Scammed twice in a day. Can’t believe I fell for it
I’m sorry to say I was scammed today for the first time in my life. I can’t believe I fell for it and then I got scammed in an attempt to get back the original scammed amount!
On Twitter there is the fake breadsapps account that uses the same profile picture as breadapp. They replied to a legit breadapp post about the 5000ETH giveaway if you send them ETH they will double or triple and send it back. In the urgency to get in quick I didn’t check the actual handle or do much research. I sent Them 1ETH
I immediately realised my mistake.
On etherscan on the address I sent it to I wrote a comment that I’d been scammed and a guy named Elijah St. Clair replied and we began emailing and chatting as he said he could get it back by creating a relay node address to send some ETH to that will disrupt the hashes in the nodes of the transactions and it will send back to the address of origin etc. In hindsight this sounds so ridiculous.
Anyway i questioned him a lot and he had good answers and linked to a LinkedIn account saying it was him. Now I know when you google the name it’s the top google result.
Anyway I sent 0.2ETH and so now I lost 1.2 ETH today to 2 different scammers. I made some obvious mistakes that I can’t believe I did. And that’s just about all the ETH I had so now I feel like crap.
EDIT: the 0.2 ETH kept getting sent to different addresses before ending up in an address with $2.3 million USD of Ethereum with more coming in all the time
