What is Crypto Pro Investment?


According to their website Crypto Pro Investment (CPI) is an investment company that find investment opportunities for individual and institutional investors with the help of their skills in the “online trading markets that include foreign exchange, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, exchange-traded fund (ETF), certificate of deposit (CD), and bonds“.

You can also see that CPI is promoted as an investment company that offers investment packs that are supposed to give a very high return on investments (ROI) from the company’s trading in cryptocurrencies and mining, Real Estate, Forex, Equities and “Physical Assets”. If you read my most recent reviews for similar websites like Grossbyte or Coinetor Crypto, you can see that it’s still very popular to use cryptocurrencies to get people to invest money.

You should ask yourself why an investment and trading firm should seek or solicit for investment capital or funds of any kind online or via social media without any investment prospects and bank connections or bank rights.

You should also ask yourself how an investment company could offer such a high ROI in such a short amount of time.

CPI WhoisIf you look up the domain you can see that it was registered through NameCheap, LLC (a domain register company) and created on 2018-06-19. The domain has been paid to 2019-06-19, so it’s only been paid a year ahead. That could be an indication that the owner doesn’t count on the business to last for a very long time but we need to learn more to draw any conclusion.

The website is registered for PrivacyGuardian.org and the company WhoisGuard, Inc which is a partner to NameCheap who offers services to hide the real information on who’s behind the website. They place their own information in the public domain information and often forward emails and letters to the company or the persons behind.

Right on the front page of CPI they are stating that they are a legal company registered in the UK and if you click on “CHECK CERTIFICATE” you get to a file that looks like a company registration document:

CPI Companies doc

This “Certificate of Incorporation” shows the company “Crypto Pro Investment LTD” with a company registration number. You can always search for a UK registered company on the website of the UK Governments “Companies House” who is the UK:s companies registration authority. If we search for the registration number on that webpage  we will come up with this result:

CPI dissolved

As you can see there is another cryptocurrency named company that has that registration number and what’s worse, that company is dissolved since 19 December 2017!

There you have it….this so-called online business is using another dissolved business registration number to mislead people to think that they are a real company.

It always important to look up the owners and leaders in a business before you join or/and pay any money but there are no people mentioned on the website.

When you click on “Support” in the top menu you will get to a page with a Google map, an anonymous form, and this address:

CRYPTO PRO INVESTMENT
No 82 Oxfords Avenue, Off Crypto Mall,
United Kingdom

…but if we search for that address we will only get to a souvenir store in London (with very bad reviews).

If we instead click on the Google map we will end up in the British town of Lincoln with the address “382 High St Lincoln LN5 7SF”.

Cryptotrades streetview

There are two businesses registered on that address:

– Lajkonik Ltd

– Cryptotrades.club

Lajkonik seems to be a little Polish food store according to the street view pictures. Cryptotrades.club, on the other hand, is a website and it looks almost exactly like the website of CPI!

So you got two websites that are almost identical except the name but is someone of them a real online business? Are one of them a clone?

EDIT 2018-10-01: The website Cryptotrades.club has been taken down right before I was done with this review.

When you look at Cryptotrades website you can see that they also state that they are a legal company and also have a button to click to see if they are a real company. However, in this case, the link goes directly to UK’s companies house and a company called “BORG TECHNOLOGY UK LTD”. At the bottom of Companies house registration info about this company you see this:

Cryptotrades company

So Cryptorades is a real company but it has changed its name to Borg Technology UK. New companies that change names before a year goes by can be a serious sign that something isn’t right.

Back to CPI – there are some statistics on the right side that you can see if you scroll down a bit on the front page:

CPI Statistics

Quite impressive numbers – right? There’s only one problem…the numbers are static, i.e, they are not changing.

Another thing to look up is the “Alexa rank” that gives you a rough idea of how popular the site is and how it trends. The website started before the start of the summer of 2018 but has no traffic data to show and have a very low global rank of about 5,1 million. The ideal situation is a high or very high rank that’s stable and that’s showing that the site has been active for a long or very long time.

CPI AlexaBecause there are no traffic data we will not take a look at where the visitors are coming from.

It’s important what you think and I really want to help people, like you, and that’s why your very welcome to comment below this review if you have anything to say about Crypto Pro Investment, both good and bad. I will not delete any comment (except spam, promotions/recruiting, hate message etc.) so you can see that this is an honest review. I will respond to comments as fast as I can.

What do you have to pay?


There are four different investment packages offered by CPI that are priced in US dollars and offer extremely high returns on investment (ROI) in a very short time:

CPI Packs

The first one requires a minimum deposit of $10 and offer an ROI of 20% in 24 hours, the next one also requires a minimum deposit of $10 but offer an ROI of 40% in 48 hours, the third a minimum deposit of $1000 with an ROI of 100% in 2 days and the last one a minimum deposit of $2000 with an ROI of 150% in 2 days.

