I was scammed by a SungerFx.
Unfortunally I was involved in romantic scam scenario.
Met a profile on tinder and after a few weeks of conversation the guy suggested to try trading on mt5 investing in XAUUSD margin trade, saying he will guide me through and help me avoid big risks. After a while i decided to try with some small ammount. I was not transfering money directly from my bank account but via Binance, so as i know now i can't ask my bank to do a chargeback.
As there were a succesfull trading experience 2-3 times every week he started to tell me that now there is a great chance to sieze the opportunity and get good profits, but I need to invest more now. I said i don't have money and he even offered to help and gave me 10000USDT and i should get the other 10000USDT. So I did. And he kept on guiding me through and investments were "growing". I withdrawed a couple of times a small ammount of 150 USDT and everything was fine so i didn't get alarmed. But few days ago i tried ro withdarw a bit more and it was rejected. I've contacted "the customer service" and they told me bacause i have had a deposit from a different account (the 10000 USDT that he kind of gave me, were deposited form coinbase. and probably it was another victim or just fake account) they suspect me in money laundring so they freeze my account and in order to get access to my funds I have to pay a deposit of 10000USDT.
At the begging i even started to look for money, but then i talked to friends, brokers and lawyer and everyone told me not to put any money there. The guy even then tried to kind of help me and found 5000USDT so i just needed to find the other half, but when i said i couldn't make it he dissapeared and the phone is turned off now.
I am from Russia and as I understand there is now use to go to police here.
What can you suggest? As i see there are a lot of people here in the same situation maybe a group court claim can work.
I would really be greatfull for any tip or advice or any other victims here sharing their experience so we can join our investigations
thank you in advance

also you have any screenshots of the relevant communication and the deposit amounts, that would be helpful.

Even a full account statement would be good.

but sungerfx has been on FPA and Consob list of fraudulent schemes, still wondering how @Salfeti still fell for this scam, guess you didn't do any backgroud check before following wuit with your supposed online lover. you should always lookout here or trustpilot to know what people are saying about any trading company before investing with them. I really do hope there is a way they wil return all you've lost.
