Got Scammed by Crypto Exchange – Why Calling the Police Won’t Solve the Problem

So, when you think about calling the police, you forget the fact that you are about to tell them about an online entity. You are going to tell them that you were scammed by an online exchanges. The first thing they will ask you is about the address or location of the exchanges. And when you tell them that the exchanges is located on the other side of the world, they will not do much about the situation. The problem is, they can catch people who exist in the country. They cannot catch thieves who are on the other side of the world. And that’s the case with online exchanges.

In addition to that, you might not even know the location of the exchanges truly. If you had not researched much before signing up with the exchanges, you might as well have signed up with someone who is not an exchange at all. The address you see on their website might be a bogus address. So, there is no way for you to catch them by calling the police.

However, if you are lucky that the exchanges you have signed up with has provided real details on the website, your police might contact the Interpol. Now, you have to keep in mind that Interpol will not catch the thieves like your local police does. That’s not the job of the international police. They can help your police get to the culprit, but that’s about it. Their job does not include more than that. In other words, you will not get as much help from these agencies as you may think.
