Binary Options Scams – Questions and Answers 

How To Identify a Binary Options Scam? At times traders can fall into the hands of a fraudulent company, pretending to offer the same services and level of customer care that the popular brokers offer their users. Depositing your money is easy with any company you signup with, yet the withdrawal process might quickly become a nightmare if you signup with the wrong broker. I am committed to keep the Binary Options Black-List up to date.  One of the first signs is the lack of customer service and if the customer service team is unavailable during business/trading hours they probably won’t be around when you ask for your money back. Another way to identify a Binary Options Scam is by conducting a Google Search to find any negative testimonials and reviews on the company and it’s recommended that you background the company before you signup. It won’t help much to research the company after you already funded your account.

I signed up with a bonus and now I can’t withdraw my money, what can I do? In many cases, traders without any online trading experience fall into the New Account Bonus Offers that restrict the trading account. This restriction is referred to as a “Loyalty Offer” which sounds better, yet in reality a bonus restricts your account to a trading volume requirement that is usually much higher than the deposit amount, locking your funds with the broker until you satisfy the condition. Does it mean you got scammed? If the representative explained the bonus restrictions and you still decided to take the bonus, it’s not a scam. If the broker sets you up with a bonus without asking you, it’s a scam. Over all I don’t recommend signing up with any special incentives and bonuses.

I want to request a withdrawal and they are asking me for a picture ID and my credit card information, Should I give them my personal information?  Some traders may confuse the standard identification procedure implemented by all brokers for the safety of the users for an identity theft scam of some kind, yet this is a necessary procedure to ensure that the customer requesting the withdrawal is the same account’s depositor. If a binary options broker asks you for your Social Security Number of any other sensitive information besides your ID , Utility bill and Credit Card Info this might be a binary options scam and you should never give out this information!

I’ve been scammed! How get I receive my money back? If you are %100 confident you signed up with a scam broker you can file a dispute with your credit card company and cancel out the transaction, in most cases you will lose if you don’t have sufficient proof that you didn’t receive the services you signed up for so the burden of proof is on you, the customer. Disputes may take up to 30 days but in the case you did in fact get scammed this might be your only possible way to get your money back!

      1. Hi Michael,

        I just want to make sure that I can comnunicate with you directly. I am new and interested with binary options and I am asked to trade for $370 minimum deposit and they said it could increase up to $1,950 per week. It is with I don’t know if you know, but it is with Stephen Greg. I’m also not sure if you got Instagram, but I found binary options in Instagram. I appreciate your response. Thank you!

  1. Any has experience with WTI = World Trade Insurance to open a dispute with a scam binary options platform and to recover funds?

  2. Hi Mike,

    I signed to your autotrader and it redirected me to PWRTrade as a broker. Are they regulated ? and can they betrusted ? Thanks.

    1. I have been victim of PWRtrade, they make it so beautiful at the beginning and ounce you give your money, forget about it unless you are an experience trader because they made me loose most of my money with the first 10 trades they proposed me

      1. Thanks guys. Not sure how PWTrade manage to represent itself as a nominated broker on Mike auto trading site. My region is Asia.
        Can Mike’s admin looking this and reassign to a reputable broker

  3. I have just received an email from a Victoria Kogan representing ‘moneybacklawer’ willing to help me get my back money that was scammed from me by a binary option scam, can you tell me who moneybacklawer is and can I trust them?

    1. I got a help from Moneybacklawer 2 month ago and they really helps me with getting my funds back.
      So i can recommend them.

      Richmmond Hill,Canada

        1. From my expirience with MBL it took about 2,5 month and I got back everything including compensation.All this even befor any court.

          1. Be aware that MasterCard changed their T&C’s on 21st April and now deem you making a successful deposit to a broker as them having met their responsibilities and the brokers own T&C’s, regardless of true validity of the brokers claims to operate and be a broker in your country. So you must have black and white evidence of an unkept promise or refund/withdrawal payment to start a chargeback claim. Otherwise the cost of engaging a chargeback service could be just more good money after bad…

      1. Hi everyone. My name is Andrey Komov.

        Last year July I started a binary trading account with a company called Titan Trades. A very warm and friendly young woman used to make regular contact with me to update me on the market status and advise me on attractive trades. During our short relationship, I made a total of three deposits to the binary company. The first was an amount of $500. Then a second for the amount of $2000. For my third and final deposit, I wired an amount of $17,500. This was after my “broker” convinced me that there was very little risk and a very appealing reward to trade in oil. In one single trade session, I lost the sum total of my trading balance. This came as a massive shock after things seemed to be going so favorably for me and I was promised good results. After my account balance reflected 0, I was unable to get hold of my broker. She did not answer my calls or emails and this was very suspicious after she had been the one who made such efforts to keep in touch with me before and then after losing all of my money she was all of a sudden gone! I believe that my money was stolen from me as this company manipulated me into opening a trading account and making larger deposits because of the promises they made. Now, I can’t even log in to my online profile to see what is happening in my account. Now i have no choice except to hire an attorney. Thinking about “moneybacklawer” company.

      2. Hello Artur, can you tell me how much money you had to pay out to get your money back, as I have also been contacted by moneybacklawer. I seem to be paying money to them and the FCA who they say they have investigating the scam

  4. Hi,

    I wanted to know your thought about the ‘Binary Option Auto Trading’ software if they are real. After searching the internet and seeing scammer after scammer i found them. In my opinion they are clean and clear about their software. They don’t say you become a rich overnight nor do they promote the software like the scammer. Also they are not in your blacklist nor the blacklist from the watchdog site.

    Please let me know!


      1. Thank you for your answer and since you are in my opinion the only real and honest person about binary options my search for a auto trader has ended. It seems to me now a waste of time to find one. I have 7 years of forex experience but because recent happenings in my life (mother past away) i lost about 50000 euro on trades based on…..well just trades. My reason for a auto trader was to compensate for the mistakes i keep making. Their is no need to fall into a deathtrap of scammers!!!

        For this i will start viewing your video’s to see if i still need to trade BO’s like forex otherwise its nothing for me anymore. That will be too bad since to me it the job of the future….if your doing it right. Thx again for your honest answer!

        1. Hi Kenneth,
          Can someone actually trade without losing?
          My answer is No.
          why do we employ professionals, ( Doctors, Engineers e.t.c )?
          Based of the particular skill there have acquired, academically or by experience.
          What is the need for a professional?
          Accuracy, To reduce the level of risk.
          what is the difference between a successful and unsuccessful trader?
          More gain and less loses.
          Trading BO’s is very profitable.
          Please I can help, don’t quite. but you have a choice to make (smile)

  5. Has anyone heard of World Trade insure to get money back from binary option thieves… Or does anyone know of a way to get my money back from binary options that stole my money that doesn’t cost thousands of dollars.

  6. hi ..I live in the uk can u tell me which would be the best ,, this is my first time

    1. Do not even attempt to make contact with worldtradeinsure they are scammers they promise to get back your money then they come up with a plan saying they have contacted your broker and with commission your money would be sent to them .This is when they scam you they ask for 5% of the total upfront and they tell you they will release your fund you send them the 5% and they disappear with your money it’s a scam stay well away .

  7. I invested $250 with this site (totaltrader) thinking that they are real but on Easter Sunday their went into my account to make withdrawal another $250 without my consent, their are not picking my calls and I called the first number they called with and the person that pick the call start denying he does not work with totaltrade that I should contact whoever is my broker. I realize that this is a scam because I have put up my money for withdrawal since Sunday but it was on pending. I have wrote them several emails without any respond from them regarding my money.

    Please let people know about this site because their are bunch of criminals. (totaltrader)

    1. thanks for the head start really appreciate it at least most of us wouldn’t fall victim to them. i know of some one who can help you get your founds back if you interested.

  8. Hey guys, I have another Binary broker that needs to be blacklisted. CToptions, have tried to scam me over and over again. I have mails of them even saying they are scamming people and mails of them abusing and insulting. I want to get the word out to as many people as I can. Don’t trust them on any circumstance, they all use fake names and thy all use very bad fake accents.

  9. Hi Mike,
    I signed up with Olimp Finance 6 months ago. Their market analyst was calling me 3 times a week to trade. I have opened the account with initial deposit of £250, then got pressurised to invest more up to £22k. Within 3 months my trading account got to £52k. My nightmare began when I placed £30k withdrawal In January…I got all sort of excuses, from my account manager being sacked to a tight cash flow problem with the broker. Then they agreed to a £3k weekly which they were barely abiding to. I had no bonus whatsoever attached to my account. I began to receive threats, harsh emails to coerce to trade by myself despite the fact of promising training, which never happened. As soon as I managed to pay £19k, they blocked my account with £30k locked in it citing breach of their terms and conditions. All along I have discovered that Olimp Finance run a sophisticated scam in luring innocent people to invest. They will either make you loose all your capital or trade your account and deny you your profit. Please spread the word. This company is not regulated anywhere. They are just scammers. Can anyone tell me where OLIMP FINANCE is based??? At least we can stop another innocent life getting destroyed by these evils

      1. Hi Mike,
        Olimp Finance has closed my account with my money locked into. How do i get them to pay my profit of £30k? Does any know where they are based? I went to where they said the owners where registered, 31 Southampton Row, WC1B 5HJ, England. They do not operate from the UK for sure. These scammers have to be shut down before any other person looses their life savings

  10. Mike,

    I recently invested a test amount with a company called First Options Trading. I was wondering if you know anything about this company to its legitimacy? Thanks!

      1. Okay, I will. The person with whom I am working with says that they conduct their trades through 24 Options, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are affiliated with them. I’ll definitely keep you posted. Thanks.

        1. So, I spoke with the broker in regards to the withdrawal process and he stated that I have to come up with 10% of the total account value and send it as a fee before the withdrawal can be completed. Definitely doesn’t make sense.

          Do you have any advice?


  11. Thanks Mike. Can you recommend a honest broker. That will pay out if I want to withdraw. some funds ? Regards Freddie

  12. Hi Roberto Huertas
    my name is Jenny Morgan. I receive your email (I invested in allgotrade and now there website disappear.
    If you can contact them please let me know). I have some thing better to offer you than contacting allgotrade wish is presently a past, because the more of the past you look, the less of the future you see. Trading is in deed profitable, but a child that must walk must not be afraid of falling, please stop looking behind and start trading afresh. Love to hear from you again

  13. Hi Mike

    Great site, suggestion if I may, another tab at top with links to all the reviews you have done. May save you some time down the road.
    Meanwhile, know anything about BinBotPro? They are already linked to Binarymate.

  14. Hello Mike,

    Thank you for such a good and honest site.
    I like to know what you know about etraderpro. When I read their terms and conditions it says that the company Capital Force Ltd is the editor of website etraderpro. But far down at the page it says “The website etraderpro is owned and operated by DRG Solutions Ltd”

    I’ve seen that capital force ltd are the owners of both option888 and zoomtrader. Which doesn’t look good for my part since I’ve traded with etraderpro and I’m currently at a loss. I have a personal broker and I’ve had the exact thing of 250€ investment and then 5000€ in a secured contract. I’d like to tell the whole story, but first I wonder if you can give me any more info on this site since it’s very hard to find?

    Thanks again


        1. I wouldn’t trust it since in terms and conditions it states your legal relationship is with “the company Capital Force Ltd., editor of website etraderpro.” And they are not regulated.

    1. I’m personally investigating Option888 and Optionstars and Optionstarglobal – as well as zoomtrader. There is some story here, as they all feature the same Samoan address – 13 Novasage Chambers, Apia, Samoa.

      Supposedly reg. no. 70611,but this company doesn’t show up on the Samoan Ministry of Commerce website. They have a UK number and some fluent guys speaking good (but slightly accented) English.

      The other part of my story is that a relative just lost USD 14000 to option888 🙁
      Most people aren’t yet aware that they are linked to the already infamous optionstarsglobal, so i’m busy putting word out…

  15. Hi Michael

    I see Lexington Code in the blacklist, yet I’ve also seen it promoted a legitimate product. I’ve read both very positive and very negative reviews of it. Obviously, many of the positive reviewers are affiliates and it is difficult to ascertain which are legit and which are not. Also, if it is legit, can you tell me whether it works with a regulated Australian broker such as HighLow or Go Market? Thank you.

      1. I thought so. How do or can i recover my trading deposits & so called trading insurance with them? Can you help?

  16. Hi many thanks for exposing this it is thanks to people like you and this website that helps to educate someone like me so that I don’t fall into their trap. Sorry to read about it but thanks for exposing.

  17. Hi. I can sympathise with you. I had exactly the same experience with OptionsXO. Unfortunately I was stupid enough to invest a fair bit more than you and will never see it again. These parasites need to be stopped. It is crazy that there is nothing being done to stop them. So many people are losing life savings etc. To these criminals.
    If you hear of any other sites ow methods of exposing these scumbags please let me know as I would like to join you in your quest to stop them

    1. i made stupid trading as well with UT market which is based in poland. not even single money they returned, only stole my money from my account trading become zero. they are so so parasite. be aware of it!!??

    2. Thought I was the only one to get sucked in by OptionsXO. Peter Shaw (later Peter King), Sean Adams, Robb Daniels, Henry Piaf, all of them absolute liars and extremely clever with it so you have no comebacks with the banks. How do they sleep at night…? I only hope for karma, while I write it off as a life lesson and move on.

      1. Hi Carlos,
        Yes Peter King and Dan Costas (fake names I suspect) are extremely clever at reeling you in and sucking as much as they can out of innocent people like you and me.
        Have you tried to get any money back? I have hit a brick wall. Glad you are moving on- it took me quite a few months to do that – I was practically suicidal 6 months ago but am still feeling the consequences of losing all that money those scum stole from me.

        1. Hi David, I agree fake names, but well trained cheats all of em!
          I’m through the suicidal, non-sleeping stage, that was about 6 months ago, now just feel so damn foolish! But also determined to try and get something back through chargeback, or just spread the word so others avoid this company.
          I’m in the midst of chargeback process (though mychargeback recommended here). One card company (a Bank Visa) have agreed to look deeper so I’m submitting a report, the other (MasterCard) went through in detail with me but do not feel I have a case they can win (careful non-committal wording by OptionsXO never to truly deviate from their website published T&C’s).
          So do be warned that the preparation of the reports to submit to the bank have to be paid for before the card companies agree to take on the case and can therefore be another $750 effectively lost. I’m not convinced my Visa case will be successful by any means due to the agreements to the bonus terms I implicitly agreed to, the fact that I was the one that ultimately pressed the buttons to make the trades and deposit the funds and, as I said, already half my deposited money is lost as MasterCard won’t even look at my detailed report I paid for.
          I wish you and everyone the best of luck, I hope you get as much back as possible from these crooks.

      2. You can initiate a chargeback through your visa. It will take several months but clearly fraudulent activity has occurred. Don’t give up and put pressure on Visa to address their non-compliance tribunal.

  18. This sounds very much like IvoryOptions. This is exactly what they do!!!
    Typical story. Either they are trading as different names or their scamming strategy is identical.

  19. 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.


  20. Some time in May 2016, i made contact with one Helen Costa of Binary Basis ( and she introduced to me the Managed Accounts package of theirs via Apple Options and Discover options (Big Bell Solutions company). I had my concerns and she convinced me that they were not frauds. I went on to start making investments as detailed below from July 2016 to September 2016 to the tune of $35,000.
    The trades seemed like they were going well until the 24th of March 2017, which was just a week to my withdrawal of my first accounts that had a duration of 5 months. I contacted the Account Manager, Helen Costa on Skype and she continued to feign ignorance of the events even while they were still ongoing. I got screen shots of the flush down and sent to her, but she claimed that she had contacted the trading team and was yet to get a feedback. Meanwhile my accounts were being wiped out. I got in touch with both Apple options and Discover options by chat and they referred me to Binary Basis.On the 27th of March 2017, an e-mail was received from, as shown in the bracket

    ( Dear Sirs,

    we acknowledge that in the trading session of Mar 24, 2017 the losses
    were incurred on your binary options accounts. Now we are trying to
    figure out the reasons of algorythm malfunction. We have called the
    Committee to investigate the situation. Once the results are revealed,
    we will introduce the solutions to compensate the losses.

    We appreciate your trust and will do our best to solve the situation in
    the best way possible.


    BinaryBasis Support Team

    I retorted by putting it to them that it was a deliberately scam by them and the came back to say the following in an e-mail:-
    (please be advised that we are now negotiating the solution for
    compensation with the broker and insurance company.
    Your Account Manager will contact you as soon as the compensation plan
    is elaborated.

    Kind regards,BinaryBasis Support Team)

    It was obvious that they flushed down the accounts that were soon to be due and decided to leave two accounts that are due in July 2017, which they have continued to “trade”.
    Below is a list of the accounts and details of same which i did invest.
    I have also attached documents to show evidence of my chats with Helen Costa and the transfers that i made.
    Apple -Options Account # 11816 -$5,000 Invested Apple -Options Account # 11865 –
    $5,000 Invested Apple -Options Account # 11866 -$5,000 Invested in my wife’s
    name(funds sent from my account). Discover-Options Account #11800 -$5,000 invested.
    Discover-Options Account #11801 -$5,000 invested in my wife’s name(funds sent from my
    account). Discover-Options Account #11809 -$5,000 invested. Returns on this was due on
    March 31, 2017, but account was wiped out on 24th March 2017 after 5 months of trading
    a managed account as per agreed contract. Discover-Options Account #11810 -$5,000
    invested in my wife’s name. Returns on this was due on March 31, 2017, but account was
    wiped out on 24th March 2017 after 5 months of trading a managed account as per agreed

  21. Just wanted to give a heads up about Binary Trading Experts as yet another scam. My investment had supposedly grown, even though I doubt there was ever a trade. When it came to withdrawing my funds I was told I would have to pay commissions, taxes, and open a new account before I would receive them. So $5,000 was wire transferred to India and I’m sure you can all guess the rest – no money, no return calls or e-mails. Wish I’d visited this site earlier.

  22. Hi Micheal,

    Is it Skyline Market and Binary Capital Markets are scam?

    Today I received a call from moneybacklawer (MBL) want to try to recover back my money from Skyline? Have you heard that? The above website seems to be new only 4 months period if you are really Professional Legal the domain name Lawyer also spelled as lawer? They asking me to provide me my login and password of Skyline Market then only able to access to my account to calculate how much should I get reclaim back my money? Is it real, seem like fraud again.

    Please advise.

    1. Hi KC. The thing is, even if you only wired a transfer for one of your payments, the charge back method won’t be applicable. For instance- if your deposited 5 times, and 2 of those deposits were done by wire, you wan’t be able to revoke them. Only 3 made by your credit card might be revocable. Thats why it’s not so good for traders like us. That is the explanation that I was given by my financial adviser. This is why I am considering opening a case with MBL.

  23. Go through your bank or Visa who will take it to their Resolution department. If you go through the binary company, you are WASTING YOUR TIME! Only problem you may face is that Visa has an expiration date when you can no longer file the complaint.

  24. hai micheal i interest in

    may i know is it legit or scam. becoz i try to find any scam review from google. but does not find anything about it

  25. Hey, I’ve been looking at ‘print my atm’ and was wondering if you think they are a good binary options course?? thanks

  27. Dear all
    I was trading with Tadwul investments broker, i deposited more than 10,000$ and i made a profit around 7000$, but they refused to let me withdrawal and nobody answer my phone or email, could you help me how to get back my money.

