Phishers send you a message with a link to a website that looks just like MyCrypto, EtherDelta, Paypal, or your bank, but is not the real website. They steal your information and then steal your money.

  • Install EAL or MetaMask or Cryptonite by Metacert or the MyCrypto Chrome Extension to block malicious websites.
    Always check the URL: https://URL.com.
    Always make sure the URL bar has COMPANY, Inc. in green.
    Do not trust messages or links sent to you randomly via email, Slack, Reddit, Twitter, etc.
    Always navigate directly to a site before you enter information. Do not enter information after clicking a link from a message or email.
    Install an AdBlocker and do not click ads on your search engine (e.g. Google).

If the opportunity seems too good to be true, then it probably is. Stay away.

This is a pretty good suggestion, as a reminder for fellow members, not exposed to pishing, I also have additional advice, everyone should not carelessly use any public internet access outside the office or home, better use the internet network in your own home  Wink

There many ways to protect ones account from phishers. Do not entertain people that wants you to invest with a return of 30% of your investment, do not click unknown links thats was being sent on your email, better to delete them immediately once you recieve them.

Thanks for this information. I can also add to it that if by any chance you noticed you entered your details into a phishing website, best advice is to change your password immediately.

The very best option to stay away from phishing sites is to bookmark the legit site. Easy as that, if not bookmark don't proceed.
