Is FBC13 Algorithm a Scam at FBC Limited?

I trusted FBC Limited at and got scammed. I am embarrassed whenever I think about this for the rest of my life. I saw comments that I now realize are spam under Crypto Analysis videos talking about the FBC13 algorithm. So, I googled it and saw a few articles saying nice things about it. I was skeptical at first since all the articles were posted recently, I couldn't find any older articles about them. But, I was too greedy to make a profit and ignored all the bad signs like that or the fact that their registration with Company House doesn't look legit.

Is FBC13 Algorithm a Scam at FBC Limited?

The Warning Signs

Their phone line rings but no one picked up, and the only communication you can make with the site is via live chat, which isn't always online. And, their transition to a new domain just a month ago that they explained was because the old one got stolen, etc. The Support manager in live chat was very responsive and nice for the first few days when I had questions about investment. But now has shown their true colour.

They promised annual passive income and collect-able accruals every day if I deposited and that I could withdraw my daily accruals and undeposited funds anytime.

I added 0.004 bitcoin to my fund and deposited it to test. First accrual day, the profit was too small so I couldn't withdraw, therefore I added 0.5 BTC to my fund to withdraw along with my accrual. The site still didn't let me. I contacted live chat and they said there was a withdrawal limit on my account because it's new but they lifted it so promised I could withdraw any amounts I wanted from then. I proceeded to be able to withdraw the undeposited 0.5 bitcoin + accrual after. Somehow my trust was stupidly gained.

A few hours later, I sent them 2 bitcoin planning to deposit. But I wanted to test if I can withdraw it first, and as you might have guessed, no, it didn't let me gain. The live chat was online so I asked them why I couldn't withdraw and it went offline immediately. I tried to contact them the whole day through email and the day after when live chat was online again but no response, they ignored me for about 36 hours. Until today, I told them I have friends in the UK that will report this to the police, they responded that they were busy because there had been a lot of new clients(?). It's funny they were so busy with their new clients but still had time to flag and deleted all the bad reviews I wrote on Trust Pilot right after the moment I posted on that day they were ignoring me.

Basically, they said I wasn't able to withdraw because I have to verify my ID with them first since my deposit was > $10,000. As I said above, they promised I could withdraw any amounts I wanted bigger or small but after a day of ignoring me, they said I can't without verification. Also, my 2 bitcoin wasn't deposited yet, it is still in my fund along with the accruals. I don't remember reading the term where I had to go through KYC verification if the deposit is more than $10,000. They may have added that term or it was my mistake not reading it carefully. Either way, that rule shouldn't apply to me because I never deposited the 2 bitcoins to begin with. I have read about KYC verification scams and after what they did to me I don't think I could trust them to give my personal info to.

There is a video on the Economist’s YouTube channel featuring Misty Copeland, and randomly there are a ton of bot comments trying to direct you to google the FBC fund algorithm. It looks like these people are relying on comments in unrelated places to try to get more people to fall for their scam.

I have just done a little investigating in to this scam. Somebody pointed out on another forum that their dev team photo's were just taken from elsewhere on the internet but it seems they have updated those photos and now nothing is returned when you reverse image search them... Interestingly they aren't too good with their photo editing though and in their news ( section they have simply taken a photo from another site (

I shall keep investigating but clearly FBC and Vetracoin are massive scams and I am now determined to unmask these clowns.

Online Threat Alerts Security Tips

Pay the safest way

Credit cards are the safest way to pay for online purchases because you can dispute the charges if you never get the goods or services or if the offer was misrepresented. Federal law limits your liability to $50 if someone makes unauthorized charges to your account, and most credit card issuers will remove them completely if you report the problem promptly.

Guard your personal information

In any transaction you conduct, make sure to check with your state or local consumer protection agency and the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to see if the seller, charity, company, or organization is credible. Be especially wary if the entity is unfamiliar to you. Always call the number found on a website’s contact information to make sure the number legitimately belongs to the entity you are dealing with.

Be careful of the information you share

Never give out your codes, passwords or personal information, unless you are sure of who you're dealing with

Know who you’re dealing with

Crooks pretending to be from companies you do business with may call or send an email, claiming they need to verify your personal information. Don’t provide your credit card or bank account number unless you are actually paying for something and know who you are sending payment to. Your social security number should not be necessary unless you are applying for credit. Be especially suspicious if someone claiming to be from a company with whom you have an account asks for information that the business already has.

Check your accounts

Regularly check your account transactions and report any suspicious or unauthorised transactions.

