    • Donna Miller says:

      Hi watchdog I was ripped off 220K by FM trader doing 60sec trades. I had no idea that was so risky as for 3 months we only won. Then I deposited 100K more and lost it all in 5 mins. Is there anyway I can get any back?
      Cheers Donna

          Option500 stole over $10,000 from my credit card without my authorisation and worse still Barclaycard Visa allowed it without even contacting me to check its validity. Not only that but it put me over my card limit and still Barclaycard Visa did nothing. I complained. Then because Option500 said I authorised it and showed fraudulent emails, that they had doctored, Barclaycard Visa expect me to pay.
          So do not trust Option500 for anything, not even $ or £250 as they will manipulate and use your email, basically lie. and sadly, do not trust Barclaycard Visa either as they do not give a damn about you, their customer, they actively encourage fraud.
          BEWARE Don’t get caught by Option500.

      • Richard Parker says:

        60 sec trade?

    • Donald Schulz says:

      Omega Options is a scam. They fail to honor their fiduciary responsibilities to their clients and refuse to comply with withdrawal requests even when all conditions have been fully complied with. It is clear that they (Mr. Johnathan Hillsen, Corporate Senior Vice President at Omega Options and others) have no intent of returning
      any of your investment. I have lost over $50K of retirement money with them

      • SC says:

        I am also trying to withdraw my investment with them. They told me to send them my bank information for the wire transfer, as it is their method of sending money to clients. I am awaiting the wire transfer, and will see if these guys are true to their words.

      • Richard Parker says:

        Omega Options are big scam , I was scam for 12.500 EUR and I fund the way to get part of my loss .

    • Jon says:

      I signed up to trend-xpert which is now defunct but required me to sign up with a number of brokers to use their system (webinars and live trading).

      All was going ok until trend-xpert closed and changed to optionbot 3.

      I decided to withdraw from the brokers and have been trying to get my money back from safe-option, askoption and binarytilt (all recommended by trend-xpert).

      I have been unsuccessful in gettingy withdrawal requests honoured, they usually are cancelled or ignored, dispute numerous email and phone calls.

      I would describe all these brokers as scam and thieves.

      Please add the to you scam list so other people have some warning before losing money on these dishonest brokers.

      I have not lost a lot of money as I only invested the minimum and did not accept bonuses. But to me the money is not the issue (that was my fault) but cannot condone the dishonesty.

      • WatchDog says:

        We’d love to help you get your money back. Please email us at BinaryOptionsWatchdog@gmail.com

      • SC says:

        Hi. I couldn’t agree with you more. All binary options are scam. There is no legit or honest brokers out there. I say this because I have lost all of my hard earned money, actually i have not lost it, but rather, these scammers stole my money. They manage to steal over 200K from me. The best thing for you to do, is not to invest any more money with any one of them, because if you do, you are just supporting their illegal business of ripping off people.

        The only legit broker out there is Nadex.

        Also I suggest you file a complaint with the FBI, SEC and CTFC. I just read an article about the FBI are now getting into to cracking down on this binary brokers, and they urge people that’s been scam to come forward.

      • Dave says:

        Hi Jon
        Sorry to hear of your losses and subsequent battle.
        It might be worth everyone complaining through the Financial Ombudsman and put them under some pressure to deal with these fraudulent companies as currently they appear to not be bothered about these acts of fraud. Thus putting them under pressure then maybe the people who are supposed to act against these lying companies/organisations will start taking fraud seriously.

        and trend-xpert is scam too

    • Gella says:

      Hello Watchdog,
      My broker is not on your list. It is Ivory Options. I deposited £5000 in the company and after a few trades I managed to make almost £2000 on top of my initial investment. I was left high and dry without support, even after telling them that whatever money I make, I would like my investment back. I have since been ‘gambling’ as I have no idea what I am doing and have lost over £1500. However, I have £6400 now left in the system and they are refusing to let me withdraw it as they said that I signed a form that stated that I had to reach a certain turnover. I am a person who does not delete emails and I cannot find any email/document on my system that says that I have signed a document of the sort. In trying to get them to supply it for me, they have been reluctant to do so, stating that I have signed a document and my money cannot be released. I no longer want to trade with these people and want my money back but they are holding my money to ransom. Can you help me get my money back? I don’t want to trade in binary options anymore and that should be my right. They have no right to withhold my money. Please help me.

    • Grace Kelly says:

      Titan Trade is the biggest scammer of all scams. Does anyone know who the owner of Titan trade is? I believe he is from Isreal. Does anyone know the Times of Isreals Investigative reporter’s email?? She is called Simona Weinglass. I have a big scaming story to tell about Titan trade

      • Dana says:

        Yes, I know who is the owner, but would prefer to share it via private message. He is from Israel, and he also owns PWRtrade (also a huge scam).

    • Steve L says:

      Hi watchdog, I deposited $250aus with chasecapital I have requested for that to be refunded, they are asking for credit card details & and many More I’d , is this legit & normal protocol , love your tenacity hunting these ruthless no concience fuckers down & down there going one by one, keep up your great work watchdog.

