A random person on telegram claiming he found me on presearch coin group asked help from me to withdraw his funds from bitextrum exchange. have you heard of this exchange?
he sent 1 btc to my new account on bitextrum because he cant withdraw to external wallet. bitextrum exchange doesnt allow him because of laws. (this is what he says and error on the site)

so he wanted from me to create new account. after he sent 1 btc to my account i couldnt withdraw because the exchange wants deposits from external wallet.

i am thinking this is new kind of scam those people look like they need help. i see bitextrum.com domain is brand new. what you think about it?
he cant withdraw because of laws and i cant withdraw because i didnt deposit from external btc wallet. he said he is from ecuador. is crypto banned in ecuador?

It is a scam trick and it's been going on for a while. It's good to know that you were not greedy and therefore didn't fall for it. Basically after all the stories the scammer tells you, the so-called exchange will ask you to make a deposit of more BTC as a form of "verification" when you try to withdraw the money the scammer claims are in his account. Once you send them the money, it's gone.

Yes, when I search bitextrum with review or scam there's no victim complaining about this exchange yet
1. https://www.scamfoo.com/site/bitextrum.com/
2. https://www.islegitsite.com/check/bitextrum.com/

At least this thread can prevent any newbies before use this exchange if they use search engine.

These scammers are usually quick to react with deleting their website, create a new one, start sending random message, and so on. A more effective way for newbies would be to learn the known MO of scammers instead of individually checking new random website.

Why don't you just do it and see what happens? As long as you don't install or download anything from them or deposit or use a wallet that already has crypto in it then you should be fine.
I'm very interested in how this scam works. The scammer must want you to deposit and some point in time for whatever reason they make up. Otherwise how else would they gain anything?
Be very careful when answering dm/pm on social networks.

I guess it's a lesson learned. Next time you should endeavor to first look for reviews, scam accusations or even ask for assistance from members in finding out if the website you are about to send your money to is legit.

Just because it looks legit doesn't mean it's not scam. Scammers are getting smarter and so should you.

That random person is possibly the owner of the site since how could he trust you while he don't even know you? those 1 BTC is just a bait for you to deposit and for sure he will take your money after the process. This style is classic which can still caught newbies empty handed so better leave the platform and don't entertain those kind of offer since its so dangerous to take a risk for.

Sorry with your loss.

Make it a habit that you will check for reviews first before using an exchange. Start by searching which are the most popular exchanges and if you can't start with that. Go quickly to search for the reviews.

Don't be too confident with each exchange that you see and doubt it before depositing such amount. Losing 0.05 btc is quite a huge amount. Don't just look and depend to the design, it's very deceiving.
