Scammed? What to do!

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

⚠️ 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.

  6. There was an ad related to Elon Musk’s Quantum AI trading platform which mentioned only for non UK citizens . This is highforecast.com . Unfortunately I happened to click it and made an investment of 250 dollars into ally . Was asked to invest a further 2000 USD which I did . The profit shown as 4000 USD in 10 days and manager told me highly volatile week of trading taking the total to 6000 USD . Upon request for withdrawal was asked to initiate a mirror transaction of 6000 USD. Was very hesitant but he sounded very convincing mentioning it was required for first transaction . Was asked to open Revolut account to buy Crypto . Installed remote application AnyDesk and he guided me to do a transfer from my bank account to to Binance to make the payment in equivalent BTC .2 days later get a call saying I have to pay taxes as this company is based in Uk and I could show taxes paid at time of tax filing in Australia . Was sent a letter with letterhead of HM Revenue and Customs for 2488 USD which he made said needs to be paid on ERC20 network. Someone claiming to be from their finance department contacted me saying fund manager did not pay taxes properly resulting that amount as a credit to my trading account and I was asked to pay up taxes same procedure . I panicked and did it thinking it’s all legit . Recently get a call saying since Binance suspending AUD withdrawals they have put in a credit of 7000 usd which I need to mirror if not would be caught up in AML issues and not allowed to leave country . When I said not possible was threatened with AML consequences. My money is gone for sure but this is the modus operandi of these fraudsters .

  9. oceanprotrader seams to be a scam… promise very high margins but you have to pay a high “commission” to withdraw your funds, but after paying the commission they still don’t allow you to withdraw. Avoid!

  10. I was added to a forex trading group on whatsapp by a person named Melanie led by a Mr. Jacobs there were approximately 177 in the group I was asked by Melanie to
    get involved with the various trading plans created by Mr. Jacobs so i wired money to Osmosis FX
    under the direction of Melanie. On July 20, we were told that we could withdraw funds but there would be a 10% tax fee but never was it mentioned that the fee would have to be paid upfront.
    My tax fee was 26,579.00. There is no way i can afford that fee as i have depleted my saving to take advantage of the profits from trading with Mr. Jacobs. I have checked their website FAQs and read policies and nowhere it says anything about this upfront tax fee in order to withdraw. I feel that I’ve been scammed and am asking for your assistance in getting my fund returned to me. Thanks
