We at LOBSTR are extremely concerned that LOBSTR’s imposters may be dangerous scammers or phishers.
Many imposters want to collect your private information and private keys to steal your identity, accounts, lumens, and other cryptocurrencies. Recently, we’ve spotted LOBSTR imposters on Telegram, Facebook, Reddit, LinkedIn, and emails. We’d hate to see anyone in our community hurt by these people.
Here’s a quick guide to protect yourself from scammers and phishers when interacting with the LOBSTR team:
1. The LOBSTR | Ultra Stellar team will NEVER ask you for your private keys. We will NEVER ask you to deposit funds to any wallet address.
2. Our only official Twitter account is https://twitter.com/lobstr.
3. Our only official Telegram channel for LOBSTR is https://t.me/LOBSTRnews. Note that we don’t offer support through Telegram.
4. To get additional information on LOBSTR updates and tips on interaction with Stellar Network, follow our blog on Medium https://lobstrco.medium.com/.

- In order not to be misled by scammers, please DON'T follow suspicious links, DON’T provide your secret key or any other information to dubious third-party services, and NEVER enter your private keys on any untrusted websites, always carefully check the browser URL.
- Store all your private information (passwords, LOBSTR wallet and LOBSTR Vault Recovery phrases, Secret keys) in a safe place. Never share it with anyone. It must be kept safe like your other valuables. It must not be stored in any electronic or digital form. Do not email or screenshot your private keys. Write them down on a piece of paper or print them using a secure printer.
- Do your own research before sending funds to other accounts over the network. Support team will never ask you to deposit funds to any wallet address.
- If you've already transferred the funds to a scammer's account, we wouldn't be able to refund/revert or cancel the transaction due to the irreversible nature of cryptocurrency transactions.
- Be careful when adding or buying unverified assets in LOBSTR. We recommend only using the LOBSTR Curated and Featured (Top assets) list.
- Asset listings in the LOBSTR wallet are not endorsements. LOBSTR is a software client only and has no control over the development, operation, management, marketing, or any other activity of any of the assets/tokens that are issued on the Stellar network.
Note: LOBSTR is not a custodian of your Stellar Lumens (XLM) or any other crypto assets issued on the Stellar Network. We do not have access to your funds, tokens, crypto assets, secret keys, recovery phrases, or account passwords.
Please stay safe.
