Scammers Imitating Moburst – Be Diligent
Originally Published on October 2022, Updated on November 2023
In an unfortunate turn of events, there have been several instances of scammers posing as members of the Moburst team, using deceptive tactics to defraud unsuspecting individuals. We feel it’s crucial to keep our community informed about these scams and provide updates and insights into how they operate.
October 2022 Update
The first reported scam incident occurred in October 2022, when scammers impersonated Moburst employees and targeted individuals via an Australian phone number. The fraudsters promised “ASO work” if the victims agreed to invest in cryptocurrency, assuring them that the investment would be “refunded,” with a commission for every ASO task completed.
The scammers created fake websites mimicking Moburst to commit their fraudulent activities. Please note that any website claiming to be Moburst that is not our official domain: https://www.moburst.com is illegitimate.
Here is an example of such a website:
September 2023 Update
Unfortunately, this ongoing scam persists as scammers impersonating Moburst employees continue to target individuals. This time, they are using UK phone numbers and fake Moburst email addresses. We would like to strongly emphasize that Moburst does not engage in cryptocurrency dealings and would never request money from our candidates or clients for such purposes.
Remember, any dealings you may have had with a company purporting to be Moburst that has requested crypto investments are in no way affiliated with our company.
Make sure to NOT engage with any email address that does not correspond to our official domain: @moburst.com. Here is an instance of a fraudulent email address impersonating Gilad Bechar, CEO of Moburst:
November 2023 Update
The most recent scam incident can be traced back to a Dutch phone number. This time, the fraudsters established a fake website and posed as Moburst employees. This scam resulted in an individual being defrauded out of €600.
We have reported these cases to the appropriate authorities and encourage any victims of these scams to do so as well.
Please contact us with relevant information if you spot any further suspicious domains claiming to be Moburst. We sincerely apologize if you have been affected by this scam. Thank you for your cooperation.
