Case Study: How the scammer tried to hack my discord— lurvli.eth (@lurvli1) March 14, 2022
I had a scammer reach out and i wanted to share an example of what they may say to try and hack a project mod/team’s discord ⚠️⚠️
1. Quickly offering an enticing compensation to peak your interest.
This scammer was offering me ~$3K a week.
2. Zero requirements to get ‘started’
3. Offering a fun title with no request for experience/interviews/questions…anything?
hello community manager 👋
4. Requesting you to hire more mods so you bring in more candidates for them to scam 👀
5. The scammer asked to jump on a chat instead, when i told them i wanted to stay anon, the conversation was over.
6. BUT, a glimmer of hope continues as I received a message from another ‘team member’ the next day
interesting how the discord members differ even though its the same project 👀
It could likely be possible that these scammers use a projects name to line up their story, but you can never be too careful.

Successfully IP Logged the attackers.
There is an ongoing attack targeting NFT projects, the attack works by social engineering owners into collaborating with a “legitimate” NFT project (fake site, botted discord, botted twitter)
lets recap the basic frens:
don’t click links
don’t allow DMs
don’t share screens
don’t enable webhooks
…but even so, we’re all human & its shitty that there are people in this space that preys on others to social engineer a hack.— lurvli.eth (@lurvli1) March 14, 2022
lets all spread more awareness and stay safe 💛
