Coconut Creek Police Department Scam Alert

July 1, 2022

Coconut Creek, Fla. – Cryptocurrency scams are the basis of this Coconut Creek Police Department Scam Alert. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with cryptocurrency, it is basically a digital form of currency that is unregulated by central authorities. Bitcoin is probably the most notable example. Recently a Coconut Creek man filed a report after the scam artists used a “phishing” scheme to get all the necessary information they needed to take over his cryptocurrency wallet and empty it into their pockets. Phishing scams are where the fraudsters pretend to be someone they’re not so they can convince you to give them information that you shouldn't, such as passwords or account numbers. Cryptocurrency may be a new concept to many people but the bad guys will use the same old tried but true methods to scam you.
