Frequently Asked Questions
ERMProtect traces stolen funds through the blockchain in an attempt to identify where they went. This information can be used to facilitate recovery and/or pursue prosecutions.
ERMProtect performs a scoping phase to assess the viability of your case before moving forward. Please fill out the questionnaire (found here) so that our analysts can provide an opinion. Be sure to provide a two-paragraph summary of what happened, your jurisdiction, and transactions IDs and dates.
Typically, we only take cases where the loss is more than $100,00, given the costs of investigation and chances of recovery.
ERMProtect's analysts scope the case before we begin an investigation. We assess the probability of recovery, the complexity of the case, and the cost to perform an investigation. Our analyst will provide you with an opinion on the viability of the case before moving forward. If we think it’s not in the best interest of a prospective client to hire us based on a preliminary analysis, we say so.
We are an investigative firm, not a recovery firm. We investigate and develop intelligence that can be
used by law enforcement or civil attorneys to attempt recovery.
Recovering funds can be difficult in cryptocurrency. With the help of law enforcement and legal resources, there is a chance of recovering part of the funds, especially if they touched a regulated Exchange.
We are official partners of Chainalysis, the crypto-tracing platform company used by the U.S. Department of Justice and global investigative agencies to solve major crimes. We use Chainalysis to attempt to find out where your funds went and provide a report to law enforcement / civil attorneys who can then issue subpoenas to unmask the perpetrator / recover funds. For fraud and litigation cases, we provide intelligence and analysis that stands up in court.
We charge a small retainer to get started, and then bill hourly. We’re happy to provide an upfront estimate of the hours it will take to handle your case. We do not work on contingency.
Pre-engagement calls would not be time-efficient for either party. Our intake form will gather all of the necessary pre-engagement details. We’ll get back to you within 24 to 48 hours.
Yes. We have helped lawyers pursue civil litigation in major U.S. federal and state court jurisdictions in cases involving millions of dollars.
File a law enforcement report in your jurisdiction. In the U.S., this includes federal agencies such as the FBI, Securities & Exchange Commission (sec.gov/tcr), Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC.gov/complaint), Federal Trade Commission (ReportFraud.ftc.gov) and Internet Crime Complaint Center (ic3.gov/Home/FileComplaint. But candidly, due to the overwhelming amount of crypto fraud, chances are slim that your case will be investigated. However, keep in mind that your report to appropriate agencies allows them to spot serial scammers and meaningful trends. Also, with luck, your
small case may get be part of a bigger fraud scheme of interest to prosecutors. But there are no guarantees.
