Two ways these guys got your email. First, some service you use with that email sold their email list, or is using it to spam on an illegitimate business. More common than I realised before, Open Legitimate Business A. Gain trust and reputation, open Scam Business B, C and so on. Reputation A intact, ongoing valid leads for scams.

Or, hacked database and emails used or sold to scammers.

Which is worse? I can't say. But 1 throwaway email for every new service, and you will slowly be able to identify shady links from the resulting spam.

That's how it should be, but I very much doubt many people here will do that with how they aren't even willing to take care of their own coin storage. People are too lazy, too ignorant, and too confident in the security of the services they use. The only way for them to acknowledge how stupid their internet etiquette is, is to lose money. There doesn't seem to be an other way.

I always make sure I have like 10-15 registered email addresses ready that I can use instantly. That way I don't have to register a new email address every time I sign up to a site or service.

Funny, someone may sold your email from data restoration companies. This is same down SEO companies also doing and making money out of it. May be by that you email address may leaked to them.
Then if you see this phishing emails trash them and don't take your main mailbox.

I didn't get any since I am a coinbase user for long time;)

For experienced crypto users then one glimpse of that 350% on 10 days is already a solid proof that this is a scam but sadly there are still some newbie greedy people
who do fall on this basic scam.

Even me experienced such scam emails which I do questioned myself on where I did actually registered or shared up my email somewhere.

Most likely through some crypto site that you signed up which sold your information and/or are associated with these scammers.

That would explain why your email was available to phishers. Again, that's why people should always be careful as to which sites they sign up with, even though it's definitely not always 100% failsafe since you don't know which sites are going to share your information.

But this is quite an obvious scam that is directed to newbies, and I don't think that it would be able to successfully scam out a lot of people given that it's just repeated so many times. Remember, exchanges will never advertise investments via email, so be extremely cautious when you receive these offers.

Notice the limit otherwise, it will be considered as a donation... Oh well, everything entering will be considered as a donation so, limit or not, doesn't matter.
And yeah, this type of spam comes firstly from a website selling their databases email (hint: ICO website) and then from a compromised website you were a member of.

haveibeenpwned was one of the first and is the most reputable checker to see if your email has been breached, and I've actually used it quite a bit in the past to find out that several of my emails have been compromised due to various sites suffering data breaches and other technical difficulties. For this reason, I usually sign up to sites on a Gmail account that I have made only for signups, and I keep other more important information on another email. Works for me.

I received identical email and style but not with coinbase.

These databases that we used to sign up before probably hacked or sold by the owners of it. Email marketing is really one of the biggest silent industry right now. When I receive email like this one, I'm deleting it or just ignoring it.

But 1 throwaway email for every new service, and you will slowly be able to identify shady links from the resulting spam.

That's how it should be, but I very much doubt many people here will do that with how they aren't even willing to take care of their own coin storage. People are too lazy, too ignorant, and too confident in the security of the services they use. The only way for them to acknowledge how stupid their internet etiquette is, is to lose money. There doesn't seem to be an other way.

I always make sure I have like 10-15 registered email addresses ready that I can use instantly. That way I don't have to register a new email address every time I sign up to a site or service.

Yeah... I do have a set of emails used to sign up at various services, though eventually when I know I want those services long term or build enough trust, I switch emails. Can't avoid spam is the short story, eventually, someone somewhere gets your address. Unscrupulous bastards or unwitting victim of hacked address book/database.

My very first email from 1994 is a reservoir of Nigerian princes and widows, surprisingly, because I haven't used it for recent services, 100% free of crypto spam. Not a coincidence I'm sure... All these Bitcoin scams and spam originate from the bleeding "community" here.

Where you get to be worried is if you have account with Coinbase and the email that this message was sent to was the one you used in opening the Coinbase account. I have received several emails like this especially as it relates to bank account but the moment the message is talking about a bank that I don't have an account, I just move on. I take it up with the bank any time I receive such message from a bank I use because it means there is a compromise on the inside and some are even smart enough to use bank's generate email address.

I won't be surprised if someone falls for this kind of scam claiming because its from Coinbase. Number one thing that leads one to fall for scam more often than not is greediness.

Ive been doing this kind of behavior on where i do make email accounts for the sole purpose on being used for random sign-ups i didnt tend to make use of my main email because i do know the risk or tendency on hacked databases which will really expose out your email and be used by any other means.It might be a minimal issue but newbies that are way too greedy will definitely fall even on small chances atleast they do know that they can make money out on making phishing emails that corresponds on ones wallet/exchange accounts.

Man oh man. I wonder who would fall for these types of scams (unfortunately, there are people who actually do).

I mean, it's just so damn obvious. Coinbase itself doesn't even make 350% in 10 days, let alone offering someone the opportunity to make that kind of returns on their investment? Please. At least make the scam more realistic.

Just be careful with any email that you receive of this nature. And use your common sense in terms of judging what returns are legit and what returns are ponzi-like when investing online. Do your research as well as always.