    1. I face the same with Option Rally. I have requested my withdrawal 2 years ago. In fact, I tried to request again 1 week ago amounting to USD2,200. Till now, nobody response too.

    1. I have a bad experience with them. I could not withdraw my deposit. I have been requesting for a refund but Jonathan Levin whose handling my account kept on cancelling it. Now, I could not access my trading account because they locked it. I regret not checking them out before depositing my money.

  28. Your being scammed.pull out now…contact your bank….reverse the transaction if you paid by credit card…tell your bank you did not receive the product or service being offered.the only safe way to go onto binary is with credit card.ALL binary options are scams….and dont believe this website either. Been there…done it…..i lost over 200 thousand thinking binarys were worth a look. Dont do it..learn your lesson like the millions of ppl ripped off from binary trading.ALL of them are scams
    Just like this website. All said

    All done. You were warned.

    1. unfortunately i have contacted my credit card company and they said they cant reverse the transaction that all they can do is launch a dispute. people beware of BINARY CORPORATE

    2. Aidan,

      How is this site a scam?
      There are strategies, only recommended brokers and good reviews I thought?
      Tell me what I am not seeing and how this site is a scam?
      Sorry to hear about all your losses as well.


  29. Hi
    Me again, is trade 24 a scam?
    Also could you please tell me wich company I can use in Asutralia
    Thanks very much

  30. Following a Facebook post , I contacted Jeremy Webb who is working for Digitron. Jeremy convinced me that their business is legitimate and they can make a profit of USD7000 for me if I invested USD1000 with them. After some thinking I decided to invest in their company so I created an account and tried to fund it via my credit card but the funds did not go through. Therefore they provided me the details of their official exchanger (as below) and advised that I needed to transfer money to him via western union.

    Name: Kevin J Clark
    Country: United States
    City:51 Kensington Manor
    New York

    As advised I transferred money via Western union in the hope that my account will get funded. However a few hours later I received an email from them saying that they cant activate my account unless I deposit either $3000 or $5000. I soon contacted Jeremy who confirmed that according to a new policy change the minimum to invest is $3000 or 5000. I insisted that I do not have any more money to invest with them and asked what I should do now. I also mentioned to Jeremy if the minimum to invest was $5000 then he should have told me that at the time of me depositing the money so that I did have a choice not to proceed. I requested Jeremy to refund the money I deposited. Jeremy said he would refund my money but the next minute he blocked me from his Facebook account. As for now my account with Digitron has not been funded nor my funds have been refunded to me.

    Following is the email that I received from DIGItron;

    Dear VXXXX
    We have received and confirmed your Western Union payment of $1000. However at this time, we only accept a minimum of $3000 or $5000 for Premium account openings. So your recently received funds are pending and awaiting approval (or decline)
    Please make an extra payment upgrade of $2000 or $4000 so we can fully activate your account. This will be credited to your DGI Options Trading account in a short while and thus enable you to join our strategic live market trading.
    Bear in mind we make upto profits of 400% on all investments.
    Capital insured, Profits Assured!
    We thank you for choosing DGI Options once again. Please find attached your contract documents and agreements, please read it carefully and supply required information and return when possible.
    Head of Accounts,

    1. Do you know his last name on Facebook or do you have a link to his FB profile or company page?
      Looks like you got scammed and it wouldn’t be the first time some asshole has done scams through Western Union. Make sure to file a compliant with a federal authority if you don’t hear back from him within a few days.


    1. SpotOnSignals is a total scam. After paying an initial fee, via Perfect Money, you will be asked to send several thousands of dollars to them, which they will then trade. You will be asked not to send this large payment to your trading account, but to them directly. Why? So they may steal your money! Don’t go anywhere near them. Scamming scum.

  31. I got scammed by BINARY BROKERZ my first broker and I got on very well and we made significant progress taking my initial investment of $3500 up $6250 in the first month, then he was so called promoted and this wizz kid took over and lost the lot in three trades over a 30 minute period, when I complained they said they were very sorry and would report him to his manager, now that is a joke if you like, they were probably in it togther

  32. PlusOption broker is a SCAM!
    They lure money from clients from different countries, showing readiness to help make money on invested capital.
    However, in the future, the company under no circumstances doesn’t give even deposited money using different pretexts. For example, the company declares that it gave bonuses (which the clientele does not warn about beforehand) which must be worked out.
    In my case, it turned out that the application for withdrawal of funds that I had formed was allegedly cancelled by me, which is an undisguised act of fraud on the part of the company.
    In all such cases, when trying to produce justified claims, the company’s employees simply stop communicating.
    I would be thakful to PO victims, who are ready to help me to punish these fraudsters.

  33. Brother Schimit won big time, but he didn’t want reveal if he has managed to withdraw his WON last Nov’16.
    Anyone hve infor about who trade for Schimid ?

    Boda Schimid , ala suite wa momey shark share itoe…. Euro 500,000.000

    1. I was scammed by Skylinemarkets. I have 2 companies, moneybacklawer and birmanglobal offering to try and get my money back any body know about them

      1. I might be able to help you for free. First step would be to contact your bank/credit card company and see if they are willing to help you initiate a charge back on your deposits.

      2. I’ve been contacted by Birman Global as well, with them saying that they can help me recover the money I lost to BinaryBook and Banc de Binary (roughly £23,000), but want be to pay them an up front fee of 10% of what I am looking to recover!

        Having been taken in twice already, I am now reluctant to hand over more of my hard-earned cash to someone I know nothing about.

        If you have any pointers on how I can go about recovering my money, I would be very grateful to hear them.

    Anyone trade thru Angela ….?
    VIP status with BIG WINS & due for withdrawal end of month, looking forwards !!!
    Anyone had good experience …
    please share …, saritha waiting for me at Jost Van Dyke, Carribean

  35. Sorry to hear that… all Binary Options are scammers…remember that all money invested with them do not go out to be invested in any financie instruments…in each trading that you win…they’re losing!! That’s the reality my friend!!

  36. Please add IVORYOPTIONS and SECUREDOPTIONS to the long list of scammers.
    Absolute fraud, these ones. Just in to steal. They’ll use all the tricks and you’ll be wiped out flat.
    And what’s more, they aren’t registered with any reputable financial standards organisation, so they’ll get away with scamming you. Absolutely no accountability, no one to hold, only all your money to lose.
    Pure, simple, plain language.

  37. LOOK-OUT! 20/20 Binary has scammed me. Now, they have changed their name to:

    They emailed me to tell me about the new website. However, none of my trading history was included in the new website. They don’t want anyone to know bout the bad trades they were making. Without the history migrating to the new site, no one can see what a scam they are!

  38. Hi Michael,

  45. I also invested with Tenoption. at first it was small very quick trades of $100 or so. I decided to pull out and asked for a withdrawal. I received a confirmation email on my request then the next day all my money was invested in chunks of $5000 and tied up for six months. I don’t think there is a chance of ever seeing anything back from them

    what are they like anyone know?

  47. Hi All,

    there’s another company I would like to comment about: Raisen Haus Ltd. aboslutely no info online, but I gave them a chance and just like that my investment was all gone, in a matter of weeks, they kept making excuses, not answering my calls nor emails. I’ve managed to find other persons online with the same problem. from my very limited investigation, I have managed to find out that this company works under several names:
    -Raisen Haus Ltd. (CFD “Broker”)
    -Sentinel1973 (CFD “Broker”)
    -Equite (“I.B.”)

    Equite acts as the intermediary broker, and is based out of Mexico. the actual “brokers” are supposedly registered in New Zealand, Switzerland and UAE but I think they are also registered and based out of Mexico.
    it is a complete scam, do not sign up with these companies. I’m trying to spread the word, as I mentioned not a lot of info on the net on these guys.



    1. I’m in Canada
      Stay away from Binary…
      Was investing with “Option888”
      Since Oct /16 They slowly reeled me in for 39k us
      When I tried to get some out when my account reached 62k with trades And bonuses. First they wanted one more trade when they new I wanted some money back. It was like this….I give them 10k more then do a Protective trade with my entire Ballance. They said I could not loose, it was a protected trade they said and could gain much more. Turns out the trade didn’t do well so then they added a total of money bonus to the account which infact when you click on the withdrawl in your account it says it will dissolve all your bonus value out first before you can withdraw. Well this is the scam once they add a bonus equivelent to your actual Ballance it dissolves all your Ballance meaning you just lost all your money… they are SCAMMERS… then there are the scammers that want you to give them money to get your money back.
      I would like to hear of some of those people.

  48. but I recomend no open account on any no regulate broker
    possible to call to his service hosting and say abut froud money hi stop web
    if you have proved .

    I not English well but i help and advise much

      1. Hi afraid I got involved is a option scam ! The so called brokerage is you have any info. on them.

          1. I believe my father has been involved in a scam with this investment firm. Were you able to find anything out since 3/2? We are just being made aware of it and we need to know what steps we need to talk. Please share. Thanks –

  49. Hi Mike thanks for the info.
    Is there anything that works in Canada?
    What about united trading network I see your review is good for that.
    Thanks Mike regards James.

  50. Thanks for the info Mike about not using auto traders in Canada because I have had about 5 and none worked.
    Will your (Mikes auto trader) work because it is a signal provider and over the last couple of years I have been trying binary options you and your team are the only reliable source I have come across.
    Thanks Mike God bless.

  51. You can still work on a chargeback from your Visa company. I got one back from Tr Binary Iption and am working on chargeback from 53Options. Both HUGE SCAMMERS!!

  52. Has anyone come across an organization calling itself MAGNUM TRADES. Their representative, Steve Abraham approached me trying to get me to sign up, but I can’t find any info on them, other than the website he directed me to. After he approached me and I refused, I was suddenly approached by two other people claiming that it was a “great company” and they had had tremendous success with them. Abraham says that they are registered with CySEC and he sent me a certificate of “proof.” However I can’t find their listing with CySEC.

      1. Even if they were regulated, I still got cheated by them! That’s how good they are at making money by taking your money away! Simple rules: Listen, don’t put your money in other people’s hands! Especially Options! Whatever options trading. End of story! Why we need to burn our money to prove that they’re scammers, it’s because they are really good at scamming, cheating, bullshitting, lying, etc….to make our heart melt to the sound of promises they can make for us. It stops there, once you put in your hard earned money, it’s gone! Not only that, along comes the daily calls and fake trading, wassaps, skype, every weekdays! They trade making more money in your account and make you believe that it really works! Then they advise that you cannot take out your money due to the trades, and needs you to add in more investments! This is the only time and best opportunity and you will lose out making so much money you will ever see! This is where they get more of your money and it keeps on going, asking you to add more money and pushing you for more and more…..and finally, you have your stop point, you cannot add in any more money, they ask you to borrow it from your banks, credit cards, borrow from friends, then you will know, this person sounds suspicious…and once you finally convinced them that you cannot put in any more money (after many arguments!…they’re very persuasive & insist!) because you’re totally dried up, and you want to withdraw some money back….they will strike! First they will delay your withdrawals for few days. Then they will trade off all your monies in your bank. You will not be able to wassap that person, (in my case for CT Option was this guy by the name of ‘Benjamin Sunday’). Then you can’t skype them, nor get any replies. You send long emails complaining and no responses. Send more reminder emails, also same, no responses…. You got it! Congratulations! You’ve officially joined our ranks of being ‘CONNED’! …duped, scammed, cheated, ….all the same, you will never get to see your money back, and you also cannot vent your frustration or anger to them….so sit back, eat your pop corn, and re-thinnk how to start again, to make more of your hard earned money back! Don’t give up in life, as you can see, there many of us here that got cheated/scammed but still alive to talk about it…what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger!

  53. TRADORAX a scam in sheep’s clothing…
    Mr. Ryan Collins | VP Financial advisor VIP Department.

    They were traders on Neo2 when i installed the software.
    They just went into my bank account and emptied it without my knowledge.
    How they went about it i don’t know with pin an all security is beyond me…
    But my bank reimbursed me the total us, but that it was so easy – I’m chocked!

    So not ONLY did they literately steal my money they have now also been giving my personal info out. So i know i get weird calls from al kind of brokers telling me that i have been filling out forms.

    These brokers are them who are giving honest brokers a bad name, because as i see, they are still there doing there “stunts” on customers without any recursions.

    But Mike you made a god software just impossible to keep dishonest brokers from it, to bad.

    Regards John


  54. Watch out for the following two thieving ” brokers “. First, ATOS LIMITED UK in the person of Joey Keller and IBM Markets in the person of Julian Silva. I lost my money and they seem to have disappeared. Does anyone have any information about these dishonest crooks ?

    1. Ive had emails from that Silva name. Has any one heard of Aaron Smiht? And how to find him? He will answer to me and I will travel from Australia and deal with his dead beat rip off ass

  55. Hey Mike, can you put the black listed trading companies in a table form and in alphabetical order so it is easy for us to search these scammers! Add CT Options in. A bunch of scammers! And really wasted money and time on them! They will call me daily and took away a lot of my time doing false tradings and keep asking me to top up for better trades, and finally I gave up putting in any money after many arguments, they screwed my account of USD62K to USD12 bucks in 30 mins! I had a hard time explaining to my wife where our life savings went to…

  56. I have been scammed by CT Options. Lost more than USD20K. But managed to get back half my money from the credit card dispute. Have made my life hell because of this! Made police reports and sending emails to credit card fraud department to prove. Learned my lesson, no fast buck in this world! Have to start all over to work my money back!

    1. You are so right! After 12 months of being given the run around and taking all my money and filling my head with lies this is what I have learned. ALL of these so called Expert Traders couldn’t pick a seat at the movies. Of all the trades made 80% lost. I believe they have very little money of their own. They coerce all their clients into adding more money to become VIP clients with false promises of profits, take the money and trade as they see fit and occasionally make profit (if you win they win, if the trades lose only you lose). When they lose almost all your money and you decide to withdraw remaining funds they always have some excuse why that cannot happen, even if it is totally yours and not encumbered by bonuses. Their ultimate goal is to get as many people in the world as they can to send money so they have plenty of funds to gamble with to make a living for themselves, leaving clients to hold the bag for ALL the losses. If enough people fall for this then any winnings mean they are in front and they just keep going until you have nothing left and they move to the next sucker. I am with Inside Option who took $100,000 from my account, leaving $82,000 remaining, and traded on their own group platform which I could never see. They kept saying I had profits but never transferred that to my visible account. All I see on the official platform is the withdrawals they made. End of story. After fobbing me off for months when I requested that I be able to see what was happening to my money, they finally said everything was going to lose because of the Brexit disaster and their insurance crashed, telling me if I wanted to get the remaining $82,000 in my account I would have to send $50,000 so they could trade out of the situation. Apparently somehow they forced me into the trading bonus obligation without my permission. As it stands now that money is still in my account, frozen, and I will never be able to get it out. EVER.
      Also I have had many many issues with Big Option with them making reckless trades and losing almost the lot. With both companies I emphasised from the beginning that I never would accept a bonus and when BO deposited $15,000 in my account I made them remove it because I did not need the 50 x trading option. I now have $6000 left there, mine free and clear, and they now have new rules saying I have to keep trading because if they let everyone take their money out they would be bankrupt! Beat that! So the end story is that no one EVER gets any money out of this. Occasionally they will send a couple of thousand dollars for “goodwill” so you will think they are genuine but their ultimate goal is to use other people’s money to make a living for themselves. You even see your account growing for a time then next time you look it is almost all gone.
      I wish I could tell everyone on the world that ALL these trading sites are rorts and you should never get involved. I was foolish enough to believe I would make some money and invested my independence. Now it is all gone and I cannot believe I fell for it. All my life I have hated gambling and losing money. This last year it was like I was hypnotised and floating through my life. At least it was my own money and I never used our family finances. I don’t think I will ever forgive myself and it has put me in a very perilous state. God bless everyone and PLEASE keep your money and realise that there is really no such thing as a free lunch!!!! We all have to earn our own money. It is the only way. Thanks for reading June J

      1. hey, thanks for your review. i just had the same happen to me. Thinking i would never get scammed. but i did. karma will get them my friend.
        They took money from my visa without my approval, i really hope visa will come to the party and refund money to me. But very much sought it.

  57. I have come across the people from CTI Options. They deal in binary options and say they are based in London. They open a trial account from USD 250 and say they give returns upto 30%.

    Is it a scam? Can someone please find out.

  58. All this binary options are scams, they got no soul even taking money from pensioners, I lost $2250 US and did not get a cent back, they getting a person to put positive feedbacks on there web. but in the meanwhile they ripping people off AA option a big one, SO BE AWARE, don’t loose your money.

  59. I have same problem as Christie depositing $10,000 with a $30,000 BONUS. Starting with $40,000 it took a broker with cAMBRRIDGE CAPITOL about a year to FRITTER away 30,000, and then left me hi-dry, not returning call’s etc, not being able to get a deposit refund. I would never have taken the BONUS if I knew it would freeze my money. Christy n mentioned he got ALL his money back. How do I do the same ??

  60. Anyone had recent dealings with OptionsXO? I’ve had some losses, but cleared bonus wager and have some funds to withdraw, want to know how easy or difficult this is going to be. They’ve had a bad rep from a year or two back…

  61. Stay away from anything that has anything to do with Greymountain Management. Stay away from them with a 10 foot pole. I would say that some of the binary option companies listed here on this page were built by Greymountain Management.
    I was lucky to receive my money back after HOUNDING Greymountain Mgt and Porter Finance, the broker. Everyone is located in Israel, even Greymountain Mgt, even though when you call, Danielle Earle, will answer the phone with a very thick Irish accent. They really cover their tracks.
    From the looks of it, looks like a site built by Greymountain Mgt. (Do not confuse with Greymountain in the USA, they are a legitimate company, please.) Greymountain Mtg. has a certain style of building a website as they White Label websites, so they will all look alike, physically.
    Thank you,

  62. I invested with rbinary Dec 2015, I successfully made one small withdrawl and several months later reinvested. When I tried to get my money out. Despite several cease trading requests. (They will just change your password and trade until their heart is content or the money is gone). The last time I requested a withdrawl of funds due to severe losses $60,000 + in a matter of days a bunch of trades closed and the account was at $80000+ I told the broker Frank Anderson to cease trading that I could not afford to lose anymore money. I changed my password, they changed it one day and proceeded to make 79 trades in order to bring the account to $105.00. They then put in an $80,000 BONUS which they continued to trade of course under my name but naturally I will never see one more cent. I tried to log in today just to see what they have been up to but can no longer even log into the account. That is my story, I suggest everyone stay far away from

  63. Hi Michael,

    I can’t seem to find anything here about Stern Options as a trader or indeed The Brit Method as a robot software. My experience with them is to say the least not great. I have placed £500 so far and they managed to lose it all. when I wanted to place a withdrawal for £250, they said that it takes 48 hours to put a stop on the robot, although they can started straight away in seconds!, and the refund takes up to 10 working days. Unfortunately they have traded in the first day after I made my request and lost some of the money but they have stopped after that. Now I am waiting for my withdrawal but it seems to be hard work in getting my money back. So the question is – do you know anything about any of these two, in particular the Stern Options please? Many thanks.

