How to spot a Crypto Scam?


How to avoid Crypto Scam?

1️⃣ If you see any of these following domains: .cc, .xyz, .pro, .online and other unusual domains, pay attention.

2️⃣ If you have a look at the terms and conditions of those platforms (some don’t have them at all), you will notice that their conditions don’t comply with the securities act of 1933-1934. Welcome to the schemes from the wild-wild Crypto space. No regulatory authority behind the platform? (depending on the location of the platform) RUN and don’t look back because this is a scam.

3️⃣ Be wary of any investment opportunity that promises high returns with little risk. These are likely scams. “If something seems too good to be true, it probably is”. If you notice that the platform does not have a solid use case which is meant to solve a real-world problem but promise high returns – beware, it is a scam.

Let us say you want to register a business in Singapore, you will have to contact the regulatory authority “ACRA”. If the “business” is nothing but a ponzi-scheme, ACRA will dismiss it.

In case a platform claims to be regulated, contact the according regulator (of the country) and ask if the platform which claims to be registered is related to the business number it was registered under.

Scammed? What to do!

1️⃣ Collect evidence by taking screen shots of all trades, messages and communications, money transfer addresses, their websites, etc.

2️⃣ If you used a bank card to make a payment to a scammer, contact your bank immediately. Tell them that you used this card to make a payment to the scammer and ask if they can refund your money trough a Chargeback process.

3️⃣ You can report the company/person who scammed you by contacting us. We will make a review and expose the crooks. May warn potential victims.

⚠️ Reminder: If you deposited your funds on a platform and they ask you to pay a “fee” or “tax” in order to withdraw your funds do not pay anything! It’s a trick to steal more funds from you.

      1. What I don’t understand about this situations is why they can’t take the funds out of the available funds if they’re trying to tax you or tax us on what we already have there why can’t you just take the tax out of what’s there and give us the balance I have a similar situation at LAtokenex where they want me to deposit $500 in order to withdraw my 2044.00 in winnings or profits.. and the kicker in my case is and deposited $1,400 and was able to withdraw all that back but I’m nearly about this new thing they’re asking why can’t they just take the $500 out of the 2000 and just give me the balance ?

  7. I was scammed by CoinOne in the Fall of 2022 and Spring of 2023. They wanted payment for “special fees” and when I tried to withdraw my money they wanted wire transfer fees to me. The individual says his name was Lin Liebo and even sent an ID card. He was using a hacked account of a young lady and joked at the end saying “you will never catch me”. Please help me stop this criminal and land him in jail for the rest of his life.

  8. I got a message on my phone from phone no. +1(213) 340 -4255 on September 2023, and by mistake I replied then after she started talking with me on a telegram chatting app and after a few days.
    She started talking about crypto investment and forcing me to start investment on crypto and do the trading,
    She introduced herself to me as a divorcee and her name is Ella and her parents live in Japan, father belongs to Ukraine and mother is Japanese.
    After a few days she started to invest money in crypto. I started with little and during one or two transactions she showed me that your money rises, and I felt greedy and did some wire transfer from my bank and now she was asking me to increase your principal to gain more profit. She forced me to take the loan I did and then after they locked all my money in the app and asked me to pay the loan first in coins (USDT) and then we will release your funds. Now I don’t have any more money and I have doubts that they want to steal some more money from me. She was asking me to use the external resources to pay the loan, but my coins already exist in their app then why they are asking me to buy more coins for the loan they can use those and allow me to take the balance from their app., but they blocked my account asking me to buy more coins which raises the alarm in my mind. Ecxx-Web company says if the loan is not returned they will charge daily 5% I don’t know whether this is fake or real. I would need help here.
    I have plenty of screenshots she has shared with me and always she talked about an uncle and couldn’t disclose any identity about him.
    Similar kind of messaging started in March-April 2022 and was proposing the same cryptocurrency investment and sharing her profit screenshots.
    She forced me to take a loan (BOA) of 50 USDT in the ECXX app and without any proper documentation they approved and sent me an email.
    I contacted Bank of America by an email regarding such a loan and then they replied back that they don’t deal with any such kind of loan.
    She also deposited some coins in ECXX account to build the trust.
    Initially she gave me app EachangEXCC to install and after few days ask me to install app from link
    I did research and found that this is fraud trading site

  9. We have invested 100,000 in CSTTO.CO under the tutelage of a Professor Paul Huffman, and our account has grown exponentially in the last three weeks with daily trades. Yesterday and today no trades and today no return call. We are retired, thank goodness my husband only invested a portion of his retirement, but still is very unfortunate if it is lost. The professor and the professor’s assistant “Jennifer” constantly encouraged my husband to keep investing and to invest more, almost like a used car salesman. Hopefully we can get help to recoup some or all the lost funds.

  10. I fund in website and now that person who contact me, they not online and my 25000usd around lost still I login there my website there is showing my amount but I cannot withdraw and that person also not reply me anymore ask so many time give back my amount I don’t have extra… only what I invest give back if they want something charge take it please give back but steal same issue.

  11. I invested in Forex with digital prime trading with some guy named Thomas Paulo. I’m now thinking the person that gave me the info on FB, page may have been hacked. I sent total $200 thru my cash app. I do have screen shots. The website I listed below. This guy stated that taxes would be paid out of their 20%. And like what I have read, he asked that I send a fee in order to obtain the so called money earned. Once this happened, I blocked him.

  12. Do you know anything about It’s an online “work” site where you have to have a $100 balance to be able to perform more tasks to make more money. The “tasks” are to click on something, click again to upgrade the optimization of an app.
    I don’t see the need to keep a balance to pay for working. Do you have any information on this company? It’s part of Mask.

  14. A scammer in Southeast Asia let me download the trust wallet, then logged into for AI arbitrage fraud, when I suggested that there was no money to continue depositing, she contacted online support with all kinds of questions to get me to deposit more money, until I couldn’t come up with any new money to pay for it, all her love for me disappeared. From then on, she no longer chats with me every day, and won’t even care about me. On the surface, she loves me very much, but in fact she loves my money even more, I just need to have money to top up, she will be very happy, and even in the case that I can’t take out so much money, she offered to help me with a part of the money, which makes me very touched, but all this is just a scam orchestrated for the sake of my money, please remember one thing, unless you are real! Meet, and then a large amount of money to invest, can not meet the excuse is the liar orchestrated!
