There is a very very very small chance that you get your money back (almost impossible low), as @wojake said you need to report the case to your local authorities, if they take action and find out something you might get your things back. Normally (in probably 99.999999% of the cases), the money/coins are lost and you won't get anything back.
Please guys don't fall for such obvious scams.

There are multiple red flags:
- Domain/URL, why should they host a giveaway on any other URL than ripple.com?
- Why should you first send something to receive XRP back, they could simply send you some XRP if they wanted to do a giveaway?
- YouTube video from random account

Other red flags (not in this case):
- Shady Email-Addresses or hidden Email-Addresses
- Asking for any private information like: email, secrets etc.

In the end you should do at least some tiny bit of research before doing transactions, filing out forms.
If I google XRP giveaway I have at least 3 sites of links that warn me about scams etc.

I've talked to a C-level executive about this matter and they can't do anything about it since the criminals would just innovate their ways of scamming, if we do X, they'll do X^1, if we do Y to battle X^1, they'll do Z and so on...

The point is, we can't stop these scams since scammers can change their tactics every single day without being flagged (rarely).

The best thing that we can do as a community to battle out these scams is awareness, we could educate our friends and colleagues about this topic, it might be taboo but it is in our best interest to warn them (newbie or not) because I've seen old crypto nerds being mesmerized by these innovative scams, it's ******* crazy how they spam the views and spam the chat with *somewhat* believable discussions. Herd immunity is very powerful.

So sorry Damien! EVERYONE BEWARE of this channel using xrpripple name and logo.  youtube.com/user/EGOoficial/videos

You can see for yourself that the website richxrp.com was just registered TODAY at 2:57 am.

Everyone should first check any suspicious (unreal price or offer on any thing) websites registration history through any domain name 'whois' tool. I'm not promoting godaddy, but simple tool to check website url that is suspicious, you can go to https://www.godaddy.com/whois. Put the website/domain name in where it ask for domain name.  (in this case richxrp.com)  Scammers have to keep changing their website addresses and get new ones to keep conning people.  Usually websites are one day, a few weeks, or months, and up to a year or so old if fake and fraudulent. If the scammer paid good money (very rare) for a domain name already registered for years, it could be any age. So do all due diligence before taking any action on a suspiciously great offer. 


I read xrp sued/settled with youtube for allowing scams like this to stay on youtube. I did not study further to find if that is true. If true, this mornings scam post should be taken down soon, when ripple becomes aware of it... Screenshot of SCAM youtube channel is attached.

To Damien and others: ALWAYS check any whois tool (is free no signup)

worldxrp.com, the website where you were conned, was only registered yesterday. see registration info from whois tool below. This tool is fastest way to check any websites age to discover scams which show a websites domain name is too new: (usually days to a few months before they get busted.)

Also look for misspellings such as
