Around the globe there are plenty of fraudulent investment scams offered to investors (for example the "ponzi scheme", "pump and dump", and many others). This also occurs in Indonesia, or, related to Indonesia. Perpetrators can be Indonesian or foreign.

Criminals offer victims a lucrative investment opportunity in Indonesia, promising big profits. However, investors will never see their money again.
