Someone texted me in IG who introduce himself as a crypto trade expert and convinced me to invest in thier company Express Trader Profits. This company offers trading services in your behalf and you will be recieving a profit from your investment without doing nothing. I invested 126USD. So far so good. Now my profit is more than 9K USD. When I make a withdrawal the system bot ask me for the COT code.I recieved an emai.from.them saying that I need to fee 601USD for security and maintenance fee. My account will be in pending mode until made the payment. Is the COT code that I was asked to provide is related to this? Please advice. Thank you.

    Sorry, but you got scammed. Your $126 are gone, and any further money you pay in relation to this scheme will be gone too.

    Note that there is no 9K profit. The scammers will have created a website to make it look like you've made a profit.

    Any offer of guaranteed safe high returns will only end up costing you money. Commented Jul 13, 2022 at 12:48

    If I can turn $100 into $9000 then I don't need your $100 to make my money.

    In general, never trust anyone who randomly contacts you on social media about money. It's going to be a scam 100% of the time. Commented Jul 14, 2022 at 23:16
