I was scammed or hacked. What can I do?
Secure your funds
If you suspect that you got scammed or hacked, firstly, secure the rest of your funds as fast as possible. If the rest of your funds is still in your wallet, transfer all of your tokens to a different secure account so that you don’t lose any further funds. Scams and hacks usually occur from phishing. Note that your device may have been compromised with malware. Ensure that the scammer cannot access any other sensitive information on your device.
