I would highly recommend James, Kayla, and the team at Cybertrace. We found them to be very professional and provided thorough information. During the process James answered all our questions via phone or email within 24 hours so the communication was great also. The reports gather by Cybertrace were very detailed and useful when we handed them over to the police. Thanks again.

James was very professional during the whole process from being scammed by a fake trading platform. He was able to trace where my BTC cashed out, with a thorough website analysis of the scammers we should hopefully prosecute down the track. After Cybertrace identified the individual I went hard with them on all there social media, emailing the individual that I know who they are. I have received back 75% of my funds from these low life’s. Highly recommend Cybertrace.
