Mentions:#OP#BTC

As a brazilian, I'll say his way of looking at things is clearly heavily biased by his political stance. As you said if you look at things objectively our money is pretty stable for a while now, both in relation to the dollar and to the price of BTC, the last big variation was during the start of the pandemic which I won't put that on the shoulders of Bolsonaro because all of the world got fucked up at that time (although I do believe there were stuff he could've done way better to help mitigate it). I'll also add that OP is praising a convicted criminal found guilty with plenty of proofs of trying to initiate a coup and instate a dictatorship, if we have to chose between a thief (Lula) and a wannabe dictator (Bolsonaro) I'll take the thief any day, specially because I have 100% conviction Bolsonaro would also be a thief on top of being a dictator. I'll also add that our history with the military dictatorship is one of the reasons I keep BTC, it is my gold in case I have to flee the country.

Mentions:#BTC#OP

This! OP is clearly right wing biased and hates the left wing, anyone that knows how to read charts could figure out what you just said, declined 30% to ATL during bolsonaro’s awful performance, climbed back up during Lula’s first year and now it has declined 10%, maintaining a range between 5,50 to 4,80BRL to USD thus far.

OP claims to be experienced and not giving up your seed phrase is the #1 rule lol.

Mentions:#OP

I know people are slamming OP here but honestly their story illustrates the fact that absolutely anyone can be scammed or conned in the right circumstances. Look, I will admit that I once got scammed. I was buying a high-end item as a gift, but because I was tired and stressed I ignored the red flags showing the website I was using was a cloned one until I hit pay - and ten minutes later went, "wait what the fuck," as my subconscious finally managed to point out all the red flags to me. Lost a few hundred dollars I had scrimped together for that gift; hard lesson. When I am on form and life is good, you're not going to scam me. If I am tired, stressed, and trying to manage a zillion things at once, it's way easier to trick me. That's true for all of us. I might not fall for the scam OP did, but then they might not fall for the one I did. That's why so many different cons exist - we are all susceptible to being conned *in the right circumstances*. Yeah, OP fucked up and he admits it. Remember it as a horrible warning, but have some grace about it, folks, because there's a chance it could happen to you, especially if you believe yourself immune. OP - that sucks, I am sorry, but glad for your sake it wasn't being scammed out of your home, etc. it's a tough, expensive lesson. 

Mentions:#OP

No, I think you misread, or aren't aware of you're actual feelings. I imagined he/she asked that question due to the fact OP was so easily scammed out of $100k, meaning that how in the actual fuck did he Emma's $100k without being scammed thus far. I think you're unaware of your feelings and literally projected it on another. And to the other one, don't throw the drug addiction thing out... that's low. I'm 15 years clean and work for the federal government, just because one was an addict doesn't mean shit. Cool?

Mentions:#OP

I use a couple of payment methods, including bank to bank transfer and Revolut. In theory you can do cash by mail too. But I don’t live in a country where it’s illegal to purchase bitcoin, so OP’s MMV.

Mentions:#OP

Because you and I and many of us are in a certain mindset and are kind of drilled already to expect the scam. Some people in the space like OP (hopefully the minority) are not or are more naive and susceptible or more easily trusting of others, expecting people are good until proven otherwise or whatever leads to these dumb scams working 1% of the time. All I'm saying is it's not surprising to hear that this happens and will continue to happen forever. We should mix the slap on the back of the head OP deserves with a dose of sensitivity too. They've been through life changing hell because of this after all.

I think the point he's making is that it's not illegal because the country OP lives in is islamic. It's illegal because of other reasons.

Mentions:#OP

In the heat of the moment this can happen even if you are generally cautious. The 30min phone call with the guy that until that point seemed legit buttered him up so OP let his guard down. I am super cautious about scams myself, I don't trust any links in emails, always double check the URLs, I don't login to any websites with my wallet to farm airdrops or whatever.... Yet, two times over the years I (almost) fell for (non-crypto) scams and both times I was absolutely shocked of how I did not see this coming. One was an email with my aunt who was on vacation and got her purse and luggage stolen and asked me to wire her money with Western Union. I just wanted to help her immediately and the story sounded believable (she travels alone often). Thankfully the transaction didn't go through and I became suspicious. The other one was a scam through ebay that made me type my credit card info in a dodgy website to "get paid". I thought it was odd but did it anyway. Immediately after my alarm bells rang and I canceled the card. No harm done in both cases. Still, since then I am much more careful to judge others for their weak moments. We all have them.

