Mark Risher, who works as a director of product management at Google, has been battling email scams for a long time, and now he claims that attack that are directed at crypto holders are on the rise. Google’s fraud-fighter reveals that even big names in the tech world can become the target of criminals.

First, criminals may track your posts on a message board and then they will try to compromise your email account. Getting access to your personal email is very important for them since it may provide a direct access to your wallet, Risher claims.

Therefore, the best solution is to resist the temptation to publicly brag about how much crypto you own.
