Hi, I just received an email supposedly from blockchain which asked doing following:

Because to avoid future problems with our servers, we are requesting that all users wishing to continue with their wallets to make a brief confirmation. Please login with this link.

It provide link to some wallet
confirmation code and verification link.

Please ignore that email as doesn't comes from blockchain but from:
ericgoettman.com

Good thing I already save my wallet before!

Report the email to blockchain.info so that they can send out a warning to everyone...

What's worse is at the botton it says
"If within 48 hours we don't receive a reply your account will be reset"

Well that's how you know it's fake at least.

This scam has been going on for a while and also be careful with the emails that have attachments in them. It gets me sick all of these scammers/scams.
