The X account of Microsoft India was recently hacked by cryptocurrency con artists.

The con artists assumed the identity of well-known dealer Keith Gill, a.k.a. "Roaring Kitty."

They shared many videos on social media and pointed followers to a fictitious GameStop Bitcoin presale website.

Users who linked their wallets to the phishing website risked having their funds compromised.

The event, which could have been a SIM-swapping attack, made the fraud known to over 211,000 followers.
