British Army’s social media accounts hacked by crypto scammers

The British Army’s official Twitter (NYSE:), Facebook (NASDAQ:) and YouTube accounts were breached on Sunday for almost four hours, with scammers promoting rip-off nonfungible token (NFT) collections and cryptocurrency scams.

Just after 2:00 pm EST on Sunday, the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MOD) Press Office tweeted it was aware the Army’s social media accounts were compromised and had begun an investigation.
