Unclaimed funds email

Received an email from <[no-reply@coinbase.com](mailto:no-reply@coinbase.com)> with the header ” Action required to claim the $135.89 USD worth of cryptocurrency in your Coinbase account”

The body reads:

&#x200B;

Hi New User,

You have **$135.89** USD worth of cryptocurrency in your Coinbase account that is currently **unclaimed**.

This means it will be returned to the sender if you don’t log in to claim it in the next 14 days.

**Click here to sign in and claim this amount**

&#x200B;

**The URL on the “click here” directs to** **www.coinbase.com/password_resets/** then random numbers and letters. The linked page prompts me to ‘create my wallet’ and set a password to “get started”. I already have an account. Don’t see why I would need to set up a new wallet or password. Feels scammy. Anyone have any insight here?

Thanks

What do you think?
