A type of cybercrime fraud or deception which makes use of the Internet and could involve hiding of information or providing incorrect information for the purpose of tricking victims out of money, property, and inheritance. Internet fraud is not considered a single, distinctive crime but covers a range of illegal and illicit actions that are committed in cyberspace. It is, however, differentiated from theft since, in this case, the victim voluntarily and knowingly provides the details and in some circumstances, he is knowingly sending money to the fraudulent entity.
Victims are usually targeted through a cold call and offered the opportunity to invest in shares or other commodities with the promise of high returns which are then not forthcoming. The opportunities which the victims invest in are usually heavily overpriced or worthless and in the most serious cases, they do not even exist. Those who produce sales literature on behalf of such companies can also find themselves under the spotlight.
3 STAGE MODEL
Before evaluating a case, our potential plaintiffs must fill out a short survey on our website. The questionnaire contains various inquiries regarding the fraudulent activities that took place. Kindly answer all the questions in the survey with the utmost seriousness since it is a critical element of our procedure for deciding whether or not we can represent you. Once you have finished the survey, kindly forward us all the evidence you have kept relevant to the scam you underwent. The evidence mentioned above refers to the funds you transferred to the deceitful "trading" website (such as bank statements/ Credit Card receipts/Cryptocurrency transactions, or even documents issued by the "trading" website). If you still have access to the trading platform, you can take screenshots of your transaction history. This would be the most helpful method to ascertain your lost amount.
