After lurking around this forum for awhile now, it seems like every few days I’ll see a post about “getting scammed” after some sad kid linked their account to a shady site or gave away their seed phrase.
Giving out your seed phrase is tantamount to dying because you decided to stop breathing. It’s beyond idiotic. I find it hard to believe that someone who has the know how to maintain their own coin and uses dapps could be fooled into doing this. On top of this, the sad scammee NEVER goes in depth on how they were scammed. Just short sentences on how they are dumb.
This leads me to believe that maybe they were never scammed. It’s just a ploy to get pity coin via private messages. I’ve looked at scammer addresses and they are filled with requests for “please give me some”. It’s not a bad racket. Kind of clever.
Maybe I’m wrong, but still, I’ll never send free coin to anyone claiming they were scammed. Thanks for reading my tedtalk.
