Impersonators Continue to Hit Twitter
Bitsonline is being impersonated on Twitter by a person going by the handle @bitsonlnecom. Bitsonline.com‘s official Twitter handle is @bitsonlinecom. If you look carefully, you will notice that the fake account is missing an ‘I’ in the name. The ETH giveaways the fake account @bitsonlnecom are offering are a scam. We want to warn our users not to respond to the fake account. Do not send your ethereum to that promotion – it is a scam.
Scams have become the scourge of the internet and Twitter has been actively shutting known scam accounts down. Unfortunately they cannot get them all and they often take down real accounts by mistake. We are being impersonated by a criminal on Twitter, and it is occurring now. It is another example of why you need to remain vigilant in the crypto space.
A Warning to Our Readers
We warn our users again NOT TO SEND ETH to the fake account at Twitter. Bitsonline.com will never announce an ETH giveaway on Twitter. Any time you see this you are seeing an impersonation. The fake account has been on Twitter since September 2017 and we have been trying to have it removed, to no avail.
The fake account has no followers, is following nobody, and has made 4 tweets. And, of course, they are pretending to be giving away free ETH. All these things are warning signs that the account is operated by a malicious actor with ill intentions.
To repeat: We are being impersonated on Twitter by a person going by the handle @bitsonlnecom. Bitsonline.com‘s official Twitter handle is @bitsonlinecom. The giveaways that @bitsonlnecom are offering are a scam. We want to warn our users not to respond to the fake account.
