It goes like this, I joined an airdrop and it sent me an email said that they want to verify my identity, at the end of the verification, it said i need to sign a message by my private key.It's a fake MEW address, and the domain name is extremely similar.
I'm writing for those who are enthusiastic for airdrops, never give your private key to others.
yes it is very important to keep your private key in such a way, because asking for a private key is often done by scammers
if someone asks for your private key, surely it is a scammer

Dont know if its a good idea to take part in Airdrops now.
I joined like 50 of them and got tokens only once for like $2-3, that doesnt even worth it

That is one of the important rule that we must follow (don't give your private key to anyone else)or else you will get nothing in the end,they will take all of your money in your wallet.
