Coinbase Scam Call - Suspicious Withdrawal Activity on Account

Scammers are calling Coinbase customers claiming a suspicious activity, a withdrawal, was found on their accounts. But, Coinbase does not place outbound calls regarding suspicious transactions to customers. The scam call then asks potential victims to press 1 if they did not authorize the transaction, which will connect them to a fraud specialist so they can dispute it. But that so-called special is a scammer, who will attempt to trick their potential victims into disclosing their Coinbase account, personal and financial information, which they will fraudulently.

    I received the second phone call from 800-477-9801 stating that there had been an attempt to withdraw money from my Coinbase account. I was supposed to press 1 to talk with a Coinbase fraudulent activity manager to do something. This was after having received text messages about downloading a Coinbase authenticity program to my cellphone to enhance security. I did neither and am reporting this on this site.
