I’m so glad you found this before you handed over more money. I wish I was privy to the same information before I forked over money to these scammers. If we all post our experiences these thieves will whither and rot as they deserve.I had the same experience with Axis. The sent a total of $25,000 in BTC to axis to be a diamond member. After seeing balance go over $339,000 the trader had me send him 10 percent (over 34,000) of balance before he would release funds. Now Axis wants me to pay 20 percent tax fee (over $67,000) before they process my withdrawals. I'm in the hole nearly $60,000. I was on the verge of sending the tax fee until I came across this information tonight.
