Don’t Be Fooled By Colnbase or MyEthenWallet Scams

We received two somewhat convincing phishing emails recently from colnbase.support and myethenwallet.com. Hilarious misspelling aside, it’s not so funny if one of these scams tricks you into entering your private information on the bogus websites they provide.

Hi bitcoinwhoswho.com,
MyEtherWallet has recently been targeted by attackers trying to obtain access to wallets on the Ethereum network.
In order to prevent any other security issues, we have implemented Two Factor Authentication.
However, the Two Factor Authentication wallet security has to be activated by our users manually.

In order to set up Two Factor Authentication and to secure your wallet, please visit the link below to upgrade your wallet to the new security protocols.

UPGRADE YOUR WALLET

“PLEASE UPDATE YOUR WALLET ON HERE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE IN ORDER TO MINIMIZE THE RISK OF LOSING FUNDS OR TOKENS.”
Thanks and be well,
kvhnuke @ MyEtherWallet LLC
