I would like to add another thing to your list. Some airdrops ask KYC documents to get their tokens. It seems like a scam. They are going to steal your identification documents. Be careful guys. My personal advice is don't submit your identification documents to airdrop forms.

Thanks so much for this information it will really help me as I've been struggling to weed out which airdrops are scams, are there any other factors that I could look at when determining whether an airdrop is a scam? or will this information provided be enough to differentiate between scams and legitimate airdrops ?

Just because they implement KYC doesn't mean they're automatically out to scam you or steal your data. That being said, this does put them in better position to do such things, so you should always be careful about sharing your information. I strongly advise against it as it's almost never worth it.

Airdrops are free, if you need to transfer ETH to the other party!
This is definitely a scam. This is a scam designed by scammers!
Never reveal your private key! This is the most important thing!

Very insightful.. I was close to falling for the submit private keys. They said I needed to verify my wallet address by verifying my wallet, using my wallet keys.. Be careful guys.

3. Airdrop by requesting to enter privatekey

Almost anything that would seem suspicious to you (maybe your guts told you so), are probably scams. Airdrops usually asks for your email, username, and ETH address but if things turned out like this, asking for your private keys and such, then it's probably a SCAM and it's trying to phish your datas. If tou think you've been phished, immediately reset your private keys. You might save your account with this.
