I know this is old, but I stumbled upon this subject by chance and i don't understand what's bad about the 'cent' accounts.
I'm new in this forex world, and from my point of view, there is not much of a difference. The profit these people get in their accounts is the same, the only difference is the total ammount of money in the account, so what's the problem?
You are going to check the performance not the quantity of their money.
And if they want to scam people, i don't think they are going to make good trades, if they make good trades they don't need to scam people... i don't see the point.
