As soon as the transaction has been confirmed by the network there is nothing you can do.

Report it to your local authorities and hope for the best.

Im sorry.

Hi @Vick514 ,

I am so sorry to hear your losses. Kindly see this article about scam: [Important] Education for Cardano Newbie - Don't fall for a Scam!

Once more, DO NOT FALL FOR A SCAM (Youtube, unofficial Daedalus/Yoroi wallet, Twitter, etc.)

  • “You DO NOT get something for NOTHING
  • “Use your COMMON SENSE
  • “If you give YOUR money to SOMEONE else, they WILL NOT GIVE IT BACK

same account just received two more transfers, one for 220k ADA and another for 753K ADA

This needs to stop!

If there are administrators, please submit this Charles or something.

Hello and welcome @Vick514

I am sincerely sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, bad actors have no respect for anyone.

Charles Hoskinson, the Cardano Foundation and the entire Community have done and are doing their best to alert users to these forms of scams.

However, it should be remembered that the philosophy of decentralization is that people have full control (and responsibility) over their money. This means that I cannot expect someone else to look after my money.

It is hard to see how many people send their money to these giveaways, without first taking two minutes to verify if they are authentic. Yet then they search for a solution for months.

Best regards,
Nápoles.
