While this warning was posted at least 120 days ago by PowHashClear -- the problem still persists:
Darknet Markets STILL has instructions posted with a link to a scam Helix Light.

The instructions are these: [https://darknetmarkets.org/a-simple-guide-to-safely-and-effectively-mixing-bitcoins].  These instructions contain this scam website:  http://grams7eu3phkfrt3.onion/helix/light/

This website is also listed as a scam at: https://www.reddit.com/r/grams/wiki/scamlist.

Many people have lost money to this scam website, including me.

The official and legit website that works is here: http://grams7enufi7jmdl.onion/helix/light
This path can be verified at https://www.reddit.com/r/grams/wiki/scamlist.

The website looks inactive since 2015. No news or tweets posted since 2 years ago. There is really nothing we can do against them. I don't even think they have a BitcoinTalk account.

Users should be more careful and research on more than one website before trusting a link from an unknown website in the internet.

This site comes up first on a Google search for “mixing bitcoins.” 
So it is dangerous, even if it is inactive.  I reported this to Google.

While users should research on more than one website before trusting a link,
I thought it useful to re-post the previous warning that appeared on bitcointalk.
