FinaCom does not offer funds recovery or chargeback services

The Financial Commission recently alerted the public to a scam involving fake FinaCom representatives. These impostors falsely claimed to be affiliated with FinaCom, aiming to exploit individuals who have suffered at the hands of illegitimate brokers. This alert follows a previous notice dated December 15, 2023, highlighting concerns over similar fraudulent activities.

The scam targets traders who have encountered issues such as lost funds or blocked withdrawals with brokers including Umarkets, TPG Deals, Universe Financial Brokers, Kiexo, Izzi, Your Global Deal, among others. The fraudsters offered recovery and chargeback services for a fee, pretending to be employees of FinaCom. They also issued bogus letters of guarantee using the names of non-existent legal firms like Orbital Limited, Arbitrum Law Firm, AK Law, Guardians Recovery, and more.

FinaCom stated that it does not offer funds recovery or chargeback services, nor does it engage in unsolicited communication with traders. Official interactions originate only from inbound inquiries through their website, The Commission also clarified that it never uses social networks or messengers for official communications, issues letters of guarantee, charges fees for its services to traders, or serves customers of non-member brokers.
