I am new to Bitcoin. Am I being scammed?


I am new to Bitcoin. I got into transaction with this woman I saw on Facebook, Olivia Jessica, a lot were mentioning her in a group so I decided to ask her how to do this thing. She asked me to join by starting with $300 and she will do the rest of the trading to help me get my first profit. After 2 days, she told me I earned almost $10,000 dollars and is now asking me to pay for a transfer fee of $350.

I need to loan that huge amount of withdrawal fee so I am hesitating because I feel like I am being scammed. I was sent an email about the withdrawal fee and the profit I gained after 2 days of the transaction but it seems that the email is not delivered in a formal manner given that it is company generated e-mail.

After that, I asked for proofs like ID and she sent me a picture of her ID but I am still hesitant to believe after being able to watch a couple of videos of scams on YouTube. She sent me a link to SIGN UP into to see my profit. Then after SIGNING UP, she told me that she will just input my earnings on the account (so I can see it in the dashboard).

I want to reassure before paying her a huge amount of money again. Because my relatives think its a scam. Am I being scammed or is this how it's supposed to be?

I might look like a fool if this is really a scam but thank you. I really need advice if this is a scam or not. I just want to feed my family under this quarantine and ended up in this uncertain situation.

I have screenshots of our conversation including her IDs in case it would help to identify this situation.

Thank you for your help!

8This is a well-known scam. Don't give strangers money. If they had a way to turn $300 into $10000, they'd do so without your help, and be the richest people in the world in no time. If it turns too good to be true, it is. – Pieter Wuille – 2020-12-03T17:26:57.513
