Is this a scam?
The domain it came from seems to have nothing to do with crypto.

    1. Never share your Secret Recovery Phrase with any site or a person. MetaMask does not use Gmail or web forms. Do not enter your Secret Recover Phrase into a pop-up window, even if it looks like MetaMask. Verify links are legitimate. Scammers often use these tactics.

    2. Beware of fake websites. The official website for MetaMask is

    3. MetaMask Support will never DM you. This is a common tactic scammers use to try and get access to your wallet.

    4. If you need to reach Support: open MetaMask, then menu > Support. The ‘Start a Conversation’ button will start a chat, the bot asks a few questions to help route you to the correct team. You can also visit the Support site from the web:

    5. Do not click on suspicious links or files. This can lead to your device security being compromised.

    6. Do not “sync” or “validate” your wallet with any websites or forms. This is a scam. Never sync and share: QR Codes, Secret Recovery Phrase, private key, etc.

    7. Never call phone numbers, text Whatsapp numbers, DM on Discord, use WeChat or do video chat with people on this subreddit. MetaMask does not offer customer support in this manner. There is NO exclusive MetaMask Discord.

    8. We don’t ask for an email address to create a wallet. We can’t email you. We will never ask you to verify or upgrade/merge your wallet.–

    9. .MetaMask currently has no plans for an airdrop, regardless of any information you may have seen elsewhere. If you encounter anyone explaining the best method to maximize the size of a MetaMask-related ‘airdrop’ you might receive, they’re lying. In particular, be wary of scams (aimed at getting your Secret Recovery Phrase) that weaponize this topic.

  2. The thing you need to keep in mind regarding Web3 is that you don’t give an email address. Think back? 🤔

    Nope, if MM want to inform you of something they can give you a notification within the wallet DAPP. Assume every email from MM is a scam. If they want to an ounce something they can on socials. If they want to contact you they can notify via the wallet.

    This is not financial advice just a little technological explanation of the world of Web3.

  3. It’s not only the fact that you didn’t give an email address. It’s the fact that the point of web3 in general is that you CANNOT be suspended/blacklisted/whatever.

    Sure, a contract or an RPC provider could blacklist transactions coming from you, but then you choose another RPC provider and they can’t

  4. I’ve had MM for so long I couldn’t remember if I did give an email address or not.

    I was 90% sure it was a scam.


  5. Fake. Metamask is NOT a custodian of your wallet, it’s an interface to use it on the blockchain

  6. Everything over email is a scam. Always.

    The exceptions to that rule are so exceedingly rare I don’t mind stating the above as proven law.
