The NFT scammer called Hieu

By IIIGARDEIII | Garde | 22 Apr 2022


I received a friend invite on Discord, and the profile was named after a well-known marketplace platform, this profile also had a verified seal.

I found it very strange that he communicated on behalf of the company, which is the best known in the market.

The first message:

We glad to communicate with you user about to your promotion and it was detects that you having duplicated collection's and we contact you here since we are not banned the users matic as we need to investigate the user's that encountered duplicate collection's issue. Please cooperate here user, Kindly explained where did you get your collection.
[Here was my correct wallet number]
Kindly please confirm if this is your Wallet Address connected to your Nft's Collection.

Okay, it was my wallet number!

And he continues:

Since most of your nft collection is on pending banned to the system because your account still on under investigation we are here to investigate for this case.
You need to request to update your wallet to verify your account in our system for the verification ownership of the nft's.

Sent the print of my NFT with a BAN NFT.

And continued:

So no update will be continue to ban for the nft collection from your account.

I didn't pay much attention, I saw that all my NFTs were normal, I left aside.

After three days, the same profile asked for friendship again, (see that the Discord numbers are different, but the same photo, same stamps), all the same messages, but this time it surprised me.

Okay, but in the second approach the continuation went like this:

You need to request to update your wallet to verify your account in our system for the verification ownership of the nft's.

Also sent a support link, and I saw that the thing was serious.

They submitted a website. I opened it and the "original" marketplace website. I compared them (one with .io and the other .com).
Incredible that they were very, very similar, but in .com there are two boxes asking for the wallet number and the seed of Metamask (never give them the seed).

And I went back to him and asked:

Why do you need the seeds of the Metamask??

His answer:

That is the opensxx requirements for the verification.

I immediately opened the company's support, made the complaint and sent all the screens to them, a few minutes passed and they replied, thanked them and that they would open a call to investigate the case.

I wonder how many people fall for this, this is very serious, they clean a lot of people's wallets.

Who is Hieu?

In the opinion of the people I talked to, they told me they ware robots.

Curiosity:

The most famous Hieu was a 7th-century Irish abbess who worked in Northumbria. She was founder of abbeys at Hartlepool and Healaugh in Yorkshire England. Hieu was also the first of the saintly recluses of Northumbria, and the first known woman to rule a double monastery.
