How to recover money from investment scams, online trading and unregulated brokers Dec 18, 2020Views: 3579
You’ve gone ahead and taken the leap, foraying into the world of investments in hopes of making some passive side income. Unfortunately, in your haste to join the investing world, you’ve decided to go with a smooth-talking broker who made promises that turned out to be empty. Scammers often entice new investors with luxurious lifestyles and exciting returns. However, the truth is that if it looks too good to be true, it usually is.
Pro Chargeback, a leader in asset retrieval and fund recovery, says that "we all like to believe that we're too intelligent to fall prey to scams, but some of these fraudulent brokers look so legitimate and it's only when your money has been whiled away do you realize the truth." They go on to detail how to protect oneself from unregulated brokers and investment scams. The first step is always to check the Financial Services Register. If the company isn't listed on the site, chances are you are dealing with a scammer.
Scammers have only one thing on their minds and that’s parting you from your money. They’ll resort to multiple different tactics with that one goal in mind. Some will employ harassment as a form of pressure and call you frequently to tell you that it’s the best time to invest and you’ll be losing out if you don’t make the deposit immediately. A legitimate broker would want to get their clients comfortable with the idea of trading, and ease them into the process with a dummy account and take the time to educate them and expose them to the world of trading. If at any time you feel pressured into making a deposit, you might want to consider a different broker instead.
If you have made a deposit with any questionable third parties, you should immediately report them to the authorities and contact Pro Chargeback. They have fraud forensic specialists that can aid in gaining access to the scammer's records and track their actions across databases. Their asset recovery team has dealt with many schemes over the last seven years, including but not limited to asset concealment and destruction, asset misappropriation, binary options scam, cryptocurrency scam, ponzi and pyramid schemes, as well as investment or forex scams. They are also experienced in money laundering and proceeds of crime, corporate fraud and corruption, commercial disputes, and bankruptcy or insolvency fraud.
It is suggested that victims should act quickly, but it is easier said than done because, in many cases, it usually takes the victims a few weeks or months to realize that they've been involved in a scam. This doesn't mean that the money cannot be recovered, quite the contrary, with the proper documentation and the right help, it can be fully recovered. It might take more time to recover, but the team at Pro Chargeback is confident that they will eventually take back what is yours. They work closely with lawyers, insurance companies, and law enforcement to recover misappropriated funds.
Pro Chargeback’s experience in money retrieval is so extensive that they have a database on how scams are employed, how fraudsters think, and how they would act in order to catch them. They are also well-versed in negotiating with financial institutions as well as credit card companies, putting them ahead of their competitors that do not have the same comprehension as they do.
"We understand people," the team reveals, "we know what it's like to be scammed. The fragility and emotional distress that comes with being parted with our hard-earned money. That pit in the stomach knowing that you've lost your entire life savings or a large portion of it, to someone bearing ill will. We can also get into the mind of these fraudulent, unregulated brokers. We see the way they think, and we know how they'll act through years of data surveillance and pure experience. We're confident in our ability to deliver results while protecting the sensitivities of our clients."
Clearly, their success rate and professionalism is a vote of confidence in itself. But that’s not all that they offer. They have a hundred percent transparency with their clients and will keep them updated on everything that they are doing, along with honest reports of what’s going to happen. Victims have already experienced one of the very worst things that can happen to anyone, and they want to make the experience less bitter and pain-free, by allowing them the comforts of honesty.
Besides retrieving their client's money and assets for them, they also offer support and guide their clients on spotting scams and learning to avoid and manage any fraudulent activity and brokers. Preventative measures are important to safeguard our finances. As they say, prevention is better than cure.
