[Forex Broker Exposure] GPAK Has Been Investigated by the Police

As the financial market with the most frequent transactions, the Forex market is favored by global investors due to its high efficiency, liquidity and flexibility. However, many illegal brokers also lurk around on this lucrative market, attracting investors with appealing yet misleading advertisement such as “starting trading with only US$5” and “speedy deposit and withdrawal”, or promising investors so-called “bonus” for successfully inviting others to open account at the platform. But behind the attractive “high profits” claimed by brokers, there are often great risks or even traps.

As one of the victims suffering such broker scams, Mr. Wang reported GPAK to WikiFX and shared his experience of being defrauded to warn other investors against the illegal Forex broker.

Complainant: Mr. Wang
Forex broker: GPAK
Broker website: http://www.gpakcn.com/
Time of opening account: February, 2019
Time of withdrawal: June 20th, 2019
Withdrawal status: in process
Customer service: no response
Website status: inaccessible

Event Recap
I opened an account on GPAK in February, 2019 under the recommendation of a friend and made 2 deposits through Alipay. From February to June, I managed to make some profits which added up with the initial deposit to US$3,503.62.
I once contacted the customer service in April to withdraw, but was advised to wait, as he claimed my request won't be processed during the May Day holiday. On June 20th, I was informed that my application had been approved. But strangely enough, my trading account showed the application remained in process and I still didnt receive the money a week later. When I tried to log in my GPAK account, I found the website was no longer accessible and the customer service didn't reply any more.

Case Study
First persuade investors to deposit through “acquaintance's recommendation” , and then postpone their withdrawal applications to prepare for escaping, which is an old trick of illegal brokers.
In Mr. Wang's case, GPAK first got Mr. Wang to deposit through the marketing strategy of “acquaintance's recommendation” and further lured him into making more investments with attractive profits. When Mr. Wang tried to withdraw, the customer service began to pull up all kinds of excuses such as withdrawal can't be processed during the holiday in order to postpone withdrawal and perhaps win themselves more time for running away.

Case Summary
As more Forex scams have been exposed, the illegal brokers also become more sophisticated in their tricks. We conclude the following tips based on Mr. Wang's case:
  1. Investors should always check a broker's qualification and stay prudent about the recommendations of others, even from your friends.
  2. Think twice when you seem to be profiting and want to double down your deposit, as no investment comes without risks.
  3. Asset safety should always be your priority. Only deposits made through UnionPay or in escrow are under the regulation of the People's Bank of China, and there's still a chance of getting the money back even if you' re defrauded. However, if the deposit is made through Alipay, WeChat Pay or personal transfer, investors risk suffering great loss.

Conclusion
According to the information on WikiFX App, the licenses from FCA(UK) and NFA(US) which GPAK claims to hold are suspected to be cloned, while its AR license from FCA(UK) has been revoked. Currently without valid regulatory status, the broker is rated at only 1.93 on the WikiFX App and bears significant risks, please stay away from it.

Housemate potentially involved in a Forex MLM/Ponzi scheme

I’m curious if anyone here has heard of or is familiar with the company KOT4X? I have a housemate who claims to have made over $10 million from this website in a few months which I find utterly ridiculous. This all began with him trying to get the rest of us signed up for his “company” which I overheard him tell someone else is KOT4X. I did some digging on them but all I’ve been able to uncover is that the “company” is sketchy as hell. It’s registered offshore (St Vincent and the Grenadines) and makes some pretty serious promises regarding how much money can be made. The catch, of course, is that it costs ≈$250 to create an account (and I would imagine there are further monthly fees associated with this). He has mentioned that there are several hundred videos that teach how to make significant money off of Forex trading, which leads me to suspect this specific website is some iteration of IMAcademy.
Needless to say, I didn’t take the bait or really remark on it but now I’m thinking I should have. This housemate has not yet paid his share of the rent for the month; he keeps saying that he has and it’s “processing” and that his low standard of living given his supposed wealth is due to the fact he is “humble.” Coupled with this, I am fairly certain this housemate stole about $120 from my wallet along with my AirPods from my room, which I would imagine he sold for cash. He of course denies this and it’s frankly impossible to prove without either catching him in the act or seeing him use the AirPods, which hasn’t happened yet.
If he doesn’t pay his rent within the next few days, I have all intentions of doing everything in my power to get him kicked off the lease and evicted from the house because I frankly don’t feel comfortable living here. I’m in the process of finding someone else to take my spot on the lease, but it’s not promising at the moment.
Really, I’m just looking for any help or advice anyone can give regarding this supposed “company” and what I can do to stave off what I imagine will be further acts of desperation to come. I’m happy to answer any questions anyone has about it to the best of my ability, but I really don’t know much more than what he has told us. Is it possible to report him specifically to the SEC or another agency for investigation? Ordinarily I’d be inclined to try and talk him out of it, but given the theft I’d just like to see him gone and never see him again.