    1. I have been waiting 18 days for a withdrawal, will need to go to my bank to make a charge-back on my Visa card!

      Thanks Mike great job keep it up.
      Regards James

    Capital Bank Markets is a SCAM-broker. This is an instance why traders should stay away from Capital Bank Markets.
    I have a horrible nerve-breaking experience with CBM. Funding a trading account with $300 through a CBM affiliates-signals-product-vendor, whom I suspect must be CBM’s comrade-in-scam, the product failed to work as expected.
    Trying the signal product on another brokers demo platform and discovered it didn’t work as expected, I did not start to trade on CBM trading platform.
    Meanwhile, the signals system has been deactivated by the vendor. Then, I requested for a withdrawal of my deposited fund but Capital Bank Markets did not respond neither to my ID-documents submission nor act on my withdrawal request in the last ten (10) weeks.
    They are yet to respond to any of my several ‘reminder-emails’ as well.
    This ought to be a pure refund case but they are deviant to refund my money. No response to calls or emails!.
    My advice to fellow traders is to stay away from Capital Bank Markets brokers. Once they have your money, they ‘ll ignore your emails and calls. Be warned!!

  67. GMOPTION is a scam, to date they have not stopped me retrieve obtained profits, these profits were due to the movements that I made, the broker that I was assigned (Jessy Lee) the only thing that did is to ask me for more investment, every time you towards some movement in my mind it was to lose money.

    Not Invest with them are SWINDLERS

    1. Has anyone ever had a issues with allgotrade? Yet they claim that if you don’t take their bonus then you can withdraw your money anytime ,but they are lie they try get more money from you only .And then I try to withdraw half of the fund from profits then they reject my withdraw saying that I don’t have enough money to withdraw instead I should add more money instead of withdraw they refused to process the withdraw they kept lie to me that it is already processing that I should get my money soon ,but it never happened then I call them from Skype and they said maybe my bank is blocking my card that is why the money is not getting through, but, when I sign back into my account the money still sit in the account they were lying to me the whole time and then after a month later they finally used all the money from the account trade for for four month long after that they just shut down the website . I think most of this binary options are all scam.

  68. Hi
    I see OptionsXO on your avoid list and know they had bad reviews from around 2014. But since then reviews seem a lot better on other sites, do you still consider a scam?

  69. Hello, may you check if the Capital Market Banc is a scam? All that would pop out in the net is the Capital Bank Markets, which they say is a scam company. I’d really be grateful for your immediate reply.

      1. You lost funds on Binary options your chances of getting them back are very low ,If you used a credit card go to your bank and explain ,they will assist in recovery if you used wire transfer your only hope is consult an experienced lawyer one in Israel as that where most these scammers operate from ,good luck and stay away from binary options they are crooked you never beat them ,The Israel govt will not allow binary options traded in Israel but it is ok to scam the Rest of the world ,nice people Warning stay away from Binary Options They are rotten to the core

  70. Do not take bonus offers from your broker, this is how they manipulate you. I lost thousands already, they thought they were untouchable, no sir! I got every last cent back.

    1. Hi how did you get your money back which you lost? I am looking for a lawyer who can help to get my losses back from 23traders .. has anyone traded with them?

    2. Hey Christie

      Can I ask you how you got your money back ? Just curious to know as I have recently been scammed by another company !

  71. For some people asking for IQ option,
    i would like to explain them in short that don’t go for it,
    it is a freaking scam.
    Thats it.


    1. Hi Frank, In reference to Option Rally, the company is synced with many scam auto-traders which basically makes them part of it in my opinion. It’s possible that if you trade directly with them. I apologize for the delayed response, I haven’t been around for a few weeks.

  72. hi , i with optionrally is scam …about the bonus ..never tell the truth ..i put in around usd 200 + 100 bonus .they final said need to win until usd 3000 in order to withdraw .. they have broker teach you ,, they will give sppeacially offer ..have change to win big .finally ask me to invest more and more

    1. Yes, they are illicit brokers, scammed my USD20000 . Don’t know how to retrieve the money. Please if any one knows the way, let me know

  73. Hi Michael!
    I’m already in your FB group and I’m with TopOption, but now I’m looking for a broker with $1 trade amount (to practice more), that’s EU regulated. I heard about IQ Options. Are they reliable?

  74. Mike, I have a question I hopr you could answer. I wanted to try your program out (Mike’s Auto Trader) and your website directed me to PlusOption for a broker. Before I sign with them, are they regulated and if so, who are they regulated with or under, as my situation is different than others,as I am an American citizen living in Germany legally for 13 years.

  75. Hi Michael,

    I am just wondering why you claim interactive option is a scam broker, as it is a fully EU regulated option broker with the CYSEC, MIFID compliant, Please clarify




  77. Stay away from TITAN TRADE guys, started with $250 as stated that was the min, they made the first trade which i won, next night the pressure was on to invest more, got another $2500 off me, than said to take the bonus and they would match what i put in, which i did, then i received one call a week telling me what trades to take and guiding me through the process, my account went to $13000, then more calls telling me to invest more, telling me to increase my credit card limit or get a personal loan, when i told them i couldn’t i was yelled at and told they had invested to much money in me as they had to pay the adviser and i needed to invest more, i told them i’d see what i could do, over the next few nights i received more calls asking how i went with the loans, I advised no good, he went off at me again saying he has increased my account from $2750 to $13000 and i needed to put more money in. I’d had enough of his pressure and abuse. I applied for a withdrawal after hanging up, the next night he called back saying he had to place more trades to allow me to withdrawal because of the bonus he gave me, stupid me said ok thinking this was the only way i’d get my money back. He Matthew Davis of titan trade took the lot. not a cent left in my account.

  78. Fellow traders Mr Arseney Volkov is scam artist. He is truly a scammer and people should be aware of his scamming tricks. A friend has been scammed thousands of dollars by him using LTMC (linkmytradecalculator) and Spot On Signals, fictitious companies, he claimed were based in US and UK respectively. Mr Volkov told my friend he has deposited money on his behalf for Spot On Signals to trade for him for 2 weeks after which he will receive a check from Spot On Signals. My friend received a Citibank official check, which was confirmed by Citibank that it was a fake check, after the 2 weeks with instructions to deposit 10% of the face value of the check before the check will be cleared by the Citigroup. Mr Arseney Volkov will create the impression that he wants you to achieve financial freedom to scam you. All his so called students who are writing good reviews about him are all scammers.

  79. Please I need to know about one two trade, I’m a student and I can’t risk some money to scams. I would like a reply to my Email. Thanks

  80. I was cheated by a binary options company called VIPOPTIONS. The trader dealing with me was Ms.ROSE CAMPBELL. She assured me that it is insured trade and I transferred $13,500 online. After 2 weeks, she told that the money was lost. When I questioned her how it was lost in an insured trade, she simply said it is rare but it happens sometimes. All the time she assured me that there is no chance of losing money in insured trade and then suddenly said it is lost. Clearly she CHEATED ME! I have all the emails exchanged with her as proof of her assurances. I don’t know where I can register a complaint. Can someone please advise?

  81. The AAOption senior broker convinced me to hold off on withdraw of funds until he could show me what he could do for me. He covered his loss by giving me a bonus and now for 5 months of calls and written requests to remove the bonus and put the funds on my credit card… I’m told someone will call you, or they’ll look into it but no one calls and it just keeps going on and on…

  82. payed by credit card they went in to my account using my card and drew alot off money 3 weeks ago i did not give permision for them to do that all up im 150k scamed off me i cant walk very well leg arms are no good i need the money back but dont no what to do be great if you could help me

    1. Trent im also with the same problem. They took $250 USD from my account and promised wikitrader software will acheive $7250 perday guaranteed and I will have my disastrous life turn around. Ive lost my house my son and partner Julie and thet ignore my communication to them they promised me 150%on a deposit of $250 USD I got $50 that’s it. They have since attempted to steal money many times via my credit card and im owed $ nearly $400000 can anyone help with how I can get my hands on money and there throats

  83. hello everyone,

    new scam broker alert 365 Binary Options they are part of global trader 365 hence the similar name 365. they have just recently begun trading. I have seen a few bad comments however a lot of these reviews companies are paid by the brokers to remove comments hence very difficult to find the comments again so i suggest you screenshot them. once you sign up to this company they will begin calling you. first they want to teach you how to use the platform so they want access to your computer (at this point they put a virus on your computer to steal all your details) be careful. once they teach you they offer a bonus once you say no they say ok thats fine for the first day or two. then they tell you to deposit more money, if you tell them you have no money they still try to apply a transaction without your consent and knowledge even without you giving them your card details some how they have your card details from they computer virus on your computer. money leave your account without you knowing. when you go onto your trading account there is extra money offcourse which is yours. at this point you ask them to withdraw they want all your personal information and copies of you ID etc…. without this you cant withdraw. before even sending them your money gets lost into trades which you havent even taken the agent takes them loses the trades and says it was protected so i can refund the money BONUS form !!!! so now your stuck and say good bye to your money they took over 20k from my account without me knowing made up fake paper work saying i signed for this but won the case in the end through the bank… this company is on the loose for a scam be careful!!!

  84. I found it hard to find a decent broker most of them are scams I dont even mean with making profits I mean not being able to withdraw. I found a broker called british options and I dont have any of these problems.

  85. Hi

    Can anyone tell me if “The Mockingbird Method” is the real deal or a scam? Also the broker they deal with: RB Options? I have my doubts!

  86. Hello Michael, I would like to warn everyone of the scam broker called ICI or, they will trade your money for you using risk management and will not risk more than 5% of your account value, I believe the trades are fake trades, my account more than doubled in less than one month and then I deposited a larger amount and again my account more than doubled in less than one month. Then they convince you to deposit larger amounts by wire transfer and later when you want to withdrawl money from your account they invest all of your money into a single long term trade without your permission so that you cant withdrawl any money out of your account, this is a scam broker, please warn everyone about them, other investors are being scammed the same way I was scammed, I have proof anyone would like to see

  87. I have discovered that Porter Finance is manipulating the data on their platform. I was trading the DOW index while watching one of the financial channels on TV. I noticed that the market quote on TV was 50 to 70 points difference on the TV banner. I called my broker about this he told me not to trust the chart or the data on the platform. I checked with another binary broker and he confirmed that if Porter Finances provides a data feed it should be in sync. Take my advice and take your business somewhere else. If you trade on this sites platform you are wasting you time. The data feed was from Fox Business Channel here in the USA

  88. Great list, thanks for sharing all blacklisted companies, I wonder how is possible that some brokers are regulated by official regulators and they are still scamming and there is no trader protection.

    1. Hi Carl, I received two complaints in the last 3 months. I am not sure what to make of it. Did you test it out? I am not sure yet but I know it’s probably not a high performing service either way.

  89. Hi,
    Thank you for a wonderful job you are doing to help others and would have really helped if i found you before i lost money. I just have a doubt as i see “Gold Digger” in your blacklist page. And when i goto the best trading signal page i get “Gold Digger” for the best app.

    Thanks & Regards
    Renjith Ravindran

    1. Hi Renjith, I blacklisted the software right when it came out in order to point people to the review on Watchdog for the purpose of getting some feedback. Ever since the software came out, many members have testified and sent over performance results indicating that Gold Digger is working, especially for the commodity signals. They also have a fully automated trading feature that is available for most member. I apologize for the confusion. I will still leave them on my blacklist for a few more days in order to see if someone will step forward and report a negative experience because so far it’s not the case.

  90. Warning about 500option, I try to withdraw money and my first request was 6 september, it’s now 11 october and stil not received a dime. If I call or email them they say it’s still pending and the financial department has to review it and they can do nothing about it. There are a lot of withdrawals so they are very very busy is the same answer over and over again. If I ask them to connect me with the financial department they say they can’t. Stay away from this broker, I had some other issues with them before.

  91. Agreed with Jerry. OPTION.FM is totally a scam. I applied to its ProfitReplicator (also a scam, you will lose money with money), but I ended up being caught by a representative to who lied and I lost 3500USD with him. He promised the huge profit. I experienced with Dave Serrano (Account Manager). I lost 3500USD. He asked me to press Double Up 9 times without explaining what it was and he left during the session. Please stay away from Option FM. I am waiting for the result from the bank if I won the Depute Letter process to get money back. Finger crossed for me. I wish everyone read this before they choose binary option.

  92. Keep clear of OPTION.FM. SCAM ….. Head account manager Barry Alanis could not pick a winner in a one horse race. Uses underhanded tactics, and LIES to get you to inject funds into your account. My advice steer clear.

  93. hmmm mike as i said yesterday i have a uk options account, not had any probs at all with them? i dont no what happen langwang and cornshaft? but mybe you need to talk to keith from options ex he has a account with them {uk options}
    i dont think they should be black listed just yet? but i guess thats up 2 u? i will just say i have had a uk options account since march 2015 made 4 withdraws got money no probs money from trades placed with your face book groups help,cheers have a great day

    1. Keith is a legit guy and the two individuals posted comments from the same exact IP, and they also tried to post about 6 comments with threats and accusations that I am collaborating with UKoptions. Since they didn’t email me any evidence as I requested I am going to remove UKoptions from my blacklist. I gave this individual an opportunity but it can also be competition, you never know. If anyone has real feedback on UKoptions, email it to me and show me evidence before you ask me to blacklist a broker. Thank you Marc!

  94. Hi Michael, thank you for blacklisting UK Options. You have just saved a lot of money for a lot of would-be victims. I sent an email to the email address provided by you above, requiring confidentiality guarantee before providing you with my Skype exchanges with the leader of the pack, but have not heard from you in response as yet. Anyway, I’ve decided to send you the screenshots of those exchanges, having faith in your integrity.

  95. Hi Michael, I read some very informative comments on how the scam broker UK Options operates, but unfortunately those useful comments, which can save many of your readers from being scammed, were taken off in a hurry. Can you tell me why?

    1. I already approved tons of your comments on many posts all over my site on UKOptions, I don’t approve all comments, especially repeat comments. I can get flagged for duplicate content by Google and I have a feeling that you posted the same exact words all over the Internet.. so I am sure that your case was heard. Of course I do work with some brokers, but I only work directly with brokers I trust, such as Topoption and Anyoption, brokers with EU regulations and a good reputation. Most brokers in this industry are gambling scams and I never denied it, on the contrary, I spend a lot of time warning traders of potential risks. Email me at if anyone wants to debate any topic with me, but if you keep posting comments over and over, I am not going to approve it. Just look at my top 5 brokers on the side if you are interested to know which brokers I support.

  96. I made a withdrawel of GBP500 from my account with FTrade. Just over half of it arrived in my account.FTrade tried to tell me that my bank was at fault in the conversion from GBP to ZAR. I got our Banking Ombudsman involved and they found proof that FTrade made the deposit in ZAR not GBP. Although they claim to have offices in London and Antigua they are not regulated in either country so bye-bye GBP200. FTrade has a whole lot of front men that promise to sort out the problem-nothing ever gets done. I can only conclude that this is their modus operandi for stealing money deposited with them

  97. Thank you very much Con for your invaluable information about UK Options. One of my friends has just been robbed by these scoundrels, and I stopped another friend and myself from falling into the same trap set by these mob of fraudulent thieves, after reading your posting here. So readers beware, stay well away from UK Options; whatever deposits you make with them, I can guarantee that you will NEVER get a cent back.

  98. “without prejudice” – Well that was a great experience… They are good at telling you how good they are, how successful they are with their trading (claims of 90% through normal trading and 95% successful with special event trading). They tell you the only people that don’t make money with their system, don’t follow their instructions or are gamblers (also that they kick these people out because they are loosing also “rboptions” money). Let me say I followed their instructions last count I think 15 trades, they gave me about 14 losers. They promise that trades are insured and that they do this because their system is so successful that they loose so few trades, that it gives traders confidence. They insure trades but then want to after the fact, say they do not insure all trades. I started my trading with Adam Devine, this is where almost all loosing trades suggestions originated. He then passed me to Jack Woods to supposedly recover the file (he proceeded to give me one winner and one looser, net position backwards again). Adam Devine then tells me they will slowly recover the file again (two of these trades, the only times I didn’t follow their instruction (I halved the suggested investments, lucky they were both losers). When he finished there was $15 left in my account, then he puts me in-touch with Joseph Wolf (Head Broker). Joseph then gives me the pitch about investing more money, so they can recover the position yet again!! How much more would you invest with losers with a track history like this, seriously?? I sent them an email asking for clarification a week ago, asking if this was nothing but a scam? This I got no reply to, I phoned today as a follow up to speak to Joseph to seek clarification (left a message and Adam phoned back) I could hear Joseph in the background saying he was too busy to speak to me. Clearly they have already moved on to the next sucker!! I asked at the end of the call, so I guess when I complain you will say “Oh he was a gambler and didn’t follow instruction so we kicked him out!!” Guess they work on the basis that they trade you to a looser, send to the next trader (they become a looser), pass them on to the next looser!! – Don’t believe them!! RBOptions=Rubishoptions

  99. I wish to draw your readers’ attention to one of the biggest scams under the sun: UK Options. What they do is to lure you initially with a bot they boast to have a success rate over 85%. However, in actual fact it does nothing more than deducting a fixed amount from your account on a daily basis, without any trading records whatsoever. Then their “owner” will step in offering to help you to trade successfully. If you accept his help, he’ll reset your password without your prior knowledge and consent, so that he can trade for you. You don’t have to be a genius to guess correctly the outcome of his “help”. So keep a wide berth from this mob of scammers, and don’t say I haven’t warned you.

  100. Last week I started looking into Binary Options. I have since been bombarded by three companies: Rock The Stock, The Aussie Method and HFT Shield. I know HFT Shield was just formed last month. But do you anything on any of them? I’m getting at least an email a day from them asking me to subscribe.

    1. Hi Phoenix, I am not really familiar with this company. If anyone has any feedback let me know. Based on Alexa it seems like a fairly new website. I can’t really tell you more since I never received any feedback via email or on any of my blogs concerning BossFin. Mike

  101. Stay away from AutoProfitReplication and OptionFM. I signed with AutoProfitReplication and deposited $250 with OptionFM. Once I deposited I was caught by a broker (not sure if he is) the one promised me that he will help with training and give bonus and make me a lot of money. That’s all. He convinced me to take money from Credit Card 3500. He made me lost in 2 days. He was real scammer, no training, only control, persuading to deposit more and more. Please stay away.

  102. May fair options is a scam. Most of you might assume this is a hoax and we just had a minor bad experience with Mayfair options but they have a particular method of fraudulent activities.
    The procedure goes like this…you will receive a call from Mayfair options if you had enquired. Now do expect a call from a guy with the most charming voice and who is a well-trained sales associate. He will manage to talk you into depositing 1000 USD and we frustrated with our 9 to 6 jobs would like to make a little extra money would not hesitate to go ahead with it. After all the promises and good hope the moment the amount has been transferred you will never hear from them again. Their websites are shut down, no response to telephone calls and this goes on for a month or so. Finally we decided to speak to the bank to report a fraudulent transaction and then do expect a call from Mayfair informing us that we have been trading actively though we haven’t. The account gets blocked somehow and then the bank calls stating that we have been trading actively and with PROOF of all transactions. Mayfair doesn’t realize that this 1000 USD that was deposited was not an easy form of income and they would have to face the consequences for their actions.

    This is for those who would like to take a break and make an extra buck well I guess we should just stick to doing it the right way. After all if there’s no pain there’s no gain.

  103. Be warned about FX Profit Boom. It is extremely hard to learn and use, especially for newbies, contrary to their claim that anyone, including beginners with no trading experience, can use it. Also, if you are thinking of getting a refund, forget about it, because you’ll never get a red cent back despite their 100% money back guarantee. So take my warning and stay away from this mob.

