This is different from a credit card, who when the criminal activity is noted, can be charge backed for a period of up to 18 months, whereas for bitcoin this is not possible. This makes bitcoin and other crypto the perfect prey for scammers and people are being warned to be very careful of these scams.
the most common scam is said to be trading, where you have to pay for a service and are never rewarded or refunded when you pay in crypto. To all those on this forum, please be careful of this moving forward. This is something that i felt was important to bring to the attention of all here.
