Scam?

Is this some kind of scam on here? I haven’t clicked it but it definitely looks fishy, also if it is there anyway to get rid of it?

    No one from the Trezor team (Reddit mods, Support agents, etc) would ever ask for your recovery seed!

  2. I use a simple rule to determine if it’s a scam: if it’s too good to be true than it’s a scam.

    There is no free money even in crypto.

  3. Looks almost exactly the same as my wallet. After this new upgrade, were you able to see your shib amount in your portfolio? I can see the amount just like your screenshot, but I am not able to trade if I wanted to. Was able to before, but not after the upgrade.

  4. Yes, it has been like this for me also, but does your total amount show in your portfolio assets?

  5. Hey OP, I’m curious and honestly, not in a rude or sarcastic way. But I’m wondering why these types of posts keep coming up and wondering if it’ll happen to me and how come…

    Did you at any point share out your public ETH address to anyone? Whether that’s on Reddit, YouTube, etc. to potentially get something for free? During the last bull run, a bunch of people/influencers gave out free NFTs and stuff and they would say, “just stop your public address in the comment section” and literally hundreds of people would paste their address.

    Just trying to deduce if this action puts people’s address on some sort of list for scammers to know that address is active

  6. How do you remove those bullshit reward links. It’s annoying to have to look at on my wallet

  7. Anytime you see these, I’d advise you not to click on them, personally. There could be anything from phishing links, to requesting you sign transactions that could drain your wallet, dust attacks, or a form to fill in your secret key (again phishing). There’s a myriad of approaches the hacker could take.

    Here’s another big one: let’s say you’re into DeFi and trying to qualify for an airdrop like Jupiter Exchange and you interacted with Jupiter. Hackers will intentionally send phishing links in the form of tokens to claim the fake Jupiter airdrop. Don’t click on it. Don’t click on Medium articles, LinkedIn, or any external link to claim airdrops unless you know it’s official. Even if it is official, I’ve seen backdoor attacks in DeFi applications that have signed privileges to what was aforementioned. In fact, just Google “DeFi hacks” and you’ll see the magnitude. I see countless victims who have clicked on links/were hacked/dApp hacked who have been scammed, and I’d like to prevent further victims in any way possible.

    Consider getting separate hardware wallets and spreading out risk to diversify your funds also. If just one gets compromised, at least it’s not your others.

    I come from a software engineering background in the finance domain, so hopefully that helps.
