    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. It’s likely a scam. If they were serious they’d likely suggest using a marketplace to make the trade rather than ask you to trust some internet stranger.

  3. It’s safe to assume it’s a scam. They’re most likely trying to gather your information somehow, or get your MetaMask info. I would suggest avoiding interacting with this person, doesn’t seem worth any type of risk,

    Smart of you to ask!

  4. Metamask is a legitimate cryptocurrency software. This person looks like a scammer trying to use it for nefarious purposes.

  5. So the messaging party is a scammer. The wallet MetaMask is the largest self-custody wallet in all of crypto

  6. As others have stated its likely a scam.

    Thats also a sketchy way to sell an NFT, use an NFT platform or setup a contract instead, lots could go wrong manually with Metamask

  7. Metamask is real, but it’s also very easy to get scammed with it – you have to learn about permissions, coins, secret phrases and stuff, in order to be safe. A rando approaching you like this is 90% likely a scam. They’d likely tell you to input your 24 words into X website or something. Never reveal your words, they are the permanent master key.

  8. Stay safe from those scammers!
