We’ve all received strange emails, an unexpected message from an unknown sender requesting funds or an unsolicited password reset.

Phishing (pronounced “fishing”) is an online attack that attempts to steal your money or identity, by getting you to reveal personal information.

In our latest blog we dissect an actual phishing attempt email, highlighting the tactics used such as:

1. Email “From” address impersonation

Be vigilant about possible omissions or incorrect characters in email addresses.

2. Log-in information requests

If you get an email or text message (SMS) asking for your Blockchain.com account email, phone, password, or Private Key it most likely is a scam.

3. “Appearing” helpful

We often see scammers sprinkling through what appears to be “helpful” hints and tips as a decoy tactic.

4. Using official logos and links

Many phishing emails will consist of standard company logos and official-sounding language to make it appear to be real.
Phishing attacks are getting more and more sophisticated, with new tactics emerging all the time.
