 Double your bitcoin: 

These Hackers say your BTC is doubled. You just have to send the BTC to the address given and you'll get double back. Some videos provide links under which you'll be shown with address details to send it without even signing up or a contact form. It's like the hacker says, "Send me your BTC and don't get in touch with me again". You can have a look at this screenshot from some links :

We're sorry to learn some victims are sending BTC in trying to double them. We've checked some addresses that have received that already.

Address with 0.22 BTC received

Address with 2 BTC received

Address with 1.24 BTC received

Don't send anything to those scammers.  They just want to take the BTC from you. If you find any video like this on youtube just go and report it.
