I received this email the day after downloading the Trezor Suite app from the Trezor website. Prior to this, I haven’t used my Trezor in more than 18 months. I’ve never received phishing emails for Trezor, and I’ve owned my Trezor Model One for many years.
Given the short timeframe between interacting with the Trezor website and receiving this phishing email, I’d be surprised if you don’t have an active data leak.
Thank you for pointing out this phishing email you received. Please note that we do not register any recent data leakage on our end.
These emails usually contain links to phishing websites. A phishing website is designed to lure users into entering their recovery seed online. These websites appear to offer a solution to a fabricated technical problem, but they actually steal the information entered. Once scammers have the recovery seed, they can access and drain the user’s funds. Be cautious and never enter sensitive information on unfamiliar websites.
Phishing emails are usually sent from fake domains such as “trezor.us” or “trezornews.io”. Our official domain is “trezor.io.” Before clicking any links in an email, it’s important to verify the sender’s address to ensure the email’s authenticity.
Please note that Trezor owners do not have user accounts. Even if you make a purchase in our e-shop, your email address will not be used to create an account, and it will be anonymized after 90 days.
