  1. The number has been changed 18884670222

    Took me for 10.3 ETH

    Caught the transaction immediately but unfortunately because of no phone support on any site. Or any way to reverse or stop the transaction.

    Yep without a safe guard for people….

  2. I’m sharing my stupidity and trusting with the community. About 2 hours ago I googled ‘coinbase support button not working,’ because I tried to submit a ticket (a small amount of BTC was sent to ‘coinbase.’) After trying to submit this ticket 5 times, I googled for assistance. Sure enough a coinbase number showed up several spots down on google. Like a dummy I called this number and fell for this scam big time. The guy ‘helping’ me seemed real and genuine, there was the sound of a busy office. He asked for my 2FA number which I gave to him. WRONG! Thank God I store 99.9% of my coins either in cold storage or on a Ledger Nano, or he would have cleaned me out. So my screen goes blank and he is moving the cursor around and talking to me, a few minutes later my coinbase screen appears and I see a $2,000 BTC charge. WTF!! And he hangs up. Right in front of my eyes I see ETH and BTC transactions going through, another 2k . I immediately got on the phone with my credit card companies and my bank and cancelled all the accounts tied to coin base, and I’m trying to get all the charges reversed. I need to submit a claim form to my bank tomorrow. I found the real coinbase support number and they put my account on hold as they try to ‘sweep’ it clean. I feel like such a fucking tool. I was felony robbed point blank. It was mostly my fault, trusting this fake customer support, giving out my F2A, but both coinbase and google do share some responsibility. But for coinbases’ web site not working properly I would have not gone looking for a phone number, and, google should do a better job at blocking fake coinbase supports numbers. So I learned a valuable lesson, NEVER give out F2 numbers to anyone. Thanks for letting be rant a bit.
