How to avoid a forex scam

Forex Trading – Is It Legitimate?

Forex (Foreign Exchange) is not a scam and certainly can be a credible and legitimate way of making money. However, whenever there are large sums of money involved, the shadier elements of society are never lagging. There are plenty of nefarious brokers that target novices, experienced traders and everyone else in between.
Forex scams are unfortunately common. At Broker Complaint Registry we have seen many forex, binary options and CFD scams emerge. Here are a couple of things to look out for whether you are an experienced trader or a complete novice.

Regulated Forex Broker?

The very first step to take to avoid becoming a victim of a Forex scam is to make sure you open an account with a regulated broker. There are many dominions that regulate Forex trading including the FCA in the UK, ASIC in Australia, and the CFTC and the NFA in the United States. Do not solely rely what is on the broker’s website. Check them out online and make sure they are regulated. It is simple to place a regulation on a website so use the resources available to you such as https://register.fca.org.uk/. Be sure to call the forex broker and find out who they are and what they do. Do not get pressured into opening an account unless you are 100% at ease.
However, merely checking to see whether the broker is regulated is not enough. There are numerous regulatory agencies such as CySEC that do not apply strict enough oversight and fail to implement harsh penalties for any brokers that violate their rules.

Guaranteed ROI

Any broker that guarantees a return on investment (ROI) is a surefire scam. For example, a “broker” may be approached to invest your money with an organization that will trade on your behalf and promise yearly or monthly returns for as long as you keep investing with them. Many of these con artists promise 40-50 % of your invested capital guaranteed PER MONTH. These “returns” are absolutely unsustainable and almost always involve other investors continuing to add money to the pot. This is called a Ponzi scheme. Remember Bernie Madoff anyone?
Forex trading is risky and while there are plenty of individuals who can consistently earn money trading, no one will say it is a guarantee.

Fund Withdrawal

If the forex broker or account manager tries to prevent you from withdrawing your funds or your return on investment, then you know that it is a forex scam. There is absolutely no reason that it should take anymore than a few business days for your money to be returned. Even some regulated brokers have refused to allow their clientele to withdraw. Take OTCapital as an example. They are regulated by ASIC, but Broker Complaint Registry has dealt with numerous individuals that have been unable to withdraw their funds.

