Fraudulent Digital Asset and “Crypto” Trading Websites

Before making any investment, carefully read any materials you are given and verify the truth of every statement

 

The U.S. Securities and exchange Commission has recently observed investment scams where fraudsters tout digital asset or “cryptocurrency” advisory and trading businesses. In some cases, the fraudsters claim to invest customers’ funds in proprietary crypto trading systems or in “mining” farms.  The fraudsters promise high guaranteed returns (for example, 20-50%) with little or no risk.

Investors should be on the lookout for any of these warning signs of investment fraud:

  • “Guaranteed” high investment returns
  • Complicated jargon and language that is difficult to understand
  • Unlicensed sellers
  • Sounds too good to be true
  • Unsolicited offers
  • Pressure to buy RIGHT NOW
