FidelityPal company having individuals targetting people on Telegram
An individual on Telegram (username: @MolekJj22) privately messaged me telling about fidelitypal and added me to the group ((name: Official fidelitypal telegram...) and has almost 4,000 members in it). This person connected me with their friend on Telegram (@Maxisjjj) who also pointed me towards fidelitypal.
So I registered an account with fidelitypal and invested in some bitcoin expecting to get a good return in 24 hours as the testimonials on the Telegram page were saying (including the official looking website).
The website is: fidelitypal.net
They have online 24/7 support chat on their home page. I was talking with someone on their online chat. I invested $200 expecting a return of 20% in 24 hours but did not get it so I contacted this support chat to follow this up. I was told that because my amount invested when received was less than $200 in bitcoin I had to try again because the bot they were using for these investments only executed payouts for amounts of $200 or above so I sent more money. I was then told if I also invested $320 in bitcoin I could become an admin so I invested this. I was then told if I invested $2,000 I'd get $7,200 back. So I did this and then I was told that they had already programmed my payment at $11,200 so I needed to deposit another $2,000 to get that $11,200. I replied saying why have you done this without asking first if I could afford another $2,000? I did not get a straight answer and could not proceed any further unless I gave more money at which point this scam was very obvious to me. Here are the bitcoin transaction IDs:
