Common Scam Tactics
Binary Option Robots, Secret Systems and “Methods” (e.g. The Aussie Method, The Oxford Method)
These are a relatively new phenomenon in the binary options market. We are still putting together some detailed posts on this topic but our advice is to AVOID ALL OF THEM as 95%+ are scams designed to steal your money.
Either the software they give you will DELIBERATELY LOSE MONEY after a certain period of time or the scammers will have partnered with or created a FAKE BROKER where it is impossible to withdraw your money and they will stop answering your calls.

Unfortunately, as there is so much money in Binary Options trading it has attracted all types of scammers and schemes designed to STEAL and ROB you of your capital.

2018 Binary Option Scams
2018 was a major year of change for the binary options industry. We saw major crackdowns from governments, regulators and payment providers. The most major piece of news being the ESMA ban on binary options in the UK and EU.
While we disagree bans being placed on binary options trading, we welcome the shakeout of the criminal elements in the industry.
2019 Binary Option Scams
We predict 2019 will be a year of consolidation in the industry. Many of the scam binary option brokers are our of business and the dishonest ones will be squeezed out. Some EU and UK based brokers will no longer be able to offer their services and will evolve. While new, serious and legitimate players will take their place.
