Roskachestvo stated that advertising is disguised as author’s posts in the channel, and therefore misleads the user. This increases the likelihood that a person will click on the ad, since they trust the channel’s author. In fact, administrators do not see ads.
In the first days after the appearance of advertising, users saw posts promoting channels about cryptocurrencies, investments, etc. Roskachestvo said that such posts could promise easy enrichment. There may also be hidden malicious links to fraudulent sites (whether they were real or not, it is not reported).
Roskachestvo urged users to be wary of advertisements on Telegram.
