OKEx phishing app found on Apple App Store in China. This incident is reported by Anndy Lian on Twitter. Anndy has mentioned that the community member has lost $55k.

The phishing app connects you to their wallet and upon transferring the cryptocurrencies. Upon doing so, you can only trade and minimum leverage is 125% and the maximum is 500%. Withdrawal is only allowed trade and there is a certain ratio that you can withdraw. This seems like phishing and force trade and “gamble” app.
