Today, on this sunny saturday, there is a message coming to my mailbox.
It says like this :

(In order to maintain confidentiality, i cover up people email address contained in this message. Imposter sent email to 50 persons.]


I said to myself, Yeah, brave team using yahoo mail to send this bounty information.
From this point at least we can know that this email is not an official email from Brave Team.

out of curiosity, i made further exploration.

The official link to our Google form (As mentioned in email) :
https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfc0Osf4PT9ZLeoX8CgV3fx7CiECWl9j1DE5pJVOgbNTAG7Og/viewform (careful when you click this link)

Google Form Appearance :
NEVER DOWNLOAD BRAVE BROWSER FROM THIS WEBSITE

It should be very obvious those email, forms and application UI aren't professional.

According to whois, the domain was registration from https://www.openprovider.com/ & they mention reporting abuse on https://support.openprovider.eu/hc/en-us/articles/360001725008-Reporting-abuse
It might be worthy to report this fake website as soon as possible.

Typical automated/template reply, but the domain should be terminated quickly since it's obvious fake website if they bother type "Brave Browser" on Google search

I think those scammers never sleep,
and they always thinking new ways how to trick and scam people...

I test clicked DOWNLOAD  (Do not try it yourself)
and saw that scam is based in Russia, with fake browser file m9iyc.htm




PS
I also reported this fake website to Google and Symantec

Before downloading any program I always double check what is the official website. I know many website have mirrors, but there is always one of them which is the main. I always look for this one and then look for download.

Never click email links, unless you know that particularly email address and have no doubt about its origin

Email address of sender is first and probably main red flag in such cases. Big companies aren't using email services like Yahoo, Gmail and others to send their newsletters and other stuff. This time scammers made big mistake, strange why they didn't used their own domain brave-bounty.com to send these emails, it would make it to look more legit. But remaining things - they did it very professional and probably lot of people might fall into this.

I have received the e-mail several times and the e-mail goes to the spam folder so I have never opened it because it is not only in the name of BAT but other popular coins such as XLM and others. So please be ignored
