Now, I'm just amazed by how diligent the owner of the .TO extension of bitcointalk to continue his business. Now it's up again, it's just updated its host today Shocked

⚠⚠️⚠~Beware on active phishing Electrum websites~⚠⚠️⚠ (Collection list updated)

It is not strange efforts and new topic, but I believe the GreatArkansas can find something has not presented in the OP to update it with more details.
Electrum wallet is a big, and popular wallet due to its convenience, hence it is a most wanted targets from attackers.

Thanks for info's and tips mate this is very useful, you might want to add Anti Miner or similar extension to prevent and to stop coin miners on our browser, cryptojackers and block mining scripts from our CPU.

Wanted to suggest those previously but the OP mentioned Scam / Phishing. Cryptojacking didn't seem to fall into that category.

But if it is relevant, for cryptojacking these are a few that we would suggest:
- No Coin (Chrome, Firefox, Opera)
- minerBlock (Chrome, Firefox, Opera)

Also, you may consider using a browser that blocks cryptojacking like Opera and Firefox.

Useful site to check if you have fallen prey to cryptojacking: https://cryptojackingtest.com/

Stay safe.

Hi there, this is for sure a major issue that people need to be aware of.

I would also suggest not to download everything on your smartphone. Especially APK files, there is a very dangerous malware named Gustuff going on and spreading quite fast. You can see tthis article.

I do use 3 smartphones (2 of my old ones):
- my main smartphone that i use for personnal stuff
- the 2nd one for only google auth (2FA)
- the 3rd for airdrops Apps

Another usefull tip, if you are doing airdrops, is not to use your same registered address on trusted exchanges.

I discovered some cool tips from this post since I am disregarding some significant step about quite a while. I’ll start looking into the things you have proposed. From this, my newbie-friend will learn the fundamental law of crypto environment and much more. Nobody is to be trusted in nowadays. Do your very own research and avoid those scammers.

Please update with newest ones.

I think it's ok to not add this anymore, it's on other thread also and once you installed one of the extensions on the OP, this kind of phishing site is blocked.

We can also add these kinds of extension. Since there are some websites now putting some mining scripts to mine using visitors of their websites.

Please be aware, I already a victim of this with before, especially some cryptocurrencies exchange.
I have never been a victim of such phishing sites, but years later (in late of 2017 or early of 2018), there was a phishing site, that was created to steal information of Poloniex users. I saw there are lots of members in my crypto Facebook groups fell into the traps and complained about it. Of course, they lost their money, most of them lost, so it is a key lesson for someone who usually careless with their acts in the Internet space.
For important sites, I suggest to save them (by any mean you can use, speadsheet or bookmark) for later use. It will efficiently help you to stay away from phishing sites.

Facebook is full of trash spammer, especially last bull run 2017, lot of facebook groups that have spammers, not only on their referral links but also they are spreading some phishing links or malware such as bitcoin doubler software. I also remember before on our local facebook groups, that lot of people from our country victim of phishing site of our local exchange where you can convert your bitcoin to national currency directly.

From this, my newbie-friend will learn the fundamental law of crypto environment and much more. Nobody is to be trusted in nowadays. Do your very own research and avoid those scammers.

 
It's the reason why we should carefully analyze the possible outcomes of our actions and decisions because we can't easily guarantee that their real intention was good. People these days tend to trust and believe someone/something without even doing their own research to determine if it's legit and worth it. Some of you may think that it's a bit laborious but it's definitely beneficial because it will help you identify every single information and even experiences of other people about that specific site. Well aside from that, people don't learn from their past experiences, knowing that it can guide them on making the right decision to avoid doing the same mistake. We should realize that scammers will always look for an opportunity to deceive and take advantage of us, they will make you believe on their words and promises that's why we should be fully aware. Newbies usually fall for this trick because some of them doesn't even have an idea about the possible problem they may encounter and they get easily derived by sweet lies. Anyway this post is pretty helpful especially these days because it will be much easier to determine if a site is a phishing site.
