In general, search engine websites and social platforms are particularly careful about advertising activities related to operational data encryption. This is why, under some preconditions, this approach looks best to be.

Fraud: No, you can hardly buy Aptos domain name for 8 yuan

Today, on November 21, 2022, Twitter launched a promotional campaign to advertise the domain name provided by an Aptos domain name user. It announced that the newly launched Aptos DNS provides its users with the domain name ". opt", which is only 2 apt (about 8.19 US dollars as of the time of submission).

The swindlers run a website very similar to the initial page of Aptos DNS in the background. However, it operates under a different name and uses slightly different fonts on the page.

Even the demo code of the Docs part of the phishing website was stolen from the original website: the liar could not change the URL details, so his text document redirected the customer's API requirements to the basic website.

On Monday, this advertising campaign bypassed the pre downgrade system of Twitter and began to show to service platform customers interested in blockchain technology and digital currency. In addition, the true Aptos DNS was released together with the Aptos network in the middle and late October.

The "Killer of Solana" has once again become the target of numerous scams

In addition, the initial Aptos Lab DNS service project did not have an independent Twitter account; Its publicity is communicated according to Aptos ecological comprehensive key account.

Not to mention, at the beginning, Aptos DNS website did not provide the promotion activities of "relatively limited discounts" and "only three accounts" with exclusive agency price

As mentioned above, this is not the first time that Aptos (APT) enthusiasts have been targeted by deceptive promotions. Apart from the original "airdropped materials", the fraudster is still releasing an alarm about the intrusion of Aptos (APT) blockchain technology by hackers.

However, this flamboyant "killer of Solana" has never been attacked by hackers.
