I got scammed couple of weeks ago and lost $3000 . Please beware

Scammer address: https://etherscan.io/address/0x8b9310e47cd2d4aad77735a3218d9420cb152709

It has been flagged as Phishing address by MEW. He has almost $50K in his account.

I was asked to do a KYC with EOSPRIVATE. They have about 5000 people on Telegram Group. Mostly bots I believe (Complete KYC >>> https://eosprivate.io/kyc). I clicked on a phishing link which redirected me to MEW where I entered my private key and signed the message which he asked for. I didn't realize that I am getting scammed. But after 5 minutes, I saw all my tokens being pulled out of my account. May be the scammer has got hold of my private key when I clicked that phishing link. I did a grave mistake and I lost all my tokens.

This is not single case. It's happens with multiple people from long time. No legit ICO or crypto site will never ask you for your private key. It's not possible. Before you enter any password or private key you should double check the address. Because it's sensitive subject with financial. It can't be recovered. Scammer are more then smart from us.

Sorry to hear about your misfortune, @KCR.

I did that airdrop, too but since there were others with the same M.O. I didn't fall for it. Whenever interacting with MEW you should always double check that you're on the official MEW URL. These fake MEW accounts/pages are pretty simple to spot.

The OP thought it was the real MEW site but it wasn't. It's like any other phishing attack.

This is one of the reason why I don't do KYC they do this redirection thing to deceive users to enter their private telling us it is safe, when we all know that whoever got your private key can have access to your wallet, it seems you are still uneducated on how to secure your private key, you have no one to blame but yourself too.
