No, I did not randomly get $80,000 worth of bitcoin sent to me. This phishing attempt wasn’t sent to me at all. A client got this text message and sent me a screenshot not knowing what to do. Not surprisingly, malicious actors are targeting potential Coinbase users, to serve them a fake login, take their credentials, and steal their crypto candy.
Don’t assume you would never be the recipient of Bitcoin accidentally.
Don’t keep your funds on an exchange, use a hardware wallet like Ledger.
And don’t click bunk links sent from unknown numbers.
