What are NFT scams?

NFT scams refer to fraudulent or deceptive practices within the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) space. These scams can take various forms, such as fake projects, misleading promises, or unauthorized sales. Scammers may create counterfeit NFTs to trick users into making transactions, leading to financial losses or theft of sensitive information.

How does someone become a victim of NFT scams?

Users can become victims of NFT scams by engaging with illegitimate projects, participating in unauthorized sales, or falling for misleading information. Scammers often exploit the decentralized and pseudonymous nature of blockchain transactions to carry out fraudulent activities. It's crucial for users to exercise caution, conduct thorough research, and verify the legitimacy of NFT projects before making any transactions.

How does NFT Spam filtering work?

The NFT Spam filtering feature in the Bitcoin.com Wallet app automatically identifies and filters out spam NFTs. The filtering algorithm analyzes various factors, such as project metadata, transaction patterns, and historical data to distinguish between legitimate and potentially harmful NFTs.

Please contact our support team at support@bitcoin.com and provide the collection address of the NFT.

If you continue to encounter spam NFTs in your wallet that have not been caught by the NFT Spam filter, we apologize for the inconvenience.
