AbbInvest: Transparent information on abbinvest.com!
What do the perplexed prospective investors have to receive on abbinvest.com? "Tremisa Ltd provides world-class commodity and foreign exchange trading services to meet the needs of commodity trading clients since the company's inception in 2005...Tremisa Ltd is a UK registered company authorized and regulated in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority...The value we provide is second to none...In addition to providing favorable trading conditions to stimulate high profits for our clients, we also ensure the availability and security of funds." This is just one small passage of the implausible claims that interested parties can find on AbbInvest's website. Not one of these full-bodied assurances by AbbInvest has been fulfilled. Regrettably, the dubious business practices rather provide for disappointed investors and bad experiences!
AbbInvest: Hide-and-seek game with the domain entry!
Remarkable for the business practices of the AbbInvest makers is that the website does not contain an imprint. Thus, the complete information about the legally responsible operators of the website is missing. If one takes a look at the domain data of the website of AbbInvest, there are no references to the operators to be found. However, one learns that the domain was already registered with NameCheap, Inc. on 09/14/2020. The real domain owners hide behind the Icelandic anonymization service Withheld for Privacy ehf.
AbbInvest: Who is behind it?
Answering this question will be rather difficult for many investors, as the AbbInvest makers do everything to conceal the true circumstances. However, this is nothing unusual. The perpetrators usually operate several of these websites with the same fraudulent business model. These are created in advance, quickly put online and just as quickly shut down. The top-level domain is often changed to deceive financial regulators and law enforcement agencies. But who is the operator? There is scant information about this on the AbbInvest website. The company Tremisa Ltd. with the business address Beachmont Business Centre, 192, Kingstown, St.Vincent and the Grenadines is indicated, but the makers of AbbInvest cannot be found under this address.
AbbInvest: The customer acquisition of the investment fraudsters
Here the same procedure can be found again and again: In order to acquire new customers, the offers of AbbInvest are advertised in all possible media and channels. Most of the time the offers are false information. To increase the effect, they upload films on Youtube in which interested investors are convinced with false references. Here, supposed celebrities report on their experiences with online trading and cryptocurrencies, often with a misleading reference to the TV show "Die Höhle der Löwen". With the same intention, an affiliate program is usually started to incite others to intensively promote AbbInvest.
AbbInvest: criminal business practices
As soon as the customer has registered on the trading platform, he receives calls from alleged financial brokers who like to refer to their years of experience and their satisfied customer base. In many cases, however, the makers of this business model are fraudsters, against whom the Federal Criminal Police Office and the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin) also warn. Usually the investors start with a small sum as employment. Beforehand, investors are also often motivated to install remote maintenance software, such as AnyDesk or TeamViewer on their computers, so that assistance can supposedly be provided with the first steps. In many cases, the computer is subsequently manipulated and unwanted transactions are carried out. In the process, the investment fraudsters also frequently gain access to their victims' online banking. What is particularly criminal, however, is when supposed profits are displayed on the trading platform in order to entice the customer to place further high stakes. In some cases, even small sums are returned in order to lull investors into a sense of security. Who then does not want to further increase the stakes? But what happens next?
AbbInvest: Repayment of the money is attached to conditions
Once in, exit is mostly impossible. Rather, the administrators of the investment scammers tie a repayment of the money to further deposits. This is where employees come in, claiming alleged tax debts and commission payments. If these are settled, it would come to the disbursement of the allegedly obtained profits. The perpetrators send the investors self-made tax and commission statements, often decorated with fake coats of arms. These would have to be paid urgently. A clearing with the allegedly obtained profits, is never possible. If an investor refuses further deposits, alleged profits are converted by senseless transactions into losses and the customer maximally damaged. This is not the end of the horror, but investors are permanently confronted with calls from other dubious providers. This indicates that the contact details of the investors are further traded among the investment fraudsters. In the end, a "savior" regularly comes forward, claiming to have uncovered the whole scam. He impresses with his insider knowledge. No wonder, since he is part of the fraud gang. The next rip-off! And of course, the "savior" wants a small fee - in advance!
AbbInvest: Scheme of investment fraud?
There is no authorization of the online broker AbbInvest. AbbInvest lacks the legitimacy of a recognized European financial regulator, such as the English Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) or the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySec), which is often used by brokers.
