Always do research before you invest in or give payment details to any project, person or company. Never start out with the assumption that the given platform is trustworthy. Instead, do some googling. It's worth looking at both the data of the platform (how long they have been around, do they reveal the team behind it, do they offer realistic profits, etc.) and reviews around the internet. If you have any doubt or found any indication that the platform might be a scam, it's better to avoid. Forex Peace Army has a good collection of scam operations, you can look around on there if you are not sure.
A very important thing to keep in mind is, if something sounds too good to be true, it's probably not true.
Also, people who claim they can help recover your lost bitcoins and such are most often scammers, too.

If someone promises to increase your money quickly without a risk this is usually a scam because you don't need 3rd party investments if you find such a great opportunity. You would get rich with your own money instead.

I totally agree. It's best to rely on your own skills and knowledge, trusting other people with your money is dangerous, and a lot of people use schemes like this to scam people. If someone could indeed guarantee large profits, they wouldn't need other people to pay them to trade.

I watched a lot of videos on YouTube on this topic in one of the videos this topic was well explained, it said. That fraudulent projects/sites have always existed and will always exist, and there will always be people who will say that I invested in it and made a lot of money (this is not a call to invest in such projects!) We simply will never be these people! As for me, only the creators of this project earn on fraudulent projects. In order not to fall into the trap of their promises, you need to analyze the documents of the company well and read all the user agreements that the company has, trying to find the place where it is registered. Most often, as I noticed, scammers promise 300% of income per year, they write in the user agreement that they provide consulting/educational services and can change the user agreement at any time and without warning. They also write that they are not responsible and most often they are based in Cyprus or Thailand, sometimes in Tajikistan...
