Voyager Scam?

My friend was messaged by someone on Instagram claiming he can make him a bunch of money if he invest in crypto through him.

I don’t know anything about crypto or bit mining but I told him it’s a scam. No way you’re gonna give some random stranger some money and you get 10% back guarantee.

He sleeps on it but he is still talking to this guy.
Now the guy is telling my friend to make a voyager account and to give him that account info……

I also have never used voyager but what is this guy’s deal?

My buddy thinks he’s gonna be rich and I’m just at a loss of how this can be legit?

    Your friend will lose everything in his acct. Someone posted a similar situation and his entire coin base acct was emptied. Have your friend read some of the crypto scams on the sub-Reddit scams.

  2. Any rando contacting you with investment ideas is trying to scamming you.

    I’m trying to explain this to him!! I’ve showed him several posts and explain ….is it the “pig slaughtering” scam concept? He just doesn’t believe me. I can’t belive what an idiot he is….

    This is how you prove it is a scam: Use a compound interest calculator like this [https://www.thecalculatorsite.com/finance/calculators/compoundinterestcalculator.php](https://www.thecalculatorsite.com/finance/calculators/compoundinterestcalculator.php)

    The scammer usually promises 10% return in a week, anything longer than that and it sounds too boring. Put in $1,000 as an initial investment. Enter 10% for the interest and change the interval to weekly. Just for fun, change the investment time to 5 years.

    Spoiler alert: In just 5 years with only that initial $1,000 investment, at 10% weekly they’d have enough money to single handedly pay off the national debt and still be the richest person on the world. $57,822,669,934,248

    If that sounds like a realistic scenario to your friend, then there’s no helping or convincing them that this is a scam.

    Voyager just manages crypto accounts. It doesn’t do any investing. Ask your friend this: if someone called him up and asked him to open up a regular bank account, put money in it, then send him his bank card and pin# would he do it? Because that’s literally what this scammer is asking him to do.

    I can’t even count how many posts on this sub start like this. Lots, anyway. Pretty much every day.

    But I *can tell* you they all end like this:

    Can someone please help? He sent them/deposited all his savings, thousands of dollars, and now he can’t get it back. What can he do??

    And the sad answer to *that* is:

    Sorry. Nothing. The money is gone.
