Some scams attempt identity theft. For example, there was an incident where employers require their potential employees to verify their identity through IDnow. They explain it either as security measures or as specifics of a particular job (e.g. online verification of transactions).

 

Other scams include Ponzi schemes whereby websites ask you to deposit money and give you a high interest rate in return. Usually such websites pay off old users from money given by new users. They also have a referral program to get your friends to join too. In a matter of a few months, such scams close and people’s money is lost. So as a rule of thumb, if it’s too good to be true, then it most likely isn’t true. 

Some general warnings include the following:

You have to learn to think for yourself. Recognize that there are many scammers out there who will do a lot to steal money from you or steal your personal information. Trust your gut and stay safe. If you send your Bitcoin to a scammer, it’s gone forever. There are no refunds!
