Here are some tips to help you avoid falling for these types of scams:



Enable two-factor authentication: Enable two-factor authentication on your account to add an extra layer of security. This will require you to enter a code sent to your phone in addition to your login credentials, making it much harder for hackers to gain access to your account. We never ask users to disable their 2FA. If someone asks you to disable your 2FA, that's an immediate sign that they are trying to steal your account/credentials.

Watch out for fake social media profiles: There are often fake social media profiles and communities(mainly on Telegram, Twitter) that pretend to be official accounts or communities for popular websites and brands. Be cautious of any social media accounts or communities that claim to be affiliated with BC Game and do not give out any personal information to them.
Be wary of emails or messages from unknown sources. If you receive an email or message from someone you don't know, be extra cautious before clicking any links or opening any attachments. Hackers often send phishing emails to large groups of people in the hopes that someone will fall for their scam.

Check the sender's email address. Hackers often create fake email addresses that look similar to legitimate ones, but with a slightly different spelling or domain. For example, a legitimate email from "support@bc.game" could be spoofed as "supp0rt@bc.game" or "support@bcg4me.com". Be sure to check the sender's email address carefully before opening any emails or following any links.

Use official sources: Only use the official mirror websites like bc.fun and hash.game, to access your account. Do not use any other mirror websites as they may be fake and used for phishing. All official mirrors[ listed over here](https://bcgame.com/)

Look for red flags. Phishing emails often have a sense of urgency or use threatening language to try and get you to take action. For example, they may claim that your account will be suspended if you don't click a link to update your information. They may also contain misspellings, poor grammar, or use official-sounding language to try and appear legitimate.

Use a reputable antivirus software. Antivirus software can help protect your computer from phishing attacks by scanning emails and websites for malicious content. Make sure to keep your antivirus software up to date to ensure the best possible protection.

Be cautious when using public Wi-Fi. Public Wi-Fi networks are often unsecured, which makes them vulnerable to hackers. If you must use a public Wi-Fi network, avoid accessing sensitive information, such as your bank account or login credentials.

As a reminder, it is important to always protect your personal and account information online. This includes being aware of potential phishing scams and taking steps to secure your accounts and devices.
