EnerixInvest – credible offers?

Currently there is an enormous number of providers such as EnerixInvest. As a result, investing in the unpredictable financial markets has never been as easy but also as uncertain as it is now. Especially because there are so many options, choosing a provider can be time-consuming and intimidating.

Especially if you want them to meet your individual investment needs. Are you thinking about investing with EnerixInvest? Then the following points are significant for you as an investor.

  • Authority-regulated brokers on the internet, trustworthy portals, costs and commissions, offering options and reviews from clients are just some of the factors you need to consider when making your final decision.
  • Access to the global stock markets is becoming more convenient and affordable for capital investors through online investing.
  • A very good place to go for investors who want to learn about share certificates, futures, binary options and cryptocurrencies is a website like this one.
  • In online trading, a large number of order types can be used.

The following information is a general suggestion for investors – regardless of the platform you are investing in.

Identify trustworthy service providers and invest profitably

Investors have a wide range of investment options to choose from, with professional and questionable service providers competing for their favour. There are many indications that a service as well as an offer is not reputable, and it is weighty to keep an eye out.

Here you will learn what details to look out for, assuming you are investing your hard-earned capital. Banking, financial services and insurance companies like EnerixInvest are only allowed to operate in the Federal Republic of Germany with state authorisation.

The companies have received authorisation, but this in no way means that the services they sell are of excellent quality. In the event that a prospectus or information sheet approved by the German financial authorities has been published in advance, share certificates and investments may also be made available to the general public.

The Federal Financial Supervisory Authority shall only ensure that prospectuses are complete, comprehensible and coherent. The prospectus or the information sheet of EnerixInvest is by no means necessary in every context.

Before investing money, you should consider your permanent objectives and whether you have the financial means to achieve them. Do not rush the process. Before putting your assets into an investment, take time to weigh the pros and cons. Do not make an immediate decision, even if you have consulted with others.

Has EnerixInvest contacted you by fax or e-mail?

Have you ever received investment offers by e-mail from a provider like EnerixInvest that you are not familiar with? Do you receive faxes from the stock exchange that you have in no way requested? Or have you received a supposed “insider tip”?

Investors should beware of such tips, because they are often spread by criminal groups or brokers who want to make a profit by selling shares from a false success story. Cases have also come to light in which consumers and investors are called or written to by an alleged stock exchange supervisory authority.

It is falsely said that the persons contacted have become victims of a fraud and that the personal data has been passed on to the stock exchange supervisory authority by the apparent Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office in Karlsruhe.

The persons written to are asked to fill out an online form. This is a clear attempt at fraud. We advise you in any case not to contact this person or to provide personal data such as user names, passwords, credit card numbers or other identifying information such as your account data at EnerixInvest.

Ponzi scheme – quickly explained

A pyramid scheme, or Ponzi scheme, is a type of money fraud. In it, money is collected from new investors and then used to pay out capital to the previously victimised individuals. The organisers of Ponzi schemes usually stress that they would invest your capital and earn exorbitant returns without putting your capital at risk.

Nevertheless, in many Ponzi schemes, the fraudsters do not actually invest the money they receive. Rather, it is applied to pay off people who paid in earlier. This way, the criminals can keep some of the money for themselves. So pay attention to the risk-reward ratio in all investments – including EnerixInvest.

Ponzi schemes need a continued inflow of fresh money to keep running, as they have very little or no real profits. Many of these structures fail when it becomes arduous to generate new backers or when a significant number of investors drop out.

In the event that you wish to invest capital with a broker such as EnerixInvest, you should always act with prudence. Among the clues you should look out for are:

  • Is there a problem with the documentation? If there are errors on your account statement, it may be a clue that your money is not being invested according to plan.
  • The payment of winnings does not work? If you are unable to receive payments or find it difficult to cash out, you should be vigilant. Ponzi scheme operators may try to persuade participants to stick it out with the promise of even bigger cash winnings if they don’t withdraw money.
  • Strategies that are not easy to identify. Keep your money out of the stock market unless you know enough about it.
  • Risk-free profits with little or no volatility. Every investment involves a certain amount of risk, and the riskier an investment is, the more likely it is to yield a high return.
  • Investments that are not registered with financial regulators. In most cases, Ponzi schemes are unregistered investments that are not controlled by state authorities such as Bafin.
  • Selling without licensing: Investment professionals and firms must be licensed or registered under federal and state securities regulations. The vast majority of Ponzi schemes involve unlicensed individuals or firms.
  • Overly predictable outcomes. Over time, investments tend to rise and fall. Any investment of value that consistently produces positive returns detached from market conditions should be viewed with a high degree of scepticism.

