The EtherPoW fork Etherium team warned the community about the proliferation of fake accounts and websites pretending to be an official project on social media.
According to a statement from EtherPoW (ETHW), members of the crypto community could fall victim to a fraudulent social media campaign, where fake accounts and project websites have been seen proliferating en masse.

In addition, several popular Twitter accounts were hacked to falsely advertise ETHW airdrops and conduct ETH/ETHW exchanges. The project team stressed that the only official ETHW giveaway was in automatic mode and ended on 16 September. No additional giveaways are planned.
To avoid becoming a victim of scammers, EtherPoW recommends that crypto-asset holders pay attention to social media account addresses, avoid “free” ETHW giveaways and sharing personal or wallet data.
In early September, hackers hacked the Twitter account of PwC Venezuela, which has more than 37,000 followers. The attackers posted a message about a free XRP giveaway containing phishing links.
