Identify the cause of the problem
By regularly monitoring the risk score of your address, you can assume that the deterioration in the indicator is associated with the last transaction with a certain counterparty or that your address was included in databases associated with illegal activity.
It is worth noting: when analyzing transactions, check both the senders and recipients of your funds.
There is a common myth that if you receive “dirty” funds, you should return them. This approach works for exchanges that create individual deposit addresses for each client, but does not work for regular crypto addresses. Returning such funds will only worsen the situation. Two-way communication with a suspicious or dirty asset will significantly worsen the risk score of your address.
Most analytical tools are based on ML algorithms, which provide for risk score deterioration when interacting with high-risk addresses or dubious cryptocurrency. The more such interactions, the worse the risk score. Why don't service providers make exceptions for such transactions? The answer is simple: scammers make mistakes too, sometimes accidentally linking their anonymous addresses with those by which they can be identified.
Consider an analogy: a robber stole money from a bank and transferred 10,000 to you. Later you return these funds. Will this return protect you from questions from law enforcement? Hardly. You will still have to explain the reasons for such transactions.
