The recent spate of third-party scams and frauds targeting customers of the embattled crypto exchange FTX has caused alarm among the company’s creditors and customers.

Scammers have been using a variety of tactics to try and take advantage of vulnerable customers, including creating fake websites claiming to be managed by the U.S.

Department of State and using deep fake videos featuring FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried promising to double customer crypto compensation.

In response, FTX has issued an alert to its customers warning them of the scams and reminding them that their debtors and agents will never ask for money, fees, payments, or account passwords.

In addition, states such as California, Texas, and New Jersey have joined calls for an independent examination of the company’s financial statements.
