The alleged online broker Capital.com pretends to be a reputable platform for online trading. However, there is a lot of information that unacceptable conditions prevail at Capital.com. More and more investors are reporting telephone terror, rip-offs, and investment fraud in connection with Capital.com. All have lost their money invested with Capital.com. Serious doubts are called for. Meanwhile, many Capital.com investors fear that it is an investment scam. The Capital.com website is still accessible. All Capital.com investors are wondering if they have fallen victim to an investment scam? And what can Capital.com investors do if the suspicion of investment fraud is substantiated? Will Capital.com investors get their money back? Does it make sense to file a criminal complaint against Capital.com with the police? Where can I get help with investment fraud?
Capital.com: Transparent promises on capital.com!
What are surprised traders being led to believe on capital.com? "Your next lucrative trading opportunity is just a few clicks away. With access to over 75 technical indicators, thousands of charts, client sentiment, price alerts, and 1:200 leverage (pros only), you can become a smarter trader than ever before." This is just a small sample of the suspect promises that interested parties can find on Capital.com's website. None of these full-bodied assurances from Capital.com have been kept. Unfortunately, the disturbing business practices rather provide for disappointed investors and bad experiences!
Capital.com: Hide-and-seek domain entry!
Remarkable for the business practices of the Capital.com 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 Capital.com website, there are no references to the operators. However, one learns that the domain was registered with Network Solutions, LLC on 05/14/1991, but it was not reactivated until 12/13/2021. The real domain owners are hiding behind the anonymization service PERFECT PRIVACY, LLC.
Capital.com: Who is behind it?
Answering this question will be rather difficult for many investors, as the makers of Capital.com 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 Capital.com website. The company Capital Com Bel with the business address 220030, Republic of Belarus, Minsk, Internatsionalnaya Street 36/1, Office 823 is indicated, but the creators of Capital.com cannot be found under this address. In addition, there is the obligatory support e-mail address and the telephone number +442080897893. The worldwide search for Capital.com in the relevant registers leads to no result. This makes it clear that this is a pure fantasy product.
Capital.com: The customer acquisition of the investment cheats
Here again and again the same proceeding is found: To acquire new investors the offers of Capital.com in all only conceivable media and channels are promoted. Not infrequently, these recommendations are false promises. To increase the effect they upload advertising filmlets on Youtube, in which interested investors are convinced with invented 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 goal, an affiliate program is often launched to spur others to intensively promote Capital.com.
Capital.com: 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 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. Investment fraudsters also frequently gain access to their victims' online banking in the process. 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 further increase the stakes? But what happens next?
Capital.com: Repayment of the money is linked 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 supposed 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!
Capital.com: Scheme of investment fraud?
There is no legitimization of the online broker Capital.com. Capital.com lacks authorization from 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. Likewise, there is no authorization from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (finma) or the Financial Market Authority (FMA) of Austria, which is responsible for Switzerland. It is not difficult to see that Capital.com is a scheme of capital investment fraud. All investors harmed by Capital.com are advised to contact an investment fraud lawyer as soon as possible.
Capital.com: where are the fraudsters active?
Unfortunately, the illegal activities of Capital.com are not limited to English-speaking countries.

A look at the list of regulators is recommended before any financial commitment to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of investment fraud.

Such delays enabled the investment fraudsters to carry out their criminal activities in the first place.
