Curated Earners: A Boiler Room Scam to Avoid
If you are looking for a reliable and trustworthy investment platform, you might want to steer clear of Curated Earners. This company has been flagged by the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM) as a suspected boiler room scam. In this blog post, we will explain what a boiler room scam is, how Curated Earners operates, and why you should avoid it at all costs.
Regulation and Compliance:
A boiler room scam is a type of fraud that involves cold-calling potential investors and pressuring them to buy shares that are either worthless or nonexistent. The scammers often use fake or stolen identities, fake websites, and fake documents to lure unsuspecting victims. They also promise high returns and low risks, but in reality, they are only interested in taking your money and disappearing.
Curated Earners is one such scam. According to the AFM, Curated Earners has approached people without being asked, to offer them investment proposals. The AFM has also established that Curated Earners do not have an AFM license or a European Passport. This means that Curated Earners is not authorized to provide investment services or products in the Netherlands or in any other European country. Therefore, if you deal with Curated Earners, you are not protected by any regulatory framework or compensation scheme.
As expected, Curated Earners has received many negative reviews from customers who have fallen victim to their scam. Here are some examples of what customers have said about Curated Earners:
– “They called me several times and convinced me to invest in some stocks that they claimed would skyrocket. They sounded very professional and friendly, but after I transferred the money, they stopped answering my calls and emails. I never received any confirmation or statement of my investment. I realized too late that I had been scammed.”
– “They are very persistent and aggressive. They keep calling me from different numbers and trying to persuade me to invest more money. They say that I have made a huge profit and that I need to pay some fees or taxes to withdraw it. But I know it’s a lie. They just want more money from me. I have reported them to the authorities, but I don’t think I will ever get my money back.”
– “They are very clever and manipulative. They use fake names and fake websites to make themselves look legitimate. They also send me fake news articles and fake reports to support their claims. They even hacked into my email account and sent me fake messages from my bank and my broker. They made me believe that they were working with reputable institutions and that I was making a good investment. But it was all a hoax.”
Products and Services:
Curated Earners claims to offer a variety of investment products and services, such as stocks, bonds, commodities, forex, cryptocurrencies, mutual funds, hedge funds, and more. However, these products and services are either non-existent or of very low quality. Curated Earners does not have any access to the real markets or any reputable brokers or dealers. Instead, they create their own fake markets and prices and manipulate them to their advantage.
Curated Earners also claims to have a team of experts and analysts who provide market insights and advice to their clients. However, these experts and analysts are either fictitious or unqualified. They do not have any credentials or experience in the financial industry. Instead, they use generic or plagiarized information from the internet or other sources and present them as their own.
Curated Earners claims to be based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. However, this is also a lie. Curated Earners does not have any physical presence or registered address in the Netherlands or anywhere else in the world. Instead, they use virtual offices, mail forwarding services, and VoIP phones to hide their true location and identity.
Curated Earners claims to have a 24/7 customer service team ready to assist their clients with any queries or issues. However, this is also a deception. Curated Earners does not have any real customer service team or representatives. Instead, they use automated systems, chatbots, or hired agents to communicate with their clients.
The communication with Curated Earners is usually one-way and limited. Curated Earners only contact their clients when they want to solicit more money from them or when they want to prevent them from withdrawing their money. Curated Earners do not respond to any requests for information, verification, or clarification from their clients. Curated Earners also block or ignore any complaints, disputes, or negative feedback from their clients.
Curated Earners is a boiler room scam that should be avoided by all means. This company is not regulated or licensed by any authority, and it does not provide any real investment products or services. Instead, it uses deceptive and fraudulent tactics to lure and exploit unsuspecting investors. If you have been contacted by Curated Earners, do not respond to their offers or give them any personal or financial information. If you have already invested with Curated Earners, contact the AFM or your local authorities as soon as possible, and try to recover your money. And remember, if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
