After you register an account on a web based wallet look for the security settings. See if how many kinds of security they offer before you can gain access to your account. Mostly you will find a “Two-Factor Authentication” either via Google Authenticator, via your mobile phone or via your email – go and activate or enable it.

If you can’t find a two-factor authentication maybe they have on the part where you will withdraw or send money. Mostly it’s a “PIN code”, a “Pass phrase” or a “Security Question”. And if there is more options activate them all. Please do not take it for granted and rely only on your login password.
You found a new faucet website (Yey!)
This one is convincing....
Maybe google takes you there or most common way are pop-up ads. It can be any type of faucet maybe it’s a gaming site, a gambling site, just a faucet or so whatever. Well, don’t just put your wallet address on it and start claiming coins because if you do and it turns out to be a scam then you just wasted your precious time and effort clicking and solving captchas and anti-bot links – here’s what you do first:

- Go to google and type “(name of website) reviews”.
- Look for negative reviews about that site. If you found a positive review look for more.
- If there is a video review on youtube watch it.
- Go to websites that host a list of scam websites here.
- But the best place to find answers are on forum sites like bitcointalk.org

If google gives you a link to those forum sites that matches your keywords you have 90% of getting a satisfactory answer.
They offer or ask for a deposit
Kaching! kaching!
You have done your research and it’s not a scam but some of them especially gaming and gambling websites offers you to have a deposit to make things go faster and yes we all want to earn as fast as possible. But if you are not that wealthy enough to gamble your hard earned money then don’t deposit and just be patient to get Bitcoins in a standard way.

Another thing, some or most sites charge a bit for withdrawals. That charge must not be something like “Please deposit this amount to this address so we can process your withdrawal transaction.” Because withdrawal charge mostly deducted to the coins you have earned so don’t fall for that request.

Also, if you are not so lucky on gambling like me I suggest you stay away or if you do – don’t take it seriously and just play for fun. It’s a bit frustrating and hair pulling if you have won a quite big amount nearly to its minimum withdrawal then suddenly you lose just like that, so gambling is a big NO for me. But if you got the Midas touch.. Oh men, stick with the gambling sites because you’ll gonna be a millionaire so freakin' bad buy all of the things you never had... and all of that in just a month more or less.
Behold - the websites for scammers
When users have busted the way such a site is doing, they end up in this websites or so we say they got branded. These sites makes ratings or list and they categorize each one via trust of users from the “suspicious” to a “certified” scam site. At the moment here are two websites you can check out if you don't trust such a website.

- Scamfoo.com
- Badbitcoin.org

For now these are the only website I found that host scam sites, I will add some more later.

Remember, if the offer, return of investment, the way they give, the way how to obtain it are too easy, too big or too good to be true, it's a possible scam. Cryptocurrencies especially bitcoins are very hard to obtain given the fact that as of this time its value continues to rise. Don't waste your time go only to websites that has reputations.
