Beware: Blockchain.info phishing email

Hackers and scammers are getting creative with their ways now, and we recently saw in the news how these scammers are trying to make easy Bitcoins by blackmailing people and giving them false threats. Sextortion, as the authorities have named it, is the way these scammers were trying to rob people.

Many users including Reddit user fulber34 stated that he received an email from blockchain.info with the title as “Warning: Don’t get locked out of your blockchain” and it said that the website is upgrading their database, and they require the validation of users wallet details on their website. This can be another phishing scam as a blockchain website would never ask for validation of personal details.
