Enjoying a fun mobile game is a great way to relax and escape reality, but unfortunately, some games target their audience with scams. The FBI has issued a warning about ongoing mobile game scams involving cryptocurrency.

Bonding with Potential Victims

According to the FBI, these scammers start by bonding with potential victims. They introduce them to a mobile game where players earn cryptocurrency rewards for completing tasks. However, the scammers trick players into purchasing cryptocurrency and depositing it into a wallet to participate in the game. When victims stop depositing funds, criminals use a malicious program to drain their wallets.

Stay Alert

Mobile game scams are familiar, but they are currently on the rise, making it challenging to keep track of these fraudulent activities. The FBI advises players to be cautious and avoid such actions. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Don’t let scammers ruin the fun of mobile gaming.

Previous Incidents

This is not the first time that the FBI has had to warn the public about mobile game scams. Last year, the FBI stated that North Korea-based hackers were behind the $625 million Axie Infinity heist. Stay alert and enjoy mobile gaming safely!
