MOSCOW, April 5 – RIA Novosti. When investing in various assets, it is necessary to take into account the existing non-market risks that may arise due to deception and fraudulent schemes. Therefore, you should always remember a few rules, said Yulia Afanasyeva, an analyst at Finam Group, to the Prime agency.
According to her, one should, firstly, beware of dummy companies. “You see the familiar label of a financial company, bank, investment institution, and they offer money management or other forms of capital increase, be sure to check if this company is fake,” – the expert warns and advises to look closely to the details. For fake companies, the website address is different from the official one. There is a difference in the logo and branding as well.
You also need to compare the profit promise with the existing risk-free rate. It can be determined by the key rate of the Bank of Russia. It is very important to monitor the situation. For example, it would be good to know the current yield on safe bonds.
“Very often people, becoming victims of fraudsters, give their savings against receipt or transfer to accounts in” mythical Swiss banks. “Remember one more rule: the account must be issued personally to you. Check this carefully. Always think about your money, otherwise someone else will think of them as their own, “says Afanasyeva.
