Mark Cuban Reports Gmail Hack After Hoax Call, Warns Against Phishing Scam

Billionaire investor Mark Cuban reported that his Gmail account was hacked following a hoax call, resulting in unauthorised emails being sent from his mcuban@gmail.com address after 3:30 PM PST on June 22. Cuban attributed the breach to a caller posing as a Google employee named Noah from a spoofed number (650-203-0000), who manipulated Google's account recovery methods. He warned his 8.8 million Twitter followers not to trust emails from his account post-incident. This incident follows a previous hacking in September 2023, where approximately $870,000 was drained from Cuban's cryptocurrency wallet, detected by blockchain experts highlighting suspicious activity after months of inactivity. Despite these setbacks, Cuban remains an active advocate for crypto regulation reform in the United States.
