You might think that you are safe investing online as long as you keep watch on the legality of the company you would want to invest in but the truth is, the Internet has made it a way lot easier for these cons to victimize investors. They use the power of the Internet to cover up there scheme and make their business look legal.
How do we know that these businesses are legal or scam? We could not pinpoint each and every one of them because they are growing in numbers each and every day. What are the signs of a questionable offer? Here are a few:
*When some stranger offers you an extravagant income. Why would someone you do not know choose you, and especially you, to make rich? Is it really believable?
*When you are promised an error-free or else you will be refunded trading system. Does that kind of system really exist? If it does, is it possible that the creator would want to offer it just like that?
*When you are offered an extremely complex deal that is hard to comprehend and involves riches from far away places. Do not involve yourself in something like this. This is designed in a way that you really would not be able to understand it.
Con in Trend
Right now, there is this prevalent kind of con known as “pump and dump”.
It goes this way.
Lawbreakers would purchase stocks from a not-so-well-known company. Then they would use the Internet to materialize their scheme. They would fill the web with lies regarding how the company has grown big and earned a lot. They would even have advertisements regarding the business.
In few situations, the company too becomes a victim because it does not know that they have been used by crooks for their attempt to fool investors. In other situations however, people from the company are the ones who do the cheat.
If these lawbreakers become successful in bringing in investors, they would then sell up the block of stocks they purchased for a huge amount of money. And when this happens, the price would go careening over the cliff. The investors are now conned into nothing.
Another type of scheme is somehow the opposite of the first one. The crooks would spread lies over the Internet on how a company is doing bad or going broke or is facing some serious lawsuits. And so this would trigger the stocks to drop. This is when they buy the stocks for a huge profit.
Crooks would do the best they could to get money and they do this well by using your emotions against your reason. They promise high profit. People are then tempted to lunge into investing into this because of their greed or strong affinity and will to make huge money. End result? Crooks would hover over the poor investors, luring them to invest more and more of their money in the hope of getting high returns, but would end up losing all of them. Be critical in your judgment. Don’t be fooled.
