This article was published on June 8th, 2020 ... and today it is republished because the phishing site is still practicing its tricks to entrap beginners into its nets to steal their money ... Even the original Blockchain site changed its logo as a kind of passive response to this fraudulent site!
Warning from a phishing site to steal your balance in a Blockchain
There is no doubt that you saw the advertisement for this site... There is also no doubt that you thought about registering for it in the hope of quick profits from the imaginary Airdrop... He tells you that you will win more than 5 BTC... Is there anyone who believes this pointless? Yes... Unfortunately, many people believe this naive talk and run after fake profits!
Why do you suspect it is a phishing site?!
From the first time I saw this site, I suspected it was a phishing site... It is easy for anyone who wants to see it easy!
For example, look at the site’s form and use it. The name of the Blockchain... The most famous and most reliable wallet .. Then lift your eyes up to see that the link has nothing to do with the Blockchain wallet!
The second point that I like to draw your attention to is ... that silly sentence: CLAIM YOUR AIRDROP UP TO 5 BTC !!
This is totally illogical .. Think a little about it ... Where is this Airdrop that gives you more than 5 BTC..that is more than $ 57,000 !! Who believes this pointless ?!
The third and most important point that confirmed to me that it is a phishing site is to support the Blockchain itself!
How did I know it was a phishing site?
I contacted Blockchain support (the original.. not the phishing!) And we had a useful conversation .. I would have liked to have it published in full but he didn't allow me.
I will refer to a Blockchain support representative with two letters: (A.B) and they are not the first two letters of his name, out of respect for his desire not to disclose it.
But I will put here simple parts of the conversation that took place with him, in which he assured me that this site is for phishing and that its goal is to steal the balance of its victims in Blockchain...
When I asked him, for example, about the site, this was his answer:
"The link is a phishing link. please warn your friends".
When I asked him why he had requested 12 words in a Blockchain, this was his response:
"With all the information required, this person can steal your funds".
This is what matters to me... It is my goal from the beginning .. I have not believed this site since I first saw it as I mentioned earlier .. I certainly did not believe it... But others may believe it...These are my goal... Perhaps someone reads this and takes my warning seriously. ..I would be a reason to save him from this phishing site.
In the end .. what would you do if you gave this site your information ?!
Perhaps someone has fallen into the trap of this phishing site .. willingly provided his information to give him the full opportunity .. what should a person like this do?
The answer comes from Mr. (A.B) as well... He says:
"You can protect your 12 words to prevent this, in any case, it got leaked.
Without your passphrase, it will not be able to access your funds".
You should check your balance, then, accelerate the protection of your 12 words as he says .. and change your password to protect your funds.
The other game: Congratulations!! you are one of the 100 winners of the Blockchain Awards!
