As cryptocurrency and blockchain adoption around the world continues to accelerate, so too do bitcoin and other crypto scams promoted through prominent social media channels, targeting the general public, many of whom are likely unfamiliar with cryptocurrency or the pervasive nature of these scams. Blockchain analysis and cryptocurrency investigations services can help victims obtain the information they need so law enforcement can catch the scammer and recover their funds.
How do you get your money back from a crypto scam?
• Step 1: Gather your evidence (e.g. transaction IDs, dates, amounts sent…)
• Step 2: Write your narrative (who is the scammer, where did you meet…)
• Step 3: Contact a blockchain investigator (paid and pro bono services exist)
• Step 4: Contact law enforcement
