I signed up for a wallet here 3 days ago, and sent 1 Ether to it. Etherescan showed the transaction as complete, and a trace of my wallet address on the same site showed an amount of 1 Ether, but my wallet on EtherWallet showed 0 Ether.

It's now 3 days later and my wallet still shows 0 Ether. I have tried contacting EtherWallet using their support contact form, their email address, and even their phone number, which goes to a completely different company.

Strangely, on EthereScan, there seems to be another transaction on my wallet address showing that the deposited ethereum was moved to another address 1 day after I deposited it.

Can anyone help me out with this please?

  • It seems likely that you will never get that ether back. See the link provided by @RichardHorrocks for more-trusted wallets

  • Sorry to hear about your trouble. Perhaps in the sending an finney or a sabo might be a better idea than playing around with a full ether. Just a suggestion, and again, sorry for your trouble. Sep 26, 2017 at 21:25

I have the MetaMask plug-in installed in my Chrome browser.

If I click on the link in your question1, MetaMask kicks in and automatically redirects me to the MetaMask phishing warning page: https://metamask.io/phishing.html

This means the site tested positive in their Ethereum Phishing Detector. So unfortunately it's unlikely you'll see your funds again, I'm afraid.

See here for their white- and black-list of domains. Stay away from anything on the black-list.

(1I'm inside a VM, I wouldn't normally recommend clicking on links you consider insecure/dodgy.)

  • Richard - Thanks for checking it out, looks like I got screwed :(

  • Hi, I'm a maintainer of the blacklist MetaMask is referencing - you can get more information about a site here: etherscamdb.info/scam/102

  • Sorry to be the bearer of bad news Rick :-( Be careful out there. That plug-in is pretty good for future, though I know it's a bit late now. Aug 31, 2017 at 16:13
  • Annoying - I have metamask installed on my other computer, but couldn't remember the key to add it to this one. Lesson learned I guess. Is there anywhere I can share the address to alert others?

  • "I have metamask installed on my other computer, but couldn't remember the key to add it to this one" - you just need the extension on your browser, you don't need to log into it for it to do the blacklist check btw
