Lost more than 100,000 USD in Bitcoin because of being cheated by bots
Last month, when Dr. Anders Apgar and his family went to dinner at a restaurant
"As soon as she picked up the phone, a 'Your account is in danger' message popped up in the form of SMS," Apgar said. He took the phone back from his wife, but that's when the nightmare began.
Apgar and his wife are both obstetricians at a hospital in Maryland (USA). Both started investing in cryptocurrencies a few years ago. In December 2021, the husband's account increased to 106,000 USD, mainly thanks to Bitcoin. Like millions of other Americans, they trade and store their coins on Coinbase.
