A Phishing attack is the most common strategy by hackers to obtain your information by tricking you with a website, email, or messages that look like the legitimate website/person.
The most common type of attacks:
- Clicking on a fake website link where one letter could be out of place, such as bitcoinbink.com (official website: bitcoinblink.com), where you will see a site similar, but the information that you will enter to log in to your account will go to the hacker.
- Emails that pretend to be sent from BitcoinBlink, where users are asked to submit their wallet address along with their private key for X reason (usually a promotion too good to be true).
- A message that claims to be from BitcoinBlink and ask you for verification code, email, password, and other information to get into your account to steal your funds.