Mentions:#OP

I wasn't familiar with this particular performer, but yes, mentalists do use similar tricks and this video shows a good example. He's friendly, asking for help, and overwhelms the mark with information and benign requests until the mark is blindly following directions. OP's scammer used a different combination of tools. Scammers love using fear-based tactics because they are ridiculously powerful, whereas mentalists prefer positive social pressure, obviously because they are ethical entertainers who are not trying to hurt anyone. My opinion is that none of us really know how we'll react to these tactics until we encounter them. Some in this thread are underestimating their power. If you watch a lot of mentalist stuff, then you probably have a good idea of how powerful these psychological tricks can be.

Mentions:#OP

What I learned from following the Ledger sub is that many users have no idea of how any of this works, they somehow assume that now that they have a hardware wallet, their crypto is magically kept safe. Not sure this applies to OP, but if you are in crypto you need to be proactive, educate yourself and fully realize that only you are in charge for keeping your funds safe.

Mentions:#OP

With a passphrase it’s less scary to have multiple copies of your seedphrase around - OP could then have a backup somewhere. But yea, kinda difficult situation

Mentions:#OP

People who ironize about "above average" crypto knowledge and the fact that he entered his seed phrase simply don't understand human psychology. And because of this, they themselves are potential victims. A person is not always in an adequate state of mind. Sometimes they can be in an extremely vulnerable state, for example, having health problems, relationship issues, and a hangover all in one day. The scammers' task is to constantly ping people to catch a person on such a bad day and use various techniques to create a sense of urgency, as happened with the OP. You can be as much of a crypto expert as you want, but you're not protected from making the same foolish mistake, and it's important to understand this to always be on guard and not make hasty actions.

Mentions:#OP

OP has a 100k burn already I don't think the comments here will do much to them.

Mentions:#OP

Did you sell at any point? Bad luck with shit coins? Many coins did 20x, 30c. Even BTC is Over 8x from 6y ago. As I said it's hard not to be at 100k, But of course most aren't, most have sold, most have bought too many shit coins. Many have lost some funds here and there. Most did so many trades on Ethereum discovering uniswap that a lot went pouf on fees. OP sounds like he bought some coins from decent projects back in 2018. Didn't sell anything just let it in his hardware wallet. I double down that that way would more likely put you today at over 100k than not. I saw a delivery driver showing me 200k, having put no more than 5k. Yea that was also years ago, he started putting hundreds in 2017, despite the crash he continued to pour some spare cash into crypto all the way to 2020. A driver, putting a total of 5k through a couple of years , just spare cash every month, is at 200k today What did he do. He never sold. It's probably the most important rule for dumb asses. Just that rule would always work unless you buy shit coins. Then spread across a few projects. Solid projects. Even ADA is solid relative to the thousands of shit coins out there. BTC, Eth, Sol, Avax, Link, maybe GRT, DOT, maybe. Those are solid projects most likely going to be here in 6y. If anyone put 10k spread across these project and isn't sitting on 100k in 6y I would send them the 100k or eat my own dick.

