Who are Capital Way?

Depsite claiming “Absolute Transparency” on their website, Capital Way provides no details of who is behind the business.

The company claims a ten year track record and provides records of supposed past performance going back several years. All such claims are fraudulent. The capitalway.com domain is anonymously registered, and was updated on 21 January 2019.

Capital Way has a Facebook page on which numerous content-free posts have been backdated to as far back as 2013. However, Facebook’s “Page Transparency” box shows that the page was in reality created on 18 February 2019.

The website’s Terms & Service identify Capital Bridge’s corporate identity as Eastridge Capital Limited, which was incorporated in the Marshall Islands in July 2018. Marshall Islands incorporation is a favourite for fraudsters due to its essentially non-existent regulation.

There is no evidence that Capital Way existed prior to July 2018 at the earliest, and the scam is likely to have started in earnest in February 2019.

The company claims to be headquartered at the prestigious address of One Canada Square, Canary Wharf in the UK. This is another easily disprovable lie as Capital Way does not appear on One Canada Square’s list of occupants.

How safe is the investment?

Capital Way is currently being promoted in the UK via Gmail ads. Use of Euros on its website suggest it may be promoted in other European jurisdictions.

Despite promoting investments in the UK and managing a collective forex investment, neither Capital Way nor Eastridge Capital Limited appear on the FCA register. This means the company is breaking the law right from the off.

Capital Way’s refusal to release details of its directors, its willingness to break securities law, its lies as to when it was established and fabricated track record, and its implausible claims to generate returns of 50% per year (when 8% per year is considered a “high” projection for a legitimate, diversified stockmarket-based investment) confirm beyond doubt that Capital Way is an investment scam.

Depending on how long Capital Way’s anonymous directors decide to keep the scam running, this may be a simple take-the-money-and-run scam, an advance fee fraud, or a Ponzi scheme.

Either way the outcome for anyone who hands money to Capital Way is the same; they are certain or virtually certain to lose their money.

I invested in Capital Way and they have disappeared. How do I get my money back?

Your money has been stolen by persons unknown and the chance of recovery is minimal.

If anyone contacts you claiming they can recover your money, it is almost certain to be another scam. They will ask you for “legal fees” which you will never see again.

Investors who fell for this scam should change their contact details as they are likely to be targeted by – and fall for – similar scams in the future.

  1. I am one of the Victims. At first, the software seemed to be really professional and authentic. I found many favorable reviews about its performance and delivered results. So, I decided to invest in it and try to achieve success in the online trading sphere. Soon, I realized that the software was swallowing all my investments. I invested over $140,000 and couldn’t withdraw my money, months passed and still nothing. So, I reached out to a Certified Binary Options Recovery Expert [BrevEdit: Fraud recovery fraud removed.] to help me recover my funds, I have been able to recover $100,000 and the remaining $40,000 is in progress. I really can’t tell how happy I am.

  2. Hi Karen, I have a question. If it was a scam how is it that you are getting your money? Why did they not run away with it?

  3. I have a little problem with this review. I have an account with Capital Way. When I requested to withdraw money, it was sent to my bank account within a few hours. I do not work with Capital Way nor have they paid me to say this. If this is a so-called scam, don’t you think some law enforcement officials would have reacted already. This article makes no sense in today’s day and age

    How much of your money?

    If it was only a small part, this is known in the trade as a “convincer”. The purpose is to make you think exactly what you are thinking, so you hand over more money.

    If you withdrew more than you put in, then your profit was stolen from another Capital Way investor, as in any Ponzi scheme.

    The fact that Capital Way has handed some money to you does not alter the fact that it has no magic algorithm producing 50% annual returns, is not registered with any regulator, tells obvious lies about how long it has been in business, and is a scam.

    If this is a so-called scam, don’t you think some law enforcement officials would have reacted already.

    “If it was a scam the government would have shut us down” is the oldest cliché in the playbook. Law enforcement officials do not care if people hand their money to scammers. Any action they take is almost always after the fact, and often non-existent.

    As for “Karen”, she has not had any money from Capital Way, she is a fraud recovery scammer.

  5. These clowns have called me several times trying to persuade me to deposit some cash with them, despite me telling them at every turn that I am not interested.

    Did my own digging and came to the same conclusion as in the main article above.

    The last call I got, the guy (Ethan) tried very hard to convince me that he was sat in an office in Canary Wharf. The fact that his telephone number started with 0203 was a huge give-away – 0203 numbers are geographical numbers that anyone can rent to give the impression that they are based in London, when they can actually be pretty much anywhere in the world.

    When I said that they weren’t FCA-regulated, he claimed that they are ‘simply a software company’ and as such don’t need to be regulated, so aren’t breaking any FCA regulations. I explained that their entire company structure was designed to avoid falling foul of the laws (in the UK at least) and that I was sure that the FCA would not be satisfied with this as an explanation, when the ‘software company’ was asking investors to deposit sums of cash into a trading account.

    I haven’t heard back since.

    For your wallets’ health, you should stay away from this scam.
