Currently 100% of bitly URLs I receive are scam/spam. The owners ignore abuse reports. I blocked it in my network, I think you should do the same. It is not safe to use any short URL services those days, especially those which ignore reports.

Bitly, a link-shortening and redirection service, is technically safe, but it's also abused by scammers. Check the destination and safety of its short links by appending a "+" like this: _https://bit.ly/[short-code]+ It currently takes prompt action on abuse reports submitted to _https://bitly.com/pages/trust/report-abuse (Ignore my underscore ("_") characters, without them, WoT kills the links.)

This is a URL shortener site that enables scam artists, spammers, etc. to hide their tracks and is commonly found in fake youtube videos that use a bait-and-switch tactic to funnel traffic to their hidden site. They are focused on selling their service while having a slow means of reporting a spam/scam customer that is not as easy to use as it should be. Be wary of links that use this site.

Link shortening site which is often is abused by scammers. Unfortunately they don't seem to take abuse very seriously as they only means of reporting abuse is through a broken google form which they don't seem to want to address.

Adverts, possibly malware.

Good website and easy to shorten links, the only problem is that you can't know if a link is safe or not because they're shortened links.
