General
  • Check the website URL. Often the URL of a phishing site appears to be correct but contains a misspelling of the name or has a character/symbol before or after it. Look for subtle differences such as the substitution of the number "1" for the letter "l". For example, www.bits1er.com instead of www.bitsler.com.
  • Before clicking on a Google ad, make sure the name in the URL under the heading of the ad is correct.
  • Beware of pop-ups. If you go to a website that immediately displays a pop-up window asking you to enter your login details (and if this behaviour is out of the ordinary), it's likely that it is a phishing site. You may be on a genuine website but the scammers may have used a pop-up to get your personal information.
  • Some ways used to indicate a safe site can't always be trusted and it's important to be aware of them. For example, an icon of a locked padlock to the left of the URL is not necessarily a reliable sign of a genuine website.
  • Be wary of being asked to share details that the site doesn’t normally ask you for.
  • Scan the content of the website. Often, the website content may contain typos and grammatical mistakes.
  • If you're suspicious, enter a fake password. If it works and you appear to be signed in, it is likely you're on a phishing site.
  • Use a browser or extension with anti-phishing detection that is able to help you detect phishing sites.

Bitsler
  • Always double check and make sure you are on https://www.bitsler.com
  • Bitsler does not currently have an app on the app store or for download. Therefore, do not trust any apps claiming to be from Bitsler.
  • It is recommended to not use scripts or bots from entrusted sources. Currently only Dicebot is authorized and allowed to be used on Bitsler.
  • Admins, support and mods will never ask you for money.
  • Secure your account (strong password, 2FA, enable security by email).

How To Report Phishing
  • Send a message to Bitsler support
  • Report your concerns to organizations that will investigate further such as the ones found at phishing.org
