According to an announcement made on the website of the Russian self-regulatory body CRFIN, an Internet entity named PROM 24 has been blacklisted. The company claims on its website an outrageous rate of return on deposits made with the company.
The website states that the firm has developed an “investment plan” which brings 7% daily returns to the depositors. At the same time a “partnership program” is being offered to depositors bringing in new PROM 24 clients, with a bonus totalling 10% of the new clients’ deposits.
The regulator explains in its announcement that the entity does not show credibility as to how the returns are achieved and appears to be based on false premises. In addition, no warranties of any kind can be provided by the company to its depositors about the safety of client funds.
