For more than a year now, we have observed various fund recovery scams that claim in emails to consumers that a Bitcoin (BTC) balance has been discovered in a Blockchain.com account that would be in their name. For the payout of the BTC balance, the consumers would only have to transfer a few hundred (sometimes a few thousand) euros or dollars to cover the recovery costs. Please do not fall for these scammers.
The scammers use the names of companies that are or were associated with Blockchain.com in their communications. For example, the UK registered Blockchain Access UK Limited. However, this company is no longer used by Blockchain.com but has been replaced by Blockchain Access Ireland Limited. In most cases, you can tell by the sender’s email address that it is not an official email from Blockchain.com.
If you have any information about fund recovery scammers around Blockchain.com, please let us know via our whistleblower system, Whistle42.
