Definitely phishing. If you reset your password by following the link in this email, change it again if you can, then check your history and notify Dwolla immediately. Do not ever follow links from emails that supposedly lead to financial institutions.

Some people got a phishing email, maybe. The one I got was legit. The link redirected to https://www.dwolla.com/default.aspx. Not that I used it, but I did check it.

Actually, hmm - I just checked where the link actually went, and it was a 302 redirect that does land at a Dwolla https page. So maybe it was legit. I still don't recommend following links like that; if you do reset your password, you should do so by typing https://www.dwolla.com into the address bar directly.

I assumed it was phishing and actually reported it to their phishing report email address. It seemed impossible that it was really from Dwolla since the URL in the email was not pointing to dwolla.com

I can't imagine why they would set up a redirect like that. Maybe the phishing attempt was reported to the hosting company and they neutralized it by redirecting to the dwolla site?

Nope, they mass mailed everyone via MailChimp instead of directly.

They might figure that some people use the same password for both Dwolla and Mt Gox. It's probably just a precaution.

We were able to identify and catch two dwolla hackers last week. The hackers had used the leaked Mt.Gox passwords.

I got this email from dwolla. My email linked to mtgox was not the same as the one that I had linked to dwolla, so that made me think that it probably wasn't a phishing attempt.
It still looks really suspect though.

I sent a support ticket to dwolla and they sorted out my password issue. Turns out you can't copy/paste your new password from their email because some goofy formatting information gets inserted as well. Oh, and the email from MailChimp was legitimate, if ill-advised.
