Urgent warning against Blockchain fund recovery scam!

Blockchain fund recovery scam
Spread financial intelligence

Whistleblower Credits: We would like to thank our whistleblowers for their reports and insights, which help us expose scammers and their payment processors. Together we can make a difference in cyberspace. Together we are an invincible force.

We have received information from our whistleblowers about a fund recovery scam currently underway with a company called Blockchain Access UK Ltd. The scammers send messages via email and instant messenger services to people claiming that the UK FCA would authorize them to recover funds for victims. They would have discovered Bitcoins of the person in question on a wallet and would like to refund them. For this purpose, however, the person in question would have to deposit money in advance via CoinDeck for processing costs. Please do not fall for it.

The fraud narrative

The scammers target the victims’ greed and wave large sums of money, sometimes more than €70,000. The callers claim to be refund agents of Blockchain. In their messages they use the data of the UK Companies House registered Blockchain Asset UK Ltd and The Foremost Currency Group Limited, a company authorized by the FCA as an e-Money institution. The victims make the deposits via the licensed Slovak CoinDeck, allegedly involved in the scam. The scammers use Team Viewer to access their victims’ computers and cell phones.

We currently do not know if the company registered at the UK Companies House is the operator of this scam. The scammers may be simply misusing their data.

Report scammers

If you have any pertinent information about this Blockchain Fund Recovery scam involving Blockchain Access UK Ltd, please let us know via our whistleblower system, Whistle42.

      Jason Lee Jones here. As I already told you under your name there is 31,195.57 USD coming from your investment which you have made through the not regulated company. GMI Trading Platform.

      We are calling you from FSCS (Financial service compensation scheme). Having direct partnership with blockchain.com; which is taking responsibility about all the technical part of the case.

      That company was trading without your permission and managed to get a profit of 31,195.57 USD. Right now these funds are on blockchain’s frozen account. Our goal is to unfreeze account and send this money to your bank through a new account.

      what we have to do to withdraw the funds? First of all we need to verify you in the system, for example we will need any kind of Crypto merchant where we will be able to send you BTC, Binance is preferable, after that for you to make sure that this money really exist we will send you Frozen funds to your binance, where you will have an access to the funds. after you receive this BTC to your binance after that we will start to unfroze funds, However I believe we will need to take a necessary evil action.

      Here is the link of my regulations :
      https://register.fca.org.uk/s/individual?id=003b000000LVTz2AAH

      Please make sure to reply to this Email.
      sincerely,
      Jason Lee Jones

      I am happy to be of assistance, Tomorrow at 7 pm Australia time will call you back.

      Kind regards,
      Jason

    Justin Scott, purportedly an employee of Payback, is asking for personal information so that he can connect me to Blockchain Access UK Ltd so they can return over $1M in bitcoins that my wife, now deceased, supposedly lost. My wife spent lots of money, so the offer is not totally incredible, but it is incredible for practical purposes.

  3. Kosmas says:

    I got a phone from Ioannis Krestas that he works for Blockchain Access UK Ltd in order to request a claim of 10.000 Euro in Bitcoins currency.

    1. Roger says:

      I had an identical email on 1st December 2023. My “crypto wallet” contained £82285.49 in crypto.
      My “dormant account” needed to be “reactivated” and I would be guided through the recovery process to enable this amount to be paid into my bank account.
      BUT! I will have to deposit £500 into crypto before I can this.
      I have never had a crypto wallet.
      I replied to the email informing the sender “ Do not reply to this email as all replies will automatically be diverted to BIN.”
      I then received three phone calls but blocked each one.
      Using the “who calls me” website I input the phone numbers and found that they all came from the Manchester area.
      Over a year ago I was fooled into crypto trading following a drop down offer on Facebook that said Elon Musk was creating a crypto trading scheme and urged investors to get in at the start. THIS WAS A LIE!
      I fell for this and invested £200 into a bank called Gammaron this allowed me to trade using the Bullexo trading platform. Within 24 hours I realised my mistake and managed to cancel my account. Only after threatening them with a poor review.
      Thankfully I have not lost any money as the Gameron payment was stopped by my bank or they took too long to get my money before I cancelled my debit card.
      My details have been passed on to the above business.
      I think they are all connected.
      Also please be aware of name changes i.e. Bullexo.com maybe the same as Bullexo.net
      Also read reviews on Trust Pilot re Bullexo and be prepared for a shock!

