Mining pool rewards event ( IT’S A SCAM ? )

Hi all,
I like to check with support if a reward event is scam.
The url is vip-mining.top

Text within WhatApp:
Achtung USDT-BEP20 Smart Mining Nutzer. Die Erlöse des Mining-Pools wurden auf Ihre Konten oben ausgegeben, bitte melden Sie sich im Mining-Pool an, um zu überprüfen.

Any idea?
Thanks a lot

Hello,

I have been badly scammed by so called “Binance DeFi liquidity mining”. Naturally I have been stupid to trust these scammers, but I also trusted “Trust wallet” that nobody can make transfers without my approval. This still happened. Is there any way to prevent this happening in Trust wallet?

This is the transfer that scammers just made without my involvement.

Of course I earlier accepted to use dApp bscpool2.xyz, but had no clue if by that I gave authority to scam my money😡

No way to get my money back, I believe ?

@JTS Unfortunately that’s a scam and also it’s impossible for your tokens to be sent out unless you gave access to your wallet by giving out your seed phrase or clicking a bad link.
Please create a new wallet and stop using the compromised one.

Hi Toby,

thank you for your response. So, in practise, it is possible that by accepting dApp’s, I give full access to the outsider? I know for sure that my seed phrase was not compromised.

Crypto industry is still young, and people will do many mistakes, and those ones who are experienced can ruthlessly utilize this for many kinds of scams.

I wish Trust wallet would also start utilizing more advanced security steps, like SMS/email confirmations and third party authenticator confirmations to prevent these to happen. Crypto exchanges, banks etc. already have these in place, and even they don’t prevent everything, it will limit for sure this kind of scams caused by unawareness of the people.

At the moment I believe that only way for me is to stop using these crypto wallets as it is so easy to click a link accidentally, without knowing the consequences and after that I have given full control for somebody else.

br,
John

@JTS Yes it is possible for your wallet to be accessed if you click on a bad link. Please go through the guide below to enlighten better on ways to avoid this:

In my opinion security of the Trust wallet is still not well defined. One can easily get an understanding that as long as you keep your secret phrase secret, nobody can access your wallet and transfer your money. This gives extremely wrong security feeling. It should be very much highlightet that by any link you click or any dApp you use, you provide potentially full access to your wallet and all your funds can be transferred out from your wallet without any kind of approval needed from your side.

@JTS You most likely connected your wallet to a phishing link and approved a transaction from there.

Hi Tobi, I’m new here, it feel weird to talk about wat happend…. I got scammed too, same as @JTS through What’s app. Different mining pool thou. web3bnb14.top
Anyways I am replying cause it bothers me that you, I mean trust wallet, give your users the fake safe feeling that as long as you don’t give out your seed phrase your wallet is safe.
Which clearly ain’t the case… as I never gave out my seed phrase, the only thing I’ve done wrong is to click on a link in the WhatsApp message that linked to a “trust wallet mining pool page” within the he trust wallet browser.

So I think it is trust wallet’s responsibility to get their system more secure.
I will not use trust wallet anymore, because of this experience.
Neider will I recover my lost funds. Although I m still searching (and hoping) for a way to do get the sum back I was so stupid to invest in this scam (and with shame-red cheeks I confess it’s about € 55.000 that I lost)……

@swennen There is a warning not to give out your seed phrase out and it’s also known not to click bad links or unknown links as that could compromise your wallet.

I had joined this mining pool and got alm of my wallet withdrawn.
They still show it on the link as withdrawl balance but are now are asking me to pay tax for the airdrop.

I know for sure that its a scam but trying to understand how ro check if the link is authetic or not.

@Nitinjayanand That link is a scam link, you need to stop interacting with it.

@Tobi Anyway the funds can be recovered. I have lost over 36000usdt. Never thought someone could actually withdraw from a trust wallet

@Nitinjayanand Unfortunately your tokens are most likely gone and there’s no way to recover it.

Hello to all,

Wanted to know something more about minning pool, under url: www. stalink-abc. com (delete space)

It is very suspicious for me, one person asked me to join. Seems like he is trying to push me there.

This guy wanted buy something for me, told me to wait little bit. Was able to send me some cash in advance just to keep it for him.
I had asked him to send it to Binance, he regred. In the end without my acceptation he sent it to minning pool without my knowlage.

Now to withdraw something from there, support is asking me to pay TAX, 20% from profit.
They blocked withdraws, I can not pay this tax from funds I have on minning. This need to be a cash from “outside”. They saying this is the law and I need to pay it in to their finnancial department, and fd will deal with tax institution.

When I am asking for some detail of department, regulations pdf for minning they are not answering.
Definetly do not want do this transfer to unlock withdraws. Something is not ok here.

All this looks bad for me, minning is digging crazy amounts but it is not real for me. Am I right?
Someone knows this minning?
This person is saying it is binance so why I am afraid…

All the best.

@Marpog That’s 100% a scam. You need to not interact with such websites. Most mining websites are fake.

Hello, I have been in a DEFI mining pool since the beginning of last week, attached image.
I receive income every day on my Trustwallet. I just put in the minimum for now, I was apparently selected via Binance to develop the use of TrustWallet in France. There are about a hundred of us on a “cloudmining A810” WhatsApp group, the administrators Dana and Jerry answer questions, in short everything is going very well. I would like to increase my participation, but I find it a little too good.
If anyone knows?
Thank you.

@Totalorgie2000 That’s 100% a scam, you should stop interacting with that.
