As WOO Network begins to make a big impact in the crypto community, more and more hackers, scammers, and impersonators are targeting both WOO X and non-WOO X users.
Here are some examples that have been frequently reported by our community.
1. Fake website
In this example, the scammers created a website and mobile version to build trust with victims. Most of the links look like this:
Most of our victims are directed to this site by impersonators. Once you log in and try to deposit, your tokens are gone, and your credentials will also be recorded.
If you’ve experienced logging in to a website like this, we will suggest that you take the following steps to secure your account:
1) Scan your computer for viruses, key loggers, spyware, and other malicious code using antivirus software with updated virus definitions.
2) Change the password for the email address associated with your WOO X account.
3) Do not log in to a public computer such as net cafés or LAN centers, or use public Wifi to your WOO X account. Only use your WOO X account on a secured computer and a trusted internet environment.
4) Make sure you have enabled Google Authenticator(“GA”) for the second level of security applied to your account, making it harder for your account to fall into the wrong hands.
2. Chat Channels(What’s app, Telegram, Discord)
There is also an abundance of reports that there are impersonators in our community who try to offer support or promotion.
Recently, we noticed that scammers are creating fake telegram groups, impersonating the admins or even the most active users of the official groups to apply scams. Be aware that WOO X will never do airdrops through the Telegram group or ask for anything that could compromise your tokens.
Please note, WOO X support will never be the first to direct message you and offer any kind of service. Most of the time our support will only reply in the group channel for basic questions. If the issue needs a further look into the account, we will only ask you to message us with the UID/email or submit a ticket.
Last but not least,
We have prepared several tips and reminders to help you to keep your WOO X account safe from scammers:
- Never give out your private key — the private key gives full access to your wallet, WOO admins and customer support won’t ever ask for your private key.
- Only you (or a trusted other) should know about your private key.
- Keep your private key safe — preferably write it down and store it in a safe place.
- Never give out your username and password — WOO admins and customer support won’t ever ask for your password or private key. You risk losing your account by giving away your username and password.
- Don't click random links — scammers may try to DM links that lead to malicious sites and these sites may:
- Attempt to install malware on your system
- Trick you into giving up your username or password
