Common victims of scam or phishing website over the internet are the beginners in crypto. There's a lot of bad people nowadays are taking advantages to our newbies.
There's a lot of people that first impressions on crypto are scam/fraud or full of scammers, they are wrong, it's on how they use crypto or how they treat it. Even how powerful technology nowadays, we still need to think twice, we need to ask questions if there are any suspected things you saw on the internet.
To avoid these kinds of scam or phishing, we need to learn and explore things. We should know basic securities of surfing into the internet.


Look at this chart by Google, every year, Phishing sites are increasing. (This data is for general Phishing sites, not only for crypto)

A very simple tips on how to protect yourself and your funds:
1. Bookmark your crypto sites.
Use those bookmarks and only those. Don't type in the addresses by hand.
2. Do not trust random URLs.
Do not trust communications, addresses, or URLs sent via private message. Always verify information with a secondary source.
Don’t click any link related to anything crypto, money, banking, or services like Dropbox / Google Drive / Gmail in any email ever.
And if the scammy clickbait was simply too irresistible for you, don’t enter any information on the page.
Never enter your private keys, passwords, or sensitive data on a website that you were sent via message.
3. Turn on 2FA for everything.
Go do it. Right now. Quit your excuses. Choose Google Authenticator over Authy. Don't use your phone number. Then, make sure your phone number is NOT tied to your Google account (look in privacy settings). Turns out, you and your BFF Mr. Hacker can "recover" access to your account via that number, completely destroying the point of 2FA.
PS: MyCrypto is client-side, meaning 2FA won't do anything in our case. 2FA is for ensuring the security of your password on a server.
PSS: Don't forget to cold store your backup words for these 2FA things. It's a huge pain when your phone goes for a swim and your entire life is 2FA'd.
4. Always verify that the site you landed on is legit.
Especially if you are about to enter your private key or download an application. What is legit? A service that people have used for a decent period of time with good results. If the URL has been registered in the last week or the site "just launched," err on the side of caution and avoid it for a while.
5. Lastly: Use your brain.
Think for a moment. Don't assume—ask. Don't blindly follow—question. If something doesn't seem right, if you feel like the luckiest person on Earth, or if you find yourself pondering, "I wonder why I haven't seen this on Reddit yet," there is likely a reason.

These are the list of browser extension/websites that you can use to prevent these kind of danger browsing the internet:

1. Metamask- Browser Extension
This extension is also an ethereum wallet, but this extension can help you to detect a scam/phishing websites by just installing this in to your Google Chrome/Mozilla browser. MetaMask is an extension for accessing Ethereum enabled distributed applications, or "Dapps" in your browser!
Mozilla Add-ons


I tried to use Metamask extension in Google Chrome and visited a Phishing Website and look at what is the result!


2. https://www.etherscamdb.info/scams
You can use this website to report or check every website involved in crypto. An easy-to-use report function helps us identifying all the current scams so we can add them to the database.

Link for reporting suspected scam/phishing website: https://www.etherscamdb.info/report

3. EtherAddressLookup Chrome Extension


Most common uses:
  • Linkify Ethereum Addresses
  • Block you from malicious domains
  • History Checker
  • Twitter Trust Badges

There's also "Bookmark your favourite domains" and "Custom RPC node", but I haven't tried that. For more info and detailed descriptions visit their website. The last three features given above are really helpful, I can say based on experience.

1. Block you from malicious domains : They have a record of blacklisted domains and if you visited one, you'll see this:


2. History Checker : You can check your browser history anytime (last 500 only), this helps in checking if you've visited a site before that has been recently blacklisted. Just go click "More Settings" in your EAL Extension and you'll see all the details there / perform the action.

<image here> check the quoted post

3. Twitter Trust Badges : They are providing 3 types of badges in twitter. I'm seeing this, but I chose to provide the info and images they have provided [source here >Twitter Badges]

     a. Verified/Whitelisted : This means CryptoInfluencers or EtherScamDB have whitelisted your Twitter ID.
              

     b. Blacklisted : This means the account is an imposter or tweeting in way to scam or phish users of their funds.
              


If you want to report a domain via EAL - you'll be redirected to etherscamdb too.
Also thanks to riritsurya1202

4.Cryptonite - Online Identity Protection
Only 30 Days free trial if you don't want to pay  Embarrassed
This browser add-on is the most effective security and compliance solution for protecting your personal identity across every channel including the web, email, cloud, team collaboration and social media.
How the visual indicator works:
✔️ Green Shield = Safe
✔️ Black Shield = Unknown so proceed with caution
✔️ Warning Page = Dangerous


Thanks to whotookmycrypto for this.

