Stay wary of “celebrities”
When scammers aren’t impersonating family members, they may try their hand at celebrities.
Chris Hauk, a consumer privacy champion at Pixel Privacy, told Express.co.uk people should stay especially wary of tweets.
He said: “Be wary of tweets and other social networking posts that appear to be from celebrities claiming that they are giving cryptocurrency.
“Of course, they’ll ask for money, saying they’ll send you back more money.”
