@mbirdtraining it’s just stupid Impersonator He gets banned :rage:

@nakedwinnie we have a scammer?

Hey @mbirdtraining, welcome to the MetaMask community! :fox_face:

Sorry about the scam responses, @Bobby thank you for flagging! The account has been deleted.

The insufficient funds error is most likely caused by not having enough tokens in your wallet to pay for the gas fees. Here is more information on our Knowledge Base:


So, I have 0.04 WETH in opensea, 0.0019 ETH in metamask wallet .
I want to buy something with 0.01 WETH in opensea. The gas fee should be in metamask?
Also, it says > Approved amount:

1.157920… WETH
Why I need 1.15792089… WETH ??

I also got this email:

Yes, estimated gas fees are displayed on MetaMask.

Please ignore the scam email. You can immediately tell it is a scam because it ends in The MetaMask team will also NEVER ask for your Secret Recovery Phrase.
