A person on Twitter told me about this DApp that gives her 1% ROI each day and since I was new to crypto and her lies was really believable to me and I had really big FOMO. I first put 100 USDT into Trust Wallet, then after I see the 1% ROI per day I put 600 USDT more cause since I still see the funds in my Trust Wallet I assumed it was safe.But after a few sentences of what she say and have time to read more about the DApp I didn't want to continue the Smart Contract anymore but when I revoke the Smart Contract it emptied my wallet and sent the money to this address?

https://etherscan.io/address/0x88dea47a091bd642464d34c70ffb347c89f3d371#tokentxns

I don't know what's the point on revoking Smart Contract if the hacker can just code an auto empty before the removal is executed and weirdest thing is the scammer doesn't even use the funds. I spam clicked revoke Smart Contract 3 times on Wallet Connect because it didn't register.

Here are the notifications from my phone https://i.sstatic.net/75eip.jpg. So sometimes I scroll it show that 716 USDT was sent with Smart Contract executed and sometimes it just show Smart Contract executed 3 times? I didn't know that accepting the Smart Contract means the website can spend unlimited amount of my money. Here was the malicious DApp I was using:

Phishing site --> https: //veriteus.com/ ?code=0006

(even say partners with popular companies and a lot of participants. I never give my secret phrase/private key away to anyone or download anything so I don't think my PC could be affected by malware because I just accepted the malicious Smart Contract that didn't tell me anything about what permissions it gives. Any one know if I should Full Scan my PC with Bitdefender or switch devices in case?

P.S

All I get to approve was this https://i.sstatic.net/FwqVK.jpg which did not say access to my tokens or how many tokens I'm approving for access at all. I was thinking if I can even start a lawsuit againsn't this DApp for not allowing me to know what I'm approving and that's all it say.

  • Hmm, your case is really interesting. I want to learn more from your unfortunate experience and figure out what happened. Would you maybe be interested in arranging an online meeting?

  • I would like to know what happend and if I could get my money back would be great because I'm a student so I don't get a full time salary and if I had that money I could of leverage bitcoin to 18.3k and rebuy it a while ago so I basically lost more than 700 usdt.

Hi i've seen lots o scam contracts and websites these days but most of them send approve for access your tokens to you, and usually you sign this message without check what you approving, even how many token approving??

Basically you give allowance for your tokens to Scammer, and they can transfer this amount that you approved in a sign message, they try to convince you to spend more tokens and if you approve more tokens for them , they still waiting and do not transfer, after you revoke. they realize that you want to get back your tokens. In this time they can transfer as much as amount which you signed in a approve message.

  • All I get to approve was this imgur.com/a/suySR1j which did not say access to my tokens or how many tokens I'm approving for access at all. Is it illegal to not tell me anything and can I start a lawsuit on the DApp since it didn't allow me to know what I'm approving?

  • Actually when you signing an approve message , message show you simple detail, for example if i want to get approve form you to access your USDC tokens, in a sign message this message appear for you: "Give permission to access your USDC? By granting permission, you are allowing the following contract to access your funds" If you click on "EDIT PERMISSION you will see you giving access how many tokens by this sign, the problem is most of users do not check how much amount approved by this message and also they don't know you can lose your tokens with just signing an approve message.

  • But it didn't give me anything to sign the only thing I get to approve was the picture I sent. It did not say allow me to give access to all USDT in my wallet.

Once you give them your wallet address then they add it to the call function of the contract, your wallet is done just shut it and move on don't add money to try and unlock the value of the shit tokens they transferred to your wallet sucking you in, you will get any value because the coding I have been looking at in these scammers address and contracts don't even a value coded in the contract which the token requires to have any meaning or value and some of the contracts have coding that has a fall back function which as soon as a call function it triggers from you adding balance to your wallet it it will keep send a message to what ever address they set when balance hits the mark it triggers recalls all tokens in the wallet normally to another address and contract so unfortunately you just walk away you can report the address but from what I have seen it don't achieve anything because the amount warning on these address or tokens is amazing but they are still sending transactions one after the other according to all the transactions that I went through. They say decentralised exchange will be great yep for those who know how it works and can decode any contract before hand maybe but not the the Majority of the population that don't sit coding and breathing the exchanges everyday all it is now, is a breading ground for scammers...
