I got the same exact one and left him negative feedback. I didn’t check where it went, but now I see with the archived version. Thanks

I've said it in another thread, and I'll say it again here, make sure to report the profile:


You see the little button on the bottom right of the private message that says "Report to Admin"? Click on that to report it directly. Thanks for bringing this up; I'm sure a moderator will look into it. But for now, make sure to report him via the pm, as well.



I hope this user gets banned, but until then, I'm also hoping that a DT member can red tag the account.

I wonder what these scammers intend to achieve by infiltrating these accounts. It's not like they expect the original owner to simply give up and stay quiet about it. Can they quickly sell the account? Yes but they don't have access to the staked coin address(es) of the account so selling is probably not a motive. Will they use the account to scam other people here? Maybe but then again the account's original owner will have reported the phishing incident. The account will then be tagged in record time, giving little time for scammers to use the accounts for nefarious purposes.

It's not like they can access wallets within these accounts so I'm curious about their motives. Any ideas? Just trying to understand the dynamics behind these account thefts.

I have an alt account here that was used to promote a product that I was launching that got hacked. The hacker never changed the password, but they did use the account to spam multiple boards with a trading bot platform with their referral link in it. That account was never part of any sig campaigns, nor is it ranked high, so I don't know what would have happened if it was higher ranked in a high-paying campaign, but all the hackers did with that account was to spam the boards. Of course I've changed the password to the account now, but I don't know how they accessed my account in the first place.
