The co-founder of a crypto wallet says he has been “devastated” by accidentally clicking on a fake airdrop scam.
On the social media platform X, Lou shares his story, noting that fell victim to the scheme despite being an expert in wallets and crypto security.
“I’m devastated guys…
I just got scammed out of $125k of stEth while trying to claim the LFG airdrop. And I’m a founder of a wallet startup that’s trying to improve wallet security…
I can’t believe this is happening, I’ve always been so careful. I saw an article guide to the airdrop and follow the link to sign a message. I didn’t even question it….”
Most wallets require that users sign for a transaction before connecting to a particular decentralized application (DApp), which is the last line of defense before bad actors can move assets out of the wallet.
“This is the first time I’ve been scammed. I always read about others but you never think it could happen to you…
It looked like such a simple message.
It’s always someone else’s problem.”Don't Miss a Beat – Subscribe to get email alerts delivered directly to your inbox
