I got scammed by this website:
This YouTube channel: Cardano Foundation is currently airing a “live” stream of Charles on which they are advertising a scam ADA giveaway. The scam redirects to this site: [link removed by @Zyroxa – Thanks but it’s better not to publicize these. You can also email firstname.lastname@example.org ], encouraging people to send 5,000+ ADA to a provided address. Sorry your organisation has to deal with low-life like this, I hope you’re able to shut this instance down.
I went to the link and it looks like it was taken down.

I think this is a scam. Someone on the forum posted about it. Please check. They claim that if you send X amount of ADA, they’ll send back at least twice as much eg. give use 6000 ada, and we’ll send back 12000 ada.
Yes, this is a scam. I sent my ADA and got nothing. I went to it on a Youtube video listening to Hoskinson video and saw a very well constructed website and vision…
Very sad and hope Cardano can find a way to stop these! Is there anyway to get my coins back??

Thanks for removing the link so no one else can report to YT. Good thing the scammers have you helping.
I was directed here by the reddit channel to report. If people do not go to YT and mass report, these videos stay up for days.
The title of the thread is scam reporting. No one should think links posted are anything more than a scam. We need links to report.
Hundreds, maybe thousands get fleeced.
Thats bad for long term ADA and overall crypto adoption if you dont take active measures, or hinder others taking active measures.
Bad call to remove links. But if Cardano doesn’t give a f×ck, why should the community bother.
I mean it makes no sense to post them here because those streams are usually up for a few hours, go offline and the next one pops out.
We are spreading awareness over all our platforms to warn people from such scams.
This same live fake site stole $5000 of my ADA on the weekend under a different web address. Brothers and sisters someone is ripping off another beginner like me. How do we stop this?
Sounds good not to publicize while trying to get this to someone who can stop it…
And yet another scam video. Hope it helps to post it here. Don’t fall for it!
I fell for it today, I just want kill myself these scammers ahould get death penalty, that was my life savings I was hoping to get my daughter’s education from it I was so idiot and stupid fell for it lost $30000 on giveaway scam. Please if anyone can help catch these scammers stop them.
I fell for it as well (today). I was working while listening to videos on youtube about ada and I kept seeing this live video pop up and I clicked it. watched for a bit and the rest of the story is a scammers dream .
I don’t know why youtube can allow this and this sorta of stuff can tarnish a coins rep
I fell for it too - am not sure why it cannot be fixed - if ADA blockchain is truly transparent, then it should be easy for someone to track the ADA that was sent to the fraudulent addresses on the FAKE Youtube video on Feb 15, '21?
ADA 25,000 was lost - will reward help?
U can track here but it will not help u to much
