Never pay to receive a withdrawal. If they wanted to send you money, they could deduct the fees from the sum they claim you own in your account. It's a common scam to be asked for money so that you withdraw your funds.

If bitcoin is converted to fiat money on an exchange, the exchange has irrefutable knowledge of your identity because they require the account name and bank account name to match. Use Bisq and other non-KYC Exchanges. Also follow the best practices mentioned in this comment: Don't reuse addresses. Use coinjoin and payjoin when required. Run and use your ...
