The Eco Academy’s governance contributor Kibbyz created this guide on safely navigating the Eco-system.

Preface

As the Eco Discord continues to grow, we’re facing the challenge of malicious individuals whose intention is to scam members of the community. There have been reports of scammers impersonating members of the Eco Discord, trying to
to acquire Eco Points and other information.

This guide is an attempt to increase awareness of how you can best protect yourself and keep others safe in the Eco Discord. Keep these tips in mind the next time you interact with others who may be asking for sensitive information.

If you ever come across someone who partakes in malicious activity, be sure to relay that information onto the Eco Team. There is no place in the Eco Community for those who are responsible for scam activity.

1) Check the user’s Discord Name and # Number

Discord allows you to use the same name as another user, but the # number will be different for each account. For example, the two accounts below have the same name, but the # number is different. The first is #1856 and the second is #0809.

Be sure to check that the # number is the same number as the appropriate user in the Eco Discord. That being said, the # number can be changed if you have Discord Nitro which means that it is possible to have a # number that is very similar to another user.

2) Check the user’s Unique Discord ID

People may want to change their Discord name in the future, which can make tracking their name and # number difficult. Therefore, the BEST way to check a Discord account is by using their Unique Discord ID.

The Discord ID will never change (even if you change your name or # number) and is permanently tied to your Discord account.

In order to check a Discord ID, you will need to turn on “Developer Mode” under “Advanced” in the Discord Settings.

3) Check the roles and color of the user

In the Eco Discord, take a look at the “roles” and color of the member that you are talking to. Be sure that you are talking to the real person and not an impersonator.

This tip is not as relevant as the previous tips as server roles are only displayed WITHIN the Eco Discord Server.

Therefore, if someone direct messages you, you will not be able to see the color or server roles in your direct messages.

When dealing in your direct messages, always ensure that the name, # number and Discord ID are correct. This is to ensure that you protect yourself from any possible scams.

4) Disable DM’s from non-friends

Sometimes you may receive direct messages from people offering new crypto links, server invites, or other messages relating to scams about you winning free money.

These messages can be annoying and may also contain malicious links. As an added layer of security, you are able to disable DM’s from non-friends. However, this can also stop other members from directly messaging you without them adding you as a friend. To disable DM’s from no friends, head to the discord settings, under “Privacy & Safety” and disable “Allow direct messages from server members”.

Conclusion

These are just a few tips to keep yourself safe on Discord. Always be careful with giving out sensitive information and double check that you are talking to the correct person.

Be careful with direct messages and do not click any suspicious links or links that seem “too good to be true”.

Most importantly, enjoy the Eco Discord and interacting with the community. We’re all in it together and by working together we can make the mission beyond the moon a successful one!
