Scam alert, be careful. Don't lose your hard earned money to scammers.

I just decided to bring this up to help especially the newbies and the lazy ones.

  • Firstly What is phishing link?

Phishing is the process of gathering sensitive information from victims such as usernames, passwords, and credit card details etc. Mainly for a malicious reasons, by disguising as the official site or entity. Read more from Wikipedia

  • Never search exchange site on google, even if you do, make sure you cross check the link or ask trusted friends if you don't know the main link.

Check below screenshot, I decided to search "cryptopia" on google, a phishing link was the first result.

Same thing applies to many others exchange too. We should almost be careful.
