we are 200-300 people that have been scammed, the amount of the scam is about half a million dollars, but we have enter to their wallets on blockchain and they are still accepting payments, scamming more people, considering all the other scams, the amount could be millions.
We don't have their real names, we asummed that the ones that they gave us are not the real ones, we have their Skype accounts and cellphone number
Get local counsel that specializes in fraud and get local law enforcement involved as they may well do much of the leg work for your civil case.
A lot more than that are scammed, I spoke to the FBI and Interpol last week about a client scammed out 500k, and the FBI said it was about their 50th call of the week, and they don't have the resources to pursue.
The CFTC and Alabama Securities Commission are your best bet to contact. You should retain counsel and file a whistleblower submission with the CFTC (you will need counsel, as w/o counsel your submission will not be confidential). It works much like the Dodd-Frank submissions with the SEC, and you may be entitled to a "bounty" on what the feds collect in fines. The ASC is aggressive and does pursue things like this.
The foregoing is not legal advice nor is it in any manner whatsoever meant to create or impute an attorney/client relationship.
The problem is getting the identity and jurisdiction over those perpetrating the scam. But another avenue is to look at those you purchased the currency through if you used a broker or bank. Certain things need to exist for such entities to have liability, but it may be worth investigating.
Please keep in mind that we do not represent you and that more information would be needed to fully and accurately evaluate your case. Further, you should seek representation because your matter is governed by strict time limits.
You're awesome very good firms that are dealing with this area for private clients. However, we cannot except cases or make recommendations on this AVVO service
Contact the FBI or location direction. You may want to find out who the registered agent is. If they are in certain states such as Delaware, they have to abide by a standard of conduct when working for companies and managing their address, mail, phone calls, and most importantly, bank account. You could put pressure on this party.
