Boiler Room scam
These types of investment frauds are commonly known as “boiler room” investment scams and are usually carried out by professional con artists, confident tricksters, and fraudsters who use fake names and mask their real locations and identities, whilst purporting to be hotshot brokers for a premium investment firms, usually based somewhere in Southeast Asia or Eastern Europe.
The money paid by the investor is never traded or invested. The funds are immediately stolen and laundered through “laundering agents” and “bankers” who take a commission for moving the money around the world, ultimately ending up either in cash, luxury assets, or in the personal accounts of the fraud masterminds.
The boiler room fraud industry is successful because of the international cross-border nature of this type of investment fraud. Many of the groups and suspects involved in this fraudulent activity are based in Southeast Asia but other boiler room operations have been uncovered in Spain, Cyprus, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Serbia, South Africa, and Israel.
