Are you dealing with the real Ubuntu Invest?
Unfortunately this industry is full of scammers wanting to take your funds. And due to the success of Ubuntu Invest, we are seeing more and more of them using our branding and pretending to be us.
Ubuntu Invest strives to be the most secure trading platform, and a lot of trust we are building is being misused be scammers to get your money. Here are some things you can check to see if you are really dealing with Ubuntu Invest, or someone trying to take your money.
If you're on a WhatsApp group, then it is a scam. Ubuntu Invest does NOT use WhatsApp groups for communication. We do have some individual WhatsApp numbers linked from our official social media accounts where you are sent to our sales team. But we have no groups, and do not plan on ever using WhatsApp for groups. WhatsApp groups publish the contact numbers of participants, and for security reasons we cannot use this method.
Ubuntu Invest has one single Telegram Channel that we use to publish article updates, info on upcoming streams, signals and other useful information. This is the link to the ONLY Telegram channel we run https://t.me/OfficialUbuntuInvest. If it is not that channel, then it is a scam.
WhatsApp with Miss Nelisiwe Masango
This is another popular scam. And we've read a lot of these conversations, they are very good at what they do. Miss Masango does NOT use her personal WhatsApp to conduct business with the exception of perhaps a few people who have known her for years on a personal level. If you believe you are in a direct conversation with Miss Masango, please reach out to us to confirm this. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org and include the cellphone number you are speaking with. Miss Masango's personal assistant will reach out to her to confirm if this is one of her numbers for you. We will not give out her personal numbers.
High Return Investment Schemes
A very popular scam is posting that you will receive very high returns for a small investment. The idea is that you give them some money, and after a few days they've doubled it and pay it back. This is NOT something that we do, nor will ever do. We can go as far as to say there are ZERO chances that these sorts of investment schemes actually exist since the numbers they post is unrealistic. Ubuntu Invest does offer a Copy Trader program that will allow you to copy other successful traders, some of which show good returns, but nothing like what they display. You will never be required to send money to an individual trader. Your deposit will always go into your account.
Asked to Deposit into a Private Account
Ubuntu Invest is an authorised financial services provider. We're a well established company. We will not ask you to make a deposit into a personal account. The vast majority of our deposits are done through our client portal which you get access to after creating a free account with us.
