Ripple CTO warns community about scammers
Ripple CTO David Schwartz warns of potential scams that could exploit the positive news of the lawsuit against the SEC and the popularity of the XRP token. He notes that the decision of the court is not related to the holding of any air drops, draws or special offers.
Schwartz's warning comes from a number of cases of fraud. In March 2020, a fake account of the head of Ripple, Brad Garlinghouse, was discovered on YouTube. The attackers offered users to send from 2 to 500,000 XRP and promised to receive in return from 20,000 to 5 million tokens. In April, Ripple accused video hosting of reputational and brand damage, and in September of deliberate inaction. Also, Twitter users have come across a fake extension for Google Chrome that will steal passphrases to recover passwords. With its help, the scammers managed to steal over 1.4 million XRP.
