The supervisor of the markets warns of an increase in the cases of those affected who are cheated a second time when trying to recover the lost money
The last scam that threatens small investors is, in reality, a fraud inside another, ametafraudethatNational Stock Market Commission(CNMV) has begun to detect and about which has warned this Wednesday. It is calledrecovery room and they are companies that contact people who have been victims of other scams by financial bars and offer to recover their lost money, although in reality they never do it and end up cheating,for the second time, to the individual he allegedly intended to help.
"This type of action may come from the financial chiringuito that carried out the initial fraud or from other persons or companies that have acquired the affected lists", the CNMV assures in a note sent to warn of the situation.
This type of firms are not registered as legal market operators and, normally, make their appearance without the investor having requested them. Therefore, the supervisory body warns consumers to be aware that they can try again to invest money or even that their data is sold to other companies.
The CNMV also advises to identify if there are new indications of fraud, for example, that the companyask for money in advancein payment of taxes, fees or insurance policies as a prerequisite to provide the service offered. All of them, says the regulator, "are indications that this is arecovery room"
Another of the behaviors that should invite distrust is if the fraudster company contacts you on behalf of the CNMV, "since neither the CNMV nor its employees will directly contact the affected parties, nor will they authorize the use of their identity, corporate image or cnmv.es domain in order to recover the losses ".
The Commission, which in no case supervises the actions of this type of company, also recommends not responding toshare repurchase offersor recovery of losses without first making sure that they are companies with positive or reliable references.
