Is BWStocks legit?


The first thing we did was to check out their website. At first glance:


  • It has lots of spelling mistakes. It is not a great first impression.

  • They market 2 "investment plans". One offers 1% DAILY, and the second one offers 1.1%, also daily. Trust us on this; there is no asset manager worldwide that can achieve that level of profit.

  • Their "Latest News" section is... empty.

  • They claim to have their headquarters in New York, United States. However, they couldn't even spell "New York" correctly; on their website, it says Newyork. And when you check out what seems to be a fake address, it shows a residence in Queens. If you are a big, global financial player, your offices would be in Manhattan, not Queens.


Our verdict is that every public aspect of this website looks strange, unprofessional, and in some cases, a plain lie. So, we highly do not recommend you to trust this company. Just beware, there are many scams in Africa promising great returns.
