Scam prevention?

It looks like there are alot of scams going on.

is there a way to modify the anchor code to verify that it came from a legit URL?

or some way to educate folks how to be safe?

or request google to stop advertising phishing websites?

is anyone working on it??

Agree. Is anyone on the Anchor team able to do anything about this?

These scams are primarily showing up as adverts in a google search. There are actually four of them right now ahead of the official Anchor site.

Many people are going to lose money on these.

Perhaps worth reaching out to google and providing formal communications on the Anchor Website, Twitter, Discord etc…

Also worth contact each domain provider to report this as criminal activity.

This has been reported to google. The more community members that do the same will also help!
