Have you ever received a similar message and wondered why you got it, or how it could be a scam? Read on, if you have.
The idea behind a scam like this is to entice you to sign up for their fake exchange - what's the point?
They want to farm your credentials to try on other exchanges (real ones) and/or steal your crypto and/or try your credentials on other websites, e.g banking, emails etc. Once you've signed up to their fake exchange, they'll also request you deposit real crypto into it to 'verify' your account, which they'll simply take. You will not receive the 'winnings'.
These guys are relentless, they won't give up and won't hesitate to steal everything you have. This is one of the biggest scams we see while working at DNDW.
If you have signed up to this exchange, we recommend the following:
If you have used an email address with a completely new password, meaning never used before - you are okay.
If you have used an email address and a password you have used before - change your password/email combos they will now have access to your accounts. Most importantly start with your email account, then crypto exchanges, then banking accounts, and finally general accounts.
If you have gotten to the point where you deposited crypto - that crypto is gone. Unfortunately you will not get that back. The best thing you can do is accept the loss and move on.
If you have submitted any form of ID for verification - treat it as though your wallet/ID has been stolen. Make a police report, so if your identity is stolen for fraud, they are already aware it may not be you.
