Hi everyone, after placing a comment in this forum in regards to unstaking from the DYDX saftey pool, I was contacted in the forum and via email that I used to register here with a responce ticket, I followed the directions of the '“dev”" on the other side of the ticket and after connecting my Metamask wallet it started switching between chains and draining funds. My main wallet got drained across meltable chains. After disconnecting I checked the different wallets that the funds got drained to and some were over 1.5 million in value
there is probably nothing that can be done about this and I will rebuild over time but just thought I would mention it as I may save one of you from getting scammed the same way, all the best and say safe
I got an e-mail from email@example.com this e-mail adress this morning looking like it is a message from a dydx mod. Maybe it is something similar to yours.

Hey @Jason. Could you write me a DM with a details of the hack here or in twitter at tobyfrei4. I might help with the identification of the hackers. I can’t make any promises, but the amount is substantial. I think it’s worth a shot to try and track them down.
that looks familiar, I think any msg that comes through the forum also gets sent to our email addresses
Hi Stan, thanks for taking the time to reply, the hack happened by connecting my wallet to [HIDDEN LINK] which seems official, the wallet started draining after the dYDX agent asked for my wallet to be connected to the site so he can unstake my tokens from the saftey pool node. I have screenshots of the conversation and TXID’s from my wallets, im still not sure how it all happened as it all seemed official
Thanks for reaching out, I will DM you today with all the details, any help is greatly apricated,
