Potential Discord Scam - BE AWARE!

Recommended Posts

Users of OSBot,

It has come to our attention that there is a Discord scam going around you all should be aware of.


Discord recently implemented a QR Code login system that can be quite useful, but poses a high security risk.


Please be aware, Discord gifts, Nitro Subscriptions, or anything FREE will NEVER be redeemable through the QR Code scanner in the Discord Mobile app. If anyone sends you a PM on Discord with a QR Code telling you to scam it through the Discord Mobile App, DO NOT SCAN IT. Once you scan it, you are allowing someone to gain full access to your Discord account and they may do as they please with it, such as posing as you and potentially scamming other users.

(If you allow someone to gain access to your Discord account that is either advertised on the forums or is verified by other users as being your account, any scams that occur within the OSBot community to users in the OSBot community you will be fully responsible for)

 

If you receive a PM from ANYONE in the OSBot Discord attempting to scam you this way, please let us know so we can take appropriate actions.

 


tl;dr 
If you receive a Discord PM claiming to be giving you a free prize or free Nitro by having you scan a QR Code, do not scan it! You are giving scammers access to your Discord account.
