Do i have a lega stand after being scammed money online? A fake forex trader approached me and pomised to trade on our behalf, we sent him money(There is proof) and after 3 months he created a false video showing statements that he paid everyone, yet in our whatsapp conversation he admitted that he scammed us and theres mothing we can do about it. It there a way for recourse here in legal means?

I know the guy, and have met him in person.
