Victims are contacted on Telegram, WhatsApp, Line, WeChat, IG and dating websites and romance is used to lure them in. Eventually scammers talk about investing in crypto and victims are told to go to the website below to invest in crypto but once funds are transferred to a wallet the victim can never get their money back. This is a WARNING not to do any business with this company.

Start by taking screen shots of all communication, trades, their wallet, the website, etc. What country are you from so we can further advise where to report the scam. DO NOT pay any fees or taxes to try and get your money back.

Will do, and I shall keep close touch with my sister for her not to do foolish things.

You can find who is hosting the website, which company, and file a complaint but even if the website is shutdown the scammers will setup 20 more tomorrow.

CloudFlare is hosing the website. You can try to contact them to get the website taken down and reported as a scam.
