The cryptocurrency community is talking about a very sophisticated phishing attack targeting Ledger users.
According to Twitter and Reddit users, a new scam email is circulating with the address “[email protected]”. The phishing attack specifically targets Ledger users using their names. This means that the malicious people behind the attack already have users’ names in their records and email addresses.
Many important names of the cryptocurrency community continue to warn people by making important statements on Twitter and Telegram.

What Does It Say In The Email?
One copy of this scam email uses the following statements:
“Dear” name “,
We are sorry to inform you that there is a security breach affecting around 85,000 of our customers and that your e-mail address (‘e-mail’) is among those affected.
