Phishing Scams

Scammers create fake websites or social media accounts that mimic legitimate NFT platforms or customer support to trick people into sharing their private wallet keys or seed phrases, causing them to lose access to their NFT accounts in the process.

Pump and Dump Scams/Rug Pull Scams

A rug pull scam involves scammers promoting fake NFT projects/NFT collections so that people would invest money in them. Once they receive enough investment or mint enough NFTs, they shut down the project entirely scamming all the investors.

Airdrop scams/Giveaway Scams

Some scammers use NFT marketplaces on social media to promote NFT giveaways, encouraging people to promote their fake NFT projects or sign up on the scammer’s website to win free NFT. However, when it comes to redeeming the free NFTs, the scammers would ask for crypto wallet information and infiltrate the victim’s account to steal their existing NFTs and Cryptocurrency.

Catfishing Scam

Sometimes scammers work together and trick people into buying fraudulent NFTs. Some of them would create fake social media profiles imitating real NFT creators or artists, and redirect people to spam websites, and other scammers create fake tech support accounts. They might ask for account information in messages to provide support and then steal the victim’s credentials and digital assets.

Fake NFT Projects

Scammers would create fake NFTs or copy legitimate artwork and sell the counterfeit versions on reputable marketplaces as original, rare, or limited-edition NFTs to unsuspecting buyers. Fake and counterfeit NFTs have no real value and most of the time the victims find that out when it’s too late after buying the fake NFT.

Ponzi Schemes

The scammers would sometimes promise high returns on NFT investments in the secondary market, but instead, use the new investors’ funds to pay out the earlier investors, eventually leading to a collapse of the whole project.

Bidding Scams

In some NFT auctions, scammers take part in the bidding and become the highest bidder, However, during payment, the scammer switches out the cryptocurrency to one of the lower-value ones, scamming the seller in the process.

    My cryptocurrency got stolen despite it being deemed to be pretty secure. I can understand things happen! Tried law enforcement agencies but got no help, then hired the TechForing team to get my funds back. They traced back the hacker and forced him to return the cash with the same value as the lost crypto. Excellent job indeed!

NFT scams on social media platforms often involve fake NFT projects, giveaway scams, or impersonation of legitimate NFT creators. Scammers may create fraudulent social media accounts, posing as NFT creators, and use deceptive tactics to trick individuals into participating in scams or providing personal information.

To identify legitimate NFT projects, conduct thorough research on the project team, examine the authenticity of their artwork or digital assets, check for community engagement and reputable partnerships, review the project's whitepaper or documentation, and seek independent verification from trusted sources.

If you suspect a scam in an NFT project or marketplace, it is advisable to report it to the customer support of the platform, provide any evidence you have gathered, and alert the wider community about the potential scam. Additionally, you can seek guidance from scam investigation firms or regulatory authorities.

To spot a fake NFT account, carefully examine the account details, such as account creation date, activity, number of followers, and engagement with the community. Look for any suspicious behavior, inconsistent information, or lack of authentication badges that may indicate a fake account.

It is important to be cautious and verify the authenticity of any communication or requests for personal information.

If you come across a fake NFT account or suspicious activity on a marketplace, report it to the marketplace's customer support immediately. Provide detailed information, including the account username, suspicious behavior, and any supporting evidence, to assist in their investigation and protect other users.

To avoid NFT scams, it's important to conduct thorough research on the project, verify the legitimacy of the NFT marketplace, be cautious of free NFT giveaways or airdrop scams, exercise caution in sharing private wallet keys or seed phrases, and rely on reputable platforms, scam investigation firms, or legitimate NFT projects.
