Disappointingly, the dubious business practices rather make for disappointed investors and miserable experiences!
Revalmarkets: Hide-and-seek game with the domain entry!
Remarkable for the business practices of the Revalmarkets 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 Revalmarkets, there are no references to the operators to be found. However, one learns that the domain was registered with NameCheap, Inc. only on 05.08.2020. The real domain owners are hiding behind the Icelandic anonymization service Withheld for Privacy ehf.
Revalmarkets: Who is behind it?
Answering this question will be rather difficult for many investors, as the Revalmarkets makers do everything they can 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? There is scant information about this on the Revalmarkets website. The company Realise Value Capital Limited with the business address 35 Albert Embankment, London, SE1 7TLS, UNITED KINGDOM is given, but the makers of Revalmarkets cannot be found under this address, because these are the copied company details of an actually existing and regulated company in England. In addition, there is the obligatory support e-mail address, but no telephone number.
Revalmarkets: The customer acquisition of the investment scammers
Here you can find the same approach again and again: In order to attract new customers, the recommendations of Revalmarkets are presented in all conceivable media and channels. Not infrequently, these recommendations are false information. Furthermore, 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". At the same time, a mostly aggressive affiliate program is launched to give others incentive to beat the promotional drum for Revalmarkets.
Revalmarkets: 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 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?
Revalmarkets: repayment of money is subject to conditions
Once in, an exit is mostly impossible. Rather, the administrators of the investment scammers tie a 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 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!
Revalmarkets: Scheme of investment fraud?
There is no regulation of the Revalmarkets trading platform. Revalmarkets lacks regulation by a recognized 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.
