Default Scammed 145k :(

Long story short i am screwed, ive been scammed over 145k pounds in the space of a month, just typing up this my hands are shaking i honestly feel like giving up.

Everything i have worked for has gone, life savings which i had plans for literally gone,

I need help if anyway i can recover my money or if this is it, basically someone i was chatting to not a friend more a scam artist convinced me to start trading through this app called SEHK, in all honestly the person didn't push the trading on me at first it was me and my dumb self but once i started trading the person was convincing me to put more money into it the better, basically ive been buying USDT through binance and getting a USDT address from this SEHK platform where ive been making trades on at first it seemed like i was making profit etc, when i come to withdraw the money they asked me to pay 20% tax i paid that then they asked for 10% security deposit which i paid now there asking for service fees which ive not paid because now i feel there taking the piss and it seems like there just trying to get me to transfer money to them, the service fee is 5% there saying once i pay the 5% the money will be withdraw to my binance but tbh they said that when i paid the deposit, whats strange is before this transfer i done a test transferred of 100$ from the sehk account to my binance account and they approved it, they have said anything under 200k dollars has no tax on it and no deposit etc

now i have in total invested over 145k pounds and my money is stuck there saying its still in sehk but i think ive been scammed,

has anyone used this app before SEHK its a Hong Kong based app, i phoned the bank there basically telling me to piss off what do i do i am screwed or is there a chance i could get my money back i have all the chat logged on whatssapp and all the transfers from binance and my bank

if someone can help me please i am begging anyone who has knowledge in this field to help me please

HOW COULD I BE SO STUPID HONESTLY THE WORST THINGS JUST HAPPEN TO ME :(

People like you in similar situations are the reason why all high street banks stop retail investors transferring a couple of grand in to their coinbase or binance accounts until they go through fraud check and listen to the fraud department ramble on about the risks of crypto and investing lol.

What the hell were you thinking ? You progressively move to large amounts when you see short term gains and successfully withdraw. And you always do your own due diligence and research.

The company does seem legit though so I think it's a case of just paying their extortionate service fees and withdrawing.

Multiple crypto exchanges closing over night and "losing" client funds. Recently in South Africa 2 brothers vanished with over 69 000 client bitcoins and closed down their exchange (Africrypt) due to a "hack". Before that the founder of MTI also vanished with a billion dollars of client bitcoins.

What's weird is the first withdrawal i made was like 100$ and that went it to my binance account, i think there just holding my money either that or there is no money and there just trying to milk as much money as possible from me.

Have you heard about this company SEHK before i cant find anything about them on the net, they are just a app from what is looks like this is the site http://www.2sehk.top

I've had to pay them 20% tax via USDT is this normal practice then a 10% deposit for security and now there asking for 5% service fee? They just seem to be adding charges after charges, either that or there customer service team is rubbish, they are based in Hong Kong and use a translater to communicate with me.

A company ive got InTouch

iwith which is Funds Back Ltd are saying they're a scam copy cat company and they will just keep asking for money, they've quoted me 12k to try get the money back from them and 10% on what they get back, they seem to think i have a strong case who knows maybe another scum bag company trying to get more money from me.

I genuinely don't know what to say ...

Initially I thought this was a bullsh!te thread to advertise a company you own or will get a kickback from.

Now it sounds like you legitimately chucked in 145k to some unknown exchange ? why would you not stick to the tried and tested popular exchanges ?

Nobody can help you. Certainly not any one asking for money to help. It's your account, you have access to it, you should be able to withdraw your money at a loss or profit after paying whatever fees they're asking because after all most exchanges want a fee but it's usually taken out of the balance you are withdrawing, that's how it works on binance and coinbase, but you know that already right ?

Watch out for PM's from people asking for money to help you.

The bank will most certainly do nothing about it.

Whats wrong with you? How you lost money? Pay their fees and get your money is it not that simple?

You should read their terms before doing business with them

Do not pay any more of their fees. If they were legit they could take the fees out of the funds of yours they have. They are likely a complete scam. There are lots of them in crypto.

Your bank can do nothing and neither will Binance. Your only chance is to get law enforcement involved. It is sizeable enough that law enforcement may take an interest. The likelyhood of getting the funds back is slim though.

In the mean time use this as a motivator to hustle harder to make back the funds and than some. Feeling sorry for yourself is just wasted energy.

Basically the SEHK exchange that ive showed a link above is holding the money who knows its probably done by now and they keep asking for charges first it was 20% tax then a security deposit which is supposedly going to get refunded in 7 days and they said they will withdraw the amount now there saying a service fee before they can withdraw :( they keep asking for fees.

Then cut your losses and run and put this whole sorry episode down to a once in a lifetime moment of madness.

On the positive side you're a wiser and more diligent person for the experience.