Need advice if I should continue investing in a forex group

Good day!
Would like to seek advice. I have invested in a certain group of forex traders which gives you a certain percentage of your investment every month. In the end of contract you should have received all the promised returns + the original capital, more or less doubling your money.
My experience so far has been positive and didn't experienced any delays and fully received all agreed returns + initial investment.
I would love to invest again because it is passive income. My only concern is it has been flagged by the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) as illegal and any person involved might be at risked to be investigated by BIR or worse, imprisonment.
The forex group's explanation is that 1) their name was used by a third party and they were wrongfully accused and 2) PH does not recognize forex trading yet and they are legit in the other country they are operating in.

I trust a lot of people involved with them that is why I was not hesitant in investing the first time. Just want to hear some thoughts from a separate entity. Especially how the PH government recognizes forex trading in general. And help me clear my doubts in investing again.

Thank you!

Ways to Get Your Stolen Bitcoin or Lost Crypto Back

This piece of article shows the reader about the latest techniques on how to get possibly stolen crypto money back – find out what’s been happening in the business of virtual cash transactions. You can also read on how to recover stolen bitcoin cryptocurrency and money lost to binary options forex investment scam.
Most people that use the Internet can attest to the fact that they have heard of crypto-currencies or crypto wallets. Most will not understand exactly how it works but a size-able amount of people have begun to adopt these new trends – it would be that they know it from online purchases or even from online betting like at Navolin-Gratise games or numerous gambling platforms on the World Wide Web.
A complete knowledge about a system is not a prerequisite to joining the crypto-exchange craze. Most of the transactions involved in the world of crypto-currencies is made easy for any user who knows how to navigate a cell phone app. This ease in transacting unfortunately also causes complacency amongst many users, who more often than not, forget that the Internet is a wilderness and their devices are a portal into that wilderness.
Recovering Stolen Bitcoin; How Cryptocurrency gets Lost
When buying a crypto currency or receiving funds through crypto mining, you receive a private key and a public key. To state it simply, a private key allows you and only you to be able to access your account. No bank or service provider will know or have the ability to know the key. It is therefore absolutely imperative that the holder of the key be responsible for the security of that key.
Unfortunately it does happen that people’s private keys get stolen, in which case the thief is then able to send money out of the victim’s wallet. Due to the fact that crypto currencies transcend geographical borders, little or no regulation exists to monitor crime related to the crypto market. So many people who have been victims of crypto theft have been left with very little avenue to report their cases.
According to P. Koskuwski, the CEO of blockchain, an investigative firm Koinfirma is quoted as stating that stolen crypto to date amounts to roughly $10 billion. According to their website, Koinfirma has entered into a partnership with Kroll, an intelligence-, investigations- and advisory services firm that is known for its presence in the global security industry.
Best Way to Recover Lost or Stolen Bitcoin Cryptocurrency
FundsRecovery247.com, which is a well known and one of the best asset recovery firm, has extensive experience in the cyber risk space and is trusted by well established companies and governments around the world. Combining that strength will the Koinfirma’s regulatory technology, we now have a new hope in recovering our stolen crypto.
Because cryptos are generally made so that transactions can be traced, Koinfirma’s initiative with FundsRecovery247, which has been dubbed ‘CryptoRecovery’, seeks to trace the movement of stolen funds and track them as they are moved. Hopefully if the thief is identified and located, measures are taken to recover the lost or stolen bitcoin cryptocurrency.
The process of recovery of the funds begins with you sending your email address and the amount to be claimed. Once your case has been approved, you are then quoted and all you now need to do is wait. It’s a comforting fact that Reclaim Crypto gets a piece of the reclaimed funds because it suggests that you will not be the only person hoping for the return of your crypto.
Recovering your lost or stolen bitcoin cryptocurrency is very simple, just contact Funds Recovery 247 – [email protected].

