This is why it may be required to pay more attention, as many scammers clone legitimate accounts to trick unsuspecting users, and the discrepancies can only be spotted at a closer look.

In its tweet, Shib army scam alerts flagged a fake account impersonating Ragnar Shib, a Shiba Inu Telegram admin. Days ago, Marswap, a Shibarium DEX, reported a fake account impersonating its official X handle.

Extra tips to stay safe

In an earlier tweet, Shib army scam alerts offered five tips for the Shiba Inu community to stay safe as scams proliferate.

The first is to beware of unsolicited messages. Second, they should enable two-factor authentication (2FA) to add an extra layer of security. Third, they should consider utilizing a hardware wallet to safely store cryptocurrency. Private keys are kept offline in hardware wallets, making it extremely difficult for hackers to obtain access to funds.

Fourth, they should not rush into investments or share sensitive information without verifying the legitimacy of the source.

Fifth, they should be wary of “pump and dump” schemes in which deceptive individuals artificially inflate cryptocurrency prices before selling their holdings at the peak, leaving others with substantial losses.
