Shiba Inu Raises Alarm Over Malicious BONE Airdrop – The Crypto Basic

Shibarmy Scam Alerts issues an important warning regarding fake airdrops of BONE tokens targeting unsuspecting members of the Shiba Inu community.

Scammers are relentlessly finding new ways to exploit unsuspecting investors looking for new opportunities to increase their crypto holdings. Lately, these malicious actors have been targeting Shiba Inu enthusiasts due to their relentless enthusiasm for SHIB-related projects.

However, the Shiba Inu Ecosystem Team and our community-driven scam alert channel Shibarmy Scam Alert (@susbarium) are always issuing important warnings to keep our community members safe.

Malicious BONE Airdrop

The latest scam focuses on Shibarium’s gas fee token, Bone ShimaSwap (BONE). According to the latest X post, @susbarium discovered an illegal email encouraging members of the Shiba Inu community to participate in an airdrop to earn BONE tokens.

Details in the attached screenshot show that the scammer is informing potential victims that they are eligible to claim BONE as part of the ongoing token airdrop program. Scammers urge users to click on a link in the email to receive so-called BONE rewards.

Precautions regarding Shiba Inu

In particular, the community-driven scam channel warned users who received the email not to fall for the scam as BONE does not have an official airdrop. To avoid becoming a victim, the channel advised users to delete messages without clicking on links or images attached to emails.

Clicking on the link could redirect the user to a malicious website, allowing malicious parties to inadvertently take control of the user’s funds.

Such scams typically redirect victims to a malicious website where they connect to their wallet to receive airdrops. Connecting your wallet to the platform indirectly gives scammers full access to your funds.

Not new

This isn’t the first time scammers have targeted Shiba Inu lovers. Shibarmy Scam Alert exposed most of these scams.

On April 16, the channel provided insight into the most commonly used tactics by scammers: creating and redirecting users to malicious websites to steal information and funds.

Last month, we also exposed another scam targeting K9 (KNINE) investors, a new token in the Shiba Inu ecosystem. These warnings are essential to protect members of the Shiba Inu community from exploitation.
