As a few of you know, some phisher tried to collect e-mail addresses and Bitcoin addresses a few days ago by asking for them in private messages, claiming he wants to give away BTC. I replied and used a throw-away e-mail address to see what happens, and I just got the following e-mail:
From: contact@coindesk.com
Subject: New Bitcoin exchange secured 10% higher prices
News has emerged that a bitcoin exchange service has opened in Iowa, USA. The bitcoin exchange http://btcmonetize.com allows you to transfer bitcoin to the traditional fiat currency - the dollar.
With intention to attract new clients, for the next 12 hours http://www.btcmonetize(.)com secured 10% higher bitcoin price compared to the other exchanges.
At this moment the value of 1 Bitcoin is:
BtcMonetize: $646.1
Coinbase: $595.99
BitStamp: $593.00
CoinDesk
The Voice of Digital Currency


So, that's what it's about. Trying to convince you to use a scam exchange. So avoid that URL included there at all costs!
