Fraudsters Use Robocall Bots to Steal Crypto Investors’ 2FA Codes
Crypto investors in the US are being targeted with bot-driven robocalls designed to steal two-factor authentication codes, netting the attackers hundreds of thousands of dollars in digital currency.
Fraudsters are selling bots designed to trick crypto investors into divulging their two-factor authentication (2FA) codes, leading to accounts being taken over and drained, according to a CNBC report.
The report tells the story of Dr. Anders Apgar, a Coinbase customer whose digital wallet held more than $100,000 in crypto before he was duped into divulging his 2FA code during a robocall.

  2. Why did the robocalls make a difference here?
