I consider all of those links suspicious and I will not click in any.

This is the only legit website for this campaign. There is no Google form or any other address.

https://www.blockchain.com/getcrypto

They are not giving cryptocurrency for free. They are paying you $25 for an identity verification (kyc). You will have to send the documents like driver license or passport to receive the Airdrop and link them to your id

http://blockchain-btc.space/ is obviously a sh*t phishing site.

Quote
Why does Stellar use Google Form?
Not everyone will visit the official site https://www.stellar.org/, and not every member will find our AirDrop. The official guide decided to create a Google form.

Another obvious sh*t for obvious reason.

Warning for all those newbies who are not familiar how to deal on every site they will encounter on the web. Always used your common sense or assistance to the community. Might be a hassle way for other but it will save you.

Just proceed to blockchain.com and don't go with any suspicious link that also tells they are giving an airdrop for stellar.

The site is newly registered as of 2019 it's obvious that this site is a scam.

Can you also share with us the email they use or received from the fake airdrop?

So that we can block this email from our email.

There's probably a lot of this. I saw a similar case few weeks ago here where they impersonated blockchain.info and had a phishing link on the tutorial vid posted. (Ref: http://archive.is/7iy5G)

Be very careful everyone, make double checking a habit!

And I saw the screenshot op! no one should really trust a guy who spells crypto as "cripto"  Grin

Freakin scammers LOL. Good luck trying to convince people to click on your link if you can't even spell "crypto" right.

Anyway, thanks for the heads up OP. If you're being bombarded with such emails, it's probably a good idea to change your email. If you collect airdrops and such, use a secondary dummy email.

Thank you for alerting the community, OP. However, I suggest you deactivate the hyperlinks to those sites so that people don't mistakenly click on them.

People will though. Lured in by the promise of some free token, even if the token is complete trash, worthless, and might never actually hit an exchange, people will pay no attention to the blatantly obvious warning signs. They will be quite happy to enter their seed on some shady website. They will be quite happy to send all their details, a selfie, and copies of their passport and driver's license to a complete stranger. The reason these scams continue to exists is because people continue to fall for them. Same with scam ICOs. If people actually took 2 minutes to engage their brain and realise they are being conned, these scams would all disappear because they would no longer be profitable for the scammers.

Greed is an ugly emotion.

Oh definitely; and it's very very unfortunate. These types of scams wouldn't be spreading around the internet if they weren't effective. It's just quite baffling how people still fall for these scams, knowing that there has been a lot of past and present incidences already, and also knowing how bad this scam was spread(as I pointed out due to the "cripo" misspelling). Greedy is definitely an ugly emotion; but you know what's worse? Greed + ignorance. That's just 'next level'.

Wasn't this airdrop long over since December? I remembered signing up for it but was a few days late so nothing left for me.

The legitimate airdrop of blockchain.com is already a few months old yes, but this right here, what OP is reporting is a scam masquerading as the legitimate stellar airdrop, where they would ask the potential victims to login into a phishing site masquerading as the legitimate blockchain.com wallet site.

The site is already showing as a malicious site on Netcraft, and as a Phishing Site on Fortinet and Kaspersky. Google Safe Browsing also gives an immediate message on my environment, and does not allow access to the site.

I often check links on the VirusTotal website (https://www.virustotal.com) just in case, although being wary and avoiding links to anything that has the slightest hint of being dodgy is the first safeguard.

I guess airdrops are a common ground for attempts as such, since they are often performed by fairly newcomers, and in addition people may drop their defences more if something is supposedly for free.

Yes, is a identify verification hide as a giveaway. And fun to how they offer $125,000,000 as a giveaway, that's just a bait too. I like their service as a wallet, but this tricky move makes me doubt about if trust in them or not...

By the way, I don't think they have 5 million users, that's what we get if we divide $125m/$25... Is just a nasty move from what we all think was a good business.

Yes, blockchain.com really does have this airdrop but these scammers are taking advantage of it and riding the boat for airdrop lovers.

Stellar Airdrop in collaboration with Blockchain.com is giving away a total of $125,000,000 worth of Stellar Tokens (XLM).
If it sounds too good to be true it is.
Simple as that, best protection against scams.

My guess is that OP probably used his email(where he received the scam email) on some scammy crypto airdrop. I'm pretty sure most of the airdrops are just schemes to be able to collect emails from their victims.
