SCAM Alert: Do NOT log in on!

in scam •  10 months ago

I just received a 0.001 SBD transfer from @gtg.witnesses who is currently sending a small amount to many other Steem accounts. He pretends to give away SBD rewards on behalf of @gtg, but this account and website has nothing to do with @gtg.

@gtg is a known and respected witness I have voted for. He would never ask for login credentials.

The website pretends to redirect you to to login to your Steem account and to claim your reward, but you are not actually being redirected. A filthy phishing attempt. If you login you expose your password to the owner of this website!

Never give away your Steem private keys!

Obviously that's a scam. No one should ever trust such messages.
Not to mention that it's just stupid. Everyone voting for me should already know (by reading my posts) to not leak their keys!

Treasure your passwords /パスワードを大切に by @fukako

Thanks for the heads up.

Well received. Whenever it is too good, hard to be true. Just be careful.
Desperate moves require desperate measures.
Thanks for this advice. Whenever someone send you any link to check if you are not use to it, just give up.

Keep on steemin'

Thank you for sharing... Don't share your private keys And always say no to scam.

It's amazing how desperate some folks can be. Scamming others of their hard earned sbd.
Thanks for the heads up @penguinpablo.


and many of them not so hard earned ;)
but it's another thing


Hard-earned or not, stealing from other people is wrong!.


no question about it

Great heads up, @penguinpablo.

So all apps using steemconnect go through And if the url begins differently at the login page, it's a bogus?

Well, I never.... (I heard about a similar thing on ebay existing so naturally, steemit will be a victim of its own success someday - that day being now, I guess.)

Any chance someone can get his scam site closed down? Who would one report him to?


v1.steemconnect is effectively the same as steemconnect, here?

I'm a bit green. ;)

Ps. The secure / not secure part that precedes the URL - can we go off that when deciding if something's safe or not?


v1.steemconnect is effectively the same as steemconnect, here?

Yes, it's a subdomain of the same domain.

thanks alort for the information sir.
their are many fake sites trying to dupe individuals thank once more @penguinpablo

사기꾼이 판을 치는 군 요.

Well spotted. Thanks for that. It was just a matter of time before scammers started targeting Steemit.

Thanks for the alert!

I just got this exact same message. Never lose, use or give out your passwords even on steemit.
The first three rules of steemit.
Thanks for the warning @penquinpablo this is where a site wide notification system would be handy? Resteem to my followers. I do hope they are paying attention?

Thx for he heads up!
Not that I was planning to give away my keys, but it is good that important people like yourself on Steemit, inform and warn other about scams.

Thank you for sharing this
We must to share any info about scammers

Why the hell people do this type of things?
just because of jealousy?

This is bad..really bad especially for the minnows
now i can't even trust any third party sites anymore.
who knows?
I might not be the only one with my password.

Thanks for the headsup my friend. & to the scammer reading this... Well, let's just say I don't like you very much. Douchebag.

The website pretends to redirect you to to login to your Steem account and to claim your reward, but you are not actually being redirected. A filthy phishing attempt. If you login you expose your password to the owner of this website!

@penguinpablo is right.
Thanks for educating my ignorant mind sir. I love you.

Thanks for warning and sharing information @penguinpablo

dear penguinpablo your good post... i like your all post... I look forward to every one of your #post..thank you so very much for #sharing..

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks a great deal. Resteemed for visibility.

In ecosystems like steem, where losing (or in this case exposing) your private keys can mean at best losing your liquid tokens before you recover your account and at worst losing the account forever, phishing attacks are really dangerous. Thanks for the warning, upvoted and resteemed!

Aaah, the good ol’ phishing techniques.. but there is a solution for it.. and that is common sense.. common sense is the best anti virus, anti trojan, anti phishing technique we will ever see.. Never Ever put your login credentials somewhere shady..

This is a clever attempt to defame a noble witness..
absolutely disgusting behaviour.. the amount of effort they made to create this page and everything, theh could have written 2-3 good posts to earn money through respectable means..

It's so cool I want to be like you

Thank you for the heads up!

I got a message like that myself.

wow!!! Thanks

Thank you, this may be one of your better posts and we the steemers thank you for looking out for us.

Thank you so much for sharing this. I am a member of @newbieresteemday, which began as a resteem day (pretty obvious, I know:) for new people to help give the good posts some extra visibility, but has since grown into a large community who welcomes as well as supports, educates and mentors new and not-so-new folks. Of course @gtg wouldn't be asking for private keys, but what might seem like pretty obvious information here to most people, it might be invaluable information to someone just starting out. I'm coming back here as the @newbieresteem account and resteeming this to our feed. Thank you so much! Cheers :)

Thanks for the warning!

Congratulations you have been resteemed as part of #newbieresteemday's top posts for the day! ...

thank you for raising awareness of this phishing scam my friend!

steemit need to have a look at quickly resolving such thieves with a mac address // ip log and ban. next version ! good shout PP, I had a similar one the other day which supposedly alerted me to a copy of my post by @speckofdust which looked like it was redirecting me to log in....

I am only one month old here, but I like to read and to find out how steemit works, I have been offered to get more upvotes, but I have always liked everything earned the hard way, I have 3 teaching jobs, I live in Venezuela which is in a huge economical crisis, but I am grateful to God and now of course to steemit. I am also grateful to people like you who teach important things to the newbies like myself, thank you!

Thank you for sharing this.

Thanks for the heads up.
