I'm sorry to hear that,I don't have idea bout metamask I used before mew and I was hacked too:( my lesson I learned is,don't sign up any AIRDROP or link with the same password you used to your wallet especially.make a a list of your password.

Very sad to hear that. Unfortunatly, the seed is tied to your wallet, if someone else gets access to the seed they can easily transfer to coins to any other wallet.

Your best bet is to create a new wallet and send all your coins there. Remember you need to consider any PC's or smartphones you used to be compromised now. Don't create the wallet on them.  Use a different PC, maybe your one of the office to create a new MEW address.  Save the private key on a flash drive and send the tokens over to the new wallet.

I would suggest you format your PC and change all passwords. A paid antivirus might also be a good idea. If you have anything else in an exodus wallet or anything then you should move all that to a new wallet as well.

Sorry for your loss mate.

Password is something meant to be secured,meant to be private because when been loosed to someone with zero trust ,your account can be hacked.

No, you cannot change your existing metamask seed words into new, it does not work like a password which can be changed any time. What you can do it create a new metamask wallet with new seeds & transfer your token from old metamask wallet to new metamask wallet. One initiative you can take now is to buy a ledger wallet which is more secure than other types of wallets.

I think you can import a new private key in your metamask so you don't need to change the seed phrase just to make your wallet safe.
Start making ether wallet here https://www.myetherwallet.com/ then backup the private key and save it in notepad for safety then import it into metamask so that no one knows your new wallet. This is what I'm doing because I forgot where I save my metamask seed phrase.

Format your computer and register again with different password.
This is crucial to not get hacked again.
Computer security is hard task, you must often learn by mistakes made before. Hope you will do that.

Maybe you got lured into phishing. sorry for your loss man. better change your password now and make sure that it is strong just to be safe and to prevent another loss. just charge it to experience. i'm sure you will gain more.

LOL. What if there are lots of files, applications etc. that needed to be backup on the system? Are you willing to spend time on it because of your own mistake why your coins loss? It's hard to reinstall all programs from a scratch especially if you already have lots. And besides, the computer itself is not the main subject.

Based on OP's statement, it's clearly his fault and no one to blame here but OP itself. He got a notification on email and I assumed it was redirected into phishing something.

But what I can't understand here is, OP is holding a decent amount of money and 150,000 NTK is worth BTC4.7 as of the current exchange rate and yet OP doesn't know the simple and basic precautions to make the wallet safety?

To OP, no way you can changed the seedphrase. Create another account from scratch and transfer all your remaining funds there.
