Biggest Cyber Scam!

A 34-year-old woman lost Rs 4.47cr in this scam. She received a call from an individual claiming to be associated with the narcotics division.

The imposter informed her that a substantial amount of drugs had been found in a FedEx courier linked to her.
To complicate matters, the fraudsters posed as officials from different authorities such as the Andheri police station, RBI, Mumbai Police DCP, customs, and even the Narcotics division.

They spun a complex web of lies to deceive the victim.
The fraudsters manipulated and pressured the victim into surrendering her entire account balance.

They used psychological tactics, making her believe that non-compliance would lead to legal consequences.

It's scary how dependent I've become on technology & infrastructure. Let's both try to do a few things in 2023 to make ourselves less dependent so we can survive it all suddenly disappearing. We don't have to be a full-blown prepper but let's make sure we have the basics 🙏
The recent @LastPass hack has really opened my eyes learning a hard lesson watching someone I don't know from a country I've never been to lock me out of my money, ability to work, investments, communication in just a few moments & I felt completely powerless to do anything.
What happens when you try to buy food or medicine and get arrested for fake ID & identity theft when you're the real person? What if you can't get into your own home because your biometric lock says 'no'? We're becoming way too dependent on technology that is very vulnerable.

I have no sympathies for #Scammers who were duping people with lakhs and crores of screenshots.

At first, I along with friends of mine were in awe of how they were generating this much return. For almost, 2 years I worked a lot and tried to break the code.

Do read and retweet.
A lot of ideas were worked upon on Amibroker may it be ITM Selling of Option, Option Doublers in 2 - 3 days, Intraday Option Buying, Future Holygrail and what not. In the process we were able to make Option Chain on Amibroker, calculate option greeks on Amibroker and what not.
But no definite system was built.

If we cracked up Option Buying or burst moves, it was difficult to ascertain position-sizing. For eg. position sizing average size, doesn't make the profit so lucrative. And if the position-size is big, loss could be 70% in 3 trades.

Crypto giveaway scams continue to soar: Group-IB has noted a fivefold increase in the number of domains used for #crypto giveaway #scams that involve fake #YouTube streams in the first half of 2022:

According to Group-IB, 63% of the new fraudulent domain names were registered with Russian registrars, but the #fake websites are primarily designed to target English and Spanish-speaking #crypto investors in the US and other countries:
In the first six months of 2022, @CERTGIB identified more than 2,000 domains registered explicitly to be used as #fake promotion websites. This figure increased almost five-fold compared to the second half of 2021 and 53-fold in comparison with H1 2021:

What is one of the biggest areas holding back mainstream #crypto & #NFT adoption?

The answer: Wallets suck ☠️

Here’s 4 #features that we need to see in #Crypto #Wallets before we get adoption from #Web2 users.

1⃣ Anti-Wallet Drain Preferences

All wallets need to add this feature.

A toggle that is on by default, which prevents you from signing any #transaction that will give #scammers the ability to #drain your wallet.
🧵 (1/14)
If you can lose everything from one click, the space will never grow.

In addition to this, when signing a transaction like this, it needs a big red warning of what functions you are approving and what you currently have in your wallet ⚠️

Blockchain adventurer's log (BAL)#7


Back when I visited @poocoinapp to track small cap coin, I casually connected my wallet to the website only to witness a total wallet balance of $100K+.
Via the website and wallet's details, I saw the 2 culprits.
"" and "" were pumping my bags by $50K+ each.
Was I richer overnight?

I shoulda known. Arizona fraudit leader Kelli Ward is a colleague of Roger Stone. (How much damage as that one evil man caused?) 1/…
2/ “Stone…tweeted last week that he would be working for Ward…Stone's tweet, which Ward's Twitter account retweeted, said: ‘I will be working for @kelliwardaz - GOP Primary- August-Kiss @JohnMcCain goodbye’”…
3/ I have no idea if it’s related. But Roger Stone & Kelli Ward are both big supporters of the Bundy family. Remember that big armed standoff between the Bundys & the federal government?…

How to fleece ETH out of the NFT community. 🧵
Use ape or punk pfp to engagement farm and amass a large group of followers. Create hype and mystery for your "new game changer project" with vague details and/or Whitelist opportunities.
Use your frens and/or other ape/punk community to help promote your "insane project" pre launch.   Do a real giveaway of some other community's NFT that you are already bagholding to establish "legitimacy".  Run annoying discord invite competition to inflate discord the numbers.
Hire sketchy devs from other failed projects or rugs, or fiverr, or just give artdude 55 ETH.
Copy all the traits from BAYC onto your own shitty cartoon characters or better yet, just create multiples of one "token".

1. Holders
Go to etherscan and put in address. On the page you just opened, look at the "Holders" list. The biggest holders of a coin should always be the liquidity pool which is usually identified as "Uniswap: COIN NAME" and the dead coins’ wallet, usually...
usually identified as "0x000000000000000000000000000000000000dead". Why is this important? It reduces the possibility of a #rugpull to almost zero, especially if the dead coins’ wallet is over 50%.
Also watch out if there are too many whales 🐳
For example, 10 wallets each holding 3% of total coins is a huge red flag. Abort immediately. A healthy new coin should also have at least 200-300 holders. If it doesn't, also abort immediately. ❌

👆#TurnKey,Inc.: #SEC turning the (same)key in the lock

Surprised that commentators think there is anything new in this decision. It is simply a different type of argumentation. It is for the first time a #negative #definition of #ICO #regulation by #securities#laws. Thread👇
👉1. In Munchee Inc., SEC claims (…):
⛔️Munchee has no viable product
⛔️tokens sold are not usable, but will possibly be in the future
⛔️ICO will fund the development of the project
⛔️MUN price will vary AND reasonable expectation of future profits
⛔️#profits (or losses) depend solely on efforts of #Munchee #managers
⛔️#marketing MUN token in the manner to induces the purchasers to believe there is a profit expected solely for buying MUN and reselling it later.
⚠️a positive definition -> this IS a security
