigilant when facing high-return investments and online dating relationships. Rational thinking and prudent investment are the keys to preventing such scams.
