Pay attention to this

Featured Comment

There have been attempts by a malicious website to phish (get without your consent) the usernames and passwords of Stake forum users.

They even built a copy of the Stake forum so that if you are not careful you may think you are inside the real one, but you are not.

So please pay attention to this as its VERY IMPORTANT.

 

Every time that you are in the login page of Stake forum, where you enter your username and password,

YOU MUST VERIFY BY LOOKING AT THE ADDRESS BAR OF YOUR BROWSER THAT YOU ARE IN THE REAL STAKE FORUM.

Thank you!!!!

this is common sense. Sad to see that people are falling for this.

Some general tips for the web:

Always verify the URL

Never login anywhere that you dont trust.

If you cant be sure that its the real stake forum, go to stake.com and click forum. 

Also, I think if you come across the a fake stake forum, you should report it to the hosting provider or the domain registrar. DM me if you want to know how :)
Stay safe everyone!

Thanks Maverick, this is valuable info, and yes, as ThomasTV2 just said it is a "common sense" but sometimes, in the rush of the day, we just forgot to check it.  I do never change laptop when gambling and when I am here in Forum, always same equipment, same IP....same table and chair.... better keep that way.  Good luck and thanks again.

The most amazing thing is that the link was posted here. They posted one in my post, but a moderator deleted it quickly.
The other was still on someone's post out there for a while.

One of my posts recently was also one of the threads where @sarah.DF who is already banned after I reported it to Support Team. What happened was Sarah said that someone copied the original poem I wrote for Stake. Then he put the link below her comment and whats amazing was the url was forum.stake.com. It was only when I hover the cursor to the link that it showed the real url you are gonna be redirected if you click it. LoL and it was different. Although honestly I was stupid to click it still haha and I ended up seeing "play4win" copied my poem but I know in just a matter of seconds I was being tricked. So I changed my password immediately because after clicking the link, my Telegram account is being accessed, my Stake account was being targeted as well for sme reasons. Honestly, I have been careless Lol but good thing I am alert so no security risk at all. Be careful Stakers! Keep winning! Cheers! 😁

I was a victim of this. I hate how stupid I am. :) The post I click was like this.

Look someone just copy you forum post. *link here* the link looks exactly like skakes' forum.

I clicked the link ans was redirected to a page that has my copied forum post but I cannot report it. A week later, my account was banned and the reason was because I am posting malicious link which I didn't do.  I usually click the link of the forum at the bottom of the casino's page. So I was really surprised that my account was compromised. So I realized that maybe it was the link i clicked.

guys be careful.

Cheers to the moderators!

To everyone: use a password manager with strong passwords (different one on every site). If the password manager does not give you the option to login with the credentials in the manager, there's something strange with the site...

I have an automatic password and the tab is always open in the browser - I advise everyone to do so and will not fall into phishing sites, just bookmark all your sites - it's just.

The problem was that part of the attack was here inside Stake forum, with links that redirected you to the fake site, so it was very easy to fall in the trap.

They were erased very quickly but some ppl had troubles anyway.

So it doesnt matter if you have forum bookmarked , you can still be taken to the fake website in a moment of distraction.

Again, its very important that everytime you enter the username and password, just verify the website address.

It's common sense to not just click any links that someone sends you, and check where the page ur clicking on redirects you by putting ur cursor on it. Most of the time it should say

Good advice - it would be easy to forget and click a link from within forum or pm's. 

I fell for something similar recently with an email I received regarding an account I have.  Usually I'm pretty savvy to phishing and can see it a mile away, but I was in a hurry, and didn't take the time to check.

Clickable links are easy, and sometimes....we are lazy enough to use them. :)

This is real as I saw one myself but on a different website where I buy crypto’s. The point is, as much as this is real, it still takes a little bit of effort for you to realize you mistake and avoids visiting such sites. I know many may fall victim to this. But I doubt if you don’t want to you will.