5.Malwarebytes Browser Extension
This kind of extension is more likely the same with Metamask/EtherAddressLookup extensions. Creator of this extension has also software for anti-malware. This extension is also good for preventing to access some websites contains malware, link for mozilla add-ons add-ons



This is where Malwarebytes Browser Extension can help you:
Protection from tech support scammers: Blocks browser hijackers, and browser lockers, which are used by scammers to drive victims to call centers that use scare tactics to sell expensive technical support (that you don’t need).
Read more here: https://blog.malwarebytes.com/malwarebytes-news/betas/2018/07/introducing-malwarebytes-browser-extension/

5.Brave Browser - Mobile and Desktop
Here comes one of the best project of crypto, created by the Basic Attention Token(BAT). This is quality browser, not only for desktop but they already have on Android and IOS. This kind of browser is also the best for Adblocker, such as different ads about crypto, which some are lead to a phishing website or scam websites. If you hate ads, then this browser is good for you and bonus you can get rewarded for browsing.☺



♦Browse up to 3x faster
♦Block ads & trackers that follow you around
♦Get rewarded for browsing

Read more here: https://brave.com/features/



How to report suspected phishing website?
You can use the Report Phishing Page of Google
Link: https://safebrowsing.google.com/safebrowsing/report_phish/
Or if you discovered phishing website about crypto, you can use EtherScamDB
Link: https://www.etherscamdb.info/report

6.Email Phishing (Be aware)
As what I experienced before, I get randoms emails from some email address (most are imposter of exchnages).
Be aware of those emails that include a phishing link that includes a link contains phishing site.
Like this:

Image: https://www.hackthissite.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=14605&sid=3141f06f1b909e702c2821d34ec91ebe

And:

Image: https://media.kasperskydaily.com/wp-content/uploads/sites/92/2015/03/06041121/facebook-phishing-example-en.png

As you can see, it contains suspicious email as seen by the image.
(most of that kinds of emails can be found on your spam folder of your email)

Just always check every link given to you by e-mail.


Do you have more information or tips about phishing/scam websites? feel free to post it below.
Let's help our newbies to be free of scammers/hackers in the cryptoworld..

Good stuff! Also wanted to add on some things.

Other links where you can check for scams

1. https://fried.com/crypto-scam-checker/

2. https://www.scamadviser.com/

This is an example of what happens when you run a scam website through the second link.



Also, do not just rely on these sites for assurance on the legitimacy of a website. These websites are updated manually and scammers could create fraudulent sites faster than these sites can update for them. So always be on the alert.

Other methods of checking for scams

Given that the above websites rely on manual updating (eg. fried.com's database was last updated in Jan 2018). Even the Cryptonite extension which is mentioned by the OP requires manual updating.

Ideally, you should also consider adopting a more proactive approach to detecting scams. We have discussed an example of how to do this in another thread here.

You can also use Etheraddresslookup and Cryptonite (if i remembered correctly). They both works like Metamask IMO. But I personally use Metamask and double checking every address that I visited, and ignoring any malicious emails.

Cryptonite works great. Liked it alot. But stopped using them after they began charging for it. Pricing is pretty steep.

Just checked out the Cryptonite and I found this is also good and helpful for identifying phishing websites, or scam websites. Just like Metamask, but they have just free 30 Days trial for non-subscriptions and the fee is quite huge for me. But Cryptonite works great based on some reviews I saw.
Added it on first post, thanks!

While these web services do help in detecting these kinds of scams, the best remedy against these scams is always going to be knowledge.

Yeap, Cryptonite (if free) would be brilliant. They do not just allow you to identify scam websites. It also allows you to find scam accounts on social media. An example is as follows. Notice how the Twitter accounts look similar at first glance. But the green shield is turned off for the second post.

Good Guide bro!


Most of the people here would don't know but Google has its own Safe Browsing Detector named Google Search Console.

I would suggest adding this to the OP as it could be one of the most trusted scam detector out there and it is FREE.

You could get more info about it here

Yes. They can also detect some fake twitter accounts, this is really great for some crypto giveaways on twitter, last 2017 bull run lot of fake twitter accounts roaming around twitter. I already installed in on my chrome's browser with 30 days trial Tongue

Oh, there is also from Google, this detector is for general, not only for crypto, but this is still helpful for everyone. They have also different data for phishing or malware websites all over time. This is a really big help for everyone to be more aware, thanks for sharing this.

I saw that @riritsurya1202 mentioned about EtherAddressLookup, but you didn't list it (Idk if you missed).

EtherAddressLookup Chrome Extension
Most common uses:
  • Linkify Ethereum Addresses
  • Block you from malicious domains
  • History Checker
  • Twitter Trust Badges

There's also "Bookmark your favourite domains" and "Custom RPC node", but I haven't tried that. For more info and detailed descriptions visit their website. The last three features given above are really helpful, I can say based on experience.

