Impersonator

Definition of
Impersonator

An impersonator is a person or organization who uses someone else's identity in a community. In cryptospace communities on Telegram, impersonators use the same profile information and photo of somebody else with just a slight difference in the username which can be unnoticed, bluffing others into thinking that they are the real person that they claim to be. In most cases, the main goal of an impersonator is to trick community members into illegal activities, fraudulent transactions, scams, or shills.
