Crypto swindlers acting like the security pioneer John McAfee to steal Bitcoin and Ethereum from clueless clients. Be that as it may, here’s the kicker: the tricksters are utilizing a new Tesla Model 3 to draw in victims.

“If you send in 2 BTC or 20 ETH, you will get the Grand Prize: a customized Tesla 3 model [sic] signatured [sic] by John Mcafee [sic], delivery included,” a fraudulent Medium post reads.

The site and the records are fake. The URL is obvious, yet the con artists have attempted to camouflage the copycat as a true blue Medium page (however you can even now detect the warnings). The area itself was just enlisted two days back, as per a whois lookup.

The trick guides clients to send a small amount of BTC or ETH to confirm their record, after which they will get a bigger amount of digital money consequently. Sounds like a win-win!

But, this never happens. Normally you’ll give some BTC or ETH, and never get anything consequently. There are huge amounts of remarks guaranteeing heavy benefits, yet these are, obviously, all phony.

What’s more is that the vast majority of the connections on the site are dead. Those that are working simply divert back to the fundamental Medium landing page. Likewise, you can’t remark on the post, to be sure, the greater part of these remarks are hard-coded into the false copycat.

The good thing is it shows up that no one has fallen for the offer of a gleaming new Tesla yet. After checking the Bitcoin and Ethereum wallet addresses advanced in the deceitful post: neither of them have gotten any assets up until this point.

It appears that Musk or McAfee’s names are never far from cryptographic money tricks. Recently, Twitter made a move to square unsubstantiated clients who change their names to Elon Musk.