  4. John H H James says:

    Can you help. I have been approached by Blockchain support about my frozen Blockchain account with BTC400 in. The account has not been used for two years as I lost my login details two years ago when my hard drive on my computer packed up and the information was not recovered. I am due to receive a phone call later today at 12.00.noon from a wallet recovery expert! who is said to be able to recover access to my account for a % 0.09 fee which they will subtract from my account. The amount to be made available has increased by about £9,000 over the weekend. This all seems plausible to me but it also has a scam flag waving as far as I can see. What do you recommend.
    Regards, John James.

    1. tamir says:

      Hi there; without any further details, we cannot provide a serious recommendation. However, please be careful with fund recovery experts. We do not recommend to give them your login credentials. It your funds are frozen on Blockchain.com, you should contact their support. We know that these guys are strange. See our reports on Blockchain.com.

    2. Rudolf says:

      Every second day calling me Lian from FCA. It wants to return the money from the blockchain and it wants to connect to my phone via AnyDesc or teamwiewer +442045930468

  5. Zoh says:

    I get phone calls from a lady calling herself Catherine from mobile number 07915143330 saying that she wants to help me recover some bitcoin funds. I never been involved in any cripto, but still want to understand how the scam works. So I asked her to send me the details by email (see below). Now, it is clear they want me to transfer them 1% of the amount to reactivate the wallet, which i never had. Surely, I am not planning to do it. But will offer her to transfer me 1% so i can transfer it to the wallet and if it works out then I will return her 10%. Lets see what she says.

    Hello
    I hope this email finds you well!

    This is Catherine Rose Roberts from Blockchain Support Team.
    Further to our previous phone conversation, I am sending you below all the details needed related to your account.

    Your total available balance in our system is 4.2 BTC and converted to standard GBP is
    £93,951.62.
    Your account’s status is “Dormant”.
    WALLET ID: bc1qjjddxfvatxfwmkyzhuryagwyey9089ev8w09xq
    Look it up on blockchain.com

    Since your account is frozen and its actual status is dormant our department came out with three suggestions based on our terms & conditions for dormant accounts.

    1- To reactivate and withdraw your funds as soon as possible and deactivate the account.
    2- To reactivate and continue trading.
    3- To deactivate the account and lose all the funds.

    In the case of choosing option 1 or 2, the reactivation process is the same.
    You’ll need to show an action into your Blockchain Wallet by placing a symbolic amount of 1% of the total BTC Balance using a Certified Crypto Exchange.

    NOTE: The 1% order placed as a Positive Transaction in your wallet, should never be considered as a “Payment” but just a deposit under your details after the verification process takes place via our system.

    Lastly, the amount that you are transferring in your BTC Wallet, will be placed into your final balance and you can withdraw it as soon as your case will be handed to the Refund Department.

    The wallet will be active instantly in real time and one of our agents will guide you through the steps in order to avoid any possible mistakes.

    After the reactivation is done you will be guided through the Withdrawal Procedures by the “Refund Department” and you can have the full services of the Blockchain Crypto – Experts.

    Looking forward to your reply!

    Best Wishes,

    I just got a call from them too (+447904773064) ms Megan Harris saying that I have a deactivated account that needs to be activated since I have over €100000 in the account. I only have to deposit 0.02 BTC to reactivate it. I asked her to send me the link to the deactivated account and I was told that she could show it to me by planning a google meet meeting. I asked for her supervisor’s name, Mr. Alfred Meeks, and she was so ready to put him through. I told her that I would call Blockchain myself and then she got frustrated. These scammers are all over the place. She is actually waiting for me to call her back! Please don’t let greed deceive you!

    Dear Mr. xxxx
    I hope this email finds you well.

    This is Joshua Anthony from the Blockchain Support Team.
    Further to our previous phone conversation, I am sending you below all the details needed related to your account.

