What to do when You have been scammed?
If the scammers still don’t know you have exposed them
Try to convince the Fraudsters that you want to test the Withdrawals, before a Large Investment, to be sure that you can trust them. There is no guarantee that you will succeed, but it’s worth a try. Even if You could get your money back in this way, report SCAM’s to the relevant authorities and terminate any further contact with them.
If you have just deposited money
Try to stop the transfer ASAP. Most of them are booked in the “Elixir” system between 9.30 a.m, 1.30 p.m. and 4 p.m. and are not performed on weekends. If you deposited funds on a friday afternoon, or you quickly realised that you were dealing with a SCAM, call your Bank Immediately.
If you have paid using Visa or MasterCard holders
Apply for the “Chargeback Procedure”. You can read exactly about the whole Procedure here (link). This is the final form of complaint that the Bank reports to the Card Provider .
