Seus International Scam Update
SEUS International Scam – Here Is How It Works
An FBI Public Service Announcement was released on September 16, 2021 warning of a new trend in which scammers are convincing people to send money with the promise that it will be used for investment or trading cryptocurrencies. From January 1st, 2021 — July 31st, 2021, the FBI received over eighteen hundred complaints related to this type of scam. These complaints resulted in over $133 million in losses.
“Unfortunately, these types of scams are very prevalent. We have seen victims from all walks of life, but unfortunately, most victims do not report the scam,” stated Matthew Stern, Chief of Cyber Investigations at CNC Intelligence one of the world’s leading Crypto Investigations, Asset Recovery, and Offshore Experts. “We urge all victims of these scams to report them, US residents and citizens should report them to IC3.gov. Reporting is important because it helps federal law enforcement go after the biggest scams and the more that they are reported the more likely they are to be investigated and prosecuted by the Department of Justice.”
According to the FBI, the average person falls victim to a cryptocurrency scam once every two weeks. Scammers are constantly finding new ways of getting their victims hooked, such as through dating apps and social media sites like Facebook or Instagram where they can easily build trust with potential marks before asking them about investing in crypto or foreign exchange – which has been increasing rapidly this year!
“Unfortunately, these types of scams have devastating consequences not only for the victims but their loved ones as well.” said Roman Garcia, former FBI Special Agent and a leading member of the CNC Crypto Investigation Team, “It is vital that victims have a support structure to deal with the non-financial consequences of these scams and that they are careful to ensure that they protect themselves from future scams from the same or similar perpetrators.”

Meta Quotes Software
Seus International was licensing MetaTrader 5 trading platform through MetaQuotes. Victims of the Seus International scam were given user names and passwords once they supposedly invested a minimum of $100,000.
According to the MetaQuotes website:
MetaQuotes is a leading developer of financial trading software. Established in 2000, MetaQuotes is considered one of the leading developers of software applications for brokerages, banks, and exchanges. The company’s representative offices are located in many countries around the world.
The company’s commitment to excellence and simplicity is highly appreciated by its customers. Today MetaQuotes partners with nearly a thousand of the largest financial institutions from around the world. This is the result of the professional competence and reliability of MetaQuotes.
Successful traders from around the world have chosen the MetaTrader 5 multi-asset platform for trading Forex, exchange instruments, and futures. The platform offers advanced financial trading functions, as well as superior tools for technical and fundamental analysis. MetaTrader 5 can also trade automatically by using trading robots and trading signals. In addition to the desktop and mobile versions, the platform is available on the web and can be accessed from any device.
The victim will be contacted by someone who claims to have knowledge about cryptocurrency investments or trading opportunities and then directed towards the Meta Trader 5 online platform where they can invest money in return for profits that are later withdrawals once the initial amount has been turned over several times (with each withdrawal becoming smaller).
