Hello this is just an alert I received this transaction in my wallet yesterday and just wanted to let everyone know.

As everyone knows anyone can send a message to your wallet. Be careful out there and never click on unsolicited links.

I'm not sure if @samstonehill account was compromised or if he is dumb enough to attempt such a silly scam. Either way stay vigilant I expect these types of scams will become more common as the value of crypto continues to increase.

Thanks for the Info. The link even has https:// in the beginning, so it looks legit, but needless to say, it's so easy to mask the actual URL text.

Great post and very informative. @sneakgeekz Have learnt a lot from it.

"security-steemit.com.mx" huh... sound legit. Or maybe not. @ironshield

This is really pathetic now how can someone do that :(
