Scam Alert: Airdrop Campaign

Recently we noticed a scam campaign to lure user to handover Ethereum private key wallet by clicking on the links purportedly from OmiseGo airdrop. This is nothing new as this method has been actively used during ICO craze before, by plastering scam link into slack channel to get into victim, but now they are shifting into twitter and email to reach new victim.
