"Hello, your post was removed because your account is less than 60 days old or you do not have the required 500 comment karma to make post submissions."
Reddit user Pixel-Track introduces themselves as someone from an older generation who is not experienced with cryptocurrency. They reported that they did not share their seed phrase or private key with anyone, however they were attempting to stake their HEX tokens and this was not successful. They report that their funds were taken without authorization. Their wallet shows a transfer of 812,058.73040511 HEX tokens (worth $120,952.02 USD at the time) on April 13th, just prior to their reported post.
Their Reddit post was removed due to a lack of comment karma before they could be helped in any way by the cryptocurrency community.
HOW COULD THIS HAVE BEEN PREVENTED?
While the exact method is unknown, it seems very likely that their method of storing their seed phrase was not secure. They may also have interacted with an attack website and provided this information, and forgotten the specific details.
