On topic-
Can someone help me getting out of this situation. I would not use this address anymore if I didn't had my token left there worth approx $500.
Sadly, Mostly You Can't Do Anthing With That Wallet.
My Wallet Got Hacked (Like You) And It Still Have Some ERC20 Token.
I've Tried To Double Spend The ETH, But The Hacker Ended Up Double-Spending My Double-Spend Attempt(With Higher Gas).
Sadly, Sending ERC20 Need More Gas Than Sending ETH, So, Any Double-Spend Attempt Will Fail (EXCEPT If Your Transaction Get Confirmed Before The Hacker Could Double-Spend)
The Chances Are Low, But Worth Trying(For You). Wink

I think you've come to a phishing site that will replace your ERC-20 wallet. Try doing the same on another computer or device. I think this will help you. Participants of this forum had a lot of such problems. But all the problems were solved by changing the device or reinstalling the software. And in the future, I advise you to constantly monitor the sites on which you go as there is a lot of malicious software.


It's quite unlikely that's someone with access to his computer (=> malware) would act like that instead of just stealing his private-key using a form-grabber/keylogger/wallet-stealer and use his own machine to redirect the transactions (however it's already unlikely enough that an attacker just redirects transactions instead of stealing stored in the wallet).

I Creating A Transaction That Including ETH, While There Are Other Transaction That Including The Same ETH On MemPool.

Example(This Is What I Mean In My First Reply):
1.I Sent 0.2 ETH To The Hacked Address
2.The Hacker Sent The 0.2 ETH To The Network(Waiting New Block)
3.I Immediately Sent A Transaction With Same Nonce Consisting Of Sending 0.2 ETH To My Non-Hacked Address.
4.The Hacker Know That I Want To Spend 0.2 ETH, So He Created New Same Transaction With Higher Gas
5.I Doing The [Step 3] Again But With Higher Gas
6.The Hacker Doing [Step 4] Again But With Higher Gas
7.The Loop Will End When New Block Was Found.

On The Ethereum Network If There's 2 Transaction Spending Same ETH(Same Nonce), The Miner Will Pick The One With Higher Gas Price (Not Transaction Fee)

INFO :
-Ethereum Average Block Speed Is Around 17 Second
-Hacker's Double-Spend Attempt Has A Delay Around 1-2 Seconds

If Your Transaction get Confirmed Before The Hacker Do The Double-Spend. The Transaction Is Success.
Sadly The Block Time Is "Random" Around 10-20 Second So You Need To Do Some Attempt(And Some Luck) Before It Works.

One thing that can cause this is that

Did you copy the proper exchange etherum address ??

In exchange platforms erc20 tokens deposit address and etherum deposit token address are alike but different
Did you choose rightly the deposit address ??

Double spending in ETH is meaningless as it takes sometime to realize that the transaction has been resent and by that time the transaction is already confirmed on the network. In BTC transactions, it takes 5-10 mins atleast to get a confirmation and hence double spending would make sense. In this case, OP sent ETH to a hacked address and has tokens in the hacked address so double spending too won't work here.

It's Actually Easier To Do On Ethereum Since The Block Time Is Faster
The Problem Is The Hacker Is Also Double-Spending The Double-Spend Transaction. Bitcoin Block Time Is Ten Minutes, So If Both Of You Are Double Spending It Will Need More Attempt Compared To Ethereum.
And Double Spend On ETH Is Not Meaningless, As Long You Already Pre-Build The Transaction(So You Just Submit It To The Network).

My Post Above Is Just An "Analogy" Tho, Here Is How My Idea ACTUALLY Work:

1.I Sent 0.002 ETH To The Hacked Address (THE Address have 69 BCC)
2.The Hacker Sent The 0.002 ETH To The Network (Waiting New Block)[Gas : 6 Gwei;TxFee : 21000 X 6]
3.I Immediately Sent A Transaction With Same Nonce Consisting Of Sending 69 BCC To My Non-Hacked Address.[Gas : 7 Gwei ; TxFee : 65000 X 7]
4.The Hacker Know That I Want To Spend* 0.002 ETH, So He Created New Same Transaction [As #2] With Higher Gas [Gas : 8 Gwei; TxFee : 21000 X 8]
5.I Doing The [Step 3] Again But With Higher Gas
6.The Hacker Doing [Step 4] Again But With Higher Gas
7.The Loop Will End When New Block Was Found.

If When The New Block Is Found, Our Gas Price We Used Was Higher Than The Hacker, We Will Win The War With The Hacker Cheesy.

Are you certain you have not being hacked? The receiving wallet seems to have been compromised and the hacker may have used a bot to initiate the movement of funds from the receiving wallet

Very similar to hacking. I'm certainly not an expert on such issues. But in matters of security you need to be very careful and attentive!

I think You're wallet was compromised, I have read this kind of thing a year ago. where you will send ETH on a certain wallet but any amount you sent will also be sent to another address. this is another way to scam people. they put a large amount of token inside that wallet and they let you have it with its private key, the moment you sent any amount of ETH to that wallet it will automatically transfer to another account. That's how I remembered it. maybe this is the same on what is happening to you right now.

You can read more answers here from your question: https://ethereum.stackexchange.com/questions/34143/my-ether-has-been-automatically-sent-to-another-address
Yes, this type of scam I met last year. They sent me an email with a PK of an address for ETH with $ 100,000 inside token value, but no ETH. If you are cheated and send ETH there to transfer the token, ETH will immediately be transferred to another wallet. Looks like it's a smart contract.

