But anyways there's my part of the story. I'll let the other admins decide.

Andy - Will never DM you without asking
So let me get this straight. First of all you get into a heated argument with someone who has the exact same name and avatar (where you both already could have gotten a warn). Secondly and as I told you that conversation was really confusing and we just have enough tooling to just see who is who. I then muted both of you with the request to change your names and here we are. One situation resolved but now I am a power abuser?

It got heated because he said i used his name, what kind of logic is that ? As if other people don't have same names in a group with over 10000 people. Sure you can delete my messages and mute me because we had a heated conversation. However the having the same name and "confusing people", in my own opinion, isn't a valid reason to mute someone.

Can we de-escalate this situation amicably?

Would be nice to unmute me

Still muted

Can you talk now? One of the other admins re-muted you because your screenname didn't update

Seems resolved now, yes?

Thank you @oldcrypt

You're welcome. Thanks for being understanding.

No problem, sorry for causing a fuss

There is a group called Cardano that runs this scam, where you give x amount of ADA and receive 2x. I. managed to get some info on it, I can share it here so you are in the know

Got this scam from one of the cardano group chat.

How come I am not able to share a photo here?

Can anyone join the scam group chat and be a spy what they are up to. or stay in the group chat and help to spread the words and private msg individually to give them the headsup

Instead avoiding them, why not frustrate them or play along with them in the group chat?

Admins/Ambassadors are avoided by them.

But feel free to play a game of whack-a-mole with them if you want :) If you can, pls fwd an actual msg from them so we can proceed to ban them from observing our chats.

They created several accounts to impersonate themselves and tricked everyone in the group chat as though others people are sending free ADA to them

These are the names the scammers used

Same here... I've entered the SCAM group, found the creator and added to the contacts to report. Is there a way to share his profile/ID to report?

Unless it's Cardano. We have that

didn't work... thanks for the help I cant share his contact here and in private chats...

Spam in trade channel

This guy is claiming to be cardano tech support in a DM to me

Cardano community tech support

Was told by someone in the tech support channel to forward any DM messages claiming to be so to this channel
