Beware of scammers taking advantage of SALAD situation.

The Big Mistake

I had everything on an hardware encrypted flash key. The key didn't accept the correct PIN multiple times, leading to a reset and consequent deletion of all files.

No Backup of Backup

I was waiting for a 2nd hardware encrypted flash key from a different brand to move the files and double the backup. It was late in the mail and I rushed things. Bad timing.

Would've Happened Anyway?

They old key didn't accept the correct PIN in the past already. Inserting the correct PIN and the key not unlocking, but it usually took a couple of tries. This time I went too far cause of that.

Community Respose

Cardano Community response was incredible. I'm blessed and grateful for it all. Fundraising initiatives and donations to help me get back on my feet. I'm honored to be part of this family.
