Cryptocurrency Scam Recovery Service

Helping clients to recover stolen cryptocurrencies has become one of our most popular services. Cryptocurrency scams were considered the second most risky type of scam in 2019. The only reason crypto scams came second place was because of the limited exposure to the general public as crypto adoption is still very young. All-in-all cryptocurrency-related crime proceeds exceeded $4.5 billion in 2019.

Why Cryptocurrency Scams are so Effective

Fraudsters have firmly attached themselves onto the crypto scene for three important reasons.
Lack of Regulation

Because there is a lack of formal regulation protecting the cryptocurrency industry, no one expects firms to be authorized or licensed to carry out activities and there are no guidelines or best practices to follow.

A Naive Audience

Each day more people start to discover and adopt the idea of using cryptocurrencies in their everyday life. Those who are new to the idea of digital assets have limited understanding or awareness to protect themselves which makes them easy targets for con artists.

Relative Anonymity

Bank accounts, checks or electronic money is incredibly hard to use anonymously and hiding the proceeds of crime is complicated and expensive. Bitcoin addresses don’t need to be registered in someone's name which makes it easier to get away with fraud using cryptocurrencies.
