Beware of impostors and scams trying to mimic Viewly

in viewly •  last year

We have noticed a recently created Russian copycat of Viewly, sneakily named Viuly. At first, we found it funny, but soon the frightening realization set in - some people will unfortunately fall for it.

We believe the impostor is trying to capitalize on the upcoming view.ly token sale, by confusing the newcomers and/or taking advantage of people that hear about Viewly sale, but miss it.

Where can I find the real Viewly?

Which sites are not related to Viewly

  • viuly.com
  • viuly.io
  • viewly.com*

*viewly.com is not fraudulent, they just don't want to sell their domain at this time.

We expect more sites to pop up, some of them more obviously fake (ie. direct copies of the website), as Viewly gains traction. We will keep this list up to date on our blog. If you find an impostor or misleading site, please let us know.

Be vigilant, stay safe. - Viewly Team

It's awful that we have to contend with scammers like this so early on. Resteemed and I'll make a seperate post as well.

Thank you :)

Hi Furion,

Thank you for sharing such important information.

BTW: I suggest you remove links to these fraudulent sites,to avoid the user click and visit them by mistake. 😱

Good advice, updated.

Thanks for clarification, I saw some news on yahoo and was wondering if that was actually you or not. Looks like another money-grab to me, with impossible features.

yes , I have already checked that website . After seeing message on telegram .
Even website design is kind of similar as viewly ! LOL

Thanks for your call furion. Resteemed to pass the voice

Gosh I dislike these scammers so much @furion

@furion - thanks for alerting us - this is so not on - have resteemed

Good spotting @furion - have upvoted and resteemed your post

Scammers are everywhere. Thanks for sharing on this site anywayz

Thanks for the heads up. Sad that people don't hesitate lose their integrity when it comes to money.

As Steem Gains Value and Attention (like now), the scams will be more frequent and more aggressive.

Stay safe, steemians! Good looking out @furion

very helpful with notice that there is a copy of Viewly. thank you

May try this. Nice post my friend

Thx, good work @furion
There are others like him?

Thanks @furion for warn us!! Have resteemed..

Thank you for this post. Very on point. I will not have known.

@furion do you mind if I share this post on my personal blog? It's off-site I don't mean resteem, I'll run the first paragraph and link back to your STEEMIT post here. Sound cool?

Sounds great to me, thank you :)

Sure anytime and thank you.

All Done, Is there somewhere private I can send you a link? I wouldn't mind doing this for more posts in the future.

I have no idea what Telegram is lol. My bad, No FB or Twitter?

Annoying when people do that. Upvoted and resteemed.

Same thing for the Steemit impostors. I clicked a link recently on a post that promised a good trick to make money on steemit. You were then redirected to a website that looked exactly like steemit and then you were asked to log-in... I think you could guess where I'm going with this...

Obviously I didn't do it, but people will fall for it. I'm not sure if that's a bad thing though, as people who are that stupid probably deserved it.

do you remember the site name?

·

Well, it was like steem.a.abc or something, I'll try looking it up later today. It's not steem.a.abc, but something like it, if I remember it correctly.
