I just opened a Stellar account to take advantage of the staking marathon. I can't seem to find details on it. I moved 100 xlm to this account to test it. Do the Lumens I own all have to be in this account to make them work to get free lumens from the marathon? I have quite a bit.



You are being scammed by an email-phishing attempt. There is no such thing as a Community Staking Marathon. Please look at email sender and you will see it is not an official email from Stellar.org.



  • Thank you. I moved too quickly, they got me. – Pandu- Jun 27 '20 at 11:01
  • Yep, it was a scam. Caught me too. – Ituser Jun 30 '20 at 1:54

same here the blog and account viewer looked very much the same as the real account viewer. Good job by the scammer.

I accessed the account I created on the fake account viewer with a HW Wallet on the real account viewer but I am still unable to send back my funds. I get an error.

Any clues as to why the operation fails

Thank you
