Beware Phishing Attempts from Sites Claiming to be CoinDesk

As bitcoin becomes more popular and attracts mainstream users, scammers are resorting to tried-and-tested tricks like phishing emails and imitation websites to steal your funds. Known examples targeting CoinDesk are listed here: http://www.coindesk.com/phishing-alert/

Emails are similar to the one below. CoinDesk does not court advertising in this way. We have had a few reports of this. Please don't fall for it and pay out any BTC, as you won't have your banner appearing on CoinDesk. You will just lose your BTC.


Advertised sites are not endorsed by the Bitcoin Forum. They may be unsafe, untrustworthy, or illegal in your jurisdiction. Advertise here.
