Someone sent $100,000 in BTC to wallet of scammer impersonating Michael Saylor Giveaway
An unknown party sent nearly $100,000 worth of BTC to the wallet of a reported Michael Saylor impersonation scam.

Impersonation scams are a growing threat in the cryptocurrency community, and a large number of victims continue to fall for them.  A recent such example involved the CEO of MicroStrategy, and someone sent two BTC to a fake address using their own name.

In freebie scams, scammers usually impersonate a well-known figure and promote fraudulent campaigns offering to double any Bitcoin sent to their addresses.

It goes without saying that those who fall for the scam never receive any BTC. Although it sounds too good to be true, people are still falling for it.

Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy and a prominent Bitcoin proponent, is one of the most popular names in the crypto industry. It is therefore no surprise that fraudsters often use his name to promote such scams.

The situation with Saylor is slightly more worrying. Scammers continue to create websites using his name in which they claim to double any BTC sent to his address from their personal and corporate safe deposit boxes, which contain billions of dollars.

One such site recently discovered, described by the scam-alert resource, was active throughout December 2021 and had already received $650,000 in BTC.

One particular transaction attracted attention when an unknown entity sent 2 BTC worth almost $100,000 to an address linked to the scam yesterday.

The scam-alert had previously warned of another similar address using the name Saylor that was active in November.  It received more than $1 million in 42 payments throughout the month.
