During these last weeks, investors in cryptocurrencies have had a hard time due to the falls that these currencies have had, and as if this were not enough, some to top it off, have been doubly harmed by the theft of their wallets.

This happened to one of the so-called crypto speculators, by the name of Jonny Reid, who public on his Twitter account that his crypto wallet had been hacked, from which the hacker stole approximately $203,000 from him.
As he wrote in the thread published on the social network, he had never had a hardware wallet before and had only used MyEtherWallet and MetaMask.
“My security has always been excellent, always wary of phishing links/websites/discord/telegram/social media scans etc,” he said.
Based on his investigation of the possible way he was targeted, he said he suspects a Chrome extension he had downloaded to automatically refresh a page for scheduling a passport appointment.
Reid further reported that he tracked the stolen funds to a cryptocurrency exchange called “Fixed Float” until they disappeared, which he contacted for help, though they told him they couldn’t provide him with server logs without a request from authorities.
A response that, according to his tweet thread, made Reid much angrier, since he was bothered “by the fact that they cannot provide me with any details to help me follow the trail.”
