Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
If you have any questions, please let us know by commenting below.
Is it feasible for me to assist in the recovery of my assets on my own?
Yes, but when disputing a fraudulent transaction with the bank, you want to do it right the first time. Providing erroneous information, failing to speak in a language that your bank understands, or failing to complete the process entirely may all significantly reduce your chances. If you still want to give it another go, we can advise you on whether it’s worthwhile. We will apply professional techniques, experience, and, most importantly, language that your bank and, if required, the scam brokerage will understand. This is to maximize your chances of recovery.
Are cryptocurrencies recoverable?
Yes and No. You cannot reverse a transaction with cryptocurrencies like you can with payments sent via credit cards or bank wire. Therefore, if you sent to a wallet address that does not exist then, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do. However, if a hacker or scammer took your cryptocurrency, a certified cryptocurrency investigator can track your cryptocurrency to obtain the identity and location of the person who has the cryptocurrency. Then a quality investigation or legal firm can pursue them to assist in the recovery of your funds.
In terms of time, what are my constraints?
You may have more time than you think, or your bank may feel you do. A chargeback request for a Visa® or Mastercard® credit card transaction must be made within 60, 90, or 120 days, depending on the circumstances. A service-related chargeback request, such as those we review for binary options and forex scams, may be submitted up to 540 days after the transaction. A request for a wire transfer recall may be lodged up to 540 days or two years from the payment date, depending on particular requirements.
Is it possible to initiate a recall even if I authorized the transactions?
Yes, if the funds you authorized were for a service you did not receive.
Will this have an effect on my banking relationship?
Most certainly not. The disputes and fraud team at your bank are dedicated to assisting in these matters, a professional can guide you and the bank through the process, giving you the highest chance of success.
