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.

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

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.
