One of the numerous “Awards” of Private FX

To be attractive for investors, the company demonstrated constant profit for investors at its start.
The reason for those impressive profits was always the same: Most of investment PAMM-accounts were created and cooked by the company itself, beeing only the numbers on the screen. All the top traders making weekly 2-5% profit were not available for contact.

For the individual trading, the company did not pass the orders through into the interbank market. They was just offsetting traders longs and shorts against one and other.

To payout the investors, Private FX needed a constant flow of new funds. The bubble grew up until the August 2016. At the time for the first “hold releases” the investors began reporting the first withdraw issues and delays. The firm of Igor Mazepa started to “drop down’ the profitable PAMM accounts and indices in order to reduce ogligations and withdrawal. This helped just for the limited time. However, the marketing actions kept the project afloat for a few more months. Paid blogers and media did their job.

Concorder Capital press-release about crash PrivateFX


Relations between Igor Mazepa and swindler Pavel Krymov

In spring 2015 after crash and insolvency of his scam Forex Trend, Pavel Krymov offered Igor Mazepa to join a new project as a main shareholder.

The business model was simple and ruthless. Forex trend owed to the thousands of depositors and investors millions of US dollars. Most part of these people had lost their last money, had sold their appartements, had taken loans or had put all their savings into “profitable forex broker” Forex Trend. These people would be ready to have their money returned at any cost. With the right marketing this thousands crowd would be turned into the new customers base ready-to-use. However, deceived people would never trust again without a strong guarantee of a business personality such as Mazepa.

So Igor Mazepa became a major beneficiary and shareholder of a new Krymov’s project Forex Trend 2.0. The new company called Private FX inherited everything from the old scam Forex Trend wrapped in a new packaging. Mode of operation, web platform, transaction algorithm and essentially customer base didn’t cost Mazepa anyting! Even the trade terminal MT4 was inherited from the old company! Krymov needed only Mazepa’s name aganst the major stake in Private FX

On February 6,2018 at the Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport Pavel Krymov has been detained bu the border police at the request of criminal police of Kazakhstan. The department of internal affairs of RK incriminates him cases on Section 190/4 of Criminal Code of Kazakhstan (large scale fraud). For the committed financial crimes threatens him up to 10 years of imprisonment.

Below are the proofs of the connection between Igor Mazepa and international financial criminal Pavel Krymov

Year 2014 ( Forex Trend time)

Official document names Pavel Krymov as Director of Skopalino Finance

In January 2017, after the crash of Private FX, Skopalino Finance was renamed Concorde Investments (Cyprus) Ltd., and joined the Concorde Capital group of Igor Mazepa


Press release on the Official site of Concorde Capital dated February 2017
(in Russian language)

Official note of a fine to Pavel Krymov.

In November 2017 he is still mentioned as Shareholder of Skopalino Finance!


Licence suspention of Concorde Investment

Concorde capital said, that Concorde Investments (Cyprus) Ltd had a suspension due to a mamagement change. That means Mazepa is trying to clean up tracks. Obviously this suspension resulted to this ridiculous $10000 fine to Krymov above.

All this proves that Pavel Krymov remains a close partner of Igor Mazepa. Both have stolen more than $ 10 million of the Private FX customers. Despite hundreds of claims, Igor Mazepa remains unpunished because of his close friendship with the Ukranian president Petro Poroshenko.



Concorde Capital: Frauds and Hacking on CFD market

Before starting his scam project Private FX ( Forex Trend 2.0)  in 2015, Igor Mazepa and Concorde Capital got involved into a large international scandal with a lawsuit in USA. The group of ukranian hackers broke into newswires and stole important financial news. The hackers went on to pass the insider information to traders.

The entire illicit affair resulted in a staggering $100 million in profits for those involved.

In an interesting twist, it has come to light that it may not just be the hackers and a few dozen traders who took part in the fraud. A Ukrainian broker is currently fending off allegations that it was involved in the insider trading scam.

The company in question was nothing else than Concorde Bermuda Ltd., which was faced fraud charges from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Concorde Bermuda is the part of Concorde Capital Group. Concorde Capital Partners have also being accused to wiring about $1.5 million to Jaspen. Jaspen is an entity that took part in CFDs trading through several online brokers, and the trades the firm executed are considered suspicious as they occurred between the time important news were uploaded to Newswire computer services and when the news were released to the public.

Here below presented the SEC complaint to the Court if New Jersey,  USA against 32 hackers and traders. Concorde Bermuda is included in this complaint.

And this is how the story finishes for Concorde

..”Without admitting or denying the Commission’s allegations, Concorde consented to the entry of a court order enjoining it from violating Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act …. and ordering it to pay $4.2 million in disgorgement.
The Commission’s litigation continues against the remaining defendants charged in the case”


Put simply, Concorde Capital could not refute the allegation and preferred to pay $4.2 Millions to bury the scandal.
