Cryptocurrency scammers send tokens that lure victims to access phishing sites that steal their crypto.

This is a new way to give people an "airdrop" and redirect them to fake decentralized exchange sites.

According to Shegenerates, victims' attempts to exchange tokens will fail, but they will be recorded in the blockchain so scammers can see which victims are interested in the tokens.

She warn people to never mind the tokens or smart contracts that sent out of blue, and not to visit the website.
