Hello readers, today we want to share a phishing scam that is going around targeting users and stealing account information. This scam uses Google Adwords and a similar url designed to look like Bittrex. It looks very similar to the login page and I am sure has got login information from unsuspecting users. We want our readers to stay as safe as possible, so please share this with others to help spread the word.
Also when logging into any account, remember to look at the URL to ensure that you are logging into the correct website.
If you google Bittrex the top result is an add for a phishing site!
Upvote and let your bittrex amigos know whats up!
edit: if you go there and click login it sends you to https: // bilttrex . com <– close but not the actual site
Looks exactly like the normal login
