"EOS Official Chat"
"EOS Official Community "eosofficialcommunity"
"EOS OFFICIAL COMMUNITY "EOSIONETWORKOFFICIAL".

In the first group on Facebook, you can see that they extend the official domain eosnetwork.com with "all-total.site" which will forward you to their scam website. Do NOT click on links in this Facebook group:
Please Do NOT click on links. Please report this group.
Click the "..." and then click "Report Page"
In the first group on Telegram, the third message is from a fake “Yves La Rose.” Firstly, the username is incorrect. Instead of @YvesLARose, they spelled Yves username as “YvesLERose.”
Secondly, the only admin in this group is EOS_Support, which is not the official EOSsupport.io. EOS Support will never DM or ask you for your private keys.
Please Do NOT trust this telegram user with the handle @HelpEOS!
In the second group, most of the members don't have a profile pictures. These are all bots. One of the first messages with a profile picture is from a bot with the profile picture of Matthew Darwin - EOS Nation.
Instead of @mdarwin, the username is hidden.
In the second and third group, the scammers ask you to send BNB to an address and promise users additional EOS. Do NOT send any BNB Tokens to these addresses. You risk loosing all your tokens.