  104. I want to alert your readers about one of the worst, lowest, most unscrupulous late- comer scammers by the name of FX Profit Boom. It makes grossly exaggerated claims regarding the easiness to learn and use it, the huge profit it will rake within minutes after purchasing its package, which even someone with no computer or technical knowledge whatsoever can master. Contrary to these wild claims seen in Tanthan Jackson’s glary, cheap and gaudy promotional materials, the fact of the matter is that the instructions in the package are packed with complicated charts, and incomprehensible instructions, which no average person could understand, and worse still, I can’t even open his files. The worst part is that there is no chatting platform, telephone number anywhere to be found on their website, except an email address. However, when I wrote to them for help I never got a single word in return, and I found out later from my service provider that the email address couldn’t be reached. So it’ll be a waste of time to request a refund, because your email asking for refund will never reach them! I don’t know who this Tanthan Jackson is, despite those unsubstantiated credentials, but to me he would be one of the lowest low-life scammers. So warn your readers to keep a clear berth from this predictor. Once you have paid the first subscription cost, he would use those cheap second-hand car salesman tricks to pressure you into buying more expensive packages. I can assure you that whatever money you pay him, YOU WILL NEVER GET A RED CENT BACK!

  105. Any reason have you removed Yesoption from Recommended Brokers list and I’m surprised to see Interactive option where the customer support is next to nil.

    1. Hi Anhjan, Interactiveoption is EU regulated and they are perfectly fine, I admit they have a terrible verification process and they are pushy with deposits.. they are not on my top 5 let’s put it this way. As for YESoption, thank you for reminding me because I have to erase some other reviews concerning this broker, just yesterday I receieved a serious email from someone who’s working on a case with the UK police relating to YESoption and money laundering activities.. I am not sure who to believe, but I don’t want to be involved with an unregulated company that’s being investigated.. I told the person who emailed me that I can care less about him or YESoption, but either way I decided to remove them. If YESoption can present be with contradicting info I might avoid blacklisting them but I will not be promoting them anymore. My focus is on my top 5 brokers and by the way, Interactiveoptions (even though they are EU regulated) are not on this list.

  106. How are they a scam,Peter, you can’t make statements like you have, unless you elaborate your thoughts and experiences.As for I don’t think it is a scam, obviously these guys are going to be recommending Forex Steam and others, too, they need to make their money, somehow, but, just because they have trialled these, doesn’t necessarily mean that you, or I will have the same results.I personally make my own decision, regardless of what these guys, or any other software creator/purveyor claims.The problem with many software packages is they very often limit the pairs and/or commodities you may choose from, and most get at you by setting minimum trade/lot sizes to $25 in the case of Binary Options.However, given the above, and in the case of, personal experience, I hesitate, when you say they are a scam!!

  107. what about this on
    Binarny Brain Wave, Binary Options Bullet and Binary Today are owned by the same guy, John kane.
    Stay away from that site, and is also his side, its a scam

  108. RBOptions? should be here too. They have very agressive sales persons/brokers. First there is this bonus trap. They want you to quickly deposit money and they give this “bonus”. Then you are signed for *20 turnover which gives them good time to market deposits for you.

    If you or them lose money (if you they blame you for losing comissions) and try to make you feel bad for them. They will ask more for “COVER LOSSES”. If you don’t lose they can give wrong signals for you and ask more money.

    They will give you at first few good signals, after that they hold back only for asking more deposits to get something “SPECIAL” signals.

    No one as I know has ever been able to withdrawal as much money than they deposited.

    Conclusion it is scam

  109. Hello, Michael! This is the first time i’m leaving a comment here. I really would like to thank you for your efforts in educating newcomers and helping us all avoid the scammers that srping up like mushrooms after the rain, – your channel rocks, your unique facebook signals group is simply amazing, i’ve never seen so many consistent itms. It’s great and i feel lucky to have found you on the internet. Thank you =)

  110. Thank you Mike, at least I know that everybody who reads your blogs and blacklisted brokers will be safe from GTI Markets clutches now. Appreciated.

  111. Hi Michael, I would love to request you please add GTI to your Black List of traders, but all I can give you is a personal actual happening of fraud to the tune of Eur22,000 from my account with them. I know you would 1st need to check them out, but they will be great….until your 1st withdrawal request, by then it’s too late, kiss whatever funds you had goodbye. All I can give is a lot of documentation as proof they are fraudulent. Oh, and not regulated. May I send documentation to email?

    1. I trust you Les, you are also not the first one to complain, it’s about time! Avoid GTI Markets everyone!

  112. thank you mike for taking your time and resources to make sure that we are safe and we can trade peacefully, keep on doing what you do best.

  113. May I ask you if Bank De Binary can be trusted? from what I have hear they are a disreputable and shady bunch.

    However, as you have not blacklisted them,I may be wrong?

    What is your opinion?

    1. Fair Question.. The problem is that you will find conflicting reviews. They did become regulated not long ago and it seems like some traders are happy with them. I am familiar with some of the negative campaigns and testimonials on this company but I don’t want to mistakenly blacklist a company if I am not %100 sure that they are a scam. In many cases traders email me evidence: and based on evidence I blacklist companies, otherwise I can be sued. If anyone has evidence to support that Banc De Binary is a scam, please email it to me.

  114. very trust worthy review, I love reading every single one of them, anyone who reads this page will be inform of any kind of scams out there, this is by far the best scam reviews blog out there, Michael I responded to your email, please just take a moment to read it, thank you

  115. funny all the above mentioned scams seem to route from the clicksure website ive been watching these for a while its just a haven for bogus software and scamming affiliates to rip you off of your money. it would be a good idea if it was possible to get the clicksure site shut down

  116. Would Don Michaels be the same guy that rang me maybe more than 8 months ago, gave me gold, and it lost? I lost %50, he was trying to get me to bet $150, I said no, because it lost, fortunately I have never heard from him again.Point 2, in relation to Apple Robot, and Wheat Robot, I have not invested in them, because, I noticed in the results screenshots, there is not any APPLE bets, nor in the case of MR WHeatman, I nevetr saw any WHEAT bets, Fishy do you think?

  117. Hi traders this is a warning of some scammers out there proclaiming to have the so called trade calculator, that makes fornominal profits. be aware of theses people Nathan Buckle, his wife Sarah Buckle, his mate John Kane, Pamela Chalmers, they will promise you the earth and deliver nothing, they have ripped me off for $3000 they will respond to all your emails when they are wanting money, and when they have it they will run and hide like cowards and the scumbags they are, beware of Zenith trading who they claim to use who develop the software, total scumbags and not to be trusted. if you have been ripped off by these people let me know as im using a debt collection agency to hunt them down.

    1. The Apple Stock Robot looks a little bit suspicious I must say. Any feedback would be appreciated.

  118. sorry pat you lost so much money . i was with option fm as well but as soon as they started hitting me for more money i canceled my accounts and credit cards for they hit them without your permission as well. i cannot get my head around you put that much money into it wow!!!!!!!!!

  119. Hi, Great site thanks for all the info…Any information on binarybook and profits with Cindy?

    Thank you,

    1. H Cynthia, Thank you! Unfortunately Profit with Cindy is a scam, her real name is Katie Harvey and she lives in Dublin, UK. I actually hired her to prove my point and asked her to lie about riding with me in “my new Lamburgini”…yet I don’t drive one. She is completely exposed now and is definitely a scam. I also included a link to her personal Facebook page in the comments below the video. Here it is:

  120. This is about Binary option potential Scam and how it could possibly be done.
    This is how I believe Don Michael from Option FM makes a lot of money out of the everyday person like me. I started with Option FM in November 2014
    To lure me in, Don offered Alibaba long term trades and said that these were secured. Over the first 2 months we made money on these trades. During that time, Don and I established a good relationship. Then Don started to put me under a lot of pressure to deposit more and more money.
    Don kept saying that he wanted me to reach the Tier 1 group because this group had people working full time at selecting winning trades for this special elite group. To reach this tier 1 my account needed to be $1,000,000.00 by January the 1st. Don said that should the account become smaller through losing trades, I would still remain as part of the tier 1 group for the year and have access to his team of analysts.
    Don also preached that he always traded long term trades, that these are less risky than the short term binary trades.
    To get more funds from me, Don had his team doing some research and we did a training session during which we made a lot of money. This re-enforced my belief that he was the real deal as we were doing really well in growing this account. “We make a good team” he kept saying. So while being pressured, depositing more money into the account appeared to be the way to go.
    For all losing trades at the beginning, Don covered them with “Bonus Funds”. He called them “secured trades’,
    We kept trading, some of the trades were winning and for all losing trades, Don covered them with bonus money so the account still grew. While this was happening, Don continued to pressure me to deposit even more money. He advised me to sell my shares from my other trading accounts even though they had to be sold at loss. I did follow Don’s advice because he had demonstrated that one can make more money quicker with Option FM. At the end of the day being so close to retirement, I was looking for a way to generate cash flow. I mentioned this to Don and he said that he had set a plan to do just that.
    Don is extremely talented at getting more and more money from you. Don also suggested that I could borrow more money from friends, even from money lenders. He showed me and made me truly believe that his research and analysts team could identify winning trades and make you a lot of money on the Option FM platform.
    The account grew. When I requested a small amount $10k to be paid back, it took time but Don did transfer it back to me as it was a very small amount compared to what the account level was at. This was also another way of showing that whenever I wanted money back, there would not be a problem. Don built up my confidence and eliminated the idea that “this could be a scam”. I started to really trust this guy Don and created a very good relationship.
    The bonuses amount deposited into the account were growing because we kept losing some of the trades while these trades were “secured”. My own deposit also grew because I was depositing more money from my other share accounts, from my saving account, from money borrowed, etc. The overall account was also growing because we had won some trades.
    All along, Don kept telling me that he had a plan but he never said what the plan was, even when I asked him many times to explain. I also asked several times for Don to issue me the Bonus condition document from Option FM, but Don never did. Don never explained how the bonuses work.
    Now 10th January 2015, the account shows a balance of $1,100,000, $500k of bonuses, and ~$400k that I deposited and $200k from previous winnings.
    I needed a sizeable amount of money back ($224k) to cover some of my financial commitment. I had highlighted this need at least a month before I needed this amount. When reminding Don about the money I required to be transferred back into my Australian account, I am told that I cannot get my money at the date I wanted because we needed it in the account to be part of a tier1 group. To be part of the Tier 1 group one needs to have $1M in the account. Request upon request the date for my request kept being delayed. In the meantime, I get a letter from Option FM written by Don advising me that from now on all trades are unsecured.
    14th January 2015, I keep asking for my $224k but I am only promised that “the withdraw” is in the system and that I should get it within the next couple of days.
    On the 19th January 2015 we started trading and in one session my account goes from 1,100k to 800k. I understand that one cannot win all the time and that this session was a losing one. In trading it happens. On the next couple of sessions the next day the account dropped to $500k. At this stage I am querying the reliability of the Tier1 group recommendations and I get very worried about getting the $224k which I desperately require by then. I still trusted Don but was getting very concerned.
    According to Don, when you reach the tier 1 status, it allows for each trade to be $15,000 rather than being limited to a maximum of $8,000 per trade, so we were now losing very fast. So when the account dropped to $500k, I again commented that we were losing a lot of money and asked the question “[1/20/2015 9:07:24 PM] Patrick Venaille: Don all these trades are protected yes? ” to which I was answered a very ambiguous answer “ [1/20/2015 9:08:40 PM] Don Michael: The protected applied to them”. which to me meant “yes” protection applied to them. Since I trusted Don 100%, I kept on trading the trades Don was telling me to trade. As far as I was concerned we had made some money before using the Tier 1 recommendations.
    We were trading late that night, I was working the next day, the account was decreasing and I needed to go to bed. Don insisted that we had to do more trades. I have never place any trades on Option FM by myself, they were all based on Don direction. I had seen the account going down and up before and ended up making a some money, so I kept placing the trades Don requested me to do. At the end of the trading session, we reduced the account to 9K. When questioned during these last trading sessions Don said that it was just “turn over”. When requested what he meant by that, he did not explain what that meant.
    The next day when I realized that these losing trades were not put back into the account, meaning that they were not covered, and that I would not get the $224k I desperately needed. I then knew I had been done and had also lost all my deposited funds.
    I realize now that this account has probably never been real. Don was never going to allow me to withdraw $224k because the money showed in the account was never real money. This could have been like a training account,”paper money”. All the money I deposited is probably in Don’s or Option FM Company’s bank.
    If this is not the way it was done, then why did, as soon as I wanted to withdraw $224k, basically the next day;
    1- Don sent me a letter saying that from now on trades were not secured.
    2- Don reduced my account in a few sessions to 9k so that I definitely could not get the required $224k. The last 2 sessions felt like a rampage, trading short term 10 trades at a time with some being 1 minute to 20 minutes of expiry contrary to what he had said, that he only trades long term trades as these were less risky. It felt like Don did not really care that the account was reducing.
    I believe that Don Michael from Option FM is a scam. I have lost over $500k AUD and am about to lose my house.
    I am hoping that other people read this and do not get into the same disaster.
    I would like to know how I could get him and his company Option FM to justice.
    I have emails and transcripts from my conversation with Don Michael via Skype to support my claim.

  121. can any one tell me about Magnunoptions binary i have been looking for a HONEST place if their is one or can some one tell me if their is one thay are in and tradin it that will not steal from you and let you withdraw what you got or earn help if i can be help thank you Kinghttempler

  122. I was interested in trying a robot as I do not have time to learn or to trade. I was forced to accept Amber Options as the broker! To everyone – KEEP AWAY!! I never got as far as using the bot, but was talked into joining a “webinar” that “guaranteed” a certain figure depending on your investment. Extract below of their guarantee –
    Good evening,
    As I promised below you can find everything about the webinars. Every webinar is 100% secure and it gives you about 85% of profits from the investment. There are three typical contract sizes: 5000, 7000 and 10000. First one gives you guaranteed profits of 4200, second one from 5700 to 6900 and last one from 8600 up to 9200. It’s on average, the most important part is that it’s secure and guaranteed. When webinars will be done I will call you back, inform you about the size of your account and then we will link your account with the Advanced Software and focus on normal trading.

    I added money to my account to make up to £10,000 after two successful webinars for the lesser amounts. Since then only 40% of trades have been successful as opposed to 80% before! £90,000 worth of trades have been made in one month yet my balance is only £476!
    I requested after only three days of starting this last webinar to ask to stop trading as virtually every trade was a failure. My instructions were ignored and money was regularly taken from my account to invest in new trades only be be just successful enough to reinvest again and again! Never did I see the balance rise as as soon as money was in the account it was taken out again! I changed my password to my account and continually repeated the demand to STOP trading but was totally ignored!
    Now – looking at my portfolio I see that trades have been added to it to make it look better than it was ( the trades were out of sequence with the time they were supposed to have been made! Luckily, I took photo copies of the trades before and after this happened! so can prove that doctoring of my portfolio occurred!
    Even now – after they have virtually emptied my account they are still making trades! whereas before for £500 a trade – now £75!
    This is blatant fraud but what can I do? I am retired and can ill afford what has happened.

  123. Tradarea is a Cysec regulated broker who you should stay away from. They lock your account and tell you that you have a zero balance if you win there.

    1. Hi Sheba, We’ve seen this new offer.. “this is not another cheap production” website. We would love to get some feedback and we encourage everyone to please share your experience or any information relating to the A.I.APP website.

  124. Update on Elite Trader App.This Bot has gotten my $250USD deposit down to 193.15!!I have, after refusing Titan Trade the broker’s request for 8 numbers of my visa debit card to be shown for verification purposes, managed to accept the last 4 digits only, showing.Great, then last night,April 30th, I spent hours on chat trying to request the withdrawal.I spoke to two operators, female and male, both very personable, Myles was extra patient.Reason for all my troubles withdrawing was that on left side of screen, the various buttons were not highlited, just white and blank.How is anyone supposed to guess, like I eventually did by using much trial and error, that you had to click the BLANK boxes?In order to withdraw they want to know the reason for, but also a 6 question survey, I had to do this several times, before finally getting it approved, now we shall see if I indeed am afforded the seeming luxury of a broker paying me back what’s left of my $250.If I get it, I’m going to try Mikes Autotrader, I may have to use Titan again because your Autotrader offers me Titan as the broker.PS Elite Trader’s App got up to $375-$380’s.However, after restarting it up again feeling the market was more stable, it chewed it’s temporary profits until it lost 57$.I suggest, if people monitored the Bot’s trading, if you see a bit of profit, withdraw it before it gets a chance to lose it!!

    1. It could be that Paul’s Auto Trader didn’t work so well and he decided to pull it off the market. He is also no longer active on YouTube. I am not absolutely sure what happened with him. I know he was a good trader and a great mentor and he will be certainly missed. Too many crooks in this industry and he was definitely one of the good guys.

  125. Please Mike, you have to put GOPTIONS in your BLACK list to avoid more victims, they have a big SCAM schema … I have been scammed …STAY AWAY OF THEM!!! Especially J AVERY !!!!

  126. I signed up with The Free Money System, through Boss Capital apparently they are in London England. What can you tell me about them. They claim to do all the trading for you and you get 85% of the profits. The more I read on your blog the more it looks like a scam

    1. I don’t know about GOptions.. some traders claim they are legit and some are claiming they are not, I have no opinion for you. I’ve seen a few companies get wrongfully accused in the past.. so if you don’t have any evidence to support your claim that your broker is a scam I cannot just blacklist them for fun but I will certainly let you comment.

      As for the Free Money System, it’s a scam and BossCapital is not regulated. Arland, I suggest that you deactivate the software and continue trading on your own. Trading with an EU regulated broker is always better so you might want to also consider switching brokers if you run into any issues with BossCapital.

  127. I can’t wait for the markets to be open for business!!! I’ll be looking forward to the next trading sessions. I already a few friends I invited to your Facebook group and I will continue and spread the word. You rock!!!

    1. Thanks again Mark! We’re doing the best and it doesn’t really take much to form a successful binary options group. Many people are too greedy and instead of motivating other talents to take part in the group they work against their own traders. I also noticed that by giving cash incentives to members who contribute to the group, the overall performance is increasing since our top traders are a lot more careful before posting a signal on the group’s page, knowing that a bonus is at stake. I am not familiar with any other service that rewards their members with cash incentives as a motivation, which is one of the reasons behind the success you’re seeing. I wish you and all of our members nothing but a lot of success!

