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 Highly recommend Cybertrace.

The team at Cybertrace is absolutely amazing. They have been able, with some time, to identify the people that had defrauded me through various online scams, with very in depth, technical research that allowed for these scammers to be identified. They have also pointed me in the direction of specialty recovery companies to get my funds back, which is looking pretty good so far. Would definitely recommend their services.

Cybertrace people are true professionals and have excellence in cyber security business and investigation. Recently interacted with James who with his team not only uncovered a sizable cyber breach but also helped other ppl including me to warn in time and evade a financial risk/damange done. Can not thank you guys enough and wish you well for all you do and would like to highly recommend their services for any cyber security/investigation needs.

Cybertrace really came through when I had a lot of uncertainty around a spoof email and crypto currency theft. They were able to track the stolen currency from Blockchain through mixers and into the accounts where the currency was then extracted. They did the detective work necessary for authorities to take action. It was initially difficult for me to discover who legitimate crypto discovery firms might be with some bogus articles. I called James and talked to him about the process and cost. They delivered above the line in terms of expectations he set. It wasn't cheap, but it was great value and is the only option I could find to trace and track where my stolen crypto currency ended up.

Australia targets ransomware with new national plan, CSO Online
