Fake Project Scam

1

Last month, a friend introduced me to a cryptocurrency campaign. The campaign is called USDC's regular interest rate activity, which is being held in conjunction with circle and kyber network. It is a big company name, and after I joined, I also checked with the customer support on the campaign's website, and they said that it is indeed a regular interest rate activity organized by circle and kyber network in cooperation with each other. In fact, I received daily deposits with interest rates as high as 2.2%, and this continued for more than a week, and my friend for almost a month, and I was completely convinced that it was genuine. Next, when he learned that there was a fixed deposit activity in which the interest rate was further multiplied by 3 to 5 times, he and his friend wanted to participate. However, as soon as I requested it, all the wallets were transferred without my permission, even though I had not done any deposit process. At that point I felt a little suspicious, but I was told that I could not withdraw my time deposit for 30 days and that there would be a fine of 3000 USDC if I quit. I had no choice but to give up, and the other day, two weeks after that, I was informed that the fixed deposit had reached a certain number of participants and was closed. All users were informed that the money would be withdrawn within 24 hours, but when I checked with the customer center, they told me that my wallet account was security blocked due to the high amount of money deposited. They then told me that I needed to deposit 18% of my assets in order to be verified. I quickly realized that this was a common scam pattern, and while I did not deposit any additional funds, there was no way to get my initial USDC deposit back. My friend and I are wondering if there is any way to solve this problem, as together we have stolen almost 80000 USDC.

Impersonation Scam

1

I received a phone call from someone claiming to be an employee of Ledger, a well-known company for cryptocurrency hardware wallets. This person informed me that a suspicious login attempt had been detected on my wallet from Germany. They knew my name, surname, phone number, and email address. The person asked if it was me who had made this connection. When I said no, they asked if I had used a VPN, which might have explained the connection from Germany. After I answered no, they advised me to secure my wallet by transferring my cryptocurrencies to TrustWallet, and then back to my Ledger wallet. They directed me to a legitimate link on the Ledger website explaining how to secure cryptocurrencies via TrustWallet. They sent an email to my laposte.net address with the words to note down to create the TrustWallet account. When I didn't receive this email, I provided my Gmail address, which I did receive. They asked me to write down the words on a sheet of paper and delete the email, including from the trash, to prevent any potential hacker from retrieving these codes. Once the TrustWallet account was created, they assisted me in transferring all my cryptocurrencies from my Kraken and MetaMask accounts to this TrustWallet account. During the transfer, gas fees were applied. The scammer asked me to note the fees for a double-check during the insurance reimbursement. They also advised me to choose the fast transfer option, even though it was more expensive. At each step, they claimed to be handling another case simultaneously and put me on hold, but they remained available quickly if needed. Once the transfers were completed, they informed me that the Bitcoin transfer would take about 6 minutes and that they would call me back in 15 minutes to verify that everything had been transferred. After 20-30 minutes without hearing back, I checked the TrustWallet app and noticed that 6000 euros were missing. Upon reviewing the transaction history, I discovered unauthorized outgoing transfers, revealing that I had just been scammed. The call came from a number starting with 09. About every 15 minutes, the conversation would cut off, and they would call me back from another number also starting with 09, claiming that these were highly secure and encrypted lines, justifying the frequent interruptions.

Fake Returns Scam

1

The website was introduced by to me by an individual for high benefit return in crypto investment, the website appeared to me as being a little dodgy. But I transferred €50 for a test and invested in Ethereum. I then withdraw €56, which made me believe the website being a legitimate for investment, and with continuous persuasions from the individual I invested further €1463.00. The individual introducing this website was an online friend, who claimed to be residing in Manchester UK, we were in a regular communication with several video calls as well as healthy conversation and exchanging opinion regularly. This person has completely disappeared without any communication, I then attempt to withdraw the money I had invested, unfortunately I have been prevented from any withdrawal. I have now been asked by their “Customer Services” to invested further funds and that they would later release the fund I have invested. All the funds I have transferred are from my account on the Trust Wallet. I can provide proof of all my claim. Looking forward to hearing from you. Regards

Phishing Scam

I was trying to get help getting my metamask account fixed so I could claim my lion airdrop. I was directed to go to athene network on x and comments were made for me to send and email to metamaskhelpdesk.assist@gmail.com requesting help. I did and i received an email to go to https://meta-restore-platform.webflow.io that I needed to reset my wallet. I went to the website and it looked legitimate. It asked me to enter my pass key code. I did and nothing happened. I wrote back and they told me it was stuck in the server and as soon as I add $200 I would get everything back. that is when i knew I had been scammed. I contacted metamask in their app and filed a report. It is very hard to get help because there is no customer support system except for contacting them through social media.

