Recently, SHIB BPP, a popular voice in the Shiba Inu community issued a warning on X (formerly Twitter) about the rise in a scam known as ‘honeypot.’

Honeypot scam promotes opportunities that seem to be very attractive to victims with the intent of deceiving them into investing. They are clever traps designed to fool unsuspecting crypto investors.

SHIB BPP advises due diligence

According to SHIB BPP, honeypot scams come in different forms including bogus websites and social media accounts. They also come in the form of actors that falsely advocate schemes.

The influencer advises the community to be cautious and ‘undertake extensive research’ to confirm the genuineness of the websites and the social media profiles promoting such projects.

Furthermore, he stresses the importance of selecting investments with ‘established credibility’ and also to use well-known crypto exchanges. Some websites that are used to promote scam projects often look like the original ones.

They go as far as using similar domain names with slight differences, sometimes using numbers in place of letters or separating words with a dash (-). Users who are not observant click on these links, connect their wallets to the platform, and end up losing all their held assets.

Sadly, as the crypto market gets ready for a bull run, such websites might become too many targeting users through prominent social media like X and Telegram.

Investors need to protect their assets by investigating thoroughly before making any financial decision. Remember, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
