Online Scams

Forex Scams

The forex market (FX) is the world’s largest trading market. Nearly $5 trillion are traded daily. The market opens 24 hours a day. When trading closes in New York it starts again in Tokyo and Hong Kong. Since there are constant price fluctuations, this market can make institutions, companies and individuals a lot of money.

Forex fraud is a growing problem and there is no guaranteed way to avoid it. People under 25 are falling in droves due to the lavish payouts promised. Until recently, older people (those over 50 and in retirement) were considered to be the most vulnerable target. All that, is apparently a trend in the past. Those who currently make up the over 55 age group category have grown somewhat immune to the tricks of the online scammers, the young adult category has become the preferred target now.


Binary Option Scams​

Scams are extremely common in the field of binary options. When new financial instruments or forms of trading emerge, a whole range of businesses tend to get involved and some of those product providers are more trustworthy than others. This is certainly true of binary options, these platforms tend to operate under the radar.

A binary option is a type of options contract where the payout depends entirely on the outcome of a yes/no proposition, typically related to the price of a particular asset such as a stock or a commodity. With binary options you don’t actually buy stock or commodities you just bet on its price within a certain time period. Some binary options are listed on registered exchanges or traded on a designated contract market and are subject to oversight by U.S. regulators such as the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), however a large part of the binary options market operates through websites that don’t comply with U.S. regulations or any Financial Regulatory Authorities.
