Beware of fake crypto apps!

– 244 people have lost $42.7 million to fake cryptocurrency apps so far.
– The apps use the same logos and identifying information as legitimate crypto companies to defraud investors.
– One case saw cyber criminals convincing victims to download an app that used the same logo as an actual U.S. financial institution, and then defrauding them of $3.7 million.
– Another case saw cybercriminals operating under the company name “YiBit” defrauding at least four victims of $5.5 million.
– The FBI has recommended that crypto investors be wary of unsolicited requests to download investment apps, and to verify that an app is legitimate before downloading it.
