Keep the upper hand – Evaluate service providers like correctly

Investors have a diverse range of investment opportunities at their disposal, with professional and questionable service providers vying for their favour.

There are many indications that a service or offer is not reputable, and it is important to keep an eye out. Here you will learn what to look for when investing your hard-earned money.

Banking, financial services and insurance companies like are only allowed to operate in the FRG with state authorisation. The companies have obtained authorisation, but that does not mean that the products sold are of excellent quality.

In the event that a prospectus or information sheet approved by the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority has been published in advance, derivatives and investments can be made equally accessible to the general public.

BaFin simply ensures that prospectuses are complete, comprehensible and coherent. The prospectus or information sheet of is not necessary in every circumstance.

Before investing, consider your sustainable goals and whether you have the economic means to achieve them. Do not rush the process. Before you put your money into an investment, take time to look at the pros and cons. Don’t make a decision straight away, even if you have consulted with others.

Time pressure when investing? What is your experience with

Do you feel the pressure of a tight deadline? The service provider lures you with a special offer, but you are under pressure to make a decision in a flash?

This is certainly not an ideal idea, because it is often a ruse. You can not only get reliable offers now, but also invest in in the future.

To achieve their goal, criminals know exactly what to do. They go to great lengths to obtain as much information as they can about their target through cleverly crafted questions. In addition, they ask about the status of the other person, for example whether he or she is home alone or whether he or she has assets at home.

They also play a game of “wait and see” in order to make the person desperate. They may keep their counterpart on the phone forever until he or she agrees to go to the financial institution and hand over money and other valuables to the criminals.

In one of these scams, the victim is put under pressure to meet a deadline. With this very measure, the injured party is made to override his own caution.

Current support scams use the same method. Since the computer of the person contacted is allegedly infected by a very serious virus, the callers, who presumably work at the behest of Microsoft or such a company as, demand urgent payment of a maintenance contract in English with an Indian accent.

The criminals increase the pressure by threatening to make the targeted persons pay if their computer is infected and transmits the infections.

Beware of Pump and Dump

The term pump and dump is used to describe a situation where the price of a share is unnaturally inflated by insiders. Afterwards, the same share is sold again at a loss to the other money investors.

This is therefore a fraud. A manipulation that profits from the ignorance of small investors and stock market novices.

This strategy is therefore forbidden on a controlled stock market and for companies like The crypto market, on the other hand, is still largely “Wild West” as far as these same tactics are concerned. Because of this, extra vigilance is needed!

Pump-and-dump scams are more common there in connection with the so-called altcoins. The pump-and-dump scam is used by criminals to drive up the market price of an unknown or even independently created currency. They achieve this by spreading false information on the net or on social media or by luring co-investors with unreasonable profit expectations.

So make sure that the provider provides you with all the necessary information on the subject matter, if applicable.

Contact and procedure with dubious online trading platforms

There is an abundance of capital goods on dubious online trading platforms, which are persistently advertised in blogs and social media to lure capital investors.

In addition, “multi-level marketing” is used to solicit new investors. The advertising primarily emphasises the assurance of timely profitability.

To start investing, a potential buyer must first create a user account with the online trading platform – such as Then the perpetrators contact the investor via a call centre and try to persuade him to invest large amounts of money.

The investors’ positive attitude towards cybertrading is partly reinforced by the idea of future profits.

Clients are more willing to invest in the future if they see exactly the kind of results they dream of. At this stage, investors are fooled by a corrupted trading algorithm about the true evolution of stock market data and prices. does not necessarily belong to this category.

The criminals use their own unilaterally defined price values to calculate profits. This means that the service provider has all the control over whether a profit is obtained or not.

Until the supposed profits are distributed, this swindle will continue. If the investor demands the distribution, the buyers suddenly no longer have access to their accounts and the direct client advisors associated with them. The majority of investors lose all their money invested in this fraudulent trade, forcing them to seek legal advice.

Keep an eye on other costs when trading online

Before investing with, find out how much of your investment amount is used to cover costs such as fees and commissions. This is a good time to fully check the information provided by the providers!

Investors must be informed of all fees charged and their effect on the return from financial service providers. In addition, the costs must be listed separately.

In the event that you request a presentation of any fees, financial service providers are under an obligation to provide you with this information.

For understandable reasons, a provider like is usually interested in as many trading transactions as possible. In many cases, the costs are so enormous that it is difficult to make a profit. The costs can even devour the invested money in a very short time.

Therefore, be sure to pay attention to the costs! The broker’s trading fees must be publicly available. The transparency of the structure of the costs is likewise laid down in the official rules and regulations.

In the context of a violation, the provider can be deprived of its regulatory licence.

Get money back from Contact us

If you have already made investments with and now want to reclaim them, there are several methods.

  1. If no solution to the problem with the operator of the platform is guaranteed, a complaint should be filed with the responsible financial supervisory authority. The supervisory authority controls the case and has the possibility to order the provider to pay a refund amount. Our client will then receive this amount back from the provider. The addressees for complaints can be, among others, financial supervisory authorities and financial ombudsmen.
  2. If payments have been made abroad, the supervisory authorities and financial institutions based abroad should also be informed. They will then often initiate their own investigations. This, too, pursues the intention of seizing sums of money in the bank accounts and subsequently repaying them to our clients.
  3. Often, a solution to the problem can be found directly with the service provider. We are always able to reach out-of-court settlements with service providers. Our clients then recover all or part of their payment.
  4. Should a review by our lawyers reveal that the platform operator may have acted in a dubious manner, we file criminal charges with the competent authorities on behalf of our clients. Our law firm is in constant exchange with public prosecutors’ offices that conduct nationwide investigations. Often there are many hundreds or even thousands of aggrieved investors in these investigative proceedings. The investigations regularly extend to other states as well. In the past years, the public prosecutor’s offices have repeatedly had great success in their investigations.
  5. If the providers were to be arrested, claims by the injured parties can be asserted in court proceedings. For this purpose, we accompany our clients through the so-called adhesion procedure. This puts us in a position to obtain court titles for our clients against the alleged service providers. As a rule, these can then be directly enforced against the confiscated assets of the perpetrators.
  6. If there is a suspicion that the accounts to which our clients have transferred funds are part of a money laundering system, it is possible to have these bank accounts blocked. Payments to these accounts can then be reclaimed from the receiving bank.
