The story of Billy Ray Wilson's Investment Fraud.
Many of you have seen @guruleaks1 post about the fraud committed by Billy Ray Wilson, AKA, @wolvesofwallst before he deleted his twitter account. I am unfortunately one of the many victims and I am here to share the story behind it if you are interested.
Here is a short summary of how it all happen.
Met Billy via twitter when we were discussing some ideas in regards to trading, he invited me to his own personal group which actually has less than 10 people at this point and its my first time joining such group where they treat each other as FAMILY.
As time past, the group gotten bigger and Billy got "better" in his trading as well (from what we see from his screenshot of his PNL daily). The team really got to respect and trust Billy as he spend his time guiding the team and also giving some guidance about anything, even outside of trading. So Billy was like a mentor and friend and brother to all of us in his trading group.
Alot of the member in the group also met up with Billy and visited his trading office to get more insight from him.
Billy was asked to give a talk at the 2018 Traders Submit.
He had invited the whole team to the submit and it will be like a team building/bonding session and many of the team traveled with him.
So around this period, he was also in conversation with me about setting up the account and wire him the money to him for investment purposes.
This was his instruction to send the funds to his account.
He also acknowledge the amount of 25k received on his end and he later signal that he will be setting up the account soon.
He then became hard to contact with alot of reasons.
If you are still here and reading, thank you. The reason why i put up this is because of 2 main reasons;
1) Hope that the public can help me out during this difficult time as this 25k was all I had when i sent Billy and I currently have some issues that I am in need of this cash.
2) Hope that more people will be aware of this person as I heard he is out there doing the same thing to a new group of people, hopefully I can save you some money.
I know many people will be calling me stupid for sending money over but in my defense, all of us in the group all have alot of respect and trust for Billy and would never have thought he would do such a thing.
Billy had repay some of the amount to buy himself some time but he still owe $22,700 in total.
As that money is all i have had, im currently unable to hire any lawyer and the big issue is im not in USA but located in Singapore.
So i hope if you think you can help me out in this situation, i really appreciate it.
Thank you for reading and for your time.
