As I understand, he gave you link to a phishing website? Good that you didn't tried to login. Otherwise I would recommend to change your password ASAP.
I see that this guy was already tagged as account farmer in past. I suspect that he is hacking accounts with help of phishing links. If victim tries to login on phishing website, he just collect login details, change password and later sell account.
Report the PM to Admin, so he get perm ban.
Scammers can't get ban on bitcointalk, but I think he can be banned for spreading phishing links. Report him to global moderator would be a good idea.

Yes, Sometimes even Google results show mirror sites above than the original site. The phishing is gaining momentum these days and it's not just about Bitcointalk but even this is happening in the case of popular crypto individuals or exchanges. Just go through tweets of any popular crypto exchange, you will find dummy accounts with exactly same information replying with a fake giveaway. Since crypto is all about self-responsibility, one should take extreme precaution while taking any decision.

Scammers can't get ban on bitcointalk,

Why scammers can't get banned from the forum. Is there any rule like that ?. But I have seen lots of people have been banned due to posting same thing again and again/ sending PMs/ etc. So why scammers can't get banned ?

According to forum rules:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=703657.0
Quote
19. Possible (or real) scams and Trust ratings are not moderated (to prevent moderation abuse).

But that guy can be banned because he break 6th rule:

6. No linking to phishing or malware, without a warning and a valid reason. [e]

Thanks for the heads up. Much appreciated.

According to his history, he started at least one bounty program: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1995197.msg19866306#msg19866306

P.S. And this makes for an interesting read: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1983595.0

It gets better. He carries the signature and avatar of this bounty campaign: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2436249.0

Yet, his username isn't on the spreadsheet of their signature campaign. That's nothing though, check the trust rating of that bounty manager (aTriz). I smell a big fat, dead rat there!

I don't get it, does phishing attacks works till now? I thought they are useless nowadays as because everyone knows about them. And I think this user is just wasting his time by sending others a phishing link there is no way that someone will click on that link and fill it with their real username and password. Come on it's 2018 bro no one is stupid enough to do that. It's good that you report to admin he should be perm ban for trying such stupid stuffs.

Yeah, they still work and not only for stealing forum accounts, as in this case, but to steal users money as well. I see so many posts about ETH and tokens stolen from MEW after a person enters his private key on phishing MEW

It's a common thing since bitcointalk accounts are worth quite a lot of money. Even more after the introduction of the merit system.
I'll repeat for those who tend to skip to the last post ignoring the rest of the content:

1. Never click on suspicious links from random people, especially if those links are being PMed to you.
2. Report PM spam, unwanted advertising, links.
3. Check the person's trust page and leave negative trust. Een if this won't be visible as red trust because you aren't trusted yourself, you will be seeing this person as untrusted (painted red) until you decide to remove the comment. This will help you to avoid him later on and possibly make others do the same.
