Over 50% of Forex scams find their victims on social
media


As the lockdown triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic wreak
havoc on the economy and impacting household income, a
significant number of desperate people have fallen victim
to Forex fraud.To get more news about

  The Financial Service Conduct Authority (FSCA) has
issued several warnings about bad Forex brokers and
scammers purpoting to be Forex traders, however, with the
numerous digital platforms at their disposal it has
become increasingly difficult for the non-discerning eye
to tell which one is legit and which one isnt.


  Members of the public should always check that an
entity or individual is registered with the FSCA to
provide Financial Advisory & Intermediary Services and
what category of advice it is that the entity is
registered to provide.

  There are instances where persons are registered to
provide basic advisory services for a low risk product
and then offer services of a far more complex and risky
nature.

  “The FSCA again reminds consumers who wish to
conduct financial services with an institution or person
to check beforehand with the FSCA on either the toll free
number (0800 110 443) or on the website www.fsca.co.za as
to whether or not such institution or person is
authorised to render financial services,” says the FSCA.

  It is important to note that not all Forex traders
are scammers, some are just bad brokers. Their crime was
their poor handling of client funds which came at a huge
cost to desperate people trying to earn a legitimate
income.As is made clear from the chart above, 56.1
percent of people who reported being defrauded by a
scammer or broker were first contacted via social media.
Also made clear is that Fac*book and Instagram are by far
the most popular hunting grounds for scammers and bad
brokers.

  Again, this is not particularly surprising.
Fac*book‘s problems with content moderation are well-
documented and are the subject of intense scrutiny from
law-making bodies around the world. While most of this
scrutiny is focused on Fac*book’s political content, we
believe that lawmakers should also consider the financial
damage inflicted on its users.

  This data does highlight the level of trust that
people place in relative strangers they meet on social
media. Many of the complaints we receive detail the
painful process that these victims go through. A recent
complaint is a prime example of the method used by
Fac*book scammers:

  I came across the Fac*book posts of [REDACTED] who
appeared to be a legit Forex broker. I then contacted him
via Fac*book Messenger, and he informed me that I can
deposit any amount I have from my account to their
trading website [REDACTED].

  He promised me that I will receive 500 percent profit
after seven days of investing. On the day I was supposed
to withdraw my profit, I got an email from [REDACTED],
informing me that I have to make a deposit of $300 before
I can withdraw. I raised this with [REDACTED] and he told
me that he also didnt expect this.

  Because I was desperate to get my money back, I
deposited $288, with the hope that I will withdraw my
profit but was later informed that the company charges
commission and I would first have to deposit $450. As a
result, I contacted [REDACTED] to inform him of my
decision to demand a refund, since this trading company
does not appear to be legit. He has since been ignoring
my WhatsApp messages. I recently got an internship and I
have to pay the money I invested back to the person I
borrowed it from.

  Reading through these complaints is a heart-breaking
exercise, especially when so little can be done in
majority of cases. While the FSCA does do its best to
track down scammers, many of these people use fake names
and are often based overseas. The anonymity provided by
Fac*book – whether through its main platform or on
Instagram – offers the perfect cover for many fraudsters
and leaves victims with no recourse.
