Another Crypto Scam, iEarn Bot

The iEarn Bot App is a cryptocurrency trading application that promises investors substantial returns over a short period. The app operates in several countries, including Romania, Indonesia, Nigeria, and Colombia. According to an investigation by the BBC, the app places significant emphasis on urging investors to recruit more individuals to join the app.

The BBC obtained chat conversations where people claiming to be iEarn Bot’s customer service representatives informed investors that they could only withdraw their funds by paying a 30% fee. Local leaders in Nigeria and Colombia, who communicated with iEarn Bot mentors solely via Telegram, were pressured to organize recruiting events. Other users have reported that they cannot withdraw their funds from iEarn Bot’s App.
