Man Drugged For Bitcoin Trap

It appears that not even Tinder is safe from the ever-present scams that seem to plague the Bitcoin industry. A blog post written by Casa’s Jameson Lopp, details a strange and dangerous attempt at stealing a man’s precious bitcoin.

The blog describes how a man simply trying to find a date via the mobile app Tinder initiated conversation with a woman who claimed to be a “cryptocurrency trader” according to her profile. The two exchanged pleasantries and eventually met up in person.

Beyond feeling like her pictures were slightly different from her in-person appearance, the date appeared to be straightforward.

It wasn’t until the two decided to go back to the man’s apartment that things turned sour. According to the post, “While he was there we suspect the woman laced our client’s drink with scopolamine, also known as ‘Devil’s Breath,’ or a benzodiazepine. These drugs are well known to cause loss of inhibition and memory loss.”
