Private Placement Program Trading

Fraud protection attorneys

The Internet is full of various fast and easy money-making opportunities that promise to return a high yield, especially on the money of small investors. In many of these cases, such programs are pyramid or snow-ball schemes.  The first problem is the 100 M EURO minimum investment. Actually, there is no realistic point in trying to pool less than 100 M EURO. And here we have the first legal conflict! In many countries, it’s strictly illegal to pool money with promises of a high return. It is nearly impossible to manage bulk transactions (raising capital with many investors).

Another problem is the management and the brokers. How can they be trusted? If some party manages to aggregate 100 M Euro from hundreds of participants, they will not be able to pass the due diligence process, because pooled funds like that are not allowed to enter trading.

Most scams are usually made, or attempted, with smaller investors who will in fact never qualify as investors.

De Micco & Friends offers a fraud-check to investors for a fixed fee. As we know the business and also many programs and the players, we can proof every offer and all documents to protect unexperienced investors in this field.
