New to trading and crypto.
I think I have made the classic beginners mistakes and now need some advice.
Deposited (via credit card) $250usd to a broker (4xfx) who then wanted me to purhase a bitcoin that they would then show me how to trade with and make a fortune. Didnt do this so they then compromised by trading other assets with my $250 to show me that they will indeed make me money. The $250 is now $340 with about 10 winning small trades (no losses at all).
This has been over about a month and in that time many calls asking me to trust them and to buy the bitcoin. The senior broker is very convincing and knowledgeable but my I now realise I am out of my depth and just want out of this situation.
I am not going to buy the coin but dont know how to now proceed.
I want to withdraw my money but to do this I (apparently) have to provide proof of identity documents like photo drivers licence, passport details etc.
I do not want to do this as am worried about identity theft or fraud.
I know this is a small amount of money (reading this forum I see where some poor souls have lost many thousands to scams - so sorry for you) and it would be nice if I got my $250 back but my major concern is that my credit card details that I used to make the initial deposit (and that would be used to receive the withdrawal - if it happens) can not be compromised in any way.
Sorry for the long winded opening post but would appreciate any advice.
