Hello ENS Domain Community,
I hope this message finds you all well. I am reaching out to this fantastic community in a time of need and seeking guidance on a situation I recently encountered. Unfortunately, I fell victim to a phishing scam, which resulted in the loss of some of my valuable .ETH names. I am posting here with the hope that someone in the community may be able to shed some light on the situation or offer advice on what steps I can take to recover my stolen domains.
To provide some context, I still have control over the Resolved Address and Controller settings for these domains. Thankfully, the hacker has not made any changes to the domains’ settings or ownership after the scam. I guess it gives me hope that there might be a way to regain control over my domains. But with my understanding only Registrant can control the domain, so not sure.
However, I am not sure where to start or what the best course of action is. Here are a few specific questions I have:
- Has anyone in the ENS community experienced a similar situation and successfully recovered their stolen domains?
- What are the recommended steps to take when trying to regain control over .ETH domains that are still under your Resolved Address and Controller settings?
- Are there any specific contacts or resources within the ENS community or Ethereum ecosystem that I should reach out to for assistance?
I understand that the ENS community is filled with experts and enthusiasts, and your insights and advice would be immensely appreciated. I’m hoping that by sharing my situation here, I can find a way forward and perhaps help prevent others from falling victim to similar scams.
