    Lastly, in relation to the matter, the Belgian FSMA had the following words of wisdom:

    “Swindlers may reach you in a number of different ways… The formulas may vary: purchase of cryptocurrencies, savings accounts based on cryptocurrencies, management agreements, ICOs, etc. Whatever the formula, the (false) promises are often the same: a very high rate of return, often around 8% per month (sometimes even more!); the possibility of withdrawing your money very easily and at any time (‘in a few clicks');”
