I'm not sure where to post this, so mods please feel free to move or delete if this is old news or not useful.
 
Searching for something just now, I arrived at a site bitcointalk dot to (not org) which seemed to be an exact copy of this site, except that it treated every visitor as a guest and asked for ID and password, presumably fishing for bct passwords.

Are you really a Legendary account here or you are a newbie or this is a bought account? Do you have a staked bitcoin address to prove the ownership of this account?

I am sorry the question you asked was never expected from a Legendary. We have talked about this thousand times (I guess).

I could not stand the lies against me anymore. I can not prove them wrong too. It's better I live in peace.
So, I am willingly locking mdayonliner. Thank you BitcoinTalk. Be addictive, be a Bitcoiner.

Sorry - I've never seen the discussion nor the phenomenon and I searched before I posted.

Is there a warning somewhere for newbs? It seems like an easy trap to fall into.

It's a trap. Yes, this is a phishing site. Not only this - there are a lot more. I suggest you to be careful about them. Bookmark the original URL: https://bitcointalk.org

This's another phishing list:
Code:
bitcointalk.[to]
bitcointalk.[net]
bitcointa[ll]k.[org]
bitcointa[I]k.[org]

There are several discussions about these sites as well.

I am aware of this, my friend who is a legendary told me about this, so I am aware of this, that is why I bookmarked the bitcointalk.org site so I am safe and will only be landed on the right website, so many phishing sites meant to steal information and bitcointalk is one of their big targets.

Thanks for that. I guess I always came to bct from my bookmark and it was just a fluke that I went to a phishing site from an external search result. No kidding - I had never encountered them before. Luckily I didn't log in.

Yes. That's a fake version of BitcoinTalk, so don't try to login with it (the captcha isn't even working, so falling for this is pretty hard).

This prevents accidentally accessing it (ty Loyce):
I totally fell for the cloned site, ~
I have added this line to /etc/hosts
Code:
127.0.0.1       bitcointalk.to
Now my computer can't access that phishing site anymore.

You can do the same for the other fake websites.

bitcointalk.to = bitcointalk.org ?
Is Bitcointalk.to same of Bitcointalk.org ?
Fake bitcointalk site ?

Plus to bitcointalk.to

I found three more clone:

- thebitcointalk.net
- fonstavka.com
- lawcommonentrance.com

Plus

Found an interesting address
Code:
47.52.58.235:8009
This is the main page of forum.
Interestingly, all internal links lead to real Bitcointalk.

It is clearly a phishing site, avoid accessing this site. I'm sure you know what will happen if you use your account from the real bitcointalk to the fake one.

It's just another way that the creator who created the fake bitcointalk to appear as real bitcointalk that may/will trap someone and not just newbies on accessing this phishing site. Even LoyceV fell for it as quoted by TryNinja.
