Energi bureau of investigations is opening a bounty against cybercriminality
By Inkarias - 2020-02-07
Recently, Energi’s Bureau of Investigations has reported a dramatic uptick in cybercriminal efforts targeting the Energi community using this particular modus operandi. To help counter this, Energi is announcing a bounty of up to 5000 NRG for information leading to the arrest and conviction of scammers impersonating Energi team members.
How scammers process
These fraudsters often work in one of a few ways. They may pretend to be Energi team members by mimicking the usernames, avatars, and discriminators (the 4 digits after a Discord username). On Telegram, impersonators may have only a slight difference from a known team member. Next, they will offer private technical support via DM, OTC (over the counter) deals, or other similar methods, all with the aim to steal people’s NRG.