Don’t believe promises of easy money

If someone claims that you can earn money with little or no work, get a loan or credit card even if you have bad credit, or make money on an investment with little or no risk, it’s probably a scam. Oftentimes, offers that seem too good to be true, actually are too good to be true.

Do not open email from people you don’t know

If you are unsure whether an email you received is legitimate, try contacting the sender directly via other means. Do not click on any links in an email unless you are sure it is safe.

Think before you click

If an email or text message looks suspicious, don’t open any attachments or click on the links.

Verify urgent requests or unsolicited emails, messages or phone calls before you respond

If you receive a message or a phone call asking for immediate action and don't know the sender, it could be a phishing message.

Be careful with links and new website addresses

Malicious website addresses may appear almost identical to legitimate sites. Scammers often use a slight variation in spelling or logo to lure you. Malicious links can also come from friends whose email has unknowingly been compromised, so be careful.

Secure your personal information

Before providing any personal information, such as your date of birth, Social Security number, account numbers, and passwords, be sure the website is secure.

Stay informed on the latest cyber threats

Keep yourself up to date on current scams by visiting this website daily.

Use Strong Passwords

Strong passwords are critical to online security.

Keep your software up to date and maintain preventative software programs

Keep all of your software applications up to date on your computers and mobile devices. Install software that provides antivirus, firewall, and email filter services.

Update the operating systems on your electronic devices

Make sure your operating systems (OSs) and applications are up to date on all of your electronic devices. Older and unpatched versions of OSs and software are the target of many hacks. Read the CISA security tip on Understanding Patches and Software Updates for more information.

What if You Got Scammed?

Stop Contact With The Scammer

Hang up the phone. Do not reply to emails, messages, or letters that the scammer sends. Do not make any more payments to the scammer. Beware of additional scammers who may contact you claiming they can help you get your lost money back.

Secure Your Finances

  • Report potentially compromised bank account, credit or debit card information to your financial institution(s) immediately. They may be able to cancel or reverse fraudulent transactions.
  • Notify the three major credit bureaus. They can add a fraud alert to warn potential credit grantors that you may be a victim of identity theft. You may also want to consider placing a free security freeze on your credit report. Doing so prevents lenders and others from accessing your credit report entirely, which will prevent them from extending credit:

Check Your Computer

If your computer was accessed or otherwise affected by a scam, check to make sure that your anti-virus is up-to-date and running and that your system is free of malware and keylogging software. You may also need to seek the help of a computer repair company. Consider utilizing the Better Business Bureau’s website to find a reputable company.

Change Your Account Passwords

Update your bank, credit card, social media, and email account passwords to try to limit further unauthorized access. Make sure to choose strong passwords when changing account passwords.

Report The Scam

Reporting helps protect others. While agencies can’t always track down perpetrators of crimes against scammers, they can utilize the information gathered to record patterns of abuse which may lead to action being taken against a company or industry.

Report your issue to the following agencies based on the nature of the scam:

  • Local Law Enforcement: Consumers are encouraged to report scams to their local police department or sheriff’s office, especially if you lost money or property or had your identity compromised.
  • Federal Trade Commission: Contact the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at 1-877-FTC-HELP (1-877-382-4357) or use the Online Complaint Assistant to report various types of fraud, including counterfeit checks, lottery or sweepstakes scams, and more.
  • If someone is using your personal information, like your Social Security, credit card, or bank account number, to open new accounts, make purchases, or get a tax refund, report it at This federal government site will also help you create your Identity Theft Report and a personal recovery plan based on your situation. Questions can be directed to 877-ID THEFT.

How To Recognize a Phishing Scam

Scammers use email or text messages to try to steal your passwords, account numbers, or Social Security numbers. If they get that information, they could get access to your email, bank, or other accounts. Or they could sell your information to other scammers. Scammers launch thousands of phishing attacks like these every day — and they’re often successful.

Scammers often update their tactics to keep up with the latest news or trends, but here are some common tactics used in phishing emails or text messages:

Phishing emails and text messages often tell a story to trick you into clicking on a link or opening an attachment. You might get an unexpected email or text message that looks like it’s from a company you know or trust, like a bank or a credit card or utility company. Or maybe it’s from an online payment website or app. The message could be from a scammer, who might

  • say they’ve noticed some suspicious activity or log-in attempts — they haven’t
  • claim there’s a problem with your account or your payment information — there isn’t
  • say you need to confirm some personal or financial information — you don’t
  • include an invoice you don’t recognize — it’s fake
  • want you to click on a link to make a payment — but the link has malware
  • say you’re eligible to register for a government refund — it’s a scam
  • offer a coupon for free stuff — it’s not real
