俄罗斯Facebook使用帕维尔·杜罗夫(Pavel Durov)的脸发布虚假Telegram货币广告

Russian Facebook hit with fake Telegram token ads using Pavel Durov’s face

When new crypto or digital currency projects are announced it doesn’t take long for scams to follow. It appears that Telegram’s supposedly incoming TON token is the latest to be exploited by opportunistic scammers.

一旦有新的加密货币或数字货币项目发布,针对它的骗局也很快就会随即出现。 有情况显示Telegram发布的TON货币正是机会主义骗子能利用的最新货币。

According to Russian news outlet Kommersant, fraudsters are using the face of Telegram founder Pavel Durov to push fake TON investment opportunities.

根据俄罗斯新闻媒体Kommersant的报道,欺诈者正在利用Telegram创始人      Pavel Durov的面孔来推动虚假的TON货币投资机会。

The advert appears to be a sponsored post made under a page called “Successful Investor.” On clicking the post, users are redirected to a website that imitates the appearance of Russian news site, RBC.

该广告出现在一个题为“成功的投资者”页面下创建的赞助帖子。点击该帖后,用户将被引导到模仿俄罗斯新闻网站RBC外观的一个钓鱼网站。

Kommersant says the imitation website displays what looks to be an investigative article from RBC, which contains links to another website that promotes the fraudulent investment opportunity.

Kommersant报道说,该仿冒网站发布了RBC的调查文章,该文章包含指向另一个网站的链接,而这个网站可导致欺诈性投资行为。

The second website asks users to input personal data including email addresses and phone numbers. Once registered, the site promises that users will earn 10 to 15 thousand rubles ($150 to $240) per day.

第二个网站要求用户输入包括电子邮件地址和电话号码的个人数据。而用户填写注册后,该网站承诺用户每天将赚取到一万到一万五千卢布的收益(相当于150到240美元)。

While that might sound conservative (for a scam at least) nothing can promise guaranteed return on investment.

尽管这听起来很保守(至少对于一个骗局而言),但没有什么可以保证投资回报。

The domain of the fake websites were allegedly registered at the end of August 2019. Seemingly it comes in time to take advantage of Telegram’s TON sale pegged for fall this year. In reality though, many questions remain over how this will happen and what the fall out will be.

据称,这些虚假网站的域名注册于2019年8月底。 看来是时候该利用Telegram的TON交易了。但是实际上,对于这种情况将如何发生以及后果如何仍存在许多的疑问。

One report from the Washington-based Middle East Media Research Institute speculated that the Telegram token would further enable terrorist organizations. This is based on the institute’s discovery that many terrorist organizations are using Telegram and cryptocurrency as fundraising tools.

位于华盛顿的MEMRI研究所的一份报告推测,Telegram虚拟货币将进一步使恐怖组织受益。基于该机构的调查,许多恐怖组织正在使用Telegram和它的加密货币TON作为其筹款工具。

This case, of scammers using Durov’s face and a genuinely fake news website, should hardly come as surprising. Facebook has been awash with adverts for fake cryptocurrencies in recent years. The Big F was even used by scammers promoting sales of clearly fake Libra tokens.

骗子利用杜罗夫的脸和一个虚假的新闻网站行骗的案例并不足为奇。近年来,Facebook上充斥着伪造加密货币的广告。诈骗者甚至使用FACEBOOK来销售明显伪造的Libra货币。
