Scam Links - Stay vigilant

Anyone seen this?


There’s a lot of similar characters that can be used to create fake links. This has been used for about 20 years now and most browsers should detect this sort of fake link, however you’d definitely always be best not to click on random links.


One more reason to use a good password manager; it will not fill in a password if the URL does not match the correct one (of course, this assumes you saved the correct URL from the genuine website when creating the password entry).


There’s a TheoJoe video on this, I can’t find it though from a quick search on youtube

but, I did find an article on it: Fake URLs with Cyrillic letters | Computeractive Magazine (


Seen a few new ones lately. They’re evolving and getting very clever at disguising themselves beyond the use of symbols and Cyrillic letters.
