Phishing site reported - steemrobot(dot)ga

in steemit •  2 years ago  (edited)

Never give your password and double check on which website you really are!

I already warned you about several (potential) scam attempts (see bottom of this post for a list of them). Here is a new one. Thanks to @my451rfor catching my attention and notifying about this new scam.

Scam Description

The scammer publish the following comment on user’s post

or

If you click on the link in the comment, you will be redirected to the following site:

If you click on the “Click to Subscribe” button, the following page will be displayed:

The webpage is a fake SteemConnect login page!

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

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 similiar pishing attemps, 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 shoud 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!

It is a nice post thank you for sharing me and thank you for following me I am waiting for your next post

Good afternoon @arcange, this is to inform you that my account was piratiada yesterday. Thank God and my account was recovered, but my comments I make to the users I follow; They seem hidden.

I also want to know why if I had reputation 47, because now I have 0.65. I would like to know what is the procedure to be able to continue working in Steemit.

My account was created on December 26, 2017 and until yesterday's accident my work had never been stained. I am not a scammer, nor a spammer. Please help me.

Greetings @ fuentesjo3006.

He tried to get me too
