Can you help me?
I am currently unable to withdraw my 10 BTC in this XYZ exchange (shows proof images), can you help me to withdraw my BTC to your wallet, I will pay you hefty 30% fee.”
now you think, 30% fee of 10 BTC is 3 BTC itself, a quite big amount, you get tempted- after all, God finally listened to your prayers and have sent an angel with a lot of money and seeking your help.
You quickly rush on the offer, visit that unknown exchange and saw BTC just sitting there to be taken out. You feel like your fortune is gonna turn around and that you can finally buy that car, have that foreign vacation you deserve, Modernize your house and what not. Since there are like infinite dreams to fulfil, if you got such money freely.
You put your bitcoin wallet address and hit withdraw.
there is a pop up saying something like –
” For security purposes funds can be withdrawn only to addresses that are verified, to verify your wallet please send 0.02 BTC to undermentioned verification wallet.”
well, that is a temporary pause on your thoughts. you have that much small BTC amount and if a site is saying its for verification it must be true since its 10 BTC to withdraw after all.
What will you do, in the above case?- will you send the money or just leave it.
