MyChargeBack in the News

We keep making news in South Africa!

Michael B. Cohen, MyChargeBack’s Vice President of Global Operations, was quoted extensively in an article that appeared on a major South African news site that explored the growing allure of fraudulent forex websites in that country.
“Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, the number of enquiries received by MyChargeBack from investment scam victims in SA has risen by 20% to 25% on a monthly basis. It now averages 1 000 per month. The peak was in April when we received over 1 300 enquiries. To put this into context, we averaged 500 enquiries per month in the 12 months before COVID. We believe that this increase is due to the fact that the pandemic has forced large numbers of people to remain at home, reduced or eliminated their incomes and, thus, encouraged them to seek what seemed like simple and quick ways to make money,” explains Cohen.
