There’s been a rise in lookalike domain registrations targeting SushiSwap. Scammers are registering similar looking domains and cloning SushiSwap’s main site and platform to trick victims into entering wallet secrets. Scammers also impersonate fake support on Twitter, Discord, and other social media platforms to trick users onto these sites. We’ve also seen Google ads begin to run targeting SushiSwap with links to malicious sites.
DomainGuard offers a service which would provide SushiSwap with Proactive Phishing and Fraud Protection. Banks and online retailers have been using domain monitoring services such as DomainGuard for years. With the rise in crypto, attackers have also increased their attacks and phishing efforts on crypto exchanges, NFT marketplaces, basically anything that allows for a wallet connection.
The motivation for our pitch is that SushiSwap is actively being targeted, in the present tense. We’re not hear to talk about a product that may help in theory, we’re here to talk about a problem that’s actively affecting SushiSwap, and we’re here to provide a solution. These attacks are happening, now - and we’ve come here after we’ve identified them in our platform and want to help SushiSwap better protect their domain and brand from phishing and fraud. See our evidence below of activity we’ve found in the past week targeting SushiSwap.
We will create a multi-page PDF proposal with the specifications and legal lingo should SushiSwap want to consider our services.
DomainGuard begins to monitor for phishing and fraudulent activity related to the SushiSwap domain and brand. DomainGuard would detect, and takedown malicious sites, preventing them from ever reaching your userbase. The SushiSwap brand and it’s reputation would increase in credibility. Limit effectiveness of Phishing against your users and employees. Gain a high integrity security vendor as a trusted partner to help in future security discussions.
Can’t really think for a reason against using our service. Scammers would continue to leverage the SushiSwap site and similar domains in crypto phishing attacks against your users. Users would have a bad taste in their mouth if they were scammed on a site that looked identical to yours. Support and fraud cases would increase.
The options on the poll below should simply be Yes or No. There are legitimate reasons to vote no, and our goal is not to pressure anyone into voting yes. The poll cannot be reworded 5 minutes after creation and we do not want to restart the poll and lose results of those who already voted. Voting no does not mean that you want users to attack the Sushi domain and\or brand.
- Yes - let’s take these scammers down.
- No - we’ll let scammers register these sites to attack our users and brand.
