Dear Clients,

Granpacifictrade Case Summary:

Grandpacifictrade is a scam, a fake stock trading platform. It is an organized fraud carried out through a call center. The companies Olympus Prime and Asgard, based in Belgrade, gave it the appearance of legitimacy. The suspects have been arrested, and criminal proceedings are underway in Belgrade.

In this case, we represent the victims who responded to an online advertisement promoting the cryptocurrency trading platform Grand Pacific Trade. The platform’s website was, but access to it is no longer possible.

As the website seemed reliable to the victim, they decided to make an initial deposit using a credit card. After that, the victim created an account on the mentioned platform. Shortly after the deposit, the victim was contacted by an individual claiming to be a senior manager at Grand Pacific Trade.

This information might be useful to our clients.
