The RCH airdrop bot appears to have sprung a scam message. It points to a website (https://claimpolkadot.com/) that wants users to send in DOT and receive 3x DOT back. This is a classic scam tactic. DO NOT fall for it. Do NOT send DOT to this address. You will lose it all. How can you know it’s a scam? I repeat – https://claimpolkadot.com/ is a scam site.
Evidence of scam:
- It asks for crypto to get more crypto – you should never have to do this for gifts/airdrops. If they wanted proof you held DOT, simply providing your address would be enough. With just a wallet address I can tell you how much of every coin/token you hold in that wallet. I can’t access it, but because the main blockchains are transparent.
- It cross links to the trust worthy location – this domain has links for the Polkadot whitepaper and such, and all those links point away from the domain “claimpolkadot.com” and toward the actual, real Polkadot domain. Scams do this to hope no one will notice the domain change and think the scam site is reliable. It also helps them not need to fake as much content. (scammers can be lazy like the rest of us after all).
- It magically has one redemption every minute that returns 3x DOT in the same minute – If you know how crypto transactions are approved, the transaction log at the bottom is extremely unrealistic. The likelihood of having exactly one transaction every minute and returning that transactions within the same minute is a truly astounding feat statistically speak. Real transactions bunch together in the same minute and have periods of time with no transactions.
- Txn hash’s aren’t provided in full – The whole point of the blockchain is transparency. A true crypto site would share full transaction hashes and let you see on the blockchain explorer the full transaction info.
