When Antoine Montez saw my comment on, he sent me a request to become my friend on LinkedIn and asked me if I was trading my bitcoin. I told him that I was a holder, but that I was learning how to intrat/daily trade.
So we moved the conversation from LinkedIn to Whatsapp and he sent me the link on the WhatsApp and asked to sign up on e-tradebtx.com. I told him that I was not ready to sign up right away that I was not comfortable. I told them that I would do research before I sign up. After that, I did quick research, but I was not able to find anything that says that Antoine and e-tradebtx.com was a scam or anything like that.

On April 28th, after Antoine has been contacting me asking me if the sign had up, I went on the e-tradebtx.com
Then the lady behind the chat who calls herself “Merry Watts “ guided me to set up an account and to start sending my bitcoins investments to the following address:
Once you connect to their platform, in addition to popup on the main page showing the payment, everything looks legit, except that
I also sent my identity
So, on April 28th, 2020, I made the first transfer 0.1183687 ($1441.0CAD) to the blockchain address (it is like a bank account) mentioned above.
On April 30th, 2020
I made another transfer of 1.2328 BTC, equivalent to $CAD 14989.95 as I am writing this declaration.
Then 0.04 tbc
On May 2nd, I 0.74644361 BTC made another transfer from Paybis.com to e-tradebtx.com as asked by “Mery Watts”
The following shows charges by crypto.com on my credit card for the cryptocurrency I purchased:
I then went on the https://e-tradebtx.com
Platform to try to understand why I was required to make 2.7 BTC. I chatted with the person behind the chat and she/he had told me that it was in their policy. I refused to pay the required bitcoins.
Then, few minutes after, I received a message on WhatsApp, from Antoine Montez, saying that he knows what was going on. I had not spoken to him.
I tried to withdraw my bitcoins and I received a message from e-tradebtx.com saying that I need to pay 2.7 to withdraw my investment.
Although they initially requested me to pay 2.7bitcoins, they reduced the price up to 0.4btc, then 0.3btc. But I refused.
Since then, I have been trying to recover my investment with no luck. BEWARE!
