If you have their twitter handle please let us know the link so we can try to get it reported and taken down.

If it was on Discord, unfortunately, it’s like the Wild West as anyone can copy the visuals of a real admin as long as they’re not on the same server, but please report them to Discord.

Sorry to hear about your bad luck.

They got the AVAX that was stuck
I still have some on the pchain they didn’t get
what is the best way to get that off?

You’d have to cross-chain it from the P-chain to either the X or C and then send it to a secure wallet, because you can’t send P-chain to another P-chain wallet. However, whoever has access to your wallet could be monitoring activity for both of those chains and sweep it with a bot before you can get to it.

Understood.
If I add ledger live to metamask would that stop a sweeper?

If the funds were not already on the ledger, then I assume you used a regular hot wallet. Only funds on the Ledger itself are protected by the Ledger device.

However if anyone were able to get the recovery phrase of that Ledger, they’d have access to any funds associated with it.
