I urge you to contact a professional hacker if you are a victim of a scam. I lost a huge sum of money to a crypto scammer who lured me to invest in what I later found out to be a scam, but the good news is that HACKWEST AT WRITEME DOT COM recovered all the money back to my blockchain wallet. The fraudster stole about $468k in USDT, BTC, Ethereum and Sol. I strongly recommend West and his team if you’re a victim of crypto scam.
