Haha. I never told i have a friend from whatsApp. You’re a scammer, too!! Get lost!
I understand you’re suspicious. It’s a healthy mindset you should keep after being scammed. I have posted a warning about this scam before your post and know how they operate as I was a victim myself. In almost all cases it’s through dating websites or social media and then they use WhatsApp for daily chat. I have talked to 10-15 victims from this scam already. All similar stories. It’s called « Sha Zhu Pan » or « Pig butchering scam » you can read about it online. The WhatsApp friend or lover is a staple. Your story was not different from others. There is no reason they would change their strategy with you

I also just got scam by this broker, met some guy online said from hongkong, we talked and he introduce me to MT5 and steady 168. I first deposit 5k and on my first trade i made 1100$. I able to with 2 twice, first 500$ then 4500$. Then this guy keep encourage me to deposit more and more money in which i said i cant, he transfer me 2000$ from his account which i got a message from customer services saying i have to deposit 3000$ for risk deposit. I did and on monday sep 13 with this guy instruction again, i made 11k in profit and want to withdraw money out and customer service said now i have to pay personal income tax 30% of the profit. That trigger my suspicion because I never heard a thing as such paying personal income tax before withdrawing. Then i search on google and found this post. Now i cant withdraw any money out. My account will be freeze and deduct 10% if i do not pay the personal income taxes. Now i lost my 11k, feel so shitty to get scam

Hello Hungle0147. Im so sorry for this one. Write me privately and I can tell you better about these scammers.

Thank you

FPA Forums Team Note: More people will benefit if you publicly post all information you have about scammers. Many people who want to have private conversations about scammers are really just trying to steal more money from scam victims.

I hate hearing about these scams! Nothing is worse than losing hard earned money to seedy brokers. Sorry to hear this happened to you but hopefully this post will bring awareness.
