Today i received a mail from admin@xyo.network

This is the mail i received:


The domain is a phishing site that steals your private key.

Be carefull and always double check when receiving links on email/telegram/wherever. The scammers are finding new ways to get your personal information every day, so be carefull!

They are not good at scamming. The real URL was exposed and that's a good thing because the recipients of the email will recognize easily that it is a phishing link.

It's quite an obvious one.

If you click on the link that is included inside the email, you will be directed to a website that is obviously an imposter of myetherwallet.com. This phishing site asks you for your private keys to claim an airdrop, which is something that never happens with legitimate sites.

You should always verify the legitimacy of any "free money" schemes, whether airdrops, giveaways, or investment opportunities. Also, make sure that you look out for phishing emails sent from obviously false email addresses. If you use your common sense, these can be easily avoided.

Guys, the fake URL is too obvious. Always double check the crypto related links before clicking on it!
