Thx for info. Amazing how many scams are around. It is just bad for crypto in general because usually new people get burned and than they are out of it for good.

Thanks for sharing this information, my Spam folder is filled with such messages.
Prevention is better than cure, so avoid those messages by hiding your email and not using it except with trusted sites better than searching for the rest of the solutions.
I check the sender's address several times and then do a Google search about that address before starting to read the content of the message.
Also, do not trust anyone who promises you free money especially if you do not know it.

Well, would you rather have one million gullible people in cryptocurrency, or 100,000 smart people?

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).
