Consumer Daily Reports

Cryptocurrency and Bitcoin ATM

Scammers have come up with a new – and rather ingenious – way to rip people off. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says the ruse involves a QR code, an impersonator, and a trip to a cryptocurrency ATM where the scammer finishes up their swindle.

The scammer’s first move is to call a victim and pretend to be with the government, a local utility company, or law enforcement. FTC officials say they have also seen instances where someone calls to say you’ve won a prize or to follow up on a potential romantic relationship.

The key trigger is that once they’ve gained your confidence by getting you to bite on the story they’re telling, the scammer then asks you for money. 

“If you believe the story they tell and you seem willing to engage, they’ll stay on the phone to direct you to withdraw money from your bank, investment, or retirement accounts,” Cristina Miranda from the FTC’s Division of Consumer and Business Education, said in laying out the narrative.

The scammer’s next step is to employ a cryptocurrency ATM, which are digital cash machines that are starting to show up at places like Walmart and Circle K. Once the victim gets to an ATM, the scammer asks them to insert money and buy cryptocurrency. 

As the process unfolds, the scammer sends the victim a QR code to use during the transaction. However, that QR code is actually associated with the scammer’s cryptocurrency wallet. When the victim “buys” cryptocurrency at the ATM using that code, the money gets transferred to the scammer.

Using cryptocurrency ATMs is a clever part of the scam for a couple of reasons. According to a New Jersey investigation on the scam, close to 75% of the companies that operate a cryptocurrency ATM allow certain transactions to proceed without requiring the user to present any information outside of a cell phone number; more than half of those businesses permitted users to purchase up to $900 worth of cryptocurrency with only a cell phone number or no information at all.

How to protect yourself

The FBI’s Internet Crime Complaint Center is providing guidelines for consumers to follow so they can protect themselves from this scam. That advice includes the following:

  • Don’t send payments to someone you have only spoken to online, even if you believe you have established a relationship with the individual.

  • Don’t follow instructions from someone you have never met to scan a QR code and send payment via a physical cryptocurrency ATM.

  • Don’t respond to a caller who claims to be a representative of a company that you have an account with who requests personal information or demands cryptocurrency. Contact the entity directly for verification.

  • Don’t respond to a caller from an unknown telephone number who identifies as a person you know and requests cryptocurrency.

  • Practice caution when an entity states they can only accept cryptocurrency and identifies as an official with the government, law enforcement, a legal office, or a utility company. These entities will not instruct you to wire funds, send checks, send money overseas, or make deposits into unknown individuals’ accounts.

  • Avoid cryptocurrency ATMs advertising anonymity and only require a phone number or e-mail. These cryptocurrency ATMs may not be in compliance with U.S. federal regulations and may facilitate money laundering. Instructions to use cryptocurrency ATMs with these specific characteristics are a significant indicator of fraud.

  • If you are using a cryptocurrency ATM and the ATM operator calls you to explain that your transactions are consistent with fraud and advises you to stop sending money, you should stop or cancel the transaction immediately.

If you believe you have become a victim of this type of fraud, the FTC requests that you report the incident to its site here. The FBI also encourages victims to report fraudulent or suspicious activities to the FBI IC3.

Related Videos On: Avoid COVID-19 Stimulus Payment Scams | Federal Trade Commission


Scammers are following the headlines about economic impact payments. Know how to spot and avoid the scams to keep your money and information to yourself. Learn more at https://ftc.gov/coronavirus. ********************************** Transcript: Hi, I’m Becca Kelly Slaughter, Acting Chair of the Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency. You’ve probably heard the great news that the American Rescue Plan is now law. That means lots of people will soon be getting desperately-needed economic impact payments—some folks call them stimulus payments—of up to fourteen hundred dollars. Many of you have been here before, so you know these funds will come through direct deposit, check, or debit card. But we here at the FTC would like to remind you that scammers follow the headlines, too. So here are a few sure ways to spot a scammer trying to take your money or personal information. First, know that nobody in the government will ask you to pay anything up front to get your economic impact payment. There’s no way to get your payment faster, and there’s no form to fill out. That’s simply a scam. Second, the government will not call, email, text, or message you on social media to ask for your Social Security, bank account, or credit card number. Anyone who does is a scammer. Third, anyone who tells you to pay by money transfer, gift card, or cryptocurrency is a scammer. No matter WHY they say you need to pay. If you spot these scams, tell the FTC at ReportFraud.ftc.gov. Every report helps us try to stop scammers. And let me say a word to would-be scammers: the FTC will use all of its enforcement authority to come after bad actors who try to take advantage of people anxiously awaiting relief. To learn more about avoiding pandemic-related scams, visit FTC.gov/coronavirus. And help us spread the word. Share these tips and this video through your network. Thanks for helping us protect people from scams. ********************************** The Federal Trade Commission deals with issues that touch the economic life of every American.
