Phishing site reported - steemiz

in steemit •  last year  (edited)

Never give your password on suspect or unknown websites!!

I already warned you about several scam attempts (see bottom of this post for a list of them). Here is a new one. Thanks to @scrooger for reporting it to me.

Scam Description

The scammer publish the following comment on user’s post

If you click on the link in the comment, you will be redirected to a fake Steemit website:


NOTE: the domain name displayed may be different from the above screenshot

After a while, the page will fade out and a popup will appear asking for your credentials:


NOTE: the domain name displayed may be different from the above screenshot

If you enter your credentials (DO NOT DO IT), you will be redirected to the the real steemit.com website.

The goal of the creator of this website is to steal your credentials to hack your account and funds!

Preventive action activated

I will add any account sending phishing links to the black list of my Warning-Bot and it will issue warnings with a link to this post, notifying users of the malicious activity of those accounts.

If you find similar phishing attempts, contact me on steem.chat

To protect yourself, you can:

  • always double check before clicking on a link, especially if this links take you away from steemit.com.
  • verify the reputation of people writing comments on your posts. A user with a low reputation should trigger you attention.

Previous threat alerts

If you missed them, please find here the previous alerts I published:

reminder

A bit of paranoia is the basis of security.
There are a few simple rules to follow in order to avoid having your account hacked:

Rule 1: NEVER, I repeat, NEVER use or give your owner key or password!

Rule 2: Use your posting key to login, post and vote on trusted websites like steemit.com or busy.org.

Rule 3: NEVER give your active key as this key allows to control your funds! Only use your active key for special operation like money transfer or account update on trusted websites like steemit.com.

Rule 4: Anywhere else, if you are requested to provide any of the above key: RUN AWAY!!!

4 simple rules. It's not much to remember. Follow them scrupulously, and you will only have to laugh at unsuccessful attempts from scammers.

Spread the words, resteem this post to your friends, and you will make the platform safer.

Thanks for reading!

Blacklisted! Thanks for notifying @dylanhobalart

I had clicked on the comment you flagged, maaan that looks so similar! I was surprised to see that steemit was asking for my password again, was lazy to type it in so I ignored! That was a very close call!!! Thanks a lot man!! Really appreciate it!

Glad to read you did not fall into the trap.

You are the most awesome witness! Honestly I am blown away at how hard you work to make this platform great. Thank you so much, you're an inspiration to us all.

Thank you very much for your information.

Sir @arcange , I have made this mistake today and after that, I am here after seeing your comment on @mehta 's post ..... but sir, I put wrong username and password ..... Sir , is there any problem .....???

Better to play it safe. I suggest you to change your password.

@arcange is it possible to change the master password ???

Yes, click on your picture, then "Change password"

@arcange thanks .......

Thanks for someone checking up such things

Wow, intense. Like I've said before, I never click on links in comments. I go to google and search for it myself. If someone did post my post somewhere without my permission, I'll find it, and I'll find them. (lol that sounds stalkingly creepy hehe)

Thank you very much of this great information👍

Thanks for these posts. @ilze seems to be running this scam too. The account has a high rep which makes it look genuine.

I guess @ilze account has been hacked.
