Really sorry @Gio22 I really don’t know how could anyone recover those funds, there are no refunds on crypto, it is the advantage and disadvantage of using crypto, money is truly yours under your control but we are the only ones responsible for taking care of it, and of course this tech is new and we are all still learning, so this scammers take advantage of us, shame on them.

I just lose 9 NEAR there (In nearcrowd.org), this is the receiver account:

https://explorer.mainnet.near.org/accounts/dolbabob.near

I need to create new wallet, right?

yes jeph, you need to

ps. why did you enter your PassPhrase/Seed into another site :frowning: it’s clearly a phishing site. we are warning people 7/24 for this. the only place to restore your wallet is wallet.near.org

no dApp will ask for PassPhrase

Yes, I know, they copied the wallet interface, but I won’t check the URL until it was too late, it was completely my fault. I lose my NCD L1 NFT certificate.
