Thank you for the additional information. Your first post mentioned “a site posing as Merchant Token using Brave Browser to post advert,” which had me concerned. Did you see a Brave Ad encouraging people to visit this URL? Or was the URL only found in a Telegram channel?

Hi when I clicked on the URL in telegram post I was redirected to the brave browser, Regards John

I’ll tell you a secret: When you click a link in third-party applications, the default Browser always opens.
If money was stolen from you because you opened a link, this does not mean that the browser is to blame.
