UK Trading Scam Warning List – Forex/Crypto/Equities/Investment/Options/Fixed Income… etc etc
I set this blog up in February, I had no intention of reporting on scams but I have realised we are in an epidemic. I can no longer keep up so I am putting up a list here to keep track on whether I have written an article.
Further, after the past two weeks dealing with the FCA (they lost a web form and 2 emails sent to four FCA addresses, they also committed a huge data breach in the same week releasing 1600 complainants details) I now know the FCA warning list is totally out of date and severely limited.
I am only covering the UK at present and for now it is going to be held on this page. If it grows into something I will be moving it to its own internet domain address.
If you have another scammer – report it below or email me (above) I will add it.
This list is for people I deem scammers – frankly I don’t care if you agree or disagree – I know what I am doing and I know what I am looking at.
People in this list will have committed enough for me to put them in;
- Running martingale Expert Advisors.
- Running broker affiliate scams – getting people to deposit £300-1000.
- Lying/being fraudulent in what you say or by creating fake reviews.
- Trading on behalf of other people when not FCA authorised/regulated.
- No company/address/names listed.
- Limited company does not show any money passing through it.
- Selling a product so bad it is of zero benefit in trading.
I accept there are educators & course sellers in any industry however people in this list go in because I have researched and understood what they are doing, what they are about and their background.
This information is simply available by me entering their name into Google and pressing search.
This is the kind of list the FCA & Action Fraud (UK Police) need to work together on to publish and update, it should then be a point of reference for all media agencies and other UK regulators.
This is not a personal grudge list or competition – I have nothing to sell.
I am a mug that actually day trades for a living and I am sick to fucking death of seeing these people make hundreds of thousands of pounds a year for not trading – by selling total bullshit all on lies.
If someone is scamming (evidence gathered by simply searching Google, Companies House & the FCA Register) they go in this list – it is as simple as that.
If you genuinely believe you should not be on this list, raise a dispute by contacting me.
You will have been put on this list for good reason – If you are a bullshitter/fishing for information I will call you out and tell you to fuck off and update/create an article on you that will be picked up by the media and given to the Police and the FCA or your local Financial Authority – try me.
Please note I get nothing for doing this, I get a serious amount of oddballs coming at me with daily abuse complete with death threats every other week.