Fake Returns Scam

1

In mid-November, a friend I have trusted for over 15 years shared with me about her success in cryptowallet on the MetaMask platform. She kept asking me to fund the wallet that I set up with her guidance (never gave her the seed phrase, but shared screenshots of various transactions). She indicated she has a client who is an angel investor and she set up trades with several friends and also her brother. After my initial investment of about $11K, she took me through a trade and I could see profit. I had known her many years and trusted her so I thought all was good. I did a total of 4 trades with her on my USDT wallet - for each trade she charged a total of 30% of the trade. Throughout the 6 weeks, she kept asking me to fund the wallet more and more. Because it seemed to be going well, and because I trusted her, I did invest additional funds into the wallet (a total of about 70K). On 12/24/2023 when my USDT wallet was wiped, it was then worth about $105,258 due to the trades. The message I received from customer support was that my Web3 wallet has been autopledged to the Ethereum public company as part of their "Christmas Carnival Pledge Event". There was no prior notice that the wallet would be autopledged. They stated that I would need to invest another $65,000 USDT into the account. They stated that if I did not do so within 7 working days, I will face 5% of the pledged funds every day, as fund custody fees and liquidated damages. Aside from feeling violated and robbed, I was in no position to provide any additional funds to the wallet. My friend mentored me to see about getting a loan from my bank or take out credit card debt. None of this resonated with me, and it all felt like extortion. She then stated that she would fund my wallet and even act as a Guarantor if I would pay her back the reward of 118.88 ETH (about $280K) plus the $65,000 within one month. I declined this offer even though she said she'd be Guarantor. While I made the decision to invest based on advice from my friend, her actions contributed to this significant loss. After contacting MetaMask's support team, I learned that this has been a liquidity mining pool and is not legal. Aside from the financial harm this caused to me, there were others in the group she led who were also negatively impacted.

Pigbutchering Scam

***Please note that attached files contain sensitive information and images that I wish to keep confidential for myself and everyone involved except for the scammer. The files include detail timestamps of Bitcoin ATM receipts, crypto addresses on the blockchain, wire transfer documents, coaching screenshots, entire “relationship” conversations, etc. and is completely factual to the best of my knowledge. Please See attached files for full detailed information*** PIG-BUTCHERING/ROMANCE SCAM: It started the day I finally responded to his messages via Instagram on Aug 17th at 7:03pm. “Alan Zhao” aka “tx_newcowboy” "Let me introduce myself, my name is Alan, I am from China and now live in US, I run a food import and export company in LA and invest in some BLOCKCHAIN SHORT-TERM TRANSACTIONS". We hit it off with fun light banter and with his persistence and attentiveness, we moved our “relationship” over to WhatsApp. Over the course of 3 months, he managed to manipulate, trick me by coaching me on how to invest in cryptocurrency, walked me through step by step having me send a screenshot over so he can mark the next step for me to follow because he wanted to help me make money for a secure future for me and my kids, convinced me of a future for us as family, had me borrow money from friends, family, and at the end out of pure desperation, pulled a loan as a final attempt to withdrawal all the money that they held hostage slamming me with unforeseen “taxes” and “proof of legitimacy” he made me put in the fraudulent account to begin with; taking over $460,000. Now I am stuck in a loan of $208,000 @ 18% interest over 120 months making it over $400K, + $100,000 @7% interest +$65,000, not to mention my own $100k of my whole life’s savings that I will never be able to pay back so long as I live. My monthly payment for loans is $6,000 + $2500 for rent and utilities, so to sum it up, I am drowning in debt that I was fighting him to not get into from the beginning to right before he went dark and ruined my entire life.