      • WatchDog says:

        All brokers require that you identify yourself before being able to withdraw. As long as they don’t ask you for more money, do what they ask and let me know if you have any problems.

      Hello,
      Ivory options and secured options are grand scammers. Methodical thieves. You’ll lose every cent. And they have no registration with any financial regulator anywhere. Offices based in Bulgaria. No regulator. They’ll steal your money. Please avoid. I fell prey.

      On February 28th 2017 I requested a withdrawal from my HW Markets trading account. This request has been ignored along with emails and live chat regarding my withdrawal. On March 27th I sent HW Markets an email requesting my account to be CLOSED. I also stated that if there was any trading on my account after this date, it would be deemed fraudulent. I haven’t received response from HW Markets and they are still trading on my account. Can someone advise me on how to list HW Markets on the Blacklist site, please.

First you can contact us and provide us with more information on Lbinary, you can also share it publicly under this post. If your complaint is legitimate we will add Lbinary to our list of scams.

    Hi Watchdog,

    Please I want to know if quicksystemcash.com/ is a sca before I invest my money with them. Please your kind and urgent info will be highly apreciated

  4. Tony Bianchi says:

    Hello Watchdog and Subscribers, I just thought I would list some more so-called Binary/Moneymaking systems to probably stay away from. Here are the latest product names to take note of: #1. 3 Week Millionaire.com, #2. Crisis Killer.com, and #3. Vibrant Money Sysytem.com.

    Have you ever asked yourself, Who the hell thinks up these ridiculous names for these scam products??? Obviously, some wannabe cheesy marketing idiot who failed miserably in Marketing 101!!!!

    Bye for Now,

    Tony Bianchi

  5. Willy says:

    Sensational work you guys are doing. Keep up the good fight as these scams are really hurting people. True, they should never have signed up, but who hasn’t been scammed in some way in their life?

  6. Jay says:

    You’re doing a remarkable job Watchdog and the information you share is much needed. I cannot begin to imagine how many people you must have helped avoid many of the binary options scams that are out there. Keep at it!

  7. Martins says:

    Please watchdog kindly send me where I can be getting strategy for trading and if you know who can trained me I will be glad and I will pay for it. I send you mail, kindly reply.

  8. Caitlin says:

    These lists of scams to avoid are great! So helpful to be able to reference. I also think it’s great that you are able to help traders with disputes and claims now.

    “50K MISSION SYSTEM”

  16. WatchDog says:

    This 50K Mission is a scam, it’s been exposed on a few websites, here is one review indicating that it’s another binary options scam: binaryoptionschannel.com/the-50k-mission-is-a-scam/ As for Banc De Options, we’ve seen some negative reviews on them. We’ve yet to receive enough complaints on BinaryoptionsWatchDog.com but we have a reason to believe that they might be a fraud or highly misleading. By the way, we just reviewed Mega Profix, look out for this scam.. They might spam you via email with this offer, we’re hoping that the new warning we posted will deter people from joining them. As for FX Childs Play Signals, we honestly never heard of them and based on research we can’t really conclude much but we would love to get some feedback if anyone tried or is currently using this service.

In the case of Meta Bot (non Person Sir Roger Thorne). I used the Meta Bot and had results 50+ losses and 40+ wins…I’d like to know if the Binary Book platform is the scam. Thank in advance for any enlightenment.

  24. Ron says:

    Thank you for exposing all the binary options scams WatchDog!!

  25. WatchDog says:

    Hi Rowen, Monaco Millionaire is a scam, we reviewed it just now: http://www.binaryoptionswatchdog.com/the-monaco-millionaire-scam/

  26. Rowen says:

    Good day,

    Hi Watchdog,i would like to inquire from you regarding these websites and thiese particular softwares that are now being endoresd and being posted online and its getting viral with some proofs that it claims to be the money making software and also just in an hour it can suck up to $3.025.73dollars in just an hour and kindly provide me and other subscribers the information regarding these software: (1) Trend trader by trendtraderApp.co (2) ProfessorAndersen.com this one claims to suck in $373.00 dollars in just an hour and then thousands then in less than 90 days already in over a million dollars. (3) Millionaire Dream, this one also claims to be profiting ihundreds of dollars in just 60 seconds then thousands in just an hour then you’ll be earning a million dollars in 3 months time, so i think i have already mentioned these 3 websites and i hope you can gice me some information regarding this viral softwares which are now being posted over the internet.

    Yours truly
    Rowen

    • WatchDog says:

      Hi Rowen, the 3 offers you pointed out seem very shady. 1) Trendtraderapp.com is promoted using actors we recognize from Fiverr.com if you scroll down below, you will notice 3 fake testimonials. 2) As for Professor Andersen, we cut the image on the front page and did a Google picture search using the faces used for the testimonials in order to see if the name matches their true identity and it came out negative. 3) As for the Millionaire Dream, it’s the first time we are seeing this website, it looks like a terrible scam, all the Beta testers made anywhere from $100,000-$1,000,000. If it seems too good to be true, it’s fake! Thank you for sharing the websites with us. At this point we will add all 3 to our list of binary options scams.

