# ⚠️ Scam Warning ⚠️
**Please read the** [**Cybersecurity guidelines for Cardano Users**](https://iohk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/900005141163-Cybersecurity-guidelines-for-Cardano-users)**.**
There are ongoing giveaway scams on youtube and many scammers lurking in Cardano’s social channels impersonating ambassadors/moderators/official staff.
For example, searching ‘cardano’ on youtube and sorting by most recent upload date shows several giveaway scams running (all videos in screenshot are scams):
[Ongoing ‘giveaway’ scams on Youtube](https://preview.redd.it/0wjjzhg4lxj71.png?width=1311&format=png&auto=webp&s=753a8d62ad036cf7fd7ec037f7b8b313120e5f04)
The youtube scams are automated; use stolen footage usually of Charles Hoskinson and are restreamed so to appear to be ‘live’; appear to have many watchers (which are bots); use bought hacked channels and are edited to appear like official channels.
Do not be fooled!
**To be clear:**
* ⚠️ There is **no such thing** as a Cardano giveaway
* ⚠️ **Never** **share** your seed phrase with ANYONE
* ⚠️ **Never** **send** ADA to someone promising to send you more ADA back
* ⚠️ You **will never** be contacted by ambassadors/moderators/staff
**Please report scams on the** [**Cardano Fraud Detection Bureau**](https://cfdb.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portals)**.**
