Non-standard approach: crypto investors are deceived through comments on YouTube

Published

Kaspersky Lab experts spoke about a non-standard fraud scheme that has appeared on the network, when a fake cryptocurrency exchanger is promoted with the help of YouTube.

Non-standard approach: crypto investors are deceived through comments on YouTube

Attackers choose popular videos and leave comments under them. In them, they talk about the fact that supposedly there is a failure on the exchange, which allows you to exchange cryptocurrency ten times more profitable.

To make messages more visible, scammers raise their rating and add bot responses to them. Their goal is to lure users to a separate YouTube channel with video instructions on how to capitalize on this failure. According to the authors of the video, the benefit is tenfold in relation to the current, normal exchange rate due to a “mistake” with a comma separating integer and decimal numbers.

According to experts, such channels mainly publish one video, which already raises suspicions. In addition, it is clearly false: the changes made to the series of exchange rates are visible to the naked eye, and comments on them contain overly enthusiastic reviews. The link under the video leads to a fake exchanger. If you go through it, a service for exchanging cryptocurrency appears on the screen. You should not use it: the money will fall into the hands of scammers and cannot be returned.

Mikhail Sytnik, Leading Content Analyst at Kaspersky Lab, explained:

Crypto investors are increasingly being targeted by cybercriminals. We also see that the method of finding victims through YouTube comments is gaining momentum. Therefore, we strongly recommend that owners of digital assets carefully check specialized resources before using them, and do not trust too tempting offers either on a popular video hosting or anywhere else on the Internet.