  27. Rowen says:

    Hi watchdog,

    I have just received it this morning and its AIApp(Artificial Intelligence App. I really want to know about this because it looks different but i myself can’t figure out about this because its really hard for me to decide and i’m not sure if its legitimate or not,kindly inform me about this new software that is going viral over the net.

    Best regards
    Rowen

  28. Rowen says:

    Hi Watchdog,

    I would like to share this because i just want to know if this one really is a legitimate money making software in which it shows online and it even mentioned with undeniable proof and some trade results underneath,so i’m sharing this for you to verify while me and others are not yet going through with it,hope to hear from you.

    Truly Yours

  31. Elias says:

    Hi team
    Which binary options companies are not a scam?

    Please advice
    As this would be a lot easier to go to the correct ones etc

    Thank you kindly in advance
    Elias

  32. Derek says:

    Hi Watchdog,

    I recently invested with EveryOption $20K and being Unregulated and putting trades on automatically intense trading running the balance down to zero. They put false $$ in to the account, saying they were winning trades to entice me to put more $ in. Then when I applied to make a $10K withdrawal, they traded it away and said bad luck. My VISA has credited the money back and I’ve got a good case to counter them.
    My real concern is with a recognized registered trader Bancdebinary. I have been groomed to the point of getting to their VIP platform mortgaging home and $115K USD. This allows you the best trades from the panel of experts. But before I even made a trade there I was coehurst into an upper level that required a further $15K with guarantees I could not lose and they were adding bonuses to reach what was now a $3ooK balance. We traded in this level to $413.5K and I didn’t want to do this anymore as I could see it was to risky losing 11 of 17 first trades. I was screamed at and told I had to keep going because they’ve invested too much of their money in this special 2week venture. They blamed me for those loses, saying my computer was not fast enough. When I checked the figures later I found they were losing trades. They wouldn’t have that saying others had won. We’ve made you a lot of money and you need a further $15K (the last amount we promise) to be in this venture normally only open to $1M clients. I was not comfortable with this and wanted a limit to how low the balance went and was guaranteed I would be happy and be drawing out minimum $65K on the 9th Sept. as I was sooo in debit. They had me trade in a volatile panic situation with no regards for my pleading, putting $15K x 8 on one after the other, like a gambler trying to make up for loses. They just kept pushing out the trades until I lost the lot, with no regards for my balance. Completely irresponsible trading from a department that “only trades on sure things.” Now, so that I don’t create waves, they hand me over to the Recovery Dept. for those who have lost more than $100K but you guessed it, I have to come up with a further $25K to show that I still intend to trade with them before they credit $130K (90% of my investment) back into the platform in 4-9 weeks time. What the hell do I do now? Read a few other reviews and it doesn’t sound like a good idea as may not get any back and am already ruined. Love your advice as to whether this situation has come up before and what action to take. Thanks

    Hi Watchdog,

    I’m very new to this Binary options so new i really i know nothing about it.
    Yesterday i came across 2 sites claiming how easy it is to make 1000’s p/day etc etc.
    Normally I’m not stupid enough to even read or listen but was bored and looked at both Millionaires Blueprint and Peak Profits Formula so i actually registered with both but only opened a trading account with Peak Profits Formula (Both of which now I’m sure are probably scams) 🙁
    Anyway i was called Only 15 minutes later by Stock.com Binary Options to make a deposit which i did. This man also gave me the name of the adviser / broker who would be contacting me to assist me. (which he did) we made an appointment for a time this morning but since rearranged for tomorrow as wanted to read your reviews here etc.

    I have not done anything yet since a friend advised me to check out your site.
    Any advice or your opinion please would be appreciateI must say you have a great site here THANK YOU, i just wish i’d seen it yesterday.

    Regards,

    Mark S

  44. margaret gregory says:

    what a need for what you are doing a great service and I pray GOD will truly Bless You! I am from THE OLD SCHOOL I DETEST LYING SCAMS AND PEOPLE THAT HURT OTHERS OR STEAL FROM THEM. I HAVE BEEN LIED TO, SCAMMED, STOLEN FROM, AND YOU NAME IT. DO YOU THINK THERE IS ANYWAY I CAN GET SOME OF MY MONEY BACK!!

  45. Lanny B says:

    Once again I am filing a complaint with you against Options Mogul. I requested a withdrawal to close my account FOUR MONTHS ago. They ignore my request, don’t answer their phone and only send emails to say “it takes time” I still don’t have my money. Now they have me blocked from accessing my account, saying I have the wrong login and password!
    This broker, Options Mogul, is the worst of the worst. They deserve to be blacklisted.
    Everyone beware of Options Mogul. Don’t sign up with them. You will never see your money again!

  46. Ron Proffit says:

    I’m so glad I found this site before doing something very stupid; like loosing a lot of MONEY.

  49. Siphiwe says:

    Hi Scam watchdog, I would just like to warn people about Optionrally, do not trust anything they say, I deposited money a while back, and they persuaded to deposit more. Well to cut the long story short I have been trying to withdraw it for the past 4 weeks, three things keep happening; it gets cancelled by the account manager, I go on to live chat, they tell me the account manager will be phoning me or they will escalate to the finance department as they do not know what the hold up is. I am really frustrated now, I wish I had done more research before depositing money. Now I don’t know what to do.

