Stolen cryptocurrency

I have recently lost cryptocurrency to a fishing website and my identity photos. I have closed my Binax account. What more could I do to retrieve the money lost?

Hey @JamesChanger and welcome to the Community!

I’m sorry to hear this happened to you. In case of theft, fraud or related matters I’d suggest you to contact your local police office. They might be able to help you further.

Also make sure to prevent any further loss: don’t transfer any (more) money, don’t sign forms if you don’t understand what they do, be reluctant when giving out personal information and update important passwords just to be sure.

Recovering lost or stolen cryptocurrency is due to the nature of cryptocurrency protocols sadly very hard. Try contacting the site where you obtained/traded your crypto to see if they can help, but please keep the advice in the paragraph above regarding preventing further loss in mind.

Thanks a lot @mpboom. I was lured step by step to a fishing website which is still running now. I think there are lots of sites like this and people did not pay attention when doing transactions partly because the usl is so similar to well-known official websites
