Subject: Your Blockchain.info Account has been disabled for security reasons

Dear customer,

Your Blockchain.info Account has been disabled for security reasons.

Someone just tried to log into your Blockchain.info account from a different IP address.

The link in the fake email goes to a fake Blockchain website located at hxxps://blockchafn.info. The legitimate website is located at https://www.blockchain.com/. This is why Blockchain account holders should never click on a link in an email message to sign into their accounts. They should go directly to https://www.blockchain.com/ and sign-in from there instead.

Blockchain account holders who have been tricked by the scam are asked to attempt to change their passwords and contact Blockchain for help.

To help protect their accounts against phishing scams Blockchain account holders can enable 2-Step-Verification on their accounts. This is an extra layer of security that will prevent cybercriminals from gaining access to their accounts even if they have stolen their account credentials. Click here for help enabling 2-Step-Verification.
