Trendstone Group – safe trading with high leverage?

Currently, there is an enormously high number of online trading platforms such as Trendstone Group. As a result, investing in the unpredictable financial markets has never been as easy but also as uncertain as it is today.

Especially because there are so many options, choosing a broker can be time-consuming and intimidating. Especially if it is to meet your individual investment needs.

Have you already invested with Trendstone Group? In this case, the following aspects are relevant for you as an investor.

  • A good place to start for investors who want to find out about shares, futures, binary options and cryptocurrencies is a website like this one.
  • Access to cross-border exchanges is becoming more convenient and affordable for investors through online investing.
  • Authority-regulated brokers on the internet, secure portals, fees and brokerage charges, product options and customer feedbacks are just some of the points to consider when making your final choice.
  • There are many types of orders that can be used in online trading.

The following are general suggestions for investors – regardless of the platform you invest in.

Trendstone Group fact check: Why you should really check every service provider in advance very carefully

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

  • Is there a complete imprint on the website?
  • Do not use remote maintenance software to gain access to your end devices.
  • Don’t be fooled by claims of excessive profits without the risk of losing investments.
  • Ask yourself: What is the name of the contact person I should get in touch with?
  • Is a company like Trendstone Group listed in the company database of the relevant EU control authority?
  • Find out as much as you can about the trading company and the goods you want to buy (Google, blog entries, online map services).
  • What city is the company’s headquarters in?
  • Do not accept unsolicited investment recommendations from strangers via telephone solicitations or emails.

Does Trendstone Group require quick action on investments?

Do you feel the pressure of a tight deadline? Is the broker enticing you with a special offer, but you are under pressure to make a timely decision?

This is not an ideal idea at all, because it is often a ruse. Don’t rush into anything! Not only can you get reliable offers now, but you can also invest with Trendstone Group in the future.

To get to their goal, scammers know in detail what they have to do. They make an effort to get as much information as they can about their targeted person through favourably worded requests. They also ask about the constitution of the interlocutor, e.g. whether he or she is home alone or whether he or she keeps financial resources at home.

Likewise, they use a tactic of “wait and see” to make the person desperate. You can keep your counterpart on the phone for a very long time until he or she agrees to go to the house bank and give the criminals money and other valuables.

In one of these scams, time pressure is imposed on the injured party. With this measure, the victim is encouraged to leave his own caution aside.

Topical support scams use the same method. Since the computer of the person contacted is allegedly infected by an exceptionally serious virus, the callers, who presumably act on behalf of Microsoft or a financial service provider such as Trendstone Group, demand urgent payment of a maintenance contract in English with an Indian accent.

The rip-off artists maximise the pressure by threatening the targeted individuals to make them pay if their computer is infected and transmits the infections.

What financing instruments does the grey capital market offer?

Only a small proportion of financial market participants, such as Trendstone Group, are subject to official regulation and supervision. In the grey capital market, providers trade who do not need BaFin approval at all and have nothing more to follow than some regulatory requirements.

Only invest in the grey capital market if you are sure of the company’s creditworthiness and it is known to you as a company. As I said, the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority has no control over these service providers at all.

The grey capital market holds a variety of possibilities. There are:

  • Loans with subordination clauses
  • Profit participation rights and other hybrid bond forms
  • Ordinary bonds
  • Crowdfunding offers
  • Corporate investments
  • Direct investments such as in timber, precious metals or other commodities

One thing is certain: it is unclear what the final outcome will be for the investor.

Do you find it difficult to keep track of the advertised offers? Then you should find out as much information as possible before making a decision.

Don’t buy anything you don’t fully understand! When it comes to investments, the more expertise you need, the more complicated the product.

It is also not advisable to focus all your money on one product. Spread your risk beyond Trendstone Group.

To avoid being influenced incorrectly, always focus on the product itself rather than the name or reputation of the financial service.

Recognising investment fraud in general

Do you want to invest with Trendstone Group? Then you should find out all the relevant information about the company.

Investment fraud is a special form of fraud. The criminal promises or deceives a large group of people about a profitable investment in the capital market.

Capital investment fraud is sanctioned with a prison sentence of up to three years or a fine according to § 264a StGB.

The following services and strategies can sometimes be considered as capital investment fraud:

  • Participations in companies
  • Participations in share certificates, funds and certificates
  • Fraudsters use the brand name of the provider, Trendstone Group, and clone the company
  • Unsolicited telephone advertising calls, so-called cold calling

Anyone who has fallen for investment scams has often invested a lot of money. What can you do in case of investment fraud?

  1. Withdraw from the contract or contest it: Affected persons who have concluded a contract can withdraw or contest it in the case of investment fraud.
  2. Involve the police and the financial supervisory authority via a legal advisor: There are police collection procedures against specific fraudulent companies in the FRG and also in other countries. The police are authorised to have the bank accounts of the rip-off artists blocked and the assets seized. The public prosecutor’s office is also involved.
  3. Retrieve capital: If payments have been realised via credit card, this can be retrieved in various cases by ordering a law firm to do so. In the case of bank transfers from the current account, this can usually be recovered by bank order.
  4. Claim damages: People who have been advised incorrectly can claim damages from the investment advisor.

Keep an eye on other costs when trading online

Before investing with Trendstone Group, find out how much of your investment will be used to cover costs such as fees and commissions. This is a good time to take a detailed look at the information provided by the service providers!

Investors must be made aware of all fees charged and how they affect the profit margin of financial service providers. Furthermore, remuneration must be listed separately.

If you request a breakdown of all costs, the investment service providers are obliged to provide you with this information.

An online broker such as Trendstone Group is normally interested in as many trading transactions as possible for understandable reasons. Often the costs are so exorbitant that it is difficult to make a profit. The fees can even eat up the invested money in a short time.

Therefore, be sure to pay attention to the costs! The broker’s trading fees must be accessible to everyone. The transparency of the cost structure is also stipulated in the legal requirements and regulations.

In connection with a violation, the service provider’s licence can be revoked.

Lawyers inform about Trendstone Group

Have you invested with Trendstone Group, or another service provider? Now you are encountering problems with the payout?

Then it is advisable to block further payments immediately. This is especially true if the broker suggests additional payments to compensate for losses.

In addition, one should attempt to recover the lost capital. In this context, aggrieved parties can seek investor protection and contact the lawyers of our law firm. Our law firm examines both civil and criminal law options as well as possible claims for damages against the financial provider and against involved payment service providers such as financial institutions.

“One can by no means speak of an exceptional case if a private investor loses money in the course of online trading. Many private investors are deceived by the professional behaviour of the service providers and do not realise in time that they are not responsible for their losses.”

Our advice is therefore not to resign, but to react swiftly and actively. Because the chance of recovering the lost capital is often greater than the aggrieved private investors think.
