CoinBuck or Coinbucker – Scam! I need help!!

I am stupid enough to put my money to invest crypto through CoinBuck (now trading as Coinbucker) and tried to withdraw the entire fund.

Long story short, I was convinced to open up local crypto platform and transfer money to CoinBuck and this person has helped me with short term operation. After I read some feeds on Reddit and other website, I was scared and tried to recoup my fund so I have requested the withdrawal.

And now I have received an urgent notice from them (I have removed the monetary value):

Dear Coin Buck users:

    This is a standard !crypto scam. You won’t be seeing this money again. You’re not in violation of any laws, you’ve been working with a scammer manipulating the “funds” in your “account” to string you along the whole time.

    Beware of !recovery scammers who will be on here making you promises they have no intention or ability to keep.

    **Fake Investment Scams that use Fake Cryptocurrency Websites:**

    Fake cryptocurrency websites controlled by scammers are becoming more and more common. Sometimes the scam begins with a romance scammer who claims that they can help the victim invest in cryptocurrency. Victims are told to buy cryptocurrency of some kind using a legitimate cryptocurrency exchange, and then they are told to send their cryptocurrency to a website wallet address where it will be invested. Sometimes the scam begins with a notice that the victim won cryptocurrency, and it is in their account on a website. In either case, the scammer controls the website, so they make it look like there is money in the victim’s account on their website. Then the scammer (or the scammer pretending to be someone official who is associated with the website) tells the victim that they have to put more money into the website before they can get their money out of the website. Sometimes the scammer will let the victim “remove” some of their money from the website (actually it’s just the scammer sending some of the victim’s money back to the victim) as a way to make the website seem legitimate, before asking the victim to “reinvest” even more of their money. Of course all of the money sent by the victim has gone directly into the scammer’s personal wallet, and any additional money sent by the victim to retrieve their money from the website will also go directly into the scammer’s personal wallet, and all of the information about money being held by the website was totally fake.

    Adding my experience in case it helps anyone else:
    I fell for this scam.
    Tl;Dr – I got my money out by saying that if I could prove that the site was safe and easy to withdraw from, I could get my dad to invest a ton of money.

    Story: I was randomly messaged by some Chinese woman (scam alert, I know) and she said it was fate that we met, and then very quickly got me excited for crypto. Hella embarrassing because in hindsight, how the hell did I not figure this out immediately.

    Anyways, I transferred $1000CAD onto the platform through ETH, as I was instructed. She helped me with a short term trade and hey… I made $40 in only a few minutes.
    That was when the person said they had something else to do and that we could do more trading tomorrow. they encouraged me to find more money for the platform because that will help boost my earnings.

    Right after this, I found this thread and panicked. $1000 is not a small amount for me. I went back and tried to remove the funds and send it back to my wallet but nothing was working. So I messaged the customer service person (quite possibly the same person scamming me) that I wanted to remove my money so I could show my dad how safe and easy this was. He would certainly invest a LOT if I could show him it was easy to get your money out.

    so the CS person bent the rules and allowed me to take my money back out. I got lucky, for sure. I blocked and reported the WhatsApp number. the person actually reached out with another number asking why I had blocked her. but I just blocked that one too.

    I hope this story can help others if they have gone too far down a path they should have never gone down in the first place.
