It was registered only last year and expires this year, why would a big financial company only buy a domain for 1 year?

States they are the owners of Aim Corporate Pty Ltd, but no one who works at https://aimtradingeu.com/ knows who they are and the registered address is completely different to what’s on the website.

I'm sorry, but it is almost certain that you will not be able to get your money back, but the best thing to do is to report the fraud to your local police and to your bank.

You should also be wary of anyone who claims that they can get your money back. This will almost certainly be another scam and will involve you having to pay fees upfront for them to try to get your money returned (they won't bother trying, they will just pocket the "fees" and claim that they failed to get the refund).

Please do not tell scammers that they are listed here - it will take them seconds to change their fake details and their new details will not be listed for any future victims to find.

thespacexipo.com is a fake domain that was registered only a couple of weeks ago by someone using a privacy service to hide their identity.

I was almost scammed by these people.

I clicked on a link in YouTube about Starlink IPO where I had to put my email details in.

It was a perfect English accent person trying to scam me on some IPO Starline shares, but was told I had to buy Spacex first.

They wanted my drivers license and copy of a my home address electricity bill, which if company is fake is like giving keys to the candy shop. With this they can start to steal your identity....

This was required before I could open a trading account. I became suspicious about this. He kept hounding me to send details but was too busy with work to do any further investigation. Then Richard Thorpe Senior Equity consultant had put aside Spacex shares for me... I thought no one allocates shares with no identification.

I did an ABN search, website search, AFS search.

The website http://www.AIMTRADINGEU.COM was regestered in the small country town in NSW which is BS. It would be registered in a large city. And if an Australian company would be a COM.AU address at the end.

But the biggest problem was when I did an AFS search they did not have a license which was another nail in the coffin.

I also did a google search which showed very little for this company. Their website looked impressive but with very little substance. I looked on google maps and showed a non discript address location in Canberra and not Sydney or Melbourne which was very strange.

I emailed Richard Thorpe asking about what was wrong with them not having an AFS license and I never heard from him again. If he was real he would have responded.

I have also subscribed to http://www.equifax.com.au an Australian credit reference site that monitors yours details for a lot of things, better to be safe than sorry.

I tried to report this on a govt site but could not find anywhere.

AN email from them......
I got the impression that the working day might take over and inhibit you from completing the registration.

A block of Space X has been reserved for your account.

150 @ 56$ USD

It will be locked for you until Monday the 4th of April.


Kind regards,
