The Recent Bitcoin Scam on Twitter

In the News


The FBI has launched an investigation after hackers hijacked Twitter accounts of a number of high-profile US figures in an apparent Bitcoin scam.

when the news popped up in my feed, I didn’t think much of it, as I didn’t think the bitcoin community would fall for an obvious spam comment from the likes of Bill Gates stating "Everyone is asking me to give back. You send $1,000, I send you back $2,000."

However, according to the available records, more than $100,000 (£80,000) siphoned off in the short period

I guess people were hoping for miracles. Atm bitcoin isn’t flying high as it was previously (currently about £7300 = 1 bitcoin), but I am sure things will change

I read it was quite wide scale, with high profile people involved. It's a bit suspect, probably an internal issue with Twitter?
