WhatsApp Group

If you're on a WhatsApp group, then it is a scam. Ubuntu Markets does NOT use WhatsApp groups for communication. We do have some individual WhatsApp numbers linked from our official social media accounts where you are sent to our sales team. But we have no groups, and do not plan on ever using WhatsApp for groups. WhatsApp groups publish the contact numbers of participants, and for security reasons we cannot use this method.


Telegram Channels/Groups

Ubuntu Markets has one single Telegram Channel that we use to publish article updates, info on upcoming streams, signals and other useful information. This is the link to the ONLY Telegram channel we run If it is not that channel, then it is a scam.


WhatsApp with Miss Nelisiwe Masango

This is another popular scam. And we've read a lot of these conversations, they are very good at what they do. Miss Masango is no longer involved in any way in the business, but even if she was she does NOT use her personal WhatsApp to conduct business with the exception of perhaps a few people who have known her for years on a personal level. If you believe you are in a direct conversation with Miss Masango, please reach out to us to confirm this. You can email and include the cellphone number you are speaking with. Miss Masango's personal assistant will reach out to her to confirm if this is one of her numbers for you. We will not give out her personal numbers.


High Return Investment Schemes

A very popular scam is posting that you will receive very high returns for a small investment. The idea is that you give them some money, and after a few days they've doubled it and pay it back. This is NOT something that we do, nor will ever do. We can go as far as to say there are ZERO chances that these sorts of investment schemes actually exist since the numbers they post is unrealistic. Ubuntu Markets does offer a Copy Trader program that will allow you to copy other successful traders, some of which show good returns, but nothing like what they display. You will never be required to send money to an individual trader. Your deposit will always go into your account.


Asked to Deposit into a Private Account

Ubuntu Markets is an authorised financial services provider. We're a well established company. We will not ask you to make a deposit into a personal account.
