Nick Hugues (Hughes?) was the UK rep that contacted me stating that his organization (Director David Warburton) could recover the stolen cryptocurrency that I was lead to believe I earned through the criminal organization that deceptively lead a WhatsApp group of people with a highly sophisticated program that simulated a foreign exchange for AMQ & LAD; the trades were led by crypto guru, Philipp Sandner (who I discovered died a month after I joined) that fictitiously earned me $1.2M over a couple of months, however the supposed (the account holding my $$ that I wired to a bank in Canada months earlier) owner Benjamin Gray demanded I pay 20% for taxes (as if he was the IRS) of the total up front before releasing the money to me.  CRYPTO TAX SCAM

I then responded to an ad about Hawthorn Cyber Security claiming they could recover stolen crypto. Nick said they could retrieve my stolen money by using Shark Bot malware to gain access to the criminals’ wallet & extract my crypto. They made me sign a contract with TDW Escrow (Richard May) stating that I’d pay them 10% of the amount of crypto ($142K) that was recovered with the Shark Bot malware and that I had to make a deposit to pay for the use of this Shark Bot malware.

I invested $5000+ to get this accomplished which they claimed they did without offering my ANY proof, but THEN they told me I needed to pay $1000’s more for a mixer to clean the crypto since it was linked to a criminal org and displayed some link to firearms. They THREATENED me saying that the FBI would come after me if I didn't pay the crypto mixer to strip this nefarious data. So in addition to refusing the video call with me which I requested MANY times, they refused to show me any evidence of their discovery of my stolen BTC.

I’ve reported them everywhere and hope these criminals are imprisoned soon.
