AGA Trading: Questionable assurances
What are the dumbfounded investors on agatrading. the club made to believe? "Thanks to the AGA trading platform, you can profit greatly from the cryptocurrency market with our bot on Binance.... We work hard every day to ensure our arbitrage platform's highest possible security and efficiency." This is just a small excerpt of the questionable claims investors can find on AGA Trading's website. Not a single one of these lofty promises made by AGA Trading has been kept. Unpleasantly, the dubious business practices rather provide for disappointed investors and miserable experiences!
AGA Trading: Hide-and-seek game with the domain entry!
Remarkable for the business practices of the AGA Trading makers is that the web page 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 web page of AGA Trading, no references to the operators are to be found there. However, one learns that the domain was registered only on 22.01.2021 with NameCheap, Inc. The real domain owners hide behind the Icelandic anonymization service Withheld for Privacy ehf.
AGA Trading: Who is behind it?
Answering this question will be rather difficult for many investors, as the AGA Trading makers do everything to conceal the true circumstances. However, this is nothing unusual. The perpetrators mostly 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? On the AGA Trading website, there is only sparse information about this. Only the two companies AGA TRADING PLATFORM LTD. and AGA TRADING ASSET MANAGEMENT LTD. with the business address 27 Old Gloucester Street, London, WC1N 3AX, United Kingdom are given. In addition, there is the obligatory support e-mail address but no telephone number.
AGA Trading: The customer acquisition of the investment fraudsters
Here the same procedure can be found again and again: To attract new customers the offers of AGA Trading are propagated in all only conceivable media and channels. Mostly these recommendations are false promises. In addition, they upload videos on Youtube in which interested investors are convinced with fictitious references. Here, supposed celebrities report about their experiences with online trading and cryptocurrencies, often with the erroneous reference to the TV show "Die Höhle der Löwen". In parallel, an affiliate program is usually started to motivate others to beat the advertising drum for AGA Trading.
AGA Trading: 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 to entice the customer to place further high stakes. In some cases, even small sums are returned to lull investors into a sense of security. Who then does not want to increase the stakes further? But what happens next?
AGA Trading: Repayment of the money is tied to conditions
Once in, an exit is mostly impossible. Rather, the administrators of the investment scammers tie the 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 is 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!

Likewise, there is no approval from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (finma) or the Financial Market Authority (FMA) of Austria, which is responsible for Switzerland. For this, there is a warning from the Commissione Nazionale per le Società e la Borsa (CONSOB) dated 11.10.2021. This is the Italian supervisory authority for the financial market and financial services. It is not difficult to see that AGA Trading is a scheme of capital investment fraud.