    Account holder details:
    Wallet ID: bc1qjjddxfvatxfwmkyzhuryagwyey9089ev8w09xq
    Look it up on https://www.blockchain.com/
    You are capable of searching without logging in as you are no longer an active user.
    Your total balance in our system is 4.2 BTC and converted to standard EUR is €106,346.
    – The amount is variable based on the Bitcoin movement.

    Your account might have been created as a result of the following reasons:
    1. This account may have been created from your Previous Online Trading experiences or the funds that you lost while doing Online Trading.
    2. In 2017, Bitcoin and Blockchain were everywhere (Commercials, Platforms, and all over the Internet), and 30% of our clients registered without even knowing the results.

    In this situation, you have 3 options:
    1-Reactivate the account and withdraw the funds
    2-Reactivate and start Online Trading.
    3-Close the account for good.

    The bad news is that your account has been blocked automatically due to an Unauthorized Withdrawal Attempt and the only person allowed to reactivate this account is the “Account Name Holder” which in this case is you.

    Looking forward to your reply!

    Thank you in advance!

      Hi Joshua, from your email address, we assume that you are not connected with Blockchain.com. Moreover, from the FCA register, we cannot see that Joshua Anthony would be connected to a crypto or fund recovery company. Thus, we conclude, that you are part of the crypto fund recovery scam!

    I’m grateful that Gary McKinnon, a cryptocurrency recovery expert, was able to recover the bitcoin I lost when I unintentionally transferred funds via my Website to the incorrect wallet. Just a few weeks after transmitting $101,000 worth of Bitcoins to the wrong wallet address. I at first thought I had swiped away everything. But just as I was about to lose it, an associate of mine suggested Gary McKinnon, a hacking group that was able to locate and recover my cryptos. I genuinely appreciate the excellent service provided by this company because they are so helpful and dependable. If you were victimized by scammers and lost cryptocurrency, you may easily contact Gary McKinnon by email at: [email protected], Also through WhatsApp:+1(507) 217-9172.

    1. I have been very badly scammed by this Emily Lombardi P; a very sick kind of scammer who talks very calm and smooth in order to steal and rip off somebody – a very dangerous person who is using all her female talents to make you think you are dealing with a true representative of Blockchain – BUT SHE IS NOT. She is like the one making the animal feel calm just before getting slaughtered. Watch out!!

    I am writing this review to express my sincere gratitude to this NFT and USDT recovery hacker for all that he did for me during one of the most stressful and painful times in my life. His professionalism and guidance, at a time when I questioned myself how dumb I was to give out $1.2 Million Usdt to an NFT trading scammer, but after I met 360 forensic limited they helped me to accept that so long there is a problem, there will always be a solution. He provided me with irrefutable proof that strengthened my doubts about the possibility of recovering or tracking lost BTC or USDT. I have no doubt about the decisions I made afterward. It took a while but success was achieved in recovering all the USDT Tokens I had sent. At a time when I felt like my whole world was tumbling down around me, their concern was truly appreciated. I highly recommend their services and while I hope never to need him again, I will be sure to call him if need be.

    It’s really unfortunate to have seen people losing their BTC, Ethereum and USDT. I was hearing stories until I fell into the trap when I knew that it’s real. But that was not the end, I tried to reach many hackers but I wasn’t successful until I met NEXUSINVESTIGATION dot COM who helped me recover my Bitcoin after a short tiMe i trusted them and I was patient, since I testified how they helped a person in such a situation. Thank you for your great work.

    I started investing my money with a company that trades Bitcoin after looking at their website and it really made sense to me, though I did not jump in investing a whole lot at first but as time went by after I received a couple of payouts within the first month of my investment, I decided to invest more money into the platform since it was a verified company but little did I know that I knew nothing about the company , they were just luring me to invest more with the payouts and I ended up losing £37,000 to them. I laid a complaint to the police but they couldn’t do anything about it, I then tried doing a research by myself to see if there was anything I could do and I came across this incredible hacker on an article about hackers and how you can retrieve your money back with just few information you provide and I didn’t hesitate at all reaching to him. Within just a week he was able to recover my Bitcoin in whole again, what else could I say other than being grateful to him.

