There is a number of scams common in the crypto world. We addressed some of them in our article: https://support.polkastarter.com/article/35-how-to-avoid-crypto-scams-best-practices-to-protect-yourself.
Unfortunately, if your wallet gets compromised, there isn't anything we can do to retrieve your funds. There is no way to reverse or cancel the transaction on the blockchain. Vested allocations and staked tokens are locked in the smart contracts and can only be sent to your original wallet address. Our smart contracts are fully decentralized, and we can't move funds locked in them.
You can try to transfer the funds to the new wallet right after withdrawing them. Changing the wallet for future project participation is recommended to avoid further loss.
