Investors in Shiba Inu have reportedly been warned by CryptoPotato to be wary of frauds employing dubious non-fungible tokens (NFTs) that promise SHIB rewards. Such offers are blatant scams, according to a Twitter user using by the handle “Shib Informer,” who also warned that running the malware and following the bad actors’ instructions will deplete wallets.
The ‘Shib Informer’ also said that some con artists pose as well-known figures, like Elon Musk, to be associated with these enigmatic propositions. Before beginning such undertakings, they recommended individuals to pay attention to the “small details” and always “check twice.”
Shiba Inu developer Kaal Dharyiahas has also previously warned the community against harmful projects incorporating SHIB‘s logo or its just-launched layer-2 scaling solution, claiming that wrongdoers ‘unethically’ add these symbols to make personal profits. The marketing strategist for Shibarium, LUCIE on Twitter, has also issued a warning against con artists posing as representatives of the L2 solution.
