Grand Pacific Trade Call Center Scam

( Also known as InfinityCapitalG, CCG.Global, TopMarketCap, StockCM and others)

Grand Pacific Trade was a brokerage firm that began operating as a CFD Forex broker in 2022, but it was neither licensed nor regulated. They also used other fake websites and platform: InfinityCapitalG, CCG.Global, TopMarketCap and StockCM. They targeted investors in Australia, Canada, European Union and other regions and countries, offering a wide range of trading instruments such as forex, stocks, commodities and cryptocurrencies without the necessary licenses for conducting this business. As of October 2023, the Grand Pacific Trade website was no longer accessible, which left investors with significant losses. It became evident that no actual trading had taken place and that the entire system was designed as an investor scam.

The well-organized call centers of GrandPacificTrade and others in Belgrade used fake virtual phone numbers and skillfully trained so-called brokers. The semblance of legality for this operation was provided by two registered companies in Belgrade, “Olympus Prime llc” and “Asgard llc”. In early 2023, the arrest of fake brokers in Belgrade followed as part of a large police operation code name “Infinity”, led by Europol and the Australian Federal Police. Over 50 individuals were detained. Significant financial assets, real estate, and other valuables that can be used to compensate the victims were seized in this police operation. The criminal proceedings are being conducted before the High Court in Belgrade.

Lyra and 3Key

DefnedMe lawyers in cooperation with prominent journalists from the United Kingdom did background checks and business model analysis of 3Key https://uniregistry.com/market/domain/3kay.com

This was especially relevant as 3Key was supposed to sign a deal with Manchester City football club and were prevented by our law firm. This sponsorship deal with one of the best known and household names in football was supposed to legitimize 3Key operations and entice new investors to join. After communicating with our office and having been provided the information Manchester City did not have access to, they decided to reject the deal offered by 3Key. 

Lyra project  (https://app.lyralab.io/connect/) notified their investors on 19 November 2022 that they were experiencing cash flow problems. After the announcement was published, the investors could no longer access their accounts on the Lyra platform. Some evidence indicates that this could be a possible exit strategy to cover up fraudulent activities orchestrated by the same individuals involved in both cases (Lyra and 3Key).

Unions Market, Een Markets, Emextrade and others

This fraud is carried out by an international organized criminal group through several companies: Unionsmarket.group, Emextrade.io, Triton Capital Market, Betertreding.co, EEN Markets, Goldmar.co, Globalfreeman, and others. They present themselves as forex brokers and employ manipulative tactics to lure their victims.

Their modus operandi involves enticing victims to invest money on their fake websites, offering supposed stock market trading. This is the first phase, representing a classic scam! Once victims deposit an initial sum, they are taken in by “retention agents,” more experienced fraudsters, who attempt to extract even more money from them. When the agent assesses that the victim is depleted, they cut off their access to the account and seize all funds.

This group operates under various names and consists of more than 30 members, including individuals with initials like M.K., N.M., A.K., E.R., D.M., D.L., S.V., and others. In their criminal activity during the second phase, they involve a “rescue” component, where individuals or companies present themselves as saviors, offering victims a chance to recover lost money for a fee.

In the third phase, this criminal group employs threats and extortion. Victims are coerced into paying a non-existent tax in the United Kingdom on transactions purportedly conducted during the first phase of deception. They send menacing letters and fabricated tax invoices purportedly from UK customs and tax authorities in order to extort additional funds. A criminal complaint has been filed against this group.

Ovu prevaru izvodi međunarodna organizovana kriminalna grupa preko nekoliko kompanija Unionsmarket.group, Emextrade.io, Triton Capital Market, Betertreding.co, EEN Markets, Goldmar.co, Globalfreeman i dr. Oni se predstavljaju kao forex brokeri i koriste manipulativne taktike kako bi privukli svoje žrtve.

Njihov modus operandi je privlačenje žrtvi da ulažu novac na njihove lažne sajtove nudeći navodnu trgovinu na berzi. To je prva faza koja predstavlja klasičnu prevaru! Kada žrtve uplate početni depozit, prihvataju ih “agenti za zadržavanje”, iskusniji prevaranti, koji pokušavaju izvući još više novca od žrtve. Kada agent proceni da je žrtva iscrpljena, onemogućuju joj pristup nalogu i oduzimaju sva sredstva.

