Past related to fraud
Financial and cryptocurrency market experts recommend investors to research everything about the company and owners before making any investment. In the case of Braiscompany, it was founded by Antonio Inacio da Silva Neto and his wife, Fabricia Farias Campos (known as Fabricia Ais), in May 2018, according to the Federal Revenue Service.
Before becoming entrepreneurs, however, the two were leaders of the D9 Club de Empreendedores, a notorious pyramid scheme that used Bitcoin as a front to harm victims and left thousands in Brazil in danger.
By the end of 2020, the two had responded to at least 20 lawsuits related to the case. Some of the actions cited Danilo Vunjão Santana Gouveia (known as Danilo Dubaiano), creator of D9 who fled to Dubai after the case.
In 2019, Rede Globo’s Fantástico program showcased how Dubaians live a life of luxury in the UAE.
In July 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission (CVM) opened an administrative proceeding (PA) to investigate possible irregularities at Braiscompany. Since there were indications of a crime against the popular economy in the business, and the regulator does not deal with this type of infraction, the autarchy has forwarded the case to the Public Prosecutor of Paraíba.
That year, the MP-Procon, consumer protection body of the Public Prosecution of Paraíba (MPPB), began investigating the company. The person who dealt with the case was the prosecutor Socrates da Costa Agra.
At the report, the MPPB said it received a request in 2020 from an anonymous person who wanted to invest in the company and who officiated at municipal and state Procon bodies and found there were no complaints from harmed consumers. Thus, the trial was filed “because it is not a consultative body that guarantees or not the suitability of the company and because there is no damage to the consumer”.
“Obviously the filing does not prevent the launch of new procedures at the competent investigation, in the event that news or information emerges on damage to consumers”, he added.
