The Growing Scam Market
As technology has advanced so too have the scams.
Today the scams are sold by smooth-talking salespeople calling you out of the blue or sending promotions into your inbox. They provide glossy brochures promising guaranteed returns, security for your capital, guaranteed exits or guaranteed buy-backs in the future. The sales pitch is so good it can be very difficult to separate genuine projects from the scams. Often by the time you realise it’s a scam it’s too late. The website and the salespeople have disappeared.
Investment scams can look very professional and they often involve what appears to be rock-solid, tried and tested mainstream assets like land, property, commodities and fixed-term bonds.
They can even involve funds held in escrow with what appears to be legitimate, blue-chip companies. The truth is that these are often just a smoke-screen. The project is a total scam and people lose all their money. The cases we deal with often involve huge sums of money and that makes our investigators a target. We’ve dealt with cases involving disqualified directors, money launderers, serial con-men and even a convicted murderer.
SafeOrScam is here to help you sort the safe from the scam and we are very good at what we do. We help you to avoid the scams before you invest, understand exactly what went wrong after you invest, and help formulate a recovery plan to determine what can be recovered and what needs to be done after the perpetrators have disappeared.
