Scam Description

I was given promo codes from a crypto currency start up website. It was enough for .48 bitcoin. It’s free at first. In order to withdraw your balance you have to verify your account with a deposit of .0005 bitcoin then in order to up the amount of balance you can withdraw you have to make another deposit of .003 bitcoin. That’s as far as I got as I didn’t have anymore to lose. There is a customer service chat bubble where I spoke with Tony & Loren. Tony seemed helpful at first so I took the risk but he didn’t tell me I’d need to upgrade to a premier account to withdraw. He said I could withdraw immediately. Then when I got upset he blocked my account and it logged me out completely which I cant log back in now.
