Got scammed

Hey guys. So I got scammed for the first time. Tried to mint a free mint and ended up getting some of my NFTs transferred out off my account. I noticed it right away so I disconnected from the site. Now I’m wondering if there’s anything else I need to do to be safe. Am I in the clear since I disconnected from the site?

    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

    11. Learn more at MetaMask Learn

  2. Should be okay once you disconnect your wallet. Create a 2nd ‘burner’ wallet for minting NFTs

  3. Clear cache, privacy, permissions, also might not be a bad idea to go to beefy dot finance and revoke permissions

  4. You’ve got to use a burner wallet. Never interact with ANY dapp or site with ur stash bag wallet. Use multiple wallets. And yea, debank to revoke the permissions

  5. Sorry to hear. It’s a common occurrence unfortunately. You should check out neko who are bringing out their Nekomask in a few weeks, a fork of MetaMask with feature like 2 factor authentification to prevent transactions from your wallet and a quick disconnect feature to disconnect from connected websites with one click. Overall just do your research beforehand but things are looking grim out there, too many scams these days.
