If you've followed crypto at all over the past 10 years you will be
familiar with such exit scamming.  If you make a bet and you're not there
to see the money, you should always be wary.  Up to and including banks.
Under your mattress will always be the safest bet.  And even safer?  I hope
you are hoarding oil.  Or food and water.

In 2012, a group named Tony76 scammed a bunch of people on the original
Silk Road to the tune of 400k in BTC at 5$ per.  I know--I was there.
That's worth 800 million bucks today.  Then they came back under another
name and did it again.

It's good to be one step ahead of the collective realization.  Treat value
you loan to someone else as good as lost.
