CFTC Consumer Advisory: Forex Fraud
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Unsafe Conditions

  • Promise profits, but they don't deliver — their customers lose money instead!
  • Claim most customers make money, when in fact most lose.
  • Claim to be trading customers' funds, when in fact they are stealing them.
  • Give you phony success stories from made-up customers.
  • Create fake account statements showing false trading profits.
  • Claim that they have been in business for years, when in fact it is often only months.
  • Claim to be solid and stable firms, until they disappear and leave customers' calls unanswered.
