Compound Finance “Soft Fork” scam email

Beware of emails with these titles:
Compound Protocol Soft Fork User Walkthrough
Compound Cross-Chain Compatible Soft Fork Walkthrough
networkcompound@substack.com
compoundnetwork@substack.com

And apparently there are more variations.

This very convincing email is targeted at crypto savvy people. But a ERC20 doesn’t ‘soft fork’, nor does it need to be ‘upgraded to be cross chain compatible’.

According to Etherscan, one of the scam contracts is still receiving txs up to this day. Hopefully these txs are all pending because the guy canceled his transaction (you can do that by submitting another tx with the same nonce but a higher gas fee)