I realize it seems that way at first glance, but OP gave a specific detail which I think is important. He mentions that if a third part had simply said "hey dude why on earth are you putting your seed phrase into a website," then the spell would have been broken and he would have snapped out of it. If you study many firsthand victim stories, you'll find that this is a pretty common element. Some victims lack knowledge, but the cohort of victims definitely includes a significant portion of people who *should have known better* and yet still followed a scammer's instructions. I think the sad truth is, that with the right manipulation techniques, it's possible to put people into a near-hypnotic state of blindly following instructions whose consequences are obviously detrimental to the victim. Decades ago, in my first cashier job, a meatspace scammer got me to give them $50 from my till with a shortchange scam. I didn't detect the scam until counting the drawer. Even after realizing I'd been had, I was unable to clearly identify the exact moment when I'd give away cash. The short version is, the scammer paid with $100, and had a minor special request in terms of the denominations he wanted back. Then he made a minor change, along the lines of "Oh, instead of a 20, can I get 2 tens," then another, until he succeeded in turning the simple operation of breaking a $100 bill into an *extraordinarily complicated* problem. My mind was engaged in the minutiae of the problem, and this somehow left me more open to suggestion. I was following the scammers directions while still feeling as if I was in control of the situation, convinced I was checking each step of the math, while still following the scammer's narrative of what was happening (which is that I was just making change, and not handing over $50 for no particular reason which was the reality). The point of all that is to say, the scammers are using known misdirection and manipulation techniques, developed though trial and error over centuries and handed down across generations of scammers. If you don't have firsthand experience of these techniques either as a scammer or a victim, you really shouldn't underestimate their power. It's the people who think they are immune to these techniques, who are often the most vulnerable.

This is a great case why self custody is never going to work for the majority. The not your wallet not your coins club will say it was OP's fault and they should have known better. Problem is 95% of people out there are OP so that's why self custody will never work. I'd be interested in seeing how the el Salvador system works. Their government or national service gave everyone a wallet. I imagine it's linked to them and much securer than self custody yet with some protection no doubt. Also the chances of government going bankrupt or running off with your money isn't as big as these smaller exchanges

And beware of the possible follow-up scam from someone saying he will retreave your stolen funds..

Mentions:#OP

I feel that while you're right in the human aspect of how people get manipulated into a false sense of trust, there are some red flags that simply are not seen due to knowledge issues which in this case, providing a seed phrase should be a red flag the size of Brazil in the crypto world. It's the same level of knowledge issue where a step in the process is giving the keys to your house or to the bank vault to fix an issue with your mortgage or your valuables. It seems like a level of basic awareness that OP didn't have. Anyway, just my thoughts.

Mentions:#OP

It's not necessarily a knowledge issue. These scammers use highly effective, tried and true manipulation and misdirection techniques. Much of the scam script is intended to befuddle and confuse the victim into a state of blindly following directions. If you study these scams in detail, you will come across report after report of people who fully "knew better" and were in possession of all knowledge required to spot the scam, and yet they still got played like a fiddle by the scammer. It's really easy for us to sit back and judge OP. But this is really less about the victim's level of knowledge, and more about their susceptibility to emotional manipulation, which trumps knowledge and rationality when performed successfully.

Mentions:#OP

I am in shock. These scammers just calling people and telling them to click on things. And people like the OP (sorry, OP, I don't mean to kick you when you are down) just oblige. What? You would not do this under any under circumstance. Why would you? Actually, I have an explanation for it; these people have never been experienced any sort of life experience that would teach them about scams. When I was 18, I got scammed out of $400 Canadian dollaroos. It was one of the greatest life lessons ever and it barely cost my anything compared to what I could have lost on numerous occasions. Since then, I have my guard up for my guard. If you have children, scam them out of something. (Of course, give it back). But do it in a way to let them know they need to be wary of the world around them.

I'd say it's complicated for OP given he asked this question.

Sorry, I may have been a bit patronizing in my earlier reply.  I haven't used those particular sites personally but they do seem like honest reporting.  I think the OP is mostly referring to sites like cointelgraph that run sensationalist features about "analyst says X coin to the moon EOY" or "this trader 20x'd his portfolio in an hour!" Stuff like that

How would they know that? A wallet shows things on the blockchain. There is no such concept as things you bought vs thing you didn't buy. The reality is the post by the OP shows 90% of people are not ready to "be their own bank." They just aren't. The story isn't unique.

I can feel your pain dear OP. Sorry

This is essentially the story of OP learning how crypto wallets and nfts work. Lovely stuff. DYOR, this is what self-custody is all about. 🙌

Swapping to mainnet eth is gonna use a shitload of gas fees. Probably half your balance. Why you gotta swap to mainnet eth? Can you swap to another network instead? Arb one or OP
