I was just contacted by what appeared to be a scammer insisting that I click on a link and connect my wallet to “verify” my validator address. Of course, I didn’t fall for it. But, when I tried to be helpful and inform the Harmony team via the correct channel in Discord, I was summarily, without warning, banned. The thing is, this happened to me about a year ago. So, this time around I chose my words very carefully and provided all the supporting evidence I could. My intention is to help the Harmony community grow more secure, while providing as much objective evidence as possible, because I understand people might not yet know me very well.
Far from being a scammer, I am the founder of a crypto payments company. And we are on track to onboard more than 1,250 merchants to accept crypto payments using the Harmony network. And we are also in talks with two of the largest grocery stores in America, so I believe my company has much to offer the Harmony team. But, now having been banned by mistake twice I am gun shy of helping the Harmony team identify would be ner do wells, which seems like a shame to me.
I have two questions:
- What do I need to provide, so you can unban my Discord account?
- What should I do, or not do, in order to legitimately report scammers, to help the Harmony team grow more secure, while not being banned in the future?
