Aptos-Users of cryptocurrencies can use the Revoke.cash service to remove the authorization of transactions (or allowances) on significant on-chain services. Here is how scammers are utilizing a copy of this service to con cryptocurrency users.
Fraudsters have begun a Twitter campaign targeted at the Aptos blockchain community, a recently formed blockchain (APT). Holders of APT are urged to determine if “attackers” have access to their wallets.
Unsurprisingly, there has never been a hack on the Aptos (APT) blockchain. Additionally, the Revoke.cash service does not currently support the Aptos (APT) blockchain despite supporting more than 30 networks.
Scammers created a website that closely resembles the look of the actual service and its associated Twitter account in order to fool APT holders. For the website’s and the Twitter account’s names, the scammers used e in place of the letter e and an in place of the letter.
The bogus website was registered through an unidentified U.S. registrator, according to information provided by public whois services, and has been operational for at least 24 hours.
Numerous fraud attempts are focusing on new blockchains
Such websites are typically made to propagate trojans and other malware as well as steal passwords and key phrases from blockchain accounts.
Therefore, it is best to avoid any interactions with clone websites, let alone providing them with personal information or information about your blockchain account. Aggressive schemes target emerging blockchains like Aptos (APT), Sui Network, and others.
The most typical scam in this area is fake airdrop efforts. Users are looking for comparable possibilities and falling prey to con artists because they are motivated by the success of Optimism (OP) and Aptos (APT) airdrop receivers.
