Crypto Fraud Revenue Down 30%
The number of shadow schemes is still growing.
One of the reasons for the fall was the collapse of the cryptocurrency market
Despite the increase in the number of fraudulent schemes, income from them fell by 30% along with the entire cryptocurrency market.
Ponzi schemes and other fraudulent investment schemes have earned far more than all other types of cryptocurrency scams. In 2019, these shady schemes received 95% of all funds stolen in the cryptocurrency industry, according to a study from Chainalysis..
However, since the end of the week ending March 8, the average weekly income from investment scams has decreased by 33%, from $ 4.2 million to just under $ 2.9 million..
Despite the increasing frequency of phishing attacks associated with the coronavirus pandemic, attackers began to receive less profit precisely because of the collapse of the cryptocurrency market, when Bitcoin lost almost 30% in price in just a day..
Lack of season
Chainalysis clarifies that the drop in cybercriminals’ income is also due to the fact that most of the phishing schemes require the same fixed amount from victims, usually about 0.2 BTC – in all their phishing ads via email, YouTube, social networks and on their own websites.
It turns out that despite the growth of shadow schemes associated with Covid-19, the decline in cryptocurrency prices caused by the pandemic has sharply reduced the income from this type of activity..
Taste and color
Fraudsters, posing as a WHO department, even “collect donations” in bitcoin to fight coronavirus infection.
True, unlike scammers, WHO does accept donations, however, on the official website of the foundation there is not a hint of accepting donations in bitcoin.

Meanwhile, the FBI was able to calculate the total number of stolen funds using phishing scams. According to the FBI spokesman, since October 1, 2013.
