Cardano Foundation has urged its lovers especially users of the Yorio wallet to be warry of scammers’ actions in the crypto ecosystem.
The not-for-profit foundation urged users of the wallet to be careful, as scammers out there are already faking Yoroi wallet website.
The foundation behind the science-based cryptographic project Cardano urged users not to fall into the hand of hackers as the scammers already have ground plans to cart away with people’s funds once they click on the fake website.
Once a user clicks on the fake website, the scammers will run a balance check and a wallet restore on their website and afterward cart away the user’s fund.
However, a user on Twitter, named cryptobank, advised the foundation to file a takedown notice to DMCA.
CryptoBank added that a research on WHOIS would also be necessary so that the information of the domains host can be obtained and Cardano Foundation can request a takedown.
I would recommend filing a DMCA take down notice https://t.co/N7pUkiSOSm. Also do a whois search on the url in case its not private. While you're there, contact the domains host and request it be taken down.

In response, Cardano Community Developer, Andy Hendrikx, said the host has been contacted for a takedown.
We did that but the hoster isn't that fast unfortunately.