  128. Thank you so much Michael Freeman! I also just recently subscribed to your Facebook group. I am glad to see legitimate traders like yourself working hard for new traders like me. I visited many binary options websites and no one seems to tell the truth like you do! Thank you for exposing all the binary options scams and keep up the great work you are doing for all of us!! Your biggest fan! Mark Jensen

    1. I really appreciate your feedback Mark!! Thank you for taking part in our new community. It’s really exciting to see how we grew from a small number of traders to 1000+ members with 7 leading admins all pushing for great results. By the way, if anyone is interested to join Mark and the rest of us, you can join the group via the following page Thanks again Mark and god bless you all! Mike

  129. I was advised by Kimberly Jackson of Options Magnat that if I invested 15K, their company would add 20K for a total of 35K to invest. Jackson stated the company had an outstanding track record. I was contacted by Options Magnat employee, Brian, and he told me what trade options to make. The next day I was advised that Brian was not supposed to be making trades with me and had lost all my money and the 20K they had added. I was advised Brian was going to be fired (conversation was taped)!
    I was advised by Kimberly Jackson that the owner felt real bad about what happened to me and that she had spoken to her supervisor and that if I invested another 15K, they guaranteed I would get my money back and they would add 45K for a total of 60K. Jackson gave her personal guarantee that my money would be replaced if it was lost (on tape) invested as I was told by Kimberly Jackson. The next day, I checked the account and it was down to 17K. In addition, I checked my credit cards and found they had charged 20K to my card. I contacted Options Magnat and was told they would not return the 5K overcharge. I finally spoke with Kimberly Jackson and was told I would have to sign a form that says I authorized them to charge the additional 5K. I refused because I said that would be “FRAUD” since I didn’t authorize the extra 5K. I was advised by Kimberly Jackson that was the only way I would get my5K back. So, I signed the form and wrote on the document that the extra 5K was charged in error and was to be credited back to my account. I was advised it had been approved on March 27 and it would take 3-4 business days before the money was credited back to my account. I called after four business days and was advised it takes 3-4 days for the approval (which was already approved see attached) and an additional 4-5 business days for the money to be put back on my credit card.
    I called back and spoke to another employee who said Kimberly was under investigation and was going to be fired and that I should give him 5K and he would match it with 7K and get my money back. I declined. Later, I was able to reach Kimberly and she stated she wasn’t under investigation and asked me to email her the conversation which I did.
    I called on April 10th to speak with Kimberly and they said she was busy. I asked to speak with a manager and they said one would call me back within a hour. No one called.
    Every time I call, they say “Give me more money so we can get your money back!” I get nothing but the run around. I have called approx. 50 times. They routinely put you on hold then hang up. You have to call back and you are placed on hold automatically again. When you do reach a person, they always say someone will call you back and no one ever does.

    Every time I call, they ask for more money and when you decline you get the run a round. They hang up, put you on hold for extended periods, and they blatantly lie and say the employee who lost your money has been fired or is under investigation.

    I called to speak with Kimberly Jackson at 4:15pm PST. I was told that she would call me back. Approximately 15 minutes later, I received a call from an Options Magnate employee telling me how bad he felt and that I should trade with him. I was told I could get my money back in “5-10 minutes” and I recorded this message. I didn’t receive a call back from Kimberly Jackson after 1hr 15mins. I called back again was placed on hold and then they hung up! Standard procedure for this company! They are scammers! They won’t give their address and state all communication must be through e-mail only! I want to sue this company for breach of contract. I have the employee’s taped statement that they guaranteed my money. I called to speak with Kimberly Jackson and the employee hung up on me again. I have called numerous times and left messages to call me and I haven’t heard back from Kimberly although she’s at work. There scam is EXACTLY how your website describes it!! I need a lawyer!

  130. Please beware that is also another scam broker. When you wanted to withdraw your profit or close your account (to get your whole money back), they will find ways to deny your right. They will get angry with you. Emails, phone calls and live chats are all falling on their deaf ears. They will not expedite your request. Once you deposit your money with them, don’t ever dream to get back even if it is your profit, what more your own money that you deposited. Take note my friend. I experienced it.

  131. Add Tiger profits to the black list. The same guy that shows in the picture on the site, is also on some other sites with a diferent name. How can they say on the site that its legal when the guy on the picture is not even a real person. My friend tried this once and lost money.

  132. I think ftrade, based in London, but offshore registered,could be a worthwhile Binary Brokerage to try.I opened an account with $200USD. I placed 3 trades so far, losing the first on the NFP fiasco, last month.Tonight I placed 2 on USD/JPY for call, both won.Now, I notice that you get either exactly the price you ask, or only 1 higher or lower. the platform is clear, doesn’t jitter. They have been operating in financial markets for about 15 years but only about15-18 months in Binary , nor freeze, everything within works, they also have news headlines at the lower end of the trading page.You have to jump through some regulatory hoops to deposit, join or withdraw, but I am used to that.I am not in anyway connected, apart from being a customer.Try, bearing in mind, only deposit small until you feel comfortable, listen carefully, as they are mostly fotreign workers on work visas I would guess.Get all agreements in writing too, but I think they are honest and worth a try.Search

  133. I wish I’d come across this site BEFORE I did the following, but hey, I should have done some more research before diving into trading online. However I wish to pass on my experience with whoever reads this and I hope it may benefit someone. Beware of Banc De Binary! I came across their website which looks very professional, so I thought I’d try out my first few trades with them. Shortly after signing up I received a phone call from them and I was sweet talked into investing a large some of money to make their Gold account, and was assigned a account manager Peter Anderson. After numerous phone calls promoting how I’m going to make my investment grow by 80% etc …. etc we started to trade with short term binary trades. Peter advised me to trade £1000 on each trade and taking his advise I traded with this amount on each trade immediately as he sent through his signals. In the first round of trading I won 5 and lost 5. When I reported back my results he said “ok we’ll do a recovery session”…… Yeah right! Once again I trusted his decision and stupidly went along with his advise. In the second round I won 2 and lost 8 which damn nearly wiped me out. Losing thousands in a matter of a few hours.
    I’m really kicking myself now as the signals I’ve been getting from Mike’s Facebook page have been brilliant, and if I’d applied those signals at £1000 a time like Peter had advised me, I would be well ITM now.
    My advice to anyone is please don’t get talked into paying more money than you can afford to these brokers. Do not get talked into accepting their 100% bonus as there’s always a catch! And don’t bother with an account manager. If you’re serious about trading online, do your own research. Account managers just want your money, whether you win or lose.
    And guess what, I’ve not heard a thing from Banc De Binary after losing near everything…. Surprise surprise. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get any of that money back even though I was following their account managers advise. Just wouldn’t want anyone else to be sucked in like I was.

    1. I didn’t get any feedback on the ‘Professional Binary Robot’ as of yet but I must say, it resembles the typical money making scam. It doesn’t seem like a professonal binary options service you can trust but if you ever decide to give it a try, be sure to give us your feedback.

    1. Hi Hernan, I went over the website and even though I’ve yet to receive feedback from users. I can tell you that it looks %100 identical to similar money making schemes targeting binary options and FX traders. I would strongly advice you to stay away from it. If you have any feedback, please share it with us.

  134. Hallo!!

    I am the living example of being Scam AAoption is a plat form that put bonuses into your account without your permission, to top it up they tell me is the robot automatically do it.
    As of writing AAOPTION is holding on to my £1500 pounds of my pure money but i’m taking them to court.

  135. You can add Bancde options and Optionrider in the near future as well as binary trading ponzi scams. Lots of excuses for not paying people, enough indictations its a scam though. They been searching for excuses not to pay, for over 3 months now.

  136. I would like to know about the AUTO PROFIT PERLICATOR SOFTWARE by SIMON SAUNDERS is it legit or a scam, does it work

  137. ATTENTION BEWARE ! no work with Petterson diamonds s.a.- Futura live s.a. and mr Foglio giovanni- italians
    address via molinazzo 2 Lugano
    are frauder robbery- ask money to make nothing ! propose invest in diamonds- gold- bond- obligations BG but has nothing !!! all fraud – dirty people under SWISS justice for many fraud- no send money !!!

  138. Do NOT use Regal Options. They have an Auto Trader called “Avenger Trader.” It’s all a scam. I stupidly signed up for them with a $200 deposit. In ONE DAY those bastards blew up my account. Avenger Trader posts a record of their trades which is a complete lie. The trading record shows a 70% daily ITM. However, that record is a lie because all of their trades were losses. Please stay away from Avenger Trader and Regal Options.

    Mayfair options are by far the worst company I have ever had the displeasure of dealing with. When I say worst company, I do not mean just Binary Traders, but the worst in any industry anywhere. Their online support is incredibly slow and appears they only have two people covering 24 hour support – TWO hours just to try to organise a payout via online support. Any telephone number listed on their site is FAKE. I actually deliberately traded my account into the ground to try and stop anymore phone calls from their ‘brokers’ (marketing???)

    After making my initial ‘sample’ deposit and completing some successful trades, the multiple phone calls per day began all telling me that I needed to deposit more money to get a broker, blah, blah, etc ,etc. These calls came in at all hours, day and night 12.30 am, 4 am, etc. despite repeatedly advising that I was just trialling for the moment and would contact them if ready to deposit more.

    After about two week of constant phone calls, I decided enough was enough and attempted to withdraw my initial deposit plus remaining balance on the account. Both of which were not large amounts but money none the less. This is where the real fun began!

    After submitting my withdraw request and getting notification that the funds should be received in around 5 working days, I waited, and waited… Eventually logging back on only to find the request had been cancelled. An inquiry to the customer service revealed that the withdraw function could only be used for the amount that was originally deposited. All other withdrawals had a different process – which include waiting for the first withdraw to arrive in my account before requesting the rest… (?!?) this is not mentioned on the site. OK – So I did my withdraw again and after waiting, waiting, was told I needed to verify my identity again – for the THIRD time now. This is now at around four weeks since my original request to withdraw! I provided my identify checks again, resubmitted my withdraw request and waited, and waited, and finally the original deposit arrived back in my account.

    Upon attempting to request the remaining balance (my winnings) I was told that I needed to now print and complete a form verifying, once again that I’d made my original deposit – the very same one they had already processed the payout on. The reason I’m told is that they were changing their procedure and everybody needed to complete this. I actually tried to do a small trade at this time on an almost sure thing and found my account was actually suspended. I was advised that this was because I had not yet completed the new form that I’d never heard about before – I suspect that it was actually because I was trying to actually *gasp* withdraw my winnings.

    I don’t have easy access to a printer but eventually managed to print and scan this form. Upon attempting to submit to customer service I was told it had to be sent via reply email. I never received any email in the first place. I was also told at this time that I’d made a request to withdraw my account three days earlier that had already been accepted. Definitely not me requesting a payout – why would I even waste my time trying to request this when I had this additional form to complete. Asking support if it’s possible my account had been accessed by somebody else was ignored. Realising I’d spent about ten hours stuffing around to try and get around 200 dollars paid out and that somebody else had requested a payout of my account, I decided to write it off as a lost cause. I ended up completing some trades that were quite likely to lose and got my account down to a balance of zero. At least now they 4 am phone calls from their ‘brokers’ might stop.

  140. NRGBinary is trading under the Golden goose method. They (GGM) were the first ones to email me then it all changed to
    I have been chasing these guys since the 19th January this year to return money that was taken out of my credit card account without my permission. Can you imagine the shock, stress and anger I went through after I found out that my credit card account had been emptied? I went to pay for a bill only to find that I had insufficient funds. I have been notified from my bank that my card is in overdraft by almost $1000.00 and has been since then. Man! I would be wanting these clowns to pay for my overdraft as well as return my money after all this time. Have you got any suggestions on how I should be handling these guys? My young family have really suffered because of this too and I want my money back! I am unemployed of which the broker knew.

  141. Hello, sorry my English. I was convinced to go with 250 pounds in BANC In BINARY, after this first deposit, the broker did the devil for me to put more money in my account BANC In BINARY, thinking they would be serious deposited a 2-time of 10,000.00 pouds, me gave the bonus without 5,000,00 I understand well how it worked BONUS system, on the first day and after some negotiations my account binary rose to 27,000,00 pounds. The day after the second deposit I was sorry to deposit as much money out, and asked my broker the money back to my bank account and immediately they moved in last Friday 20/2/2015, and my bank appeared in the extract my account pending return to be unlocked, friday to tuesday they returned to withdraw all of my bank account again. I went to my bank and asked that the transaction is concelada, for I was the victim, the broker does not want to return my money, and my bank asked the fraud department to solve the problem which had taken about thirty days. I am a poor, my 10,000,00 pounds I do on 5 years of hard work. Can anyone help me please.

    1. %100 crooks!!!! Ana, email me at I have a few suggestions for how you can deal with this company. They are highly manipulative, no wonder you ended up depositing so much. I’ll help you at no charge, email me and let’s see what we can do.

  142. This is relatively new.. Anybody have any info. on this system or tried it. Mike would you say that all these binary options sites that offer the automatic trades for you are all scam sites.

    1. Hi there, well not all automated bots are fake. I listed a few that are getting good ratings and I also offer my own AutoTrader + Signals Group on Facebook. However, the Verified Trader is a scam, I went over the website and found lot’s of misleadng elements.. I am %100 confident that this website is a well designed scam. For the most part, real traders don’t know how to create these fancy looking websites as they are too busy trading. Websites like Vrified Trader are not easy to create and one must have serious ‘Internet Marketing’ experience.. Here is my review on Verified Trader

  143. hello, I think ive just been ripped off by this company ! im a new trader and this is the second time ive been had !
    lost 1000 with optionfm (2000 with the bonus) in a day with some what I think irresbonsible trades!! I deposited 250 to start but was bullied into maxing out a credit card that id just got a loan to pay off!!!this has happened within the last week ! could do with some advise please

    1. OptionFM is running a big scam and they are known to manipulate traders into depositing more, in many cases a lot more than a $1000. The bonus they gave you locked your funds until you reach a high trading volume. The best way to handle this situation is with a credit card dispute unless you wired them money. Contact your credit card company as well as the IC3.GOV if you want to also file a complaint. They will not release your funds even if you meet the required trading volume. I received many emails concerning this broker so don’t even waste your time and refrain from direct communication with them, there’s nothing to talk about with crooks.

  144. A cautionary update, It is possible that Elite Trader App may be ok, so with some of the other Bots and Systems.It may depend on the broker, you unfortunately or fortunately get hooked up with.I have read glowing claims of Elite, Legal Insider Bot, 2014 Millionaire and others, which I personally, either, blew my $250USD or part thereof.It seems that times they place trades, and indeed market prevailing conditions may be the explanation.In Elite Trader App’s instance, I was down $50, then after suspending the Bot’s trading, I recently reactivated it, it is working on Titan Trade.On Friday 13-14th I last saw it was up, in profit of $36, having a balance of $286.I shall keep you all posted, Dallas Johnson.

  145. The ad of the Mybinary system that they do on PTC sites is very appealing and convincing. Poor people easily fall into their trap. It is a human tendency to look for easy money and they exactly know this, the hype they make and the dreams they show, easily attracts desperate people looking for money. The instructional video page where you finally land up after submitting your email, sounds very convincing. I too fell into their trap, I opened an account and deposited $250 as said in the video, and followed each step mentioned in the video to the word. Let me warn anyone who is planning to give it a try, the strategy is complete BS, It DOES NOT WORK, it may work one or two time, but not always – I have tried it, and I am telling you DO NOT risk your $250. It is very painful to see your hard earned $250 just vaporizing. I hope this saves many people from becoming their victims.

  146. You can add this one to your blacklist too. The person – Mike Brown has been cajoling me to buy into his BinaryApp-810 scam.

    1. Mike Brown must be one of the email solicitors for BinaryApp-810 or Insider John, same thing, one of the biggest scams in the industry. Thank you for the heads up.

  147. Hi, I live in Sweden and was thinking about joining BTS and the broker Boss Capital. What do you (or anyone) know about them??

    1. Hi Dan, Unfortunately Markets Word is a scam. They refuse withdrawals and offer a really lousy customer service. Besides the complaints that I personally received via email, you can find some public complaints on on the following page: Markets World Complaints.

  148. OptionPrim is not yet in your list (called similar to OptionPrime, but missing last “e”). They are definitely scamers. They called me today. So many scamers called me, that I identify them in 10 minutes. Very unprofessional sales person, she knows nothing about market and finance – “We are regulated by 10 European banks…”, promise up to 60% of profit in a month etc (!).

  149. It seems Optimarkets Brokers have suddenly ‘closed up shop’ – at the same time a ‘new’ Binary Options Broker has appeared. They are called, ‘Now Options’ and their website templates are nearly identical to the site of (ex) Optimarkets. While my loss isn’t drastic I want to warn others to be careful if planning to open an account Now Options as I feel they could well be Optimarkets re-opening under a new name.

    1. Hi Bev, Thank you for the heads up. OptiMarkets was one of the shadiest brokers I encountered. A few years ago I gave them a positive review when they just came out but after the horrible complaints I started to receive I quickly removed them. I will see if there is a way to verify that Now Options is associated with Optimarkets and if they are, I will add them to my blacklist ASAP.

    1. MarketsWorld is not a reliable broker and they are definitely not CySEC regulated. In the last year I received numerous complaints regarding involving withdrawal denials, expiry manipulation and lack of customer support. It’s better to avoid them and keep your wallet safe.

    1. I’ll try to gather up some information on UKoptions, all I can tell you is that they are relatively new. One of my subscribers is currently trading with them, I will ask him to post an update.

  150. Hi Mike. Just to let you know that you r a good mentor and keep up the good work. My question is do we pay TAX from binary options profits?


  151. I am diligently looking for a Canadian Broker/Company that is legit here in Canada. One that I can withdraw from painlessly, has good returns, and possibly an automated system. Is there such a thing here in this country? Your blog has saved me from investing in many scams and I thank you. Also please note that I am a fresh newbie and would not mind finding a company that provides a good education plus a demo (that does not use real cash) to practice on. Am I asking for the world? I hope not.

    1. Hi Dawn, In Canada you don’t have the same restrictions as traders in the US have and you can register with a fully EU reglated broker. On the blog’s menu you can check out Topoption, OptionTime and Anyoption, these are my top regulated brokers, Topoption and OptionTime offer a $100 minimum and Anyoption is the pioneer and still the biggest brand in the industry. Safey matters most, I would avoid any unregulated brands. Cheers! Mike

  152. To Barb, with Option Area problem– I had a very similar problem with a broker from OptionRally.He told me he wanted to help me get ahead and make plenyt of money, he said he would put $3k into my trading account, saying, he wanted to “help” me.I said, just put it into my trading account but I wouldn’t accept any bonuses or “gifts”.He says he had to put it in my visa debit card account.I said ok.He goes away, comes back to talk with me, saying they could only get about $5-600 and there wasn;t anything in another account.I say, “hey, what are you talking about” you said you were going to give me 3k not, take money from my account!! he then got shirty with me, said he’d wasted 45 minutes on the phone and hung up on me.I had to go through the getting the permission from another broker/account manager– how many are there, I had about 8-10 different ones!!.I did the verification rigmarole but still didn’t get my money back, even though I told them they could do a chargeback on the card,.I eventually got my illegally taken funds by telling them it was fraud, I had not given permission for the dodgy broker to steal my funds and if they did not authorize and pay the payment back, I would charge them with theft by fraud.Quickly, I received notice all docs were in order and it would be paid back into my card account.In about 48 hours it was in my account.The exchange rate can cause you not to see the payment because, if you deposit $250 you get either more or a lesser payment figure you need to look for in your banking account.I suggest, you try saying the same as I did to get your money repaid to you.I hope this helps.Brokers are very tricky, potentially, slimy snakes speaking fast with gilded tongue, in the main!!You must listen very intently to each word, phrase,and offer, paying particular attention to each connotation of the words.The Devil is in the detail!!

  153. Hi,I have had dealings with option area that had been really bad. Started out with 250 and added on 250 on one occasion. Broker called and wanted me to increase ” so that he could be my broker”. I said no, I can not afford to spend more dollars trading. He then told me “yes you have the dollars I credited your card right now”. He actually stole my money from my card.I contacted support at OptionArea as soon as possible. Did get in touch with one person in management/accountaccounting. I requested all my funds back from options area. I did receive 201 from them after one time and several emails. The 500 on the one card where the 250 was stolen from I have not received after many try.I have proof of all transactions. They only say it’s been sent from them. In my try to get my money I also fell for the “help” I was going to get if he became my broker. Cost me 250 witch he lost in 60 sec. Several has tried to contact me from them, and also from whowever shares their platform. They are a bad lot.This has been going on for 3 month’s.

