I have a problem.
IS this a massive scam?
I invested £3,000 all in all with digital-miners.com the trader kept telling me that I could w/d my money anytime with no problem. Today I was told by my trader that I was no longer going to be trading with them as ''there were too many investors'' and a blockchain broker or someone like that would ring me, when I kept asking my trader about transferring money, he just kept saying the other person would ring me and kept avoiding the question.
When the other person rang me they said I had the money/bitcoin in my account but would need to send 10% £3,700 in advance to get the £37,000 in my account and it was now in a locked wallet. I can still trade with the money as I tried, but he says I can't get the money or bitcoin without paying the fee to liquidate it. I told him I don't need him to liquidate it, he can just send the Bitcoin to my Exodus account, but he said he can't do that without the fee as it is now in a locked wallet.
Anyone can help with advice on this would be appreciated. It was not done consensually and I don't understand why a trader would just drop me like that with £37,000 in my account unless it is to try to scam me out of the £3,700 to try to get the £37,000 that will never appear.
UPDATE... The guy who rang me about liquidating my funds has now said Digital-miners.com would allow the money to be refunded back to my account if I took down the post I made on trust pilot.. he said they would ring me about it.. I am still waiting for the call.
