The online world is full of scams and if that scam happens in a big marketplace then it is not possible to accept it. Today's incident is all about a true story that happened with a reputed user of our community.
So, let's get started, friends.
Now I will explain the matter in detail. Our reputed user @rsalim minted his NFT on OpenSea Marketplace & Listed it. For promoting his NFT, He was dropped the NFT link on OpenSea Official discord server. After a few minutes, A OpenSea moderator texted @rsalim on his DM. And he wanted to take verification of @rsalim. Anyhow, @rsalim was ready for verification. The moderator was suspect that, @rsalim duplicate his NFT from others. This was not possible because of @rsalim know he did;t copy others. So, he was ready for verification.
He was asked to update his wallet for verification. And he updated his wallet as he said. And this is the danger that Selim does not understand. Another setback came when the scammer banned an NFT from Selim to prove himself a moderator. And the scammer sends him a mail using the official Gmail account of that marketplace. So that Selim doesn't even understand that they are actually trying to scam him.
To increase Selim's curiosity, he was informed that a huge price offer had arrived on his NFT.
After seeing that, Selim became very interested and he started asking the scammer how he would be verified. The scammer took this opportunity to say that in order to verify the account, he has to keep 0.1 ETH in his MetaMask wallet. Which Selim can withdraw later if he wants.
While Selim was updating his wallet, the scammer hacked his wallet. The only reason for this is that when Selim updated his wallet, he shared the 12-digit phrase he had. This phrase was saved by the scammer. If Selim had deposited 0.1 ETH in his wallet. Then the scammer would have stolen the ETHs and left.
Everyone be careful don't share the private key of your wallet with anyone. Do not log in to any 3rd party wallet except authorized wallet.
