Beware Scam "Your last post has been copied by Felixjaspeer"

in #steemit3 years ago

Hey everyone,

How is everyone today? So on my last post a got a weird comment from someone that stated my post had been copied. Curious I clicked it and ended up on steemiit.ga. You may notice that there is an extra i in steemit. When I tried to scroll down I got a pop-up that asked for my account and password. Now I didn't do it and I am assuming that if I did I would be missing some SBD and steem. I flagged the message, which is the first flag I ever did on this site and now the comment has been removed from my post.

If you get this message please do not input your account info, especially your password. If the site is stemit, steeemit, steemiit, or anything that is not steemit.com do not trust it. I do not want people to be lose anything to a scammer. I am curious to see if the comment gets posted on this post, that would be ironic.

here is the link to the scam post:

I am happy for you you didn't put in your details and took the necessary action at the right time. I read on a post of how a guy lost his account through this type of fake sites forged to get peoples login details.

We must be all vigilant, first check if there is not https:// in the address you are about to login, then secondly the correct spelling steemit.com. Nice of you to enlighten others as well @whatageek
