Yesterday nearly $40,000 worth of ADA has disappeared from my Daedalus wallet and now have a $0.00 balance.
For several months I had been staking my balance in one of the Ocean pools for the benefit of the community. I also transferred additional ADA to my account from my Kraken exchange account.
After transferring from Kraken to Daedalus wallet, I then decided to change the pool to which I was staking to, updating it from Ocean to PEGA.
After doing this, I then went to the Google Play Store and downloaded the Daedalus Wallet - Secure ADA Cardano app believe it was a legitimate app. I noticed there were 150+ reviews over 4-stars so I thought it was legitimate. After installing the app I entered my 24-word keyphrase which I believe was my undoing. The app reported my balance was 0.00 so I figured it just had not updated yet. ( I am obviously newer to crypto ).
Later the same evening I opened Daedalus Mainnet on my computer and noticed 4 transactions sending ADA away from my account. I do not know what to do now or how to get it back. I submitted a support ticket to IOHK but no response.
The transaction IDs are:
I have filed a local police report as well as a report with Coinfirm.
What can I do next? Any help would be super appreciated, I am pulling my hair out at how easy this happened. Also, today, after submitting a SCAM report to Google Play Store, the app has been removed from their store but I kept screenshots of everything.
My one question of hope is this … being that I elected to join a new staking pool, is it possible my account shows 0.00 because the ADA is tied up while joinging the new pool or it it officially scammed from me??
