PeckShield’s official Twitter account highlighted FrenTechPro’s actions and warned users against its phishing operations, noting that FrenTechPro falsely presents itself as the ‘friendtech X’ account.
This warning was closely preceded by an alert from SlowMist founder, Yu Xian. Xian pinpointed FrenTechPro as a phishing scheme. He highlighted that its strategy urged users to press an “ACTIVATE NOW” button. Once clicked, the system persistently tried to access assets linked to the user’s wallet.
Growing Malicious Activities Within Crypto Community
This is not the first instance of hackers exploiting the trust of unsuspecting users. Phishing scams, like the one perpetrated by FrenTech Pro, are becoming a growing concern in the crypto space.
These scammers disguise themselves as legitimate platforms or services. They manipulate users into inadvertently granting them access or making direct transfers of funds.
AegisWeb3, another cybersecurity firm, had also issued warnings about FrenTechPro. Their report highlighted how the scam deceived users by prompting them to sign transactions, essentially greenlighting transfers from their wallets.
