Asia Scam: Always the same scheme of investment scams
For years you can read on the Internet about the investment scammers from Asia. They always follow the same pattern, so you can ultimately identify them by the nature of their business model. Share deals are offered - mostly with Chinese start ups. The websites are perfectly made and also the native English speaking brokers are absolute world class not only professionally but also psychologically. So it is not only an investment scam in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, but the investment scammers have the whole world in their sights with their scams.
Asia Scam: The investment scammers are identified
After years of work and investigation, their names and locations have now been largely identified. A special feature of this gang of investment scammers is the perfect presentation of their scam, i.e. their fraud model. This includes a good design as well as the supposed locations Taiwan, Singapore, Japan and South Korea. So far, the investment scammers from Asia use the following fantasy companies with very euphonious names and under false addresses in Taiwan, Singapore, Japan and South Korea:

Asia Scam: Accounts set up through questionable service providers
Also noteworthy are the beneficiary accounts at banks in Hong Kong - such as HSBC and Bank of China, and later at banks in Kuala Lumpur, in Malaysia, as at Standard Chartered Bank. The bank accounts were regularly set up by rather questionable service providers. The question is how it escaped the attention of the compliance departments of such renowned banks that behind these account holders registered by the service provider were often pure air numbers. Unsuspecting investors transferred their money to these conspicuous accounts. Millions of euros flowed through these accounts within a short period of time until the new account was opened. The game was repeated over and over again for many years, always following the same pattern.
Asia Scam: Complex logistics have been set up
The business of investment scammers in Asia has been going on for many years, and was initially identified as an investment scam from Taiwan. Also of note is a video from 2016 posted online by an Australian victim of the Asia Scammers. Admittedly, the brave investor who tracked the perpetrators to their home in northern Thailand had no idea that this was an extremely complex and multi-layered investment scam that required a significant logistical effort. It is not just one scammer that the Australian was tracking, but a large network whose traces can be found almost on every continent.
