It’s heartbreaking to even begin talking about what happened to me on the 28th of January this year.
As you probably know, the whole GameStop stock rising thing was a source of money and inspiration to many and some people made incredible returns on their investments. I lost everything.
My whole life savings portfolio was on the line, not because i WANTED to invest everything i had, but because my girlfriend (who was the first to take notice and wanted to earn some money) “accidentally” entered 0.2365btc instead of 0.0365btc into the site we used to trade bitcoin directly for stocks (its called currency.com).
I am a student and the only income i have is working over the summer to try to support myself over the year because both of my parents are unable to work and receive 500$ a month in total (Thats the minimum social security payment in Croatia).
Back in the day (November 2018) when bitcoin dropped to around 4k$ per 1btc, I was able to invest some of my earnings from the summer job into bitcoin and i let it stay in there because i knew that cryptocurrency was the way of the future. When the price jumped in the last month, i had more than 5x than when i invested. For me any my family, this sudden increase in savings was life changing and we all said that we would keep saving and using it only to feed us and pay the bills.
On January 28th 2021, my whole savings account got zeroed. Girlfriend didnt know how to use the site and put a call option on gamestop at 350$. The problem is, she used ALL of the funds in the account at 20x leverage. This means that even the little price fluctuations were too big to handle for the amount of money that was in the account and after a relatively small red candle, the account dropped to 0btc.
If you’ve ever been in a situation where your life was literally gambled away in 5 minutes, you’ll understand the shier heartbreak. I blame myself for trusting my girlfriend with the account after 4 years of being together but the lesson was learned and she left after being dumbfounded as to why I would value money so high. Since she was basically living for free at my place for 3 years, she is completely desensitized to money and doesnt really know what working to survive means.
I know this is probably the longest shot of my life, but if anyone feels they can help bring back my life, i will do anything.
