Why did Metamask labelled this as fradulent? Advice needed.

Hi all, advice needed.

This morning I saw a transaction sent from my wallet which I did not perform for 0.00 USDC, Metamask tagged this as fradulent.

The assets are in my Ledger so nothing is lost. I searched this unknown receiving wallet address and there’s only 2 ERC20 token txns in this wallet so far. I am attaching the screenshots here:

My question:

1. Does that mean my wallet is at risk? Can someone actually use my wallet address to send 0.00 USDC to another wallet?
2. If I need to move my assets as a precaution, does this mean I need to create a new Ledger wallet with a new seed phrase?

Your advice is appreciated, thank you in advance.

  1. This looks like an address poisoning scam. Very common.

    Scammers insert these transactions in the hope you copy and paste their address when you make a future transaction.

    There’s nothing to worry about, your wallet is fine.

  2. I have no idea. That is really weird.

    I don’t know how anyone can send 0 of anything. Are you sure it’s 0.00 USDC and not rounded down from 0.00000002241 USDC? Like open up the tx and see if it’s really something like that.

    And check your token approvals to see if there are any USDC approvals there that look fishy. Probably revoke every approval on that wallet just to be safe.

    And check that tx, was there any contract executing that? Or was it just a transfer?
