I send some Matic token in one of my wallets to the other for cover fee of a transaction (0.05)matic but as soon as transfer succeeded, this amount transferred to another address, without any approval or anything.

here, is my wallet transactions : https://polygonscan.com/address/0x1204D7F27702d793260Ad5a406dDEE7660d21B61

you can see my last 2 transactions and check what happened to this amount. im happy because this amount actually is nothing, but i'm curious about what happened exactly?

You let your phrases or private key vulnerable. Someone has a script running 24/7 in a way that everytime your account receive a deposit of ETH or specific tokens it will be transfered to this address there. Start a new wallet.

  • I don't think so, also its happened for me before, when i send some another matic from my first wallet to another wallet? in this theory ,when i send some matic to an address, after that, reception wallet transfer it another address, so it looks problem was about my sender wallet, but i have some matic in my sender wallet and nobody transferred them till now.