Today I have sent a little Ethereum to my address but it instantly transferred to another address. Later, I tried again sending 0.002 ETH and the same. It also transferred that same address instantly.

How to get solve this?

something strange here
why you didn't share your ethereum wallet address here, of course without private keys, just your ethereum address my friend
i'm sure nobody can touch your token or ethereum if you didn't share your private keys to the others,,
except your ethereum address is a smart contracts address

I'm not sure if that address owner has my private key, if he has, why my token isn't moved yet.
It's like a contract made by the hacker. I have no idea how to get out of this problem.
I just want to send my tokens on another address, since when I send eth to my address and it's being transferred within seconds, I am not able to pay the gas fee.

I think I remember it now, there was this person who sends his ETH address with its private key, inside the address a large number of tokens worth a thousands of dollars, but the problem is, there is no gas fee for transaction so the people who see the address are excited to send some eth to that address so that they can get all of the tokens from it. unfortunately after any amount of eth sent to that address it automatically sent it to another address. little they know they are being scammed in a professional way, the reason the person did not get that tokens, its because he used it to lure more people to send some gas fee to that address so he can get more money from it. he goes to every telegram group to send that address so he can lure more people. I think this is the same as your wallet, he didn't get the token because he knows he can get more money when you send some eth to that wallet.
The address was created by me, the tokens are mine. I have deposited that tokens long time ago.
However, seems like no way to get out of it. It's a bit weird that I can't get out of this. If anyone can help, please reply here or PM me.

I'm sorry to everyone if I was really too harsh.

If you enter the target address into etherscan it'll tell you whether it's a contract or a regular address.

Either way your first step is to mark the recipient address as a scam on Etherescan so others will know. Then monitor the transfers into exchanges and notify those exchanges that these are stolen funds. The exchanges should then close those accounts so the scammers cannot profit from the heist.

Other than that there's nothing you can do. Transfers are irreversible. You obviously have malware on your system and should not put this computer back online at all, ever, until it's 100% formatted and reset to factory settings.

I also do not understand what he meant by that since I am not familiar with this type of problem, but I don’t think it will be possible for an hacker to completely gain access to control our address without first finding us faulty of a very weak password, even if they get to install malware on our software, provided we are using a very strong wallet that has extra security tools in place, I think it will be completely hard for the hacker to gain access.

Anyway, I am still waiting to learn more as regards his issue, let us hope they have not devised another strategy that will go beyond strong password and anti-malware tools, because that is all I rely on for now.

It is possible your wallet has been hacked, what i am sure about is that someone is sending from your recipient address to his or her own address it can't just auto send to another wallet your private key has been exposed to a third party. As it stands you should open a new wallet or buy adware wallet for better wallet security.

That is one of the function of smart contract in ETH, you can automate the transaction.
But seems like this is misused by evil peoples to scam other peoples.
Usually they made some address with some token and give private key to public.
Everyone will be tempted to take the token, but need some gas to send the token, then peoples start to send ETH for gas, but the ETH will be sent
to other address immediately. This is clearly a trick to scam peoples.

I have seen this kind of thing happened before, though it was to my bitcoin wallet and not ethereum, but I think you wallet has been hacked, what the hacker did you that he/she wrote a script that will monitor anytime you try to send money out of your wallet, and redirect the coin to a wallet specified by that hacker, all you need to do now is try to sweep the private key in another wallet because the more you try sending, the more you keep giving the hacker your coin, try what I just told you to do and give us feedback.

I have seen these case quite number of times, and I think it only occurs when you have a spam software already on your system that is changing the address for you, first you need to take more precaution, there is nothing you can do about the ones you have transferred already, as they are already lost and gone but you can further prevent it.

I would advise that you first format your system and get a very strong anti-spamming tool, then change your password to a very strong one, never use a weak password as they are easy to guess, for your mail, change all the passwords too, use 2 authenticated password as I see that we have lots of some software too that tries hijacking my crypto mail several times.

I first heard a problem or a case like this. How can our wallet be hacked? Is the lack of security on the devices we use or we are exposed to dangerous links. Should we no longer use the wallet and make a new wallet. So that our assets are no longer taken by hackers. Honestly, I have never experienced anything like this. Has this often happened in the crypto world?

Perhaps you are right and this is a smile in order to conduct transactions that are very dangerous.  But initially, if you are the owner of all these wallets and the funds that are on them, then there are no problems.  But if someone else has got access to your wallet and is trying to withdraw funds from there, but for this they need ethereum, then this is his problem if the film is automatically withdrawn from this wallet.

These guys are really so smart in programming that they will do anything possible to crack any password that they see, they have also gone to the extent of creating BOT services to run scripts that will monitor some addresses they have targeted, but before they can successfully manipulate the script controlling our wallet, we must have given them access to it through our weak password like you said.

So the whole security control is still in our hands too and not to be left as responsibly to wallet issuers, we have to get a strong password that will take 100 years to crack, and then activate some extra security tools like Google authenticator and many more.

So the whole security control is still in our hands too and not to be left as responsibly to wallet issuers, we have to get a strong password that will take 100 years to crack, and then activate some extra security tools like Google authenticator and many more.

A strong password and 2FA can be applied to exchange-wallets but I wouldn't recommend using an exchange-wallet for more than trading.
The best way of protecting your funds is a hardware-wallet... As an alternative you could isolate your private-key from the internet and sign your transactions offline.
More information: [Guide] MyEtherWallet Offline Transactions [SECURITY]

If you don't want to use a hardware-wallet or offline transactions you should at least keep your unencrypted private-key (and seed phrase) off your computer and only use the encrypted private-key (=keystore-file)...
