Hi Community,

 

We received a phishing email asking for bitcoins (saying that they had accessed our computers via a trojan virus).  They did have one of the tpg email addresses.  Obviously rubbish.  Do we need to report this to anyone?

 

Thanks,

AAAA

Hi @AAAA

 

I'd highly recommend to run a full scan on your computer and to tag the email as spam.

If you receive a crypto-related email congratulating you on winning some free Bitcoin - or you've been picked to take part in an amazing offer to get free crypto, more than likely this is a phishing email. Often, the email will ask you to click a link and put in your personal details.
