Bitcoin Depot takes security and data privacy very seriously.
Should I send Bitcoin to a stranger?
You should not send Bitcoin to someone you don’t know. All crypto transactions are final, meaning that you will not be able to reverse a transaction after it’s completed.
What is a “fake sale” scam?

A fake sale scam is when someone pretending to be a legitimate seller offers certain products or services at a very low price and will only accept forms of payment that are not possible to redirect or track, such as Bitcoin.

If you think you are involved in a fake sale scam, we strongly recommend ceasing activity related to this situation and no longer sending funds to that party. Please be advised that all Bitcoin transactions are irreversible. Scam warnings appear on our kiosks, so please use caution, as Bitcoin Depot is not responsible for your transaction activity. If you find yourself in doubt, please call or text (678)-435-9604 or send an email to Support@BitcoinDepot.com.
