Have you lost money to Bitcoin Scam? If so how much?
« on: April 21, 2020, 06:10:50 PM »
I was a victim of Bitcoin fraud a year ago.
I got connected to the broker through a friend on LinkedIn by name Wade Sherry who claims to be a pharmacy specialist working for a US company for about 8 years with 500+ followers on LinkedIn.

I contacted David and told him about my interest of joining the investment scheme and he sent me the brochure as in the WhatsApp conversation.

The broker was responsible for the trading I only receive the profits. After 4 consecutive deposits and withdrawal of about $200, I was told to upgrade my account and after the upgrade I deposited $5k.

After some weeks I was told that my investment has yielded $52k but I needed to pay 20% withdrawal charges. I struggled to raise $5k after 2 months with the promise that I will be able to withdraw half of the profits $26k. On completion of the withdrawal charges I got blocked by the broker and after some days the LinkedIn contact removed its account.

I was devastated for weeks, i really felt ashamed of myself. I couldn’t believe how stupid i was to allow myself get conned. I went to the police the next day in company of my friend Madison, She explained all that happened to the police chief. We wrote a statement and provided receipts and every details of transaction.

Weeks passed, month passed and no useful information from the police, so i did my own little research and found a Bitcoin forensic and Recovery agency online. I provided them with receipts and every details of transactions.

The Recovery agent then explained and broke down how this scam works. He educated me on this trick, so i can also educate others.
Firstly, this is some kind of old trick where a social media account of an individual is hacked. Once they get access to it,they reach out to all contacts/friends In the account telling them about some money making scheme they should invest in,it used to be the lotto scam, but now modified to Bitcoin scam..It's quiet easy following through since you feel you talking with a friend and not an impostor. They Account later gets taken down after lots of reports of scam activities, but before then many would have fallen victim...so in this case "Wade Sherry" was also likely a victim of hacked account..

With the details i provided, They worked on finding out David Oliver information,get to know more about like his contact address and any other information they can use to fish him out, file a case against him and work on getting my money back.

I kept getting daily reports and progress. Three weeks later, i got a mail from them and they have been able to trace him through his bitcoin address. They spoke of applying brute force decryption service in hacking his wallet and some other terms which i could not understand. After weeks of investigation, to my upmost surprise, i was able to get my coins back. I did not know how they did it but i was very ecstatic and paid them there fees.

If you have ever been a victim of Crypto scam, there is hope on the horizon. You can google Bitechrecovery they helped me get back my coins

It has been hard losing money to Binary Options and Cryptocurrency Trading, although my money has now been recovered thanks to a Recovery Pro. You can reach me to share my experience. Maggiealder12__gmaiI__com
