Pig Butchering is a world wide scourge. This is a vicious financial crime that drains bank accounts, life savings, and even causes victims to get second mortgages on their homes or empty out their retirement accounts or childrenโ€™s college savings accounts to further the scam. Generational wealth vanishes because of these scams leaving victims with nothing or, worse yet, mountains of debt and emotional damage.

A Pig Butchering Scam can take place over a period of months or in extreme cases a year or more, but tracing the transactions doesn't need to be intimidating.

Did you know? When it comes to the transfer of the scammed cryptocurrency from the victim to the suspect, the scammed crypto still moves across the blockchain the same way no matter what type of scam is happening? That includes Pig Butchering and you will see that in this course as you complete a practical application exercise where you will manually trace Tether (USDT), that was scammed through Pig Butchering, across the Ethereum blockchain to a Centralized Cryptocurrency Exchange (CEX).

The thing with a long-con like Pig Butchering is that over that period of months or more than a year there are many transfers. As far as tracing transactions goes, you need to take them one at a time.

Another key component is that you need to document the tracing in an efficient way that will keep it easy to read, organized, and manageable. Thatโ€™s where my custom made Cryptocurrency Transaction Tracing Log (CTTL) comes in. This is a custom spreadsheet that I created in Microsoft Excell and is also compatible with Google Sheets . You will download and use it in this course.

This course is not all inclusive. You will learn a new and very valuable skill here. However, once you begin your cryptocurrency transaction tracing journey you will encounter things not covered in this course. That's how the cryptocurrency space is. Beware of anyone who sells a course with the promise of it being "the only course you need" because that just isn't true.

Once you get this specialized foundational knowledge and experience, however, it will make understanding other tracing situations that you encounter much easier.

Once you register and pay for this course you will have full access for 30 days. You will complete the course quicker than that but I want you to be able to go back over it more than once if you would like to get more practice.

After completion, your certificate of completion will be auto generated using the name that you registered with so make sure it's the name that you want on the certificate. The certificate will then be emailed to the email address that you registered with.

Most importantly, once you gain these skills and get this experience,
no one can take it away from you.

You can keep building from there.
