Online fraudsters have become sophisticated in their methods of obtaining money, digital assets or personal information from their targets.
Cyber criminals may pose as legitimate companies, such as Cumberland, to perpetrate their scams. In some cases, fraudsters may use imposter social media accounts, mobile apps and web sites that are designed to look like legitimate companies. These scams can be complicated, involving repeated contact by email, phone or other means to build trust and request that targets send them money, digital assets or personal information.
With respect to Cumberland in particular, be advised that Cumberland trades for its own risk and account only. Cumberland does not provide investment advice, investment opportunities or custody services to any person. That means:
Cumberland will never promise you a return on an investment opportunity in exchange for money or digital assets.
Cumberland will never invest money or digital assets on your behalf.
Cumberland will never offer to hold your money or digital assets for safe keeping.
If any individual claims to be a representative of Cumberland and is asking you to send money or digital assets for any of these reasons, it is likely a scam.
