Simple, a legit airdrop does not ask for your recovery phrase.

Hello dia . Not know .I first time now trust wallet

It was similar link on tweeter that I followed which then caused my coins to get stolen.


Now I did it again on purpose because I don’t have any value anymore.
So, i think that this is all fake, posts like this and I think that someone should investigate how it works.

This is clearly a scam. If you provided your recovery phrase then you just gave away your funds.

Yes, but how can one tell if it is a scam? I realized it was a scam the second I hit import button and got the message that phrase ia wrong. But then it was too late. I still have 1 BTCP somewhere in ether waiting for CB to add BTCP to it’s prtfolio :face_with_hand_over_mouth::face_with_hand_over_mouth:. God know when.

If a site asks for your Recovery Phrase, think twice before giving it out.
