I was taken to the woodshed by this scam. I lost a lot of HOT, and it is stinging badly, mostly because I have been in the digital asset world for years and I know better. Here are my mistakes:
- I dumped the email into my to-do list, so I was comfortable seeing it, which let my guard down.
- I wasn’t paying close enough attention to what was actually going on in the community.
- No paranoid triple check everything, like I usually do because I was busy and in get it done mode.
The positives; this was a great learning lesson for me. It showed me I needed to slow down, understand that a few weeks of not checking in is an extremely long time in this rapidly evolving world. Stay safe, make sure you are informed and stay vigilant. H
