Fraud information

Scammers use cryptocurrencies, like bitcoin or ether, because they are not easily recovered. Crypto can be sent overseas quickly with limited oversight.

Crypto is a very high-risk and volatile investment. The value can go up or down quickly and there are no guaranteed returns.

If you lose your money to a crypto scam, your money is likely gone. If you buy crypto, only invest what you can afford to lose.

Something doesn’t feel right

You're not sure about:

- the crypto investment offers 'guaranteed' high returns or 'free' money
- crypto service providers that withhold investment earnings for 'tax purposes'
- strange tokens appear in your digital wallet that you did not trade yourself
- there is little paper trail for crypto investments you make
the document describing the crypto investment (sometimes called a ‘whitepaper’) is poorly written or non-existent
- online searches indicate that an entity may be a scam or has bad reviews
- a work from home job offer that requires you to purchase cryptocurrency

What to do before you invest in crypto

Scammers are skilled at convincing people to part with their money by overpromising and using flashy marketing.

Here are some ways to be alert to crypto scams:

Always question social media ads and celebrity endorsements promoting crypto.
Search for the token or crypto exchange name on Google, with the word 'scam', ‘review’ or 'warning'.

Read the whitepaper for new coins.

Check for spelling mistakes. Search for information about people involved in the project. Look for proof of any claims of large partnerships.

Read websites carefully.

Verify listed addresses or phone numbers. Look for spelling mistakes. Be wary of a promise of large instant rewards if you sign up now, or large returns over a short period of time.

Beware of requests for payment in crypto.

It is unlikely that any legitimate financial services firm will ask you to pay exclusively in crypto. Be wary of any recruiter, online romantic partner, or online acquaintance who asks for a crypto payment.
