The victim got scammed after dealing in a giveaway with a luring offer sponsored in a major advertisement on Instagram. Although the victim missed the red flags, and consequently, failed to carry out a due diligence, she transferred 17 ETH ($35.000 at the time) to the scammer’s wallet. However, following the track, she located them in another wallet instead. Despite an immediate request to freeze the scammer’s account, the victim was notified that the matter would further be taken in cooperation with the police. Nevertheless, an investigation has been opened, but any reply is still pending.
