Scammer has launched a phishing site that targets the users of “Solana killer” Aptos (APT)
- “Solana killer” Aptos is not broke: don’t fall for this scam
- New blockchains targeted by dozens of scam campaigns
The Revoke.cash service is designed to help cryptocurrency users revoke transaction authorization (or allowance) on major on-chain services. Here’s how thieves are attempting to scam cryptocurrency users with a copy of this service.
“Solana killer” Aptos is not broke: don’t fall for this scam
Today, on November 12, 2022, scammers began running a community-focused Twitter campaign of the newly launched blockchain Aptos (APT). APT holders are asked to check if the “attackers” have access to their wallets.
It goes without saying that the Aptos (APT) blockchain has never been breached. Also, despite supporting over 30 networks, the Revoke.cash service does not yet support the Aptos blockchain (APT).
To confuse APT holders, the scammers have launched a website that closely mirrors the design of the legitimate service and its corresponding Twitter account. The scammers created similar names for the website and Twitter account – they used them And instead of And, And a instead of or.
According to data from public whois services, the fraudulent website ran for at least 24 hours and was registered via an anonymous US recorder.
New blockchains targeted by dozens of scam campaigns
Typically, such websites are designed to steal passwords and key phrases from blockchain accounts, as well as to spread Trojans and other malware.
Therefore, it is best to avoid any interaction with clone websites, let alone sharing personal data or blockchain account details with them.
As explained earlier by U.Today, next-generation blockchains like Aptos (APT), Sui Network and others are being targeted by aggressive scams.
Fake airdrop campaigns are the most common type of scam here. Inspired by the success of the Optimism (OP) and Aptos (APT) airdrop recipients, users seek similar opportunities and fall victim to scammers.
