Scammers send fake crypto CEO to business meetings!

-Patrick Hillman, chief communications officer at Binance, the worlds largest exchange by volume for trading cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin, wrote in a blog post that he had received several online messages thanking him for taking the time to meet with project teams regarding potential opportunities to list their assets on Binance.com, which he found odd because he doesn’t have any oversight of or insight into Binance listings, nor had he met with any of these people before.

-It turns out that someone had created a “deepfake” version of Hillman and was using it to try and scam people.

-Deepfakes are a type of artificial intelligence that can create realistic, fake videos or images of people that can be used for malicious purposes.

-Hillman is warning people to be aware of deepfakes and to be careful of any messages or requests for meetings that they receive from people they don’t know.
