Action Fraud, the U.K national police report has discovered that British cryptocurrency users have lost more than GBP 2 million in the last two months mainly due to crypto fraud. The losses are especially from scams consisting of social media channels which are reporting ‘get rich quick’ investment opportunities.

Action fraud gathered the data of June and July 2018 and presented that the scammed British cryptocurrency users on average lost GBP 11,000 in fake mining transfers and uncertain trading scams online.

We all know that a large number of users are caught in Online trading scams where profits on the already existing bitcoin are guaranteed. However, fraud mining scams are also famous among the crypto-criminals.

This is different when compared with account being hacked as users are forced consistently investing in the mining scams.

The report has provided all the issues of cybercrime faced by British cryptocurrency users. Also, it is guiding users on what they should be aware of. The Action Fraud Report was unveiled on Friday and it is gaining the attention of the current state of crypto-crime in the UK by saying:

“Fraudsters will convince victims to sign up to cryptocurrency investment websites and to part with their personal details such as credit card details and driving licenses to open a trading account. The victim will then make an initial minimum deposit, after which the fraudster will call them to persuade them to invest again in order to achieve a greater profit.”

British users filed 203 reports to the Action project in the last two months that is situated at the national crypto crime reporting center. The Action Fraud Report is the part of the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) and is linked to the City of London Police.

Pauline Smith, who is the director of the Action Fraud Project said that the British users needed to be more alert while looking for crypto investment opportunities. He stated, “It’s vital for anyone who invests or is thinking of investing in cryptocurrencies to thoroughly research the company they are choosing to invest with.”
