I hate scams. I have been scammed before and it feels bad. And you are not the only one.
But there isn't much you can do to fix this.

Yes unfortunately there are a lot of scams out there in the Cryptocurrency world, the best thing to do is always be as vigilant as possible when dealing with an individual/company, and try to do as much research as possible before hand to ensure who you are dealing with is reputable.

Scammers will use every oppurtunity at their disposal be it crypto or some kind of scheme, as long as there are people who are naive or unknowledgable enough there will be scams. There is nothing you can do about the process itself, but lately ive been hearing about this CryptoPolice project. I believe with their help the amount of people who get scammed will get reduced by alot. Theyll have their own huge platform with "Officers" who will be reviewing diffrenct icos and cryptocurrencies for possibilty of it being a scam, who will get rewarded accordingly for their work. You should check it out mate!

Completely understandable and you're not alone in feeling that way. You could always channel that anger into something constructive like bounties and help convict crypto criminals! Check out: https://bounty.bitcoin.com/bounties.html :D

These scammers aren't gonna stop! I just hope they get what they deserve and authorities will somehow get to them. I was almost scammed before and good thing I hesitated and asked for some advice from trusted friends before digging in.

Always stay guarded as scammers are becoming stealthier with the aid of technology. Trust the old boring protocols and be watchful of those that offer more than you expect. When it's too good to be true, more often it surely isn't true.

A good friend of mine was just scammed two days ago. I feel bad that these scammers lack conscience and they are now increasing in number and after those who are just trying to start crypto investing.

It is a common trend these days. However, I believe we can help each other. Tell everyone your experience with scammers and what method they used. This will help others to be alert when such scam methods are presented. If you have been scammed before, please share your story. Thanks

Agreed, this is the best thing a lot of us can do, don't be embarrassed or ashamed if you got scammed, tell as many people as possible how it happened and make as many people as aware as possible, prevention is the best cure.

A high number of scummers is common for situations like today, when there are great money opportunities and market is still young and unknown.
This trend won`t disappear soon, so smart man must be always careful and optimally suspicious.

Do you think the bear market has made it increasingly harder for scammers bc people aren't as frivolous with their money?

Not really, I am sure it all boils down to greed or the tendency to get rich quick. Many persons fall victim to their greed. So, basically scammers take advantage of our human natural imperfection: GREED.

It is hard for a novice investor to understand what is a scam - a lot of clever words, promising company goals, like there is a team. Everything shows that the company is good.

It comes as no surprise that you feel that way, no one likes to be scammed. Personally I never faced a fraud, but I’m still fighting with a feeling that something like that may happen. Long time ago (at the very beginning of dealing with crypto) I decided to make a deep research on each platform, before using it. So far this strategy is quite successful.

What does the deep study of each platform involve?

Nobody likes to be scammed. I partially blame the victims for this because they don't do any sort of research and invest without thinking properly. You need to thoroughly check the authenticity of the project in which you want to invest in. Just remember, the world is full of bad people.
