Bitcoin Scam Warning: Scammers copy Binance on telegram
Giving away 10,000 Bitcoin – that sounds too good to be true. And it is too. The so-called Giveaway scams always work according to the same pattern. Users should have a certain amount of cryptocurrencies – in the past, this was always the case with Ethereum (ETH), currently swindlers pretend as Binance to give away Bitcoin.
The fraud is quite complex: On a dedicated homepage, the scammers announce the action: To celebrate the alleged launch of their decentralized Exchange (DEX), they want to give away a total of 10,000 BTC. To participate, users simply have to transfer their BTC to a specific address and then receive back five times the amount. Even a transaction history set up the fraudsters, which looks as if constantly transactions would go in and out. In addition, there is a group in Telegram Messenger with a total of 29,000 members. Of these, users regularly post that the system was supposed to work.

However, the stock exchange does not confirm the giveaway on their Twitter account. She officially says that the action is a scam:
