Metamask Scams At Work: Protect Yourself from Online Fraud

With the surge in popularity of NFTs, MetaMask has garnered attention from users as it facilitates the authorization of Ethereum accounts when interacting with NFT markets.

A phishing campaign, identified by the cybersecurity organization Kaspersky, involves victims receiving an email warning of an impending account block. To avert the block, users are instructed to verify their accounts by clicking on a phishing link.

The phishing page replicates the genuine MetaMask design, utilizing a domain that not only features the “MetaMask” name and logo but also incorporates other brand names. Victims are coerced into providing sensitive information (such as the seed phrase), including a password and private key.

Once users share this confidential information, they are redirected to the actual MetaMask website. However, their account and all their savings have already fallen into the hands of the scammers.

Roman Dedenok, a Kaspersky Security Specialist, emphasized, “Grammar, typos, and wrong domains always give away scammers,” noting that the MetaMask seed phrase theft campaign exhibits all the common signs of detectable fraudulent schemes.
