The coinbase official telegram had someone posed as an admin of coinbase and scammed so many the last few days…
There was a “Giveaway” promoting the partnership between Coinbase/Tesla/& Elon Musk leading to crypto .
These are the addresses they have used to steal tons of funds from people and still are…
Ether address: 0x002DFd266cE26721C5120b1529FB560fFF6f35fb

Bitcoin address: 3EdjHYGgUZpZqxuxcyKUiFXXfyfJDYwtVD

Xrp address:

I thought this should be brought to the Trust Wallet community’s attention because they are encouraging sending from trust wallet and coinbase saying that it is what’s most compatible. This scam is huge… Already overnight the government is being blamed for millions of Bitcoin being taken out of Coinbase when these dedicated customers believed they would receive double after sending and lost it all. I’ve been so careful and this was so believable it happened to me as well… all because the admin of coinbase official on telegram with 25000+ members had submitted the giveaway… she/he even got me one more time after I reached out to her concerning my funds not being received and assured me it was real and she had been with coinbase for 4 years. I had so many different coins saved up that are gone now and was so excited this would be such a good news story for the crypto industry as I’m trying to promote mainstream Crypto news. The wallet that my funds were sent to leads to wazirx exchange… and I’ve contacted them… The coinbase official Telegram has officially been deleted after I called them on their scam.

I just saw one on YouTube as well the other day and contacted them with no response.

Forsage and similar smart contracts are ponzi scheme and scam

You should have more conscious while chosing any projects. Read those article, so that you won’t be scammed again

I’m not be scammed. Don’t worry

From my own point of view, no legit project or Airdrop will ask you to deposit anything such as money or cryptocurrency. Humans like get rich fast schemes and that has been what these scammers uses to steal money.

The telegram group or channel should be reported as a scam to telegram by the users who got scammed to save others, also users should learn how to contact customer care for information and inquires.

I had funds stolen directly out of my Trust Wallet today. I’m new to crypto. Is there any recourse to this fraudulent activity? I plan to leave Binance Exchange if I don’t receive a reasonable response.

Hi @Tripp,

Sorry to hear about your recent experience. If you got unauthorized transactions, here are possible reasons:

  1. You shared your 12 words;
  2. You saved your 12 words in a very bad place;
  3. Your device is corrupted;
  4. Someone has had physical access to your device.

Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about it. Confirmed transactions at blockchain are irreversible.
