Investing in the stock market has become quite popular now. Many people are now actively taking part in trading. From young students to homemakers, people are now actively engaging in trading to generate a passive source of income. But it is important to note that, as much as it is beneficial, it also involves a lot of risks. There are times when the market goes down and the money is lost. Apart from that, there have also been various scammers who work as brokers. Even celebrities have lost their money while getting trapped in these scams. Now, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has also expressed himself on social media about the scams of the stock market.
Virender Sehwag has always been in the limelight for his hilarious tweets and controversial opinions. Recently, the former Indian cricketer hit the spotlight while replying to X channel account holder @ViaWealthy. He commented on a tweet posted by the account and called them out for being fraudulent and scamming people with their money.
@ViaWealthy, which is a SEBI-registered wealthy advisory firm, posted, “20 hazaar se dar nai lagtaa saab. T shirts se lagta hai. A 2008 victim.” In response to this tweet, Virender Sehwag called them out and wrote, “Tumhaare jaise bhagode choron se lagta hai, who for a commission buy pump and dump shares in clients account with malafide intentions in a proper understanding with the promoter. You have scammed many innocents, and your game is over.”
After Virender Sehwag’s comment, many people on the microblogging platform had a series of reactions. Currently, the post has been deleted by the account.
But this was not the only time that the former star cricketer had called out the wealth-advising company on social media. Earlier in February 2022, he tweeted about Pritam Deuskar, owner of Wealthy Via, and called him a fraud. He also wrote that he is part of a syndicated network, has duped several innocent retail investors, and has even stopped answering investor calls. He even mentioned that if the money is not returned to the investors, legal action will be taken against him.
