馃毃WARNING馃毃 - outburst of scam pools by same scammer who created MELD4

UPDATE: since scammer noticed he was detected, most of the relays started reshuffling the DNS records chaging the relay IPs, see bottom of this post, some of the evidence in this post is no longer visible. This issue is also being tracked here: https://forum.cardano.org/t/massive-scam-pool-group-uncovered/85194 Starting with this epoch huge amount of undetected fake pools was created - all pools share same relay IPs as MELD4, hosted by cloud service Contabo in Dusseldorf. Most of these relays have weird unrelated domains like "relayeverstake.cloud" or "relaystakepoolservice.site" always privately registered to someone in Hanoi / Vietnam. Here is list of all pools I found so far, could be more of them - all of them are fake pools, do not stake with them and if you are a pool operator, do not peer with them, IPs are: * 194.163.135.82 * 194.163.177.187 * 194.163.152.66 List of fake pools: * HOSKY https://adapools.org/pool/080aa40bcc98c8de57b9a2fadbbacef2a0c684b6de52047de11b55ed * MELD https://adapools.org/pool/ae87267f69a2a3c7c2d11dac634cfcf4607cb74fd99de0d527e7344a * NAMI https://adapools.org/pool/c4526ea0f14dc331a75e5678f12a7e50edd81d4f83e904ca63630d33 * ISPO2 https://adapools.org/pool/923009b02b076cb910553c92ed6c8e5d8facc54e7ae3e177615d78b6 * ITC3 https://adapools.org/pool/b00b6041e5a94a83c59f9d9dc812b490dc764d352640f5c5f27619c0 * WMT https://adapools.org/pool/69b5546d1007a991393c6777a76d0d83e45e9dca52e52175f8d19072 * MELD4 https://adapools.org/pool/c92b4b0b58718c240b4d490e580d8ec2456db239e9d1191ac6dac651 * EVE6 https://adapools.org/pool/72afe491a962a22e451a706c6e598ad94240a1a2cedfe525a28087ff * PIGY https://adapools.org/pool/2cd1d343ca9e16e97261ac6b93c0fade1e1cc3e45408c26f115f3a94 * TERA1 https://adapools.org/pool/a1bf3567ac65fdd38d4cd5b2abe08244a3741126464d64b2a99d78cd * TERA3 https://adapools.org/pool/b410add58eeca267f5df5387ac716ccc93eac4c6189f0e79c1dfcc7d * MRQR2 https://adapools.org/pool/429fa9846d5ec9d697c71ae725c98e328feda3d0878bc3c5890fede5 * ERGOX http...
