New Phishing Scheme to Menace Binance Users

Another phishing attack on cryptocurrency community 
28 March 2018   205

A new phishing campaign aimed at holders of Ethereum and ERC20-tokens on the Binance exchange, was discovered on the network. This is reported by The Merkle.

In the messages sent to the email addresses of users, it is said that Binance has recently made a number of improvements. Although this information is true, the rest of the letters are aimed solely at stealing user tokens.

They are invited to participate in some "event for the import of ERC20", for which it is necessary to provide data from ordinary Ethereum wallets. The form for data entry is on a page similar to the Binance website, but its address is different.

It is noteworthy that phishing emails are received not only by users of Binance, but also by members of recent ICOs, as well as by other crowbanding campaigns.

Binance Exchange has denied the information that it will allow its users to buy digital tokens for US dollars. This is reported by Bloomberg.

These reports are "fake news" the company's spokeswoman said in response to a request via e-mail.

Articles that Binance will launch dollar trading flew Twitter and several crypto-currency websites on Friday, along with the prices of altcoins, including EOS and Monero, went up.

Today, 20th April 2018, a number of reports have been published about the addition of dollar trades on Binance, but all of them, in fact, are a reference to an earlier article of the same Bloomberg, published on March 23, in which the CEO of the exchange, Zhao Changpeng, talked about the company's plans to move to Malta , the search for a banking partner and the possible launch of trading under the "fiat cryptocurrency" scheme. Zhao didn't name the fiat currency that can be used in this type of trading.
