  • icon icon Bank Scams

    When fraudsters send out official-looking emails, letters, or even text messages giving the impression that they are from your banking institution. They may ask for personal information, say your account has been compromised, or request you move money to a new account they will help you set up

  • icon icon Cryptocurrency Scams

    These fraudsters misrepresent items online or fail to deliver items after buyers have paid. The goal here is to make it look like a natural delivery failure due to human error when in reality the cash paid for the product was already stolen.

  • icon icon Internet Dialer Scams

    This is when a person’s computer settings are changed, and their internet connection is re-routed via an expensive phone line. This can happen when a person opens a spam email or clicks a pop-up box.

    Founder & CEO, Strategic Security

    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!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

NFT scams refer to fraudulent activities within the NFT space where scammers deceive individuals by creating fake NFTs, unauthorized NFT giveaways, phishing scams, pump-and-dump schemes, or counterfeit NFT collections.

NFT marketplaces are online platforms where individuals can buy, sell, and trade non-fungible tokens (NFTs). These marketplaces provide a platform for artists, creators, and collectors to engage in NFT transactions.

Common NFT scams include fake NFT listings, phishing scams targeting NFT accounts or platforms, pump and dump schemes, bidding scams, rug pull scams and counterfeit NFTs. It is crucial to stay informed about the most common NFT scams to protect yourself from falling victim to fraudulent activities.

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.

A phishing scam in the context of NFTs involves scammers attempting to trick individuals into revealing sensitive information, such as private wallet keys or login credentials, by posing as legitimate NFT marketplaces, projects, or accounts. 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.

If you've been scammed in a fake NFT incident on a marketplace, take immediate action. Document the incident and report it to the marketplace's customer support. Contact local law enforcement and seek assistance from a reputable cybersecurity company specializing in fraud investigations. Time is crucial, so act swiftly to maximize the chances of recovering your funds. You can also schedule a consultation at TechForing for expert guidance.
