    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.

  5. There’s a 99.9% chance the people messaging you are trying to scam you and not help at all. Wish I could offer assistance but figured I’d put that here!

  6. You need to use what is called a bridge. (Because you’re bridging tokens from one chain to another).

    In the past, I’ve used https://synapseprotocol.com/ but please do your own research.

    Also, anyone that is DMming you or messaging you is almost certainly trying to scam you. Do your own research and welcome to the journey πŸ™‚

    You could also try the official Polygon bridge at:

  7. Hi u/riconph and welcome to MetaMask community!

    As u/EsperJosh suggested as well, you could try bridging the tokens from Polygon network to Ethereum network.
    https://metamask.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4836913606683-Field-Guide-to-Bridges

    Or to offer another solution, but this one could prove more costly depending on exchange fees to transfer tokens on ERC-20 and of availability of such withdraw through the Ethereum network, you could also transfer the MATIC tokens to an exchange and from there back to your MetaMask wallet using ERC-20 network. And don’t forget to add the contract address of MATIC on Ethereum network, which you should find on CoinMarketCap or CoinGecko, to be able to see your tokens once the transaction is done.

    Remember to never give your Secret Recovery Phrase to anyone, and to always do your own research in regards to what dApps you use, whether it’s a bridge or whatever else might be.
