He messaged me on Instagram on 28 Aug 2020, thereafter we moved on to WhatsApp chat. His IG username is Mad982020. After a few days, he introduced me to a way of investing with high return (90%) and offered to guide me on how to do it. I decided to just give it a try to see how it work.
He asked me to download an app from an external link and create an account. He also asked me to use Huobi Global to buy cryptocurrency to transfer to bjs app. He gave me the customer service number for quicker response. It was actually option trading with cryptocurrency. For my first trade, I did earn money and able to withdraw my whole amount from the app.
He encouraged me to continue invest into the b?s platform. On my third topup, the customer service intro the top-up activity to me which include free gifts or cash. He also lured me to join in the activity by offering to help share half of the topup amount. After joining the activity, I could not take out the money. Customer service said I need to top up to the amount in order to withdraw. However after I hit the amount, there were still various “taxes” to pay. I realised I was scammed when he blocked me after that. After this I also realised that his IG photos were stolen from a Weibo user.
