Buterin decided to warn his subscribers on Twitter about the scamming scheme, which is gaining popularity, in which cybercriminals under the guise of the creator Ethereum are trying to fraudulently capture the cryptocurrency accumulation of potential victims.

As Buturin explains, the fraudster who claims to be himself declares that "his laptop, literally, was dead," so he needs money until he gets to the cold wallet, which will take about a week.

Users have already compared the hypothetical situation in which Buterin could request Ethereum, with Bill Gates trying to get a serial key from Windows.

Attackers do not cease to invent new schemes to steal cryptocurrency from its owners. Recently, Kaspersky unveiled new Facebook phishin scheme.