Dating App Scam

So I've recently got a scammer through a dating app.
We matched and started chatting right away. She was weirdly too invested and sweet, but nothing like the red flags to follow.
Over a few weeks we started chatting more frequently and she'd casually drop hints that she had money. Lots of it. Red Flag 1.
My spidey senses were tingling but instead of walking away I decided to see where this would lead. I kept being aloof and not pursuing any topic related to money to see how far the scammer would go to try and bait me.
We'd often times chat for hours, about mundane things, life and so forth. Sometimes with voice, sometimes, we'd send photos to one another.
I admit that after 2 months I was considering the possibility of her just being someone really oblivious about the number 1 rule about finances. (You don't talk about your personal finances, specially to strangers.)
Sometimes she'd casually venture back into talking about money, but, as I clearly did not pursue those topics any further, she'd drop it entirely. Interestingly enough, that never kept her from switching topics.
3 Months later...
One day she randomly mentioned bitcoin and how she was trying to learn more about it. Me being someone who casually played a bit with it and have some miner friends, I got curious about the topic and indulged her. She was very clueless about how bitcoin actually works, and had no idea it had to be mined. Which was quite interesting, as she was apparently genuinely unfamiliar with anything other than it's value and basic understanding of how the speculation alone was what dictated the price.
Eventually she dropped the bombshell.
She was part of an exchange and she was making bank through it because a manager in the exchange would advise her on how to make money. CRIMSON DEATH FLAG FROM HELL
My eyebrow went up and through the roof. This was it ladies and gentleman. The long game came to a climax (or so I thought). She was about to strike.
I aloofly replied saying that sounded cool and I was happy it was working out for her. Doing my best to not let out any emotion whatsoever.
She then happily asked me if I wouldn't want to join her on the exchange and have her refer me to the guy who was managing her account.
A cocktail of happiness, sadness and anger is the best way to describe my emotions at the time.
I was happy the scammer finally came out with her fangs, I was sad because at the end of the day I have to admit I was enjoying chatting with her daily and angry because this girl whom I was chatting through text, audio and even video was clearly someone malicious doing it to take my money.
This was the first time I had seen such a long con game, and I have to say. I am genuinely impressed.
I recomposed myself, and with a wry smile I thanked her and mentioned I'd consider it maybe into future. It was my turn to play the long game now.
She was cheerful about it and casually mentioned she couldn't wait to be able to chat together about bitcoin and make money together.
I had a hard time trying not to cringe at the very end of that sentence.
Another month rolls by, and we're still casually chatting about daily life. That topic had not come up in a while, and I was at this point actually hoping she'd just bare her fangs again.
I'm a patient guy, but for the first time I felt a weird awkward and hard to explain discomfort about this all. This girl was extremely sweet and caring, and I knew deep down that was nothing but a façade. A shallow part of me actually wanted to believe her, which made me most sickened.
I kept on pushing forward, and lost track of when she first struck, but eventually she did it again.
She brought up the exchange and asked me what I thought about it.
I decided to investigate further into the matter, and casually let her tell me about it.
She introduced to this shifty guy called Makler on WeChat. Satan's used bog roll flag
I spoke to the guy faking interest and got an website address out of him.
I Google Searched the domain, lo' and behold: Screenshot
There were many other hits, but these alone were definitely the most interesting hits. I've read through it and my heart sank as I read tales of lonely men so desperate they fell for this surface level scam.
Curiosity got the best of me and I decided to take a look at the website. I had to see with my own eyes.
Screenshot
Considering all the money they were making from these poor souls, I was floored that a website this dodgy looking was actually being successful at ripping off people like this. This sad excuse of a website, a waste of bits if you will, did not even have an SSL certificate going for it. The NFA certification was a clear bait and switch for anyone willing to do the most basic of researches, and simplest understanding of how a FOREX works.
Yet here we were.
Note: I gave up on pointing out red flags at this point. Every single line after the first red flag should be considered a red flag actually.
Anyways.
I was not done. I was not letting this end here.
I was going to waste more time. This person on the other end was going to waste her time. I was not going to let this end easily.
Having a hard time not letting my complete disgust show, I said I was going to consider it later, as I had more pressing matters, but we could discuss about it later.
Without a beat, and with an angelic smile she says that's totally fine and changes topic.
I mentioned I was feeling a bit sick and tired, and said I was going to rest. I ended the video call.
Had I not, I would have laid all this effort to waste. I was not doing that. I went out for a bike ride and see if some fresh air would make the washing machine in my stomach go away.
A day went by and she messaged me "worried", asking if I was ok, and how was I feeling.
I came up with the ploy that I had caught a flu, and was resting. I'll spare you folks the details, but for a while I distanced myself a bit from it, without letting it show.
Eventually we went back into our daily tirade. As if nothing had happened. I have to give it to her, she was really good at coming up with topics to talk about, and to make matters worse, she was clearly smart and well read making talking about anything usually a pleasant time. (Except for every other minute where I'd remember this creature in front of me was playing with it's prey, me.)
Another month went by. We're 7 months in now. Today she tried again, possibly running out of patience?
I decided to end the façade. I had her confirm the website, and then shown her what I had found regarding the site.
She faked being in shock, and suggested the possibility of it all being a smear campaign. I could not help but laugh.
I asked her why was she doing such a terrible thing.
She started to cry.
A tear ran down my cheek.
I realized I let this person into my life thinking nothing of it, and before I knew, I somehow deep down felt bad for this person.
7 months, where I let this person into my day to day. We'd chat about anything and everything. Almost like an actual relationship between friends. Even tho I knew from the very beginning she meant to harm me, and that nothing of this was real, this hit me like a truck.
I disconnected. Turned off my phone, left it to charge and pulled my notebook, where I'm currently typing this.
I know how to proceed from here. This sadness will wear off.
But what have we humans became?

If only we had a regulated market...

