CC Funds Capital: Questionable promises on the website www.ccfundscapital.ltd!
What do unsuspecting investors have to receive on ccfundscapital.ltd? "We offer competitive and transparent fee structures for virtually every type of fund structure, including UCITs, professional investor funds, alternative investment funds, and private equity funds...We use state-of-the-art, comprehensive fund accounting systems that are fully integrated and provide flexible reporting as needed...Our systems allow us to automate processes and generate comprehensive reports that add value to our clients and make day-to-day operations easier." That's just a small portion of the implausible promises investors can find on CC Funds Capital's website. Not one of these lofty promises by CC Funds Capital has been kept. Unfortunately, the questionable business conduct rather provides for unhappy investors and miserable experiences!
CC Funds Capital: Hide-and-seek game with the domain entry!
Remarkable for the business practices of the CC Funds Capital 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 CC Funds Capital, there are no references to the operators to be found. However, one learns that the domain was registered with NameCheap, Inc. only on 19.03.2021. The real domain owners hide behind the Icelandic anonymization service Withheld for Privacy ehf.
CC Funds Capital: Who is behind it?
Answering this question will be rather difficult for many investors, as the CC Funds Capital 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 website of CC Funds Capital, there is only very sparse information about this. It does mention the company CC Funds Capital (Malta) Limited but there is no connection to it, rather the ccfundscapital.ltd website is a clone of ccfundservices.com. There is neither the obligatory support email address nor a phone number. A worldwide search for CC Funds Capital in the relevant registers yields no results. This makes it clear that this is a pure fantasy product.
CC Funds Capital: The customer acquisition of the investment fraudsters
Here again and again the same proceeding is found: To acquire new investors, the offers of CC Funds Capital are presented in all possible media and channels. Often enough, the offers are false claims. To increase the effectiveness, 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 the erroneous reference to the TV show "Die Höhle der Löwen". With the same intention, an affiliate program is often started to spur others to beat the advertising drum for CC Funds Capital.
CC Funds Capital: 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. 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 increase the stakes further? But what happens next?
CC Funds Capital: Repayment of money is subject to conditions
Once in, 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!
CC Funds Capital: Scheme of investment fraud?

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 Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA) dated 13.09.2021. This is the supervisory authority for the financial market and financial services in Malta.
