How to Identify fake exchange or wallet sites
Here are some red flags that Wallacy suggests you to spot a fraudulent website:
- Double-check the URL: Phishing sites usually mimic the URLs of legitimate sites, but with minor differences, such as misspellings or other domain extensions. Be careful with little details!
Eg: Our official website: https://wallacy.io/
*Fake website: [<https://walacy.io/>](<https://wallacy.net/>)*
2. Check for SSL certificates: Trustworthy sites have SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificates, which encrypt data between the user and the site. Check if the site URL begins with “https” instead of “http” or look for the padlock icon next to the URL.
3. Avoid exchanges with unbelievably high returns: It’s most certainly a scam if an exchange guarantees a return that seems too good to be true, particularly those that guarantee outstanding returns within the first few days or weeks after registration.
4. Use reputable sources: Stick to well-known and reputable sources for crypto exchanges and wallets. DYOR in advance and ensure that the site you are using is trustworthy and has a good reputation in the community.
