Thank you. That is very helpful.
I'm always concerned that so many applications even ask for master passwords even though they clearly don't need it.
Maybe it could be encuraged to not ask for it in general.
So you would think twice when you are asked.

Thanks for helping to keep us all safe.

You are welcome. I am happy to help and inform the user on how to protect themselves.

The scheme varies a bit... but not much, their technique is always the same. Convince the user to go to some other site - most times a clone of SteemIt.com - and then ask users to login with their Steem Account.

It's a pity that many users keep falling for this trap. Well, but at least, now the scammers will have a little more trouble replicating all the messages, since they will exhaust their RC very fast.

This is why we must continue our education effort and continue to inform users again and again.

That's one of the positive aspects of the HF20

I always stick to the old adage 'if its to good to be true then it probably is'

also anyone with a rep below 25 automatically arouses my suspicion - especially when they are giving something away!

Resteemed!
Hope that no dedicated users will be victims of such scam
