Google’s G Suite Twitter account is the latest to get hacked in bitcoin scam

Google’s official G Suite Twitter account is the latest victim of an ongoing bitcoin scam that has been plaguing the social media platform for the last few weeks, joining companies like Target (which saw a similar hack this morning), via The Next Web 1.

In these kinds of scams, promoted tweets that appeared to originate from the G Suite account pop up in users’ timelines, directing them toward a scammy bitcoin address as part of a “giveaway.”

Basically, the scammers are targeting verified accounts and using those hacked verified account to promote these scams which looks more than authentic when a blue tick mark appears next to it.

The incident took places moments after Twitter told Hard Fork it is working on curbing 2 the series cryptocurrency-related breaches on its platform. Still, if the G Suite hack coming just hours after the Target incident, chances are this bitcoin scam issue is only going to get worse before it gets better.