    Hello everyone, and thanks for your reports.
    I had exactly the same experience reported above. in summary:

    1. I first received a phone call from Allison Whiteley from BLOCKCHAIN ACCESS UK. She new my name and email address, saying that her company has been trying to contact me by email to return funds from an inactivated account.
    2. I told her that I didn’t know about that account and would need to check if this was a scam. that show should email me again by email. first red flag!
    3. she did email me right away, but I confirmed that I’ve never received an email from that company before. second red flag!
    4. I googled the company and found this website reporting the same thing that happened to me. third red flag!
    5. Since then, I’ve received repeated phone calls from the following number that I did’t respond to:
    +43 660 4808897
    +43 650 6562022

    On May 03, Victoria Bennet from the company Blockchain Access UK LTD called me and persuaded me that she can help me via screen sharing “Any Desk” open a crypto trading account. After VB made this, she stole /transferred (9.3 k EUR) from my Swedish accounts, but gave me neither the crypto account number nor the Wallet ID.
    ———————————————————————————————
    After VB transferred /stole the money she phoned me 30 times within some hours and sent an Email:
    “Hello xxxxx
    I have been trying to reach you all afternoon, but no success.
    If there is no problem with you, then please try to pick up the phone when I call you because you are really risking losing not only the Bitcoins that you have in O U R company, but also Y O U R money that you have in your bank account.—–LET ME JUST REVERSE THE TRANSACTIONS BACK TO YOUR ACCOUNTS AND YOU CAN GO FURTHER WITH YOUR LIFE —-
    You should understand the importance of this procedures and be correct with the appointments.
    Regards,
    Victoria Bennet.”
    ——————————————————————————————–
    “Let me just reverse the transactions back to your accounts and you can go further with your LIFE!” did never happen” Perhaps Victoria Bennet converted a sumb of the 9.3 k EUR to BTC or not? And the mentioned Bitcoins above is a big fraud, as Coin Stats confirm: “Thus, the balance in a manual portfolio doesn’t mean anything. So don’t fall into the trap”
    ——————————————————————————————–
    Instead the company’s Finance Department Director JM scared me with telling about: “a possible jail for me”, and ” we know a lot of you as person ”, and “he has all the connections to the Swedish tax authority” and ” “instead of fighting together with my bank and my lawyer to get my money back I should, at my age of 82, chilling in the sun somewhere in the south of Malmö or Gothenburg/ Sweden.” He pushed me to open this “frozen” crypto account with my Swedish Bank ID, which I not followed. This, because indirectly was M:s intention to continue to scam me.
    ——————————————————————————————–
    At the moment I am blocked from both VB and JM.
    Together with the mentioned names in the earlier commentarys above it seems there is a lot of criminell activitys in this company.

    Interesting how they get so much information about you. I lost a lot of money to IBC exchange (London). Robert Howard Smith CRD 4396797 of Blockchain Access UK Ltd claims to have access to IBCs accounts. All a lie. IBC has disappeared, the amounts are wrong and no accounts have been found. Suspect IBC gave Blockchain my details! I live in Australia. A very smooth operation. I checked his credentials and found he (unless he is impersonating Robert) to have worked in the US in 2014. non registered and unemployed.

  26. Edward says:

    Has anyone any information about IBC exchange (London). Has anyone successfully retrieved their investments. Where did they operate from and where has the money gone? Who can I take to court or sue? In what country? Love to get hold of Mike Kaminsky or Jessica Stewart (probably not their right name) or any of it employees in a single room, I have not come across such low life and I have mixed around.

    I live in sweden and they managed to call me on a swedish number +46 0762259046 and tells me that i have a small bitcoin untouched in my wallet that I created 2016.

    I have not created any account or ever owning a bitcoin.

    Then they e mail me with instructions on how I can refund my amount if I still feel to collect the money that is there just laying for me.

  28. Rob says:

    They didn’t harass me for 6 months, but today they called again. This time a Dutch mobile number (+31 6 51902620) was used, but English spoken.
    So still active… 🙁
