Indian crypto investors have lost about Rs 1000 crore to several ongoing fake crypto exchanges scam, according to a report by cyber security research company, CloudSEK.
The report said that the primary reason that Indians were falling prey to these kinds of cyber attacks was because the attackers replicated an exact copy of the original crypto website and made it difficult for people to differentiate between the original and duplicate.
