After YTN reported that a financial fraud case involving a ‘fake derivatives exchange’ took place, reports of similar damages have been reported by the relevant authorities.
There has also been a public petition calling for an investigation, but the police are considering designating a ‘responsible investigative agency’ in charge of the case as it is a nationwide case.
This is the exclusive report by reporter Kim Woo-jun.
[YTN 뉴스 / 지난 2일 : 이른바 ‘리딩 문자’를 뿌려서 투자자들을 모은 뒤 가짜 가상화폐 거래소로 유인해서 투자금을 가로채는 신종 사기 수법이 또 등장했습니다.]
A financial fraud case related to the ‘fake derivatives exchange’ reported by YTN consecutively since the 2nd.
After the report, reports of damage were received one after another to the police.
Hundreds of complaints were received in Busan, Daegu, Gwangju, Daejeon, and Cheongju, including the metropolitan area.
Some victims reported belatedly after YTN reported that they were suffering without knowing their family.

Accordingly, the Financial Supervisory Service has taken measures to protect investors.

A famous financial investment company whose name was stolen has sued the fraudulent organization with the police on allegations of trademark theft.
The problem is that even at this moment with hundreds of victims, the same crime that only changed the name of the exchange is still ongoing.
It is the same method from approaching the recommendation of stocks to inducing subscription to a specific ‘derivatives exchange’.
Victims sent a sincere letter urging the Anti-Corruption and Civil Rights Commission to investigate, saying that the police must act quickly to prevent further victims of crime, and also filed a petition with the Blue House one after another.
[김 모 씨 / ‘가짜 거래소’ 사기 피해자 : 제가 너무 절박해서, 너무 절박해서 속았나 봅니다. 정말 절박했기 때문에 조금 더 넓게 못 보고…. 이런 걸 처음 당해봐서, 저는 이렇게 안 살아봐서요. 잃을 거라곤 생각 못 했어요.]
The police are considering designating a ‘focused investigation agency’ that can jointly investigate cases by designating a specific provincial and provincial police agency as the number of damage reports is expanding nationwide.
