Scam contentsI am writing to report a scam that I fell victim to through the edaytask platform. I believe it is important to bring this matter to your attention in order to prevent others from experiencing the same fraudulent activity.
It all began when I met an individual on the Mingle 2 website who expressed interest in me. We exchanged phone numbers and started communicating. This person claimed that they wanted to visit me and meet my family, as well as explore Egypt together. Initially, I explained that due to financial constraints, I couldn't accommodate anyone at the moment. However, they proposed a business opportunity, stating that they worked for Amazon and earned $3,500 per month.
Intrigued by the prospect of making money, I agreed to join their business venture. They guided me through opening an account on the okx website for buying and selling currencies. The real issue began when they introduced me to the edaytask platform, where completing tasks would result in payments and profits. As I progressed through the tasks, my earnings reached $178 before suddenly freezing.
At this point, the person informed me that paying $178 would unlock further tasks and allow me to retrieve my full earnings. Trusting their words, I made a purchase from okx and provided them with proof of payment via a link and screenshot. However, upon completing task number 47, another freeze occurred with an amount of $1,728.
Once again, they insisted that paying this frozen amount would lead to substantial profits. Desperate for a solution, I borrowed money from a friend with the intention of repaying it promptly after receiving my earnings. However, as soon as I managed to gather $1,000 from various sources, they informed me that they only had $500 left.
In a state of panic and running out of options, I approached another friend for help with the remaining $228 needed to complete the payment process. Throughout this ordeal, I meticulously documented every step and screenshot taken during each transaction.
Unfortunately, disaster struck when my friend reminded me that failure to pay off the blocked amount would result in losing all my money. This revelation left me feeling helpless as I struggled to find ways to repay my friend while also gathering the remaining $4,010.
After exhausting all possibilities including mortgaging my car (which didn't yield enough funds), borrowing more money from friends for just a few hours' time limit became impossible. In desperation during stage 59 of this process (thinking it was stage 60), I purchased one dollar only for it to freeze again.
Finally reaching out for assistance from customer service at edaytask platform administration as advised by the scammer themselves; they informed me that an Indian company was requesting taxes on the total amount earned ($9,000). This came as a shock since my actual earnings were only $900.
Customer service further explained that in order to proceed with receiving my earnings after such a significant amount was accumulated (as mentioned above), ten percent of the total amount ($8,579) needed to be paid as taxes.
I am deeply distressed by this entire situation as it has caused immense financial strain and emotional turmoil. It is clear now that I have been scammed by someone who manipulated my trust and exploited my vulnerability.
I kindly request your assistance in investigating this matter further so that appropriate action can be taken against those responsible for perpetrating this scam on unsuspecting individuals like myself. Additionally, any guidance or support you can provide regarding recovering any lost funds would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your attention and prompt action in addressing this issue.
