Of course if you send your money in there’s a high chance you’ll never see it again. If you’re ever given proof that other people have received money then it’s possible that it’s a fake, or that it’s people that got in early (such as a Ponzi scheme where the money from the later investors pay out the early investors to give the illusion that the scheme offers high returns).
