Well for me i just get over it and move on. Just accept what you have lost and then learn from it. And to make you feel better, just think it like this, there are more people out there being scammed or cheated with a larger amount than yours. Smiley

As we know, gambling and investation are risky game it means that we might lose everyday and everytime without being expected. So before you're start gambling and do other risky games, make sure than you're ready to lose rather than ready to get profit from it.
So once you got lose or being scammed, you have well prepared to let it go. But if you're not ready then It may hurt yourself or your family. So play with your own risk.

Haha, so you lose it consciously in a ponzi scam and then feel sorry?
I don't understand! I lost some to AutoDiv, but it was kinda obvious from the beginning.

I lost a few BTC a while back. Never leave your btc on a online wallet... that is what i learnt from it.

At first it hurt and got me angry but eventually you forget about it until the prices surge and then it hits you again lol.

Sorry to hear that you got scammed ( or you made it up)! Anyways, A scammer scammed me 0.4 BTC at 999dice and this is what i did Tongue


You cannot do anything since the nature of bitcoin doesn't allow to reverse transactions!

I opened this thread and when I read the thing, I wanted to put up the same image! I'm too slow for this..

But now something on-topic ( Grin ).. I never experienced any scam, like I didn't scam anyone and I wasn't scammed, maybe it's because I'm too careful or maybe I don't trade a lot here and if I do, it's always with escrow Roll Eyes

Well is there any escrow for ponzi or gambling sites?  Roll Eyes  People always made a mistake, dont matter how careful we are. But, any bad thing that be happened for us could became our experience to avoid that in future  Wink

I've been scammed a few times now - by eBay by PayPal by stolen credit cards and by bitcoin. It hurts for a day, I complain a lot, then I get over it. A friend of mine just got scammed big time in silver trading.

In the end it has nothing to do with bitcoin.

I've been scammed also but not that much and I learned on my mistake. I now deal with trusted escrow to avoid  being scammed again

I do a lot of research before putting my BTC into anything.. *shrugs*.

If someone is offering 10% return weekly...... you reap what you sow.

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'm sorry to hear this Sad. If it was me, i would forget about it. Don't wasted your time to shout scammers. First it's your first experience, so let your 5.5BTC go because they won't return your BTC anymore. Learn from this and don't try ponzi again Wink

Exaclty, you cannot help it once it got scammed as the scammers are never going to return it back, as its their job to steal hard earned coins of ordinary people like us, but it could be an learning experience and should take care that the same mistake is not repeated again in the future.

Since you are a newbie so you would not know that Bitcoin Ponzi schemes are most hated here.
I've never found a website that gives you your coins back after growing them.

In initial phase of the site there are some chances that they give you back your coins along with interest so as to lure more people into it. But as their user base grows they scam people and run away with their bitcoins.

I don't like to think about "what I will do when I get scammed" because I don't plan in getting scammed, thats why I avoid anything that looks like a scam, and for years this has worked, i've never gotten scammed. If I invested in a coin that didn't blow up and tanked it was my fault, i wasnt scammed.

It's probably been said already (didn't read all the responses) but the best thing to do is to first take a few days away to cool off. Once you are not quite as upset, review what factors led you to get scammed in the first place.

I am not talking simply realizing someone tricked you, I am talking why did you fall for the trick? You need to analyze what was it about the offer that so overpowered you to ignore your good judgement. Did you have any doubts at all beforehand or did you 100% trust the situation you were getting into? If the answer is yes, than you would need to analyze this as well.

If you did have doubts beforehand, but went ahead anyway, you need to figure out why you chose that direction. Simply saying greed is not enough, you need to understand your mental processes better to be better equipped to avoid situations like this in the future. The worse thing would be to have this negative experience polarize you to the other extreme and simply assume everything is a scam and avoid good opportunities altogether.

That is the right thing to do, it is better we take precautions and avoid by getting scammed, As it is said that "Prevention is better than Cure", I am also using bitcoins since last 4 years and yet not get scammed, but we don't need to be overconfident about it, as scammers are much more talented than us that's what I believe.

Before doing some business, I'm thinking about the motivation of my business partner. If the motivation is sharp & clear, then I'm in. If it's shady, one common example is money coming out from nowhere, then I'm refusing.

-> I never got scammed >$1. If I get scammed anyways, I'll improve my risk management.
