Hello everybody,
Today, I searched bitcointalk on Google and found bitcointalk.to (at the top of the result). This site is very very similar to bitcointalk.org, I could only find the different when I failed to login with my user/pass (I signed up with bitcointalk.org).
What is problem?
If it is fake site, I think we have to report them.

Change your password as soon as possible. I'm 100% sure that there is no other clone of this site. There is an archive but it is nothing to do with the site you are mentioning.

Does it appear like this?

[ad] bitcointalk.to

If so do not trust the link because it is an advertisement meaning that one can put any URL by paying advertisement fee so it is can be a phishing site.
As already noted by iasenko above, it seems that bitcointalk.to exists since last year, you can check the related threads:

That site is weird.
Somehow it contains all the threads from here, but stopped one month ago.
It looks like a complete copy pf this forum made one month ago.
So my guess ... it looks like a scam / phishing attempt.

funny comparison on my account  Grin

That phishing website now has your username/password to THIS site.  Change it right away!

There is only one bitcointalk and that ends with  the domain<.org>, any other site with any other domain is just a scam trying to steal the data like username and password from the owners of bitcointalk.org
So without any confirmation or announcement from the moderators of this forum avoid launching any other domain that states to be bitcointalk.

I am afraid phising owner already change the email and Poof, Goobye your account. Embarrassed
But, i am still dont get why this user come to unknown site and easily log his/her account. Maybe this is a valueable lesson, be a carefull-person.
