MyEtherWallet Users Targeted With Phishing Email Scam
According to a post from the official MyEtherWallet’s Twitter account, reports suggest that users of the popular Ethereum network interface have been targeted by a phishing email.
In a Tweet from earlier today, the team behind the MyEtherWallet Ethereum blockchain interfacing program alerted users to a phishing email that attempts to trick people into disclosing their private keys.
There’s another phishy email going around asking users to give up personal information.
In the Tweet alerting users to the scam, MyEtherWallet offered advice to help people to avoid falling victim to phishing attacks when using the Ethereum blockchain interface.
Users were reminded that MyEtherWallet will never email first – only in response to support requests – and they never ask for private keys or seed phrases.
