There is a phishing attack on the blockchain, where 0.001 Steem is being sent to wallets with a memo that begins: "Exclusive offer get 20 STEEM..." and ends with a link to a non-Steem site.


It is coming from an account that has been stolen from the owner.

Esa mensaje es de una cuenta que hay sido robada.


Thanks for the heads up Trin.

You're welcome, @tryskele. Thanks for stopping by.

There has been a second account now 😥

Damn. I hope it can be stopped before they do more damage.

Me too. A normal course would be to change your password. It's what is recommended when something like this happens.

One of the accounts didn't click on the link in their wallet. It was traced back to a comment left on one of the posts. I wish I knew more about the particulars.

You're welcome. This is more for the newbies. We veterans are already used to this. Right?

Thanks for the support. Here's a little bit of !BEER for you.

Suddenly I'm feeling old 😉

I know the feeling! 😂

Thanks for the warning.

You're welcome. Stay safe out there.

Thanks for the warning. I never click on untrustworthy unsolicited links but some people always do.

It seems like there are fewer of these scams than there once were here, though. I guess this site is making progress.

Freebies are always dangerous.

Yes, there are... 😪

Important warning - and a great time to remind people how important it is to keep their keys safe. Using Keychain can help a lot too.

Yeah, Keychain makes things a little easier. Thanks for your comment.

Not good 😕😕😠

Thanks for the warning. In addition to not clicking the link, it must be done. Delete it or just ignore it.

You're welcome. These phishing attacks cause a lot of trouble. They spread as fast as the plague.