  154. I have dealt with three different brokerages and they all do the same. They exert pressure to increase your deposit by promising unrealistic returns. One got so nasty that I hung up on him. I think it is something you just have to expect when you sign up.

  155. Dear Mike, Thank you so much for saving me from Markets World. The sales rep seemed really pushy. I wanted to deposit $100 and he kept trying to push me to deposit $5000. How on earth did he think I was going to fall for that? He offered me his mentoring and promised to make me a millionaire. I felt so awkward.. later in the conversion when he realized I wasn’t into depositing $5000 with his “Markets World” he became angry and started telling me that I will most likely fail if I deposit less and completely tried to discourage me from trading in general. I am %100 sure Markets World is a big scam now, I thank you for blacklisting them!

  156. Hi Michael, looking to start binary options for the first time. Have had a couple of different emails asking to join but I haven’t done anything. Last week got and email from Victor Lambert from Binary Millionaire and Sarah Markel from Quick Cash System., are any of these legitimate. Can you recommend the best binary options in Australia don’t want to get caught.

    1. There are good auto traders out there but most of them are fake money making scams. I am actually about to add Binary Millionaire, Insider John, Quck Cash System and all the rest of the new fake marketed junk that’s coming out. AVOID AT ALL COST. On they are already blacklisted, here is an example Insider John SCAM or you can also visit Quick Cash System Warning , on WatchDog they blacklist all of the fake systems that are coming out. Best of luck and have a great weekend! Mike

  157. Micheal, what brokers do suggest for usa traders, I know there is nadex, but they dont handle sixty secound trades, do you have a reliable and trust worthy company that you use,— I CANT AFFORD ANY MORE SCAMMERS, But really want to be a successful day trader

    1. Hi James, for US traders I created a section titled Recommended US Binary Options Brokers – I am going to add Bigoption on this list over the weekend, I just recently reviewed them on YouTube as they are now an option for traders who wish to sign up with my free auto trader ( )
      Here is my new Bigoption Review on YouTube If you run into any questions about any broker you can email me at Cheers! Mike

  160. Thanks for being real.I am just looking into this and I appreciate your honesty and I think it is great to contribute to causes. Well done. I hope more humanoids hear your words

  161. redwood options is fake
    1. they force me to do another payment from me to them I google them and they are fraudsters. I also tell my bank who did not help me to recover my money back
    I am still fighting to get my money back to my bank account

  162. Thank you for helping me avoid Insured Profits, I was almost hooked, even though my alarms went off. Happy accident, your website is what I’ve been looking for: real info about binary option trading. I am looking forward to making a contribution to Syrian Orphans, as soon as I am more educated in BOT.

    1. Hi Michael, It makes me proud to know that I am able to save people a lot of money with this blacklist, even though I am taking many attacks and threats almost on a daily basis now since my website is ranked really well in the search results. I am costing these scammers I am a walking target. Research is really important with binary options and forex..In most cases, if the product/broker/service is a scam, sooner or later, someone will write something about it. Always make sure to not trust any promotional reviews unless you verify that no negative reviews or any type of negative feedback in the search results. It’s really unfortunate that “wherever there’s money involved in the internet, there are tons of scams” it’s true with every money making opportunity. The type of format and sleazy tactics that Insured Profits are using are the same tactics that were used a few years ago when “creating a store on Ebay” was really hot..many fake systems and money making schemes came out with “proven systems and ways to make millions with Ebay” and so on… If you or anyone else has any question relating to binary options, don’t hesitate to email me at Good Luck and God Bless You All!

  163. Dear Mike and traders, Re Option.FM, I’m not categorically saying they are a scam operation, but advise: never deposit more than the min $250.Don’t believe one word of the brokers’ representations to you, if they say they will put something in writing, whilst in conversation, check your email’ DO NOT agree to anything before you get it, brokers will try the trick of letting you think you are getting written advice, get you to sign, or fund, top up etc. but the email if it arrives, won’t have the exact wording you were led to believe it would have.Anyway, FM , along with any other broker, should be handled with kid gloves!! Upon reading, some of forum’s posts I cannot believe how, STUPID, GREEDY and or NAIVE some of you are, in depositing many k’s, even $50-80 k’s!! and in some cases, by signing trading permission forms ,allowing orthers, whom you have never met, but have been impressed by the fast talk, or if female, her sexy, silken voice, for which they have been hired by the brokerage, to relieve you of your hard earned cash.Please do not believe, your most recent”best friend, that just wants to see you make the money you so much deserve” What they really want to see is their commissions in THEIR bank account, not yours!!

  164. Mike…ADD Josh Owen & his “Auto-Mobile
    Code to your list of SCAMS! Stay AWAY from THIS SNAKE! ALSO, Cloud Pro Hosting, “Guaranteed WEALTH” is ANOTHER SCAM!

    1. Guaranteed Wealth is the next service I intend to blacklist, they will also be blacklisted on very soon. So far we counted over 30’s a scam on a massive scale. Cloud Pro Hosting looks like a complete scam just on first look. The good thing about WatchDog is that each review goes really viral and ends up on the first page, as Google ranks real reviews in the search engine higher than fake reviews.. The warnings are coming out shortly!

  165. It would seem that Richard and Willem are spot on. I got this snake oil salesman called Ben Williams – give this boy a very wide birth. He told me a load of old pony, he said he was going to give me some interest on my deposit. What he actually meant he was going to give me a BONUS which is a totally different thing. Needless to say OPTION.FM are not going to give me my money back. They have asked me for CDD info now, I have told them that I am not sending them any proof of identity, I’m sure this should have been done BEFORE any transactions took place to cover their asses in case of money laundering. We’ll see.

  166. Hi, i want to warn everyone for I am trying to get my money back for more than a month now. They come up everytime with lots of B.S. saying: missing information or request being processed. On their website there is stated 3-5 work days for withdraw. It’s not going to happen. They don’t pay you!

  167. Hi Mike, I sent you my results with OZ Robot on Sep 12: 3 wins out of 10 trades in 10 days. Account finished.
    It seems makes it a habit to use scam services to promote themselves. When the first loss happened they called me and wanted me to make manual trades with more deposit hinting already that the OZ Robot might not be what I expected.

  168. Hello Mike

    I plan to try your new Auto Trader. Paul from really recommended you and I’ve read some of your strategy guides. I also really love the donation initiative, the altruistic act of raising donations instead of charging people money, is a beautiful thing and very refreshing. I am currently using the AQI software after seing your recommendation, besides the fact that I don’t get as many signals as I was hoping for, their performance is up in the sky… most days I am getting over %80 ITM so I increased the trade amount and I am pulling some good money with them. I am hoping that with your software combined with the AQI software I can really make it big.

    Thank you for the great blog, keep doing an awesome work and expose the scammers, they don’t deserve any business!!

  169. Hi Mike,
    I am so glad to have found your website. I have opened an account with Trade Rush and would like to hear your comments about them. Are they real and is it advisable to trade with them long term?

    1. I previously gave them a positive review but I no longer endorse them due to their bad marketing tactics and managed account tricks, they are not a %100 scam but I don’t recommend them. If anyone else has any feedback on TradeRush, that’ll be great!

  170. Hi, This is an interesting take on the Legal Insider binary bot,which operates on Option.FM, I must point out that this bot software is different to that supplied on Bancdebinary, I have an account with both.That which is linked with Option.FM is still trading, although I disabled auto trading from within it’s dashboard.Recently, I was again able to get back into the Bot’s interface but lost the links I was supplied on first joining Legal Insider binary bot, by Mr Greg Marks and Stan Shultze.It seems that it has traded 122 trades and has success of %51 and 27% for average trade. Now I noticed an interesting thing on examination of the trading log.This Robot, places average number of trades at 3.2 daily.OK, however,I noticed that it places 3-4 consecutive winning trades, then averages out 3-4 losing trades?I am waiting on email reply from Millionaire 2014, I have asked them to investigate this along the lines of the signals the robot is working with of being out of sync, or timing somehow.I do not know a great deal about timing, but I do know that signals are unreliable, sometimes useless if the signals do not synchronize properly with the GMT opening times of the Stock Exchanges.Greg and Stan claim, 81-84% success rate for their robot!!Now, if even some of these markets are not properly syncing,say 2-4 possibly with adjustment, the present %51 success may well be able to increased to, say 71% which is average ballpark figure for success with trading binary options, profitably.I remember, being told somewhere, that with Forex it is important to sync your charts’ timing to GMT for the various markets, especially if using robots or signal services.Mike, or others can you shed more light on this subject, please?Regards, Dallas Johnson.

    1. This is awesome! I hope that the attack on this page was mitigated and it’s not a temporary slow down. This page has been down for over a week due to an attack, most likely by one of the scams that we exposed! I will be ready for any future attacks..I really hope this is solved. Thank you Bernadette.

    1. Lenka, it looks like one of the most fishy websites I’ve seen until now. I didn’t receive any feedback but my intuition tells me you should STAY AWAY ffrom however if you choose to give it a try, please keep us posted on the results. Cheers! Mike

  171. If anybody has lost money with optionBit, it may interest you to know that they are also operating as/with optionxp. I know this to be a fact, I am not surmising.As far as I know xp is in cyprus, but may have registered in Seychelles or BVI or possibly Gibraltar.I have an account with xp and in emails it says optionbit, so if you have lost with optionBit, that is where you may find them!!

  172. Hi,
    I recently got scammed by optionow I started with $300 dollar deposit then a senior broker called me and told me about assisted trading program. I was stupid enough to deposit $22,000 (all my savings) into an account with them, they matched it with $20,000. The account went up a few thousand once then just kept going down, and ofcourse the communication stopped too. It is now all but gone and 3 years of saving was for nothing. How do these people get away with it ?

  173. I recently got into this company ‘click clone cash’ and I signed up for it. It’s like some kinda online marketing stuff and I even have a domain which I need to pay for it and I did. But when it come to the step they provided, it ends up to a page where I need to sign up with the recommend broker of binary options, brokers include traderxp, dragon option and master option. Are these a scam?

    1. Very bad choice Jason!! It’s that part of the industry of the fake money making schemes.. and TraderXP, Dragon Option, Master Option and all of these brands are not even regulated..stay away!! I really hope you didn’t deposit with them yet, but if you did, you are welcome to share you experience. Cheers! Mike

  174. I was just investingating a company I wanted to trade with and ran across your page. Thank you Michael for helping me to not make another stupid decision Safe Trade App then I saw it on the list. It took me 2 months to get my money back from OptioNow the last message I told them was I contacted the fraud dep’t at the bank because Optionow refuse to return my money for services not tendered that is a form of fraud you did not provide the services you promise. After fighting with them for two month my money was in my account that evening

    1. Hi Laverne, that’s great news! Don’t treat this as a waste of time, treat it as a learning experience instead..I am sure you’re not going to ever make this mistake again. I had to learn “the hard way” in many steps a long the way, personal and business wise, sometime life just slaps you in the face and as long as you can get up on your feet, you can only get stronger 🙂 I am happy for you!! Have a great weekend

  175. SpotFN I regard this as a binary scam site as I signed up with them with US$400 only to win 6 option then loose the the lot in a couple of weeks, they then phoned me wanting me to to do a managed account an load the account with US$2000, I told them to close the account as I didn’t trust them.

  176. Hi Mike,

    Just wanted to say how much I appreciate your valuable work!

    Yesterday I made a start with Oz Robot and funded my account with $250. The robot seems to work wel so far…(just one “won”)within the next hour.
    But now I’m a bit worried as I see that they are tied to One Two Trading as their broker!

    I was immediately contacted by a “manager” (by phone) while still
    putting in my data….. I did not give him my card-data and did it all by myself and refused any help, neither did I opt for the bonus-option…
    I wonder if i would be able to withdraw any in the future..

    B.t.w… Does any full automated robot exist that can be trusted??
    I want to give binary options trading a try, but don’t want to do it manualy…
    I understand that it has it’s price but that’s okay…

    What is your best advice for me?
    What to do and where to go??

    1. OneTwoTrade is a problem and I also received a few emails with feedback on the OZ Robot performance results, it’s not very promising and I will add them on my blacklist because I see too many traders fall for these “money making schemes” lately. There are much better alternatives if you are lookning for a fully automated service, some are partnered with reliable brokers, and I can also recommend services that require you to manually enter the trade (Email and SMS notifications) it’s up to you and you are welcome to email me at with any questions on the different services, I am familiar with most of them. I also want you to watch one of my latest video titled “Binary Options Auto Trading – Does it Work?” Thank you for the feedback Ed and have a great weekend! Mike

  177. Hello everyone,

    Just want o confirm which many of you know already: The Legal Insider Bot is a 100% scam. I signed up and funded an account with, 250 eur, 8 trading days ago. As seen in the promotion video, they promise o refund possible losses after 7 days of trading. The trading result for the 7 days was -212,70,which of course in itself is a disaster. So yesterday I asked for a refund as promised.and it appears that will refund it as a BONUS, which all the strings attached that some brokers still apply. That is, they tie up your account with demanding a turnover for the deposit+bonus of 20 times before you can withdraw ANYTHING!!!!. We already know that serious brokers only have some conditions regarding withdrawal of the BONUS, and that is ok. So traders, stay away from Legal Insider Bot, and!

  178. Hi Michael,

    Many thanks for your feedback, after having read your website and things to look out for, this kind of was what you were saying to look out for. Thanks to your info i haven’t continues to register there. Great help!

    Will be reading more info on your site before i get into this.

  179. I am getting a lot of emails from this Binary options service above 2014 Millionaires Team.

    I cannot find anything good or bad about this. Minimum deposit is $250. The reason i am not sure about this (never mind being completely new to this) is that the deposit is quite high and there are a lot of emails pushing to make the deposit.

    I dont want to do anything foolish

    1. is a scam that’s about to be exposed, I already got a few emails from traders who are really unhappy with the performance, considering the high expectations and sense of hope instilled in the mind of traders. Please share your feedback on the 2014 Millionaires Team, any feedback is always appreciated!

  180. THANKS Mike – you are doing an awesome job.
    You have saved my pocket book.
    Much appreciate your time and effort invested in your due diligence

  181. The legal insider bot by Greg Marks claims a 100% guarantee to refund your initial investment if the auto trader or user looses in a 7 day period with a cap of $500,000. That 100% guarantee has terms and conditions with a legitimate broker called Beeoptions. You will have to do 20 times your initial investment plus bonus which is the insurance that covers 100% guarantee your initial investment. If you can’t tie up your money for that length of time to perform the massive volume trades you have to commit to, then don’t do it. What does it say about a legitimate broker that offers this type of an agreement, buyer beware. Remember, has a legitimate agreement with Beeoptions until July 2016.

  182. Greg Marks and Stan Lutz are a bit of a conundrum.On the one hand, Stan gives a very benevelent speel of insisting on our donation of $50,000 to a charity, on reaching each million, yet, I so far have found the auto software, has only 50% strike rate.Stan Lutz replied to an email I sent, saying, he must be living in a different parallel universe to mine, because, no way could I earn, by day’s end $17k or 23k as he said in his emails to me!!.He said in his reply that it was semi auto where I had to choose signals.I wrote back replying that, no, my software on Option.FM was definitely auto only,he said he was going to contact the broker, a few days later, I visited the Legal Insider Bot platform, someone must have jigged it, however it had traded a further 2 times, winning 1 trade, losing another, depleting my 250, first down to $247.20, after it;s first 2 trades, one win, one loss, to $244. On this info,I have decided to turn auto trade off, and now, have to deal with broker ID verification b/s, they are saying they didn’t receive my docs uploaded throgh their ID verification portal!! they want me to send docs again to their compliance via email, which is very difficult for me to do because ofM?S outlook issues, not allowing emails from it, to send to any other yahoo, or gmail mailing services. My personal agent/broker rang, 30 mins later, trying to keep me, however, I insisted on getting my remaining $239 out before it dwindles any more.I shall keep you informed.I figure that if you have auto software trading, there is no way to know if the brokers are causing slippage, enhancing likelihood of you losing, broker winning.I tested a manual trade within the brokers trading area, different to the Bot’s trading page.I found that, on an upward trending move on their separate Option,FM page, I was awarde about 3 lower or higher when trying to place a trade.If it is doing that before my very eyes, how could I know what slippage there is, whilst auto trading? Greg Marks could be sincere, however, if brokers manipulate, or if the signals sent to the Bot aren’t in timing sync when placed or received by the bot or broker’s implementation of those trades, could explain my particular 50% success rate, whilst Greg Marks is still making fantastic claims of successful trading??If anyone has had success with OTHER brokers using this Legal Insider Bot perhaps it will be able to shed some light on the passion to help charity and seeming poor trading results of mine.It is difficult to put both shades of this into perspective!!

  183. please sir, kindly advise me on Binary Signals Club, i have registered with them but to fund my account. thank you sir.

    1. In reference to I am not really familiar with the service but I am spotting too many red flags on the pitch page. The 3 testimonials are paid actors I already recognize, actors who were hired to promote scam services so this already reduced the credibility of this offer. The broker he is affiliated with provides demo accounts so he could’ve easily showcased his demo account in his demonstration… This service is also not really endorsed on any credible binary options forum or portal so I am not really sure if this is a good route for you.

  184. I tried having a real account with and I have this feeling that I am playing with a person who will never let me win…they were watching my trades and manipulate it at their advantage…the chance of losing in 10% ticktrades is very high…

  185. hi mike,
    first of all I would like to thank you for all the information. it has been a great deal of help.
    could you please recommend a successful automated service.
    also in your opinion do you recommend a automated service or a signal provider?

    1. Dilshan, I encourage you to watch my latest video on YouTube titled “Binary Options Auto Trading – Does it Work?” If you’re looking for a quick answer, the is one of my favorites! In the video I went over some of the factors that makes this auto trader different from some of the disappointing auto traders. It’s also offered free for 60 days. Checkout my complete list of recommended binary options signals services before you make up your mind! Anyoption also came out with their own auto trading bot and it’s free to download! I included both auto traders on my list of recommended signals services. On a side note, Anyoption is a trust-worthy broker and in fact, the pioneer of binary options trading! If you have any more specific questions you are welcome to email me at Cheers! Mike

    1. Just like Manav, I am really curious to know if anyone tried the OZ Robot, it looks very similar to some of the scams I previously reviewed but I want to give every new software/service the benefit of the doubt. I actually just reviewed a, surprisingly, Auto Trader for Binary Options on YouTube and it works! It’s offered free with a 60 days free trial and if you’re not in the USA, I encourage you to check out my new video!

      Please give us some feedback on OZ Robot people!

  186. is the biggest scam broker of all time..last month i deposited 100euros and within one month reached to 735euros and then made a withdrawal request but after 2days of request pending my account was blocked. they never responded to my emails and live chat is a bullshit that never functions. after a week of account block they unblocked it but there wasn’t any money…it was all 0.00 , what the f–k!!!! then after contacting them multiple times they responded Dear Sir Optionsxo has the right to neutralise any profits for any legitimate reason!!!! i have all their emails and screenshots of my every account activity…. i will soon upload all those stuff….but please get far away from these scammers… after depositing money they never responds to ur emails,,,, never never

  187. Hi Mike
    Just wondered if youve ever heard of Regal Options or automated software called Binary Trader Plus.
    Claims of over 90% success rate

    1. Hi Geoff, It’s the first time I am hearing about Binary Trader Plus, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is… Here is an article I wrote on this topic that you might find interesting Money Making Schemes article. If anyone would like to share any feedback in reference to the Binary Trader Plus or Regal Options please keep us posted!

