Protect your seed phrase! Don't get robbed

This guy is not a happy camper. Got social engineered by fake Apple Inc., and now he’s out $650K.

Please understand the security options and processes in place with the many new crypto services and wallets out there. Especially if you hold cryptocurrency balances in them.

Ouch. That must have really hurt when it happened.

It was a pretty sophisticated attack. He was called on this phone, and the hacker was able to spoof the caller ID or at least the number the call was coming from to be that of a Apple’s online store, if I read the article correctly. That’s not easy to do. Could he have been targeted or did they get lucky with the amount of money he had in this crypto wallet? Hard to say.
