I bought this message from “Coinbase” to the e-mail account that I exploit for Coinbase:
“Your account is missing some info that we need to comply with financial regulations. As a result, your account is now prohibited. In order to re-enable purchaseing and promoteing, please verify your identity by providing a valid ID document.”
It got here with the graphical Coinbase brand and a confirm button however trying on the originating area, it got here from Lahore, Pakistan. Is it a case of a Coinbase leak or simply scammers casting a large web?

Hey there, u/markbyrn. Thanks for reaching out to us regarding this phishing email you received. I applaud you for checking the email domain prior to providing any information. All our emails will end in a @coinbase.com domain. You can check this article for more information: https://help.coinbase.com/en/coinbase/privacy-and-security/other/is-this-email-really-from-coinbase The unfortunate truth is that phishing can happen through different means of communication, including emails, SMS texts, social media posts, and URL advertisements. These attackers will brand themselves and pretend to be Coinbase in order to obtain sensitive information, such as passwords and 2FA codes.
