Looks dodgy at first glance.


  • They claim to be in business since 2004. Their domain was registered in 2004 but has never been used until 2021.
  • All "news" relating to their business is from February or March 2021, looks rehashed and from dubious sources.
  • No Japanese phone number.
  • Their office is just rental space, their address is incomplete (see link below):

Can you tell us more about your dealings with "Eten Group"?

The phone number listed at the top of their page is Australian. Call it and see what it leads to.

That's not a complete address. That building is mostly residential it seems. Looks pretty nice.
But not if you're a cat person. No cats allowed. But you can have up to two small dogs.

Hi guys , I was the same as all of you thinking of buying shares in Spacex Starlink, I wound up being in contact with the Eten group, boy were they keen to get hold of my money.
They told me the money would go through a company in Hong Kong, a subsidiary company of theirs called Wong Chun Holdings limited , it was registered in October 20/20 , with no history of trading etc. My wife said that is a scam, my bank manager it is a scam, I think it is scam so it must be a scam.
apart from that the web site is very amateurish , definitely a barge pole job. Check out Spacex own site for the Starlink IPO.

Thanks for the update, @ijwilkins, I concur with your wife. :)

Flagged as "scam".

Thank you, this makes me feel a lot better. How do I contact them to entrust them with my money?

I find it more bizarre that "Eten Group" doesn't list any office locations (except for the "Tokyo office" which is an office rental space), no names, no staff intros, zilch, except for an Australian phone number. I find it even more bizarre that a financial company that claims to be in business since 2004 has an internet presence commencing in 2021: no references, no third-party resources, no listings, just a couple of mentions on two or three dubious websites, all from February and March 2021.

I am glad you have a comfortable account there, however, nothing I see inspires confidence (but hey, @mdchachi has his savings ready 👆:LOL:).
