Buenos días. Lamento comunicar que fui estafado a través d Eun grupo de WhatsApp al que fui incluído sin mi consentimiento. Pero caí en el juego. Ofrecían altos rendimientos en una inversión a través de crypto activos. Con un depósito en USDT en TRUST WALLET y linkeando la billetera a un "Pool de Minería de Liquidez" con % de interés desde 1% hasta 6% diario (según el monto invertido). Eso funcionó bien, probé con 200 USDT y efectivamente al día siguiente pude retirar 2 USDT. Eso generó confianza y entusiasmo en mí así que al cabo de 2 días subí mi inversión a 1000 USDT, con lo cuál comencé a generar 20 USDT de interés al día (2%) que efectivamente aparecían en mi billetera de TRUST WALLET, así que pasados 3 días, volví a subir mi inversión a 5000 USDT dado que el período de ingresos altos era sólo hasta unas semanas más (7 Junio, y estábamos en 6 de Mayo aproximadamente). Mi ingreso diario se volvió a incrementar, ahora al 3%, 150 USDT de ganancia diaria, era maravilloso, eso equivale a 2.5 días de trabajo. Sin hacer nada! Eso me permitiría dedicarme a proyectos importantes en mi vida! Sin preocuparme por mis ingresos al menos durante los siguientes 2 meses. Así que comencé a hacer retiros parciales de las ganancias, cada 3 días... 450 USDT. Alcancé a a hacer 2 retiros, y ahí vino mi error... La confianza ya estaba... Así que introduje el capital en la opción 2 del "Pool" dejarlo atrapado "en la Nube" en una especie de depósito a plazo a 7 días. Mientras al mismo tiempo para no perder mi liquidez... Deposité otros 3000 USDT en la opción 1 para seguir teniendo ingresos diarios. Los ingresos en "La Nube" eran el doble pero sin posibilidad de percibir el dinero hasta terminados los 7 días. A los pocos días ya tenía cerca de 6500 USDT con lo cuál si transfería el dinero de la opción 1 sumaban 9500 USDT ya muy cerca del siguiente peldaño de 10000 USDT para aumentar la ganancia al doble de 4% o sea 8% diario, era una locura, casi irreal! Y me invitaron a hacerlo, en el grupo de WhatsApp... Y lo hice 😞

Terminó el período de 7 días al cabo de 3 días más y figuraban ganancias de cerca de 4700 USDT IMPRESIONANTE. Solicité el retiro y comenzó el calvario... Primero debía pagar el impuesto del 30% sobre la ganancia, y no lo podían descontar de mi retiro. Tuve que pagar cerca de 1400 USDT de mi bolsillo para optar a recibir mi dinero, aunque en ese momento ya olía mal! Pero era la única forma de intentar recuperar mi dinero... Seguirles el juego! Pero con yo con mucho miedo. 

Cuando envié al mail solicitado mi comprobante de pago del supuesto impuesto... Recibo un mail de respuesta que expongo en foto, pidiendo que depositara OTROS 5000 USDT en mi billetera de TRUST WALLET, ante lo cual me negué rotundamente, claramente era una estafa! Y me querían robar otros 5000 USDT. Reclamé a mi contacto de WhatsApp que me había orientado en todo el proceso y a los pocos minutos me bloqueó y eliminó del grupo por donde todo había comenzado 😞 y por supuesto mi dinero nunca más lo ví.

Perdí finalmente cerca de 9000 USDT porque el resto del dinero en parte había salido de las ganancias del supuesto negocio.

Es horrible la impotencia que se siente !!!

Ojalá a nadie de Uds. le suceda jamás.Screenshot_2024_0520_110943.thumb.png.f784a1656881d50df6e52115032f2119.png

What about Sex Blackmailing scams ? On video call a girl removes her cloths, real or pre-recorded video.  Then money demand call. I deny to pay. Then a fake Intelligence Bureau officer will call.
I just go on blocking the numbers. Anything better to do ?

My daughter's marriage was last week. Before then,she got a call from an unknown number, telling her that the date they fixed for the marriage cannot work because there would be a very important function that day. The caller said it can only work if the husband to be, paid them a certain amount of money,so they could settle the enforcement group. I requested for the number.When i called it, Truecaller identified it a spam. I then asked her to block the number.

If you're looking for information on how to identify spam and scams, there are a few key things to watch out for. 

1. Be cautious of unsolicited emails or messages asking for personal information or financial details. 

2. Check the sender's email address or phone number - scammers often use generic addresses or numbers.

3. Look out for spelling and grammar mistakes in the message, as this can be a red flag.

4. Avoid clicking on suspicious links or downloading attachments from unknown sources.

5. Research any company or organization before providing any sensitive information.

For more detailed tips and resources on identifying spam and scams, you can visit the website of **Federal Trade Commission (FTC)** at www.ftc.gov.

Is there anything specific you'd like help with regarding spam and scam identification?

For some reason, people like to try to scam me. I get them on Instagram, WhatsApp, and through regular SMS.

 

One of my favorite ones is when I'm offered a new job! These scams are easy to spot as they always reach out from companies with long weird names. So I turn my scam mode on.

I have some amazing titles nowadays thanks to this.

Listen to this: Merchandise Maintainer. My job purpose: To maintain the products of merchants on major online shopping platforms. 
 

I always play along with the scammer, having long conversations, telling them the links don't work, negotiating for a salary increase, a promotion, or stocks in the company. After a while, they get frustrated and stop responding. I see it as me keeping them busy from scamming someone else.
