High-return trap! Fake 'Binomo' gang embezzled 99,000 naira of two victims
As we all know, most investors from Nigeria are familiar with the forex broker Binomo, because their advertisements are spread all over social media. And those so-called Binomo staff put out attractive advertisements to attract fresh investors without any investment risk awareness. Generally, fraudulent brokers will promise investors that they can gain double or even triple profits in a short term. This kind of fraud is the most common in Nigeria.To get more news about Binomo forex brokers, you can visit wikifx news official website.
This article will analyze in detail what kind of team is behind Binomo. How do they scam investor on Whatsapp, Facebook and Instagram？ Do they have a real office？ Do they have regulatory license？
As usual, here are two victims' complaints against Binomo.
An investor told WikiFX that he saw ‘Binomo’ ‘s ads from Facebook. A group is named Binomo World Trade with 112 followers. The investor sent message in this group to ask how the investment plan really works. One agent from this group who has mentioned the investment process, if investor invests a sum of money, Binomo will return triple amount of the principal to investor’s account within 30 to 45 minutes. The investor with no investment experience transferred 25,000NGN to this agent without thinking, he expected a return of 75,000NGN soon, but finally he was blocked by the agent at the end.
The investor believes in anything in this Facebook group because they use a celebrity avatar, an Nigerian actor, to advertise for group promotion. It is high-sounding to win the trust of investors just by using the avatars of well-known figures. On the other hand, does the star know that someone is using his avatar to cheat？ Or, most like, they not only defraud, but also infringe on other peoples portrait rights. The profile of group photo shows they are members of The Financial Commission. Actually, the organization does not admit that they have this member. Furthermore, the group introduces that they are an Australian company, but in fact they are just a fraud ring made up of several people in Nigeria.
An investor was scammed by a woman called mrs_Asish46 at Instagram. The woman said she works for Binomo and introduced binary options to him. The investor invested 5,000NGN at the beginning and was asked to invest more if he wanted to gain more. The investor invested 74,000NGN in total. Like what happened in the first case, the investors money was gone and he did not get any feedback from mrs_Asish46.
The women also mentioned Binomos office address, 24 Usuma Close, Off Usuma Street, Gana Street, Maitama, Abuja, Nigeria.
WikiFX also collected some information as below: The address regards a woman called Gift Olymp Investment from LinkedIn. It can be seen that messy messages are everywhere.
Conclusion: According to research, Binomo seems like a sugar-coated trap. The scam of Binomo involves not only individuals but also groups. They have neither an office nor a community to solve the customer services problems of their investors. The fake ‘Binomo’gangis currently active on large social network such as Telegram and Facebook, please stay away!
