FTX today warned its customers of recent attempts by scammers to trick them out of money by demanding fees, payments, or account passwords.

Cons, profiting from the downfall of FTX, have stepped up their game in recent months.

"We are aware of active third-party scams and frauds seeking to take advantage of FTX customers," the company warned.

FTX also stated that its debtors and agents will never ask customers to pay fees or provide account passwords in connection with the "return or prospective return of customer assets," and suggested that any suspicious email recipients contact the official FTX debtors email address.

The Oregon Division of Financial Regulation issued a warning before the end of December, saying that fraudsters were looking to "re-victimize those who have already been harmed and are trying to find ways to recover their losses."

It referenced a bogus website that asked for account information, falsely claiming to be run by the US Department of State and involved in returning FTX customers' assets.

For example, in November, a video purporting to feature FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried claimed to double customers' crypto compensation. It tricked people into going to a malicious website by promising a free crypto in exchange for tokens sent to the scammers.

A recent event in FTX's bankruptcy proceedings involves calls for an independent examination of the company's financial statements from multiple states, including California, Texas, and New Jersey.

According to a Reuters report from Feb. 2 about Bankman-Fried, he is reportedly in talks with federal prosecutors to resolve a dispute over his bail conditions.

The judge presiding over the criminal fraud case against Bankman-Fried in federal court in Manhattan on Wednesday temporarily forbade the 30-year-old former billionaire from contacting employees of FTX or his Alameda Research hedge fund due to worries that he would tamper with witnesses.

His attorneys had argued that he did not require the additional bail condition because he had contacted current executives at the bankrupt exchange to offer "assistance" and not to interfere.

Bankman-Fried has entered a not guilty plea and is currently under house arrest with his parents in California.

Mark Cohen's attorney has asked U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan to delay a hearing scheduled for Feb. 7 and a deadline set for Feb. 2 by which Cohen must explain why he should be allowed to access and transfer cryptocurrency before trial.
