Dating -> Betting website scam, lost 40k$

Post by gullible » Tue Jun 08, 2021 1:45 pm

Hi, So I matched with a chinese looking girl. While she chatting she told me she was playing a game and earning pocket money every month. I smelled scam and asked her "are you a scam girl?". Stopped talking, a week later she pings me again. This time, she says she plays with a group of people and invites me to their group. I trusted her this time and I joined. Big mistake.

So I play two rounds for 2 days, which went well and got some 200$ back. Now it increased my confidence and the 3rd round they asked me to put in 6000$ which I obliged, stupid me.

In the third round, I win a 3000$ more, but to withdraw they said my account has some problem. I need to verify my details. After I submit verification, they said no and asked me to recharge more money to withdraw. After recharging again, I submitted withdraw request and they said my account is frozen and need to deposit more money. Sunken cost fallacy, I did recharge 4-5 times upto 40$ like this.

I lost all my savings. So sad.
