Many cryptocurrency confidence scams start “by accident” when scammers send realistic text messages. The message seems intended for somebody else but after you tell the sender they have the wrong number, the person continues the conversation.
This contact is no mistake, and they didn’t accidentally text you. You’re being targeted by an international criminal enterprise. The message is bait, and the scammer is trying to lure you into a conversation to eventually convince you to invest in a digital trading platform by representing that the investments are with trusted firms and cryptocurrency exchanges. They promise returns beyond any stock portfolio and may even show screenshots or offer a free “demo.” In reality, the purported firms and exchanges are non-existent trading platforms. You’ll see an incredible balance gr sow in your account. You now wish to withdraw your earnings, with plans to share your new wealth with family and friends and pursue a life of financial independence… only to realize every penny is gone. It was stolen the moment you transferred it. Billions of dollars are lost every year through these sophisticated scams.
FBI Special Agents working these crimes first-hand, will be presenting. This specialized training is designed to familiarize you with the red flags of digital investment scams, how the scheme works, why these scams are so rampant, and hear victims’ stories.
