Crypto Frauds Exploit YouTube with Fake Videos – Act Now!

Von admin

• YouTube is becoming a haven for crypto fraud due to the large number of fraudulent videos that appear legitimate.
• These videos are likely operated by the same scam network, which consists of about 30 people who use applications like Telegram to communicate and/or run their operations.
• The group has copied and pasted comments from other YouTube videos onto their own in order to appear more real, recommending fraud-based applications and other thief-controlled platforms to garner funds.

Growing Number of Crypto Scams on YouTube

A new report from digital security firm With Secure Inc. reveals that YouTube is quickly becoming a popular platform for those looking to orchestrate crypto scams and steal money from unsuspecting victims.

How Do Crypto Scams Work?

The majority of these fraudulent platforms appear genuine at first due to high numbers of likes and comments they receive. It’s estimated that these are all fake and made up by a network of around 30 people who use applications like Telegram to communicate and/or run their operations. They have also been known to copy and paste comments from other YouTube videos onto their own so as to make them look more legitimate. In addition, they advertise fraud-based applications or thief-controlled platforms with the goal of gathering funds from unsuspecting investors.

Are These Scams Profitable?

According to Andy Patel, an intelligence researcher at With Secure, these particular scams are not believed to be very profitable but they have managed „to game YouTube’s recommendation algorithms by using a straightforward approach“. This means that even though many people may realize they’re being taken advantage of, it can still be hard for social media platforms like YouTube to monitor content effectively when it comes down to spotting scams such as these.

What Is Tether?

Many of these schemes center around the digital currency Tether (USDT), which is a popular stable coin used for trading across multiple exchanges. However, since USDT is pegged 1:1 with the US dollar, its value doesn’t fluctuate as much compared with other cryptocurrencies – making it more attractive for scammers looking for small but consistent profits over time rather than big payouts in one go.


With crypto scams becoming ever more common on social media platforms such as YouTube, it’s important for users (especially investors) to stay vigilant and informed about what they’re investing in or downloading – especially if something looks too good to be true!
