John McAfee, the controversial well known British-American computer programmer and creator of the first commercial anti-virus Mcafee, who also has many ventures to his name and openly advocates cryptocurrency. An imposter on twitter used his name to announce a “semi-annual McAfee Crypto Extravaganza,” and claimed cryptocurrency airdrop promotion for Bitcoin, and Ethereum.
He also attached a blog claimed to be written by John himself, where he has written about him moving to the Bahamas and dealing with chaos. If you come across this tweet or blog, don’t fall for it. The imposter also shared the links to participate in “airdrop promotion.”
John Mcafee’s original tweeter handle goes by @officialmcaffe, and he has one million followers. With increasing scams related to cryptocurrency, it is better to be safe than sorry, beware of pity scams that are circulating on twitter and the internet.
