Got this in an email a couple of days ago:

Quote

They were able to spoof the email address to show it was coming from no-reply@blockchain.info

I figured I'd leave it in there in case someone wanted to investigate further.  I'll leave the url but remove the hyperlink

Calm your tits, it isn't hyper-linked and it's clear that it's a phishing link. You'd have to manually copy and paste the URL to check it.

I'm dabbling in Bitcointalk again - I won't be making trades with people. If I try to trade with you, ask for a signature from my address 171717... which I have had control of since about 2015. If I can't provide it, I might have been hacked.
