    SCAM ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!! So this happened to me 3 weeks ago and it was a complicated moment for me, I was going through my Facebook feed and saw a post concerning investing with one FX Trader, The Facebook user said she invested $10,000 and got back 10times the amount in 5days, I decided to give it a try because the Offer was too good to reject, within a period of a month I had paid $20,000+ in total and each time I tried to withdraw they always ask me to pay for something else with the reason why I needed to pay to get my money and profit that had accumulated also telling me to refer someone before withdrawing my profit. I became tired and complained on a group luckily for me a user told me about a crypto recovery expert. I hesitated but then contacted him and he asked for the transaction history and details and within 7 hours they asked for my wallet address and sent me a whooping $20,000, I can’t thank him enough. it’s super incredible how they got mine back, you do all you can to help every victims!!! Just amazing, I applaud your ability to counter so many scammers with detailed measures and still be keeping it all cool without taking any credit from us, and if you already in one of this cases then you shouldn’t hesitate to contact Robert cyber Recovery Contact Robert cyber Recovery