How did Epstein make his money? From math teacher to pedo island.

I know there are many articles and theories from Wexner to Ponzi, managing billionaire money, Forex, blackmail, offshore laundering, ties to intelligence, etc. but it boggles my mind that no one knows for certain?? I know you can scam for seed money to fund your firm, but schemes and scams get cracked eventually, yet this guy’s fortunes kept AND keeps going and going. We’re talking about BIG money too - jets, islands, boats, cars, mansions - overt luxuries, costly to maintain, flaunted openly for a long period of time without question or investigation? It takes a LARGE network and staff to maintain this lifestyle and nobody knows?

Binary Options Recovery: Scammed Traders, Fake Brokers, and Funds Recovery

Binary Options Recovery: Scammed Traders, Fake Brokers, and Funds Recovery
Following the “permanent temporary” measures against binary options and CFDs (contract for difference), the body in charge implements its own set of limitations that simply forbids regulated houses to offer such product in the UK, hence increasing the risk of pushing retails traders towards illegal brokers and outright scams. Fortunately, a new solution is now available to UK traders via a new United Kingdom Financial regulatory ruling.
More scrutiny from UK banks about financial transactions, even to binary optionsIn short, banks will have to take more responsibility about the financial transactions they facilitate. This new ruling should lead to the creation of a new code of conduct that will help defrauded people to have their funds recovered by their bank, unless it is proven they acted recklessly.
As a popular Financial blog puts, it, “It is likely that should a bank or credit card company be either impersonated by a fraudster in order to gain money, or trick a client into depositing, and the bank allows the transfer, a client will be able to take recourse.
The broad protection should kick for many online scheme and scams, whether it is fake investment companies, fraudulent binary options brokers or those scammers who promise to help you recover your stolen funds…only to steal from you once again. On the other hands, it means the banks will be more likely to forbid transactions to legit businesses, such as reputable cryptocurrency exchanges or honest smart options platforms.
The regulating bodies and financial institutions are taking a number of measures to prevent financial fraud. Binary options trading, in particular, is being controlled with a greater degree of robustness to protect the unwary general public being drawn into a situation where they suffer financial losses. Many hundreds of people around the world are targeted each day.
![img](prwn4ha2ecf51 " ")
Frequently they are novice investors who are unfamiliar with the markets and do not recognize that the so-called trading platform and its way of working are actually bogus. The individual only realizes the extent of the fraud when eventually when the fraudsters finally decide that there is no more money to be had and shut down the account and promptly vanish without trace.
Spotting Fraudulent Binary Options Broker
Some lawyers in the financial fraud division are very familiar with the pattern of behaviour demonstrated by the fraudulent brokers and the distress caused by their dealings with inexperienced investors. There is a track of record of recovery in relation to financial fraud and has a number of strategies and tactics to compel the fraudulent broker or associated financial service providers to restore funds to those who have been deceived.
Needless to say, the fraudsters are accomplished at hiding their tracks and frequently there are myriad inter-connected limited liability companies, often some are registered in different countries, with some dormant and some active. It is hardly surprising if the complexity of the situation results in a failure to discover a single person who can be challenged and held accountable.
However, there are various channels financial fraud lawyers use when attempting to retrieve money for clients and each avenue is investigated. Whilst an individual may be alarmed and confused at the prospect of navigating through the complex structures that have been deliberately set up to confuse, Financial fraud lawyers are usually quite familiar with strategies fraudsters use, and frequently can steer a course to the recovery of some or all of the lost money.