  52. Maverick says:

    Hi, best wishes to all, and a great thank you to Binary Options Watchdog for saving me at the 11th hour! I was checking out various binary option sites, and have managed to avoid losing money to some of them! I intend to go with the TopOption people shortly, after the info reported here. One of the sites I looked at was VXMarkets.com, just wondered if they were legit, as I was forwarded by Direct-Profits, which is a scam as reported here? Thank you again for being here.

  53. Rom Pareja says:

    I was scammed first the amount of US$ 250 by a guy from NRG Binary Options named Kevin Brandon and secondly by the name Michael Williams for the same amount. I can not contact any of these people but they keep on sending emails but without any reply or respond capability from my end. May this serve as a stern warning for other traders not to deal with these two individuals at any cost…

    • Carolyn says:

      I have also had dealings with Michael Williams and know that they are still operating as Kelly Williams, they are scam.

  54. Holger says:

    Hi, has anybody tried Eurosignal? They promise $100/day with a $500 deposit.

  55. Mogamat says:

    Auto Money Machines (Spencer Goods) were promoted by Rich Janitor Mike, aka Mike Dee.
    He supplies his mobile number for whatsapp messages and if contacted, assures you that site is genuine. Auto Money Machines are linked to No1 Options Trading Platform. The Auto Money Machines start trading immediately once activated and loses more trades than wins. The supposedly 24h support is non-existent. I note from a recent e-mail that Mike Dee is now promoting his own website advertising Binary Options.

With there fake platforms I mean you can manually trade with them and still loose those pips from their platform on closed positions simple there are not vanish in tin air they open/close positions what’s next that they do-is to tell you to Fund your account for the margin so that you can cash up big money on for the next trades that is you won’t cash it in you bank account until you see 0.00 balance and they come back blaming you for looses that you should be a man you can do it after all those promises- STAY-AWAY-FAR FAR-AWAY from them. We know trading is risky, but managable they can’t manage that you profit from this business only to feed their POTS. If can I put a claim on these people ? How dere they get away with these! Please HELP!

  61. Nadine Thompson says:

    Can anybody tell me if this person is legit or is he a good person with all these promotions.

    • WatchDog says:

      Hi Nadine, Did you mean Roy Tribble from ScamWatchDog? We disagree on some things but he is a good guy, one of the few to actually give back money to charities and to his own followers, such as what Michael Freeman has been doing for years. Roy and our team can both agree, based on a lot of feedback, that the GD software is profitable after getting more than enough feedback – GD Software Review. In general we don’t like to criticise people who do good things in this industry, there are plenty of bad guys out there to focus on! Please visit our blacklist for information on some of the products we found to be scams, you will find that both Roy and us have saved many people from different scams that are a plague in this industry.

  62. Nadine Thompson says:

    I appreciate your sincerity and objectivity. Thank you for protecting many traders from potential scams!

  64. Anastasijs Gabranovs says:

    Hello again!

    Some small owerview about my fight against maxoptions!

    So, I FINALLY GOT MY DEPOSIT MONEY BACK! 🙂 …but it was after opening Credit card disput in my CC company, from them I recive answer: “The only way we would be able to proceed with your dispute would be if you are able to provide a refund voucher or advice from the merchant that confirms the actual amount to be refunded, the date the refund was processed and the last four digits of the card number the refund was made to. If you are unable to get a response from the merchant with this information then we have to close your dispute on our end.” – not promising, isn’t it? Of course if we takes into account that the service provider is SCAM they will never provide with asked information! 🙂
    As I faund out that there is nothing to do with bank ( I tried really hard to convince help me, without result) next step was (I’m living in UK) Financial Ombudsman and last one – Action Fraud – after i informed maxoptions com about case in Action Fraud I got my money back in two days! …but still I think they are Scaming… so – avoid using maxoptions service and check Binaryoptionswatchdog trusted broker list!
    It is not 100% that you will get your money back but if you are victime of fraud you at least will do something against SCAM companies and make a bit cleaner environment for young Binary and Forex traders!

    • WatchDog says:

      Hi Asemota, CherryTrade was a legitimate broker, unfortunately they are no longer available.
      As for the Binaryoptionrobot we’re getting mixed feedback, it’s not a scam but probably not the best service around. Don’t expect a very high performance!

  82. sebastian says:

    hello i deposited with GO options I tried to do my withdrawal more than a month ago but They have many excuses for not returning my money

    they can do so that I can
    withdraw my money

    Thank you for your help

    • WatchDog says:

      As for Binary BackDoor, we didn’t receive any feedback as it’s a new site. It looks very suspicious. As for Goptions Sebastian, they are a complete fraud and the only way to deal with them is by filing a credit card dispute with your CC’s fraud department. You can find them by callinng the number on the back of the credit card you used to deposit money with them. Since they are a confirmed scam and you can find lot’s of evidence all over the internet, chances are that you will win the dispute. It might take a few days or a few weeks but justice is with you!

  83. Derek says:

    I would like to know if Instant Option software is credible software to purchase?

