So to start….I am an idiot, I know this. Lets find out how much of one:
I stared into crypto about a month ago. I began watching every video I could find, sifted who I thought was good and who was bad. I had 10k to start and I put the majority into BTC. I started a twitter for some dumb reason for crypto related news. I liked a lot of the Benjamin Cowen videos. I followed who I thought was Benjamin Cowen on Twitter. The handle was intocrytpovese…missing an r. I caught that detail too late. I sent a DM asking for a sample of his sites premium content which I was thinking of paying for and got into a conversation with who I thought was Benjamin. I was instructed to open an account on [Cryptooptionsfx.com](https://cryptooptionsfx.com/)
, and deposited my BTC from my Coinbase Pro account to that wallet. The transfer was instant. Only after that point did I find out I had been fooled. I attempted to initiate a transfer of the BTC back into my Coinbase Pro account, but all it says is pending and has for a couple hours. Did I screw up and give away 6k worth of BTC, or do transfers sometimes take some time and it is possible that I can recover it?
