Investments in binary options and foreign exchange (forex) markets can pay off if you are smart, but overseas criminals are ready to take your money. They’ll promise huge returns on investments, then suddenly stop crediting your account or honoring withdrawal requests. Soon, they ignore your emails and calls. Then, they’re gone. And things can get worse: Often, they trick you into providing photocopies of passports or other identification and use it to steal your identity.
Foreign exchange (forex) fraud is on the rise. Professional-looking websites make big promises, and even smart people can be fooled.
High-Yield Investment Programs
These often are Ponzi schemes. High returns are promised for a small investment into a forex fund. The initial investors, however, receive “returns” using money from newer investors. When there are no more investors, the scheme collapses and the owners vanish with the funds.
Automatic Trades By “Robots”
Some forex trading systems use automatic trades that can earn you money even while you sleep. However, some “robot” systems are not well-regulated and they are easy to manipulate.
High Costs Up-Front
Watch out when system sellers offer programs at very high prices and justify doing so because you’re guaranteed amazing results.
Always Be Wary
New forex scams arise all the time. Sophisticated scammers are always seeking ways to separate you from your money.

How Digital Forensics Corp. Identifies Perpetrators
Criminals who harass, bully or blackmail their victims take great pains to hide their identities. They use anonymous social media accounts, hide behind false email addresses, pretend to be other people. But all online interactions leave digital footprints, and our expert examiners know how to follow them. In many cases, our analysts can track down the domains and IP addresses used to commit harassment or extortion, pinpointing the original source of the crime. If you think you know who is harassing you, our experts can cross-reference IP addresses to find out for sure. All that evidence can be taken to police, or to court.
