I just joined your club as one of the victim . You've lost half less than what I've put in. Sorry for that. For me, I took it with a grain of salt and out of greed went and fell for it when I had a hunch. Lesson learned for me. However, money can be taken away, but always stay positive and work hard to earn back what's loss, please do not let money dictate your life outcome.yes I did, i am in US, I just didn't know which agency i need report this Scammer?
While I've lost a good chunk, but I've learned a lot more in day trading so I know I am still good.
What you can try to do is extract small amount (100-1000) slowly (but i'd recommend 100-500) back to your main wallet (coinbase/bitstamp/etc...) if your account hasn't been locked up (asset puts under "in order"). This puts you under the radar of their system flagging your account. I've managed to do that for ~5k that I was planning to do daily with 1k each time, but stopped after being led to believe (stupid on my end). So now I would say it's too late for me.
I'm going to try and follow some of the guide links above to file to help prevent top tank from scamming others (they go under many different referral name sites but no official link page).
Once again, my condolences to you, but again don't let the scammer take more joy out of you being depressed over lost income.