  84. Solos says:

    Is Gold Digger a reliable software?

  85. Leslie says:

    Hi Watchdog, I want to request that traders be very careful of CTOptions. I opened a $250 account and started trading with a money management system. The operator tried using their replicator, which was not satisfactory and requested I change broker to one which had a good replicator. I agreed and placed a withdrawal of funds. I must clarify, I opened my 1st 4 trades with $13,all 4 were itm, with total profit of $41.47. When I placed the withdrawal of funds from CTOption, I had the Account manager call me to say I would be refunded my initial deposit less an administration fee only, because I had traded higher than their stipulated 5%. Apparently they have this legal print somewhere where we are restricted to max 5% trades, not allowed to trade same pair twice etc,etc.
    Now $13 is 5% (rounded up by 50c) of $250, and it is also my understanding that account managers are there to look after their clients, and not keep quiet when they see any transgressions, whether deliberate or accidental, and if they keep quiet and do not communicate same with the client, they are then condoning the trades placed by the client.
    This is outright theft in my book, aad what if I had continued trading and amassed a huge profit and then been told I could not have my funds!!
    This broker should be blacklisted!! I have subsequently been hearing and reading about similar complaints from traders in many broker groups on facebook.
    Please will you investigate these scammers and place them where they belong, on your blacklisted brokers group.
    Many thanks.

  86. Liam says:

    Hi Solo

    I have been using Gold Digger for the last couple of weeks and with a 250 account. The account is now up to 700. The key factor about Gold Digger is its accuracy in Gold and in the end of day trades.

  87. NGO says:

    I invested in investpaypal.com $ 80 but I detect a scam I suggest withdraw their money but I do not answer then please help!

In one day, ONLY ONE, it took them to get me from $250 to $0. ZEO balance! This is not even a bad service, it’s a complete scam. If the signals were break-even or not so good, I would understand but how can anyone explain 12 losing signals in a row. I should follow the software backwards, but it’s too late now. I am done!!

This is not an offer you want to trust, $18,000/day is more than any software will ever generate for you and even the best ones in the market.

Quite a desperate sales pitch promising 1000.00 in 7 minutes then the skies the limit!! Fails also to say which broker you have to use.

    Just a thought, why not arrange your list of comments so that the latest received shows up first. I’m sure readers don’t want to scroll right to the end and that is where up to date information is found. Regards, Alec.

  133. Claus Jensen says:

    Can you tell me if the recently released (Oct. 2015) Danish autotrader ‘profitsamler’ is a scam? In the video ad a ‘single mother’ claims to have a success rate of 80-85% with the system. In my case I tried it for 2 weeks with a success rate of about 40%. Guess where my money (500€) went?!

    At least the broker they use – EZtrader – is a decent one

    • WatchDog says:

      Dear Claus, EZTrader is not a broker we trust. As for the ITM, 40% is far from 80%+… It’s definitely misleading as good traders and services shouldn’t advertise such high performace if they can’t generate something close to it for members. In order to profit from binary options you must get at least 65% in most cases, depending on the payout per each asset, and if the service gets you less than 60% ITM, it’s a losing service. After 20-30 signals you can reach a solid conclusion, but if you get a few losing trades in a row, you should discontinue without waiting for a minimum of 20+ trades.

    I’ve had Binary Defender for over 2 months now & after reading your review I KNEW something was off I just couldn’t place my finger on it. I noticed that when I would go on Metatrader4 and have the defender on I would not get ANY signals at all. I would e-mail John Kane and he would not answer the question that I would ask. I e-mailed a few times and the same thing. Not answering the questions that I asked. I would leave it on all day and not 1 signal would come through. $152.00 down the drain. I even e-mailed Binary Defender themselves and all I got was there was plenty of signals and if I needed more to turn off the filter. I thought that it was a bad thing to turn off the filters. (SHM)

      Hi Jim, We exposed TitanTrade a few months ago in a review that went pretty viral. Many traders reported losses! As for Forex Paradise, we will need to look into it, based on a quick research it seems like a relatively new site.

  151. Christolien Olivier says:

    Can you direc me to the detail of Titan trade scam.

  152. Margaret says:

    Please Watch Dog, a company harassed me so much. They had all you advised like a trial sign up, I had to follow compliance protocol to ensure in Europe that ensures these are legal companies and not fraudulent company’s to provide money for terrorism or or auto theft. But OptionsXO took my money and disappeared. I feel so stupid. I need help. Last company I withdrew from used most of my money to withdraw. Nothing went back to my credit card. Please, please can you help me. Thanks so much, I feel better know WatchDog is here.

  153. Aurelio says:

    Hi Watchdog. Do you know somethig about “Sarah’s Confession” Software?

  154. Lori Mattson says:

    Alot of the problem is they lye so bad and make it sound so good. Like your going to make 5k a day. Things that lure you in but when it comes to collecting the money then it’s always a problem. You usually can’t get into the website they send

  155. Carl says:

    Options Mogul is a scam..They would not return my balance..

