Glad to see it was noticed and someone notified them. This trick may seems foolish and stupid to some, but some people believe in those, and send them money. Is there a way to make people more aware of scammers? Could a list of scammers be stickied on some of the topics?

Hello people, We are Anonymous Team. On 24 November 2015 We found a New exploit in Blockchain Android App allows you to force anyone to give you their bitcoins!

Let me explain what happens here.

Step 1-4 are totally valid. Nothing scammy there.
But from step 5, it gets interesting.

The part where they ask you to scan their QR-code "that contains the exploit"
Let's see what exploit this QR code contains: https://zxing.org/w/decode?u=http%3A%2F%2Fi.imgur.com%2F8yLm9fm.png
Code:
bitcoin:16ydFh8y5np1GffjZSxe8DMBFK5BaxYtRV?amount=0.07720577

So, an address and an amount of bitcoin is their exploit? Thats strange, isn't it.
Whats the next step?

Quote
Now click Send [...]

Hm, I wonder what happens, if I give my wallet an address, and amount and the comand to send bitcoin...
Rest of the tutorial is just blaberabla.

And that is what happens when you do what they want you to do.
Not the link is the problem (it might also be, idk, didnt check it),
since as you see, they didnt even include it in the second message i recieved.

The "trick" happens when you scan the QR code and click the send-button.
You were all so afraid of links, you just forgot to check the QR-code.
