Information

By applying proprietary logic to the tagged accounts, we automatically extend and generate an advisory list, warning about potential danger of interacting with these accounts

Each account has a status from 1 to 3, where 3 is highest probability of fraudulent activity:

Status 3

The account has been through a manual vetting process and:

  • The account has positively been identified as scam from social media or website, or
  • The account features in victim report with transaction detail, AND
  • The account activity and connected accounts, matches the nature of the scam being reported.

Status 2 and 1

  • Based on activity patterns and connectivity to accounts with the status 3.

There is always a risk of wrongful tagging, and we are very serious about eliminating false positives. In the unlikely event that this happens, please contact us or send a direct message on Twitter, @xrplorer, to resolve.

We do not guarantee that any published lists or addresses are 100% correct - there is always a possibility for false positives – and we do not guarantee that any published lists is 100% complete.

You can look up addresses on the front page to learn their status, otherwise the advisory list and lookup is accessible through an API, find more information here.