  156. Chris Howard says:

    Hi Guys can anyone spread some light on The Torah Code there seem to be so many sites in favour of this but im not sure if they are on commission for this or wether the Torah Code is really as good as they say, I cant find any comments from Binary Options Watchdog about this so called project am I safe or do you think it is just another scam

  157. Ben Ben says:

    I find my broker to be honest I have no problems withdrawing and make a consistent profit

  158. david says:

    Digitalforex.eu (not .com)
    Anyone had any experience with these guys, particularly Chris Marlen (not his real name) I have his details if nyone is interested.

  159. Christof says:

    Good day

    I will make a long story short. Invested in UBINARY. I can’t withdraw money from them. If I want to they keep calling and say I should invest more. One broker arranged that I could withdraw, but it didn’t work out, I never received the money. After that, the same thing appears when I want to withdraw: You are not able to withdraw contact a manager , or something similar to that. I can’t say that they stole my money or worked irresponsibly with the money because all the money is still there, I just can’t get it. I opened a fraud case against them with the fraud police in London, UK. I won’t advise you to use them for any trading.

  160. James says:

    is fast cash biz a scam too?

  161. KingLeo says:

    I just signed up, I’ll update my comment once I confirm if it’s legit.

  162. Angelica says:

    Please try to check the company name 72option because it mislead me and just lost my $3k just from 21 December 2015.

  163. Angelica says:

    Check out Jayson Taylor of Britmethod and Jake Pertu of Ausimethod they both share the same photo but different name only. Also check out 72option is also a SCAM! Their Videos looks very promissing saying they will give you back £10,000 if you dont make money in less than 1 month but whenever i reply their email i never get any response regarding the money back guarantee blah blah they said. Thanks.

    • WatchDog says:

      Thank you Angelica, We exposed all the scams in detailed reviews besides 72option, we don’t have enough information on this broker. If possible, please do send us additional details please.

    Is usmillionaireeclub.com a scam?

  176. Kelvin says:

    I would like to give everyone a heads up on Titan Trade. They are the biggest and manipulative scammers on the face of the planet. I lost nearly 7k euro and I filed a dispute with my bank and got all my money back. Even after they lost all my money I was still getting calls/emails from a different scammer encouraging me to continue investing and losing money. They will sucker you into investing your life and then say that they lost all your money on bad trade signals and leave you with the debt. Stay away from those people.

  177. Justin Turner says:

    Can you check out if Zebron investments is a scam? I just can’t tell. About to invest $2k and want to make sure it’s legit.

  179. john como says:

    So virtnext not a scam

    • WatchDog says:

      No John, Virtnext is actually the top performing industry site when it comes to auto-trading. All authority blogs and forums seem to agree after getting a lot of great feedback. We’ve been testing the software for months so we have no doubt that it’s not a scam.

  180. DocWhite says:

Is someone out there who can help.

He also mentioned getting a line of credit and I told him-no I couldn’t. they make it sound real good and video is awesome so people are happy and making money. But beware.

  228. Tom Smith says:

    OptionRobot.Com is a scam. Veryclever but a scam no less. If you find yourself being redirected to a web page called OptionRobot.Com from a legitimate site do not put any money into a real account. And do not use their demo unless you want to see a scam in operation before your very eyes.

  239. lost6950 says:

    I also have been scammed out of £6950 pounds by believing the account manager of OneTwoTrade.
    Thorougjhly agree that people like these ought to be shut in prison for life. I read everything i could about them before investing, but nothing turned up against them at he time. Only wish i had found this media first maybe then i might have saved my hard earnd cash. Then after investing £6950 my bank’s credit card facility told me they would not honour and further tranactions to this company. But by that time it was too late

  240. Mark Carson says:

    I invested 15k australian over a few moths and watched it get lost with the broker loosing 6k or more a day on 24hour options and wiped out all the money and at one point deducted more money from my credit card, he used mmy winnings to bet on options without speaking to mew either so When I thought I had made some money and wanted to withdraw it, he had tied it up on long term options which proceeded to be lost, I cancelled my credit card
    The company was Ubinary .com

  244. Chee Phang Chan says:

    Hello watchdog, although you are doing a great job, but ever so slowly, heard of maximus aka maximus capital, by now this is still quite new , if you find that this is also a scam, then stop it before it goes viral. Also I would like you to look into FC biz you said it went viral now, be careful, here comes fast cash club is this their new ploy or are they related like cousins hot on the heels of fast cash biz. I sometimes wonder if you have not make any initial deposits, how is it possible that you can already earn commissions !!! These people are great arent’ they giving out money in so many ways. out of the blue, they would sent an email that say that they have funded and activated your account, OMG Go try and collect it, only to be disappointed , there you will see only a sales video, you never get to see any money, that is for sure ! These people are not stupid, they think we are stupid and jump into their site, I mean their net and lose all your money.Dear traders, Look before you tread, use your common sense please, before you use your dollars !!!

