      Hello Community,

      I want to share a concerning experience I recently had, involving a sophisticated scam. I’m sharing this in hopes that it might prevent others from falling into the same trap.

      The first red flag appeared when I received a prompt to call my bank and increase the security on my account. Upon calling, I was connected with a woman who claimed to be from the bank. She informed me that my account had been compromised and advised me to withdraw all my money and deposit it into a Bitcoin machine for safety. According to her, the bank would set up a new account for me immediately.

      I was sent a QR code to use at the Bitcoin machine. Trusting this instruction, I transferred a significant sum of $18,800 into two different Bitcoin machines.

      It’s now clear to me that the money is gone, and this was a scam. I wanted to share this incident here to raise awareness and possibly alert others who might be investigating similar cases. It’s a hard lesson to learn, and I hope by sharing my experience, I can help prevent someone else from making the same mistake.

      If anyone has encountered a similar situation or has any advice on potential recourse, your input would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you for taking the time to read and for any assistance you can offer.
