Welcome to our Ouknm Review in which we investigate the website currently found at ouknm.com.
On February 9, 2023 one of our partners received the following complaint by a person who claims losing more than $1400:
I initially deposited $1200 for trading crypto on the Ouknm platform. After several trades, I made a profit of $209.80.
When I attempted to withdraw all of my funds into my bank account, the funds were never credited. The Ouknm wallet also showed that the funds had been debited.
Despite multiple attempts to contact the customer service, they have not responded to my complaint.
Is Ouknm legit or is it a SCAM?
The domain ouknm.com was registered through Gname.com Pte. Ltd. on August 8, 2020 for 3 years. It was recently updated, on November 11, 2022.
It is protected by Cloudflare and seems to be owned by an entity in Hong Kong, China.
It is quite popular with a global rank of 351,249 and 10,268 in Indonesia. In January 2023 it received more than 100,000 visitors, according to SimilarWeb, mostly from Indonesia and United Arab Emirates.
Its Semrush Authority Score is 2% and it has almost 700 backlinks, but none of them from any legitimate websites.
Currently, ouknm.com is not working and we are only able to access the subdomain net.ouknm.com.
We are able to see the meta description of ouknm.com:

And indeed not much information can be found on that page. It seems to be designed for mobile only and looks strange on a desktop computer.
There’s also no contact information.
Definitely looks like a scam to us.
And we were able to find some additional complaints about them.
They claim that their crypto coin wallets have been frozen multiple times and they were asked to make additional deposits to secure their accounts.
Some users have reported that a Korean girl named Park Weiwei, Wendy, or with an undisclosed name introduced them to the website.
The users are also reporting that their accounts have been temporarily frozen due to alleged anti-money laundering checks, and they were asked to pay a verification fee of 50% of their account assets to unfreeze their accounts. However, the accounts have not been released even after the fee was paid.
And on complaintsboard.com we learn that A customer has reported that they were directed to the Ouknm website by someone they met on Instagram and were encouraged to make multiple deposits of around 30,000 USD in total.
After attempting to withdraw the money, the customer received an email stating that their account was temporarily frozen due to suspected money laundering and they would need to pay an additional 30,107 USDT to unfreeze the account.
The customer claims they have been unable to receive assistance from the Ouknm customer service.
Several other customers have made similar complaints and have requested to be added to a group.
