Scammers took advantage of the widespread interest in Apple’s September 14 presentation and launched a fake broadcast promising to hand out cryptocurrency to viewers.
The launch of the fake broadcast took place even before the actual Apple presentation. Fraudsters started streaming on major video hosting portals. Due to the work of the algorithms, it entered the top of the search results. As a result, thousands of users switched to a fake broadcast.
The scammers inserted a video clip with Apple CEO Tim Cook into the stream, as well as a text announcement about a cryptocurrency competition. It was claimed that Apple is ready to give away 1,000 bitcoins and 10,000 Ethereum coins. To allegedly receive them, it was necessary to go to the site and send from 0.1 BTC to the wallet indicated there.
Fortunately, the stream was blocked.