Ova grupa deluje pod različitim imenima i broji više od 30-ak članova, koji se predstavljaju imenima: M.K., N.M., A.K., E.R., D.M., D.L., S.V i drugi. Njihova kriminalna delatnost u drugoj fazi, uključuje “spasilački” deo u kojem se pojedinci ili firme predstavljaju kao spasioci, nudeći žrtvama povrat izgubljenog novca uz naplatu troškova.

U trećoj fazi, ova kriminalna grupa prelazi na pretnje i ucene. Žrtvama se zahteva plaćanje nepostojećeg poreza u Velikoj Britaniji na transakcije koje su izvršene tokom prve faze prevare. Oni šalju preteća pisma i lažna rešenja od strane UK carinskih i poreskih organa kako bi iznudili dodatni novac. Protiv ove grupa podneta je krivčna prijava.

NSSPV PREVARA

ulaganje u solarne panele

Ova prevara se sprovodi od strane organizovane kriminalne grupe putem firme NSSPV ENERGI (EUROPE) LDT. Prema navodima, sedište kompanije nalazi se u Koloradu, SAD, sa regionalnim kancelarijama u različitim zemljama. Putem zvaničnog veb sajta, kompanija poziva ljude da se pridruže nacionalnom projektu u proizvodnje struje preko solarnih panela.

Prva faza prevare:
Metod delovanja uključuje privlačenje žrtava putem veb sajta: https://newsunshinepv.com/ i promovisanje na društvenim mrežama. Žrtvama se sugerira da investiraju novac u solarne panele, uz obećanje brzog povrata investicije. Navodno, profit proizilazi iz proizvodnje električne energije putem solarnih panela. Nakon što investitori izvrše uplatu, podstiču se da pozovu svoje porodice i prijatelje da im se pridruže u investiranju, uz obećanje dodatnih prihoda za svakog novog člana. Kada se postigne određeni depozit, žrtvama se nudi potpisivanje sporazuma o saradnji. Nažalost, ispostavlja se da nije bilo nikakvih stvarnih investicija, a početne isplate navodnog profita služile su samo u prevarne svrhe.

Druga faza prevare:
Žrtvama se onemogućava pristup njihovim računima i povlačenje zarađenog novca. Umesto toga, nude im se opcije povraćaja izgubljenih sredstava uz zahtev za dodatnim finansijskim ulaganjima ili im se nudi nova poslovna prilika uz obećanje sigurnog povrata uloženog novca.

NSSPV FRAUD
investments in solar panels

This deception is orchestrated by an organized criminal group through the company NSSPV ENERGI (EUROPE) LDT. According to reports, the company is headquartered in Colorado, USA, with regional offices in various countries. Through its official website, the company invites people to join a national project in the production of electricity through solar panels.

First phase of the scam:
The modus operandi involves luring victims through the website: https://newsunshinepv.com/ and promoting on social media. Victims are encouraged to invest money in solar panels, with promises of a quick return on investment. Allegedly, the profit comes from the production of electric energy through solar panels. After investors make their payments, they are urged to invite their family and friends to join the investment, with promises of additional income for each new member. When a certain deposit is reached, victims are offered the opportunity to sign cooperation agreements. Unfortunately, it turns out that there were no actual investments, and the initial payments of supposed profits served only fraudulent purposes.

Second phase of the scam:
Victims are denied access to their accounts and the withdrawal of their earned money. Instead, they are offered options for the refund of lost funds with demands for additional financial contributions or presented with a new business opportunity promising a secure return of invested funds.

Onewiex

Global Investment Scam

The Toronto-based company Onewiex (www.onewiex.com), owned by Mr. Oliver Wilson, operated under his direction as the executive director. It employed an aggressive marketing strategy to attract potential investors, with Mr. Edvard Koch playing a key role as the company's main representative in Slovenia.

Within a few months, from March to August 2023, the number of investors dramatically increased from 60,000 to 450,000, thanks to promises of high returns and long-term contracts. After the deposits matured, the company promised to return the principal amount in USDT (Tether) and guaranteed the safety of investments.
Furthermore, they claimed that all funds were insured and offered special insurance policies to investors who invested more than 50,000 USD (USDT), promising to refund the invested capital in case of loss. They asserted compliance with Canadian laws.

The disappearance of the www.onewiex.com website was sudden, revealing that the identities and photos of the company owners and promotional staff were false. Communication with them became impossible, and activity in Telegram groups came to a halt. Strong suspicions point to the company owners and organizers committing fraud. If you’ve fallen victim to this scam, please report your case. We’ll assist you throughout the legal proceedings to reclaim your investments and ensure that the responsible parties are duly punished under the law.
