Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!

I am fine with waiting for the right response. Just as long as I get one in the end

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you. I am just reviewing your question. This is an email service so there may be delays when responding.

Can you please explain your situation a little more?

Long story short I deposited 250 pounds into a trading website and then wanted to take the money out. Then the company called me and told me that I needed to pay 300 Euros for a trading license which I did reluctantly. A couple of days later I got the 250 back, but I wanted to know if the 2nd transaction was genuine or if it was a scam.

How did you pay the £250 and then 300 Euros?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I made a transaction on the website through the direction of the person on the other end of the phone. It gave me the option to transfer 250-10000. I chose the lowest because it seems the least risky, then on another phone call conversation a couple of days later, I was directed to another website called Wisenex where I was directed to pay 300 Euros

Did you pay by CREDIT card to them?

It sounds like a scam to me.

You should report it to the Police.

I think you have lost your money, you might get some back.

But I am sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

But it is is scam.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
That is ok. That was what I was suspecting anyway. I just wanted to ask to clarify my suspicions. Thank you for your honesty. And thank you for the link. I just want to ask another thing. If I contact the police through this website, will they come to my house? The thing is I don't want to draw too much attention to the issue and would rather contact the police confidentially through emails

Sure.

You can go via Action Fraud

Does that clarify?
