CASE STUDY - HOW EUROTECH RETRIEVED LIFE SAVINGS FOR SCAMMED CRYPTO INVESTOR



Over the past few years the cryptocurrency industry has grown exponentially. With the value of digital currencies like bitcoin increasing, many people are now investing in multiple cryptocurrencies for their chance to become financially free due to the high number of crypto assets popping up overnight promising “to become the new Bitcoin.”


The problem is, the extremely high increases in value of cryptocurrencies in such a short period of time has made it a lucrative opportunity for cybercriminals. And as such, people have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars to fake investments that they simply heard about on the internet as being “the next big thing.”


Recovering scammed or stolen cryptocurrencies is often an extremely difficult task as it requires the services of a credible cyber security firm that can carry out digital location strategies to recover your digital assets. Eurotech Cyber Security have been investigating digital asset crime cases in the crypto space for over a decade. Eurotech Cyber Security has successfully investigated over 1,600 cases and have constantly adapted to an ever changing market whilst becoming one of the world's top cyber investigation resources.


Head of Cybersecurity Mark Reading and the team of dedicated investigators and tech experts have a combined 60 years of experience in cybersecurity and digital location strategies. Eurotech Cyber Security specialise in digital forensics and digital asset crime investigations.


This brings us to an incredible recovery story of Ms Linda Stevens, a single mother of 2, who had invested over $400,000 of the proceeds of her property sale into Ethereum, the second largest cryptocurrency to Bitcoin. She came across a company online that advertised huge returns for day trading her money. Naturally, she jumped at the opportunity as they promised her a 5% weekly return, which was more than what her fixed-rate bond investments were making her annually. She initially invested $150,000 to start with, and after two weeks of seeing her account balance increase by 10% was convinced to invest a further $250,000. She was delighted to see after two more weeks that her account balance had increased to $456,500. She was so pleased she even recommended friends and family who ended up also investing in tune of $100,000.


Unfortunately for Linda, she soon found that the frequent emails & telephone calls came to a halt, and she could not get in touch with the company after multiple attempts to contact them after she could no longer log into her account. This all happened a few weeks after transferring the company her Ethereum and being told they were doing great. Ms. Stevens got in touch with Eurotech Cyber Security, and within 15 days, the company was able to recover $380,000 of the $400,000 she had invested.


When speaking to Linda she said: “I lost all hope until Eurotech got involved. They literally got me back my life savings. The money I invested was to buy home for me and my kids. Life’s been hard enough these last few years with the the pandemic, so I felt like it was all over when this happened. The Eurotech team is truly amazing at what they do. I am forever grateful to have had them help me.”
