Why Report A Scam?
Report the Scam
It's essential to tag every scam address so that transactions with it can be detected and avoided. There are no Ethereum police. The community has to step up.
Report Stolen Ethereum
You can report stolen Ethereum to the FBI but they're not going to do anything unless it's a million dollar scam. By immediately reporting to WalletValidator, legitimate downstream actors will know when an incoming transaction is tainted and be in a position to act.
Help Make the Ethereum Commmunity Safer
Alert Others before they become victims and help global law enforcement bust Ethereum thieves.
Why Should I Help?
Even if your report doesn't lead to an immediate resolution of your case, you know that it could help solve another case, now, or 10 years from now. The blockchain doesn't forget.
