These fraudsters specifically aim to capitalize on the hype surrounding artificial intelligence (AI) technology to lure potential victims. They may use common enticing words to advertise their fraudulent activities.

Moreover, these bad actors may also rely on advanced AI technology to impersonate their identities. The rapid development of AI has made it much easier for fraudsters to impersonate government agencies as well as prominent individuals (such as Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse).

The SEC also warned about fraudsters reaching out to potential victims through social media to establish online relationships and promote fraudulent investment activities. Therefore, users are advised not to make investment decisions based solely on advice found on the internet. Of course, individuals should never share their sensitive financial information with strangers online.
