Bitcoin scam related to the Corona virus

As I mentioned before, there is a lot going on in the cyberspace related to the Corona virus.

Unfortunately, many of the things circulating are scams or information that direct to malware.

This is an email circulating currently in massive waves in various languages (here in German):

 

Hallo Sorin Mustaca

Falls Sie es noch nicht gehört haben – Bitcoin wird voraussichtlich vor Ende des Jahres über 100.000 Euro erreichen! Das ist 5mal höher als der Höchststand von 2017.

Die Prognosen beruhen auf der Ankündigung großer Unternehmen wie Facebook und Uber, dass sie dieses Jahr in die Krypto-Arena einsteigen werden.

Wir bieten Ihnen einen Platz auf unserer privaten Anlageplattform – Sie können Ihr kostenloses Konto sofort registrieren und Ihre Reise noch heute beginnen.

Ihre Investitionskosten: 250$

Erstellen Sie ein kostenloses Konto

 

Freundliche Grüße

BTC-Era

They are requesting me to invest 250$ in BTC with the promise that by the end of the year a BTC will be 100K EUR worth.

Stay away from such platforms … 🙂
