Conversation with Scammer

Conversation with Scammer

This is a conversation between a friend of mine and “me”, which of course is not me, but a scammer who pretends to be me.

I have labelled my friend’s name as “FRIEND”, and the scammers name as “SCAMMER”. This was done using Facebook messenger. If you see anyone on Facebook using my name and then also use words such as “Binary” or “option” or “Investment”, then it will 100% certainty not be me.

His Facebook profile reads as below – which is near identical to mine – except for the use of the words Binary Option Trading.

See Conversation Below

SCAMMER: Well it seems you don’t believe you’re chatting with the right person

FRIEND: but you aren’t Tom Hougaard are you?

SCAMMER: I’m Tom Hougaard the Danish trader,reason’s I choose this platform for my students is, I don’t need calls while trading live on my telegram channel

FRIEND: Right in that case, you won’t have any difficulty in answering this question. In which country were you last weekend?

SCAMMER: Last weekend I was in Dubai.

FRIEND: Thank you for the confirmation. If you were not a fraudster you would have known the correct answer.

My Comments

My friend knew I was not in Dubai last week, because I had spoken to him
about where I was. So now we know that:

  • the scammers are following my movement in the channel.
  • they have a website called https://www.jaycoinpump.com/
  • we know it is a scam.

Please Help

I have 14,000 followers.
Some of you must have a presence on various chat rooms and other social channels. I rarely ask you for anything, but I ask you to help me fight this plague of scammers, who are abusing my name. Spread the word, please. Thank you.

Telegram Scams

 

My success as a trader has inspired scammers to imitate me. They establish Telegram channels with my name (Tom Hougaard or TraderTom), and they use my photos to create an authentic-looking channel.

The difference between me and the scammers is that I am not managing money. I am not asking people for money. I am not managing accounts. It is very important you understand that. I do not offer “follow me” accounts or “copycat” accounts.

The scammers will use my name and my image to portray themselves as me, and they will offer you investment schemes. These investment schemes will take various forms, but they always have one common denominator. They want you to send them money. Do not do it. If you are in doubt, send me an email on hello@tradertom.com.

If you want to see how the scammers are trying to outsmart me and you, then read the information below.

See examples below

Real Account Name

If you are in ANY doubt, please email me on hello@tradertom.com and I can send
you the signup link to my private trading channel.

Whatever you do, REMEMBER THIS:

  • I do not charge for my service
  • I do not invest money
  • I do not promise you to turn 100 into 1000 in 24 hours

Do not be fooled by how many members they show to have.

This individual has created many
fake TraderTom profiles:

I found that one of the more prolific scammers is a individual using the handle
“@DM…..” be mindful of that!!!

 

The use of my photo – promising big returns – a scam!

What usually gives the game away is if a channel has a lot of members, like this one which has 60k. However, notice the “count”, which is how many people have read the message, is just 6 people. Then you know it is a fake channel.

More Examples:

One way to know that it is a fake channel is the number of views a post has.

Here you see a promotion, but it only has 2 views.

 

It looks like my channel, but it is a scam. Notice there are 55,000 members

but look at how many are viewing the posts. Only 29!

Final Example:

This person has established a Telegram name very close to mine. It says

“@tomhougard” with one “a” but my name is with two “a”s.

Alcohol

Alcohol

I don’t get many opportunities to give back to the world. I try where I can. Some matters are more personal to you than others. I am sure you understand what I mean by that. If you had a family member who suffered from a particular ailment, you would perhaps be more inclined to support charities and initiatives that focused on this ailment.

Wherever I can, I support people who want to stop drinking. While I respect the efforts of the AA, I am perhaps not in agreement with the statement that alcoholism is an “incurable” disease. I subscribe to a different interpretation of being dependent on alcohol.

Follow

My own story is nothing spectacular. I wasn’t lying in the gutter, puking my guts out. I didn’t lose everything because of alcohol. I did however drink significant quantities. I started to drink earlier and earlier every day. I didn’t drink the “soft” stuff. I was drinking whiskey and the likes.

At one point I joined the AA. I stopped drinking for a while, perhaps 6 months, and I felt good for it. I then started drinking again. This time around I didn’t drink heavily, but I felt that more and more drinking occasions crept into my life. I became scared of becoming dependent on alcohol again.

I felt I had dealt with the underlying causes of my unhappiness. Heart ache, separation, divorce, all things had been dealt with and understood and forgiven. I also dealt with the matters surrounding my work. What you have to understand is that I was a successful professional in the financial district in London, with a great career, but I was made redundant during the financial crisis in 2009. My life and my identity came to a crashing stop.

I decided to not go back to work. I wanted to work for myself. I wanted to trade full time. While I am glad I did, I also look back and wish I had spent more time preparing myself mentally for the arduous journey of a self-employed trader. It is the reason I run the Telegram channel – to support others wishing to walk that path too.

The alcohol though affected my decision making and my energy levels. You come home and you have a glass of red wine or two during the evening. It is how Guns & Roses sings:

I used to do a little but a little wouldn’t do
So the little got more and more
I just keep trying to get a little better
Said a little better than before

I started researching my emotions surrounding alcohol. I read some work by Allen Carr, who had helped me stop smoking back in September 1998. He did a brilliant job at describing the nature of nicotine dependency/addiction. His attempt at alcohol dependency didn’t resonate with me though.

Then I came across a book, written by a gentleman, who is actually the poster boy for the juicing generation. Yes, Jason Vale, aka the Juice Master, has written a book about alcohol dependency called “Kick the Drink Easily”.

Kick the Drink Easily is an amazing book because it describes WHY we become dependent on alcohol. Unlike AA though it has an upbeat tone to it, and it does make you believe you can cure yourself from the disease of alcohol dependency.

The chapters deal with the major arguments for drinking.

  • It relieves stress.
  • I like the taste of it.
  • It helps me relax.
  • It gives me courage.
  • It is a social glue.

The list of reasons for drinking is long and complex. We all have reasons to drink, if we really seek a reason. The problem is that alcohol never solves a problem. It is an illusion.

The true value of the book is to make you understand the illusion. Strip away the illusion and you are free. It is like a magic show with David Copperfield. If you know the nature of the illusion the attraction of the show is gone.

Pledge

If you or a loved one needs help with alcohol dependency, I recommend this book. I would like to pledge to buy the book for you. Sometimes the postage will cost more than the book. In those cases, I will offer to send you money to buy the book in your own country.

I have not drunk alcohol for more than 6 years. I have been stressed, I have been to parties, I have danced, I have cried, and I have laughed. I have experienced every emotion under the sun, from high to low, and I have never once been tempted to “drown my sorrows” or “celebrate”. That is the power of this book.
