Cybercriminals target metaverse investors with phishing scams


A nurse in rural Maine. A fitness instructor in Colorado. A venture capitalist in Florida. All three invested in the metaverse, buying land they say they thought was a solid investment. 

“I was really excited about it,” said Kasha Desrosiers, a long-term care nurse. “And hopeful for, you know, whatever projects that would come out of it.”

But in just days or months, all their virtual land was gone. And each of them says that there was simply no way to get it back.
