How can I help prevent phishing?

Preventing phishing needs to be a community-wide effort. Phishing sites and profiles need to be reported by as many people as possible. You can help by reporting phishing sites and profiles you find to Google and/or the appropriate social media company (i.e. Facebook and Twitter). These reports only take a minute or two of your time, and can greatly help to curb the damage of phishing attempts.

You can also report phishing to our official phishing@stellar.org email.

Report social media phishing by sending details to phish@fb.com for Facebook, and by emailing spoof@twitter.com for Twitter.

It is easy to request the removal of a phishing site.  Use a whois lookup to find the domain registrar.  Domain Name Registrars typically offer an email such as abuse@ or a toll free number to report these kinds of illegal sites.  

Here is just one example of a whois lookup:
