Dogecoin (DOGE), the largest dog-themed cryptocurrency by market capitalization, continues to gain popularity as crypto adoption becomes more widespread.

However, amid the excitement surrounding DOGE, there has been a surge in airdrop scams targeting unsuspecting community members. As the popularity of DOGE continues to soar, community members need to remain vigilant and informed about potential scams posing as legitimate airdrops.

In this light, vocal  Dogecoin community member Mishaboar issues a warning about several fake airdrops, some targeting Dogecoin and many others targeting other currently popular meme and AI tokens, promising airdrops.

Mishaboar considers them all schemes to steal users' cryptocurrency. He cautions the Dogecoin community to stay away from dubious accounts, some of which might be huge and seem legitimate while often having tens of thousands of fake followers.

Over the weekend, Mishaboar issued a similar warning to the Dogecoin community, urging them to stay away from the dogechain.com domain, which was previously used for spoofing the .info website, resulting in people exposing their emails and passwords.

Other tips to stay safe

Crypto users can follow these measures to stay safe and secure their crypto investments.

First, crypto users should be cautious of unsolicited messages or emails claiming to offer free tokens through an airdrop. Legitimate projects typically announce airdrops through official channels and provide clear instructions for participation.

Second, crypto holders should never share their private keys or seed phrases with anyone claiming to facilitate airdrops. Scammers often use this information to gain unauthorized access to user wallets and, in the process, steal funds.

Lastly, they should verify the legitimacy of crypto projects by conducting thorough research. In this regard, information about the team, the project roadmap and community engagement might be essential to assessing the project's credibility.
