yes it's true ... now a lot of scams on behalf of airdrop, because right now a lot of bounty hunter looking for airdrop utilized by scamers creating a fake airdrop thread, we must be more careful
when filling out the form, because there are some forms that ask private key of our wallet,
besides they send us an email telling us to follow the link they send, never follow the link on behalf of your wallet (eg myetherwallet) in your email moreover they ask you to enter the private key of your wallet because they try stolen your coin or token in your wallet and this I have ever experienced

these are not airdrops, they are money making machines. they create some crap ICO or something like that and do a little give away (they have lots of free tokens out of thin air, giving away something free for free!) but at the same time they gather lots of information from crypto users such as their Email addresses. they even sell these Emails down the line as lists to many buyers!

and the solution is always easy. that is why throwaway AKA temporary email was created. you make one, receive what you want and throw it away.

What you should remember when you join airdrop. When you see a link that hits you you will go to MyEtherWallet. That's what you do not do because it's a clear Phishing Site. Or ask for a donation to receive your Tokens. This is an offense because we should not have to join the ICO or donate to them. And the one you should do is not to put your Email in use because that might be the way to steal all your information

The last airdrop i looked at wanted you to verify every bitcoin address you had and you would be sent out whatever token it was depending on the amount of bitcoin you hold. I wouldnt bother with any of these, if its an airdrop then its free for a reason =p.

I am aware that a few through the years would have been nice to get hold of but most arent worth the risk in my opinion.

These emails are really alerting! Received some as well, asking to confirm my account and so on. People should really be careful when clicking on any links that are sent via email, especially when the content of that mail are links that will redirect you to online wallet sites and asks you to login or sign up, esp. using your private keys. Some sites really look likes the original site but if you look on the URL, it's a different one. Be careful!

that's what's happening right now. too much airdrop that does not even have a good concept. the impact is very bad, rampant scamers are very unsettling.

Don't apply for the airdrops that don't have at least a good looking project behind it. You can usually notice the bad ones by a bad English grammar, absence of Bitcointalk ann, c/p thread (if you are here for more then month then you have surely noticed that some of the ann threads look almost exactly the same) etc. Also, those calling themselves airdrops when they actually ask for the completion of tasks (and should thus be called bounties) don't have much merit with me.

Also stay away from those created by people with a bad reputation and be very suspicious towards those that hide their identities.

They want to cahtch your email address to send phising site. then they will steal your money from your wallet. Airdrop is nothing you will get no value from airdrop so becareful with those kind of airdrop. you can create tokens in few minutes to give away new coins.

Unfortunately this is everyday in crypto. You never know. Even if you only subscribe to legitimate sites, or whitelist to an ICO, sometimes hackers take your e-mail and you start to receive scam e-mails. They are quite easy to identify though, no problem. You should learn how and take care of yourself.

One reason I'm not interested in airdrop is a scam. There are many ways they do to cheat, by sending e-mails, personal telegram messages and more. And that is not comparable to the results we get. Don't waste time on that.

Contacts are probably sold to the scammers by the airdrop makers. Information is such a valuable thing and coming to the point that these people are selling it to benefit from it.
I have signed up some forms before and I'm also surprised that I keep receiving scam and phishing attempts on my email.

This has been the case for a long time. Some random airdrop where you have to join a telegram and provide them your email address. Sometimes also needs to follow on twitter and Facebook and they provide nothing more than scam. So, firstly make a spam only email address to use in such events and don't join an airdrop without proper project.

If you joined any airdrop, better check if the ongoing or upcoming  ICO are having an airdrop, don't simply fill the form. I've joined an airdrop in the past, and the scammers are collecting my data and I've been receiving a lot of notifications which I don't sign up.

Yes, everyone has to be cautious of the information he or she provides in airdrop forms for those doing airdrops. Do not use email you use for exchanges or official purpose for airdrop, create a fresh email for that. Also, never provide documents for KYC to any airdrop, those with bad intentions might probably sell your data or use it for dubious acts, be careful with information you provide.
