🚨⚠️ Important Community Alert! ⚠️🚨

Attention all members of our community,

It has come to our attention that there are fraudulent activities happening on Telegram, specifically targeting users with impersonated channels claiming to be associated with the 8PAY Network.

Please be advised to stay vigilant and take necessary precautions to protect yourself from scams.

And please before commencing with the words “scam”, “scammer”, or “you stole my tokens” check this guideline and double-check if your channel of communication is one of the trusted ones described below.

Here are some important reminders:

1.⚠️ Do not connect your wallet or give your SEED-PRHASE to any un-trusted website: Scammers may attempt to gain access to your funds by tricking you into connecting your wallet to malicious websites. Always double-check the URL and ensure you’re on the official website before entering any sensitive information. (See below 8PAY’s trusted domain)
