- Lost Ethers in Google ad phishing scam 2 answers
On July 17, I received an alert message (copied below) via Slackbot. It appeared to come from my EtherWallet team, and encouraged a wallet protection increase via 2 factor identification. Inside the message, there was an internet link redirecting to a FAKE internet site. It sounded great but it was a big phishing scam.
All my coins were taken overnight and my remaining balance = 0.00
Is there anything I can do about that? Can I report that address as a phishing address? Is there a way to track the thief? Or to mark the account as a PHISHING Account?
I would appreciate some support.
Below is the PHISHING email. [NOTE that the link was reformatted so that it cannot be accidentally clicked on by people reading this SE post here.]

Due to the increasing number of phishing attacks on MyEtherWallet, we decided to increase the security by implementing Two-Factor Authentication for all Ethereum wallets.
Visit the link below to activate the Two-Factor Authentication on your Ethereum wallet:
Please be aware that you will not be able to access your Ethereum wallet anymore on MyEtherWallet without activating the new security protocol (Two-Factor Authentication).
We are taking this measures to protect both you and our network from phishing and malicious attacks.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
