Verify an Investment Firm in Hong Kong

Investment Fraud is rising, scams such as stock fraud, broker fraud and investment scams are all well organised and not easily to detect. Digitpol has seen an increase in Investment scams targeting Hong Kong. Digitpol’s operational units deploy daily to assist with the verification and checks on investment firms offering such sales.

Digitpol conducts checks on investment firms at several layers, document examination, email examination, verification at the stock exchange, share certification checks and on-site visits to the investment company.

It is typical that fake trading and Investment fraudsters have used a fake website that are similar to the name of a real trading firm that's live and registered in Hong Kong, the fraud is often that the website is not the actual website of the real firm or a fake address is provided on the website, often a different bank account name is used for deposits. Digitpol can check all aspects of a investment company, its location, structure, license, website and the domain. We carry out checks with the real company to confirm it is theirs (real) or not (fake). We can validate if the company really exists and if they are "live" in the sector of trading. In the majority of cases, Digitpol visits the companies office to validate the checks and meet with its staff. In the event the findings are fraudulent, then a Police complaint and procedure to recover funds is required.
