JAKARTADAILY.ID - Chairman of the OJK's Investment Task Force (SWI) Tongam Lumban Tobing said his team has banned seven business activities without permits, duplicating parties, or those operating on behalf of licensed entities.
However, the chairman reminded the public to remain vigilant against fraudulent investment offers online.
"The public is also advised to be careful of investment offers through Telegram," Tongam said in his official statement a few days ago.
SWI let go of one business, namely Luminesia.com because it has proven that its businesses are not illegal investment activities.
Furthermore, SWI urges the public to understand the following bits of advice before making an investment:
1. Ensure that the party offering the investment has a permit from the competent authority in accordance with the business activities being carried out.
2. Ensure that the party offering investment products has a license to provide investment products or is registered as a marketing partner.
3. Ensure that the company includes the logo of a government agency or institution on its website or social media.
