Real testimonials from cheated clients

Our customers tell us that alleged employees of “Crypto.com” or “Blockchain”, “Binance” etc. have contacted them and claim to have found and secured the alleged credit or investment they thought was lost.

For example, the email from a purported Crypto.com “advisor” reads:

We have the full amount of 4.33 BTC under your name Crypto.com received/found/secured. However, no amount can be transferred to your BTC wallet from Crypto.com be added as you have to pay the specified fees for three more transactions

Therefore, you bet on the extra amount, and the much-needed payments are taken away. Anything left over will of course be refunded to your bank. These are transaction fees that must be paid in advance to get the above amount. Transaction fees are typically between 7% and 10%. Finally, put 10% of the total amount on your Crypto.comaccount that is prepaid for transaction fees.”
