Recently a vast majority of crypto investors were scammed by a website (bit-give.xyz/airdrop/claim/claim/) by offering fake blockchain airdrop of up to 5 BTC, once they typed their wallet address, followed by highly confidential recovery phrase of 12 words, and email address.
The scam site opens like this:
Once you type your credentials, the page will appear like this congratulating you over winning airdrop of 2.5 BTC and will ask you to keep balance of at least 0.01 BTC in your wallet:
According to their claim, once you deposit the required amount of BTC, your airdrop fortune of 2.5 btc will be automatically added to your wallet. But unfortunately it is not what is going to happen. The moment you realise that the offer is not credited on your wallet you will definitely contact the contact email given (firstname.lastname@example.org), which will in turn become an alarm for the scammers who are ready for reap with your secret recovery phrase to steal your full balance sending it to their crypto addresses.
After claiming your cherished fortune they will send you another scam mail as a reply to your mail that will say if you invest 0.035 btc they will deposit 12 btc including all your deposit and offers. The wicked team claim themselves as blockchain team, which is deliberately a false claim.
