  • Access to the global financial markets is made easier and more interesting for investors through online investing.

The following information is general advice for investors – regardless of the platform in which you invest capital.

Checklist InvesaCapital: Protect yourself from risks and dangers in online trading

The following list serves to protect you from platforms with dubious intentions.

  • Find out as much as you can about the company and the commodity you want to buy (Google, forums, online card services).
  • Identity theft is a serious nuisance: please do not hand over a photocopy of your identity card. Rip-off artists often ask you to do this.
  • Where is the provider’s head office?
  • Do not be blinded by promises of enormously high profits without the risk of losing funds.
  • Do not accept unwanted investment recommendations from strangers via advertising calls or e-mails.
  • Is the trading service provider InvesaCapital a company licensed by BaFin or in another EU country?
  • Is a provider like InvesaCapital listed in the company database of the specific EU supervisory authority?

Cold Calling – how does this illegal scam work and does InvesaCapital also work like this?

Have you received a phone call from a stranger in the past who made you a special offer? Under no circumstances should you respond to it without further investigation. Unsolicited calls are not allowed. “Cold calling is clearly forbidden at investment service providers and similar companies such as InvesaCapital. There are also people who claim to work for trustworthy web trading platforms. In this way, they want to get people to give them their personal data.

Most of the time, after your very first payment, you are asked to deposit more funds. Phone scammers are always coming up with new ways to rob investors of their savings, cash and other valuables. A common strategy of the crooks is to call the people they want to harm at inconvenient times of the day. This is, for example, very early in the morning or very late at night. Times, in other words, when they are most vulnerable.

In addition, the criminals pretend at the beginning of the conversation that they and the person being called know each other. The other possibility is to pretend that the callers are willing to help. By doing this, the perpetrators give the person they are talking to on the phone a feeling of sympathy and trust. Check whether you are really dealing with the company InvesaCapital when you are contacted by telephone.

Does investor protection exist in the grey capital market?

Only a few of the financial market participants such as InvesaCapital are subject to official regulation and supervision. In the grey capital market, investment service providers are positioned that do not need a licence from BaFin and do not have to comply with anything other than a few regulatory requirements. Only make an investment in the grey capital market if you are convinced of the company’s creditworthiness and it is known to you as a company.

As already mentioned, the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority has no control over these service providers. The grey capital market holds a wealth of opportunities. There are:

  • Crowdfunding offers
  • Profit participation rights and other hybrid forms of bonds
  • Equity investments
  • Ordinary bonds
  • Loans with subordination covenant

One thing is certain: it is unclear how it will ultimately turn out for the investor. Is it difficult for you to understand the advertised financial product? Then you should find out as much information as possible before making a decision. Do not invest in anything you do not fully understand! When it comes to financial transactions, the more knowledge you need, the more complicated the financial instrument.

It also doesn’t make sense to concentrate all your capital on one product. Spread your risk beyond InvesaCapital. To avoid being influenced inappropriately, always focus on the product itself rather than the brand name or the presentation of the financial service.

Do you suspect investment fraud? How to recognise the fraud

You want to invest money with InvesaCapital? In this case, you should find out all elementary information about the company. Investment fraud is a special form of fraud. The criminal promises or deceives a larger circle of people about a lucrative capital investment on the capital market. Capital investment fraud is sanctioned by a prison sentence of up to three years or a fine according to § 264a StGB. The following services and tactics may be considered as capital investment fraud:

  • Unsolicited telephone advertising calls, so-called cold calling
  • Investments in securities, funds and certificates
  • Boiler room scam, a cold call in which investors are sought by telephone call
  • Criminals use the brand name of the provider InvesaCapital and clone the company

Those who have fallen for investment fraudsters have often invested a lot of financial resources. What can you do in case of investment fraud?

  1. Involve police authorities and financial regulators through legal counsel: Police collective proceedings exist against certain fraudulent companies in the Federal Republic of Germany and also in other countries. The criminal investigation department is entitled to have the accounts of the rip-off artists blocked and the money seized. In addition, the public prosecutor’s office is called in.
  2. Withdraw or contest contracts: Affected persons who have concluded a contract can withdraw or contest it in the case of investment fraud.
  3. Assert claims for damages: Clients who were not advised correctly can assert claims for damages against the investment advisor.
  4. Reclaiming capital: If payments have been made via credit card, in many cases this can be reclaimed by using a law firm. In the case of bank transfers from the current account, this can usually be recovered by bank order.

Unsolicited offers to retrieve investments?

Anyone who has ever lost capital to a fraudulent investment platform knows how devastating that can be. That alone is bad enough. But on top of that, the rip-off artists behind the bogus model contact you in a short time by email or phone. This time, however, they do not pretend to be online brokers from InvesaCapital. Instead, they guarantee to help recover the lost money in exchange for an upfront payment.

Many scammers even appear to have been hired or authorised by trusted companies such as a financial authority. After stealing your personal information, the rip-off artists often pose as good Samaritans. They promise to assist you in recovering the stolen money. Even if you have invested money with a service provider like InvesaCapital, your data may be stolen. Those who have lost an immense amount of money are predominantly desperate.

Criminals take advantage of people’s worry by calling themselves “recovery” companies. They offer their services under the guise of helping them recover their capital. That is, they make dubious assurances that they will get back the capital they have lost.

Recovering from InvesaCapital – consult a law firm

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

  1. As soon as no solution is possible with the platform operator, it is possible to file a complaint with the responsible authority. This authority examines the situation and may order the service provider to pay a refund. Our client then receives this amount of money back from the provider. Complaints bodies can be, for example, financial supervisory authorities or financial ombudsmen.
  2. If an evaluation by our lawyers shows that the provider has probably acted dishonestly, we file a complaint with the responsible authorities on behalf of our clients. Our law firm is in constant exchange with public prosecutors’ offices, which manage nationwide investigations. Often there are many hundreds or even thousands of victims in these proceedings. The investigations also regularly extend to other EU countries. In recent years, there have been significant investigative successes by the public prosecutor’s offices time and again.
  3. Often a solution to the problem can be worked out with the provider himself. Time and again, our lawyers manage to reach out-of-court settlements with the platforms. Our clients then get their entire investment or part of it back.
  4. If there is a suspicion that the money accounts into which our clients have deposited are part of a money laundering scheme, these bank accounts can be blocked. Transfers to these accounts can then be reclaimed from the receiving bank.
