Leading cryptoexchange Bitfinex reported on the fake scam clone-website, that can be used by hackers to collect confidential data. 

Scammers used popular scheme - they made a clone website and pushed it on the top via Google Ads. 

As real Bitfinex states, Google advertising link that appeared on the too leads to fake  Bitfinex site, since it begins with www. (the original exchange site begins with https: //), but also leads to the domain Bitfiniex dot com.

The same scamming method was used by criminals to steal Etherdata users info a while ago.

The good thing is that at the moment of press, scamming website is unavailable. Also, please look at the lower right corner of the screenshot to that the fake website is "copyrighted" by the  bitfiniex dot com.

Also, Google search line looks proper too.

Additionally, we haven't found any reports in official twitter that someone used the wrong website.
