Cryptocurrency Scam Recovery
Despite the improvements in regulations and enforcement in the cryptocurrency market in recent years, there is still a large number of traders and investors falling victim to cryptocurrency scams.
Scammers are always on the lookout for ways in which to steal your money and with the huge expansion in cryptocurrency, there are now plenty of opportunities for traders to fall victim to cryptocurrency scams. There are many common crypto scams which, sadly, a number of traders fall victim to. With our cryptocurrency scam recovery services, depending on how you lost your crypto funds, our team of UK-based legal experts can begin the process of tracing and recovering your lost funds.
What Is A Cryptocurrency Scam?
Cryptocurrency scammers are using both old and new techniques to steal funds through cryptocurrency scams. As always, where money is concerned, scams will likely follow and this is the same with cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrency scams often aim to gain private information, such as security codes or sensitive information, or trick an investor into sending cryptocurrency.
Crypto scammers will often use fake trading platforms as a way of enticing traders to make investments in unusual ways, such as depositing large amounts or going for particularly big and expensive coins, such as Ethereum or Bitcoin. Although the trading platforms have been created by scammers and are fake, crypto scammers encourage clients to buy legitimate cryptocurrency from legitimate exchanges. We don’t rely on information from scammers, but instead, use the Blockchain to unravel where the property has gone.
This is often where a lot of confusion is caused by other recovery solicitors, who will simply go to the bank and request a chargeback, however, as the crypto lost as a result of the crypto scam has gone to a legitimate end destination, the banks don’t always have a duty of care in place. This means that often, they won’t grant a chargeback.
At Wealth Recovery Solicitors, we operate differently from other recovery companies, with good processes in place. We don’t simply just speak to your bank on your behalf to request a chargeback or use CRM and APP codes and neither do we use free tracing technology to try and find the destination of the crypto lost as a result of a cryptocurrency scam.
Free platforms such as Blockchain Explorer or Etherscan which are used for free tracing are highly unreliable and won’t always provide you with the results required in order to trace the final destination of your crypto and recover your lost funds. Instead, we use our dedicated technology and expertise to trace and recover crypto, with the facility to trace over 100 different coins.

Signs Of Crypto Scams
With cryptocurrency scams, often the sooner you spot and identify that you have been a victim, the easier it is to recuperate any lost funds. There are some ways in which you can spot the signs of common crypto scams and if you want to avoid falling victim to these scams again or in the future, learning more about the signs is the best approach you can take.
Promises Of High Returns
A lot of cryptocurrency scammers will promise you the world in terms of returns if you invest with them. If something seems too good to be true, then it usually is, so always do your research into the promise of high returns.
Asking For Fees To Release Funds
Another common identifiable trait of a crypto scam is if you are asked to pay management or administrative fees, tax payments or “release funds” for the investor to release the funds back to your wallet. If someone you’ve traded with is asking for additional fees to release your funds back to you, then this is a sign of a crypto scam. Usually, in this case, the investor has used your investment to then go on and make their own, typically losing funds in the process, or just want to make additional funds on top of those they’ve already made.
Making Unusual Trading Requests
If an investor is asking you to make unusual trades or investments, such as only investing in certain, large coins, or depositing big amounts at once, then this can also be a sign of a cryptocurrency scam.
If you fall victim to a cryptocurrency scam, then we understand that you may feel embarrassed or have a lack of confidence in making investment decisions again. We’re here to reassure you that there is no embarrassment involved in being the victim of a crypto scam, however, we offer confidential advice and consultations as part of our services.
