Dash cryptocurrency holders fell prey to the fraudulent Dash-Coin.net service, which pretends to be a web wallet and gets access to individual users' keys, stealing their money.
The threat message was posted at the official Dash Core forum on Reddit.

The problem has drawn the attention of the administrator of the online games website Dash.red, Edward Stover. As the man explains, several users registered on the website had the same address associated with a fraudulent wallet-service.
The man goes on, saying that the Dash.red website has many security settings, one of which is the blocking of transactions from different users to the same Dash address. Thus, one of the users complained that his transaction was blocked. He said that during this operation, he went to the address of Dash Public from the "web-wallet" Dash-Coin.net. That's when Stover realized why different users use the same Dash address.
Very simple, but effective fraud.

The Dash Core team, in its turn, urges its users to be vigilant and trust only proven official wallets.