1. Block you from malicious domains : They have a record of blacklisted domains and if you visited one, you'll see this:


2. History Checker : You can check your browser history anytime (last 500 only), this helps in checking if you've visited a site before that has been recently blacklisted. Just go click "More Settings" in your EAL Extension and you'll see all the details there / perform the action.

 

3. Twitter Trust Badges : They are providing 3 types of badges in twitter. I'm seeing this, but I chose to provide the info and images they have provided [source here >Twitter Badges]

     a. Verified/Whitelisted : This means CryptoInfluencers or EtherScamDB have whitelisted your Twitter ID.
              

     b. Blacklisted : This means the account is an imposter or tweeting in way to scam or phish users of their funds.
              

     c. Neutral : This means the the Twitter account has not categorized.
              



If you want to report a domain via EAL - you'll be redirected to etherscamdb too.

I agree that main targets in cryptoworld are beginners, inexperience and inadequate knowledge make them very easy targets. Automatic solutions as MetaMask is something that can save many of them, but they need to be able to protect themselves in time, before and not after something bad happens.

Phishing is usually carried out via e-mail, but also in Telegram, Twitter or Facebook, but many users are victims of search engines and pay adds which can be solved just by using adblock for any browser. What any new users should know is that there is no free money, and any offer that seems too good is very likely the scam. Using brain and common sense is still the best defense.

Oh, sorry. I didn't noticed riritsurya1202's post, this EtherAddressLookup could be like free version of Cryptonite, since Cryptonite have subscription fee after 30days trial, this is better alternative for it. Already added it on OP, thank you so much for this.

Exactly! Even these kind of browser extensions/software didn't exist, we should know what scam/phishing websites look like or how it works. These browser extensions are just third parties, we can avoid them if we are careful.

I have a news for you @GreatArkansas

⚠️ BITCOIN-TALK FORUM PHISHING WEBSITE! BE AWARE!! ⚠️
The well-known phising site has come back, and it should be added into your list.
The ".to" Bitcointalk site has been back online for over a month now, after a few months of being off-line. This is how it performed when I gave it a cautious deliberate try (with fake data) a month ago:

Beware!!!!

It seems that the .to phishing version of Bitcointalk is back online today, after being down for a few months. That is likely one of the main sources for hacked accounts around here.
The crazy thing is that it now displays a gambling site popup screen, which is obviously not forum policy. Data is nearly up-to-date with forum, and is barely a day off.

I never ventured to try to log onto the .to site before, but for the sake of it, I tried now with fake data. What it does is capture your login/password, and then immediately redirect you to the proper .org version of the forum, where you are back to the login screen. The impression you get is that you are on the correct site, but suffered a connection glitch that made the site ask you for your credentials twice. The fuckers …

I have a news for you @GreatArkansas

⚠️ BITCOIN-TALK FORUM PHISHING WEBSITE! BE AWARE!! ⚠️
The well-known phising site has come back, and it should be added into your list.
The ".to" Bitcointalk site has been back online for over a month now, after a few months of being off-line. This is how it performed when I gave it a cautious deliberate try (with fake data) a month ago:

Beware!!!!

It seems that the .to phishing version of Bitcointalk is back online today, after being down for a few months. That is likely one of the main sources for hacked accounts around here.
The crazy thing is that it now displays a gambling site popup screen, which is obviously not forum policy. Data is nearly up-to-date with forum, and is barely a day off.

I never ventured to try to log onto the .to site before, but for the sake of it, I tried now with fake data. What it does is capture your login/password, and then immediately redirect you to the proper .org version of the forum, where you are back to the login screen. The impression you get is that you are on the correct site, but suffered a connection glitch that made the site ask you for your credentials twice. The fuckers …

Good news, I think this site will be taken down soon, and this can be considered not adding to the list. I already reported it to EtherscamDB and Report Phishing Page by Google, so they can mark this a phishing website.

If you're going to report any fake or phishing website, just report it to their registrar or hosting site to terminate the whole account.
Search their domain name in whois website and you can see their registrar records. Then report it as fake website, once proved, they will suspend that account, only if the registrar care.

Noted. There's a lot of fake websites nowadays, hoping that registrar will notice this kind of reports and they will take action if they are proven a fake or phishing website.

Just to update about the phishing website of the forum, seems the registrar works great and they just hear me out with my report after contacting cloudflare and redirecting me to contact the registrar which is the AbeloHost.

I just received an email from them that they terminate all the IP address connected with the phishing site and now it's down as host error in cloudflare's error 522.

Glad to hear that  Smiley . I'm thankful because they made an action immediately about that phishing website.

UPDATE:
I added one new browser extension on the list, which are Malwarebytes Browser Extension and a great desktop & mobile browser called Brave.

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.
