Scam prevention

Modus Operandi:
As soon as one writes in public social media channels like Telegram, Reddit, Facebook, Discord, Instagram, etc., and asks for help, scammers are waiting to trick and steal the EOS token holder's tokens.

Beware because mostly, these are scammers! Scammers will direct message you (direct chat) and pretend to be moderators, administrators, support agents (help desk) or even EOS Support itself. The profile sometimes looks the same as the profile of administrators or moderators.


Telegram:

Discord:

The scammers impersonating the moderators and admins on Discord use as well the same image and the same name but have a diff #nnnn associated with the actual name/account

Example

Instead of Dario | EOSsupport.io#9204

the scammer has another number than 9204.

The EOS moderators, administrators, or EOS Support agents will never directly message you or ask you for your private keys! If you get a direct message, please block this user immediately and report them as scammers!

Most impersonated administrators:

Some of the most impersonated administrators are Rohan and Ali from EOSauthority.com, Aaron Cox in the EOS Main channel, and many more. None of these users will write you a direct message. If you see any of these users sending you a direct message first, please block them and report.

Best Practices:

Only write on official public channels.

Never answer a direct message or a chat.

How to be 100% safe:

1) Visit EOSsupport.io (Make sure the browser URL displays the domain eossupport.io and not another domain).

2) Open the direct chat.

3) Start a conversation (open a ticket) and ask for help here.
