Typical song and dance for these scammers. I was contacted by someone on Wechat who claims to own a couple clothing companies in Hong Kong but the economy is bad so this person claims their "uncle" is guiding them on trading Forex. This person is claiming to make $25K plus a day based upon their "uncles" guidance and will seek permission to get you an account to trade. The company is called SCForex (aka Hong Kong South China International) and like many of these fake companies the only way to contact them is a generic email address. The scammer is not very smart because they are posting pictures of someone and the backdrop for some of the pictures is the Shanghai skyline (near the bund) but they claim to live in Wan Chai Hong Kong. Below are more details, please don't invest with these scammers.

这些骗子的典型歌舞。我在微信上与某人联系,该人声称在香港拥有一对服装公司,但经济状况不佳,因此该人声称他们的“叔叔”正在指导他们进行外汇交易。此人声称根据其“叔叔”的指导每天要赚取$ 25K,并将寻求许可以获取交易帐户。该公司称为SCForex,与许多假冒公司一样,唯一的联系方式是通用电子邮件地址。骗子不是很聪明,因为他们正在张贴某人的照片,其中一些照片的背景是上海的天际线(在外滩附近),但他们声称居住在香港湾仔。以下是更多详细信息,请不要投资于此骗子。

Company was founded in 2020 and also goes by the name Hong Kong South China International

Hi, can share your experience? Did you eventually put in money and invested with them?

I am in the same situation now, am friends with this guy in WeChat, we have even spoken on the phone a few times etc.

He is encouraging me to invest with this forum and says he will teach me how to do it etc.

I don’t mind trying with a small sum of money first but is concerned with it being a scam and not being able to withdraw my money afterwards.
Thank you!

This is 100% a scam. If you give them any money you will never get it back no matter what they say. This scam is ran by a criminal organization in China and they steal ten of millions of dollars each year through fake investment companies.

Oh no, that’s awful! So you did not put in any money with them right?

I didn't invest any money with this fake company but know others who did and lost everything. The minute the money was wired the funds were gone forever. Why would any random person on Wechat want to help you make money through investment? Look up the thread on this site called Kill Pig Plate. You are likely being lured through romance and the person you are talking to is pretending to like you. Either way, don't give these people a single penny of your hard earned money!

Thank you so much for your advice! I will stop talking to this guy and delete his contact once and for all.
Thank you once again! You helped prevent a scam from happening, appreciate your help in sharing.

Hi there! What if I have already deposited money in? Should I try to withdraw everything immediately and close my account if possible??

Yes, you should try to withdraw the money immediately. Don't mention closing the account yet or they will become suspicious. Maybe withdraw everything but a small amount, for example leave only $40 in the account, so that they let you withdraw the remaining funds.
