Scammers post an Out of Order message on ATM. The message says that ATM software is under development. It further warns the user not to deposit Bitcoin through ATM. There is a QR code attached to the message. Users are urged to deposit Bitcoins to the account attached to it. The posters were found on two of the city’s twenty Bitcoin ATMs, but nobody has yet fallen victim to the scam.
