$5 000 USD





"Got scammed $5,000 in a crypto mining scam. Feeling depressed. Feeling like a stupid piece of shit.


What transpired was:


I was in an official crypto miner group of a mining company on Telegram. I messaged in the group asking about the payment process. A person in the group direct messages me about the question. Says he’s from the US. He recommends I ask the admin of the official crypto group if there are any miners to buy. He sends me the contact card of the admin - which is “[company name] admin will never Direct Message you first”. This “admin” is also in the official telegram group so I thought it was legit. I message the admin if there is any stock left. She says yes there is. She sends me a QR code and I take too long to pay, after a while she says no stock. Next day she messages me says there is actually stock as other buyers did not buy it. I pay for the first miner. She says 2nd miner is 50% off because it is the last item. She then deletes the whole chat and the chat history disappears. The person who initially messaged me, that chat history also disappears. I was actually already feeling depressed at the time it happened so I was not thinking rationally and really just wanted the miners. Now i feel more depressed.


I am not sure if i can be successful in life If I like a child fell for such a scam."
