Scammers Reportedly Stole Over $20,000 Worth of ETH and ETC

Fraudulent ads lured users to their sites.

Over the past week, Ethereum and Ethereum Classic users have been hit with countless attacks.

Scammers used phishing websites to lure users to their sites. These fraudulent sites disguised themselves to look like MyEtherWallet to steal ETH and ETC. Before notifying their customers, the scammers cheated users out of more than $20,000 with the current price of the coins.

In a post on Reddit, several addresses were featured as the possible scammers. Three addresses show the scammers collected 1571 ETH. The other addresses targeted ETC users, collecting 1893 ETC. It is confirmed 438 ETC were present in one address. However the 1455 ETC missing were not found on the addresses featured in the post.

The amount of phishing sites still operating are unknown, however users are helping by reporting deceitful activity. A handful of those sites are listed below. There may be similar ones that have not been taken down yet.

  • etherclassicwallet .com (takedown request sent)
  • myetherswallet .com (down for now)
  • myetc wallet . com (redirects to etherclassicwallet .com)
  • myetherwalet . com (down for now)
  • myetherwallet . info (down for now)

As a reminder, users must be cautious while navigating through the Internet. MyEtherWallet continues to urge their customers to double check the URL before accessing their accounts or wallets. If you come across any suspicious websites, it is recommended to contact the search engine to remove these ads.