Difficulties with payouts – seek legal assistance

Clients are often wooed by a “broker” or call centre employee once they have registered on the apparent trading platform. The intention is to encourage investors to increase their long-term investments in order to maximise profits. This is also an initially legitimate goal of the provider EnerixInvest.

Shortly after the customer has deposited his capital, the first profit developments will probably be shown on his user account. This should encourage the investor to continuously invest in the financial product.

The platform operators, however, can fake manipulated account movements and profits using fraud software, even without the buyer noticing.

Check that the accounts can also be authorised at EnerixInvest.

In reality, there is no trading at all on many online trading platforms. Instead, the money paid is transferred by the fraudsters to accounts outside Germany’s borders. This is not noticed by the investors for the time being.

The “providers” delay the payment of the stated income by demanding that the investors pay what appear to be taxes and commissions. These manipulations only serve the purpose of increasing profits. At a certain point, the connection breaks completely.

The invested capital is no longer there. From this point on, the only thing left to do is to go to a lawyer in order to launch the necessary measures.

Beware of contracts that leave no exit options at all

Find out when and how much money will be paid back to you. It is best to avoid long-term contracts that cannot be terminated early or where you would suffer significant monetary losses.

Only enter into long-term contracts without early termination options with financial service providers such as EnerixInvest, whose reliability you have no doubts about. Even if you have the chance to waive a contract at any time or to terminate it over a specified period of time, you should be sceptical.

Even when these criteria are in place, you still remain vulnerable to economic loss. Make sure you know in detail how much capital you will get back if the money deal goes wrong.

For share transactions, the following rule applies: Before the end of the contract period, find out what options are available to you to redeem a share certificate. It is often important to find out whether there is a liquid market for services such as those offered by EnerixInvest.

It is possible to sell share certificates through a broker or a financial institution. All three options are permissible for placing a sell order. The actual selling process is then completed via an exchange (e.g. Berlin, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Tradegate or Xetra) (e.g. for penny stocks).

With order supplements, the execution of the order can be controlled from the beginning. The sale of the share certificates takes place at a time and place determined by you.

In order to be able to weigh up whether you have a claim to a repayment against the broker EnerixInvest, it is always necessary to examine the individual case. The lawyers of the Herfurtner law firm will do this for you within the scope of a free initial consultation.

The starting point for this assessment is always the facts of the case as explained by you. In addition, similarities can often be drawn with similar cases. You therefore benefit from the extensive experience of our lawyers.

After the entire assessment of all documents and the legal classification, the action is first and foremost directed against the provider EnerixInvest itself, should certain breaches of duty be ascertainable.

In order to be able to prove these breaches of duty, the contract documents, the e-mail correspondence and, if necessary, supplementary documents must be evaluated. On top of that, licensed online trading providers are equally obliged to make and store telephone records of conversations with investors.

The request to hand over these recordings and the subsequent analysis is also a sensible and necessary step to enforce your claims.

On the basis of this evidence, claims of the customers can be enforced both in extrajudicial and in judicial proceedings under civil law.

The financial institutions and crypto exchanges that are on the receiving end should also be focused on here. Since the sums of money involved are very often considerable, the question repeatedly arises as to whether the companies have complied with their duties to provide information and their obligations under the Money Laundering Act.

A general statement cannot be made here; rather, the case of the individual must be examined. The same applies to the beneficiary on the recipient side, who is often not identical with the provider itself. Under certain conditions, the beneficiary can also be held liable if breaches of duty can be proven.

After all options under civil law have been exhausted, the procedure remains at the level of criminal law if the initial suspicion of an illegal act is substantiated. This requires contacting investigating authorities at home and abroad and coordinating further precautions.

In the meantime, many federal states have created special units for the subject areas of fraud offences in connection with online and crypto trading. The lawyers of the Herfurtner law firm are in constant contact with these units. Last but not least, providers can also offer helpful information on the domain holder.

However, it is extremely difficult for someone inexperienced to contact the web hosters, who are often based abroad. Financial supervisory authorities in Germany and abroad are also valuable contact points for investors who have suffered losses.

Apart from the complaint against the particular financial service provider, which is intended to protect other potential investors from investments, other details can be obtained from the financial supervisory authorities as a source of information, if necessary.

This information often allows investigative work in the FRG, Austria and Switzerland to be linked.
