With the rise of digital technology and online platforms, cyber scams have also surged. At Coinrule, your safety is our top priority, and we believe that a well-informed user is the best defense against scams. We want to arm you with the knowledge you need to identify and avoid the various scam tactics that target potential users and our Community.

1. Scam Sites Pretending to be Coinrule

Unfortunately, there are imposter sites out there that mirror the design and interface of Coinrule with a primary motive to trick users into depositing funds into these illegal scam sites.

How to Stay Safe:

  • Always double-check the URL. The official Coinrule site will always be "https://www.coinrule.com" (or a variant that is definitively under the "coinrule.com" domain). Beware of subtle changes or additions that might make the URL look suspicious.

  • Never deposit funds into a site unless you're 100% sure it's the genuine Coinrule platform.

  • Remember, Coinrule will never ask you to deposit funds anywhere on Coinrule.

2. Fake Social Media Accounts and Chats

Scammers love to impersonate trusted entities. This could be on platforms like Discord, Telegram, or even through email. They might use the Coinrule logo, our brand name, or even the names of our team members.

How to Stay Safe:

  • The Coinrule Team will NEVER DM you or ask for funds through Discord.

  • No Coinrule employee will ask you to transfer funds. We will NEVER ask for money, your password or any sensitive information.

  • Be wary of any unsolicited messages or emails claiming to be from Coinrule, especially those asking for personal information, private keys, or deposits.

  • If in doubt, double check on another channel such as through our Intercom support chat in the web app.

  • Report suspicious accounts or messages to the platform administrators and notify us.

3. Misleading Ads Claiming to Represent Coinrule

Scammers can create ads on various platforms, pretending to be us, often with too-good-to-be-true offers.

How to Stay Safe:

  • Be critical of any advertisement that seems off or too generous. Remember the old saying: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

  • Always follow the practice of going directly to our official website www.coinrule.com rather than clicking on ads. This way, you can ensure you're interacting with the real Coinrule.

General Warning

We will never ask you to deposit funds into Coinrule. If something doesn't sound right or feels off, always confirm with [email protected] or check in the 'General Discussion' channel of Coinrule's Discord community.

Conclusion

The digital world offers tremendous opportunities, but it also harbors risks. By being vigilant, critical, and always double-checking, you can minimize your exposure to these scams. Always prioritize your safety. Remember, your best asset is knowledge, and staying informed can make all the difference.

Share this post with your friends and fellow traders to ensure they too are aware of these potential pitfalls. Let's build a safer, scam-free community together.
