There are 2 major ways hackers use to get your Details, this is done through:
Personal Computer (PC)
1. Personal Computer (PC)
This is one of the easiest scams known as Phishing Scams and Social Engineering.
Here in phishing, they pull personal info from your laptop or PCs to another computer via plugins or other software links that can be maliciously installed. Be careful what you download to your computer and the websites you visit.
Impersonating others using fake emails.
Stealing funds from victims using knock-off cryptocurrency trading websites.
Suggestions to artists' collabs / partnerships making you click on Zoom links to join a meeting or download Zip folders via Google Drive link.
If it sounds too good to be true, it is a scam. Report and Block as soon as possible. Don’t click, don't open up.
To verify a website, check Crunchbase.com, enter the website in the company ‘tab’.
2. Mobile Devices
The way hackers achieve hacking mobile devices is done by SIM card swapping. Unfortunately, there are no ways to prevent SIM card swaps. The reason for this is because these are inside jobs that are run by organised crime syndicates. Here, the hackers are able to get your cell phone company to port your phone number to their own phone.
Once achieved, hackers can get access to any info they wish to have from SMS verification, 2-factor authentication (2FA) apps, from here they can use these tools to break into your emails, change your 2FA and other access as they lock you out of your account permanently, they can have access to everything on your i-Cloud as well (so remember that picture of your private keys you took, yeah - they can get that too). Similar case happened with crypto investor, Michael Terpin and phone company, AT&T. and its $24 Million lawsuit.
Do not use your mobile number for anything involved in crypto.
⚠️ WARNING: Never create a “digital version”, “text based”, or “image based” on access information to your crypto wallet!
