I am bit confused if there is any other post, point me if any.

As title says, "Don't send any fund if it's been requested by email suddenly"

I believe you all got my point really what I want to say. If not then read this topic, Email SCAM: "receive Free Bitcoin and Ethereum With Bitcasino"

It's pretty much easier for hacker to hack email instead of hack full websites. So they will try to hack email from reputed website where they could get back some fund. That's was happen with Bitcasino. And there is more email scammer, you might receive mail even from your exchange, gambling sites or may from this forum. Scammer could ask you instant bonuses like if you pay 0.1BTC your account will credit with double funds. In that case most of user become confuse since email address is original from websites. And eventually some greedy peoples sent fund in order to catch offer but they don't like to visit even website if there is really any offers. Or no one bother to discuss with community or try to verify the offer. That's the way how peoples getting scam by email.


Conclusions: When you receive such as email don't act immediately. For example, you got a email from forum and asking you reply with your password otherwise your account will block within few hours. In that case you should not react immediately. You should login your account like previous and make a post about that. So you will get right answers from here. So same thing if you got email from gambling or exchange about offer to send fund then don't react. Just simply visit their website find there is any info about offer. Then try to contact via telegram chat with others user or by Twitter or Fb page. Check every where about their offer. If nothing there means you got fake mail or email has been hacked.

Remember, any website admin will never ask for money through email. So don't waste your money.

Well, it's already quite frequent scam scheme in crypto world. And looking into this case, scammers got over 2 ETH and some BTC...
People need to learn that companies (wallets, exchanges, gambling websites and etc) aren't sending such emails where they are simply giving deposit address in message. But as long this scam method is working, we will see more and more similar attempts. Unfortunately, people learn best from their own mistakes...

Another way you could attempt to confirm things would be to go to the livechat of whatever site you were supposedly messaged from, though this won't work for all sites because some sites only have email-based support systems, and it's possible that the livechat could potentially be compromised just like an email from a site you use. I would also agree with checking on places like this forum for any important news- threads about widespread issues usually start appearing very soon after they come up.

You should also be extremely careful about what links might be present in one of these emails. Don't click on anything suspicious, especially when it's accompanied by a message requesting funds, and if you must click, find where the link goes so you're not going to a shady phishing site or something of that sort.

Remember, any website admin will never ask for money through email. So don't waste your money.
General rule that should be put up on mind anytime.If anything do ask out some money for some promotions or offers
then 100% of the time they are indeed scams and there's no doubt to that but due to greedy part of being a human then
there are still fools who do easily got hooked by these basic traps without even minding to have some verification if these things
were true or not until they do realize that they already committed up some mistake.They'll eventually learn but its too late and on
next time they would be aware but it isnt really that necessary for you to experience before you learn because we can avoid
these things if we do think and react sensibly.

@OP, Their formats are endless. Resently I've been getting an email about how I can make $50 daily to weekly if I start using brave browser. Why this would be difficult to know immediately is that Brave is running a rewards program of their own. So when I receive the mails, (>5) I tried signing up. But then they were asking for two many private details. Other similar scam is when they mail and tell you that you've been given free bonus. What's the catch? You've to deposit some BTC to unlock the withdrawal wallet.

The moment you sign up in a specific form then that could be the start for them as they already got your information so it's up to you whether you fall for the trap. When it's too good to be true then it's scam, it's really sound cliche but many still fall for it, maybe out of greediness and lack of knowledge.

While the fact that some emails can be bought in the black market, you know everything can be bought now.

In simple terms, you should become more security conscious, always double check from reliable source if information regarding funds recieved via emails can be trusted. This scam technique isn't just associated with cryptocurrency as other industry have recorded similar scams attempt like fake bank emails, fake investment opportunity email and the rest. The social media accounts of this supposedly service providers sending you the email can be used to double check the authenticity of the email before trusting them.

Also for exchanges that requires you to confirm a withdrawal order via email, also double check on those too as the system could be be infected (compromised) to change your withdrawal address at any instant. Make your funds security your number one priority.

I think, this is the right place to talk about my experience. here's my story in some of the exchange that I'm currently using, I have some minor issues with my withdrawals. to be honest, It's my fault that I didn't have much patience to wait for the reply of their technical support.
I went to the public chatbox and shout my problem with a hundred of people reading it. after that, I receive one message that saying I need to mail so and so, which I did asap. He almost mimics the exchange's email address so that his victim will not be aware of anything strange. after I sent him an email and I got some replies from saying that saying:

Code:
Hello!

We checked your account. There is a technical issue with it.  Some wallets have old chains and wrong configuration. Moreover XRP wallet has an old version and does not support correct transactions. I talked to our tech. team and they have found a solution to fix it.
Please don't try to withdraw/deposit coins to/from your account to avoid new stuck transactions. To resolve the  issue please follow my instructions.
We will have to upgrade your account.  Then you will get your XRP transaction processed and will never face with any issues in the future.
The only problem is to move your balances safely from your old wallets to new versions.
To avoid losses of  balances please  follow my instructions:

1. In your existing Yobit account please click on your user name in the top right corner and select Yobit codes.
2. Then select each coin with a positive balance. Enter the full balance.  Click Create New Code. You will need to confirm it via email.

3. After you confirm the code don't activate it. It will appear on your page as "YOBIT****". Copy and send it to me.
You need to repeat it for all coins with a positive balance on your account.

We will move your balances safely from the old version to the new one and your transactions will be processed.

Sincerely,
Ultramod
Yobit Team

Base on his message he wants me to give him my code so he will be able to get all of my balance. I didn't send him anything because I know this kind of stuff is obviously a scam. I just post it here to give you a clue on what is the Op is saying.

when he didn't get any replies from me, he emails me again:

Code:
If you are ready let me help you to fix your problem.

As you can see ths gus is so desperate to steal people's money. so don't fall to this kind of stuff.

Most of these scams are targeted at people who post openly that they are using these services. You post your email address on the forum for some Bounty campaign and then you post something in a gambling thread and the scammer makes the connection that you are using that service. <They do not need to get access to the casinos database, because most people give them the information on social media or platforms like this forum.>

So they tweak some email service to look like the email being send are coming from the support personal of that casino and they promise you some refund or something to get you to deposit something in return and then they take those coins.  Roll Eyes

I create throwaway accounts for most of these services and I hide my main email account.  Wink
