There is an email phishing scam that has been going around recently coming from support@coinex.ws. They are trying to impersonate staff from coinex.pw. The email claims that CoinEX is increasing their security and is requiring all users to create a fund password. If you click the link provided in the email, you will be taken to their phishing site's login screen where they are hoping you will enter your coinex.pw login info. If you do fall for it and enter your login info, they will then log in to your account and drain it of all the coins they possibly can. Anybody who believes they may have fallen for this scam should immediately change their passwords for all accounts they own (CoinEX, other crypto exchanges, email, mining pools, online banking, etc.) and enable two-factor authentication on all accounts. Anybody who has tried to sign up for predictcoin.info (also a phishing scam and owned by the same people that are sending this phishing email) has (or will) receive this email at some point or another.

Below is a copy of the phishing email being circulated.

Code:
from: support@coinex.ws

Dear CoinEx user, we are increasing our security system, from April 1st all accounts must have a fund password. This password will be required only to make withdrawals. Click here to create your fund password.

Kind regards,

CoinEx support

The link provided in the email leads to http://coinex.ws/?create_fund_password (their phishing page)

Any communications coming from CoinEX will only EVER come from an @coinex.pw email address. They will never come from another other address such as @coinex.ws

Please be careful and make sure you verify that any emails you receive from somewhere are actually legitimate.

I got one of these emails, and it raises an obvious question: How did the scammers get my email address (or know I had a Coinex account) in the first place?
