Unfortunately, my favorite messaging app Telegram, is crawling with degenerate crypto scammers.
This should go without saying but a quick PSA: If ANYONE reaches out to you on Telegram, Discord, Twitter (pick your favorite messaging app) and offers you free crypto, it is likely a scam!
Having said that, there are many of us that do like to give away free crypto.
The difference is, all we will ever ask for is the address we should send crypto to. THAT'S IT.
If the person is building this convoluted scenario of how you can end up with MORE crypto, that is your sign to block that user.
If your Spidey sense is tingling, there's probably a reason. Stay safe out there.
