Hi everyone, I'm doing my best to turn a stupid mistake into a chance to prevent more people from making the same one.

I stumbled across SafeTrader.io, a site which appears (at least to me at the time) to be an extension of LocalBitcoins.com which provides additional information on users before you go ahead with a trade. I stupidly followed the instructions, created a bookmark (which turned out to be a line of javascript), and clicked on it once I was back in my LocalBitcoins account.

Clicking on it started to execute an app which asked for my verification code to authorize the install. This is obviously where I screwed up, and against my better judgement, and provided the code. My coins left faster than I could realize what was going on.

Like I said, hopefully this helps discredit the site and hopefully this can help spread the word to avoid the site. I put a post up on LocalBitcoins as there really isn't much info on their forums and nothing in their help section about that site.

While I totally expect to face the internet's wrath from this post, remember losing my bitcoins should be punishment enough!
