Coinbase Pro phishing site found. Please be careful!

I was doing my taxes and attempted to log into Coinbase pro via my PC. Www. Coinbasepro .com is a phishing site. It will take you to a page that looks EXACTLY like the Coinbase login page. However, when you enter in your account information it will tell you your account is frozen and to call their customer service number. This is when I realized it was a scam. I assume had I called, they would have asked me for the SMS code required for 2FA. I immediately logged into the real Coinbase and changed my password. I did not call so they never got the phone number linked to my account. Had I been in total zombie mode, who knows what could have happened. The login page was an exact replica of the real login page. I knew my account should not be locked, so I looked at the address in the web browser, and it had redirected to a random string of letters and numbers. Pease be careful out their folks, this was an EXTREMELY easy mistake to make. The real url is Www. Pro. Coinbase .com. I notified Coinbase of this phishing site, hopefully they are able to take it down. I would imagine the mistake I made is fairly common for pc users trying to access Coinbase pro.

  2. Thanks for reporting this OP! Shame that this isn’t more widely known. They’d probably already scammed a lot of accounts at this point.

  3. I tried to load it and it redirected me to simcast dot com but it’s down now.
    So I guess coinbase took action fast. Good on them.

  4. As of this comment, it now redirects to a spammy fake site that uBlock and AdBlock both warn and automatically block. Thank you for posting this OP, and stay safe!

  5. Damn that’s shitty. We should sticky this so others don’t get phished. Metamask scammers have done the same sort of deal in the past too

  6. Why haven’t every crypto/exchange/broker bought up every URL that looks remotely like theirs to prevent this from happening? I gotta imagine somebody in their organization had to have the foresight to do that.