  188. Here’s a good website. It is Ctoption
    I started a account and i enjoy them very much. When i started the account i got $50,000 worth of practice money this was to get used to trading and also to work on strategies. I only put $250.00 in my broker account to start with and this was the minumum amount i had to use to get started. Also they offer bonuses on your deposits and plenty of risk free trades. However if you except these you have to make so much money before you can make a withdraw. I however turned these bonuses down so i could withdraw money at anytime. Also unlike most binary websites you have the options to either enter in how much you wan’t to bid or just pick a amount. I however enter my bids. Also the max amount that you can bid at any time is $9999 at a 72% profit in the 60 second trades which i do. However if you have plenty of money in your account you can contact them and they are really good about answering because i never had a problem contacting them. Them can raise your bid ammount up to $20,000 and even higher. However i use a strategy that i created that lets me profit at $3 a minute through the 60 second trades guarented so my bids really arent that high. Please don’t ask me to share my strategy for trading because this im not willing to share. You will have to find your own strategy. But anyways they are the best company in my personal opinion and i would suggest them to anybody.

    1. Hi Daniel, The structure of your message suggest that you might be promoting CToption, however I will give you the benefit of the doubt and approve your comment which would have not been to case, if the comment included a link. Anyway, good to know about the practice account but I don’t recall seeing this brand on many binary options portals and forums..It could be a new brand and I’ve yet to receive any feedback on them besides your comment. Traders can always trade on the Spotoption Technology provider’s, I included a link to the demo on the binary options signals page. Cheers! Mike

    1. Poonam, The answer to your question is a scam? I posted a review on YouTube to try to figure this out myself. Checkout some of the responses below the video and you can evaluate the offer based on user feedback. (SEE: Binary Option Robot Review on YouTube ) If you are currently trading with the software, please share your feedback with us. Cheers! Mike

  189. I joined Option.FM, I think they may be ok, just going on very limited contact with them.It was via The Greg Marks Legal insider bot, which so far hasn’t placed a trade. I emailed Greg Marks but so far no em reply.I don’t know yet if all of this is a scam, but the limited numbers only allowed b/s is rather suss, in that it’s supposedly new, yet they show heaps of testimonials.Everyman, his robot and email dog is in on this, so much for limited access and you could lose your place jargon!! Even Fapturbo 2 is in on the emailing act for this one. You can turn the trading software on and off, so, if it turns out to be a dud, I think that I may still be able to do ok with Option Fm broker.So far, I was happy and impressed with “Laura, in chat” A lot of chat services seem to have “LAURA” have you noticed. I am also trying to get Tokyo Bot activated to test it on NRG Binary, when I get somewhere I shall post the results here.Both these brokers are slim with assets, though I notice!! However, if they are good otherwise, we may need to accept limitations as a necessary tradeoff.

    1. Hi Dallas, In response to your comment and I’ll quote “Greg Marks Legal Insider Bot, which so far hasn’t placed a trade. I emailed Greg Marks but so far no reply.” unfortunately this website is a scam. Here is a review that puts Greg Marks in his place!! Legal Insider Bot Warning. Ignore all the fake testimonials, in some cases they are created by paid actors. I didn’t understand your reference to Fapturbo 2, are you receiving email promotions for both software from the same source or did I misinterpret your comment? Tokyo Bot is another scam that was exposed on Now just because many robots/apps/software are fake I don’t mean to suggest that the brokers whom they are partnered with are necessarily scams. In many cases it’s true but not in all cases, I am still looking forward to receive more feedback on Option.FM and I appreciate your feedback Dallas!

  190. I have problem with Option.FM The verification process never ended. No chat no answer to my emails, but by it is trusted broker. Is it worth to trade? Will I see some money back?


    1. I am not really sure in regards to Option.FM, I am seeing some conflicting feedback. I will certainly appreciate some feedback from anyone who’s following this thread. If they don’t answer you calls and banned you from their chat widget.. I don’t know?!…. It does’t sound good to me!

  191. Warning everyone!! The new Legal Insider Bot by Greg Marks Bot is a scam!! I already activated the stupid software and it’s worthless junk!! I already contacted WatchDog and I am contacting you and your visitors to warn you again this fake product! Hopefully Mike will post a warning on YouTube against these scammers!

  192. Michael, your comments and advice is much appreciated. There is so much junk out there it is hard to tell the real deal from the scammers. There is the latest ‘Legal Insider Robot’ with Greg Marks. Any comments?
    Thanks so much for your help which is so much needed.

  193. Received an email on this.
    It guarantees your deposit is backed by the bank. They are called Legal Insider Bot and claim they just launched August 12, 2014.

  194. operated out of the same boiler room as (previously

    They are both owned by YTF Trade Limited.

    I’ve personally visited their boiler room.

  195. is scam,he does not know anything about trading, will ask you to become his club’s member paying 200$.with german skype profile but in actualy sitting in india.

    1. The Oz Robot doesn’t seem legit on first look. I didn’t hear from anyone who tried it yet but I see an increase in people asking about the OZ Robot so I am sure that within a week or two I’ll get a better idea of how well the robot is performing.

  196. Options Area is a fraudulent trading company that give you ridiculous offers and promises like making $40,000 a week, secured capital, high leverage, immediate withdrawals, 100% bonus, and secured trades of 90% win rate with a deposit of $5000 to get the gold account but in the end they only credit you the bonus when you lose almost all your capital during trading. Its almost impossible to get a withdrawal from them. Their brokers are gamblers and not professional traders with only 40% win rate and never bother to teach new clients how to trade and never give explanations for their secret trading strategy.

  197. on the subject of binary – to reinforce whats been said – (and thank you).. I quote for insured profits below. Thank you – I was tempted – you have re-inforced what I read also below.

    Insured Profits is the most recent joke orchestrated by the same folks who are behind Binary Matrix Pro and which they created in order to provide a 3rd party fake verification site to legitimize their franchised scams.

  198. Hi michael Thank very much for your very helpfull advice.I will check your recommendation.More power to you.!

  199. Hi Micheal , iam new in binary trading and plan to open one.what can you say with 8binary ?I am from the philippines.Thank you

    1. Hi Dar, I believe you also contacted me via email and I sent you back a respons. 8Binary is not regulated and not listed on any authority binary options forums so I would avoid the. As I mentioned in the email, the ideal choice is to partner with a regulated broker with an established reputation such as Topoption, OptionTime, Interactioption and OptionFair. These are just a few of my recommended brokers and you can find the complete reviews for each brand on under ‘brokers’ in the top menu of Cheers! Mike

  200. Bought into GTOptions via an email from Walter Green who gave me a convincing tale that I’d be a dollar millionaire within 3 months by joining Free Money System. So I thought I’d give it a try with $500 then I’m persuaded to add another $500 so that I get by being “gold” a $1000 bonus .By now I’m down $500 and attempt to withdraw $1000 and leave $485 in – but that won’t work so let’s withdraw $485. But this is a no,no since because I haven’t traded 30x $2000 all I could withdraw was exit with $485 As of yesterday decided to stay invested.
    BTW I, by questioning my broker and “new best friend ” as WG puts it in his frequent emails found out that GTO takes commission of 25% on all payouts.

    Have just had an email from him now reccomending Hercules Profit Pro where this morning from another source thought this made sense judging by testimonials so gave my email address but didn’t make a deposit to Amber Options. Checked out on Google but all “scam” reports give link to Hercules.
    Also turns out that Walter Green is a veteran MLMer/NetWorkmarketer

  201. I tried, but – “Currently, depositing from your region is not supported.
    We are working to upgrade the system so you will be able to deposit very soon.”
    Will be waiting 🙂

  202. Can you tell me if Regal Options is legit. And what about a signal services – Hercules Profit Pro?


    1. Hi Peter, it seems like a lot of people are asking about Hercules Profit Pro right now so I am assuming they recently launched this offer. I will keep my eyes open for any feedback or forum discussions, I know they are connected with several brokers so in your case, they assigned you with Regal Options. The problem is that Regal is not regulated but I’ve yet to receive any negative feedback on this brand and it doesn’t seem like they’re negatively reviewed anywhere on the internet. I you decide to try Hercules Profit Pro or if someone else has any information or an experience to share, please join the thread. Cheers! Mike

    1. Stockpair recently became regulated, they’ve been around for a few years and I am not getting any complaints or hearing anything unusual associated with them. I think they’re safe.

  203. Hi Mike,

    I must be one of the biggest suckers. I signed up with Tokyobot and funded account with their broker BigOption with £250.00. I also see that you say they are not legit. As of yet I haven’t traded anything yet on my account. Can I withdraw my funds/close account.

    1. I am sorry to hear about your experience. I am sure that in retrospect you understand how silly it was to buy into the Tokyobot narrative. I have no complaints against BigOption but unless you didn’t signup with a bonus (which restricts your account) you can request to withdraw your money. Be sure to deactivate the software if possible so you can still have something left to withdraw..

  204. Got another one that’s surfaced from Secret Millionaire Method, called Cash Cloud Machine. Also Insured profits is being pushed by Norbett Secret German Banker which means he is bogus too.

  205. Dear Michael,

    I am Benson. I was approached by my friend to trade with

    I am not sure whether it is a legits Broker. Please advise. Thanks.

    1. Hi Benson, Never seem this brand anywhere.. it could be a local binary options broker in Japan. I would recommend going with a reputable, well-known broker instead of an unknown brand.

  206. hi,

    do you know anything about insured profits? the people are dave, ginny and steve. are they legit or a scam?

  207. I don’t really know about tokyobot, but they deal only with spotfn according to sign up site on google. Spotfn is a scam I’m very sorry to have fallen for, so I would be very carefull of tokyobot. I wanted it until I found out they deal only with a scam broker.

  208. I opened a binary options account with RBOptions out of Canada 3 months ago and when I went
    to withdraw the rest of my balance in my account of $842.00 USD, RBOptions never credited
    my Card back as they stated on their web site….. I have been waiting for over 1 Month now and they only say it was sent, but they lie . Then they gave me some transfer numbers that they said was proof of the money transfer. I called my Bank Card Company and they said RBOptions credited me 1 Dollar, and then took the dollar back so their would not be a paper trail I guess…. Oh then they tried to take additional $500. off my card too …. Stay Away From This Scam Broker !

  209. Hi I want to tell all your readers, do not go through and fall for these mentioned sites. Secret Millionaire Method, Insured Profits looks like another scammy site and broker is options area. These are scams I fell for it funded an account and after offers not happening realised I had been scammed. Funny thing is I emailed them to cancel which they haven’t replied to they called me after starting the account and said do you want insurance for your funds if so had to deposit another $3000. This is where I got suspicious. I have realised I have lost this money so I am trading it away, only problem is I keep winning. Please help in crushing these deceptive websites by putting all over the internet.

  210. I am having a problem getting a withdrawal from OptionsXO, did not received a bonus still having problems.

    1. Hi Ravji, I don’t have any feedback for you as of yet since it’s a new product but I noticed many traders asking about the Tokyo Bot in the last few days so please keep us posted with your results!

  211. Great site: Great comments: Great advice ….
    Just joined Daily Binary Profits V7 via Titantrade. Down $70… Would suggest withdrawal and close account??

  212. Hey Mike: Just got an email on “7 Figure Traveler” It sounds a lot like “Profit in 60 Seconds”. Most of the online reviews are by affiliates selling the program. Any word on this program? Cheers!

  213. Hi mike,is TOKYO BOT software legit? I just received email from them. Try to check in youtube but no information. Need advice.thanks.

  214. Why I didn´t find this Website before!??!

    I transfered on the 2nd of july Money to optionsmaker, till today they not funded my account. I never reach somebody at Support. What the f..K
    I hope I have a Chance to get my cash back, cause it was a bank transfer

  215. I tried making use of and also got scammed . I deposited 1000USD and never got it back when i tried to make a withdrawal . they also promised to send signals using the golden goose methods but it was all a scam

  216. Hi Michael,
    You are really a great man and I would like to ask you which option is safe for trading here in GCC countries (Arabian gulf countries), at least 3 options please. Thank you so much

    1. Hi Shah, thank you for the feedback! You should be able to access the EU regulated brokers. OptionTime, Topoption and Interactiveoption are great choices! I reviewed all 3 on the blog, you can find the reviews in the right-side menu. If you have questions on any broker in particular you can email me at Cheers! Mike

  217. Hello,
    Many adverts are placed on the internet about a new Binary product by the name of THE $100K CLUB.
    Has anyone had any experience with these guys ?

  218. I tried using an auto-trader called Binary Chaos, and got totally hosed by it. After watching their video, and downloading their “free” software, I opened an account with SpotFN to the toon of $250, and let them do their thing….
    So the first 2 days were alright, they placed 3 trades, and won twice, increasing my balance, so I got happy with my decision. Unfortunately, they did not continue in this winning streak at all, and after one week, they had placed 7 trades in my account, and lost 5 of them. Yes, they lost FIVE OUT OF SEVEN trades they made, with MY MONEY, reducing my balance to $165.
    Turns out their so called “system” is just guessing, and gambling other people’s money. The video that reeled me in did not mention that the system was just flipping a coin, and crossing your fingers, all while throwing away someone else’s money on your random bets. But unfortunately, that is what they do, and i have since deactivated their auto-trader, and am trying to recoup what I can after this trip off scam set me back my food money for the next 2 weeks.
    Moral, with Binary Options, there is no system, except random guessing, and anyone who says they have a skill in it, is just lucky sometimes, SAVE YOU MONEY, and STAY AWAY from Binary trading!!

  219. Hi Mic, Your website is Awesome!!!!. so many peoples are cheated from fake binary option. You saved them, thank you very much. My name is sareesh from INDIA (Bangalore). in india whether i can work Topoption or Goption. If it’s not working in India, please guide me any trusted binary option in India. Thaks and god bless you

  220. Hi great website Mike. I’m from India I found auto trader software. I almost deposited to their broker but this great website save my huge money. Thank God and bless you mike..

  221. Hi….great site you have here! this “bot” is a scam. Do you recommend ANY automated bot systems that actually work and produce good results?

  222. I found a new automatic trading robot called

    It claims it can deliver ~70% per month.

    Has anyone tried this and what is your result?

    Mike, I’d like to take your view also. Thank you.


  223. is a complete scam.I have lost $3,600.Continue to ring me wanting more money.I have emailed them to stop emailing me and ringing me but they wont stop.Nasty people.

  224. I have heard that getting a BONUS can cause you t have to reach a certain limit before you can withdraw – are there any good , honest companies that do NOT give a bonus or does it really matter.

    1. Hi Craig, All binary options brokers can add a bonus to your account but they have to ask you first, in most cases it’s better to avoid the bonus unless it’s a company you trust %100 and you’re confident you will continue trading for at least a few weeks.

  225. Hi Mike,

    Have you heard about safetraderapp? I received an email regarding their software. What do you think about the software?

    1. Hi Sagar, it looks and sounds like a scam…”number two..shut the hell up” (quote from the intro video) …sounds very fishy but so far I’ve yet to receive any feedback on this one. Most auto traders are worthless, if you’re looking for a reliable auto trading software I can recommend the AQI software, it’s listed on my recommended binary options signals page. Cheers! Mike

  226. Is there ANY trustworthy binary broker around?
    I have also lost USD$ 4100.00 which binary brokers BANC 54 stole from me.Are these brokers known to anyone? Their website looks great, but they do not respond to any mails once they receive money fraudulently from your account. They will clean out your account if you do not immediately stop ALL payments with your Bank.

    1. Hi Carl, there are a 100+ companies right now and many of the newer brands turn out to be a fraud. The safest way to trade is with a fully EU regulated and licensed broker with a proven reputation. Three brands I can recommend are OptionTime and Topoption both offer a $100 minimum and they are %100 safe and TitanTrade which is my favorite broker for US traders.

      Checkout the complete reviews:

      TitanTrade Review
      OptionTime Review
      Topoption Review

      Good luck with your trading! Mike

  227. I noticed people ask about the “one percent club”. I tried this, was told to sign up for account with “OptionsArea,com” when I tried to fund it I had some concerns and contacted them, and ended giving them my credit card info and permission to withdraw. Fortunately for me they made a mistake on entering details and it didn’t work for them, so the customer service contacted me. when I answered the phone I looked at the id readout and it said VaultOptions! I asked the man why his id said that when he was supposed to be calling for optionsarea and he said he “had to borrow a phone because his was getting fixed.” Now we know who is really behind this new site and I wanted you to know. Also I noticed some people on your site saying Bank De Binary hustled them for a lot of money and then stopped helping them when they lost all following their signals. I also was taken for over $25,000 by them and want you to know that also!

  228. Just to let everyone know that ‘100 dollars in 60 seconds’ is at best a 50% outcome,I put $250 in, when I checked last, before inactivating auto trading it was about 11 losses to 8 winning trades.This could be profitable if you could find a way to allow one trade only, but it seems that it places too many trades at a time.Also, manually trading on the broker, Option Rally seems to have a lag sometimes of about 4-6 digits, if the same is occurring with auto trade, it probably explains a lot of the dud trades.As well, I think that trading metals etc is a scam because it counts in 59 digits when buying but, I suspect counts much smaller in expiries.I was given about 1500 more than I asked on platinum and a considerable difference on Gold and oil.I suggest traders give credence only to currencies and stocks!!

  229. Thanks for all the input on this site. I got invited to a binary site: could never find anything on this guy as a broker. Did find several reports he a scammer and people not getting response as customers and money gone! I laid low and am glad for your reviews to assist me into returning to work and not dealing with binary scammers.

    1. Hi Thomas, this website Richard-Broker redirects you to Amberoption which is a fake binary options site, they scam many traders! It’s definitely a company you want to avoid! Cheers! Mike

    1. Hi Anandh, I don’t recommend this product. I received a few emails from traders who tried it already and they’re not reporting any success. It must be some kind of a scam.

  230. Appreciate your response Michael. It is a shame that these sites are running wild, without any regulation. With people like yourself and an informative thread from your subscribers, we must do our continued due diligence. Many thanks.

  231. First of all thank you Mike for all that you do. It is so nice to have a “safe haven” to come to when it comes to Binary Options. My inbox is constantly filled with the “latest” get rich methods on a daily basis. The most recent are: “60K in 60 seconds” using Tiger Options and “Binary Chaos” (previously mentioned by you) using RB Options. Any thoughts?

    1. Hi Steve, I would stay away from Binary Chaos…Ever since they launched this service (two weeks ago) I’ve been getting lot’s of negative feedback. The reported performance is somewhere around %45-%50 .. FAR from what they claim. 60K in 60 seconds looks and feels like another fake “get rich” scheme with a great design yet nothing behind..They build an email list an promote the same software with different names/pitch pages every time..many people seem to fall for this BS again an again..

  232. There’s another binary sustem on the market called “Binary Chaos”…
    And they are promoting it on TradeQuicker Binary broker.
    Have you heard anything about this system and the broker? Please let me know.
    Cheers Bud.

