I’ve banned that user, they are a scammer. If you sent any seed phrases or private keys - please immediately move your coins to a different wallet.

Basically the best solution would be to just delete your blocks/ folder in the Litecoin Data Directory (search this forum to find the where it is for your OS). Then restarting will force a resync, which fixes a corrupt block data.

If you’re a regular user, you should probably be using a light wallet like Electrum-LTC (only download from or Litewallet if you’re on mobile. These wallets are much faster and easier for the average person to use, and you wouldn’t have to worry with all this blocks nonsense.
