    Exclamation "Growtopia Support" Website Scam

    I was scrolling through a Growtopia Facebook group page and saw this post advertised by a unaffiliated page. It is about a "moderator application form" whereas it is a total carbon copy of the Growtopia Game website. Since the good ol' Wix or Blogspot mod application websites today are – by common knowledge – scams, they have made a different strategy. By entering your GrowID and the email linked to it, it will say that "you've entered the email wrong" and the page will refresh. Once refreshed, the application will now require you to submit your password as well for – like the ol' mod applications – "SeCuRiTy PuRpOsEs."

    Yes. Scammers are finding new ways to steal from people's accounts. This bit is just a slight change from the old mod application we used to see in broadcasts. Now they used the excuse of your email recovery not matching your GrowID, even though you've put the right one.

    Instead of doing nothing, we need to take action against this.
    First, we need to know who is Hosting this website:
    https://www.whoishostingthis.com/#se...-growtopia.com
    We'll then need to file a phishing complaint to the related hosting company, and wait for them to take down the website.

    That's the best thing we can do to prevent and inform other players who'd fall into it.

    They shouldn't just be taken down because of scamming. The website they're running is an exact copy of the official website which is technically copyright infringement and/or stealing, as well as impersonation (something like that) or probably duping, etc.

    Ubisoft should also know about this for it is imitating the official website. Technically stealing, which is one reason to shut the website down.

    Hey Cobwebster,

    It's thanks to heroes like you that Growtopians are safe! I've informed the Ancients about the site, so whoever decided to release this will be... dealt with.

    I'll be closing the thread so their treachery doesn't spread any further!

    Much love,
