Hello everyone, I am hesitant to make this post as i know i will kop a lot of hate but I have exhausted all options. Ill try to keep the story short. My old man has invested into ripple and has been a long term holder since June buying chunks of XRP when he can. He absolutely loves the project and doesn't stop talking about it. Today he came in pale as a sheep and said that his funds have gone he had about 12400 XRP all up. He was storing his ripple on a rippex wallet, which after doing some reading has stopped running its services. I dont think this would affect the balance of his account and looking at the transactions it looks like he may of been hacked :( this is his old address rDgrKAmfs5b3MusVk3aqRj8t6LyK6XnUHv. What makes it worse was these transactions happened back in June and while ripple had its run he was so excited for the future. He was literally unaware of what happened cause he's a hodler. Can any of you to help him reclaim his xrp from the hacker (we have contacted theft report and the binance and kraken exchange to where these funds had been sent). Binance have pretty much said meh we can't do anything until the authorities are involved. I have created a wallet for him on Toast (heard its a good one thoughts?). I am going to send him some of my XRP if no one has any better options on trying to recover his funds. His address is rL1R3kedKh94RQs1VmGdeUNBbqSAHH6GtP if anyone is feeling kind enough to help. Of course you don't have to and i can understand that some of you may be offended for me to ask this of you. But otherwise, any advice is extremely welcome I just want to get his xrp back! MUCH LOVE <3<3<3
Right lets just start by saying I feel sick, physically sick,. Over Christmas I had family up and we got talking about crypto, after a bit of chatting they decided that they would like to invest in some XRP but with exchanges overwhelmed and registrations being suspended they asked if I would mind acting as the middleman and putting the money through my bank and on to the exchange, personally I was against this as I know how volatile things can be and although I'm happy to loose my money; I'm not so happy to risk other peoples. I finally caved and put a modest £2k on to the exchange for them with 50% going on a selection of alts and 50% going on XRP, they wanted 100XRP setting aside In a wallet for the grandkids a long ways down the line and the rest in to their wallet. so today after the price of XRP dropped and with them having around £1k in profit from their altcoins they asked me to trade those in and pick up more XRP, happily I obliged. Come tonight and I'm ready to move the XRP from Binance to their wallet, I copy their wallet address but before I send I double checked the address, to my horror all their XRP had been taken out on the 31st Dec. Below are the two wallets. https://bithomp.com/explorer/rEAvsfoR3GN8D7YKEdCGBZj81QkFXyfGPv https://bithomp.com/explorer/rftjDErSDDdq93zQK9T6Gxf4aEHcxrv9xP Both these wallets were cold wallets, they were generated and then printed out, their private keys only stored on paper, they were both generated by using https://ihomp.github.io/ripply-paper-wallet/coldwallet-SHA1-cdfbe3260927b6073180a1099f02ef99ce0495e8.html The only thing I can think of is the wallet generator site itself is where the account was compromised! Has anyone else used this particular wallet generator, can anyone clarify its safety / security? As I said earlier I feel physically sick, I know to a lot of people its not a lot of money, but I feel personally responsible, my gut instinct to not play with other peoples money was right and now the only option I feel I have is to reimburse them out of my own wallet.
