There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like Bither trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

So this arrived in my email today:

Dear Member,

Notification: You have received an OKCoin.com e-Voucher of 450 USD in your account.

The e-Voucher is attached.


You can top-up your OKCoin.com wallet with this voucher or pay any service where OKCoin.com accepted.

I have received the same email. I am very suspicious. If it were an actual voucher it would just be in plain text, or perhaps a PDF, not 7z file! I will contact OKCoin to confirm, but i highly suspect its a scam. I would advise to NOT open the zip file for risk of installing a trojan of some description.

Also, if you look at the meta data of the email it says:

subject:   Notification!
mailed-by:   server4.zmaximum.ru
encryption:   zmaximum.ru did not encrypt this message

I'm 99.9999% sure OKCoin would not send mail through a Russian mail server.

Thanks for the info, pakage.
