In a Coin Membership room, the leader introduced the ICO token project and said that now is the seed sale period. He showed me a screenshot of the site and told me to deposit Ethereum, talking about a DAO wallet based on the Ethereum chain.

So, at first, I sent 4 and 1.5 total 5.5 ETH to that address, but the promised Ethereum did not arrive on the payment date. They said that 10 ether should be exceeded, so I sent 3,2 total 5ETH to that address and list up them based on 10.5 ether, but it was not paid on the promised date either.

Later, he said because I sent ethereum below gwei40, the smart contract did not work, so I had to send the same number of ethereum again to gwei60. So I sent another 2, 3, 3.5, 2 in all 10.5 ether. I was tricked by a scammer and sent 21 ether to the scam address.

However, I eventually found out that I had been scammed. I found out the official homepage of the coin through Googling and showed the screenshot to the administrator. The administrator said it was a scam, and the address I sent the Ethereum to was also a scam address.

Another admin told me he can help me. He sent me a link and said it was a recovery program. He says that if I deposit 6.1ETH into my wallet and use the recovery program, I can get 21 ethers back. He says "an amount of Ether txid is needed to merge and retraced your 21ETH back into your wallet"

The ETH you deposited cannot be recovered unless the scammer sends it back.

Take the loss and use it as a learning experience for the future.
