  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 .

  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

  23. Gcxcrypto.co
    Is a scam just like the rest of these. I’m on a fixed low income of 900 per month. I begged, borrowed ,and pawned my wayup and lost approx 12k , that is more than I get in a whole year. Now in debt badly, credits going down the toilet and ut wasntbthat great to begin with but I was trying to make it better, I owe friends, pawn shop, Ace loans, and not to mention all my bills because when I lost the first 10k approx , I then took my whole months income, didn’t pay my bills and invested it last month to gain it back yo pay my debts and bills up….but it too was lost. I can’t believe myself anymore when I believed so much in this being real, then it turned out to be a scam. How then can I possibly ever trust myself that what I believe and trust was ever real or ever will be real?
    I’m so screwed. These guys are a whole new kind of low.. and if there be a special place in hell for those who steal from the already poor, then I wouldn’t lose sleep if they went there.

  24. I was introduced to Forex by a friend, when I contacted his mentor Eseika Comilyay she assured me that this was legit and when I asked her about the risk she said there wasn’t really any risk but she did not tell me all the fees and upgrade charges that would asked for. She had me to download swifthubtrad.com, and Whatsapp, so did. When I was confronted about the fees from Swifthubtrade (Nathan) and asked her why she didn’t tell me about the fees she replied, “my bad.”
    After I invested $600, my balance was $10,700. The she told me to deposit$850 more and that would be added to my balance which made it $19,700. When I tried to make a withdrawal, I got a message that I needed to upgrade my account. So, I contacted her, and she told me to contact Swifthubtrade. So, I did and started talking to Nathan. He informed me that I needed to upgrade my account there were several ones, so I decided to do the silver account which was cheaper $1,2050. I explained to Nathan that I would have to make the payment he next day(Tuesday) because I could not get to the bank until then. He said,”ok”. So on Tuesday I make the payment for the silver account. Then when I asked what my pin was so I could make a withdrawal he tells me that I paid my upgrade fee to late, and it was going got be a $700 late fee. I told him f…that. This was a scam and I was not going to give them anymore money. He assures me this was not a scam. So they agreed to let me pay $350, and when I made my withdrawal I would pay the rest. So I did, when I tried to make a withdrawal I got a message that I needed to pay the rest of my commission fee and make a 10% deposit of $3460..
    I was never informed about any late fees, commission fees, 10% deposit.
    I told Nathan I had never traded before and was new at all this. His reply was sorry I never told you before
