MAN LOSES GAMBLE ON CRYTOCURRENT
Many investors are getting into cryptocurrency like bitcoin to get rich quick, but there are some red flags you'll want to watch out for.
One man found this out the hard way. Cryptocurrency investor Alan Wiener. decided to roll the dice on cryptocurrency and tried to wire $30,000 from his wife's bank account to buy the currency using a service called Coinbase. The money never showed up.
"The names didn't match exactly," he said. "So I forgot if it said seven or 10 business days, they will be returning the $30,000."
Wiener never got his money back until reporters got involved. To roll the dice on cryptocurrency and avoid the same problems, make sure the legal name on your bank account matches the name on your Coinbase account.
