MOSCOW, December 6 - RIA Novosti. Fraudsters in Russia hide behind the names of well-known brands in the market in order to lure money from novice investors, Gennady Salych, chairman of the board of Freedom Finance, told RIA Novosti.

"Since the beginning of the year, more than 3.5 million compatriots have opened accounts on the Moscow Stock Exchange. And there is complete confidence that this trend will continue next year. The brokerage business is growing and, along with the popularity of the population, is receiving increased attention from fraudsters who hide behind the names of well-known brands on the market. to defraud money, "Salych pointed out.

In total, he identified several schemes used by fraudsters. For example, they create decoy websites and often post stolen scans of licenses of large brokers on them. On social networks, they create copies of the pages of investment companies with supposedly permits, logos, photographs of employees, news and product descriptions.

Also, scammers lure clients to free "investor courses", where they offer to start working in the stock market. "It turns out something like a pyramid, where at first they can even pay some interest to lull the vigilance," Salych explained.

Another trick is to encourage people to participate in win-win lotteries and contests, then the prize is offered to be invested on favorable terms. The client trusts the swindler, continues to invest further and lose money.

And finally, the scammers introduce themselves as personal advisers of well-known companies in investment matters and offer their assistance in organizing profitable investments, Salych concluded.
