The Bitcoin Foundation has issued an official warning towards scam sites, who are trying to steal users Bitcoins and perhaps also other information. The sites have copied the Bitcoin Foundation website and changed only some of the text, to pose as the serious foundation to scam the Bitcoins out of people.
“The Bitcoin Foundation’s website is being cloned and spoofed at web addresses and domains that have absolutely nothing to do with the Bitcoin Foundation. The offending websites we know about at this time include bitcompensation.com and bitsecuretransfer.com. Neither of these domains have anything to do with the Bitcoin Foundation.” A statement from the Bitcoin foundation stated.
Below is an example of a site who copied the look of the Bitcoin foundation to try and scam Bitcoins out of people, asking for them to enter their Bitcoin address to receive a random amount of Bitcoins.
The Bitcoin foundation urges everyone who notice sites being copied in order to scam people to contact them as fast as possible, so they can issue warnings to the community about it. You can contact them by sending an email to email@example.com and put “Scam Site” in the subject line.