The step of last resort, legal action, is understandably daunting for a person who often has lost significant amounts of money to the fraudulent brokers. It is fully understandable that such a situation will leave the victim decidedly risk-averse. There have been experiences with class actions against the fraudulent brokers and has developed links with litigation funding organizations in order to offset the risk in respect of class actions.
The lessons that can be drawn from the experiences of those individuals who have had the misfortune of losing their investments to fraudsters are to be extremely cautious. Always consider every offer or investment for at least 48 hours before making a decision, a genuine broker will understand the caution that a new investor will view a proposition.
All investments carry a risk and anything that promises a return on your initial investment seems to be significantly higher than normal it is almost certainly not to be trusted. Do not allow yourself to be hurried into a decision, it is highly unlikely that an authentic broker would try to rush you into an investment, especially if you demonstrated reluctance; their reputation would suffer by such behaviour.
You can now recover all money lost to bitcoin, binary options, cryptocurrency, investment, scam by hiring any one of these Verified Wealth Recovery Experts.

Recover Stolen Crypto - How to Recover Scammed Bitcoin

“Let me start by sharing my first loss was with bitcoin and cryptocurrency in general. It happened when the exchange closed with our funds. I didn’t even try to contact anyone or alert any authority.” The good news however is that people who have lost bitcoin, other crypto and any other kind of assets can now recover all they have lost bitcoin and crypto.
All you have to do is send an email to [email protected] to recover all lost or stolen bitcoin and crypto. These are the words of an intrepid crypto investor – one of many who responded to a tweet asking about the lack of recourse people face when their assets are stolen in a hack, exit scam or Ponzi scheme.
There’s as much as $10 billion in stolen crypto out there in the market, according to Pawel Kuskowski, CEO of blockchain sleuthing firm Coinfirm. And he wants to give victims a fighting chance at getting their funds back.
Exclusively revealed to Reddit, Coinfirm has teamed up with global investigations firm Kroll, a division of consulting firm Doff & Phelp. The joint initiative being launched is called ReclaimCrypto, and combines the latest blockchain forensic techniques with the more established world of legal investigation and asset recovery.
Kuskowski told Reddit:
“So far, there is no one place where victims can go and get help. It’s almost like they are pleading to get someone interested in their case. In the end, they have to work it out themselves; see about getting a lawyer, perhaps in some other jurisdiction.”
Figures on what is recoverable vary. For instance, CipherTrace, another analytics firm recently said some $4 billion in crypto has been lost this year. Kuskowski’s estimate includes historic (and as yet unresolved) events like Mt Gox, which in today’s money would account for about $1 billion.
Needless to say, Kuskowski and his team are not doing this only for the good of mankind – there are success fees levied on a case-by-case basis, he told CoinDesk, adding:
“Doing the market analysis for this product, we started by calculating the kind of top cases, where we know we could be successful and recover funds, which was about 200 cases.”
Those cases alone account for roughly $1.5 billion, Kuskowski added.
FundsRecovery247.com will Help Recover Your Lost or Stolen Crypto
Coinfirm’s bread and butter is anti-money laundering (AML) within crypto networks, done by analyzing the history of transactions using various smarts and big-data analytics. Similar to the likes of Chainalysis and Elliptic, it works with 50 or so exchanges and has built up a large database in this area.
Coinfirm’s partner, Kroll, takes a more “traditional” approach, which might involve producing court orders to get an internet service provider to reveal details about an IP address, or using former FBI and CIA operatives to scour the dark web for activity involving stolen funds.
It should be pointed out that Kroll is not new to crypto: The firm worked with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) last year in relation to fraudulent coin offerings. Kroll also tells CoinDesk it helped track down the perpetrators in Europe of $27.8 million bitcoin theft.
