Hello guys,

It's already 2 months ago my bank froze my account because of suspicious activity. I wanted to show them evidence of BTC transaction, IDs of the guy I was buying BTC and all documents according to this transaction but bank didn't want to see anything from me. They just told me I have to wait for the letter, my account is under the investigation etc.

After 2 months of waiting, I have finally got information from the bank that guy who bought the BTC from me was a scammer. Lady from the bank told me that the scammer has stolen the money from some other victim account and hence the money I got from scammer have been returned back to victim's bank account.

The lady also told me the bank sent me two letters but I have never received any of them ... the letters have been sent 2 months ago ...

Did you have any similar experience or do you know someone who faced very same issue? What's your recommendation to do as next steps? Should I go to the police and report this crime?

Do you think is there any chance to get some money back?  Angry

I would appreciate any advice and help !!

Thanks a lot.
Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and Bither are OK.)

If you are innocent and there is no issues I would certainly take this to the Police.

What country are you in? Police will investigate the issues and it shouldn't affect you personally if you are telling the truth.

if it is a big sum of money,you need a lawyer for this the bank manager did not explained to your clearly what are your violations and if it really your faults,it's not your faults but somebody is,it's a hole in their system that they should not blame it on their clients.

What was the suspicious activity ? Do you mind elaborating on that ?

After 2 months of waiting, I have finally got information from the bank that guy who bought the BTC from me was a scammer. Lady from the bank told me that the scammer has stolen the money from some other victim account and hence the money I got from scammer have been returned back to victim's bank account.
That's messed up.Either way,you could tell the Bank that it isn't your concern since you have traded goods with them and you want your money ?

The lady also told me the bank sent me two letters but I have never received any of them ... the letters have been sent 2 months ago ...
You could argue.Don't give up.Be ready to take legal actions or just tell them you will.

What was the amount you were scammed of? Kindly share the details of the transaction as the user can be a member of this forum and he can be tracked here. Also, you can file an FIR and report to the cyber crime of this issue. They can track his IP and get him arrested if he is from your country. If the scammer is from another country, it would be almost impossible to track him down. It happened with me as well where a user from the forum sent me fraudulent funds in my local currency but the police did not cooperate and the case is still pending.

Can you please tell more details about the person with whom you were dealing?
I have also dealt with someone who comes from UK. Don't want to end up in situation like yours.

There is always going to be a risk when dealing with Bitcoin. You took stolen money, so there it little to no chance of you getting your money back.

How about you stop to spam for your signature?

Firstly, I am sorry for your loss.

Was this on this forum, or elsewhere? If it happened on the forum, please create a separate thread and use this to detail exactly what happened:

Code:
[b][color=black]What happened:: [/color][/b]

[b][color=black]Scammers Profile Link: [/color][/b]

[b][color=black]Reference Link: [/color][/b]
[b][color=black]Amount Scammed: [/color][/b]
[b][color=black]Payment Method: [/color][/b]
[b][color=black]Proof of Payment: [/color][/b]
[b][color=black]PM/Chat Logs: [/color][/b]
[b][color=black]Additional Notes: [/color][/b]

While we won't be able to recover your money for you, we can certainly tag the user as a scammer to prevent them doing the same thing to somebody else.

I understand this sucks to say the least, but consider this 0.09 BTC loss as an expensive (and at the same time relatively cheap) lesson in trusting no one. Use escrow on your deals to protect yourself in the future, and always do due diligence on those you trade with.

All the best Smiley

I was scammed before I joined this forum.
It was because of one of those "investment" sites.
That particular site somehow installed malware that hacked my BTCwallet.
I am new to Bitcoin.
