Short story. Hacker got my uncle to invest, I made my research after all the details found out the company is fake. But now the peopl involved sent him a LINK to downlos METAMASK. I believe maybe they also have access to the profile. Anyways. Help me out, how can I withdraw all of this without them hacking him or stealing it? Is this also how metamask looks like?

    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 https://metamask.io/

    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: https://Support.MetaMask.io

    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. https://metamask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/6286050620955-Will-MetaMask-ever-ask-me-to-verify-my-account–

    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.

    I am a bot, and this action was performed automatically. Please contact the moderators of this subreddit if you have any questions or concerns.

  2. You need to take a breath.

    Company is fake. Same company sends a link. What do you think that link is? I hope neither you or your uncle clicked on it.

    If you want to see how MM looks like, follow the links on this sub (it’s metamask dot io). But this won’t help either because any reasonably decent scammer will make it look the same.

    You need to understand that anyone can create a token with the same name as another token. My guess from the image is that that’s what’s happening here. There’s no money, just a useless token named USDT. Do you see how the $ value shows zero? To be sure about what the token is you need to take a look at the contract address.

    Sorry but it sounds like your uncle already lost his money. Help him to not lose more.
