There is an unauthorized transaction on my account

If you see a transaction on your account that you do not recognize at first, one of these situations will apply to you:

The transaction did originate from you

It's entirely possible that you don't recognize a transaction because you forgot you made it, or because it's part of a more complex string of transactions executed whilst you were interacting with a dapp. Using a block explorer, check whether you recognize the following traits of the transaction:

  • Date and time
  • Recipient address
  • The dapp involved (which is listed alongside each transaction under 'Activity')
  • The value sent.

The transaction is unauthorized

If you're sure the transaction is not yours, check out our article I've been hacked/scammed to see our recommended next steps.
