The investment frauds in Pakistan were performed by asking users to register on Binance and transfer the funds to a 3rd party wallet under the pretext of huge returns:

“These schemes benefit old clients at the cost of new clients and ultimately disappear when they have made substantial capital base worth billions of rupees.”

Based on the complaints raised by the citizens, Pakistan will investigate Binance after identifying 11 fraudulent mobile apps which stopped working after stealing the users’ funds. The apps identified by FIA are HFC, MCX, FXCOPY, BB001, BX66, UG, TASKTOK, AVG86C, and 91fp. In addition o the users that sign up on Binance to transfer the funds, the fraudsters added the victims in a Telegram group to provide expert opinion and each application hosted about 5000 customers on average:

“At least 26 suspect blockchain wallet addresses (Binance wallet address) have been identified where fraudulent amount may have been transferred. A letter has been written to Binance Holdings Limited to give the details of these blockchain wallet accounts as well as to debit block them.”

Binance was asked to give more details as well as supporting documents and API mechanisms that were used by the scammers to connect with Binance’s services. While the FIA blocked the bank account that was linked to the suspicious apps, the notice warned:
