    A Romance Scam: I Was Scammed by Knight Service Group for $1.44M

    Abstract:An American investor with no experience in forex trading got scammed recently.

      An American investor with no experience in forex trading got scammed recently. The man, who first struggled with a romance scam and then fell into the trap of forex speculation, exposed the tricks of the illegal platform Knight Service Group to WikiFX.

      Investors account of the scam

      I live in the US. I was lured by a single mom named Nancy, who I met on a dating app. She immediately wanted to chat on WhatsAPP. She said she was working with an “account manager” named Bozza. I was tricked and was led to believe I needed a minimum amount for certain investments and to reduce my commission. I made some profitable “trades” on the Knight Service Group platform. The thing was I borrowed money to trade. I borrowed twice- $400K and $330K. The scam should have been evident to me then, because I had to use outside money, instead of money already in the account, to pay off the loan!

      Nancy said she'd make enough from a business deal to cover what I couldn't pay for the $330K loan. Of course, the “business deal” fell through. She was the “guarantor” for the loan. Bozza said if we're late, we'd have to each pay $500/day in late fees. But then he said that her late fee was $5000/day! I agreed with Nancy to pay him $90K late fees. When they realized I had lost interest in trading, Nancy tried to get me to pay $200K to withdraw $2M (10% commission fee). That's when I saw it was a scam! She told me that withdrawing less had a 20% fee. When I said I didn't want to withdraw money, she tried really hard to get me to do it. Then she started telling me I should give $200K so she could withdraw. She seemed fixated on getting me to pay $200K. At one point, she said she'd get money from her parents and then said her dad had a heart attack.

      Nancy would send me so many nice pictures of “herself”. Her “daughter” was really cute. She would say how special I am. Her “daughter” even knew about me. Ive attached a picture of her. I don't expect to get any money back, but I hope this protects others from getting scammed.
