Our Cryptocurrency Scam Recovery Successes

Whilst cryptocurrency has left a lot of people with large investment returns, there are many traders who have fallen victim to cryptocurrency scams and have, unfortunately, lost money as a result. Cryptocurrency scams and trading losses are becoming increasingly more common as more people take to trading and investing as cryptocurrencies, such as Bicoin or Ethereum, are not easily recovered and, for scammers who know what they are doing, the funds can be moved around to make them seemingly untraceable. 

Cryptocurrency is an investment which comes with high-risk and volatility. The value of cryptocurrency can increase and decrease quite rapidly and with this type of investment, there are no guarantees in terms of returns. When traders lose money through cryptocurrency scams, often they believe that cryptocurrency scam recovery is highly unlikely. However, this is where we come in.

How WRS Can Help With Cryptocurrency Scam Recovery

At WRS, we are a niche law firm, specialising in cryptocurrency scam recovery, working to find and retrieve lost funds for clients who trade online with cryptocurrency. We’re finding that a cryptocurrency trading scam which is becoming more and more common is one that involves online brokers who appear to come across as bona fide, taking payments in cryptocurrency.

These brokers make it look as though they are placing trades correctly and, through different methods, coerce victims into depositing more funds via cryptocurrency. The scammer will get the victim to purchase cryptocurrency through setting up exchanges in the victim’s name and then loading the exchange with different forms of cryptocurrency, usually Bitcoin (also known as BTC).

The scammer will then tell the victim that, in order to fund the trading platform, they need to transfer the cryptocurrency from their wallet into one which is controlled by the scammer. It is usual, we find, that the scammer never has any intention to place trades and have used this as a method to steal cryptocurrency deposited. 

Usually, once this has gone, the property is not recoverable as the victim will not have the correct tools in order to trace this accurately. At WRS, our team are aware of tools such as blockchain explorer and Ether scan to carry out traces but, unfortunately, we know that scammers move the property so many times that these tools often don’t show the end point. 

We use very specific in house tools which allow us to locate the funds and establish the correct end point through our tracing process. After completing the tracing process, we are then able to recover the funds, which we have done numerous times successfully for our clients as part of our cryptocurrency scam recovery services.
