Many youths are unable to afford the luxuries of this life but due to greediness and laziness, most of them use their talent to earn money through multiple cybercrimes and by doing so they are duping innocent people.

Recently multiple celebrities around the world got their twitter account hacked by an unknown fraudster and an American man unfortunately lost $15,000 after he was not being careful while dealing with online transactions.

The unknown fraudster used the hacker celebrities twitter account to ask fans to send bitcoins worth $1,000 and the fraudster also promise to double the money.

An American man identified as Nyfrix on twitter took to his twitter account to complain after he sent $15,000 to the scammer's Bitcoin wallet and his money was not doubled. In his words, Nyfrix said "Where's my money! I have being waiting please send it or send my money back".

See the screenshot below:

However, the appropriate authorities are currently investigating the case and they are trying to apprehend the hacker behind the attack.

Personally I would advise people to be very careful before engaging in any online transaction and they should only engage in online transaction with a brand with a high reputation.
