@durov @telegram my TG account (same handle as my Twitter) was compromised & the hacker is scamming your users through my social network.

My personal situation is “okay” (I'd like my identity back), but I feel worse for the people getting tricked into irreversible losses of $$.
@durov @telegram @durov @telegram a few friends & I have been working since yesterday to shut the account down - unfortunately, your UI appears to have no solution once the account is compromised, and no TG support can be found.

Please have one of your staff DM me through Twitter to resolve.
@durov @telegram As a side note, @telegram is marketed as a secure app, but does not present a process to resolve account compromises.

Given the # of crypto folks on your platform + the increasing rate of TG compromises, I would recommend implementing a compromised account recovery process 🙏
