Findings have shown that there is another XRP scam out there with the purpose of defrauding unsuspecting crypto investors.
Brad Garlinghouse, the CEO of blockchain giant Ripple has been impersonated by swindlers who are promoting a fake giveaway of 50mln XRP tokens on social channel YouTube.
Shun Scams Relating to Ripple by All Means
Some members of the Ripple community gave the hint, warning users of XRP crypto to be wary of the scam. The community members are now pleading to YouTube to help shut down the spurious channel with over 276,000 subscribers. The community member made the request to keep unsuspecting people safe from the rip-off.

This exposé emanates just a month ago after which a YouTube scam was broadcasted. The scam passed around an interview of important crypto makeups, Garlinghouse inclusive, with the aim of flattering gullible investors so as to deposit money into airdrop scams.
Users should put in mind that Ripple is not of the idea of giving away cash. Besides, they are also not of the opinion of asking you to deposit money upfront.
