Official Ethereum Twitter Handle Warns Users of ‘ETH Funds Recovery Scam’


“Ethereum Funds Recovery for ETH Losers” Has Been Warned as a SCAM!

The Ethereum team took to Twitter to express a scam dubbed, “Ethereum Funds Recovery for ETH Losers” on July 29, 2018. What appears to be a screenshot of a letter has also been enclosed to ensure that those who have received it do not impulsively act upon it.

The letter suggested that supposed Ethereum holders fell victim of a “phishing attack, malware, or remote access hack”, which resulted in the loss of one’s funds. As a compensation for the Ethereum community’s loss, it stated that stolen funds would be returned given that one fills out a form detailing their account information. The letter also states that the necessary action would take place within 2 days’ time.

In an attempt to make this as legitimate as possible, the scammers even went as far as advising investors on how to protect themselves from hacks and related scandals.

The tweet made earlier in the day has been retweeted by 134 Twitter users. The numbers look rather low doesn’t it? Based on the comments made to this post, it appears that not too many Ethereum holders have fallen for the scam. In particular, many have pointed out that it was a clear scam due to the improper use of the English language.

Here are what some Twitter users had to share:

“Attempt at English gives it away.”
