The image above is of a scam website, claimbtcgpu.org, which has been set up to steal Bitcoin from unsuspecting people who are new to the cryptocurrency space or unaware of the security protocols involved.
While the site claims to assist you in claiming your Bitcoin Gold, it has no association with the real Bitcoin Gold, whose legitimate and official website can be found at btcgpu.org. You can read my article about Bitcoin Gold here.
The scam site looks professional, provides detailed information, has a Bitcoin Gold logo and uses a domain name that is the same as the official site, except for having the word 'claim' at the front. What gives it away as a scam is that it asks you to enter your Bitcoin Private Key or Bitcoin Seed, as can be seen in the image below.
Never share your Bitcoin Private Key or Bitcoin Seed with anyone, because having either of these enables someone to access and steal your Bitcoin. Any website that asks you to provide them is a phishing site that is attempting to scam you. The same goes for emails, texts or phone calls. It doesn't matter what they say, or what excuse or reason they give. The only reason for wanting it is to steal from you. Never, ever do it.
