so like the title says i lost my reddcoin due to a virus i accidently downloaded and my anti virus did not detect it. what it did was it would modifie my copy paste of my adress to another address…where i did not notice. lost 300 $ worth… -.-… that was around 5 million reddcoin. the virus name is svchoti…somthing like that. had to reboot pc and reinstall redddcoin wallet… anyways i wanted to keep you guys informed to be carefull always when pasting your adress, and always look up if it matches the info you put. or you may loose more.
So... i lost my reddcoin du too a virus
@Reddcoinnoob that is very bad luck. Sorry to hear
We live in a age where it can be very easy to be duped out of our hard earned wealth.
Over the weekend, I had to help with a relative who had been scammed by a webpage posing as system being blocked and required remote technical support. The site posing as a legit message, and the relative was duly concerned.
One of the things that Redd-ID will help with is to help verify the recipient.
The current method of displaying the address, does not give a clue as to the intended send to address
(you can enter a name for an address, into your addressbook)
With Redd-ID, this will be much more evident
