There are a series of XLM received entries in my Stellar hardware wallet of miniscule amounts in the pennies on random days throughout the previous years. The memo attached to these transactions often show a link to a Claim Lumens or Get Lumens website that I don't think are endorsed in anyway by the Stellar Foundation.

Are these phishing or scam attempts? Or are they the result of Stellar's inflation pool payouts? How can I distinguish authentic inflation payouts (airdrops) from the Stellar Foundation from phishing scams? And how did the phishers/scammers find my wallet address in the first place if I have never been active with my wallet with others?