  245. trevor says:

    UBOL Capital is also a scam. Suck you in with the promise of a fully managed account then tell you that they have an agreement with Mastercard where you can trade using credit. UBO capital broker then advises you that they will release x amount to you each month to pay the credit card back but you never see any money again
    When I tried to withdraw my money because they didn’t live up tot heir promise they locked my funds away in a long term trade which I did not approve and now wont release my funds.
    I spoke to their manager Dave who advised that my funds would be released with in 48 hours but now that’s 3 months ago and still they have not complied.
    I have since found numerous others who have been scammed the same way. Avoid their Brokers Samanath Novac, the supposed Account manager Jack Fisher and their Manager Dave. Just avoid this company all together. As for Samantha as a Broker, I won more trades than she did.. Really back business ethics and a total scam to be avoided

    I don’t understand why we cant just social Media them or hacktivist them out of existence. They are fraudulent thieves anyway conducting illegal activities anyway aren’t they?

  246. winston says:

    Hi all
    I can not understand why you guys keep on trying to join Binary Brokers, you can never trust any of them, once your money is in their hands you can kiss it goodbye, you dare not give your money to a faceless person,EVER, after 3 months it will be to late to claim yur money back from your credit card company, Do not FUND the binary account before checking with watchdog or scam reviews sites on youtube please, I myself have lost a lot of money through option broker John Loris of Big Option, BE CAREFULL guys

Once youve signed up they never leave you alone, phone call after phone call, emails etc. Very persuavise fast talking you into parting with your money.

    Hi I lost 200K under a broker from FM trader. I had never trades before and thought what he was doing was right – 60 second trades are never alright especially using all the money in the account. For 4 months we were winning 10K per day but 1 night when we got to 227K it all went in 3 mins. Absolutely heartbroken I trusted this person. I am suing the broker and the company for negligence among other things. Please people stay away from FM trader and a broker named Thomas Samuel.
    Hope this helps someone.
    Cheers Donna

  288. Sharon Joseph says:

    Hi I’m from South Africa, I have been scammed by 3 traders including Banc de Binary, 72 Options and 10 Markets I am heart broken as these agents are so smooth talking. Within seconds of trading I lost my money and they still had the audacity to demand more money. I have asked these agents to repeatedly stop trading as I can see that I was losing my money but they refused. I cannot access the account that I have with 72 Options as it is no longer available on their website and they refused to give me whatever money that I had in my account. Was told that it’s company policy. With 10 markets just deposited 250 USD was then told that I must deposit another 2500USD which I refused to do. I asked them to refund me the deposit and I haven’t heard from them eversince. I don’t know where to get help from until I saw this blog. PLEASE HELP ME! !!!

  297. Jose M. San Martin says:

    I am a 65 years old from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I got into binaryonline thru a web page called theaussimethod that was declare fraud by scam alert web page-
    They asked me a deposit of $250 I did that with all the compliance papers. Then they gave an account manager by the name Viktor Bogrov from Russia. He did some investment for me and got me a profit of more tan 300%. I got excited but did not know that I was walking into a trap.
    A week later he asked if I wanted to make big money and he asked me for more money, I told him I have only a Little money saved, a Little over 5.000 dollars.
    He asked that money promising I could make over $1.000 a month so innocent of me I send $ 5.600 thru my Mastercard credit card to them.
    He did some investments mostly on currencies and commodities, lost some, won some and then I did some investment in currencies and got to $ 8.448,70.
    Then I wrote to you asking about Binaryonline and you told me that they were unlicensed and to stay away from them…but it was already too late.
    I asked to send me my money and it began six month back and forth communication in wich they never deposit a penny even thought I have send them 24 mails requesting to withdrew my own money.(I have copies of everything)
    Then another man came in called Victor McGregor from the finance department with a Russian or Bularian accent with a script and a strategy to state that they send me $1.000 to my credit card, sending me fake tracking numbers. I checked with my Bank 6 times and they told me the money never arrived. I send them the Bank statements and the still insist that they send it.
    So could you help me to get at least the $5.800 that I invested with Binaryonline.
    Thank you so much for what you do, helping people like me from these
    Unscrupulous people. Don´t ever give your money to Binaryonline. They are professionals in fraud and deceiving people

      I’d recommend Daweda Exchange since they are fully EU-regulated and also they offer an auto trader. IQ Option is a great broker, but no auto trader is available. Lexington and Snap Cash are no longer recommended by us due to a drop in performance and also because they don’t work with regulated brokers.

    • lanouet92 says:

      SC,

      If you use a regulated binary options broker that is legal where you reside binary options are not a scam. Most of these scams that are tainting the reputation of the binary options industry arise in the form of unregulated brokers or bogus trading softwares. Now if you lacked the ability to conduct thorough research and get started with unregulated brokers then chances are you are going to be in for a rough awakening.

      However, if you get started with a regulated broker, a reliable strategy and put some hard work into your investing then you can definitely benefit through binary options.

      The question is are you willing to put in the work to do your research then further improve your investing game?

    Hi I was scammed by alliedmastertrade.com back in October. I deposited $500 and they promised a $1000 payout every month. When I tried withdrawing my earnings the following month they wouldnt let me withdrawal and said they needed $500 more. So to this day I havent been able to withdrawal the profits nor get my $500 back. I tried paypal and my bank to get my money back but was unsuccessful. Im doubtful I can get my money back but thought I would write this anyway.

