Scammers never stop..once I visit today then again I saw same msg below:


Stay away from this kind of msg. They pure scammers.




Once I check bittrex tweet, I have seen below reply


There is 5000 ETH give away offer. They will ask you to send eth and they will offer you 10X return. Lol.... This not bittrex official Twitter account. Check the spelling they use (Blittrex) instead of Bittrex.
This is a pure scam. Don't send any eth if you see this kind of reply. I have seen almost they make same reply on many exchange's  official tweets. Stay away from this kind of msg. They just make their own fake script. Once you click their link you will see many fake transaction. They will provide a eth address to send eth. And on their script you will see people getting 10X Eth what they send to them. It's totally fake.
There are not any kind of offer like that from any exchange. So be careful & save your money.
Don't click their link.

Wean stay away from them in few ways. Please see below:
1. Need to check their spelling and spelling of original poster
2. Need to check date of creation. Spammer accounts is newer than the original one. (Maximum time, though there might have exception)
3. Need to check followers: spammers followers will be  low.
4. Following: Spammers following will be more than follower. (Maximum time, though there might have exception)
5. Twitter audit: Maximum of their followers are fake.

These scams have been floating around on Twitter for a while now... they are not new. I've seen it on many different Twitter accounts for many different crypto related services/people (exchanges, wallets, ICOs etc)

As always... #1 rule - "If it looks too good to be true... it probably is!"

Anyone stupid enough to send crypto on the promise to get back 10x the amount should not own crypto.

There are so many sophisticated crypto scams that if they fall for such a simple scam they stand no chance of keeping their crypto.

It i really important to educate yourself on crypto safety.

It's honestly nothing new... It's become quite a commonplace scam on twitter. Check out the yobit twitter page and the binance twitter page, if you like. These two IIRC were always filled with scams like these.

The scam is honestly extremely predictable - a fake twitter account is created with a similar name to an established business, this account goes to comment on many posts made by the official account with a link promising huge returns, and the comment is bumped up using fake likes and comments.

Just use your common sense. I can tell you for sure that no exchanges will ever host such a grand giveaway due to the costs involved, and if they do, it will not involve you sending them money, through an external unrelated site.

Are there even people being scammed by this? you can literally see the username beside their nickname, it's always completely different to the original poster. Besides "if it's too good to be true, then it's probably a scam". Also, you can see their username something like @asldhgsdgASDGAsdg <- a completely random username generator or something like that.
