Some crypto kidnapped stories, they all was lucky to be reunited with their families.

Just at 14 years old this teenager made a fortune in crypto trading and when he took to social media about his success. Bad faith followed he was kidnapped and the kidnappers called his mother, demanding £10,000 ($13,738). If she didn’t pay, they said, “her son wouldn’t be going home,” like in Brazil, a 19-year-old crypto trader was shot dead after flaunting his newfound wealth online. (His last Instagram post included the red Porsche in which he was killed.)

A crypto trader from Hong Kong was kidnapped the 39-year-old criminals asked his family to pay a ransom of HK$30 million. the cryptocurrency trader was lured to Kowloon Bay by a buyer he met online, who is interested in buying Tether cryptocurrency for HK$4 million.

In Pakistan Lahore a couple, a Swiss man and a German woman 6,300 euros and 1.86 Bitcoin worth Rs14,700,00 into his account and further blackmailed them of transferring Rs300million more into their account.

Another kidnapping of a man caught up in a cryptocurrency investment scam. A 39 year old victim the kidnappers had initially asked the victim’s family to pay a ransom of $8 million, and later raised the amount to $30 million, but the family did not pay any amount. He was hurt but glad to say he returned home safely.

So you should be aware of the Ransomware is a type of malware from cryptovirology that threatens to publish the victim's personal data or perpetually block access to it unless a ransom is paid. Ransomware attacks are typically carried out using a Trojan disguised as a legitimate file that the user is tricked into downloading or opening when it arrives as an email attachment.

In 2020, the IC3 received 2,474 complaints identified as ransomware with adjusted losses of over $29.1 million.

That why you should avoid face-to-face trading with strangers. Don't disclose your finance with anyone and be more vigilant about your surroundings as well as take proper precautions.

This is very scary. That's why its important to stay humble and anonymous because there bad and evil people who does these nasty things. I am so sorry for the victims and to their families as well.
