Adds you based on reputable friend ig name with phishing using a slightly altered name and copying their complete profile. In order to try and gain my money back I convinced him to show me his balance. It's terrible how much he scammed from others. Over half a million.

A guy named John Maxwell contacted me through Facebook asked if I knew anything about Bitcoin talking about it back and forth for weeks. After sending money to build from Bitcoin and start earning money come to find out the money that was taken from my bank accounts was only going into his hands not bitcoin so lost money and bank accounts.

Bitcoin Scam

Liza Fx promised after starting a trade by purchasing Bitcoins I would get my trade money after paying a fee. The fee depends on the amount of the trade. I have sent in about 12,000 totally in fees and have not received a cent. Always when its withdrawal time I pay my part but then there's another fee I need to pay. Today July first I paid my requested fee of $5000 then after her saying the company didn't get all the money which they did after about an hour she says she has it and is processing my withdrawal. Then about 30 mins later she says oh the trade has increased because you didn't pay the fee in time which I was never advised there was a time limit and now I need to pay another $5000 for a trade that has increased double the original amount which was like $132,000 supposedly. How wonderful that is for me huh. She claims she works for Blockchain and this is the company not her with all the fees.

I was tricked into purchasing bitcoin and transferred it into his personal wallet account without realizing it. We agreed the funds would be used to create a forex account to trading but he ghosted me shortly after the transaction was confirmed on cashapp.
