What Is “Scam” Label On Telegram?
Scam on Telegram? Does it true? the answer is yes and Telegram scammers exist so you have to be careful when someone sends you a message for the first time!
If you don’t know him and you think he is a scammer do not just block him also report it to the Telegram support team.
Telegram team will check the issue and if he is reported by another user, they will add a “SCAM” sign to his account (next to his username) so other users will know that it’s a scammer person and they won’t trust him anymore.

What are scam techniques in the Telegram messenger?
There 2 ways that scammers use to cheat users as follows:
- Fake product or service.
Telegram never wants money or asks you to verify your identity.
Usually, scammers will encourage you to click on a phishing link when you insert your account password.
They can access your Telegram account then you will be hacked.
If you have received a message from Telegram and it hasn’t blue tick, just ignore it and report that account.
for example, they offer a discounted product and when you want to pay will get an error like this “Incorrect Card Details”.
You sent the card details to scammers! due to increased awareness of Telegram users on phishing pages, scammers will use new ways to gain your trust.
Digital currencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc cannot be tracked so if they will use these you cannot sue them and the account holder will hide.
What Happens When You Report a Telegram Account?
Telegram has a new feature to detect scammers, details can be found in the above image.
When you report a Telegram account as a scammer, if many users reported that account it will approve by the Telegram support team and will get a “SCAM” sign next to its username.
The bio section will display warning text that contains:
⚠️ Warning: Many users reported this account as a scam. Please be careful, especially if it asks you for money.
How To Report a Telegram Account as Scammer?
To report an account as a scam there are two different ways.
In the first method, you should enter Telegram support and explain the issue in the “Please describe your problem” field.
You can’t attach an image to the support page so you can upload it on a website like imgbb and insert your link in the field. for more information look at the below picture.
Second method: in the method way you can send a message to @notoscam and explain the issue with the previous method algorithm then you will receive confirmation from the Telegram support team and your request will be reviewed.
If your request is correct that account will get a “SCAM” label and his business channel or group will close temporarily.
To get a better result, I suggest providing a complete explanation. if you got a “SCAM” sign for no reason, use @notoscam and try to fix the problem.
Your competitors may want to destroy your Telegram account by reporting you as a scammer but every problem has a solution!
