I stupidly sent $200 in bitcoin to 1 of those high yield investment scams…well ,I’m assuming it’s a scam….says $50 min deposit,but when I deposited it showed in my account,then my ‘earnings’ showed there too just like they said they would,but when I tried to withdraw some of it,nothing happened.
I wanted to reinvest the majority of it but couldn’t do that either.i emailed them,they replied telling me I had to make another deposit of the same amount to activate the system and then I can withdraw.having to to redeposit was NOT mentioned on the site at all…so I guess I got scammed…surely if it was legit it would have stated on the site that u need to redeposit??’
Big newbie f*** up…my bad ???? I can still access my account….it’s still showing my $200 plus my alleged earnings….is there any way at all of getting my deposit back? Not sure if I’m allowed to put the name of the site/company so I won’t unless u say it’s ok ????
Hey Helen, very sorry to hear about this.
Unfortunately Bitcoin is like cash – once you give it out it doesn’t belong to you anymore and there’s no way to retrieve it. Feel free to mention the company name here. Also, next time I suggest reading this post in order to avoid using scam sites:
Let me know if there’s anything else I can do to help.
Let me tell you a saying.
“Bears get rich. Bulls get rich. Pigs get poor.”
A bear is someone who believes the market will do poorly. They invest in bonds, safe stocks and find ways to bet against the market. They make money because they play it safe.
Bulls are optimist. They invest in stocks and believe in them. They notice that the market goes up and down so they buy stock they believe in and stick it out. Inevitably the market goes down and then it picks back up. Bulls get rich because the market has an upward trend.
A pig is an emotional, wannabe opportunist. They see that the market is doing well so they buy. The market starts to do bad so they panic and sell. The objective to investing is buying low and selling high. Pigs do the opposite they buy high and sell low.
Bit Coin is a market for bulls. If you don’t understand it and believe in it why are you buying it!? If you are a bear stay out of this market; it’s too new.
So here is my advice if you are a bear get out and stay out. Or be a bull and stay in. As a matter of fact this is a great time to purchase bit coin! Sell now and curse yourself when it goes back up in price.
Thank u…yeh i figured that was the case…just so mad at myself for being so dumb ???? was hoping there was something I could threaten them with,like some kind of watchdog organisation that could step in and investigate or something but I guess that’s impossible to do…ah well,learned my lesson the hard way ????thank u Ofir for taking the time to reply ???? I’ve learned a lot from this site thank u ???? oh yeh,the name of the company is PROBTC.LIMITED ????

Hourtrust.com SCAM ALERT
Recently joined Hourtrust. after 24 hours when I want to make a withdrawal, the withdrawal is pending now for 3 days. do not invest with Hourtrust. They are SCAM. Yes as mentioned above they ask you to reinvesr the same amount again to release the full funds.
Also dont believe all HYIP monitor sites. They get a commission so they will always show a HYIP program as paying.
Guys , I made lot of mistakes in mining companies when I started in Crypto investments in beginning of 2017..

I stupidly believed the scammer behind a craigslist post, claiming to be able to hack phones and recover deleted voicemails. This person then proceeded to threaten me so I caved and sent them $200 in bitcoin. As soon as they received the transfer, they went into radio silence. I want my funds back and I want to make them pay!
STOLEN ME A LOT NOW I GOING POLICE FOR REPORT THEM WARNING THIS SITE:
