"The Merge" Phishing Scams On The Rise
September 14th, 2022

Twitter has been seeing an influx of Vitalik impersonators, with profiles looking exactly as the one and true profile, upon first glance. The kicker? They're all verified to make it even hard to discern for some users. These fake profiles have been circulating phishing attempts ahead of the Merge, hoping to lure someone unsuspecting into the scam. NYC Web3 identified at least 4 fake handles, which also seems to be owned by the same person or group of people, as they are all retweeting each others phishing tweets. Elon Musk recently tweeted the problem, no doubt in an attempt to separate himself even further from his previous takeover plans.

Be careful everyone! And let's be honest, would the Vitalik we know ever push a shill post like this?? Also look twice, before clicking once. That needs to be the new crypto mantra so we don't fall for ignorant scams like these!
