VERY IMPORTANT BEWARE OF BINANCE.AUCTION SNIPING/FAKE SITE- I’m going to try and type this as fast as I can and relate what happened to me last night so the rest of you can protect yourself.

At about 11:44 PM last night (1/8/2018) I tried logging into binance.com to check my account. I was a bit distracted as I was looking as crypto tracker on my phone and logging in on my PC at the same time. After I entered my username and password, I got to the 2FA screen (no slide the shape into the cutout game came up, but I did not realize this) and entered my code. A message came up saying that the code had expired and to re-enter, which I did. the second time it failed I realized something was wrong. I then opened up a new tab, made sure I typed in correctly binance.com, logged in successfully and then realized that I had not been given the shape into the cutout game when I tried to login the first time. I knew something was up and went back to my previous binance login tab and checked the website address. It had what appeared to be a verified SSL heading, but the site said binance.auction. I checked the certificate and it said that was valid for *.binance.auction. This confused me for a sec, but I then realized I had been sniped. I quickly changed my password twice and checked to make sure there were no outgoing withdrawals. My accounts and wallets all seemed intact. I then checked my email and saw that there was a new login from an IP address other than the one I was using and from abrowser (firefox) I hadn’t used in quite a while, so I clicked the “disable my account” link. I then sent an email to binance support briefly telling them what happened.

ALSO POLONIEX account users should beware as the IP Address associated with the binance.auction site (85.93.20.58) was resolving to Poloniex this morning

Here are some images showing what I am talking about as well as some investigating I did on the

Unathorized IP email: Imgur Fake SSL location: Imgur binance.auction screengrab 10 AM EST: Imgur binance.auction IP Poloniex resolving this morning: Imgur Chrome Tile inspection of binance.auction: Imgur binance.auction hypestat lookup: Imgur ISP Info? Imgur binance.auction SSL Lookup 1: Imgur binance.auction Comodo lookup: Imgur Geolocation of binance.auction server lookup: Imgur Unauthorized IP Address from email-probably spoofed: Imgur

At this point this whole thing seems to be a pretty sophisticated scam and I’m not confident that my wallets will be intact when I finally get my account unlocked from Binance as it really comes down to how fast I was able to act and how quickly me disabling my account went into effect and, any of it mattered if the culprit was still logged in. Even though it was a significant sum I may have lost, I care more about letting you guys know, detailing what happened to me as quick as I could, and providing some info so we can catch this bastard.

It maybe the Wild Wild West in cryptotown these days gang, but lets Posse up and get this muther.
