Recent reports by blockchain security company Certik have uncovered a big cryptocurrency scam that cheated users out of almost $743,000.
Victims have pointed fingers at an individual who goes by the name “AltLex”, who was reported to have been promoting a fake token on social media.
According to Certik, AltLex used tricky tactics to divert investors away from the real Linea token connected to the Ethereum scaling solution.
Soon after getting the illegally obtained money from unsuspecting victims, the scammer quickly transferred the whole amount to the controversial crypto mixer Tornado Cash.
This platform has been involved in controversy lately over claims it facilitates money laundering.
While the identities of the victims in this Linea scam are unknown, Certik’s investigation is ongoing, and more details on this scam are expected to come out soon.
However, investors and the cryptocurrency community are strongly urged to exercise extreme caution and conduct thorough due diligence before engaging in any blockchain-based projects.
