"Their "about" page claims they've been around since 2014, but then contradicts it's self further down the page stating they were founded in 2016. According the the WHOIS data the domain was created on 10 OCT 2019."


"The Terms of Service page is plagiarized from" Exmo.


"According to user Mosperian ovextrade.com requires a deposit of 0.015 BTC to make a withdrawal of funds that are already in your account. He was directed there by loan scammer." "It is either the same guy behind all of them or someone is selling them the script/source of the website so other people can scam."


"This template is from of these websites where they give you "free coins" in a giveaway but... you obviously need to deposit to withdrawal the coins. I will find a post made on the Portuguese board where the domain is different (other website) but it is literally an exact clone of this site."


"Its a SCAM and i got burned very bad.I found a username and password in pastebin.com and entered them and i saw there over 5 BTC.And then i started chating with the support thinking it was a real support.I paid 0.02 BTC to start withdrawing,then 0.035 some insurance and at the end he/they wanted me to deposit 0.05 for Premium account.And i got confused but it was ro late.This is why you must double check sites where there is no security(just the telegram security code).Anyway i searched and found the number of the company,but it is one with expired day.Company Number was OC393265 which is for LA CLOTHING SOLUTIONS (MIDLANDS) LLP."


"He will send you the money on ovextrade.com and require you to deposit .015 btc in order to withdraw from the shady looking exchange to an external wallet. Sent me 1.5 btc when I really only wanted .1 and it's locked on this site. I doubt the BTC actually exist it's probably just a displayed number. He also makes you send a long video reading off a bunch of stuff. It's very shady. I wouldn't suggest anyone do it. I was just desperate because localbitcoins put me in a bad situation."


"You don't give any loan[. Y]ou will said you will send to tradeberry.org and this site is a hack so stop wasting people time[. Y]ou don't have any BTC."


"He definitely controls the fake exchange ovextrade.com that hell "send" the funds to. I put apostrophes because the wallets displayed show no transactons on the blockchain so the btc really is just a displayed number on the site and no transaction actually takes place."


"I've compiled a lot of evidence including my conversations with him and I'll be persuing charges of fraud and possibly securities fraud against him and anyone who may be involved in the scammy site."


"Probably you won't find it. [T]here is a [supposed] statistic 10% of the people using the internet have been scammed at least once. Only 2% of the scams are found and solved; unfortunately."

Scammers were setting up multiple fraudulent platforms such as OvexTrade, then offering loans on the BitcoinTalk forum. Participants reported that the loan application process included recording videos of themselves for a KYC validation. Once a loan applicant was approved, they would be informed that their bitcoin was sent to them on the OvexTrade platform. They could then pay the cheap withdrawal fee of 0.015 BTC if they wanted an on-chain withdrawal. Of course, no bitcoin were actually ever given to them. Instead, the videos were used to set up trading accounts or perform fraud in their likeness, and the 0.015 BTC fee was never recoverable. While one user reported wanting to pursue legal actions, there is no indication that any funds were ever recovered.


From the standpoint of an end user, care must be taken for any platform you are looking to sign up with. Always check with multiple trusted sources to ensure that a platform is trustworthy, and never leave funds on the exchange. Be especially suspicious if you are offered any sort of money in exchange for making an upfront payment, regardless of what the money is for.


The primary defense for regulators would be ensuring that all trading platforms are registered and making that process as easy as possible, so that trading platforms will obtain registration. In order to ensure safe trading platforms, operators need to be properly trained in security, a proper multi-signature wallet needs to be used, and funds must be verified to be fully backed on a periodic basis.
