Hello. This is my first post and English is not my first language, so please forgive my poor wording.

I received a message just a moment ago. I read this but this message made me confused.

Is this message just a scam? Or really I'm suspected? What is the meaning of this message?

I want to think this is one of a kind of something meaningless...

I'm not well about English so someone please help me. Thank you for reading. (Fortunately I haven't clicked this link yet)

UPD : Thank you for answers! I'm going to keep a lookout.

Trying my best to explain here.

NEAR has started crowdforces. I have no idea about what this is or what it is meant to do. But Crowdforces is reserved only for>=blues ( experts,candidates,master and so on).

When you go to register on Crowdforces,it gives a username and link and some other information. You are supposed to send the message to a user crowdforces on codeforces. After 5 to 10 minutes you can login to your account where you will see that you have some NEAR coins. (iirc it had value of 10 us dollars).

Now what these bots are trying to do is that they will get all the information and then have you send the message to the account and then login on your behalf. Once they are logged in , they can do whatever they want with the coins that should rightfully belong to you.

So my humble request don't send any message to crowdforces unless you have got the other information yourself.

I love how they abuse the warning as if it was a part of the message itself. Maybe it would be better if, instead of simply showing a warning above the text, Codeforces hid the message under a spoiler, called e.g. 'I understand the danger and will take the message with a grain of salt, read anyway'

This is a scam, just ignore it. I must say that that first paragraph is pretty clever tho

First paragraph though... Scammers are so clever this days. Well, clever scammers on a platform for clever people. I bet they'd like to thank MikeMirzayanov for such a good platform (and even for Polygon maybe?)
