One very popular scam these days is Bitcoins Scam where many people ended up losing a lot of money.
I can tell you from my personal experience how fierce this kind of scam is.
One day I was curious about Bitcoin and I made the mistake to register my email address and phone number on a Bitcoin Forum. After I registered I started getting bombarded by phone calls from very aggressive people who wouldn’t listen even when I tell them I am not interested. The phone calls lasted for few days and it was very annoying.
In the beginning I talked to few people and every time I did a search on the internet I found out the companiy was not legit then I stopped answering the phone when the call is from an unknown number. It was very annoying. II was shocked how many scammers are there.
