ClickSlice Scam Alert

We have unfortunately been made aware that fraudsters are copying elements of ClickSlice’s branding and using lookalike domains to deceive individuals. 

These fraudulent websites are engaging in phishing scams and extortion attempts.

Who Are the Scammers & How Are They Operating?

Here are a few site names we’ve come across and have successfully taken down by filing a complaint with the domain registrars, but please be aware of any others with similar domain names.

  • clickslice-apps.click
  • clickslice-uk.click
  • clickslice-uk.com
  • clickslice-uk.cc
  • clicksliceapp.cc
  • clickslice-app.com

Note: we are not linking to them for safety purposes, but here are some screenshots of what these domains look like.

In addition to using these websites, the scammers have also been:

  • Using fake legal documents to showcase their “authenticity”
  • Asking individuals to set up an account on CashApp and paying $20 to start conversations about fake job opportunities at ClickSlice
  • Using Telegram and WhatsApp to make contact with individuals (these are apps that ClickSlice will never use to initiate conversations). 

Below are the known WhatsApp and telegram numbers the scammers are using:

  1. +1 (774) 474-8814
  2. +1 (706) 909-8963
  3. +1 (620) 233-4335
  4. +1 (251) 420-1088

How to Spot the Real ClickSlice

  • Our official website domain is clickslice.co.uk, if you are contacted from any other domain, it is NOT us.
  • ClickSlice will never use apps like WhatsApp or Telegram to contact you. If we email you, it will be from a clickslice.co.uk email address and include a signature that looks like the below.
  • If you’re unsure whether a real ClickSlice is reaching out to you, you can verify this by emailing us at hello@clickslice.co.uk 
  • We will only publish job opportunities on our website careers page and on our official LinkedIn Company Profile.

What to Do If You Think You’ve Found a Copycat

If you feel that you’ve been contacted by someone impersonating ClickSlice:

 

  1. Do not respond to their emails/messages – ClickSlice will never use apps like WhatsApp or Telegram to contact you. If we email you, it will be from a ClickSlice.co.uk email address.
  2. Contact ClickSlice  – do not hesitate to contact us via our email hello@clickslice.co.uk. Our team will happily answer any questions you have to determine whether you’re dealing with this scam. 
  3. Notify the authorities – if you have given out personal information or have lost funds, contact your financial institution (credit card or bank) immediately to report your suspicions. 
  4. Report the scam – you can also report the scam on websites like BBB to help others who may also be contacted in a similar manner.

At ClickSlice we are proud of our brand and reputation, and are determined to stop these scammers targeting our business and defrauding people around the world.

 

Please stay vigilant.
