Decentralized finance (DeFi) offers
By the word DeFi, we mean decentralized finance. As the whole cryptocurrency chain is decentralized in nature, scammers try to fool investors by offering very bright returns on some currencies. The offers are created by the scammers in such a way that they look as real as an official statement. As soon as an investor invests its money in the project either the project vanishes or any contact with the broker could not be established. The scammers enjoy the spent money and the investor feels pity for his decision.
In this type of scam, scammers usually make a bogus website that looks like a genuine platform for buying and selling. They even start their customer support to look legit.
