I gave the article a read, and I will say it is pretty helpful. The most common thing for me is just the gut feeling I get when talking to people usually I know who is legit and who will scam.

What happens with some of the wallets, casinos and exchanges you use then? :D

You get your trust from your feelings by the reputation those organizations have?

Or you just send them an email to everyone of them to ask proves or for example check them out at bitcointalk pherhaps?

The best way to know if a site is legit or not is to google them. That tells me very quickly about a site. Once though, I found no information on Google about a certain site. Later I found out the company makes new sites every few days to scam people, so if I see no information on Google, I also stay away.

This is not for non beginners alone but for almost all of us. We can fall for this kind of trap, anytime anyday, It is the kind of scam those scammer use, and I really appreciate Kate for bringing this amount of topic on board. The scamming world especially in my side of the world is increasing at an alarming rate as the day goes on, and it is so painful. 

But I will appreciate if you can read this topic well, and digest so as not to fall for it. Most of those scams happen on Telegram, so be careful.

Fraudulent ICOs, Ponzi schemes

These two are the worst scams because it makes adoption of crypto more worst since people think that investing in bitcoin is gonna be the same and they are gonna loose more money.

All you have to remember is, all secure connections will have a "lock icon", but some things may also have a "green address bar".

A green address bar is only displayed when a website uses a certain type of SSL certificate known as an Extended Validation (EV) certificate. This certificate allows websites to prove that they are operated by companies in the real world and are legally registered.

Green blades cannot be falsified, they are proof of identity that cannot be engineered, and if you want to be verified you have to spend not a little to get it and must be extended if the validity period has expired.

If the protocol already uses HTTPS but the lock icon does not appear correctly in the address bar, that means you have to be careful because there are indications of some security issues with the connection. If you find it, you should think it's not safe.

Very good article. A must read one. We must be cautious at all time especially in giving personal information and investing coins we hard earned. Good thing that article has a lot of information which could help us identify some possible scam investment and project. A lot of people still are hesitant to trust and adopt crypto because of the scams happening online. Others have fall from the trap so they gave up crypto.

Thank you for this article, it will be useful for beginners and I will say here about some fraudulent methods such as: Telegram robots, they request a lot of referrals for members and put a high withdrawal limit and at the end of the road you will not get the gain, and we also have mining browsers that drain the computer energy and are very harmful in the personal computer And you will not get the benefit from it
