Scanty Investment Review: Low effort investment fraud
Scanty Investment lists executive information on its website, however the names and images provided are bogus.
The photo provided for Scanty Investment’s CEO Russel Baker is actually Alexander Oleg Zhirkov.
Up until recently, Zhirkov’s image was being used to promote binary options schemes.
Similarly, the rest of Scanty Investment’s “professional team” are either stock photos or stolen identities.
Scanty Investment provide a random residential address in Texas as their corporate office.
Scanty Investment’s website domain (“scantyinvestment.com”), was privately registered through a Russian registrar on May 13th, 2019.
It’s a safe bet whoever is actually running Scanty Investment is of Russian origin or has ties to Russia. Neighboring Ukraine is another possibility.
As always, if an MLM company is not openly upfront about who is running or owns it, think long and hard about joining and/or handing over any money.

Nothing about Scanty Investment is remotely legitimate.
The company’s website is plastered with fraudulent information, from its executives to the random residential Texas address.
Scanty Investment even goes so far as to claim it’s
registered under the US security and exchange commission (SEC).
A two second search of the SEC’s Edgar database confirms this to be another lie.
The bottom line is that if the scammers behind Scanty Investment were able to legitimately 125% every 21 days, they’d be doing it and keeping it to themselves.
Instead you have an investment fraud ruse, put together with minimal effort.
What little Scanty Investment might pay out will be recycled funds, i.e. it’s a Ponzi scheme.
Given the minimal effort to put the scheme together, the collapse threshold is likely set high.
Scanty Investment is basically a snatch and grab. Don’t expect it to be around in a few months.
