London Police Takes Down 43 Fake Crypto Websites.

The police in London have stopped 43 websites pretending to be real crypto websites. These fake crypto websites were trying to trick people into giving them their money or personal information.

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, which is a part of the UK police, discovered that one fake email address was pretending to be from a popular crypto platform called blockchain.com. When they looked into it, they found 42 more fake crypto websites with names like “actionfraud.info” and “department-fraud.com.” The police blocked these websites to protect people from being scammed.

The police are asking anyone targeted by scams online to report it immediately. They have a special way for people to report cybercrimes and want to ensure everyone stays safe online.

Since December 2023, the police have shut down around 300,000 harmful websites that were trying to cheat people online. Some of these websites were promising to give away Tupperware sets as a way to trick people.

Phishing is a big problem in the crypto community, where scammers try to steal people’s money or information. Recently, a popular crypto wallet company called Trezor had a security problem that affected 66,000 users. After that, 41 people said they got fake emails trying to steal their crypto money.

It’s important to be careful online and not trust websites that seem too good to be true. The police are working hard to stop scammers and keep people safe using the internet.
