In a shocking turn of events, Hayden Adams, the creator of Uniswap, took to Twitter to express his disbelief at an audacious scam that targeted the platform. The scammers behind this elaborate scheme not only devised a deceptive Uniswap website but also went the extra mile by organizing a meticulously planned hour-long Zoom call, complete with deepfake versions of their own employees.

To add an alarming level of credibility to their fraudulent activities, the scammers crafted an orchestrated video presentation featuring individuals pretending to be high-ranking Uniswap executives from the vibrant city of Shenzhen, China. In the video, these impostors shamelessly promoted $UNI, Uniswap’s native cryptocurrency, further deceiving unsuspecting viewers.

In response to the unfolding scam, Adams swiftly distanced himself and the genuine Uniswap team from any association with the video or its participants. He emphasized that Uniswap and its Foundation had absolutely no involvement in these fraudulent activities.

This exquisite type of scam highlights the importance of staying vigilant and informed to protect oneself from such deceptive schemes.
