On Tuesday, a Twitter account with the handle @elonmuskik claimed that Musk was 'giving away' 3,000 Ether (the second-biggest crypto-currency, after Bitcoin) worth around £1.7m ($2.4m).

Users are then asked to send a small amount of money to the account in order to 'qualify' for the giveaway - which, of course, they never get back.

Check out this comprehensive BBC coverage for expert advice on how to stay safe from the fake accounts.
