Scammers Target The Victims Of The FTX Collapse By Imitating The Us State Department

Victims Of The FTX Collapse: Investors in digital currencies have been urged by Oregon’s Division of Financial Regulation (DFR) to be cautious in light of the recent rise in fraud within the sector. The warning was posted on the website of the financial regulator, which also included examples of the methods used by con artists. Re-victimizing those who used the now-defunct FTX platform is one such step. The pretext is to recoup consumers’ lost funds.

There has been a meteoric rise in the prevalence of scams using phony digital wallets, pump-and-dump schemes, and MLM platforms in recent weeks. The director of the DFR, TK Keen, has issued a warning to investors to be cautious while dealing with digital assets since the “market is fluid and full of individuals attempting to take advantage of you.”
