i had the same problem, for me things are still going on. i cumulatively deposited $20,000 and also invited other people to join the platform to trade the assets. fortunately i won and now that i request a withdrawal of my money, they condition the withdrawal on the recruitment of investors to the platform. when i bring an investor to the platform, i will get part of my winnings. what I find strange. i started to research them and came across this platform. what i noticed is that they have the same registration number as another broker i found on the internet. when i pushed it further, they are not legal and all the information they post on their website is consistent with another broker. ghctrades.com/en/index.html

the website, of Intan technology is this one:in-tan.com/en/
the information and registration numbers are the same as I don't know who copied on the other one. Probably Intan technology.


having tried the bank transfer once, I have the account number, address, name and phone number of the beneficiary. I think this will help.

Help me to report them all over the world and get them arrested. i have their picture, name and phone number. i also have the phone number of their accomplice who invited me on the platform and who has been missing since the beginning of January. please help me.

Thank you

you should - do you have any picture of Chen Xin -wanted to know if that is the same person i am dealing with
Is this her??

Nice to meet you all.
I am Japanese.

I was solicited by a Taiwanese woman I met through a matching site to trade overseas forex and opened an account with BTCUSBT investment limited.
I was instructed to get support for depositing and withdrawing money from her account manager, Kate, via "LINE".

I started trading on December 3, 2020, with 300,000 yen ($2,900).
She acted as my analyst and gave me trading instructions. Then I deposited 1.2 million yen ($11,500) as she instructed me to add more margin to make a bigger profit. (At this point, my total deposit was about $14,000)

On December 8, she instructed me to ask Kate to tell me about the VIP system.
1 cumulative deposit: $3,000 -> 20% reduction in transaction fees
2 Cumulative deposit: $50,000 -> 40% reduction in transaction fees
3 Cumulative deposit: $10,000 -> 60% reduction in transaction fees
4 Cumulative deposit: $150,000 -> 80% reduction in transaction fees

She instructed me to aim for a cumulative deposit of $30,000, but since cash alone was not enough, I felt it was too risky and once refused the instruction. However, I ended up selling my other financial assets to make the deposit. This was a big mistake. (Total deposit amount: $30,722)

On December 23, I told Kate that I wanted to withdraw all funds ($133,968).
Kate told me that I had passed the withdrawal review and that I should pay 20.315% ($20,974) of my earnings ($103,246) as income tax within three business days. Kate also told me that once the taxes were paid, the requested funds would be deposited into my bank account in three business days.

I thought this instruction was very strange. I asked why it was not deducted from my earnings.
Kate replied that she could not process the payment because the funds had already been transferred to "Tokyo Collateral Co.
I also pointed out to Kate that the tax rate should be different from the Japanese tax rate.
Kate replied that she didn't know, as it was managed by "Tokyo Collateral Co.

I submitted a withdrawal request from the CRM center on the web on December 24 just to be sure, and I received an email from BTCUSDT informing me that the withdrawal request was completed.

On December 25, I borrowed the tax money from my parents and applied for payment to Kate. I made the transfer to my Japanese bank account as instructed. Within the same day, Kate replied that she had received the tax money and submitted it to the "Tokyo Collateral Co.

I was very skeptical about this company, so on December 28, I asked Kate to tell me when my money would arrive.

The next day, December 29, Kate reported back to me. The next day, on December 29th, I received a report from Kate saying that the transfer of funds to my bank account had failed due to suspicion of money laundering. She also told me that I had to pay 20% of the application amount, about $27,600, as protection money in order to transfer the funds. He told me that the money would be deposited into my bank account within the same day. However, I was told that if I left the funds unpaid after January 15, I would be charged 1.7% of the applied funds daily as a custody fee.

I felt this was obviously strange. However, I foolishly borrowed the protection money from a financial institution and paid it in installments on January 12 and January 13.
Then, four hours after I made the payment, my analyst girlfriend reported that she could not log into my account. I also tried to log in and it seemed that all accounts had been deleted.
Of course, Kate did not report any payment received that day.

Please let me know what I can do to help. I feel very shame for wasting my parents' money. I don't want to be another victim like me in the future.

Sincerely yours
Hi ihiro831,

I have also been impacted by this very similar scam. To add to how well they play this, we video chatted, voice called as well as messaged. I have many photos of this supposed person who went by the name of Song Jie, while the account specialist's name was Amanda, and the trade analyst went by the name of Teacher Spencer Li.

Same as you, everything seemed to go very well right up until the time I tried to withdraw funds - after which I was told that the "International Anti-Money Laundering Organization," had frozen the transaction and they required a 15% security deposit to be sent from my receiving account to prove whom I was and that the account belonged to me. I of course did not proceed... they did threaten to 'hand my brokerage account over' to the authorities I assume, however until now, I still have access and still have visibility to the funds still present... though I have also been told that this is likely a dummy number and account.

Like you, this has impacted me significantly financially. I have reported to the FTC, ASIC, CFPB, CFTC, NFA, AFCA as well as my home institution and MoonPay. At this time there seems to be no resolution, and like you I hope people can find this information to prevent further damage to others.

If anyone is looking for further information from me, please reach out.

Good luck all, and I trust these people will eventually get what's coming to them.

Hi jnrflo25

I am sorry that you lost your money as well as mine to fraud. I know it is hard to get your money back once you have lost it to fraud. However, I am trying to find out what I can do to prevent another victim.
Incidentally, the police in Japan tend to deny that this scam is a crime committed by a forex broker. In some cases, they treat it as a scam that occurred between individuals.

Start by filing complaints with the Futures and Securities Commission in your country, the HK SFC and the US CFTC. What country are you located in?
