The following information is basic advice for investors – regardless of the platform you invest in.
Does Warburg Investment have an official licence? You must pay attention to this
Both the financial markets and investor protection benefit from rules of conduct and organisational responsibilities. Equity services companies and providers such as Warburg Investment must comply with a wide range of standards of conduct. The same applies to their employees. This is intended to circumvent conflicts of interest and the associated disadvantages for investors.
This includes the obligation of the financial services provider to inform its own clients about the most significant features of a securities transaction before it is concluded. This applies both to the respective investor and to the investment itself. According to the idea, additional information is necessary for clients who wish to engage in highly speculative or risky transactions. Towards their clients, firms like Warburg Investment have a duty of care.
This goes far beyond the provision of an offer or service. Does the provider have a licence to sell investment products? You should definitely check this. In this context, you can use the broker check directory of a financial supervisory authority and type the brand name of the service provider into the search mask.
Contact request via telephone call – Have you had any experience with Warburg Investment?
Have you taken a call from a stranger in the past who presented you with an offer? Under no circumstances should you respond without checking carefully. Unsolicited calls are prohibited. “Cold calling” is clearly not permitted with securities service providers and similar companies such as Warburg Investment. There are also people who claim to work for reliable web trading platforms. In doing so, they want to get people to give them their sensitive information.
Often, after your initial payment, you are instructed 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 tactic used by swindlers 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 least concentrated.
In addition, the lawbreakers pretend at the beginning of the conversation that they and the person being called are known to each other. The other method works as if the callers are customer-oriented. In this way, the perpetrators give the person they are talking to on the phone a feeling of sympathy and trust. Check whether you are truly dealing with the Warburg Investment company when you are contacted by telephone.
Pump and Dump – the common scam method
The term pump and dump is used to describe a situation in which the price of a share is unnaturally inflated by insiders. Subsequently, the same share is sold at a loss to the rest of the investors. Accordingly, this is a fraud. A manipulation that profits from the ignorance of small investors and stock market novices. This approach is therefore prohibited in a controlled stock market and for companies like Warburg Investment.
The crypto market, on the other hand, is still largely “Wild West” as far as such tactics are concerned. For this reason, extreme caution is advised! 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 self-created currency.
They achieve this by propagating false information on the WWW or in social media or by luring co-investors with unreasonable profit expectations. So make sure that the Warburg Investment provider provides you with all the necessary information on this subject, if requested.
If the broker refuses to pay out
Investors are very often wooed by an “online broker” or a call centre employee as soon as they have registered on the apparent online trading platform. The aim is to get the investor to increase his permanent investments in order to maximise profit. This is also an initially legal goal of the provider Warburg Investment. Shortly after the investor has deposited his capital, preliminary profit developments will probably be presented to his user account.
This should encourage the investor to continue investing in the financial product. The website operators, on the other hand, can use fraud software to simulate fake account changes and earnings without the consumer being aware of this.
Check that the accounts can be authorised equally with Warburg Investment.
In reality, no trading takes place at all on quite a few platforms. Instead, the deposited capital is transferred by the fraudsters to accounts outside Germany’s borders. This is not registered by the customers for the time being. The “brokers” delay the payout of the reported winnings by demanding that the investors pay the taxes and processing costs that are allegedly incurred. These tricks only serve the purpose of increasing profits.
Sooner or later, communication breaks down completely. The invested capital is used up. From that moment on, the only thing left to do is to go to a lawyer to take further steps.
How high are the order fees for online trading?
Before investing with Warburg Investment, find out how much of your investment sum is used to cover costs such as fees and commissions. This is a good time to examine the information provided by the service providers in detail! Investors must be notified of all costs charged and their effect on the profit margin of financial service providers. Furthermore, the remunerations must be listed individually.
If you request a detailed overview of any costs, the financial service providers are obliged to provide you with this information. For obvious reasons, a broker such as Warburg Investment is usually interested in as many transactions as possible. Often the fees are so high that it is difficult to make a profit. The fees can even eat up the invested assets in a short time. Therefore, be sure to take the costs into account! The broker’s trading fees must be publicly available.
The clarity of the structure of the costs is also set out in the official specifications and licences. If there is a violation, the official licence can be withdrawn from the provider.
Losses with Warburg Investment – What you can do
You have invested money with Warburg Investment, or another provider? Now you are encountering obstacles to repatriation? Then it is advisable to block further payments immediately. This is especially true if the dealer recommends additional payments to compensate for losses. In addition, one should try to recover the lost capital. In this regard, aggrieved parties can seek investor protection and turn to the lawyers of our law firm.
We examine civil law as well as criminal law possibilities and possible claims for damages against the company and against involved payment service providers such as financial institutions.
“A private investor who loses money in the course of online trading is truly not an isolated case. Many investors are blinded by the professional behaviour of the service providers and only realise too late that they are not responsible for their losses.”
Our advice is therefore not to resign, but to act promptly and actively. Because the chance of recovering the lost capital is often greater than the aggrieved private investors assume.
