I learned a hard lesson: never trust your finances with someone you have never met. I had a rough childhood, living with my mom in a trailer. I was a high school dropout because my mom had a serious health issue.
I have been working since I was 11, doing various odd jobs. Now in my 20s, I was working as a construction worker. Although the streets had made me smart, they never made me financially savvy. Mom’s health was deteriorating, and I needed fast cash.
I was with my boys and had heard about “Bitcoin, the new gold of the century” a couple of times. I strongly believed, “What you don’t see, you don’t own.” So I never thought that I should invest in it.
I had to shift to the city as Mummy required vital medical attention. I was desperate to make money, and although my boys helped a lot, I thought I was depending on them very heavily.
It was in the city hospital when my mom was undergoing some tests the doctors recommended. I was all alone scrolling on my mobile when I received a text. It had to do something with Bitcoin.
I was initially hesitant and heard my guts cry, “James, don’t do it!”
Mom’s treatment had cost me an arm and a leg, and these costs would increase further.
I called the number mentioned in the text.
My call was immediately answered. The first thing the person on the other end asked was if I knew anything about Bitcoin. I said I had heard of it many times but never really grasped the idea of it. Charle, or whatever his real name was, started asking personal questions, which I thought was odd; my guts were still reminding me that this was a bad call.
However, I answered all his questions, and he assured me that my financial security was in good hands.
He was demanding $10,000 to start the investment in Bitcoin. I lied and thought that it could be a scam, so I answered that I had $500 at the moment. I could hear his disappointment, but he said, “Fair enough. We will start small.”
He instructed me on how to open up an account on a trading account that he had recommended and asked if I knew anything about trading, and I answered “No.”
After downloading the trading app on my mobile, he instructed me on how to open an account. And the money that I had wire-transferred was reflected on the trading platform.
Should have heard my “GUTS!”
The year had just begun, and just two weeks after I opened up the account, I saw my Bitcoins grow. I was more fixated on watching my money grow and gave little attention to my mom’s health. As I saw Bitcoin appreciate, I was keen on investing more. I thought it was not a bad idea.
I called Charles immediately and wire-transferred $20,000. I was happy with my decision, as the trading account said I had $70,000.
Charles said that his investment scheme was working for me and asked if I could manage to invest more money in Bitcoin. I was worried that I could have trouble paying off Mum’s medical bills, but Charles managed to convince me that at the end of the year, I would be rolling in money and should do as he had suggested.
I was so convinced that I applied for $100,000 and wire-transferred the entire amount to Charles.
It was June when Mom’s health started to deteriorate at a faster pace. I required money and thought that I should go and take some money off my trading account; after all, I was doing it for Mum, and now the trading account showed more than $250,000 in it.
I did not know how to withdraw the money from the app, so I called Charles regarding it. He insisted that I should make other arrangements to pay off Mom’s medical bill and should also consider investing more in Bitcoin.
It was then that I realized that I was being conned by a con artist. A cold shiver went through my spine, and I said I wanted to withdraw all the money immediately. I was hoping that he would call the relevant department and help withdraw all the money.
I waited for two days and did not receive any calls from Charles. I tried calling him up, and he answered once, but he blocked my number after I called him the second time.
I was totally devastated, and I did not know what to do. I asked my boys about it, and they were shocked to learn that they had not been informed about my Bitcoin adventure. They said that had I approached them, they would have gladly helped. However, they did say not to lose any hope, as there were several crypto recovery firms.
This time I searched for a crypto recovery firm and researched before choosing Financial Scams Recovery.
My boys once again helped me out, not only providing financial support but also providing a solution to recover my lost funds.
The Recovery Process
When I approached Mike, he was quite sympathetic toward my mom’s health and said that scammers are known to prey on vulnerable and desperate victims. He asked me to give a detailed description of the entire scam, and for a moment I thought I was sitting in front of a detective. My guts screamed again, but now they said, “Go ahead, James! I think they got you covered.”
After recounting the entire episode, they asked if Charles, aka the scammer, had shared any charts or graphs regarding the so-called profits that I had made. I gave him everything that was asked of me.
After all the details were shared, I hung up the phone and waited for almost 6 months. During the initial days after appointing them to take care of my case, I used to call them regularly, but since there was no progress, I said okay. He assured me that everything would be fine.
I started taking less and less interest as I thought that I was being duped again. It was when Mike called me and said that it takes time to hunt for the missing breadcrumbs. It is as good as searching for a needle in a haystack.
Finally, I got to hear what I wanted.
These experts at Financial Scams Recovery managed to recover my entire fund; through them, I learned that the scammer was using a rigged crypto trading platform, thus inflating my profits when I was making a loss.
Mike also suggested, that if you feel something is a miss, then it’s probably good to let go of it. And anyone suggesting taking a dive into your emergency kitty and using it for investing, well it’s a sure sign of a potential scam.
They also pointed out how to spot a potential scammer with a shady investment scheme. Although my mom is not doing any good, I guess old age is finally catching up with her. I just wish they could fix my mom, as they helped me stitch my wallet.
I do know that investing in Bitcoin is a risky business, but my boys surely are helping me to trade in the crypto market. They have also shown me how to choose good cryptos.
