I received this PM yesterday:



It has what looks like a BCT link, but when you hover over it you see that it really opens in a different domain (as seen on bottom left). I checked it on my smartphone, and it turns out to be a page that looks identical to the BCT login page, with your name already in the field.. all you need to do is write in your password and click 'login'.

You have been warned.

I've been on the receiving end of this scam twice now in the last 40 days. I've reported two accounts that has sent out that link but as it seems there are way more accounts doing the work.

Good that you are sharing it. It's a really lame scam attempt and I truly hope that nobody has fallen for it. Would be a shame.
