It is a pity that u are scammed by a ponzi, don't be greedy you won't be scammed in the future.

I was scammed by an altcoin, that's also painful, 60BTC is a huge amount of money, cause it was 600 USD per bitcoin when I was scammed, so never trust anyone when u have big amount of money, scammers always look at your pockets, and wanna steal and scam.

Not only u, bitpay's high manager, also got scammed, and it is 5000btc scam, we are luckier than him at least.

"After capturing Mr. Krohn's Bitpay credentials, the hacker used that information to hack into Mr. Krohn's Bitpay email account to fraudulently cause a transfer of bitcoin" valued at $1,850,000, the lawsuit says.

According to court documents, the transfer was a total of 5,000 bitcoins in three separate transactions.

Hello buddies,

It would be sad story if our bitcoin get scammed.  Cry

But it does happen from time to times, as we are all human beings, we are kind of greedy, we all want more bitcoins, and we all want the bitcoin in our wallet growing and growing ...

Then, we may get scammed by some online games, get scammed by gambling, get scammed by some investment programs, get scammed by ponzi schemes...etc., we send them our bitcoin base on their promising promises, but after the payment we'll never get their delivery as return ...  and we may even get scammed by our best friends as well ...

I've been scammed by a ponzi program called Rockwell Partner, I was scammed 5.5 BTC there.
I could do nothing expect shouting everywhere it was a scammer.

What did you do to fight against the scammers when your bitcoin was scammed?

I will cry.  Cry

But you know that crying will never make your lost btc returned.

I'm looking for the best way to keep my bitcoins growing.

That's not to say there aren't great opportunities  but just make sure you do a lot research before you go shooting off any Bitcoin to somebody you've never met.

I would distinguish two different cases:

1) You were using legit service just for common purposes, like coin exchange that had been "hacked".

2) You were greedy and would like to magically multiply your BTC (ponzi, IPO etc.) and then got scammed.

Of course, there is no excuse for scammers. But as long as we can do nothing to punish them, the only line of defence is to make right choices.
You didn't? If you need to get some practical knowledge in this matter, you have to pay Wink

Feel sorry for your loss but does depend on if greed got you in the end or someone managed to trick you but I guess its a life lesson plenty of sharks in the water.

If someone has lost lots of money through ponzi schemes they could probably seek legal help in places where bitcoin is not banned! The assets can then be reclaimed by the owner. I would suggest people invest in legit and well know sites such as hashnest.com

And how are they supposed to help you? The anoymous nature of bitcoin makes it very difficult to get anything back if you ever can prove that you have been scammed at all. The anonymity favors those who need anonymity like scammers and other lowlife.

There will mainly be a way to trace the owner of the ponzi scheme. You could find the location of the IP and remove the server and all equipment attached using high court enforcement officers. The foolish OP that gambled away £700 obviously has lots of money/bitcoin so shouldn't need to claim it back anyway. Op could alwasy try hashnest.com and miningsweden.se for bitcoin investments. Thes are provably not ponzi schemes.

I also lost doge on a gambling website back then, and the site seemed legit. I thought it was run by Stunna because they used a similar branding to Primedice. Primedice is legit, so I thought that was legit too. It turns it wasn't related to Primedice and was run by some scammers, or either it went bankrupt. In any case I lost a couple hundred thousand doges.
