What is ICO Scam?
An ICO scam is a practice by malicious cryptocurrency promoters who vanish with investors’ money during or after an ICO. The scam story is simple: promoters launch a new cryptocurrency platform based on a promising concept; the ICO then raises money from various investors; the business may or may not run for some time; and then the promoters who had collected the ICO money disappear, leaving the investors in the lurch. Due to the decentralized, anonymous, and regulation-free operations of the virtual currency ecosystem, it is difficult to trace scammers who dupe the investors.
What is Phishing Attack?
Phishing is a type of social engineering where an attacker sends a fraudulent (e.g., spoofed, fake, or otherwise deceptive) message designed to trick a human victim into revealing sensitive information to the attacker or to deploy malicious software on the victim's infrastructure like ransomware.
