Fake regulators have been a problem for several years now. Especially with the emergence of largely unregulated cryptos, fake regulators have been hunting for victims as operators of fund recovery scams. In Germany, these scammers are currently active with the websites Kryptoaufsicht.com and Boersenaufsicht.net, luring victims with free advice. The German BaFin has issued a warning against these scams. Please do not fall for them and stay clear from them.
Fund recovery scams

The two fund recovery scams Kryptoaufsicht.com and Boersenaufsicht.net, claim on their website that they are the only provider specializing in recovering funds from fraud organizations and are authorized and regulated by the UK’s Financial Markets Authority (FCA). This is, of course, complete bullshit. No regulator in this world authorizes Fund Recovery Scheme operators.
The scammers’ goal is to get money from you on the one hand and, even more urgently, information about you personally and the scam operators. With this information, the fund recovery scammers often take money from the scammers, but they keep it for themselves. Believe it or not, these scammers know each other and often blackmail themselves.
If you have any information about the fake regulators Kryptoaufsicht.com and Boersenaufsicht.net and their operators, please let us know via our whistleblower system, Whistle42.
