Scammers Hijack Verified Twitter Account To Steal Crypto By Posing As Telegram CEO

The founder and CEO of Telegram and its TON Initial Coin Offering (ICO) Pavel Durov tweeted a warning on Saturday, Apr 28, telling his followers that the messaging app is experiencing downtime due to its server clusters overheating. Durov’s tweet drew the attention of fake crypto giveaway scammers who have claimed, posing as Telegram’s CEO, to offer crypto to users as a “thank you for [their] support.”

According to a report by Cointelegraph’s partner BlockShow Sunday, Apr 29, Durov is not giving away any crypto and users are advised against interacting in any way with the scammers.
