Indigo Capitals - CONSOB warning of traders

The apparent online broker Indigo Capitals sells itself as a serious platform for online trading in CFDs, Forex, and other asset classes. More and more investors are reporting telephone terror, rip-offs, and investment fraud in connection with Indigo Capitals. Many have lost their money invested with Indigo Capitals. Serious doubts are being raised. Meanwhile, many Indigo Capitals investors feel that it is an investment scam. The Indigo Capitals website is still accessible. All Indigo Capitals investors are wondering if they have been victims of an investment scam? And what can Indigo Capitals investors do if the suspicion of investment fraud is substantiated? How can Indigo Capitals investors get their money back? Does it make sense to file a criminal complaint against Indigo Capitals with the police? What help is available in the event of investment fraud?


Indigo Capitals: Doubtful Assurances
What is being served up to the astonished traders on "As a reputable broker, Indigo Capitals maintains a high level of equity capitalisation and guarantees maximum transparency as well as clear business reporting. Our clients' funds are held separately from our funds in European Tier 1 banks. The protection of our traders is our absolute priority." This is just a small sample of the questionable promises investors will find on Indigo Capitals' website. None of these lofty promises made by Indigo Capitals have been fulfilled. Unpleasantly, the suspect business practices rather make for disappointed investors and miserable experiences!


Indigo Capitals: Hide-and-seek game with the domain entry!
Remarkable for the business practices of the Indigo Capitals 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 Indigo Capitals website, there are no references to the operators. However, one learns that the domain was only registered on 02.04.2021 with NameCheap, Inc. The real domain owners are hiding behind the anonymisation service Withheld for Privacy ehf.


Indigo Capitals: Who is behind it?
Many investors will find it rather difficult to answer this question, as the makers of Indigo Capitals do everything they can 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 on the net, and just as quickly shut down. The top-level domain is often changed to deceive the financial supervisory and law enforcement authorities. But who is the operator? There is scant information about this on the Indigo Capitals website. The company Omegaistic LLC with the business address First Floor, First St Vincent Bank LTD Building, James Street, Kingstown, St Vincent, and the Grenadines is given, but the makers of Indigo Capitals cannot be found under this address. In addition, there is the obligatory support e-mail address and the German telephone number +4930700107209. A worldwide search for Indigo Capitals in the relevant registers leads to no result. This makes it clear that this is a pure fantasy product.


Indigo Capitals: The customer acquisition of the investment fraudsters
The same procedure can be found here again and again: To gain new customers, the recommendations of Indigo Capitals are advertised in all conceivable media and channels. Again and again, these are false promises. To increase the deception, they upload promotional films on YouTube in which prospective clients 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 aim, an affiliate programme is often launched to encourage others to promote Indigo Capitals.


Indigo Capitals: 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. Investors usually start with a small amount of money. Beforehand, investors are often motivated to install remote maintenance software such as AnyDesk or TeamViewer on their computers so that they can supposedly receive help with the first steps. In many cases, the computer is manipulated afterward and unwanted transactions are carried out. In the process, the investment fraudsters often also 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. Sometimes even small sums are paid back to lull investors into a sense of security. Who then does not want to increase the stakes further? But what happens next?


Indigo Capitals: Repayment of money is conditional
Once in, it is usually impossible to get out. Instead, the administrators of the investment scams 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, the alleged profits are paid out. The perpetrators send investors self-made tax and commission statements, often decorated with fake coats of arms. These would have to be paid urgently. It is never possible to offset them against the alleged profits. If an investor refuses to make further deposits, supposed profits are turned into losses through senseless transactions and the client is damaged to the maximum. The horror does not end there, but investors are permanently confronted with calls from other dubious providers. This indicates that the investors' contact details are traded among the investment fraudsters. In the end, a "saviour" regularly calls 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 department! And of course, the "saviour" also wants a small fee - upfront!


Indigo Capitals: Scheme of investment fraud?
There is no authorisation of the online broker Indigo Capitals. Indigo Capitals lacks regulation by a recognised European supervisory authority, 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 approval from the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority ( finma) or the Financial Market Authority ( FMA) of Austria, which is responsible for Switzerland. It is hard to overlook the fact that Indigo Capitals is a scheme of capital investment fraud. All investors harmed by Indigo Capitals are advised to consult an investment fraud lawyer as soon as possible.


Indigo Capitals: where do the fraudsters operate?
Certainly, Indigo Capitals investors are dealing with investment fraud in Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Unfortunately, Indigo Capitals' activities were not limited to German-speaking countries. Because Indigo Capitals also targets traders from France, Spain, Poland, and Russia, it is only a matter of time that the defrauded from these countries will come forward. Going through the list of regulators is recommended before making any financial commitment to reduce the risk of becoming a victim of investment fraud.


Indigo Capitals: Investors want their money back!
Fortunately, the situation is not as hopeless as it seems. The aggrieved investors can defend themselves and reclaim their invested capital. As of today, it is rather unlikely that the Indigo Capitals investment fraudsters will be caught soon, but there is still reason for hope. The reason for this is the fact that the money transactions took place via accounts that were provided by reputable financial institutions. Unfortunately, they neglected to check the investors' deposits, some of which were high and therefore subject to controls, and their forwarding for legality. This negligence made investment fraud possible in the first place.


Indigo Capitals: You want your money back! How does it work?
Equipped with this knowledge, the prospective investors would never have gotten involved in business with Indigo Capitals. Now the only way left for the victims is to try to get their money back. Many investors cannot even imagine that there is any real chance of ever seeing their money again. Definitely yes! There are numerous legal bases to fall back on. The generic term is "money laundering". When investment fraudsters collect money, the offense of money laundering has been committed. Financial institutions are obliged to take action against money laundering. This is where one starts with good chances of success. For this purpose, relevant questions have to be answered. Where did the funds misappropriated by Indigo Capitals go? Can investors somehow get back the money they invested with Indigo Capitals? What precautions are now necessary?
