Two questions:

 

1) What do you mean by "made an investment through a fellow stock investor"? Most people make investments through licensed securities dealers (i.e., stock brokers and the firms with which they are associated).

 

2) How much did you invest? $60,000 seems like a huge return in less than a year, particularly for a 19 year old college student, unless you also made a huge investment (like, for example, $50,000).

 

One point:

 

1) Make SURE you are NOT getting scammed in some way, shape or form. The scenario you laid out does not pass the smell test.
