A fake Erik Voorhees Twitter account is trying to scam users into filling out a survey to steal their altcoins, the latest blog post from the company reveals. Erik Voorhees, CEO of the cryptocurrency exchange ShapeShift.io had reported the account to Twitter; the account is suspended as of now.

The fake account used to mirror the CEO’s Twitter account, using the same name and the image, however, there was only a minor distinction. The fake account handle is @ErikVorhees (with a single ‘o’) while the real account is @ErikVoorhees.

Users of the fake account spammed people, asking them to fill out a short survey about their experience with ShapeShift.

“Would you like to fill out a short survey about your experience with ShapeShift, and then get double the amount on your next shift?”