  233. Another scam broker is Setoption. As I was new to BO I deposited $250 to practice with. They offer a 50% bonus with that amount. Of course I lost that money in the first 2 days. They said the bonus can take up to 7 days to be credited. Two weeks and a few emails later, no replies, no bonus. Keep away from this lot.

    1. Hi Fares, It sounds kind of suspicious because I don’t see why would a broker give you free money without any type of commitment on your part. The bonus probably includes a restriction that requires you to reach a high trade volume before you can withdraw your funds, but either way.. you need to get something in writing with all the details and restrictions that are associated with the offer before you take it. If they’re able to provide you with something in writing you can forward it to me and I’ll read it carefully, you can reach me at Cheers! Mike

  234. Hi, i am new in this and just sign up with this binary brokers ‘super options’. Did anyone have any comment on this brokers?

    1. Hi Chuck, It looks terrible..and on the Lions Den Trading seems like a brand new site, some of the sections the website are incomplete and they have a very poor trust ranking as well.. but let’s see if anyone else can provide with some feedback. I don’t plan to try this one..

  235. Please do not ever use ZOOMTRADER at all, its a big scam.. As soon as you start making gains, they will restrict making trades which might give you gains, sometimes, trades which won are not even shown in the trade history, they are just cancelled. The main scumbag on Zoomtrader team is Tyson Wilson, please please avoid using this broker. I have already filed numerous complaints to various regualtory bodies, hope they take action soon on these guys.

  236. Stay away from, they are a scam, trying calling them and you will see that they are not legit, I’m fighting to get my $1000 back, they sent me an email that my withdrawal was approved and it can take 5-10 days, is been more than that and they are not replying to my emails anymore.

    Do not do business with

  237. I am so glad that I found you on you tube when I was doing some research on these binary options sites that I keep seeing every where. I was soooo close to parting with my money. It was only that I was on an iPad that I had technical issues when I was trying to join binary cash converter!

    I owe you a pint!

    Keep up the good work :h

  238. Hi Mike, it’s Kurt here,

    Can I trade successful 60 seconds binary options with signals, what are your recommendation on the best signals provider?
    You know anything about “Binary Matrix Pro” signals?

    Thank you,

  239. Hello mike
    I m from kuwait and im new in trading , i have singed up for two broker amber option and option now . What do you think of these two brokers ?

    1. Hi Hissa, Amber Option is getting a lot of negative feedback. There’s also a pretty nasty review on RipoffReport.. Hopefully you didn’t deposit a large sum of money. Optionow is a better choice even though they’re also relatively new but I never hear anything bad about them. Cheers! Mike

  240. Hello,

    I opened a managed binary options account with a company online. For almost 2 months, they traded my account and I watched it grow. However, almost 3 weeks ago, I requested for a withdraw which was approved but I have not received the money on my account. My account manager blocked me on skype and I cannot even contact them on their website. How do you advise i deal with this?

    1. Hi Faith, that’s bad news! Which company are we talking about? I would recommend filing a complaint with the credit card fraud department. There should be a number of the back of your credit card. In some countries you will need to contact your bank. If you are not sure how to file the complaint you can also contact me at Good luck! Mike

  241. Hi Mike,
    Great job you’re doing here. I saw your site a few hours too late but it made my practical class complete in the complex learning world of binary options. I’d just credited my account with (RBOptions as broker) 250USD though they kept calling to tell me how much I was missing by not going beyond the minimum. The robot made 12 trades won 4 and lost only 8 and my account’s down to 20USD all within a few hours.
    Pls keep up the great work.

  242. Any further info on that Section 75? Which countries does that apply to?USA only, or is that a world credit institutional element? Just wondering…
    Again, thanks, not just to you Michael (yes, people do need you!), but also, to all those bringing light to this entire element!

  243. I signed up with Auto Binary System from Roger Pierce and they recommended that I opened an acct with Optionow, I was called also by an acct manager when trying to open an acct with them, and then I had to sent picture id and just the last 4 digits of my CC and a utility bill, the rep called me several times and I called the # listed in her email which doesn’t work, and I called the UK # and they hang up as soon as I asked for her, I called second time and they said that they would call me back that the phone line was really bad, anybody had a similar experience with, I’m going to request my money back and open an identity protection acct of some sort, I”m starting to believe that these people are a scam, the rep doesn’t reply my emails now they list an UK address but they are registered in Gibraltar, I would appreciate your input.

  244. Hi,
    I went through a lot of complaints sent to you. I feel so sorry for them but I can advice that you reply any one paying any company to pay by CREDIT CARD. Let them Google “SECTION 75” and take time and read and Study it, Follow what to do and the CREDIT CARD ISSUER will refund their money without any sweat and it is FAST. Mannilat16

    1. Thank you for the input on Section 75. I plan to post a very informative video on my YouTube channel and detail all the options available for traders. I hope this will make their life easier when dealing with some of these scammers.

  245. I have terrible days in these days. I already had lots of debts cause I had cheated by some bastard and he stole my money away. And I tried to find a way to solve this problem. And I met binary option and I chose a wrong company “Global Trader 365”.
    At first, I put 1000$ and they gave me bonus and I lost them in a sec. And then they asked to put more money to take the money back. They assured me to get my money back if I try again. And when I lost them again, original broker avoid my call and messages and never call again. And another broker call me to put more money again giving me a hope again.
    I was stupid to trust them over and over. I thought another broker would be different. But eventually they were same. I lost more than 20k and couldn’t get any withdraw. I lost everything and left only more debts now. I want to go to jail all together.
    The people who made me into this are named “Jasmine, Sarah, Lourie, and Ramsey” They change their words all the time, and when the time they can’t keep their promises comes, they start to avoid me. That’s their way.
    Now I lost my future and hope. I hope you can help me…at least purnish them, please.

  246. No Mike I did not sign up with them, I follow you about a month or two and one thing I learned in this time is ASK, if you are a new bee otherwise you lose a lot of money.
    I’am glad I found you on the Internet and thanks for all your advise.

  247. Hello Mike,

    Today I received a mail from

    What can you tell me about this signal software?

  248. Hi Mike, there is a new money making scam called Millionaire’s Society whose recommended binary options broker is RBOptions. Just to let you know since you do not recommend RBOptions. Cheers! Kenneth

    1. Hi Kenneth, thank you very much for sharing. I’ve been following this scam from day one.. here is a review that puts them in their place Millionaire’s Society Scam! The nicer the service looks in terms of marketing/pitch page and all the bells and whistles, the higher the chance it’s a scam. REAL TRADERS don’t have time to invest so much work and though into the marketing aspect of launching such a service..

  249. DO NOT invest your hard earned money with OPTION MINT Binary Broker in Toronto, Canada. You Will Not See it Ever Again. Their Customer Service Dept. (and con-artist CHAD) will LIE and SCAM and tell STORIES to you so they get every cent of your BONUS AND lie to you to make you want to deposit more money so you can lose it as fast as they can make a phone CALL to YOU. And they’ll keep calling you until you’ve LOST it ALL at their Cust.Service command. Their customer service dept. does Not Want to Keep their traders happy at all. They don’t even want to Keep them AT ALL.

  250. Hi Michael, just wondering if you know much about,all I’ve seen is they’re new,probably Romanian, & I just ignored a call from them coming from Canada.Any info?
    Cheers for your hard work!

    1. Hi JM, I appreciate your feedback. Option Area is one of the newer companies and I’m just now starting to hear about them but I couldn’t find enough reviews. Just promotional reviews at this point but if anyone has any personal experience with them please share with us. Cheers! Mike

  251. Hi Micheal, i want to try the auto quick income. Their recommended broker is could you confirm that this is the right broker?

    1. Hi Sayang, I know they select the broker for clients based on the country’s range of IP and Big Option is usually for non US traders. I haven’t heard anything bad and I researched this broker very carefully. They are licensed and regulated so you are definitely in good hands and the AQI sofware if really good. I listed it as one of my top 3 binary options signals in my latest video. Cheers! Mike

  252. Thanks Michael, much appreciated for the confirmation. Expected a scam. Glad I went through you first before executing. You the man!!

  253. Hi Michael, I wrote to you earlier but I guess you are quite busy so I write here. Would wish to know about Free Cash Trick under Chris Mason who says he is going to give you $500 of his own money to trade with first but his recommended broker is OptioNow. Any idea of this please?

    1. Thank you for the comment Kenneth, I know about this offer and they are working in connection with other scams. Instead of calling it a bonus, they lie and claim that they will give you some of their “own” money”…but nothing in life is free. The match bonuses offered by the brokers, which is what they’re referring to, will lock your funds and restrict your ability to withdraw your money until you generate a really high volume of trades. It’s not recommended at all, the best way to start trading is with a minimal budget and without any bonuses, gifts or anything else. Also avoid the “free training” offered by most brokers in exchange for a higher deposit. Here is a video I posted on this topic a few months ago. Higher Deposit for a FREE Training Warning Video! The only reliable Auto Trader I am familiar with is the AQI Soft and it’s listed on the Signals Page. Cheers! Mike

  254. I was looking into signing up with the Binary Matrix Pro Signal program which charges a penny on each signal but you have to sign up with Platinum Traders. I don’t see either of these list on your site. Can you tell me if you think they are Legit? Thank you Becky

  255. Mike I want to thank you for all the great information that has saved me the headache of learning of these scam option companies the hard way.

  256. I’m doing homework on Binary International as to their legitimacy /results .They are the
    broker,and tie into signal software with ITM Financial. Anyone using them,or whatever experiences you’ve had would be appreciated

  257. hi Michael,

    Can you advice me if i want to start the binary trade system, where i can deposit not much and which i can withdraw without much hassles,I am based here in South Africa.

    1. Hi Annie, Thank you for visiting my blog. From South Africa you can join most brokers. For fast withdrawals I can recommend TitanTrade, they offer same-day withdrawals. Checkout my TitanTrade Review . In the review section you can find additional reviews for Topoption, OptionFair and Capitaloption which are also known for fast withdrawals but from my personal experience I can tell you that titanTrade is really fast in terms of withdrawal approvals and processing. Good luck with you trades! Cheers! Mike

  258. Hi Michael, can you give me the method of approach on how to cancel a broker account and get back my deposit?

    1. Hi Claude, Each situation is different and it depends on how long ago you deposited, the broker, the method of payment and other relevant information. Please email me all the details at so I can evaluate this better and hopefully get help you get your money back in the case that your request is legitimate. Have a great weekend! Mike

  259. Dear,LSE
    I receive an e-mail in mid-April where they propose a collaboration platform with the miller – see that expose the ‘ authorization FTA and others after a request made you decide to invest unanswered € xxxxx . Following their manager Mr. Roberto Lamorotta introduced me to some interesting results and very good and continues to ask for additional payments to increase my earnings .
    Force of its own with a further payment of my credit card number and credits on my account elusive another 1000 € from my ip address is never match any authorization of such additional € 1,000 . Later Mr. Lamorotta asked to pay an additional xxxx € by bank and more € xxxxx more with other visa card . I am still waiting for FTA tell me if the miller – is authorized and do not authorize . no bank and no credit with the visa .
    Now, after several phone calls to their number in Italy 06 * 94,806,242 non-existent now , and after repeated requests for accreditation of my money and my gain I think it is appropriate that you be aware that there are structures that collect savings authorizations under your hypothetical maybe without having any these permissions . I would like to recover my money and see the ‘ FTA approval of this mysterious miller –


  260. Banc 54 is a scam. Site location is hidden. I have been scammed $ 24,000. On 4 different occasions, $ 6,000 was were put through my credit card without my approval. Each time, I queried this their account department was blamed. William Tence, Justin Delacorte and Henry Shaw are the account managers. Similar incidents have been reported on the Forexpeacearmy web site.

  261. Hi Michael

    Have you any views on ‘The Wealthy Trader’ and UK I have requested a withdrawal but have not had a response as yet.



  262. Hi Michael,
    I received several emails from Stuart Locke who is offering his so called Trade Pair software in his sales video
    in combination with the LBinary broker. Could you you give me your opinion about? Thank you in advance.


  263. Hi Micheal,
    Where can on I find a brokerage that
    provides a practice account which I can use with either a robot or signal provider?

    1. Hi Lindsay, the only issue is that in all cases the Auto Traders are connected to a live account, I am not familiar with a service that you can connect to a demo account with a binary options broker but that’s a good question. I’ll definitely look around and check if this is available anywhere. Cheers! Mike

  264. Hey Micheal I’m planing to invest into 24 Options…I wanted to ask you how is 24 options…have you heard any complaints or issues on withdrawal..?? Please reply…Thank you in advance!

    1. 24Option is not bad. They are fully EU regulated and they offer a nice trading platform. There are a few better choices in my opinion but in this case it’s a matter of preference. Have a great weekend! Mike

  265. Hello Do you have any feedback on German Binary robot by Norbert ex German banker.Receiving a lot of marketing on this. Looks and smells like a scam

  266. hi Michael,
    thanks for saving me from the scam of one two trade. they called me today, and keep pushing me to deposit $1000 to their account and offer me 100% bonus. thanks god that i found ur website^^
    now i am trading with Topoption that u highly recommended.
    so far, i am still a newbies. can u recommend me some website that i can check financial news and article ?thanks~~~

  267. Hi, I’ve just engaged Binary Option Robot,(free download demo) my modest account of $200 was reduced to $3.60 in about 3 hrs then like an idiot I reloaded another $200 which is now at $49.I would have been better tossing a coin,if this piece of crap software was as good at winning as it is at loosing it would be brilliant!

    1. It’s a good question because IQoption is a brand new company so I don’t have enough details right now, generally I would suggest avoiding new companies without enough reviews.

    1. Hi Manav, I receive tons of complaints concerning Auto Binary Signals – ABS . They created the system in a way that confuses traders and most people end up giving up because their signals are too hard to work with, the ones who are able to make use of the system, report getting around %40-%50 ITM, Auto Binary Signals is a SCAM! Here is an Auto Binary Signals Review If you are looking for a reliable signals service try or the Option Bot 2. I included both on my list of binary options signals services. Cheers! Mike

  268. hi there, I’m from Philippines, and I’m planning to enter the binary option trading,. which broker do i have to trust? thanks

  269. Hi Mike, I am curious if you have any info on Binary International ?
    I have already opened an account on Goptions but I am thinking of opening one with, what do you think ? Thanks

  270. hi everybody iam victime of tow company they work as binary option and iam warning you not to joine this tow compnay called and so pls becarfull they are playgames with your money and at then end you see your self you are out of your wallet same what happen to me and i need somebody if they can help me to complane against them to get my money back please contact me pls

  271. Hi there , Im from MALAYSIA . Can you guys please suggest me a trustworthy binary trading option. I got to know about STOCKPAIR.COM. Is it trusted or is it a scam too ?

  272. All, Update.

    After 3 weeks’ time of my withdrawal request, I have been keep emailing TraderXP’s CS and the account manager, Mazen Obaida, for withdrawal.

    Today, I just received a call from another guy, Adam, asking me to open a trade claiming that if I can follow his instruction, I can double my money in my account and withdraw half of the account. If I am going to follow he will open the trade HIMSELF and TRADE FOR ME until he blow up the whole account.

    Besides, he kept saying that I must follow his instruction before I can make any further withdrawal!

    Don’t you think it is a BLACKMAIL?

    Don’t trade with this company. I have lost over $5000 and experienced the worst customer service in my whole life. And what’s more are my ID copy and Bank account numbers and credit card number are fully exposed to this company!


  273. Michael, who do you recommend for those of us trading from the US. TOPOPTION will not accept a US address for a real account.

  274. Mike congrats for this amazing job of helping others from the word of scam in internet.
    I have a question am from oman and new to trades which site would u recommend which will be suitable for me especialy when it comes to withdrawals?

    Regards and keep up the good work.

  275. pushbuttonmiilionaire,, all are same, and you are not going to win 50% , if you want to test yourself, just join the program, and sign up with any of the brokers(use fake phone and secondary email), but don’t fund, watch the live trades coming through, take paper trade or trade in demo account, i guess in 1 week, the account will be half.

    I have tried 2014only,I used only for 4 days , and it is 3-4(loss), I stopped, and now trading with my broker recommendation and winning most of them.

    Don’t try richard server, says $499, if you keep on cancelling,you will get for $97.scrap don’t try……………

  276. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH ZENITH OPTIONS!! They will take your money and refused to return it. The customer Service at this company is HORRIBLE. This binary options provider is not regulated. They will tell you they are but the have to answer to no one. Zenith Options took my 5,000 dollars and refuse to return the money after they told me I would have a 2 day trail and I did so and after 24 hours I requested my money back and they will not answer emails, phone inquiries,Skype, or chat. They did not even call me to welcome me aboard. They will laugh in your face when you give your money as the keep denying your withdrawals. This company is a SCAM. Worst of all, the are based out of Cyprus.BINARY OPTIONS LIVE SIGNALS is no good at all the recruit people to join safe24options and Zenith options with their supposed high win rate. You put your money in and you would be better off going outside and burning it all up. Ar least you get to keep the ashes.

  277. Hello,
    is here anybody from Germany, Switzer-
    land or Austria ( German speaking)
    whi is always very intersted or involved in Binary Options Trading.

    Best Regards

  278. Mike,

    I tried the Push Button Millionaire. I swear it is a scam. win rate less than 30%, ie it is even worse than 50-50 shot.


  279. Hi Mike, I am so grateful I found your site before I have funded any accounts. Any info on push button millionaire ? Thanks.

  280. Hi Tommy

    Just call their toll free number during the european time zone, shout at them. Also who ever is your account manager, ask him as well as his manager.They takes time but you will get it.

    You explain them, how you tricked with the bonus.


  281. Kiran,

    I hope what you said TraderXP will proceed my $5000 withdrawal request is right. But as of today (26 Mar 2014), it’s been 5 working days already, and they did not response to any of my emails. My withdrawal request shown in the Banking History is still “Pending”.

    I had already asked my bank to terminate my credit card already and re-issued a new one.

    I will give you update.



    1. I don’t recommend RBoptions after reading that they’re website address in Canada is fake! I don’t trust them and the reviews are concerning. If you are trading from outside of the US, checkout my Topoption review and if you are trading from the US, I can recommend TitanTrade. Both brokers have a very clean reputation. On this page Broker Reviews you will find the reviews for all of my recommended brokers. Cheers! Mike

  282. Yes, I was scammed by Binary Matrix Pro. Do not trust any of them. I recently talked to them and they tried to scam me AGAIN.

  283. Hi Tommy

    Traderxp will send you the money,but it will take time, as you are in the Gold status, they should send with in 2-3 working days.TraderXP wants customers with minimum $5000 or above, I have seen the accounts of customers, they will give guaranteed signals on a daily basis,most of them are very good, like 5/7, 6/9 or 7-8/10, mostly it will be above 68-73% predictions correct. But I recommend there are lot of good brokers out there, where you can pull the money and try with some one else.Every withdrawal they will charge you $25, even back to credit card.

    Please file a case with your credit card company, for taking the money with out your permissions.These complaints are common with traderxp.Also ask bank to reissue a new credit card. My card they have pulled $400 to trading account with out my permission.

    Do not accept any bonus like, losing a trade, christmas bonus, questionnaire bonus etc. You have to trade the bonus amount + actual amount multiplied by 20.

  284. Mike, have you any info on Binary Matrix Pro? They just started to push there software. They say there verified with some type of seal?? Thanks.
