[SCAM] The Honeypot

On August 21, 2021, the Mini Basketball team achieves a record, half a million dollars in just a few minutes!

Yet it is one of the simplest and most inexpensive to set scams : the HoneyPot.

A HoneyPot is a Cryptocurrency that can be bought but not resold, only the creator of the Token has the possibility of it, a scam which can be set up in just a few minutes and which can bring tens of thousands of dollars to its creator.

What it takes : A few hundred dollars for marketing (more people = more gains)

Create social networks

Create a Token with a particular HoneyPot type Script (blocking the resale of the Token to everyone except the developer(s))

Simple, effective, scary, within the reach of a child. Probably one of the most powerful scams I've ever seen.

If you want to know more on the subject I invite you to watch this video :

I witnessed another honeypot yesterday, very poorly done, 13k in 10m. A logo made on paint, a broken website, lamentably poor networks ... 13k in 10mn.

And one more, 30k in a few minutes. 30k it's twice the salary of a minimum wage in a year. A scam that costs next to nothing, that sets up in no time, that pays so much and nobody says anything

I've just seen a honeypot with possibilities to selling but 100% sell tax, so the chart just don't look like a honeypot. With a closed telegram chat, lot of people are been falled in this scam..

Quite an informative post! Sadly not enough people are aware of how easy it is to get scammed, there are always victims to these things.

Good morning ! It's quite funny but in the last few months I've noticed that honeypots are used a little differently.

Indeed, today they are more and more used by legit devs to trap bots and other snipers during launches !

A scam contract that scam scamers haha what an irony !

Have you ever been scammed in the crypot space ? Just to know the proportion of you who have already been scammed

Yesterday a guy contacted me because he had his wallet emptied, he had bought a low cap with a score of 100/100 on tokensniffer.

I've check the contract and it's what we call a "wallet drainer", basically when you approve the contract you authorize him to empty your wallet.

However, the contract was rated "safe" and obtained the perfect rating on tokensniffer, which shows that you should not trust this kind of site.

These are not audit sites, just guys who quickly review contracts without looking in depth for hidden functions, they don't even test the contract themselves before noting it down, in short, never rely on anything but yourself.

Unbelievable. I think my story is worth sharing. I am someone who hardly believe and always tend to doubt. you can call me ( doubting thomas ) lol. About two months ago. I invested couple of thousand into crypto investment scheme. Unknowingly to me. it's was a fake investment firm and i got scammed of my money.

Sad as i was. i reported the case to the police and they couldn't help. I then decided to go on the internet to make research. I read couple of reviews and made findings with a recovery company to help seek a way of recovering my lost funds. Lucky me. I was able to come across cryptoretreive firm. who later came through and they only ask me few questions related to my lost funds. 3 weeks after. they cleared my doubt and made it clear that they were successful in recovering part of my lost funds.
I am so happy.. Yay

Luckily I've never been scammed in the crypto sphere before. But I always approach everything with suspicion and I've read so many stories about people getting scammed and have seen so many ads and posts that looked sketchy that I've gotten pretty good at spotting non-legit offers.
