Warning on investing in cryptocurrencies

15 Jul 2021 15:00|Conotoxia.com

We would like you to be cautious of scammers making offers for cryptocurrency investments. Recently, there has been a significant increase in the activity of fraudsters posing as "investment brokers".

They lure people with easy and quick profits. While offering to help you trade, they often ask you to share your confidential information, such as login and password to the transaction service, payment card details or information on authorization codes. Simultaneously, they may tell you to install additional software on your computers, such as AnyDesk or TeamViewer.

A fake "broker" may also ask you to register on a cryptocurrency exchange and transfer money there, or they may offer to act as an intermediary/assistant to complete the transfer. The cryptocurrency exchange market may be legitimate, but the funds may be sent to another virtual wallet that you will not have access to.

Take caution! Be sceptical of promises of quick profits, don't disclose confidential data, don't trust people who want to execute transactions on your behalf.

Review your business partners! Before you start investing, check whether the entity offering its services is registered in the EU. Check on the Polish Financial Supervision Authority website or the websites of other authorities whether there are any warnings regarding its activity - the KNF Warnings List.

Have you become a victim of fraud or any attempt to defraud?

Contact us as soon as possible and report the crime to the police.