If loss victims so choose, Kroll can potentially line up third-party litigation funding. This means firms that provide specialized finance to the legal market, such as Burford Capital or Therium, will shoulder the cost of people’s litigation. For this, they take about 30 percent of the recovered funds and return the rest to the victims.
Benedict Hamilton, a managing director at Kroll, told CoinDesk:
“From a victim’s point of view, where the police have failed to recover that money, they are not having to spend anything to get something. And no one recovers funds on their behalf without their permission. It makes the whole economics of recovering stolen funds very different – which is very exciting.”
Referring to Coinfirm as “a torch shining on the blockchain,” Hamilton said this can be extended by Kroll into the murky depths of the dark web. Kroll Cyber runs a specialist darkweb unit out of Pittsburgh, Pa., which is overseen by Keith Wojcieszek, the former head of the criminal investigations unit of the U.S. Secret Service’s cyber division.
This operation crunches petabytes of dark web data from peer-to-peer sites, said Hamilton, adding:
“With the ReclaimCrypto initiative in mind we have have been able to repurpose it so we can go into that database with a wallet string and look for any identifiers that are associated with that wallet name – perhaps a conversation over the selling of stolen credit cards or someone offering criminal services and providing that wallet as an address.”
Follow the moneyHamilton explained that there are two paths that can be followed when it comes to a crypto investigation: figure out who did it or follow the money.
ReclaimCrypto’s objective here is asset recovery, first and foremost, since that’s what the client is paying for. But ultimately both paths lead to the same place, said Hamilton, adding:
“It is inconceivable that the investigative process would finish without us giving all the details to relevant law enforcement for them then to get the benefit of the work and lock the thieves up.”
The majority of ReclaimCrypto’s focus will be on bitcoin and ether, but will also cover XRP, BCH, LTC, NEO and DASH.
As for those who’ve had coins pilfered, some remain philosophical about it. “That’s life,” said the aforementioned investor, adding:
“It made me grow a lot and it’s part of my adventure in crypto.”
5 Ways to Recover Your Stolen or Lost Crypto
Cryptocurrency is generally considered to be secure, but sometimes things do happen. Even top traders have had cryptoassets lost or stolen and, until quite recently, it seemed like there was very little one could actually do about it. Thankfully, there are ways to get your cryptocurrency back. We’ll be looking at the best ways to recover your lost or stolen crypto, and how to avoid going through something so traumatic in the first place!
Act as quickly as possible
Benjamin Sauter, a partner at Kobre & Kim, a law and an expert in crypto theft cases, told Decrypt, “The quicker you can act, the better,”. The longer you wait to start tracing your crypto, the more time you give thieves to transfer your assets to cold storage, send them to sketchy exchanges, or to tumblers to mix them up. “The more sophisticated you are, and the less sophisticated the thieves are at laundering the assets, the better chance you have,” Sauter continued.
Legality
For the legal system to actually work in your favour, you’ll likely need to know who stole your cryptocurrency. While you may be able to freeze funds against a John Doe, it’ll be challenging. According to Marc Jones, a partner at Stewarts Law in the UK, “In general, to enforce an order requiring fraudsters to pay damages or handover stolen property, ultimately you’ll need to know who they are.”
Thankfully, one of the many benefits of cryptocurrency is that you can see where the coins have gone. If they go through an exchange, you’ll most likely be able to find out who the wallet holder is thanks to the KYC process. From there, you can get a court order to reveal the thief’s identity and recover your stolen crypto.
Recovering lost crypto from a cold wallet
Cold wallets are offline wallets that are designed for storing cryptocurrencies. With cold storage, the digital wallet is stored on a platform without internet connectivity. This protects the wallet from cyber hacks, unauthorized access, and other vulnerabilities that could be exploited if they were connected to the internet.
There are a number of different ways that you can recover from cold wallets:

You’ll only be charged a success fee on the crypto they recover for you, not for the initial assessment! Have you lost bitcoin, crypto or any other digital asset and need to get it back?
