Important Alert: Discord Phishing Operation "Big Phish"

Summary
  • "Big Phish" is a new discord phishing operation targeting our server, where users pretend to be bots or use the name "announcement" to post fake announcements filled with reaction emojis and scam links.
  • Do not click on any suspicious links and report such profiles to the designated channel. Tightening server security measures is underway.

Good morning @everyone, It looks like our sever is being targeted by a new discord phishing operation. Ill call it "Big Phish" for now.

What does this look like?

  • The Big Phish looks like users are masquerading as either bots on the server or changing their name to "announcement" They then go into your channels and post what looks like an announcement and fill it with reaction emojis to make it look legit. They link to a scam site designed to steal your credentials.

What can I do to protect myself?

  • I think this should go without saying but DO NOT click on any link that looks suspicious and to good to be true. If we had something to announce, its going to happen in this channel. Report this profiles to us in (channel) and ill ban asap.

What can we do to protect you better?

  • I am going to go in our server settings and see if I can tighten down our security even more. Ill work with the founders to figure out the best course of action here.

What if I clicked it?

  • Here is the worst part of it all. Due to the nature of web3, once someone has access to your credentials, you can pretty much kiss your wallet goodbye. I would suggest creating a new wallet and transferring anything you have over to the new one before the hackers take everything. You can use https://DIMOBUDDY.com to send your Device ID and Vehicle ID to your new wallet. Good news here is that this will transfer over your vehicles streak so no starting over :).

As always, we are here for you, and if you need additional assistance, please reach out to [email protected].

Thanks everyone
