I have found that in recent time btc phone scam has been increased a lot. Scams call people and pursue people to pay taxes and bills by btc or any altercoins. Even some asks to invest in fake coin also. Mainly the scam group target people over phone.

Has it been happened with anyone??


Fortunately, I haven't encountered this before. But still, it doesn't mean it can't happen to me in the future. Let's all be cautious and be aware at all times. It's for the betterment and security of our profit

No, but how come they acquired phone numbers of crypto users? This is real question.
Probably some exchange with 2FA was hacked and didnt inform about leak or still dont know about leak.

Few of my friends work in illegal call centres where they ask people to pay taxes through PayPal via gift cards worth $500 or more, they used to speak a repetitive speech pretending to be an officer calling from IRS. This made many of those scammers millions in USD, and many got arrested as well for conducting such an illegal business. Think once, if from that way, they used to make millions, why wouldn't they try to scam people by asking them for taxes and making them pay Bitcoins which is pseudonymous and not so easy to track? It's easy for these scammers to make fool of sincere people and loot a lot of their hard-earned money from their pockets.
