Phishing by definition is the fraudulent practice of sending emails or making phone calls claiming to be from reputable companies or other individuals in order to get targets to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.
Phishing is often seen in the form of email, but can also be done via phone, text messages, social media, and URL advertisements. Attackers using phishing will brand themselves as Coinsquare in order to obtain sensitive information, such as your log in credentials or 2FA codes.
Always be diligent when replying to emails, or clicking on links, and ensure that the individual/company you are engaging with is who they say they are.
If you suspect that a piece of communication you have received may be phishing, please report it to our team as soon as possible.
