The account - - ElectrumWallet Support - created yesterday and claimed to be an official account used to support Electrum wallet's community.
If you are curious, you have to see the post history via the archive link below. Today, I learned one more thing, nuked accounts can not be linked via url links.  Smiley

According to modlog, the account was nuked yesterday.

Both moderator, DT members (two as I saw in the trust page), and maybe normal users acted fastly to report that account to forum moderators. Their decent fastly efforts help lots of users in the community be safe from that scammer.

Unfortunately, such scammers will pop up every single day. If you use the search function of the forum, with the keyword: Electrum, you will get 2-paged results, that is significant in my opinion. I don't say all or most of those accounts with Electrum in usernames are scammers and I have not yet checked.

The important reminder I want to say to you is: Be careful with any accounts that includes the word Electrum in their usernames and other key words if you have intention to ask for support from other coins or services.
Especially if whenever you ask for help, opinion from community, one newbie account with 'potential' trapped key words in their usernames appear and claim that they come from core team members, want to give their hands and quick supports, Stay Away from them!

You can spend your more time to check official websites to verify those accounts (see the below quote) but in my opinion you don't have to do this. Most of such cases are scammers.
For questions if you need, please search for available answers in those channels: https://electrum.org/#community
From the official website of Electrum, you can easily see there is no contact emails, they only guide that if users have questions, ask for help from (Community > Support) :
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=98.0
https://www.reddit.com/r/Electrum/
From that, be very careful with the above account that claims to be Electrum Support (a newbie account). The age of that account is serious thing because how long Electrum wallet has been here? Years, but their support account just created recently (about 2 hours ago) and has still been a Newbie.  Smiley

Now, let's look at the archived posts of that scammer to learn something and to be safe later.
https://archive.is/OKnsX (by @o_e_l_e_o)

Please report those scammers, their posts to forum moderators.

How to report?
I want to recommend you to make a short report content (in fact it has to be short due to character limits) in order to help moderators who received your reports fastly catch what you report. So please read my guides too:
Those guides are not for reports, but you can retrieve some points for your report contents from general posting techniques.

Today, I learned one more thing, nuked accounts can not be linked via url links.  Smiley
I have never seen that before.

This type of scams are very common and are happening regularly on social media, what puzzles me is the fact that people yet fall for it. It’s really nice to see that members here were active and took care of the problem before it could cause damage, also I liked the advice that people should avoid interacting with keyword based accounts here. Hopefully newbies and other members will learn valuable lessons from this post, and save themselves from falling for such scams.

Unfortunately we cannot blame the people who fall for this schemes since some of them has not been informed on the modus of some scammers around and good thing there's a warning post like this so that it  will be a reference for the newbie users once they read this on how these scam acts works, And for sure those who victimized by them learned a lesson and they should step up to tell there bad experiences so that they will save the upcoming newbies to fall on this scheme.

You made a little typo in your important reminder, please change the world to word.  Grin

Yes, the scammer a making small adjustments to the actual Url and they replace it with a phishing Url.  Angry  Your best bet is to write the official Url

down on a sticky note and to put it close to your computer. When you want to visit the site, just type the original Url and you will be sure that you

would be directed to the correct site.

This will take you 5 seconds longer than simply clicking on a random Url, but it will save you a lot of money and problems later.

Now, let's look at the archived posts of that scammer to learn something and to be safe later.

Good thing that the mods are swift enough to nuke such names and impostors very easily, else newbies might get distracted and victimized by the said account. Just a public disclaimer, Electrum doesn't have any wallet support or any representative here in this forum nor do they plan in deploying such any time soon. Also, all info that one needs to know about the wallet is already posted on their site, therefore all people that downloaded  their wallet only need to read what's in it and they're done.

The account - - ElectrumWallet Support - created yesterday and claimed to be an official account used to support Electrum wallet's community.
.
There are lots of threads and posts here in the forum about scams, phishing and fake websites but there are still people who continiously being fooled and falls for these kind of traps. Despite all the tips about vigilance and being cautious, they are still at it and this is not a good sign. These events just shows that scammers and cyber criminals roaming around the crypto space are getting smarter and sharper whem fooling people making it very hard to get rid of them.

I remember reporting few of his posts and it didn't take long before his account got nuked. I also left him a negative trust. It is a throwaway account and am sute he will come back with a new one.

These events just shows that scammers and cyber criminals roaming around the crypto space are getting smarter and sharper whem fooling people making it very hard to get rid of them.
I am not sure whether scammers are getting smarter or other usrers are becoming more careless!

I am not sure whether scammers are getting smarter or other usrers are becoming more careless!

since  the scamming methods they are using are mainly the same as it has always been i don't think we can say they are getting smarter. they are just copying the same thing that has been successful before and repeating it.
i think it is more about the fact that there are more newer members around and most people being greedy these days (not applicable to this case but in other ways of scamming) specially those who have lost money trying to invest.

No, they are not smart. Theymos said "Scammers are always stupid", that I totally agree with. Unfortunately, there are people who are over-greedy and easily fall to traps of stupid scammers. I don't say victims of scammers are stupid, they are likely smart but just over-greedy.
