I've just got this mail from contact@blokcahin.ca



And link in mail is forwarding to http://blockchain.0800co.co.uk/ which is exactly looking site as real Blockchain. And I don't know how did it get through spam filter...

So be aware and don't trust links in your email!

Depending what email provider you use, are you able to report the email as phishing?

That was on my Yahoo account. How can I report it for phishing?

I don't use Yahoo mail, but from searching around, you can report it for phishing/spam by selecting it using the checkbox, then press the drop down arrow next to 'Spam'. As I said before, I don't use Yahoo mail, so I don't know where that might be. In the drop-down menu, there should be the option 'Report a Phishing Scam' or something along those lines. Choose that option and you're all set (I think). If there's more, just do what it tells you.

And thanks for the heads up about it!

Thanks for posting! If you got a mail with a link, try to copy and paste it in URL bar or right click the link and click open in new tab. We don't know which one is real and which one is fake except if they are revealing URL.

Kindly,

Did you not read the full post? He posted the URL: http://blockchain.0800co.co.uk/, which is a phishing page.
