Can you identify what type of SCAM this is? The token was credited to me in large quantities, but it has no price at all.

The token in explorer is this. According to recent transactions, it seems that 120K is being paid to everyone. Last month, on my wallet deposited the same amount on the BNB network.

in my approvals it looks like this. What danger do you see? I understand that I don't have to exchange and I don't have to contact, but I still don't understand how this scam works. thanks

    1. NEVER share your secret seed phrase AKA secret recovery phrase.

    2. EVERYONE DMing you to help is a SCAMMER.
      MetaMask Support will NEVER DM to help you.

    3. AVOID scammers by turning off your DMs.
      Go to: https://new.reddit.com/settings/messaging
      > “Who can send you chat requests” – Nobody
      > “Who can send you private messages” – Nobody
      MetaMask Support will NEVER DM to help you.

    4. NEVER DM or accept DM from ANYONE offering to help.
      They are SCAMMERS and will steal your money.

    5. NEVER enter your secret recovery phrase aka seed phrase into any website online.
      These are the 12 words given to you when you set up MetaMask.

    6. NEVER go to ANY websites sent to you.
      These are SCAMS and your money WILL be stolen.

    7. NEVER SYNC or VALIDATE your wallet to ANY websites.
      This is a SCAM and your money WILL be stolen.
      NEVER SYNC in ANY FORM: QR Codes, seed phrases, secret recovery phrase, private key, etc.

    8. NEVER call phone numbers, text Whatsapp numbers, DM on Discord or do video chat with people on this subreddit
      MetaMask DOES NOT offer customer support in this manner. You WILL BE SCAMMED.

    9. ONLY get help from Support.MetaMask.io or community.metamask.io
      We are NOT on Telegram, WhatsApp, WeChat, Instagram, Facebook or any social media platform.
      DO NOT DM with people on ConsenSys Discord, as they are probably scammers.
      There is NO exclusive MetaMask Discord.

    10. Back up your secret recovery phrase

  3. Hey! Sending tokens to the wrong network, or directly between networks without using a bridge, generally results in a loss of funds. ‘Bridging’ is a feature through which you can send your funds across different networks such as Polygon, BSC and Arbitrum. While bridging is not (yet!) offered by MetaMask, you can use a third-party bridge like cBridge by Celer Network, Multichain or Wormhole.

    Please always check if the address you are sending to supports the token or network you’re sending from, as blockchain transactions are irreversible. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks!

  4. When sending funds/assets to your MetaMask public address, please make sure you select the correct network on the platform you are sending from, and not on your MetaMask app. The selection of the network should happen on the sending side, not on the receiving side.

    If this happens unintentionally, you can bridge the token to the correct network using a bridging platform. Please take note that you will need to have native tokens of the sending network to be able to do any transactions. Thanks!

  5. Hey, there have been reports of email phishing campaigns asking users to “verify” their wallet to comply with KYC regulations, along with other types of “verification mandates”. These emails/messages are SCAMS! MetaMask wallets are NOT ASSOCIATED with user email address or personal information such as contact or bank account number.

    There’s no such thing as user verification or account verification in MetaMask. MetaMask cannot disable your wallet. Any email to that effect is a phishing scam trying to get access to your Secret Recovery Phrase to steal your funds.

    Additionally, please note that MetaMask is entirely a client-side software and a self-custodial wallet: which means that, no one, not even the MetaMask team has access or control over a user’s wallet or Secret Recovery Phrase. Learn more about how MetaMask’s self-custody works, here. Thanks!

  7. Hi u/StaffAlone

    If you check the comments section for the token contract address (in the link you shared) you can see that other users wrote it is a scam token 🙁 Will leave a blog post here that explains these types of token scams, feel free to read it when you have the time (especially the ‘how the scam works’ part).

  8. This looks like a dusting attack. The rule is that you should never interact eith contracts you don’t trust, malicious contracts.
