Investment Scam Investment Scam

Befriended a lady called ada (whatapps: 89187581) and was convinced by her that she can teach me how to trade cryptocurrency. The initial capital is small ($300). Recommend to open a trading account with webit (website: m.biboxc.com) make profit and able to withdraw money. Then was assured by her that market is good to trade and to deposit more money for good profit. After good winnings, money not able to withdraw. Contacted the platform dedicated customer service (whatapps: +819046440734) and was told need to upgrade to vip and must pay usd$45k to withdraw money. They will come out with so many excuses and even threaten to report me to the police if i dont deposit more money. When they realise that i will not barge. Started to hurl vulgarities to me.

There goes all my saving just because i want to make more money because my wife is pregnant with twins. Now my life savings is gone and I'm in deeper shit that before.

Reported them to the police and hoping for the best. It mentally draining and each day is getting more stress.
