It's looks like there is another phishing attempt going on using Blockchain.info

Quote
Many users including Reddit user fulber34 stated that he received an email from blockchain.info with the title as “Warning: Don’t get locked out of your blockchain” and it said that the website is upgrading their database, and they require the validation of users wallet details on their website. This can be another phishing scam as a blockchain website would never ask for validation of personal details.

Just giving you a heads-up guys, if you received such email, don't give such informations and check where the email come from.

There is a coinbase wallet scam going on as well,you get notification inside email saying someone is trying to login your account from unknown location,that you need to change your password and once you click on that link it will direct you to a fake coinbase link that almost looks so real

Thanks for posting this. I think this should be posted on beginners and help and should not be tolerated even its an old and obvious scam, lots of newbies here in CT using blockchain.com's wallet without prior knowledge of any kind of scams.

It looks like this email is very dangerous, as it comes at a time when many people, including myself, are getting errors when trying to log-in into the wallet, I can’t access to my wallet (old versions.)

Most old wallets do not allow you to access their updated database so it is best to avoid using this wallet and trying to use any trusted one. (Keep your seed save)

Just giving you a heads-up guys, if you received such email, don't give such informations and check where the email come from.

It's useful to also report the domain used for this phishing attack to both Blockchain and the site they registered their domain at. If enough people report it, the account behind these domain and probably a lot more domains should be terminated because this is definitely in conflict with their TOS and highly illegal by law.

It is recommended that you use a new email address for every (non garbage) service. People tend to use one single email address for a wide variety of services where just one database hack is enough to fill up your mailbox with phishing mails and who knows what else. Poor newbies.  Lips sealed

^ I am just lucky I visit on this board, that brings awareness to everyone including me. But so far I did not receive email from the blockchain.com since I have an account there and still active right now.

^ Good suggestion, it should separate the email address in your blockchain.com wallet.

Most probably those who received such emails are those users who have emails used in other crypto-related websites such as cloud mining since the owner of such sites can sell those email list to someone who is interested of using those info for such scheme.

And probably those ICO related sites that offered airdrops before. I saw those before and someone offered on the marketplace(altcoins) that hundreds of thousands of crypto related email on his database.

Those who are aware of the website's update, it's no longer '.info' but still sad to think that there might be few that will be caught as a victim of this phishing link. Thanks for the heads up baofeng.

No matter how many times we do alert or advise on most people about phishing links and giving out some suggestions to avoid themselves into those things but there were still who do got victimized and this is why these kind of phishing attempts do still exist because of these noobs that to do continue to feed em up and also even just with your own
common sense you can spot out a legit on a fake one.

I get such mails every week and they end up directly in the spam box which get deleted as well. As the emails of bitcointalk were compromised, hence many users (including me) are receiving such emails as nobody can guess that we are aware of blockchain and bitcoins. I receive PayPal login mails too and mails from exchanges.

I've lost count how many times I've got similar emails. But I'm not paying attention to it. I can tell from first sight that email message is fake. Usually it's enough to look at email address of sender and domain of it. But we, people who have enough experience in crypt isn't their main target. Usually newbies are falling into these scams, and unfortunately we can't do much to enough them...

Even those with no accounts at Blockchain.info also received the email. I'm using separate emails from different exchanges e.g Coinbase, Binance, Kucoin, Bittrex, our local exchange, etc. The one I used on Coinbase and Binance received the phishing email (registered with the same email).

Is it a data breached? How come those fraudsters able to acquire an email list registered at Coinbase and Binance. I know they do random sending but just wondering here.

Is it a data breached? How come those fraudsters able to acquire an email list registered at Coinbase and Binance. I know they do random sending but just wondering here.

It's possible. Or maybe your email provider sells their addresses database to a 3rd party and they got it from there. Or you somehow forget and type it online on the internet.

My primary email which I used to register at my local exchange never has phishing email though. On the other hand, my public email got spam/phishing email every hour or so.

Most probably those who received such emails are those users who have emails used in other crypto-related websites such as cloud mining since the owner of such sites can sell those email list to someone who is interested of using those info for such scheme.
And probably those ICO related sites that offered airdrops before. I saw those before and someone offered on the marketplace(altcoins) that hundreds of thousands of crypto related email on his database.

Those who are aware of the website's update, it's no longer '.info' but still sad to think that there might be few that will be caught as a victim of this phishing link. Thanks for the heads up baofeng.

No matter how many times we do alert or advise on most people about phishing links and giving out some suggestions to avoid themselves into those things but there were still who do got victimized and this is why these kind of phishing attempts do still exist because of these noobs that to do continue to feed em up and also even just with your own
common sense you can spot out a legit on a fake one.
There are people who are not techie regarding these phishing sites and it's the reality that happens daily that there are who keeps falling on that trap. I feel bad about them but they can't look the difference between the legit and the fake one.

They'll learn once they experienced it. If they can just ignore and don't click any of those links attached to those emails, they can be safe even though they are not techie.

It's an obvious scam attempt with that email. The email that blockchain.com used to contact is through their domain. I've checked my email and the automatic reply that I get is from:

no-reply@blockchain.info

The difference between no-reply@blockchain.info and noreply@blockchain.info is nothing. Email spoofing can be done super easily, so never blindly trust an email just because it says it came from the email address X - even if it matches the legit one. What matters is the content of the email. Is it asking for personal informations? Does the links inside of it match with the real website? etc...

Correct,which there should always be a verification when you do engage into things and your own common sense will tell you that and some sort of research.
For us users who might have some hesitance into some things its better to clarify it out because the primary reason why we are being hacked is due to our carelessness and laziness.

Nope it's not a phishing attempt, I used to receive a 2FA email from them through that email domain. It came from their old domain and there's no personal information that's being asked.

It's just an email about authorization login that and after authorizing, it redirects to their original website so no worries. I think those who have registered when their domain was still '.info' receives the same or its just me.
