Is Safe?

I analyzed for malware and malicious content to check if it was legit or a scam. Here are the results:

I checked on Sucuri, and it returned with a 403 Forbidden site issue. Results: Sucuri scan for the site Sucuri results

Sucuri says is a critical security risk because it has been blacklisted by PhishTank.

I then ran a parasite scan with Unmask Parasites on, and it is clean. Results: Unmask Parasites scan for the site

I also checked on VirusTotal, and it is clean; however, it does have an unfavorable community score. Results: VirusTotal scan for the site VirusTotal results

In conclusion, Sucuri says is graded as a critical security risk because a security vendor (PhishTank) has blacklisted a domain due to a Phishing scam. Unmask Parasites says is clean of parasites. VirusTotal says is clean; however, it does have an unfavorable community score. OVERALL GRADE: Suspicious.