These extremely high ROI numbers are just ridiculous and even more ridiculous when you consider the extremely short time in which they are supposed to deliver the return on your money. No real investment company can deliver anything near those numbers!

Even thou the investment packs are presented in US dollars, you can only pay them with the cryptocurrency Bitcoin (BTC).

This is without mentioning transaction and exchange fees, taxes etc.

What do you get for the money you put in?


You are supposed to get access to a professional trader that trades with the investment you put in so you can get the high stated ROI that are announced. You will also get a placement in the company’s downline and binary tree (see below) so you can promote it to others.

Because there is no way to confirm that the money you invest is used for real trading or for any real product or service you can’t really say that you get something with a real value here.

How can you make money?


The compensation is (as usual) based on how much you invest and how good you are at recruiting.

The main way to earn money is supposed to be on the ROI from the money you invest in the different investment plans as shown above. Even if it’s true there is nothing that says that you will earn anything on the investment. An investment position can go up and down and no one can guarantee any fixed return.

The second way to earn money is by referring others to join under you (sponsorship) and get a percent off their investment (referral bonus). The percent seems to be 5% on the first level (direct), 3% on the second level (indirect) and 2% on the third level (indirect).

If you manage to recruit you should also consider the bad-will for you if this business fails or turn out to be a fraud.

As long as there’s nothing that proves that CPI has any real product and services this business builds on people joining and the way to earn is to recruit others! There is never any guarantees that you earn anything and in this case is also very risky if you consider the lack of real information about this business.

 

So…what’s good?


– IF the investment part was real AND they were able to generate a profit AND the business was paying, you could have earned money. Remember that even then the claimed ROI is something that the most respected and skilled investors in the world would never be able to accomplish…far from!

– IF your good at recruiting others to this business AND the business was paying and real, you could have earned money, especially if you were in early.

 …and what’s bad?


– No owners or people connected to this business are mentioned on the website or can be found online.

– No real company is behind this website but a faked company registration document is used to deceive visitors that there are.

– As long as no evidence is provided that this is a real investment company with professional trading there’s really nothing of real value for the member to promote except the membership itself. If that’s the only thing to promote it will only work as long as new members join and invest money in the business so the owner can pay out to all the existing members. If that’s the case then this is a so-called Pozi/Pyramid Scheme.

– As always as there are cryptocurrency involved (in this case BTC) it means that you have close to ZERO CHANCE to get your money back if something goes wrong and you have paid with that currency.

VERDICT: Very Dishonest


Score: 1/10

Recommended for: NobodyVery Dishonest

There is no information what so ever about who’s behind or who are working with this online business and there is a link to a FAKED UK Companies House registration document on the home page. Much of the information is misleading and only used to lure people to invest in their extremely high ROI investment plans.

You probably have zero chance to earn in this business because it’s a fraud but if it was real and you had the chance to earn in this program you still must be good at recruit and get others to pay a minimum of $10 but even then you can’t be sure in any way that you can cash out your money. So it would cost and you can’t be sure to get any real products or services.

Remember that if you join this business that it will not only cost you a lot of money but also a lot of time, like promote and recruit, logging in and out in your back office, read the news, contact support, read in groups etc.

Even more important to think about is that if you think (like me) that this isn’t a very ethical online business you should not support it. You will lose a lot in goodwill and you can destroy your personal brand because there is a good chance that the money goes to owners and leaders that want to deceive the members. I myself will NOT support that!

The result from this review makes me convinced that Crypto Pro Investment Company is a fraud and very dishonest. Stay away and be careful if you see a similar online business!

    Wonderful post Jan! It’s always a great habit to look up online businesses before giving away any personal information or money. I’ve found many websites that seemed so legit but all I had to do was google them and I knew. More people need to be aware, I just wish someone could remove these fake websites.

      Hi, Nathan and thank you!

      Absolutely, everyone should do their “due diligence” or research before they trust any online business website.

      Nowadays many dishonest businesses have very professional looking websites and some of them seems to use the same themes. It’s get harder and harder to see which ones who are dishonest based on the appearance but there are always something that expose them.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to find out if this company is legit or not. It does get a little overwhelming out there and you think if you give a company money they will help you when in fact they are just a scam. I will stay far away from Crypto Pro Investment . Thank you again for digging a little deeper than most.

      Hi, Heather and thanks for your kind words!

      It’s easy to get overwhelmed by all the online “opportunities” out there as you say so it requires a lot of time and patience to see whos honest or not. A lot of the dishonest ones can be very helpfully until you give them money, then they just want to get rid of you. Many are also trying to stress you to a decision so you don’t have time to investigate their business.

      Good to hear that you will stay away from this fraud!

      Regards, Jan
