It has been reported that there are
scammers who obtain Gate.io users' contact information (phone number, QQ number, email address, etc.)
using illegal methods, reaching out to Gate.io users and claiming to be Gate.io staff. They make up false
information and share dangerous links luring users to give away sensitive information on their accounts or
even to transfer funds to scammers.
Most scam calls are made from Korean,
American and HK numbers. False links shared by scammers can be assumed to be Gate.io official website by users
who do not look closely enough, due to high similarity. Scammers' mail addresses can also be forging
Gate.io official email addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org example). Sending false emails to
users to commit fraud is very easy and convenient to do for scammers, but there is never a shortage of people
falling for such tricks.
