Shiba Inu holders on Telegram receive a critical warning that would ensure the safety of their crypto assets as they use social media.
ShibArmy scam alerts, or Susbarium, an X page dedicated to uncovering scams, have alerted the Shiba Inu community to the presence of scammers on Telegram. Shiba Inu holders are warned to beware of scammers who send direct messages (DMs) on Telegram.
Susbarium reports that it has learned of scammers operating on Telegram DMs, targeting unsuspecting users of the Shiba Ecosystem and Shibarium Tech groups.
These scammers often act as reputable individuals or organizations, seeking to trick users into revealing personal information, financial information or even sending money.
Shiba Inu users should be aware of these Telegram accounts and report them as well as block them. This is to prevent others from becoming victims of such schemes.
Tips to stay safe
Susbarium outlines four ways in which Shiba Inu holders could stay safe as the activities of social media scammers proliferate.
The first step is to confirm the identity. Before communicating, they should always confirm the identity of the individual or entity. They could verify official website links or social media profiles.
The second step is to be skeptical. Shiba Inu holders should be cautious of unsolicited messages, especially those soliciting money or personal information. Scammers frequently utilize convincing tactics; therefore, it is important to remain watchful and wary.
The third goal is to safeguard sensitive information. Shiba Inu holders should avoid sharing personal data such as their address, phone number or financial information, at all costs. They must never send money or cryptocurrency in response to Telegram solicitations. This is because genuine entities will not request such information over Telegram DMs.
Finally, before acting, investment claims should be verified through official channels. The DYOR, or "do your own research" mantra, which emphasizes the need to cultivate critical sensibility, may be applicable in this scenario.
