Scam Description

Kevin and I had a mutual friends which ended up being his nephew. I had messaged his nephew, Jason to see how they were connected. Jason said that that was his uncle and I told him that we were going to reach out to him about investing and he said that he saw that he had his uncle was doing that but I hadn’t asked him about it but to go ahead and ask him about it and that it should be OK. So my husband reached out to Kevin and we ended up putting $1800 into crypto and set everything up with their company and were making profits. Kevin would reach out to my husband every day and ask how everything was going and my husband felt that he had a good relationship with him and all was going well. By the end of week two we were told that we needed to add at least $250 to our accounts because our number of transactions had been Mets and they continue making profits we needed to put in more money. So we did and The day, we attempted to cash out we were told that he needed $1500 in order to make sure that we are who we say we are. I told my husband that sounds fishy because we’ve already verified who we were. I told my husband that if he felt that he could trust this guy to go ahead and do it and I guess we’ll see if it’s a scam or not. My husband still had contact with Kevin until the morning after and then Kevin ghosted him. No deposit into our checking accounts no nothing. iMessage Kevin and told him that we were absolutely devastated and then I was ghosted as well. I reached out to Jason and I gave him a heads up or not to try his uncles business and that we were scammed I just want to make sure other people out there know that this is a scam. His Facebook looks legit.
