From time to time I receive a message on Twitter like the following:

Help me transfer 0.7btc to your brother

You don't have to tell me it's a scam. Of course it is.

But what is it? Is it an advance fee scam? Are they trying to gain access to any wallet I may use to connect? Money laundering? Or is it something else?

    Looks like they're asking you to log in from your IP to move stolen crypto. This way, if someone traces the transfer they'll come to you.

    @littleadv Nah, I've poked around at a few of these (I got the same format). It's a bare-bones fake site; broken links and non-functional sections everywhere. Their goal will be to convince you that they're rich, and rope you into a "manage my money for me" scam, where they send you fake money and you turn it into un-refundable giftcards you send back to them.
