▪ You may receive an email that looks like it
came from the Digiwage Platform, as it has the same
branding and name, but is not, in fact, from Digiwage and was sent by an
imposter. You may be asked by
the imposter, posing as a person from the Digiwage Platform, to provide
your account information and
password or your personal wallet password. Or, you may be directed to a
false website that asks for
this information. These false websites can steal information from you, or
implant bad software on your
computer. They will use the stolen information, and may use it to attempt
to send the money from your
personal wallet to themselves, or conduct other transactions with your
money. Here are key points to
inspect an incoming email, to determine if it is from the Digiwage
● The Digiwage Platform, in an email or on the website, will never ask
for your personal Digiwage
wallet passphrase, or a backup of your wallet software.
● The Digiwage Platform, in an email, will never ask for your Digiwage
● The Digiwage Platform will never email attachments. Be wary or
suspicious of attachments, as the
attachment may contain a virus or malware that could infect your computer.

imposters lack a good
in English writing, and they also fail to proofread.
● Examine the email return address. Does it read digiwage.org or is it
a variation of that from an
imposter, for example digiwage.abcco.org, or digiwageservices.org. These
two variation examples, that
include the name digiwage, are different from the digiwage address, and
therefore a fraudulent email.
These addresses may be inside the email as a link that you are instructed
to click or visit (so read
the address when your mouse or cursor hovers overtop the link, to be sure
that it is a genuine Digiwage
● Variation of fraudulent link addresses may also take this form, and
it is a little harder to
from the prior examples. A fraudulent link can take this syntax:
● Sometimes, a spoofed email has you visit their website inadvertently
because when you click
on its text, it is a link to their site.
● If you inadvertently open or land on a fraudulent website, then close
the window to depart as
● If you landed on a fraudulent website and entered in your account
information, then leave it.
log into your Digiwage Platform account and change the password. If you
gave out your personal wallet
passphrase, then log into your Digiwage wallet and change the passphrase as
soon as possible.
● Report Phishing, spoofed, and fraudulent emails to the Digiwage
Platform using [email protected]
you are concerned or have been a victim. The Digiwage Platform has
responsibility for the platform
account, but unfortunately, the personal wallet is entirely within your
responsibility, so be prudent
by being watchful and careful, and follow safe cryptocurrency wallet
practices and keep current with
safe practices, as they
change over time.
