“Elon Musk” Crypto Scam May Have Snagged Dozens Of Bitcoin (BTC)22.84

After Twitter reportedly restricted (and banned) many of the accounts sharing the likeness of Tesla & SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, one of the social media platform’s foremost stars, reports have arisen that claim that the world-renowned entrepreneur has been impersonated yet again, this time in a context pertaining to Bitcoin (BTC).

Just one day ago, an anonymous group of hackers breached that Twitter accounts of Matalan and PatheUK, two British media outlets that have been verified (denoted by the iconic blue checkmark) and have garnered thousands of followers. The attackers quickly went to work, changing the profile’s picture and title/name to trick Twitter-goers that they were Musk himself, who is an active (maybe too-active) user of the platform himself.
