Paid Scam Twitter Adverts

Today we conduct an investigation into Paid Scam Twitter Adverts.

We’ve already documented multiple cases where Twitter has been a central point of unique types of identity theft, phishing, and various types of fraud.

You can find our previous alerts here.

Reported to us, this one is particularly interesting as here is a new type of scam going on Twitter right now that is using “legitimate” Twitter ads coupled with major cryptocurrency brands such as Coinbase to use the legitimacy of these brands and gain more attention. These Paid Scam Twitter Adverts are currently doing the rounds on the social media giant’s network and duping unsuspecting users.
