How then do we explain CNC Intelligence Inc scam reviews that can be found online?

Let’s move forward to examine CNC Intelligence’s website, CNCIntel.com, and another domain they own: CNCIntelligence.com.

CNCIntel Reviews

During our investigation, we have discovered several domains and websites that are impersonating CNC Intelligence’s website, CNCIntel.com.

We will not mention these websites here since we do not want to promote scams, however it should be noted that the only legitimate CNC Intelligence Inc domains names:

  • CNCIntel.com
  • CNCIntelligence.com (redirects to CNCIntel.com)
  • CNCIntell.com (redirects to CNCIntel.com)

To verify that the domains are legitimate, simply hover or tap on the Secured by Sectigo seal at the bottom of the page. If the website you’re on is legitimate, then Sectigo will say: “Secure And Authentic Website.”

On the contrary, if you find yourself on one of the fake CNC Intelligence websites, the Sectigo verification will tell you “IdAuthority™ Credentials are NOT available for this site.”

You can also tap on the Authorize.Net seal, which is supposed to say: “cncintel.com is a verified Authorize.Net merchant.”

CNCIntel.com - Certifications & Verification

So some of the CNCIntel scam reviews may have written by victims who have been scammed by CNC Intelligence impersonators.

CNC Intelligence’s main domain, CNCIntel.com, has been registered on June 23, 2020 for 7 years on CloudFlare, Inc.

So first of all the domain was not registered for just one year as most scam websites are, but also it was registered more than 2 years ago, meaning it has been around long enough for us to be able to find sufficient reviews online to help us determine if CNC Intelligence is legit or not.

According to SimilarWeb.com, CNCIntel.com is a highly popular website ranked 702,213 globallly and 125,699 in the United States.

With more than 71,000 visits in October 2022, this certainly looks like a trustworthy website.

Next we take a look at some CNCIntel reviews.

On SiteJabber.com, CNC Intelligence ranks 2nd among Cyber Security sites. (#1 in case you’re curious is SSL Certificate at sslcertificate.com & ssls.com.)

They have claimed their business profile and they currently have 4.72 stars out of 5 based on 103 reviews, indicating that most of their clients are generally satisfied with their service.

Consumers satisfied with CNC Intelligence often mention:

  • good info
  • intelligence work
  • small amount

In the last 12 months, 93.3% of their reviews were positive, which is excellent in our opinion.

The most helpful review was posted on October 6, 2021 by a person who “was just looking on the internet for a company to assist with Moonpay.” He writes: “I gave you 5 stars because you were prompt to get back to me and you are trying to help me and nobody else is trying to help me.”

Another reviewer wrote:

You guys are great we are able to communicate initially when you signed up i was given misinformation how the process work I was misgiuded a bit about the time frames. I didnt know I had any involved i thought I could sit back and CNC would handle everything. For a weeks I was checking everything was correct.

And here’s another review:

In the beginning it was difficult but it unfolded in the right direction. I feel that I am with the right company and you guys have amazing reports and I am happy so far thank you CNC. Other companies would send me testimonials but I had no way of checking this but with you guys it was clear.

There are many more helpful reviews, but here’s one last review from SiteJabber:

My wife and I are very impressed that CNC was able to track down the scammers and find them half-way across the world. We are currently takikng our case to court with the local lawyer provided by CNC.

Next, we look at TrustPilot.com where they are also a verified company and they have a 4 out of 5 stars rating based on 52 reviews. They reply to negative reviews in less than 2 days.

Let’s take a look at a couple of relevant reviews:

One person from the US wrote on November 15, 2022:

Take care of yourself from those online forex scams, I was deceived and Cncintel really helped me. You will get great support and advice for the future… Thank you!

Someone else from the United States wrote on October 9, 2022 wrote:

Very professional and understanding. Made me feel very comfortable and safe throughout the process. Highly recommended.

One last example from TrustPilot.com: (it goes on and on!)

A very professional company that you can trust. I found them very helpful and understanding. At first, I was very doubtful about the whole thing after being scammed, but Avi put my mind at ease and did their best. I would definitely recommend cncintel.

Finally, on ScamAdviser.com CNCIntel.com has a 65% Trust Score and 4.5 out of 5 rating based on 126 reviews, including a review that was posted on ScamAdviser itself:

I am very thankful to the CNC team for helping me, they did the investigation, found the guys behind the trading platform, then their lawyer was able to negotiate a settlement for me.

What causes their Trust Score to be lower than 100%?

First of all, it’s because “The owner of the website is using a service to hide their identity on WHOIS.” However, this is a non-issue since the identity of the owners behind the site is revealed in plenty of places on CNCIntel.com as can be seen above and in links we have posted throughout this article.

Secondly, “According to Tranco this site has a low Alexa rank.” However, Alexa has been discontinued on May 1, 2022. On SimilerWeb, which is arguably the new Alexa, they are ranked rather high as we’ve seen above, especially in the United States.

Thirdly, “This website has been reported selling fake products,” this is a clear falsehood since we have been able to verify that CNC Intelligence provides a real recovery service, however we are well aware that many companies in this industry are recovery scams.

Finally, “This website has been reported as a possible scam on Scamadviser.”

Next, we’re going to look into some of these “CNC Intelligence Scam Reviews.”

CNCIntel Scam Reviews

So first of all, there are some blogs that claim that CNC Intelligence is a scam. However, these reviews are obviously written by marketers with a specific agenda who neither care about the trustfulness of their write ups nor have any experience with the company.

For example, there’s a review that claims CNCIntel is a scam, but at the same time they give them a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 based on 244 reviews that are clearly fake since they all rate CNC Intelligence consistently 4 or 5 stars for all parameters (Support, Platform, Spread, Trading Instrument), while some of these parameters (Platform, Spread, Trading Instrument) are not even applicable in the case of CNC Intelligence, but seem to be relevant to online Forex trading platforms.

Finally, a very minor amount of negative reviews on legitimate sites such as SiteJabber and TrustPilot is always expected and normal. Every company has them, even the most trustworthy and legitimate companies.

Why? For one thing, this is a complex business and efforts may sometimes to recover money may rarely fail, which would obviously be extremely disappointing for the client.

But more than that, a company that fights against scammers is all the more likely to have fake negative reviews posted by the same scammers CNC Intelligence fights against in their effort to discredit the company.

CNC Intelligence Review Bottom Line: Is CNCIntel Legit?

To summarize this CNC Intelligence Review, we have reached the conclusion that CNC Intelligence Inc. and CNCIntel.com are a fully legitimate and trustworthy asset recovery and intelligence service provider.

Not only do they have a great number of positive reviews and a relatively small amount of negative reviews, but we have been able to verify that they’re a real, registered company with a real location and real, certified and qualified people working for them.

If you have a significant amount of money ($3,000+) to a scam, then you should definitely contact them to at least take advantage of their complimentary consultations to find out if they are able help you. You got nothing to lose…
