Who Are Money-Recoup.com?
What is the deal with this company then?
Based in Israel, specialising in helping British and Australian people?
OK well it seems kind of obtuse, but there's no law against that. It just means that most of the time they are at least a few hours out of the time zone of any of their clients. We notice that there is no US phone number; US laws may preclude them from advertising in the US as soliciting services related to CFDs to US citizens is outlawed, and Money Recoup obviously realise that.
It is a very insistent website, just from idle time this pops up:
Still, there is no law against that either.
They have a video on YouTube that appears to be angled toward the Australian market:
A video for a recovery company does seem odd to us, a recovery company is one entrenched in legal regulation, so they do not want anyone to make a decision quickly. They want people to think it through and only take on a recovery company if they have a good chance of getting back the money. The last thing that money recoup (assuming that they are a real recovery company) want is to waste time trying to recover money only to find that they are chasing their tail.
The other disturbing part about the video is that it is so exact. They know everything about how the scam was operated, as if they are talking about a particular company, or as if there is only actually one company run under lots of different names, and that they are intrinsically linked to that operation.
There are some other unusual features on this site -
What is this about - why are they using credit card/payment system icons with no reference to what they meaning could be. This does not ring true of a recovery company, but more the sort of thing we see the scammers do when they add Symantec and other security companies logos to their websites with not relevance of any kind.
It is our opinion (and it is just an opinion) that this company should not be trusted, and that their methods are likely questionable at best.
