  3. Don’t trust calls/emails/messages claiming to be from government agencies or any official body and asking for your private user details.

Zapit is a non-custodial crypto exchange platform that uses a decentralized escrow system. The funds remain in escrow which is secured by smart contracts. The platform holds your money at no time, before, during, or after a transaction.
  5. Be cautious about who you follow on social media, especially people claiming to be crypto experts or influences.
