Advanced System Care – Help Keep Scammers Away by Cleaning and Secureing Your PC Effectively and Keeping it that Way

As thousands of civilians die amid the deadly Israel-Hamas war, scammers are capitalizing on the horrific events to collect donations by pretending to be legitimate charities.

BleepingComputer has come across several posts on X (formerly Twitter), Telegram and Instagram where scammers list dubious cryptocurrency wallet addresses and lure unsuspecting victims into sending them funds.

Researchers have also spotted over 500 “fundraising” emails sent from entities claiming to be charities.

Crypto scams surface amid Israel-Hamas war

Several accounts on social platforms including X, Telegram, and Instagram are enticing people to make humanitarian donations to support the victims of the ongoing Middle East crisis.

However, these accounts, primarily listing crypto wallet addresses, have dubious origins, are not endorsed by an official charity, and are very likely to be scams.

Similar to the previous crypto donation scams we have reported on before, during the Russo-Ukrainian war and following the earthquakes in Turkey, these accounts evoke emotions of viewers by posting gory pictures of wounded soldiers, women, and children.

An example BleepingComputer came across was a “Gaza Relief Aid” account on X, which uses the domain and maintains a presence on Telegram and Instagram:

The domain, associated with the account was registered Oct 15th and is not endorsed by any established charitable organizations, contrary to its claim of being “An Islamic Relief Initiative” listed on the page’s footer.

The website’s copy, however, has been lifted from the Islamic Relief’s official website.

It is also worth noting, other than a handful of “press releases” that are syndicated verbatim from news wire agencies reporting on the Israel-Hamas war, and images of injured war victims, the website has no information with regards to the people behind it, the organization, or an associated contact number and a physical address.
