Only a few hours after our yesterday´s report, the website SafeMarkets was closed down. In this short time, however, we have thankfully received a lot of information that should make it easier for us and the investors/customers to pursue their claims.

Yesterday, we published some background information on SafeMarkets and only a few hours later the website was closed down. On the occasion of our report, we also communicated with the operator Gal Barak via WhatsApp and asked him to confirm that he is the operator of SafeMarkets. Despite convincing evidence, he denied this with a brief “no”. However, he must have regarded the closure of the website as the lesser evil.

In the interest of investors, and thanks to some insiders we received some more information on the background of this fraudulent website from some trusted insiders and are happy to share this additional information:  As we have learned from a credible source, Gal Barak’s partner in the operation of SafeMarkets is the Bulgarian Marina Andreeva. She hid behind the Panamanian trustee Orlando Eduardo Sanchez Moreno. Together with Marina, Gal operates the websites and  (still online) and handles them via company structures in the Marshall Islands, Samoa, Estonia, and the UK. The details including bank details are available to us.

The call centers (boiler rooms) for these platforms in Bulgaria, Serbia, and Georgia were also under the control of Gal Barack and his staff. We have received the phone numbers and names. An update will follow shortly with details on how to follow up the claims. Please send your request by comment or email.
