Cleaned out!
« on: July 12, 2019, 02:06:22 pm »
Well, I've just been fu*ked over by this 'proposal scam' and have lost $20,000 USD, my life savings and funds I have built on crypto over the past 7 years. I now have nothing.

I was trying to send a $40 payment to an phone wallet and it was taking a long time, so I checked my account again and saw this 'proposal' with some reference to verification to send funds, so I approved it thinking it was something new to verify my transaction. I had never seen this proposal tab before.

Next thing I know my balance is zero. Whoever was involved in developing this new "feature" which is costing people thousands of dollars due to being scammed, really needs to have a good think about WTF they are doing!

I have contacted OL support. I guess it is pointless asking if there is any chance of getting my money back?

If you want to view my account name it is: kurtduncan

Seriously pissed off!

I say it again this is the UI team's fault
they got many payment but continue give us a shit.
I don't known why anybody can be shown as a receiver in the form, even filled automaticly.
I don't known why anybody create a prosposal can be shown in your wallets
when we use a traditional financial app, we known we should only trade to the one in whitelist.

Please have a look how the UI renders the proposal scam at this point. I'd say it is impossible to accidently approve it.

@kurtduncan
You must have been using an old version that did not show you the warning. I checked your history, at the moment you approved the proposal your account was handed over to the attacker. There were 4 proposals showing in your account at this point in time. Unfortunately there is not much that can be done, if you are lucky the gateway can mitigate by blocking quick enough.

warning means nothing,
Do you accept anybody can  create a transaction in your bank page, transfer your money to others? yes, with a warning of course.

Wallet UI is not traditional trading app but universal remote control with all the buttons to operate BitShares network with possibilties that named account carry.

There is:

- Header warning on scam proposals.
- There is no accept button on proposals from unknown source
- There is detailed description that proposal is updating YOUR ACCOUNT PERMISSIONS.

Being:

- Ignorant
- Smart before actually read all the warnings
- Clicking switch to enable APPROVE button
- Approving
- Curious

You will end up losing your funds in real-life world as well.

It's not fault of UI Team, it's fault of no KYC or proper tracking/ban for specific accounts (even on core level) that can prevent malicious ones to carry on with this.
