No, it is a scam. WalletConnect will never ask for your private key or wallet seed words. The only legitimate WalletConnect website is walletconnect.com.
Report it to a SafeBrowsing phishing service and web browsers will blacklist the domain.
We will never contact you offering support. Anyone sending you a private message offering support is likely a scammer.
We feel your pain! As a rule you should never give your private key or wallet seed words to anyone. WalletConnect apps do not ask them. Nobody associated with WalletConnect will ask for them. If you have shared your private key or seed words you will lose everything in your wallet.
If you entered your private key or seed words into a scam website, we suggest you do the following: As soon as possible, transfer your assets to a new wallet. Do not use the old wallet again since it is now compromised. Speed is important, because once the scammers have your key or seed they will try to transfer them immediately.
If your assets have already been transferred out of your wallet, there is little you can do. If you lost a large amount of crypto (>$USD 500k) you may try Reclaim Crypto (however, we do not endorse them and are not affiliated)
