(JaiChai) Phishing Scam De Jour…
Just got this comment on my latest post on hive.blog (“(JaiChai) Torum — Random acts of Kindness/Integrity… “ https://hive.blog/hive-114105/@jaichai/jaichai-torum-random-acts-of-kindness-integrity).
It was from a high ranking blogger (64) account.
“Great Post Keep it up. if you haven’t get the free hive prize, worth atlast $400 based on your hive profile reputation you should get it ASAP, Maybe few days left for their airdrop. sign in with your hive account to claim it here: Get Free Hive NOW”
I replied to the commenter shilling the $400 “based on your reputation” scheme with this:
I don’t mean to offend, but I have been hacked in the past for falling for something that resembles this setup and I am now rightfully cautious…
Immediately after sending my reply, a longtime online friend @coininstant (hive.blog) sent me this:
“No, I think it’s the scammers. Just look at it, not a real domain name. I’m not gonna even click it, however I’m sure it doesn’t use keychain, or hivesigner, and also wants your key. What do you think?? I was just about to post the same thing as you, glad you did it though. Don’t click, just say no!”
Lesson: No matter what anything says it is, DYOR! Otherwise, you’ll become another statistic among the millions of scammed users every quarter…
In Lak’ech, JaiChai
