This is so crazy. I had the very SAME situation happen!!
met this guy on tinder, name was Canace on there but then told me his name was Baishi, I’m not working because rona and he said he could help me sustain my life and told me about MT4 and gold and had me set up a jinlong account because “the commission is lower to withdraw”. I reverse image searched him and didn’t find anything so I thought he was legit. He apparently got covid and said he couldn’t send me anymore pictures (he used to send them every day) because the US government was watching him and told him he could not (he made it seem like he was an important low profile businessman who owned shares of Wanda). But anyway I ended up putting like $1,800 total into my jinlong account because he would try to pressure me to borrow money from friends (which I didn’t do) so I could make more money in my jinlong account. I mostly used ETH cryptocurrency to put into my jinlong account. The most recent transaction I put in was like 2 weeks ago. Is there any way to get that money back if I file a report with the bank?
I feel so stupid because I was pretty skeptical but i thought since nothing came up he was legit.
Thanks for sharing. You are not stupid but take this 1800 as a lesson. Now, don't have too much hope on getting those money back. You can report it to the bank and also to authorities, especially your local authorities. Looks like a lot of scammers are conducting fraud using Jinlong. It's the most active forum
