23 Dec Someone help me!! I was hacked! I bought 1k worth of Bitcoin yesterday. Now my wallet, Bitcoin wallet just spent it as I logged in or said o sent a transaction. Wtf just happed? Was I hacked? Please help me
So I just checked my wallet too see what the proce was and everything was gone with a code and note saying payment successful. Wtf? Was my money just stolen?
It was Bitcoin wallet. Why was that not protected? How could someone spend it? Please someone help me
Said payment successful. Reached the payee. Then a bunch of letter codes, and then says network fee. All my coins are gone. Is there anything I can do?
Edit: so looks like I downloaded a fake app. I can’t believe I was so stupid to trust a random app with a thousand dollars. Was only supposed to be short term till I got a ledger or made a paper wallet. I just bought the coins yesterday. Lesson learned. This hurts. Feel embarrassed too.
Thank you all for the help and kind words. Guess that’s just life. I didn’t understand Bitcoin enough to realize that it can be taken from me so easily even through a fake app.
Hopefully it is just the app that was compromised and not my whole phone now. Not sure how to check that out. Scared to buy more Bitcoin and not sure when I should buy more but hopefully I’ll see you guys again soon. Gotta make up these losses first. Tough lesson.
Merry Christmas guys.
Also, let’s all report this shitty scam app and hope it gets deleted from the store saving others from this.
