A woman who called herself Elaine (EDOAK) befriended me on Telegram. After she acquired my trust, she mentioned that she uses Starrinsure for passive income. After I expressed interest, she told me about it and sent me a link to their Telegram called Starrinsure Help Centre. They said I can start my investment with as little as 0.025 BTC, but that higher levels had bonuses, and that I would be paid 1.52% interest per day for 30 days. Because I was new to Starrinsure and I didn’t know them very well, I decided to go with the smaller investment. They told me to send 0.026 BTC just in case, so on April 21,2021 at 11:31am EST, I sent 0.02639039 BTC (about $1200 at the time) to 1NpytC4x7MsWs3tbGeTs6jSXuiFDk8jK19. In the meantime, “Elaine” kept chatting with me, asking about my life while “she” talked about herself and her family in Louisiana. Both Elaine and Starrinsure tried to get me to invest more, but I refused saying that I needed to be able to show that I can withdraw my investment first before I would commit to higher levels. I was given access their “Starrinsure Trade Bot” on Telegram, where I could view my 0.026 BTC initial investment, and watch the “Investment Revenue” grow daily. After my 30-day investment period was up, I asked the Starrinsure Help Centre to help me withdraw and they said I needed to send them another 0.0038 BTC as a withdrawal fee. I was suspicious and appalled that they had increased the withdrawal fee from that which they previously quoted me, but because I needed to get my investment back I agreed. So on May 22, 2021 at 8:13pm EST, I sent 0.00399942 BTC (including the BTC transaction fee, total of about $140 at the time) to the same address to pay the withdrawal fee. After I sent the withdrawal fee, the Starrinsure Help Centre stopped responding to my inquiries and deleted my Telegram chat history. “Elaine” (or EDOAK) deleted our chat history as well. I have not heard from either of them again.