For those of you who pine for the government's approval for you to transact with other adults, here's an example of why regulated markets are shit:
https://www.nfa.futures.org/rulebook/rules.aspx?RuleID=SECTION%2011&Section=7
That is the link provided by Interactive Brokers to explain why they are asking if you are someone who, as apparently defined under federal law, "regularly enters into, makes a market in or holds itself out as a dealer in forex or retail commodity transactions."
The link goes to the website for a government agency I have never heard of, created by Congress in 1974, or 36 years B.P.D. (Before Pizza Day).
This agency I've never heard of requires that forex market makers maintain a minimum of $20 million in reserve capital and follow all sorts of intricate rules I don't even have the energy to scan at this moment.
Now, look, I get that a lot of capital sloshes around in financial markets. But if you want to talk about barriers to entry, $20 mil is pretty damn steep. Not to mention the lawyers, lobbyists, and flacks you have to pay to survive all the rules that are keeping you so safe. "Startup" is essentially a laughable concept in this context.
High barriers to entry protect established companies from competition, increasing costs and stifling innovation.
If you ask me, I will gladly take -- in a brand, spanking new, rapidly innovating industry -- the occasional ETH/USD flash crash, DAO hack, or Bitfinexed's "There's a Nightmare In My Closet" blog posts any day over a $20 million ante to sit down at the table.
It should definitely be illegal for Kraken to have a trading engine that shitty, though.

The Importance Of Choosing The Right Forex Broker And How to Do It

The Importance Of Choosing The Right Forex Broker And How to Do It
One of the most common ways of getting started with Forex trading is through a Forex broker. When you are a beginner Forex trader you are most likely to opt for the same alternative, but the mistake that most rookie traders make is choosing the wrong broker. If your first step does not go right then you can merely depend on luck and in a competitive field like the Forex market, being lucky is very rare. The best alternative is to have the right information and also use it well.
If you are thinking that how a Forex broker can be so important, here it is. The broker you choose will be the one that will be keeping your invested money in the account. Apart from this, a good broker will also be providing you their expertise about the changes happening in the market. This expertise comes with a fee but it is a small amount to pay for the information that can help you not just earn profits but also convert a loss into no loss.

Elite Trading Strategist
Choosing The Perfect Broker
A good broker will be transparent regarding his fees, commissions, etc. but mostly it is not the case. If you have not done your research on a broker, well you might have to face some unwelcome surprises. So you do not have to face all these unpleasantness, here is a guide to choose the right broker.

Hafizzat Rusli trading masterclass

1. Figure Yourself Out As An Investor

Different brokers offer different kinds of services and you will have to figure which kind of service will suit you the most. Whether you are going to invest big or small, how often you would like to invest, these are the things that can help make a final choice but that is not it. Choosing the right broker takes a lot more than this.

2. Figuring Your Affordability

The brokerage companies charge you a transaction fee. If you are a beginner and invested a small amount just to try your luck or to gain initial experience. Turns out you earned the profit, but what if the brokerage fee is 2 times more than what you earned. This will be the kind of shock that will leave you feeling humiliated for not choosing wisely. As a beginner choose the broker with less fee but also make sure if the account being provided is secure. The next point is about all that.

3. Always Choose A Regulated Broker Firm

A regulated is important to choose because that will automatically take care of the various security issues. If you are choosing a broker in the United States of America, he will be regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the National Futures Association (NFA). Similar organizations are present in France, Germany, United Kingdom, Austria, Canada, and Switzerland. The presence of regulating organizations does not mean that all the brokers are regulated so pick wisely. If you want to be sure if your broker is actually registered under the NFA, you can visit the website of NFA and cross-check to be sure and safe.

4. Be Thoroughly Informed About The Terms And Conditions Of The Brokerage Firm

The rules and regulations of a brokerage firm can be tricky to understand at times. If you do not take your time to understand these terms well and choose the broker just like that, there will be times when you will want to change the past but will not be able to. For example, some brokerage firms do not allow you to withdraw your investment or trade it instantly. In situations like these, you will be at a major loss. Although such terms also come with benefits, but that depends on the kind of investor you are.
With some brokers, the rules are as such that closing your account will be a tedious task. The broker does not want to lose you as a client and he/she can try various things for this. So, if you are willing to withdraw back you might have to waste a week's time or more with unnecessary things like filling lengthy forms, speak to the company's representative, take surveys, etc.

5. Find Out If You Will Get 24/6 coverage

24/6 means that you can consult your firm's customer service anytime between Sunday afternoon and Friday afternoon. Before you finally invest, put your broker through a small test. Give a call and see how quick and relevant are the responses from the broker's end.
Apart from choosing the right broker, you will also need to have a mentor to learn more about currency analysis and other factors responsible for Forex trading. You can always look up for a trading course online but if you want the best then Ha is your answer. to know more about his Forex trading course click here.
