Hello, community!
Today I received a fake email from Etherdelta. Be careful!!!

Quote
Good afternoon, dear members of EtherDelta!

Today and during the week, EtherDelta has changed its color to black, but it is true that EtherDelta is taking part in Black Friday!
EtherDelta distributes a 0.25 ETH token to each user of our Exchange.

To receive an ETH token, the participant must fill out our form and register!
EtherDelta Form:

After registration a 0.25 ETH token will be transferred to your account.

We thank you for your attention!

I want to ask the community: "How To Fight Back Scams on this forum???"

opening a thread in Scam Accusations or Beginners & Help subforum would have minimal impact
or... you can fight back directly the scammer,
isn't there a way to take down that google form and report its google account?
isn't this stuff considered as abuse of google service, used for scam/phishing?
if the scammer's google account get blocked/deleted that would stop his scam (from that account)
though he could always create more google accounts/forms and spread new links Lips sealed

Just fill out a form,you can get 0.25eth without doing anything, is this possible? Even the most generous airdrops can't do this. Anyone with a brain will not think that this is true. To be honest, this scam is quite poor.
The best way to avoid scam is to think about how likely it is, and don't invest a penny on any project that is so easy to make money.

or create helpful thread how to avoid scams in beginners and help.
Please "don't" [youngbusinessman]... Every single week [usually], there's a new one on that section [made up of repetitive stuff].

opening a thread in Scam Accusations or Beginners & Help subforum would have minimal impact
I have to disagree with you [first part] since it takes only a few days to see these threads show up on google search results.

isn't there a way to take down that google form and report its google account?
isn't this stuff considered as abuse of google service, used for scam/phishing?
Yes [both questions]:

Scams are everywhere these days... I definitely think that the best way to fight scams will be attacking the problem on the root... educating people so that they can avoid scams will be the first step... although some scams are basically impossible to detect, most of them can be avoided if people are educated and stop this "get rich quick" behaviour

Just a to clarify, OP. You have received an email  not a PM in the forum, right?
So what this have to do with the forum? We cannot fight here the spam and scams received by email, we cannot ban/tag them.
If it was a PM from a forum user, then can be a bit easier, but fighting anonymous source it's quite difficult task.
As the previous guys said you can only make a thread here , to inform other users, that's all.

Aside from making Scam Accusation here, It would be great also if you can send the screenshot of the email to the official telegram group of etherdelta, or maybe if you have the ability to create an article regarding Ethredelta fake Announcement then do it.

It is all about decision making. That will either save you or will get you into trouble.

It has been proven alot that you should always think before you click or not to click. If you were that you can create thread to scam accusations section DT can tagged that person if proven but still that cannot guarantee that person out from this forum

Actually OP title and section is wrong. It should be Scam Accusation or Begginer & Help board. Although we can't take any action but people's can aware about it. We saw previously people fall in this kind of trap, even they submit private key. So this post might help others.

@OP can you please move this thread on Scam Accusation board from lower left ? And title should be be careful from fake email of Etherdelta (imo)

~~~
Please avoid full thread quote on future.

You're obviously very new to bitcointalk and probably to crypto in general.  The first rule you should follow here is: don't trust anyone.  Even if a member has a green trust score, that account could have been bought or hacked and they could be looking to scam you.  The one and only time I got scammed here was because I loaned a Sr. Member with green trust some bitcoin, and he never paid me back--and I didn't ask for collateral, which was my 2nd mistake there.

Even trusted members here have been known to go rogue and start scamming, which is why I'm telling you not to trust anyone, at least not completely.  Doing deals here is very risky, and escrow should always be used and if you're lending you should always get collateral of at least 120% of the loan amount.

Finally, if something sounds too good to be true, turn around and run away.  You'll see offers like the one in the OP all the time, either as posts or in PMs.  Fuck that noise and don't waste your time even reading them.  This forum is infested with scammers, so you just need some common sense and a great deal of skepticism.

Really interesting perspective.

On OP theme, I get lots and lots of such scammy emails. The best way I have learned to deal with them is block the account. There are two options: Unsubscribe or block. The unsubscribe do not work in certain respects so I opt for block. Try it.

Sad to say that it is not only here un the forum that people do scamming activity. They are going smarter and smarter everyday on their hacking strategies. I read one time a post here in the forum about a user sending emails with your compromise password and your doings in the email blockmailing you and ask eth or bitcoin to silent the hacker. Relatively the hacker has already gain some crypto.
