Some dirty players are using U.Today's brand name to relieve some credulous audience members of their crypto savings.

As it was done previously with other major crypto projects, including Ripple, crypto scammers are impersonating U.Today and saying they are offering a free Ethereum giveaway to celebrate a recent partnership with Apple which, in reality, never happened.

The scammers say that in order to receive a free 2,600 ETH from them, users need to ‘verify’ their addresses. To do that, they have to send in 1-50 ETH first, after which they'll receive 3-150 ETH immediately.