  354. Opit Avengers says:

    Dear Watchdog,

    Few days back I met a woman named Stubbs Lanisha, you can search her name in FB. She said she is an account manager. No bad comments about her from her friends in her FB wall. She asked 20% as commission.

    Short of story I send her $250 to open an account. She brought me in to the broker called “Automatic Options.” I couldn’t find any review about this broker. No body are talking about this broker. No single website in google mention it except its own official website. It is accessible, she gave me user name and password to login.

    Life trading was commenced by March 29th, 2017. Surprisingly she turned my account in to $5,484.6 in 3 days. I can send you the trading history screen shoot if you need. The problem is I couldn’t withdraw the money before I pay her 10% of my account balance. She said it’s for the broker. I told her to cut her part from my account balance since she still have the full control of it, But she refused due to technical issues. I didn’t follow up after all.

    So, Watchdog, did you ever heard her name or the broker? Anybody?

    Thank you.
    Best regards

    • WatchDog says:

    Hi
    Is ‘The Infinity Code’ by Daniel Audunsson and Rob legit?

  356. Ojay says:

    Hello Everyone,

    I just wanted to add UTrader to the list of Scam brokers you have here.
    They take advantage of naïve and inexperienced traders and this is how they scam you.

    They first of all ask you to make the minimum deposit of $250. Then the next day or 2, they assign an account manager to you who lies to you and tells you that there is a fantastic 1 day deal coming up that they are guaranteed would win. And then they start putting pressure on you to bring in about £5000 for the deal to yield 80 – 85% profit. They also lie to you that the money will be insured and that if anything goes wrong with it, you will get your money back. Unfortunately I fell for their trap because one review stated they had been their since 2011 or so; however they were regulated by an Unknown russian body and Cysec didn’t licence them.

    Anyway, I gave them my money which I had kept aside for my taxes, about £3,500 as they assured me the money will be insured and that if the deal fails, they will give me back my money and I can pay my taxes, etc. However, what they will never tell you is that if you lose that money and they put it back it will come as a bonus. It will no longer be your money which you could withdraw at any time and you will have to trader to a volume of £200,000 before you can start talking about withdrawing money.

    They deliberately lied to me and kept this part from me because they know that no one will invest such an amount of money if they know it will only come back as a bonus if it loses. So I gave them the money without knowing this and the account manager made the trades on 2 assets which both lost. Another thing is that they make sure that your trades lose because whether you lose or win, many of these brokers make their money from the commission from each trade made and so their ultimate aim is the ensure volume trader for them with their money.

    When I lost, they put the £3,500 back in my account but I could never withdraw the money. Each time I tried to make a withdrawal, they kept on cancelling the withdrawal without any explanation. Then I began to make loads of complaint but their just kept on tossing me here and there, promising that someone would contact me but no one did until I began to make threats to expose them and then they finally contacted me.

    They also craftily removed the first account manager who they had sent to lie to me and assigned another account manager to me who just wanted me to keep trading and slaving for the company with the money they had put back. She informed me that my £3,500 had been lost to the market and the money they put back in my account was a bonus and I would have to trader to a volume of £200,000 before I think of withdrawing any money. I was furious and demanded my money back as I made it clear to them that this wasn’t what I was told when I was pressured to invest the £3,500. She told me that we should move on as the money had been lost to the market but she was going to help me trader with their bonus and make lots of money.

    Then I knew I had been scammed and so I just made sure I emptied the account and had a zero balance instead of slaving for them for ever without being able to withdraw any money. I promised them that I would take my story to the ends of the world and as many sites exposing scam binary option brokers that I can find on the internet.

    So friends do not go near the binary broker Utrader. They are a scam.

    If you know of any other website that exposes scam binary option brokers, please let me know as I am making it a career to expose this particular scam site on as many sits I can find and with as many regulatory bodies possible.

    Cheers

I requested the account to be closed on the 27th March 2017 and to date HW Markets are still trading on my account using the auto robot. How can I stop them from trading and get my money back. I have read your chargeback information, but HW Markets haven’t responded.

  367. Abs says:

    I am relieved to have discover your details on the internet. In this way together, we can put all these scammers out of business.
    I invested with Olimp Finance back in September 16. I initially started with £250. I was allocated a broker called ” Daniel Sage” After few trading sessions, my balance increased to £600. I was then pressured into investing more, I ended up investing up to £22, 250.00

    Within 3 months, my account balance grew to £52k. I refused to take their bonus and risk free trades to avoid withdrawals problems down the line. But, unfortunately, I was wrong. These scammers use pushy techniques in order for you to loose money. My nightmares began when I placed £30k withdrawals to take care of my deposit and a bit of profit. As I was chasing my withdrawals I began to receive all sort of excuses: sickness for as long as a week, delays in responding to emails, ignoring phone calls etc..I have managed to pull my investment back but they denied to pay my profit. After putting them in front of the evidence they did send me in confirming they will honour my withdrawals and even went further in asking them what do I need to do in order to retrieve my profit …they responded by closing my account with £29,512 locked in. I am very upset for being taken for a ride by these scammers. I would really appreciate if you could help me recover my funds from OLIMP FINANCE.
