pretty obvious i'd say

Just to many scammer around here. I guess we all have to learn it! I have to admit I fell for a scam once (gladly only lost about 200 bucks) but it was completely my fault. It was back when I started with cryptos and I had literally no clue about what I was doing. That is why I tell everybody new in crypto: DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!

Many scams are obvious scams like the one you write about and literally everybody that knows the general basics about crypto will not fall for it. Sadly there are still to much people out there involved in the market with literally no clue.

I agree with you. I know most people around me don't even know what they are doing in crypto. They fall for anything and everything they see.

Thank you very much for your contribution, it is important that you share and that we actually share this information, because many of us have had to create those wallets. thanks for the message, I'll share it

Thanks for informing us about this latest scam!

You are welcome.

@planetmarketers has set 0.200 SBD bounty on this post! logo_for-light-bg_1000.png
What is a bounty exactly?

A bounty is money sent to a post to be distributed to the users commenting on it. It provides a way to reward users directly and works in addition to the steem/sbd they receive from the blockchain. It works independently of SteemPower.

You create a bounty by sending any amount of sbd/steem to @steem-bounty together with a post-url in the memo.

How can I earn a bounty Users are then competing for the bounty by writing their answers to the post in comments that will achieve upvotes from the community and especially the bounty creator. The money of the bounty gets distributed to all top level comments of the post at the same time when the post is paid out (7 Days after it was written). How much everyone gets depends on the votes the comments received. The sender of the bounties votes are weighted higher so that she decideds where 80% of the bounty money goes and all other votes determine the rest.

@steem-bounty does all of this for you automatically. You can use this service to automatically pay out a challenge, ask a hard question or simply to reward the people that interact with you.
