Dear all,

My pleasure writing my first message to you all, I have been reviewing the forum and I didn't find any other section to post my query.

I have been victim of a scam from "hkcoex.com" and I was thinking that "maybe" I could have some backup here, thank you in advance.

A few months ago, I met a person in an app (living in Hong Kong "apparently"), and after some time she started talking me about her expertise in the crypto world, and that her company was creating a new cryptocurrency.

She was sending me pics of her, her office and her investments on this website, so finally decided to trust her and invested 7.500€.

These 7.500€ went up until reaching 77.607USDT.

When I tried to cashout, I then received an email from "hkcoex Customer service", telling that I would need to pay a fee of 4.000USDT to a crypto adress first.
Then I realised it was a scam. I didn't pay 4.000USDT nor I will do.

In the email I was told that "in private placement platforms, this is a normal service fee" and "we have not any authority to use any assets in your account".

So then I was sure that I was scammed.
I wish I would have found this forum before.

Is it anything I can do to recover the money?
Did you treat any cases like this before?

Any tip will be more than appreciated.

If you need any screenshots, just let me know.

Thank you very much in advance again and kind regards,

Just adding that I am from Spain.
I did create Binance account to fund it through my bank account. Then used binance to fund hkcoex account.

She never requested me details of my bank account, etc.

Thanks again,

This is ongoing social media scam tactics and many people getting in this trap, even I got approached more than 5 times in couple of years.

How did you deposit the money?
