Gatecoin Phishing Scam Alert: Fraudulent Job Offers in Canada

Bitcoin exchange Gatecoin warned that has received several reports of fraudulent emails being sent by a person or group of people using the alias “Samantha Anderson” from numerous Gmail and Hotmail accounts.


They claim to be a HR representative from Gatecoin offering employment opportunities in Canada and have requested confidential personal information from individuals to redeem these job offers.

Gatecoin remided:

  • Only emails sent from addresses are authentic (e.g. [email protected]).
  • Gatecoin does not currently have any offices or operations in Canada, and are unlikely to be expanding there soon and so are NOT hiring in Canada.
  • All Gatecoin’s current job opportunities are listed on the company’s website and are only based at their offices in Hong Kong.

These emails are fake and very likely part of a phishing scam.
