Today, Cybertrace investigators are issuing an urgent alert about Claim Justice. Scam victims looking for help in recovering their funds should steer clear of Claim-Justice.com or its affiliates (such as Claim-Justice.biz). Like other recovery scam artists, this outfit likely only pretends to help scam victims while simply fleecing them a second time. Read our Crypto Recovery Scam Investigation HQ blog for more details on their modus operandi. In the meantime, let’s take a quick look at all the red flags this operation raises.
Scam Warnings by Others
Interestingly, the first hurdle is actually getting onto the Claim Justice website! If you have installed standard internet security software, it will likely block access to the Claim-Justice.com site. It will also explicitly flag the site as a dangerous scam. This is a pretty good indication that the site is not trustworthy! In addition, some other investigative outfits have cottoned on to Claim Justice and are naming it as a likely scam.
False and Contradictory Claims
If you can get onto the Claim Justice website, the next thing to note is the use of language. Firstly, they make a lot of highly confident claims that clients get back all they have lost. As any expert in the space of cyber investigation and funds recovery knows, it is a highly complex business, and you simply cannot guarantee results. Doing so is the mark of a conman! In addition, there are other claims that plainly contradict each other. For example, Claim Justice asserts that it is “a start-up business with 5 years of experience in the field of marketing and media”, which sounds interesting but completely unrelated to fraud investigation. It also doesn’t match its website domain registration date of August 2020. A little further, it claims that it was “founded for the purpose of protecting customers around the world from scammers”. Well, which one is it?
Legitimate companies will have no hesitation to say who owns, runs and regulates them, but not Claim Justice, which remains faceless and secretive. Firstly, their very name and web address seek to imitate those of a legitimate UK legal firm specializing in compensation. This trading off reputations built by genuine established businesses is a common scam tactic. Secondly, the Claim Justice website does not mention the names of any directors or employees. Thirdly, there are no records for Claim Justice or any of its employees on LinkedIn (there is a Claims Justice Ltd page, which has zero posts and only two anonymous employees). Finally, recently created Facebook and Instagram pages show no content or activity beyond an initial post and do not identify any employees. Very suspicious!
When it comes to who is actually behind Claim Justice, it gets even more nebulous. The Claim Justice homepage states that Money Pay Ltd owns and operates its website. At first glance, there are several companies by that name registered in Israel as well as the UK. However, in its About us section, Claim Justice claims that Cyprus-registered Bluespirit Tech Holdings Ltd is the company behind their brand. Again, which is it? While a deeper investigation would be necessary to untangle these webs, it certainly raises significant red flags for our analysts.
Fake News & Fake Reviews
As discussed in a recent blog, scammers are taking advantage of unverified customer review sites to post fake positive reviews. This manipulation of the reputation economy lulls potential targets into a false sense of security and makes them easy victims. In addition, some fraudsters have stepped it up even further by generating fake news articles. These are designed to deceive by providing supposedly independent journalistic credibility. However, a quick review of some of these articles about Claim Justice (such as here, here, here, and here) shows them to be uncritical puff pieces without any journalistic scrutiny. In other words: nothing more than propaganda!
Verdict: It Walks, Talks and Quacks like a Scam!
When considering all these red flags in aggregate, the evidence strongly suggests that Claim Justice is indeed a scam. At the very least, do not invest any money with this outfit!
