A little scared here regarding a wallet i just refound

So I had a wallet with aes.json encryption that i decrypted on [blockchain.com](https://blockchain.com). I haven’t moved any of the funds yet from that wallet. People are saying this is a scam company. How do I get my funds out of there quickly? I pretty sure this was always a blockchain wallet

  1. Blockchain has serious security flaws, so you want to move your coins off of there as quickly as possible.

    In the best situation, you have your private key written somewhere, in which case you can use it to recover your coins using Electrum and move them from there, instead of trying to work through Blockchain.com.

    If you have to log on to blockchain to recover, do not sign up for 2FA – there’s a big security flaw there somewhere. Just get in and move the coins asap.

  2. AFAIK [blockchain.com](https://blockchain.com) is not a scam company (I know people who work there). It has been around for a long time, and is a legacy block explorer for the bitcoin blockchain. That said, if you don’t own the keys to your coins, you SHOULD move them somewhere safer, to a non-custodial wallet. Blockchain could get hacked and you could lose your funds

  3. We have a lot of newcomers entering the Bitcoin space recently who are exploring different exchanges and such. Some users are developing a habit of asking if various random websites some complete stranger PM’d them is a scam or not. Sometimes these sites are completely unrelated to Bitcoin. This is not the purpose of r/Bitcoin.

    * Do not trust unsolicited messages telling you to check out some shady website.
    * Do not trust Discord randos telling you that you won a prize.
    * Do not trust anyone who promises guaranteed profits.
    * Do not trust website with unpronounceable domain names
    * Do not trust anyone claiming to give away free Bitcoin. (YouTube, Twitter, Discord)
    * Do not trust anyone claiming they will double however much Bitcoin you send them.
    * Do not trust ‘pretty girls’ on Tinder telling you about new investment opportunities.
    * **If you have to ask** if some sketchy website or special offer is a scam, **then it probably is.**

    You have to learn to think for yourselves. Recognize that there are many tricksters out there who will go to great lengths to separate you from your Bitcoin. Use your head and stay safe. If you send your Bitcoin to a scammer, it’s gone forever. There are no refunds!
