Bookmark your crypto sites - Use those bookmarks and only those
Only send funds to trusted addresses - Double-check what address you're
sending ETH to. Lookup the address at etherscan.io and check if there are bad reviews
Never trust any discord/slack/telegram/reddit message - Don't ever fall for messages that
say you can get free ETH or that a hack has occured
How can I join the fight?
Report scams to use here
Report scams to Google:
Send abuse reports to the registrar, hosting and SSL provider of the scam domains
Install the <a href="https://harrydenley.com/ethaddresslookup-chrome-extension-release/">EtherAddressLookup</a>
extension on your browser
Can I use the data from this project?
Yes, you can either download the raw blacklist and whitelist files or take a look at our API
Are the reports open source? Where do they go?
All reports end up in a private Slack to protect people's privacy. The reports can be read by
all team members of MyCrypto and they can decide whether the report makes it to the blacklist
Why was this database created
The database was created in July 2017 as EtherScamDB(.info), when trying to find a solution
to the ethereum scams. In 2019, we migrated to CryptoScamDB(.org) in order to indicate our
support of the wider cryptocurrency ecosystem. While grouping all the scams won't make
them go away, it will make both identifying them and taking them down easier
