Seems like a scam.. The person in the picture says he x10'd? That is EXTREMELY unlikely.


http://ltcgiveaway.com/ - this site is 100% a ponzi scheme.

I'm starting to wonder whether you're serious about thinking this is legit, or if you're simply promoting this, either way, you're nuts.

they're impersonating the ""Litecoin "Team"""......  ::)

I don't think he is promoting it. Of course, it's fake. Remember that there are always giveaways like that that you should stay away from. You can only trust info from official channels.

I am not promoting this I just want to be sure if it is trusted or not because my father founded this site so I didnt know if it is real of fake airdrop.I was thinking that maybe ltc team created this airdrop or if not that somebody from their team will reply here and tell us if it is scam.I just dont want to be scammed from some kind of shitty airdrop.I already tried USDcoin aidrop and they are also scam.This is also suspicious for me so I need more info from more skilled people.Most aidrops I hate but all aidrops cant be scam but most are scam,this also look really suspicious.

Established projects such as litecoin are very unlikely to make giveaways.
Airdrop and giveaways are common for new projects.

Sometimes other projects like blockchain.com may make a giveaway for kyc or something like that ..

I don't think this is a legit giveaway so is better stay away from this and better search for another airdrops and you can also search any other jobs and get paid in crypto coins. If they ask to invest then i'm sure is a scam.

never ever send your funds to get some kind of airdrop or giveaway. It doesn't matter if it is real or fake, just never send your funds. The moment you have send them, you have lost them forever.

Their website shows a really active set of participating TXs, receiving a return tenfold TX. There are simulated TXs on the site just about every minute. If you explore the LTC TXs for the provided address on a real explorer, there are only 35 TXs with an aggregate of 970 received LTC.

Not that it is really necessary to go to the trouble of looking at the TXs, since the conditions of the airdrop are ridiculous to start with. Even so, it looks like 35 people have fallen for it over the last month ...

You are right,I contacted litecoin team via facebook and telegram and everybody said me same thing  :'(

Good idea to avoid scammers,next time I will look at those transactions more careful because it can save me a lot of time to avoid scammers much faster then before.I will do the same thing next time  ;)

Most people using common projects to steal private keys, KYC documents, promote their social media pages etc. Then be careful with those scammers guys. Please check twice before entering any campaign.

This should be pretty obvious enough. It is definitely a scam, but it isn't someone from the litecoin team itself doing the scam. It's just someone masquerading as a litecoin authority. Always remember that anyone with decent computer knowledge can start a website(or a Facebook page in this case), even with little to no coding knowledge. Also noting that that ltcgiveaway.com looks like it was made in a few minutes with a free wordpress theme.

While they even have the nerve to use HTTPS, anything that requires you to send funds to some unknown address reeks of a scam.

I checked the website and after seeing the "send X LTC and receive Y LTC", no doubt about it.

If engaged in a giveaway and anything asides basic tasks is required to claim, and you are to reveal personal information, private keys, emails, then there's a very high probability that it's a scam.
Noovs are the ones commonly sucked into these sort of project scams, which simple inquiries could uncover.

Just to clarify for newbies, some legitimate airdrops do require personal information and/or an email address; it's up to the person to determine whether or not risking their identity is worth it (it often isn't lol). Private keys are a big no-no though.

I think most ads about free BTC or LTC coins giveaway, it is a good chance it would be a scam. BTC or LTC are unlikely someone will give free for not reason. We need to avoid their trap, if anyone want BTC or LTC, just go to good exchange and buy them.

They stated obvious but still it helped you to not beign scammed. Its good they replied to you.
If something sounds too good to be true, its almost always is. It saved me many times from beign scammed.
Be carefull and always check twice before investing

I don't think that the LTC will hold a bounty or giveaway, LTC has been widely known and that makes the LTC no longer promote their coins,

I'm sorry, but you placed the theme in the Beginners & Help section, you need to move the theme to a special thread Scam Accusations (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=83.0)!

At least you knew to ask the official litecoin team, before putting more money and effort into this scam.

You got to realize that a lot of the called "giveaways", run by seemingly trustworthy and verified accounts that ask for an initial deposit, your private keys, or your personal details in exchange for "airdropped" coins are all scams. This litecoin giveaway scam works just like the classic scams in the past which exchanges like Binance had to deal with before, and the process is exactly the same.

Don't ever send funds to any addresses that these giveaways present you. Legit giveaways would never ask you for money, just use your common sense. If they're really looking to promote their site, they wouldn't be asking for money as if they are some form of investment firm.

In the future, if you see any similar airdrops, giveaways, or investment opportunities from established organizations or companies, always verify their legitimacy first. If it sounds too good to be true, avoid it. Search on google whether there are any official articles released about any events, and verify that it is indeed official before proceeding.

If it's to good to be truth, most of the time it is. That "give away" on Twitter and other platform are all a scam, specially when they ask you to send money, coins and/or private keys before sending you what they've promised for.

If someone wants to give you coins, and ask you for coins before giving the coins they promised, it doesn't take to be a genius to know it's fake. I mean, if they want to give you something and ask for tx fees or any other way of money, you should stay away from it.

When I send coins to people with whom I'm doing business and the fee needs to be pay by the or something, I just discount the fees from the amount I'm supposed to send and that's it, no need for their privates keys, for an advance or something similar.

This field is 99% full of scammers, you are dealing with the biggest piece of crap that the world has to offer here, people without shame that hide behind a screen to steal other peoples wealth is very common here.

My father say most of the time "In my time, if you wanted to steal from someone you had to get in front of him and confront your victim. He also say that another good way to steal from others was to educate yourself. I guess that in our time you have to be educated (hackers, programmers, ICO founders...) to steal from others.

It is rather strange that there are still people who believe such promises) The more fabulous the offer seems, the more likely it is scam)
