It is well understood that financial pyramids are designed to collapse sooner or later. If you look at numerous forums dedicated to hyips on the Internet, you’ll see that the most common topic, even more than making a profit, is the tracking for the HYIP admin.
There are only two reasons for such actions. First of all, the people who want to get back the invested and lost money are engaged in the search. The second category of those in the search includes depositors who were dissatisfied with the size of the profits received and want to improve their financial results, including at the expense of representatives of the first category.
It should be noted that there are three variants of searches. Each is quite different, but in all cases the final result is the same. No one can be found, and the search turns into an additional problem. So, what are the currently practiced ways to find HYIP admins?
Expedition tracking. This type of search is born in the forum depths. In the process of hot discussion a person is sure to appear who has information about the administrator’s location or has connections at the highest level, which let him find anyone and bring to justice. The legend can be the most diverse, and depends solely on its author’s imagination. This may be work in the FSB (Federal Security Service), and using secret military services, and searching for a user via an IP address through special services. The main goal of such information is to attract “customers” by describing in the most colorful and authentic manner his own opportunities to find people and bring them to legal responsibility.
After all, the author begins to develop a standard story – that what is left is only to pay for the services of these very representatives of special services. Most of the HYIP depositors drop out at this stage, but certainly there are a few restless ones, ready to pay for catching the admin. As a result, this person receives a certain sum, often several thousand dollars, after which he happily disappears.
Police tracking. Such a search consists in applying to the police with a claim about fraudulent activity. In the overwhelming majority of cases, the police cannot find anyone, and even if the administrator should be found, he appears to be an insolvent teenager or a station homeless who agreed to give his personal details to the HYIP representatives for a couple of vodka bottles.
Claiming to the police is a very dangerous way of looking for an administrator, since it can lead to law enforcement agencies counterclaiming the applying person. According to statistics, about 15% of all claims end in such a way. When writing an application, it is required to describe in detail the essence of fraud, that is, the HYIP and your participation in it. And it is at this moment that different questions arise. For example, if the person was going to pay taxes on profits, where he took significant funds for investments, why he used anonymous payment services to transfer money, and most importantly, if he attracted other people while participating in the referral program, that is, in fact, was an accomplice in the financial pyramid.
Taking into account the impossibility of finding the actual organizers, the police will be happy to report on bringing to justice the accomplices of the financial crime.
As for the police’s ability to search for such criminals, the existing anti-cyber crime departments are mainly engaged in finding scammers who steal personal information of credit card holders and pose a threat to the banking system. They just do not have time for all the rest. The usual linear police departments are useless in search of admins.
Lawless tracking. When using the services of representatives of the criminal world, it is worthwhile to understand that the tricksters’ services will have to be paid regardless of the final result in any case.
You can use such a search method only in cases when it is about returning significant amounts, not less than 10-15 thousand dollars invested in hyips. Often it is precisely the fee to be paid to “bandits” for their services. HYIP admin is not just a petty thief from the district. They can’t find him by the code of criminals, which means that the bandits will have to go to the appropriate specialists, including computer men. Naturally, the client will have to pay for all this. The options “you have not found anybody” in this world do not work, and there is a possibility to run into troubles with representatives of the criminal world.
If to combine all of the above-said, we can certainly say that it is practically useless to look for the missing admin, and rarely do such searches give any positive result. but they can lead to additional financial losses and other difficulties. Often, it is much better to abandon such searches altogether, and to put up with the loss of money. after all, HYIPs initially provides for a high degree of risk.
