I do not think website name and review would be that helpful as usually scam sites are mostly newly build and do not have enough reviews to differentiate if it is a scam or not.

Using metamask add on on chrome would be very helpful to avoid scam sites. This addon does not allow you to continue with sites that are considered malicious or phishing.

I just use windows defender. I do not see it blocking me anywhere. I realize you are listing basics to detect scam site. I feel that all the scammers on internet before crypto has moved to cryptoworld as they are growing like mushrooms. Even if we follow all the things you listed, we can only be protected to some degree. If you are constantly exploring for new opportunity to earn in cryptoworld, you will always be exposed to these scam sites.

Sometimes I often do it by copy paste team photos on Google, there are some who get caught that they take other people's photos. I have done that a long time ago when investing in ico, but now it is rare.

It seems that you did a nice topic here in the forum I am wishing that many of the members here will read this topic you've made so they will know how to choose the legit ico and IEO project so they won't become a victim anymore by the scammer.

i usually used virus total to check the ICO website, also i always check the download link for desktop wallets in there. but it's not 100% accurate. they still make a bit error and mistakes. but it worked perfectly when checking fake/phising website.
it's a good post, so many newbies arround here who don't know how to check scam/phising site.

Who says scam sites cannot be a secured site? Reviews of scam sites can give mixed results as scammers could have written in praise of this sites on crypto sites, social media and reddit. Scamming and phishing are a very organized crime with these scammers going the extra mile in their bid to scam people

I add a little information tips to detect scam website. Check the spelling on the home page, Look at the bottom of the page for a privacy policy or contact information and Visit links from the home page to see if they have spelling or grammar issues because the  scam website wasn't designed by a professional.

Well good info bro. I would have also recommend if you had not included Scamadviser there. I use the site personally as i find it very useful. Not to mention they are a very helpful site. It allows you to know about the sites Domain, Age, Value and ranking according to popularity. Good job keep it up.

This tips are really good indicators wether the website is scam or not but in some circumstances there are websites that seem to be legit (they even pay for positive reviews), but in fact they try to scam users progressively & intelligently

Scamming is becoming sophisticated daily and scammers are leaving no stone unturned to get their next victims. Almost all HYIP sites I know are secured sites and have good ratings. Carefulness is the watch word

Is it free to use the alexa web? I have seen the words "start your free trial". Is the Alexa site 100% able to see scamming sites? Sorry, I just found out that there is an alexa site.

Everyone has their own way, It's better to believe in each other's beliefs in terms of ensuring a scam site or can also be discussed with close friends.

Often times the path, you described above leads to the discovery it is a copy and paste from other sites and interestingly they may contain links or names of proven and known scam sites.

If it is a new site, alexa will reveal almost nothing on the site. But again, if this works for you, then its fine. Any way you know to prevent falling victim to scammers is good

I think it is free .You can use it easily.There would be more ways to check scam sites by fetting info of any site.I suggest you xheck alexa by running some authentic sites on it.Check their info and reviews.

Checking what other people have already experienced using the site can be helping anyone avoid the possibility of being another scam victim. Usually, a scam site will be appearing all over the internet, always look for scam accusations from other people.
