Fraudulent individuals may entice investors by claiming to offer a profitable cryptocurrency trading platform, sometimes even offering additional bitcoin as an incentive. However, these promises are false and the investor may not realize they have been deceived until they have lost their funds.

Given that cryptocurrency transactions are verified through blockchain technology and are not subject to oversight by financial institutions, recovering stolen funds can be difficult. It is advisable to use reputable cryptocurrency exchanges, such as Coinbase,, and Cash App, to avoid falling victim to a fraudulent exchange. It is important to conduct thorough research and review industry sites for information on the exchange’s reputation and legitimacy before providing personal information.
