- Twitter PwC in Venezuela now has over 37,000 followers.
- Links to a website pretending to represent Ripple and offering free XRP.
PricewaterhouseCoopers Venezuela Twitter account It was hacked and used to advertise a fake cryptocurrency giveaway. The Twitter account started the blatant hoax at 2:13AM UTC by sending links to a website pretending to represent ripple And offering XRP is free. So far, I’ve repeated the same link 14 times.
Typical cryptocurrency scams involve asking victims to contribute money with the promise of a greater return in the form of cryptocurrency. All the tweets were visible for a long time, indicating that the owner of the account either didn’t realize they were being scammed or had lost their password.
Worrying about the new editing feature
The Twitter account of PwC Venezuela was subsequently deleted from the posts. Experts are concerned that Twitter’s new “Edit Tweet” feature could open the platform to a large number of scams. Although the main PwC account had 189,200 followers, PricewaterhouseCoopers Venezuela The account only contains 37100.
Investors who follow the links, risk falling victim to hacker scam. Given that PwC’s Twitter feed in Venezuela now has more than 37,000 followers, the risk could be devastating if not quickly neutralized. Phishing attempts often use Unicode characters that look very similar to those found in legitimate URLs to deceive potential victims.
Concerns have been raised over whether Twitter’s recent announcement that it will test a new feature that allows users to change tweets for a short period after posting might promote malicious activity like that observed on the PwC Venezuela account.
Experts believe that if a tweet becomes popular, the original tweeter may change the link to another that steals personal information or leads others to fraud.
