However, this is not unusual, as the perpetrators often operate several of these websites with the supposedly same business model and quickly put them online, but also shut them down again just as quickly. In many cases, the top-level domain is also frequently changed, possibly also in order to deceive the financial supervisory and law enforcement authorities. And who is the operator? There is no information about this on the website khhfinancial.com. One can only find the following information under the contact details:
11F Tokyo Square Garden, 3-1-1
Kyobashi, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Japan.

Kansai Halifax: 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. 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 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?
Kansai Halifax: Repayment of the money is linked to conditions
However, an exit is then usually no longer possible, rather a repayment of the money is linked to further deposits. This is where the employees come in, claiming alleged tax debts and commission payments. These would have to be settled first, then it would come to the disbursement of the allegedly obtained profits. For this purpose, tax and commission invoices are sent to the investors, which are often decorated with fake coats of arms and, of course, have to be paid urgently. However, it is never possible to offset these payments against the supposedly achieved profits. If one refuses to make these further payments, the supposed profits are often turned into losses and the customer is harmed to the maximum. However, this is usually not the end of the horror, but the investors are often permanently confronted with calls from other dubious providers, which indicates that the contact details of the investors are further traded among the investment scammers. In the end, the "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" also wants a small fee - up front!
