      Please be advised of a reported cryptocurrency scam involving a website called, falsely promoting a Bitcoin giveaway. Victims are lured with the promise of free Bitcoin, only to find themselves ensnared in a sophisticated deception.

      Scam Details:

      • Scam Website:
      • Tactic: Victims are told they have won $10,000 in Bitcoin and are directed to the site to claim it. The site appears legitimate and displays a wallet balance.
      • Catch: Upon attempting to withdraw the funds, victims are told they must first become “verified” and are asked to send $202 to “unlock” their wallet.
      • Communication: Victims who engage with the site’s chat feature are contacted by someone named “Sam,” who attempts to facilitate the scam.

      Victim Experience:

      • Location: IA, USA- 50169
      • Personal Information Compromised: Legal name, email address, and potentially IP information.
      • Follow-Up: After requesting account closure, the victim began receiving non-stop emails about various money-receiving schemes, none of which were directed to spam.

      Important Information for OSINT Investigations:

      • Email Associated with Scam:
      • Request for Funds: Victims are asked to send money to become “verified.”
      • Lack of Withdrawal: There is no option for users to close their accounts independently; the website states you must contact them to have your account closed.

      If you or someone you know has been targeted or fallen victim to this scam, please share your story. Any additional information, such as transaction IDs, wallet addresses, or communication logs with the scammers, can be instrumental in OSINT investigations and help prevent future victims. Remember, legitimate giveaways or promotions will never require you to send money to receive a prize.

      Stay vigilant and always verify the legitimacy of any too-good-to-be-true offers, especially those involving cryptocurrency.
