Free Giveaways/ Free Airdrops

Legit assets never come up free, if they get value some one have to pay for it. So, if you found anything free anywhere just consider it as a scam.

Fake Websites/ Fake accounts

Scammers are creating fake websites/accounts to obviously scam you, Always be alert and check double are you visiting original website you want to visit.
(Fake accounts can have high level of merits/members/followers can be bought or created in focus to scam people in dealing with them never trust their accounts blindly always double check are you contacting right person and getting right information that's it are accounts for dont click any link given by them)

Malware injection's / viruse's
 

According to research most newbies are getting scammed by malware where their address's get replaced while sending coins.
Never forget to checkout every address while copy pasting through clipboard.
As crypto get valuable all eyes are on it so better to be safe than sorry virus's and malware are on whole internet protect your accounts with minimum 2 levels of security.

Pyramid schemes and alt-coins scams

Pyramid scams are most popular just completely avoid them if your plan is to remain in crypto.
Alt coin scams are 10x 100x avoid your greed (Simple formula is someone have to pay to get you 10x 100x and of course you are a newbie)

Kind Regard's

  

Emotion's are backing Bitcoin & Humans are due to emotions.
Then how People will stop buying it.

Also are some special fake free giveaways on social media and YouTube which scammers will request people to pay like 2 into to pay back in 4 or more. Some even were able to hack celebrity's accounts to create such fake giveaway that many people always fall for.

There are also as many as possible ways to scam using social media, especially on Telegram while other social media are commonly also used by scammers.

Legit assets never come up free, if they get value some one have to pay for it. So, if you found anything free anywhere just consider it as a scam.
Many people have been scammed this way but there are also legit airdrops. Just that airdrop supposed not to require KYC while fake ones are using it to collect people's personal information and using it indirectly to scam them, like sending phishing emails to them.

Some airdrops are completely fake and request for VIP fee or certain amount which if paid, the victim is scammed and will never be given any airdrop coin. People going for airdrops should know these risks. People that know much about the scam involved are using another email for airdrops while vigilant of any mail sent to such email.

As always, nothing new, except that the OP decided that his information was unique. I hasten to disappoint you. We swam, we know.
Again, some friendly advice, try to write new information. I still remember that you are the most popular person in the cryptocurrency industry.  Grin


[Guide] Collection of comprehensive guides on identify and avoid scam projects. In this topic, many other topics are given and they are helpful to detect scam projects
[Guide] Identify scam projects by hidden premined coin indicator via explorer. This topic can be outdated because nowadays there are more new tokens than new coins. Fortunately you still can use this tutorial to check holders, distribution of token and track the movement of big holders.

OP, is there anything new in your theme?

Obviously, those who fall prey to airdrop scams are usually newbies. Any veteran caught in this web of deceit should've their head examined. In 2017, airdrop was the frenzy at the time and a lot of us were caught up with it just like faucets too. But looking back now, it's obvious that it was a mere waste of time as what most of those projects did was gather emails and then disappeared into thin air. Even those who eventually airdropped, the tokens didn't worth much; most didn't even list at all. So, I think newbies should completely avoid airdrops, same way they should avoid faucets.

Legit assets never come up free, if they get value some one have to pay for it. So, if you found anything free anywhere just consider it as a scam.

 
Not really, legit project also do giveaway, and sometimes this may be during a season, like the Thanksgiving, Christmas or at a time when the world is facing a situation, but the difference from the legit and fake giveaways is the hype, and consistency/continuity the fake gives go it, this is because that's all what they are about, that's is that essence of the script, they are alone existing to run scam give aways so you would also see them run that give away, and can even get it shilled, so -Newbies- has to be very sensitive about them.

Also, people need to be aware of just bad financial advisors and companies offering investment opportunities. They might not be scams per se, but their bad advice as well as they being paid by projects to get investments in could cost you money. Sure, the aforementioned scams are the most frequent, these legit investments are also something to look out for.

Op i disagree with a concept that stipulates everything that is free is scam, not all things that is free indulge into scamming class, yes of course we have numerous of scammers from different angles and different social media hangout, they will be a stage you found yourself definitely you will know a scammer irrespective of the new method applied, it's a novice in cryptocurrency sphere can be be easily fall a victims of airdrop scam, because with your intuitive sense, you can as well sense a negativity and positivity of good project.

Op i disagree with a concept that stipulates everything that is free is scam.
If I have 3 apples 1$ each if I gave one free and charge 2$ from 2nd person and 3$ from 3rd person and 2nd person feeling like my apple value is 3$ yay isn't it a scam? truth is harsh and not easy to accept but we have to accept it will not last long until legit dealing's were made.
what scammers do they create a coin in 2 hrs create certain million tokens do free giveaway/airdrops etc take as much investment as they want leave it takes max 2 hrs to do it again why? because they know it will end tomorrow why not today?

Every valuable thing given free is a scam because community is investing its not your money but due to greed people ignore it.

Newbies are most exposed to these kind of scams and now its getting trend slowly people are getting rekt with time and most importantly scamming is not good for scammer too, but they dont have ability to see outside their nest.

Emotion's are backing Bitcoin & Humans are due to emotions.
Then how People will stop buying it.

I disagree with this as many projects do airdrops at early stages, when they don't have any remarkable value. that was the situation for example with Ripple and now it's one of the top cryptos what comes to the market cap.
