WARNING: SCAM ALERT

What you are seeing above is the raw data without images or hidden links of a current scam that is being conducted on the HIVE Network. So far I have tracked two different accounts in which is using this same scam (@drhoofman & @mohandes) but there could be others. Below is the message shown as it appears when the scam is first initiated. If you see the below message in anyones topic DO NOT CLICK ANY OF THE LINKS IT DISPLAYS / DO NOT GIVE YOUR KEYS OUT.

I have created a short video below in which shows where the links lead to if clicked. The end goal of this scam is to trick the unsuspecting user to put their MASTER PASSWORD in a clone site of hivesigner. If you do so your account will be compromised as the scammer will have then got access to your HIVE Account (Likely to steal everything in it). The clone site URL looks like this-->

justnetwork.tech/hive/
while the real hivesigner webpage uses hivesigner.com. Always check the URL of any sites you plan on putting your Hive Network keys in.

Disclaimer: I used as many tribe tags as I could so the warning message would reach as many as possible. Resteem or create your own warning post to help spread the word.

Seen the same thing posted on other peoples posts and clicked on it, but quickly reset my password and keys to be on the safe side.

Thiese people will try anything to catch unsuspecting newbies, best to be safe and when in doubt secure your account, upvoted and reblogged

Do you want to win SOME BEER together with your friends and draw the BEERKING.

I've seen this alot and my only reaction is to downvote and go my way.

It's very unbearable to see people trying to scam others this way. It's just not reasonable.

Thanks for bringing this to light. We've got to be careful

Thanks for helping to spread the word.

I clicked on the link (Not recommended) to make the video (no warning from my anti-virus). Looks like the scammers end goal is to trick unsuspecting users to put their Master Key into the scam signer site.

I'm aware of the pay token. I purchased a little and earned a little more from content creating that I plan on staking on the first of next month.
