Declaring the responsible actors by name is a sign of transparency. At the time of writing, there are no statements on the website of DC Witter Group regarding the persons responsible for the content.

Is there an imprint?

In Germany, according to §5 of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), there is a basic obligation to provide imprint information. This “labelling” obligation applies to all commercially operated WWW pages. This is because the information is intended to inform the user of a website who is behind the website.

Finally, the address of the website operator plays a role in this context, if legal claims are to be enforced against the operator. Furthermore, the fact that the provision of an imprint also applies to financial providers located abroad who conduct their business activities in the Federal Republic of Germany is relevant here.

In December 2021, no legally binding imprint could be found on the company’s website.

Contact details

What information can be found on the provider’s website?

  • Address: 32/F, Vertical Square, 28 Heung Yip Rd, Wong Chuk Hang, Hong Kong
  • Telephone: 00852 3008 8952
  • E-mail address: info[a]dcwittergroup.com

If there is a dispute, the long distance between the provider and the private investor can make it difficult to clarify. In principle, investors within the European Union enjoy somewhat more security and more opportunities to enforce their rights – also and especially in the case of losses – if necessary with the help of legal assistance.

Which European financial supervisory authorities monitor the company?

As of December 2021, the company does not disclose any supervision by a European financial supervisory authority such as the Comisión Nacional de Mercado de Valores (CNMV, Spain), the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySec, Cyprus) or the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA, United Kingdom).

As a result, one should not assume without doubt that the broker is in possession of the necessary authorisations required to conduct business in the European Economic Area.

Official warnings from authorities on DC Witter Group

Warnings are periodically issued by financial supervisory authorities and law firms. This does not automatically mean that fraud is involved in every case. As of December 2021, we had not received any official warning notices from European financial supervisory authorities on the subject of DC Witter Group.

Digression: Rip-offs lure in social media channels

Competition for the first positions on the results pages of search engines like Bing or Google is fierce. Therefore, it is becoming more and more challenging for fraudulent financial providers to make their service noticeable to the public.

Accordingly, they are setting their sights on other opportunities, with social networks in particular in their sights. There, the alleged providers place ads that can be played out in a highly targeted manner thanks to the targeting possibilities of Instagram and Facebook.

Of course, the social networks have now taken machine and human safeguards to avoid ads from scammers. However, this is not always successful. If one clicks on such an advertisement, one is redirected to a website where one is confronted with exaggerated profit guarantees.

The aim of the scammers is to gain the confidence of the financier in order to encourage him to deposit his money. In addition to advertisements, one can also get into a dialogue in which one is to be persuaded to register with a Ponzi scheme, i.e. a fraudulent pyramid scheme.

In doing so, one buys participation and participates proportionally in the payments of later members. However, there are rarely any real traded goods; it is all about a self-feeding system.

In addition, there are other scams such as the use of bots, i.e. automatic conversation partners that disguise themselves behind a profile. Such an artificial conversation usually results in the recommendation of a special online broker that offers favourable conditions and fabulous surplus prospects.
