Help. I´ve been Scammed and they lock my tokens in my wallet

Hi guys! I have been scammed in a fake “official” telegram group. Yes, I know, never give your phrase to anyone. I just learned It the hard way. Be careful! Anyway, the weird thing is that they didn’t steel the coins! My assets are still there both BSC and ERC20, although I can’t transfer them now! Tried many times and always gave me a transfer error (although the GAS fees are spent) It’s like they modified the token code or the script or something in order to block them in the wallet (I’m not sure if that’s even possible) … really very strange. Anyone knows something about this? Thanks!!

Hi, welcome! :wave:

A little weird, could you please share your wallet address?

Sure, here it is:
I have been reading around, and it seems that there are ways to disable transfers for some tokens, but I don't know how to manage that.

I think this is the failed transaction you mentioned: Ethereum Transaction Hash (Txhash) Details | Etherscan, try to call function with a higher gas limit.

Ok! That worked! I didn't want to transfer ETH to that compromised wallet, but I did in order to higer the GAS fees and then move all my assets out from there. And it worked! It´s weird the scammers didn't touch anything, I guess it wasn't worth it for them :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Anyway thanks a lot for your tip, it helped a lot!
